- TUF Gaming Mech-Brane Switches: Tuned to combine the desirable aspects of both mechanical and membrane key switches, TUF Gaming K5 debuts Mech-Brane switches that deliver a new gaming sensation: crisp, tactile clicks coupled with a quiet and soft cushioned touch. The full-height keys with 3.7mm travel distance offer swift and responsive actuations, while anti-ghosting and 24-key rollover ensures actions are reliably registered.
- Specialised Coating With Spill-Resistance: Inside and out, TUF Gaming K5 is built to provide years of service on the frontline. Its outer shell features a specialised coating that's fortified to withstand a battery of more than 10 stringent abrasion, friction, and perspiration tests. And spill-resistance up to 60ml ensures that accidents with cans or cups won't kill the action.
- Aura Sync RGB Lighting: Aura Sync gives you the freedom to personalise TUF Gaming K5 across five individually customisable zones, using the entire colour spectrum and various lighting effects. Large-font keycaps let more light through, so each character is bright and easy to see. And the illumination is easily synchronised with the extensive Aura Sync ecosystem, so it's a breeze to create a truly unique gaming den.
- Dedicated Media Keys: Control your audio without being distracted from the game. Dedicated media keys positioned on the upper left allow you to easily adjust volume using your keyboard hand, without ever lifting your trigger finger off the mouse.
- Ergonomic Wrist Rest And Adjustable Legs: With adjustable legs that provide two height positions and an integrated wrist rest, TUF Gaming K5 is ergonomically designed for optimal comfort.
- Fully Programmable With Onboard Memory: TUF Gaming K5 features fully programmable keys with on-the-fly macro recording support so you can configure your keyboard for personalised play. And onboard memory lets you take your keyboard on the road and have your settings available wherever you go.
- Armoury II: Armoury II is driver-based software that offers extensive controls and an intuitive UI so you can easily tune TUF Gaming K5 to play your way. Create profiles, customise colours and lighting effects, map keys, record macros and more. You can even track hardware stats during gameplay for entertaining data analysis.
Does lighting really have a benefit?
For the hardcore gamer, much time is spent gaming at night, which is when the LEDs can come in handy, albeit one colour would suffice.
For the casual gamer, it may not be worth the extra cost just to flick a few lights on once in a blue moon.
