iQunix A80 Explorer Wireless Mechanical Keyboard Review

iQunix A80 Explorer Overview

The first thing that is going to catch your attention about the A80 Explorer is its colorway. The very unique slate blue with yellow and white accents looks absolutely amazing. It just goes so well together and the nice thing about the colorway is that it is not just the keycaps, it is built into the chassis as well. Let’s talk about that 80% size, basically this is 10% smaller than most 87-key boards. I would say it is a more crunched together version of a tenkeyless (TKL) keyboard. So your arrow keys and the keys that would typically be above them are just moved over into the main area of the keyboard. With this you have a footprint that is slightly larger than a 60% keyboard, which people with limited desk space will definitely appreciate. For those wondering the official dimensions of the keyboard are 321 x 159 x 52 mm.

The interesting thing about this keyboard is how the top function row is positioned. These keys are elevated and angled towards you, iQunix calls this a terraced structure design. It definitely is different, there is also an indication light between the ESC key and the start of the function row.

iQunix is making use of PBT keycaps, which is a must if you want anyone to take your keyboard seriously these days. The keycaps do not have see-through legends, so if you plan on getting the RGB version of the keyboard the lighting is not going to be the best.

Under the keycaps are our switches, which in our version are Cherry MX Blue mechanic key switches. iQunix is offering this keyboard with both Cherry MX (Brown, Red, Blue, Pink, Silver) and Gateron (Brown, Red, Blue) switches. The really cool thing about this keyboard is that the switches themselves are hot-swappable. So if you are just getting into mechanical keyboards and down the line you want to try out some different switches you can easily add them to this keyboard. As I mentioned earlier the keyboard comes with the switch puller.

Looking at the keyboard from the side we can see that it already sits at an angle and how interesting the terraced structure design really is. For those who are looking for more of a typing angle the pop-out feet on the bottom of the keyboard add two more angles of adjustment.

Looking at the rear edge of the keyboard the USB-C connection is on the far left.

Flipping the keyboard over there are four small rubber feet, the pop-out feet that we mentioned and a small switch to change from wired mode to wireless mode.
