Normally, when you buy a mechanical gaming keyboard, you are bound to any key switch you have chosen, whether it is a strong switch and with a click that is soft and quiet (or somewhere in between). The EVGA Z15 RGB gaming keyboard is different from most. Includes hot-swappable key switches in case you want to change things at some point without buying any full platform. At this point you also have a deep discount.
At Newegg, you can grab the Z15 RGB for $ 59.99 after applying the coupon code 6ACSFLS75 in the box. It is priced at $ 129.99, so you save $ 70 off the regular price of the keyboard. As for street prices, Amazon had marked it up to $ 64.99 a couple of times in the past, but its average selling price exceeds $ 100, according to tracking data from CamelCamelCamel. It is currently on sale for $ 93.95.

Outside the door, you can choose between Kailh Speed Bronze or Kailh Speed Silver switches. What is the difference? Bronze switches are touch and click for a stronger writing experience (in my alley), while silver switches are linear and smooth for a quieter writing experience without a touch pump, if this is your preference.
Beyond switch selection, EVGA promotes a report rate of 4,000 Hz versus 1,000 Hz, as found in the vast majority of gaming / performance keyboards. This translates into a response time of 0.25 ms, less than 1 ms. We haven't tested this keyboard, so we can't tell if a hyper-fast reporting rate really makes a significant difference, but in theory it lends itself to faster input.
You’ll also get a set of dedicated multimedia keys on this keyboard, including a volume scroll wheel and customizable RGB key lighting to complete the set of notable features.
