QPAD®|MK-85

Pro Gaming Backlit Mechanical Keyboard

Unlike your average keyboard, that functions through rubber domes, forcing you to press each key all the way down in order for the stroke to register, the MK-85 feature true mechanical switches with unmatched accuracy and feel. No more pressing with full-force in order to activate the keys.The QPAD keyboard will respond to your every stroke in an instant.

Other boards normally have a short life span and wear out quickly, resulting in unresponsiveness, delays and a dull, clunky feel to the keys. The key switches on MK-85 are built to last 50 million strokes, and the QPAD mechanical key technology provides distinct feedback and puts you in absolute control. The travel distance of the keys is set to 4mm with an actuation point at 2mm.

For gamers, it’s all about the feel and functionallity and that is where the QPAD MK-85 truly shines. With a full size keyboard layout in 3 sections, gaming profiles, macro recording, mechanical key switches, media keys and full N-Key roll over via USB, it’s the perfect gaming keyboard. Nuff said...

Arguably the best gaming keyboard ever made. Our top-of-the-line gaming keyboard sports the following key-features:

• Full N-Key roll over via USB
• Cherry MX Red mechanical switch technology

• Ultra-durable, programmable keys, designed to last 50 million strokes
• Individual LED back light on every key for enhanced visuals
• Gold plated USB connectors
• Media keys for volume control, play, pause and skip tracks
• USB Hub with two high speed USB 2.0 ports

GAMERSEDGE Top 10 Keyboard list JUNE 2012

The Q pad MK-85.  If anyone doubted how good a mechanical keyboard could be, this will set them straight.  With Cherry MX Red switches, media keys, USB 2.0 2 port hub, audio jacks, adjustable individually backlit keys and optional WASD orange keys, the MK-85 ticks all the boxes.  With some keyboards we have looked at, the WASD keys have had there own lighting, the MK-85 goes further, by giving a key puller and 4 orange replacement keys, there will be no doubt where the keys are.  The individual back lights come in handy here as the light comes through even on the orange key.  While many will argue that MX Black switches are the best, the weight of the switch can reduce performance.  With lightweight Red switches, the MK-85 delivers both smooth gaming performance without compromising game preference.  The lack of macro keys is something Qpad have remedied via the use of software.  By using different profiles, all the keys on the keyboard can be set to do anything, macros, windows commands and much more.  The small wrist rest adds to the mix giving a nice typing experience.  Overall, after you are done gaming, you want a keyboard that is good to type on, the blue switches offer the best typing experience for most people, which is why, combined with all the other features, such as PS2 and NKRO, makes this our number 1 keyboard.  Priced at around £120, it is one of the more expensive keyboards on the market, but it is feature packed to deliver as much as possible without compromise.  Our number 1 keyboard pick

“This is a high quality keyboard with nifty macro-functions. The red switches are brilliant
when it comes to gaming” -

"Det nya flaggskeppet MK-85 Pro tar det goda från föregångaren och gör det ännu bättre. Tangentbordet har hög kvalitetskänsla, finurliga makrofunktioner och praktiska snabbanslutningar. Bakgrundsbelysning är precis som tidigare väldigt funktionell och de röda brytarna är briljanta när det kommer till spel."

Score: Outstanding award

"If you’re in the market for a new keyboard, I’d highly recommend giving this Qpad board a look as it’d make a great addition to a gamer’s arsenal. Just expect to have to dig a little deeper in your pocket to afford it as the price tag makes this one a bit nich"

Die Qpad MK-85 ist eine TOP-Spieletastatur. Die hochwertigen und enorm präzisen MX-Red-Schalter, die gute Beleuchtung, passende Features für Zocker (Makros, Anti-Ghosting, Full N-Key-Rollover über USB, etc.) sowie ein USB-HUB und der Headset-Anschluss können Zocker überzeugen.

Qpad lanserar återigen ett tangentbord med krut i. Man levererar prestanda och funktioner som är väldigt bra och i många fall ett krav från oss som spelar mycket. Man levererar det i en snygg och clean design som också håller hög kvalitet. Det är också väldigt bra att man nu som köpare kan välja om man vill ha röda eller blåa switchar.

