    (+) Suitable for modding mechanical keyboards due to its affordable price

    CONS

    - Cheap-looking key legends

    - Few extra features

    - Loud keys

    (-) Chunky and fixed USB cable

    Verdict: “Cheap but nails the basics – this is a decent entry into mechanical keyboards. […] The GK500 is a very cheap mechanical keyboard but its sturdy base and responsive keys mean it nails the essentials, making it a decent option for those on a tight budget. Plus, there’s plenty of scope for modding it.”
