QPAD |MK-50 PRO GAMING MECHANICAL KEYBOARD

Pro Gaming Mechanical Keyboard
Unlike your average keyboard, that functions through rubber domes, forcing you to press each key all the way down in order for the stroke to register, the MK-50 feature true mechanical switches with unmatched accuracy and feel. No more pressing with full-force in order to activate the keys.The QPAD keyboard will respond to your every stroke in an instant.

Other boards normally have a short life span and wear out quickly, resulting in unresponsiveness, delays and a dull, clunky feel to the keys. The key switches on MK-50 are built to last 50 million strokes, and the QPAD mechanical key technology provides distinct feedback and puts you in absolute control. The travel distance of the keys is set to 4mm with an actuation point at 2mm.

For gamers, it’s all about the feel and functionallity and that is where the QPAD MK-50 truly shines! With a full size keyboard layout in 3 sections, mechanical key switches, media keys and full N-Key roll over, it’s the perfect gaming keyboard. Nuff said...

A stripped down version of the MK-85, the QPAD MK-50 offers the same rock-solid quality and feel, as its bigger sibling, but without the extras. What you see is what you get, namely:

• Full N-Key roll over with PS/2
• Cherry MX Red mechanical switch technology
• Ultra-durable keys, designed to last 50 million strokes
• Gold plated USB connectors 
• Media keys for volume control, play, pause and skip tracks

Instegsmodellen MK-50 Pro bjuder trots det relativt låga priset på en mycket trevlig tangentbordsupplevelse. Modellen är precis som de mer påkostade varianterna byggd som en stridsvagn och osar av kvalitet. Den som är på jakt efter ett mekaniskt tangentbord med mekaniska brytare och inte behöver några extra finesser har ett utmärkt alternativ i Qpad MK-50.

Das Angebot an brauchbaren mechanischen Tastaturen ist um zwei interessante Vertreter reicher geworden. Soviel kann man guten Gewissens schon einmal festhalten. Bleibt nur die Frage offen, ob sich die MX-Red-Taster von Cherry in der Praxis bewährt haben. Dies kann man im Bezug auf das reine Gaming eindeutig mit Ja beantworten, im Büro hingegen wird man jedoch um eine gewissen Einarbeitungszeit nicht herum kommen. Das haptische Feeling der Cherry-Taster ist über jeden Zweifel erhaben und wird den Anwendern und Liebhabern dieser speziellen und selten verwendeten Taster sicher Freude machen.

"Detta handlar om ett tangentbord som andas kvalitet och svettas prestanda på bekostnad av funktioner och extraprylar. Efter en liten stunds träning med fingertopparna är det väldigt trevligt både för spelande och för skrivande. Detta är givetvis mycket personligt, och jag vet användare som fullkomligt älskar när det låter KLICK så att det skrämmer grannens hundar när man trycker på en tangent, men personligen passar Cherry MX Red mig som handen i handsken."

Brutal CS

"Att släppa en nedbantad variant utav MK-85 tycker jag är en toppen idé. Alla har inte råd att punga ut 1500 kronor på ett tangentbord, många har inte råd att ens gå över 1000 kronor och då är det väldigt bra att man kan få ett mekaniskt tangentbord för omkring 800 kronor och det är tveksamt att man hittar ett sådant som är billigare i skrivande stund."

Techpower Up

QPAD's approach to scaling down the features of the MK-85 is quite successful. For a lot of people the USB 2.0 ports and audio pass-through are non-essentials and therefore offering a keyboard without these features at roughly half the price of the MK-85 whilst retaining the different key mechanism options is nothing short of brilliant. The QPAD MK-50 represents a solid keyboard which lets you choose the installed key mechanisms. The feature set is pretty basic but everything works well and the price is manageable if you are a dedicated gamer.

Some of the design choices a bit dodgy at best, the spot where the USB ports used to be on the MK-80/85 keyboard is scarcely blanked off with small plastic taps which looks bad and will allow dust and junk to enter the keyboard's core. For a keyboard that is intended for serious gamers going from LAN party to LAN party this is a relatively large oversight, on an otherwise well engineered keyboard.
For the price though it is hard to beat and therefore it is definitely a recommendable keyboard for anyone looking for a keyboard that allows you pick the key mechanisms.

Score: Editors choice

METKU

Right off the bat it's worth saying that the switching over to mechanical keyboards can take some getting-used-to, because coming from a semi-flat keyboard the keys are very high and the travel feels different. After getting over the initial shock, the touch of both versions feels very sturdy and high quality and as such all of these models can be recommended.

Score: Gold Award

Der schwedische Peripheriespezialist Qpad versucht sich zunächst durch den Einsatz der bisher noch relativ selten anzutreffenden, roten MX-Schalter eine Nische zu schaffen, verbaut auf Wunsch jedoch auch das übrige Cherry-MX-Sortiment. Gepaart mit einem stabilen Kunststoffchassis, das auf Basis der Soft-Touch-Oberflächen auch in Kombination mit der ergonomisch sehr guten Handballenablage eine angenehme Haptik vermittelt, bedruckten Tastenkappen sowie der N-Key-Rollover-Fähigkeit via PS/2-Anschluss (6KRO per USB) verkörpert die MK-50 eine ausgezeichnet puristische, mechanische Tastatur ohne aufgeblähten Funktionsumfang. Der veranschlagte Verkaufspreis von etwa 80 Euro rundet das in unseren Augen stimmige Angebot fair ab.

Fragbite

MK-50 har inga övriga finesser att skryta med och heller inte mjukvara att ta del av. Det är helt enkelt en budgetversion som i mitt tycke räcker alldeles utmärkt. Har man inget behov av massor med funktioner, inställningsmöjligheter eller makron så klarar man sig utmärkt med en ingångsmodell av mekaniska tangentbord som denna QPAD|MK-50

Score 7/10

MK-50 er en strippet versjon av MK-85. Den har ikke baklys, en ekstra hub til utstyr, og bruker en enkel PS/2-port inn i PCen. Det den har er ypperlig teknologi, fantastisk følelse og en kvalitet – sett bort ifra håndleddestøtten - som man kan stole på. Derfor er den også billig, noe som gir et veldig godt inntrykk av produktets helhet.

Behøver du ekstra USB-innganger, en flott estetikk, og helt moderne teknologi ved bruk av én USB-port så velger du MK-85. Vi kan ikke klage på det selv om det koster dobbelt så mye som lillebroren. Det er et flott utført tastatur som er veldig allsidig til både spilling og vanlig bruk. Det setter vi utrolig stor pris på.
