Introduction

Hexgears Logo

It has been a while since we first took a look at the Hexgears brand with the Impulse, and things have been busy for yours truly to where we only now get to take a look at what the US/China brand has been up to. Hexgears is an enthusiast-driven keyboard brand that works closely with Kailh and Input Club to bring out premium offerings with customization and open-source firmware in mind. Soon after the Impulse was released, the brand put out a twin series aptly named Gemini Dawn and Dusk, with the Dawn in white and the Dusk in black. Thanks again to Hexgears for sending TechPowerUp a review sample!


Color aside, the Gemini keyboard twins are otherwise identical, so this review can also be taken for the Gemini Dawn. Seen above is the Gemini Dusk in black, and this is a TKL (tenkeyless) form factor keyboard in the US ANSI layout. At first glance, we also notice what appears to be per-key RGB lighting, but not much else. This is one of the best examples of not judging a book by its cover, or a review sample by the title image. Grab a drink, relax, and enjoy the ride as we cover the Hexgears Gemini Dusk over seven pages in this review that begins with a look at the specifications in the table below.
