Mechanical keyboards are now very common. In addition to the large manufacturers such as
Corsair, Razer, Logitech, etc. There are also many smaller manufacturers, some of which offer somewhat exotic models.
These more exotic manufacturers also include AKKO, which try to score primarily with exotic key caps designs, their own buttons and otherwise a minimalist design.
With the AKKO 3084 B Plus, this offers a super interesting mechanical radio keyboard for just € 80. Of course, despite the wireless design, this has RGB lighting.
AKKO also uses its own Akko CS Jelly Pink Switches. So not a cherry or another large manufacturer, but something of its own. This alone lifts the keyboard very much from the crowd!
But how good are the buttons? How good is the case? We find this out in the test!
Test: Akko 3084 B Plus
The AKKO 3084 B Plus is a rather minimalist keyboard. This relies on a very narrow frame and dispenses with all addition or media keys away from the standard buttons.
The Akko 3084 B Plus also does not use a number pad. We have a so -called TKL keyboard here.
I am very impressed with the basic processing quality! The keyboard is made of plastic on the outside, but it is noticeable that we have a thick metal plate inside. So the keyboard is extremely torsion -proof and not exactly light.
On the ergonomics we have two normal feet that we can fold up. These look robust, but are nothing special in themselves.
Since we have a wireless keyboard here, it naturally also needs a battery. This offers 3000mAh and is loaded via a USB C port on the back.
Akko CS Jelly Pink Switche
You can get the Akko 3084 B Plus with the AKKO CS Jelly Pink or the Akko CS Jelly Purple.
Akko CS Jelly Pink Switch
Actualation Force: 45GF ± 5GF
Total Travel: 4.0 ± 0.3mm
Pre-Travel: 1.9 ± 0.3mm
The Akko CS Jelly Pink roughly corresponds to the Cherry MX Reds. Here, too, linear buttons will have no audible or tangible click.
Excellent feeling of rating!
I'm now saying something surprising here, I like the Akko CS Jelly Pink better than Cherry MX Reds and all other mechanical buttons that I have had in a keyboard so far.
Basically, the buttons are of course similar. The CS Jelly Pink offer a completely linear pressure point. The buttons feel completely the same from the beginning of the pressing to the stop.
The CS Jelly Pink are wonderfully soft and supple. It almost feels like the buttons are “oiled”. The Akko are noticeably softer and smoother than the Cherry button, which is impressive.
In addition, there is an extremely firm and rich stop. To get this feeling, AKKO has integrated a silicone pad in the base, which massively increases the mass of the keyboard.
As a result, the keyboard sounds richer and deeper. This does not have this high “pling” on the keyboard stop.
As you can see, I am really enthusiastic about the sense of the type of Akko 3084 B Plus! This keyboard has the best sense of ratance I have ever experienced with a mechanical keyboard!
However, not everything is perfect either. On the one hand we have the Qwerty layout. According to the AKKO, QWERTZ key caps will soon be available, but this is not yet the case.
I also needed some getting used to on the Akko 3084 B Plus. I can't tell you why, but somehow the distances of the keys were unusual for me or something else messed up my finger.
However, typing after about 20 minutes, I have reached a writing speed that I have never known from myself! World class!
At first glance it is
Akko 3084 B PlusJust another mechanical keyboard. However, I was extremely surprised by this!
I say it very clearly, the feeling of tips here is a good deal better than with Corsair's mechanical keyboards, which I am otherwise used to!
I have never had a mechanical keyboard on which I could type as quickly as on this and also had as much joy!
I am enthusiastic about the Akko 3084 B Plus! I cannot tell you whether this is due to the Akko CS Jelly Pink buttons, the silicone -filled base or the simply good construction. However, the result is great!
The choice of wired connection, Bluetooth or the enclosed USB receiver is also great.
The only thing that speaks against the Akko is the keynight layout. Currently, this is only available with Qwerty Layout. German key caps should follow! In addition, the AKKO 3084 B Plus naturally uses standard key caps. Maybe I'll just steal this from a different keyboard.
Anyway, I'm really thrilled by the Akko 3084 B Plus! At first glance, this may look quite classic, but the feeling of tips is second to none!
