Verdict:

The Redragon K557 mechanical keyboard deserves my praise, actually im using this keyboard as I write this short review. For around 50$ you can get a good mechanical keyboard with the ability to customize each key that is best for gaming. You can even switch the backlight off for each key you don't need all by using the Redragon keyboard software that you can install using the included disc or by downloading it on the Redragon official website. The keyboard is quite loud and it may annoy someone if you are in a office setting. But for me they are perfect and I love how each key make noise whenever I type makes me feel good and It kinda boost my productivity by just typing on this keyboard. Plus it has additional 8 Outemu switches that you can try and each has different feedback and tactility, and if you ever broke a switch you can use the included switches as a replacement. Overall I would definitely recommend this keyboard if you are looking for a budget friendly but full functional mechanical keyboard that you will surely love.
