Video feedback here is super interesting!!! Seems like people have finally accepted the shift to a cleaner / smaller board after years of full-sized being the norm. My quick thoughts on my process for this review: I'm still impressed with the overall product EVGA is putting out as their first major release. Yes, it looks dated and the keycap font is rough, but I've always been in camp function/features over looks. Happy to see many people, though, are more interested in TKL or 60% boards going forward! Whenever I show off those smaller boards, people usually complain that there's mo numpad and request more full-sized layouts, so I guess this just proves that I can't please everyone lol. Either way, just very interesting to see the feedback on this video with an overwhelming amount of people against the Z20. For something that can be picked up for $88 if you own other EVGA products and has this many features, thought it would be a good competitor to Corsair and Razer.

I was looking at the Steel Series boards and the Corsair boards as well. I wasn't sure what I wanted, then I went to Evga and saw how much this was being an "Elite" member, and ordered one immediately. It was a literal no brainier, and his review made me feel even better about this purchase as I had not seen it until after I bought it.

The font isn't nice to start with and will be only for a select audience and even if I did want a gamery font I wouldn't want it for more than a few days.

Oh gosh I bought this keyboard for $70 to "upgrade" my 2017 Corsair K70 LUX. I was kind of happy with my purchase since I got a soft wrist rest, macro keys, 4000hz, and optical switches. Came here to see some opinions and I suddenly feel bad about my purchase. For $70 usd is this really an upgrade to my 2017 K70? Or rather is it worth?

The reviews of this keyboard, along with the Z15 are not good. In reality, the keyboard has crippling issues. One of the most glaring are the keys. According to more than one report, they rattle, and in fact, as one types, the keys all rattle and wobble. Second is the keycap font. The look is very dated and "gamer" centric, though honestly, I don't know which gamer they are marketing these fonts to. The RGB is where another criticism comes in. Not very bright, rather weak in implementation, and the software looks very dated. All-in-all, these two keyboards are NOT going to be very well received by the gamer/typing community. I'll stick with my Apex 7, thank you! So, I don't think Corsair, SteelSeries, or Razer have anything to worry about with EVGA.

Lol sorry but this keyboard is over $200 CAD anywhere i could find it. The price is a downright lie and having owned their torx carbon mouse which was $140, and failed after 3 years, I won't be buying more of their products. Don't get me wrong, it and sounds good, but i simply wouldnt trust it for longevity over a company like Ducky in that price range. (going on 8 years with the shine3 with red switches and not a single double press).

Best thing about the Time of Flight sensor is if you use a computer in the room where you sleep. It’s super nice to have an RGB keyboard that turns off the lighting if you are not at the keyboard. It’s also nice to have the PC go to to sleep when it’s in the same room and you are trying to get some rest.

After tasting customizable keyboards, I don't think I'll ever come back to these "mainstream gaming" keyboards. Plus, optical switches aren't quite the bang that they are. They're too damn sensitive. The only solution I have was to switch the LK browns I have, with blues, otherwise, I'd be triggering keys with a strong enough cough and there's not much of a menu yet with opticals.

Another poor quality keyboard for almost 200 bucks. Thanks but no thanks. When you can get metal boards with decent switches and PBT double shot caps for under a 100 bucks (like durgod k320), these "gaming" board should never be recommended.

EVGA makes excellent graphics cards and power supplies, but stay FAR away from their keyboards. This thing is straight out of the early 2000's. ABS plastic keycaps and ugly alien looking font on the keys. Typing on this keyboard is like listening to a rattle snake. All of the keys rattle along with the modifier keys rattling and wobbling at the same time. Very unpleasant typing experience. Due to the keycaps being ABS plastic and not PBT, they show fingerprints constantly and the finish easily rubs off, leaving your keycap looking like the paint is flaking off. The RGB features on this keyboard are next to zero. Only a small selection of effects and they all get put on the list twice for some reason. The keyboard software is also stuck in the early 2000's aesthetically and has trouble communicating with the keyboard. The included wrist rest is an afterthought. It's paper thin and is completely non-functional as an actual wrist rest. Looks nice for sure but is completely unusable due to it not actually having any support foam between the leather material and the plastic frame. It's literally empty. In closing, stay far away from this keyboard, especially for the $150ish price they are asking for it. You can get a better keyboard from a Chinese knockoff brand for $30. Don't waste your money on EVGA keyboards. - 1 star amazon. review

Cons: Look, feel, sound, Price,keycaps,stabilizers, font, RGB throwup everywhere, switches. Volume scroll is a blessing but its HUGE Pros: wrist rest i guess I just dont understand the designers behind Corsair, Razer, Logitech, and EVGA with their boards. I can build a full keyboard for half the cost almost and sound, feel and look better than anything they throw out

If you like this keyboard, save your money, and wait for Corsair to refresh the K100 with high actuation switches, an LCD streamdeck button instead of the iCue logo button, and you got yourself a much better keyboard

It's truly scaring me every gaming keyboard is going with optical mechanical switches that are all low actuation, you cannot use these for anything but game, I want normal high actuation switches where you almost have to bottom it out, Corsair and other companies really gotta start giving more switch options, make an optical mechanical high actuation one. Corsair K100 needs this
