Conclusion

AVF AKB-GK3 Gaming Keyboard is a membrane base gaming keyboard which equipped with high and patented technology, premium quality build, multi-functioning command and design with unique deluxe aluminum. Each of the keycap is removable so user can assured easy cleaning in the future and using patented character-emitting technology and there’s a total of 19 anti-ghosting keys for smoother gaming experience. User can change up to 7 fully controllable brightness backlit LEDs and there’s also auto changing LEDs mode. The body is made out of metal panel, which increase the durability and premium feeling when touch it. When it comes to typing experience, we feel it almost like using mechanical keyboard and, to be exact, it’s like using brown switch. The key is soft and there’s no stiff feelings when on long usage. The only issue we found is that the warranty of the products only covered for 3 months. If and only AVF could offer longer warranty duration, we believe it could be competing with other products and not only stay as for entry gaming peripherals.

Finally, I would like to say thank you to AVF Malaysia for giving me a chance to play and review with the AVF AKB-GK3 Gaming Freak Keyboard.