VORTEZ

The MK-80 was a great looking keyboard of that there can be no doubts. The luxurious feel of the keyboard surround and backlit key set put most other keyboards in the shade (literally). However, there were two issues which prevented MK-80 from being our top mechanical keyboard - no macro functionality and the use of Cherry MX Blue keys. Guess what QPAD have gone and done? The MK-85 now has macro capability and has the much better (for gaming at least) Cherry MX red switches. With this in mind I'm going to be true to my word and put the MK-85 in number one spot in the hotly contested mechanical gaming keyboard market. It is a deserved winner of not only our esteemed Platinum award but also gets the rarely given Elite award simply for being the very best there is to offer in this segment, regardless of its high asking price. If the girl from the L’Oreal advert was worth it, then the QPAD MK-85 most certainly is.

Ironhammers

When you mix these keys with the ridculously solid build quality of the MK-85, its rubber finish that just makes you want to touch it all the time, and the wonderfully comfortable wrist rest, you end up with a keyboard of the very finest quality. As with most good mechanical keyboards on the market, you’re paying a premium to get that extra quality, but in the case of the MK-85, it’s most certaily a case of ‘you get what you pay for’.

Score:4.5/5

Techpower Up

The QPAD MK-85 has all the right features, and you get to choose what key switches goes in it. The only possible reason not to like it is its quite extreme price of €149.90. This is €30 more than the now elderly MK-80 keyboard which has exactly the same features as the MK-85 just without drivers and a few other minor things. The build quality and finish of the product is still top-notch as you would expect from a company like QPAD, however, even that is still not enough to justify the price. It is good to see a mechanical keyboard that includes some of the everyday convenience features available on pretty much any business keyboard, the inclusion of both USB ports and audio pass-through is definitely a nice touch. With QPAD you get the choice of key mechanism, which is nice. Finally someone is building keyboards that people want instead of just pushing one type of key mechanisms. People have varying needs and preferences when it comes to key mechanisms and it is great to see a product catering to all people who are serious about typing, gaming or both. Personally I prefer the Cherry MX Brown keys, but each his own.

QPAD's build quality and design is definitely at the top of the pack. The MK-85 keyboard succeeds in incorporating a lot of nice to have features and has a good driver suite to boot. Whether the keyboard is worth the asking price depends somewhat on whether you have use for the added features and want a keyboard that has soft-touch finish.

Fragbite

Mycket pengar, men det är tre hundra kronor billigare än konkurrenterna i den högsta klassen. Så med andra ord är MK-85 ett mycket bra tangentbord, men de flesta klarar sig säkert utmärkt med prisklassen under.

Kvalitet kostar, och MK-85 går loss på cirka 1 400 kronor. Är det värt det för slösurfaren eller en genomsnittlig användare på jobbet? Troligen inte. Men för dig som lägger 20 000 kronor på en maxad speldator eller arbetar hela dagarna med att knattra text kan det vara en klok investering.

The Last Resort Esports

After some serious testing and in depth reading the MK-85 is an outstanding keyboard. Qpad compacted so many features conveniently whilst keeping high manufacturing standards and functionality. The keyboard performed fantastically throughout all tests and even had a few surprises hidden within. The drivers performed flawlessly and the NKRO technology was very impressive. This is no ordinary keyboard and comes highly recommended from TLR. This reviewer will definitely be on the lookout for future releases of QPAD keyboards. The only direction for this to go is onwards and upwards and with the mastering of USB functionality the sky’s the limit. With all products there are some functionality issues which however simple can still affect the reviewing score. So after everything taken into consideration the QPAD MK-85 gains a 9/10 this is a well deserved score and the future of mechanical keyboards looks very promising!

Score: Gold Award 9/10

This keyboard is hands down worth every penny, even at a higher price tag than most it has greater build quality and features than most competitors in the market. The downside to being such a high quality and feature-full is the higher price point, you need to make sure you are serious when spending this kind of money.
