A Closer Look
Fresh out of the box the K60 looks very similar to your standard office keyboard. That’s where the similarities end. The entire unit is cased in THINK brush aluminum and has a really solid feel to it.
If you pulled a “Wanted” keyboard scene with this keyboard I’m pretty sure you’d be brought up on Homicide charges.
The feel of this keyboard is like non I’ve ever experienced before. The space bar has a slight texture to match the aluminum volume roller on the top right. The multimedia keys are conveniently placed so they don’t interfere with any gaming action. And the keyboard features “laser etched” lettering to make the keys feel smooth as ever.
The K60 also features an additional USB 2.0 port on the back. This can be used for a range of things like thumb drives to USB mic’s. I mainly used it for the mouse I was using so I didn’t have another cord running down the back of my desk.
The cable that connects the keyboard to the computer is of the nicest quality I’ve ever seen on a USB cable. The cable is a very thick and braded. If you were under your desk trying to figure out what cable is your keyboard cable you’d have no trouble picking this one out of the bunch. There are 2 USB connectors, one for the powering of the remote USB port on the back of the keyboard and the other for the keyboard itself.
Included with the keyboard is a hybrid wrist rest that attaches to the bottom left side of the keyboard and an “extra-key-storage case”. The primary roll of this attachment is to position your left hand in the perfect place to use the WASD and 1-6 keys to their fullest. The top of the wrist rest is textured nicely and matches the build quality of everything else associated with the board.
