Velocifiretech, or simply Velocifire henceforth in this review, is a relatively unknown company based out of China looking to make its presence in the global keyboard market in 2019. They set about by establishing a retail channel with global e-tailers, including Amazon.com, and have been contacting the press media to get the word out on their brand. If you have been following my keyboard reviews, you know I like to take a look at as many different brands as I can, so I was curious when they got in touch with me. They proposed I take a look at a MacOS-centric keyboard first, which was quickly shot down. Their next recommendation seemed to be a good idea, however, with wireless mechanical keyboards getting into the budget-friendly range lately. So here we are then, and thanks again to Velocifire for sending a review sample to TechPowerUp.
At first glance, there is not much to see here, and perhaps that is a good thing given what we do see is a formula that works. Indeed, a two-piece plastic case for a TKL keyboard with the logo displayed above the arrow key cluster (or is it? More on this later on) reminds me of the Cooler Master Rapidfire TKL keyboard in many ways, down to the indicator LEDs and general case design. The TKL form factor enables most of the functionality of a full-size keyboard while still retaining some space efficiency for when you want to have the mouse closer for ergonomic reasons. The Velocifire TKL02WS is, as the name suggests, a wireless keyboard based off their older TKL02 wired mechanical keyboard. We will go over the product in more detail, beginning with the specs below.
