IOGEAR Unveils $49 HVER STEALTH Premium RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

IOGEAR, today announced the addition of the HVER STEALTH premium mechanical gaming keyboard to its Kaliber Gaming line of gaming and eSports products. Available immediately for $49.99, this streamlined mechanical keyboard boasts a variety of must-have gaming features, premium build quality and extreme durability. "Our HVER keyboards are known for their edgy appearance, premium build quality, solid feature set and affordable price points. While the HVER keyboards have done well historically, many of our customers, streamers and influencers have provided similar feedback, saying that the keyboard performs great but looks too aggressive. So, we reassessed and created a keyboard that combines what people loved about previous HVER models with the physical qualities they liked about other high-end gaming keyboards," said Derek Hamilton, product manager at IOGEAR.

The HVER STEALTH features a standard 110-key layout but elevates the experience by hovering the keys above the keyboard's subtle but stylish brushed aluminium face plate. This provides a comfortable typing experience for everyday use, while also providing very crisp, direct switch actuations for gameplay. The textured double-injected keycaps are easy to read and provide a durable non-slip surface that will endure hundreds of hours of gameplay without wearing off. Under those keycaps, customers will find high-quality brown, boxed-style mechanical switches that deliver a subtle tactile click upon actuation and the perfect amount of noise for mixed use. Keeping things stable is a weighted base and rubber feet that ensure the keyboard won't slip out of position, even in the most rigorous gaming sessions.

  • Edge-lit illumination with programmable per-key RGB lighting

The HVER STEALTH looks like a pretty decent value at $50. Similar to the Red Dragon Mechanical keyboards(k580, k582, k556). The KORONA KORE II on the other hand is so cheap they couldn't even find a keyboard with a centered ENTER legend to shoot for the promo.

Would be interested in seeing a side-by-side comparison of HVER STEALTH and RedDragon K556. I want to say I paid $45 for my K556 and other than the scroll wheel in the upper-right they look *almost* identical. One other difference is the ReDragon models are per-key RGB and not "zones".

Rip Van Winkie here is right, features all sound ok but how generic can you get for such a low price?

does not look worth it or premium at all

Kinda nice that there are cheaper options for mechanical keyboards for those who are in a budget. It's always interesting to know what those cheaper switches are like.

Though personally I like TKL/60% more than a full keyboard.
