Not only have that, at just RM59, user will get 3 LED Backlight (red, blue and purple) with 4 stages of LED brightness control to suit user’s taste.

Conclusion

AVF Gaming Freak II AKB-GK1 Gaming Keyboard review has come to an end. The cable is fully sleeved with nylon braided which makes it somewhat premium looking. We are really satisfied with this model as the price tag of RM59 is really cheap and affordable for every entry gamer that look for affordable keyboard with lot of attractive features such as waterproof and 3 led colour with 4 brightness control! We even did submerge the keyboard into a 15m of dive underwater for photoshoot session and the keyboard emerges still working fine! But we believe that’s just luck XD.

For the user experience, we satisfied with the feeling of the keyboard even after a long usage as it soft enough to press and detect the input. The key is really silent as its barely to hear any sound produce from it. Kudos to AVF Malaysia to make such great product at an affordable price!

Finally, thanks to AVF Malaysia for giving us an opportunity to make a review on this AVF AKB – GK1 Gaming Freak II Keyboard.

I bought this keyboard from Tesco and it only cost RM49 lel. What I like the keyboard is the LED feature and premium look. As for cons, I feel the key is a bit small compared to my other keyboard especially the Enter button. Maybe I just have to get used to it. Other than that I am satisfied with it given the price that is pretty cheap. thumbup.gif

Hi, Actually the mouse is indeed 3 month of warranty, your shop location should cover fully 3 month warranty instead of 1 week
Anyway if there's any problem you can RMA through me too smile.gif
It would be faster as i pass direct to AVF HQ
