Introduction


QPAD earned their reputation by producing the first ever gaming grade hybrid mats several years ago. Today the company sells a large variety of PC gaming peripherals including: mice, mouse mats, headsets, and keyboards.

The keyboard we will be taking a look at today is their newest high-end offering. The keyboard features Cherry MX Red key mechanisms and red backlighting. Like its predecessor, the MK-80, the MK-85 sports a two port USB hub, audio pass-through and an impressive build quality. Retained from the MK-80 is the soft-feel finish on key-tops and the elevation system that allows for two levels of inclination.

The MK-85 is available with all the current Cherry MX keys directly from QPAD. The price is fixed at a staggering €149.90 which makes it one of the most expensive keyboards we have ever tested.
