XPG is the gaming division of ADATA, and has been manufacturing high performance computer peripherals for gamers and enthusiasts since 2010. XPG keeps close contact with the enthusiast market to determine their needs and develop the appropriate devices. Today, we are looking at their Infarex K20 mechanical gaming keyboard that is available for $44.99 shipped.
The XPG Infarex K20 is a mechanical keyboard, that uses Kailh Blue switches. If you are unfamiliar with mechanical keys, they are typically much more responsive than membrane keyboards, so they are geared towards gamers, or users that want a specific tactile response. While Cherry switches are considered the premium switches as they have been around longer, the Kailh switches are considered to be equivalent, with positive and negatives on both sides. The Kailh Blue switch provides both a tactile and a clicky response when pressed.
The Kailh Blue switches have a 50 Million key press lifespan each, which will be virtually impossible for somebody to hit; they’re designed to last a lifetime. The XPG Infarex K20 is is backed by a one year warranty.
