A good keyboard should last you for years and the Sumvision Nemesis Mechanical Gaming Keyboard certainly feels like it’ll go the distance. It has a chunky design with loads of customisation options for a very attractive price.
The Nemesis feels like a solid keyboard, it’s got chunky keys, a chunky wire, and nice back lighting. There are side lights that make the keyboard appear to be lit underneath and while the majority of the keys have a green light, the WASD and arrow keys are red. The lights offer a number of different options, different brightnesses, different lit/unlit combinations etc.
Featuring anti ghosting keys (i.e. it recognises all keys pressed simultaneously) the Nemesis feels like a solid a keyboard. Unfortunately the review unit sent had an M key that didn’t always respond on first press, it sometimes took a couple of presses for it to register, so make sure you check all the keys upon arrival.
It’s likely you’ll want to do some typing at some point so it’s worth noting that while typing this was much louder than expected, drawing a couple of scowls while creating this review! The flip side of this was that it really added to the experience of Elite Dangerous as the chunky keys give great tactile feedback as if you’re in a spaceship.
The keyboard has a handy USB, headphone and speaker slot built in, brilliant for those who want quicker access than the back of a PC provides.
As well as multimedia keys often found on keyboards these days you also get some extras which are designed for gamers. There is a ‘Game mode’ key which disables the windows key to prevent you from accidentally pressing it and exiting mid game. The Nemesis also features programmable macro keys, programmable via the downloadable software driver, there are so many possibilities you’ll need to spend a bit of time testing out different configurations to really get the most from this keyboard.
If you are currently using a basic stock keyboard then this will be a good upgrade, it offers a lot of options and customisation for not a lot of money.
