Durgod is a brand the majority of our readers may not be familiar with, and those who are would typically be of one of two sets of people, if not both. The first would be our Asian readers, especially those from China, to whom Durgod markets their products as proudly Made in China as part of Zhuhai Hoksi Technolog Co., Ltd. in an attempt to improve the reputation of products manufactured in China on average. The second would be mechanical keyboard enthusiasts on forums and other online communities to whom the brand has represented good build quality, rarely seen switch options, and good value for money. We first met Durgod at Computex 2018, but it did take nearly two years to get the brand reviewed here. Better late than never, however, and thanks again to the company for sending review samples to TechPowerUp!
This review was made especially possible through one of their retailers who might as well be a distributor to the west, HK-Gaming. This outlet in particular is responsible for stocking units on Amazon worldwide, among others, which is how I had no problems getting a sample of this keyboard and why the previous Durgod keyboard reviewed bore the name Durgod x HK Venus. The Taurus is a different series entirely, and we have here the Taurus K320, which is an 87-key tenkeyless (TKL) form factor keyboard as opposed to the Taurus K310, which is a full-size keyboard. As with the Venus, the Taurus 320 is available with different switches, but different is also the option of different types of backlighting and color options for the case and keycaps. We will talk about all of this and more, but begin with a look at the specifications below.
