One of the most sturdy & effective budget Gaming Mechanical keyboard.

4.0/5.0 stars.. Why not 5?
Well despite the positives on this product which I'll be talking about below the keyboard lacks custom led light modes like light waves, ripples, gaming mode and lighting trails like most other RGB keyboards these days. If Zebronics can add that this will become perfect. (Note Zebronics Max Plus has the effects but I don't prefer the number pad on gaming keyboards).
Lighting effects is just a gimmick so lets get to what the product actually offers..
Design and Built :-
Having used alot of gaming & mechanical keyboards I was happily surprised to see a nice metalic finish to this product and the superb built quality. This keyboard is not like the other light weight plastic stuff at the similar price. If you need a keyboard that would last you for years I can positively recommend this to you. (Stating this after owning this keyboard for two years now). The number pad missing is like a holy gift giving me so much space on my desk or in gaming cafes where the space is tight. One of tge things I adore on the keyboard is the rubber feet quality. The keyboard just get stuck to you desk and does not move making it sooo sturdy.
Tactile feedback & Sound:-
At the prices the quality of the keys and the switch is actually phenomenal. It is a blue switch however feels slightly more firm making it precise for gaming. Coming back home from work after working on a sad membrane keyboard and laying hands on my Zebronics Max is a feeling of happiness i cant put into words. Get a mechanical keyboard and you'll understand. As for the sound it is loud like a typical mechanical keyboard and is very soothing to the ears if you're into those nerdy things :P
I am a avid gamer who goes to alot of cyber Cafes for tournaments. The strong alumni design makes this keyboard highly durable to wear and tear of travel.
Gaming & Performance:-
I have always noticed that a mechanical keyboard consistently improves my gaming performance over an ordinary one. My movement is precise, my character crouches when i hit control without fail :P and just the feedback every key press gives you just makes you more involved in the game with effortless keystrokes. Typing on this keyboard is not the best when compared to the other mechanicals due to the slight firmness of the keys but then again this is a keyboard concentrating on gaming. Go for the Zebronics Max Plus if you type more than you game.
Yes you can disable the lights, increase and decrease brightness, lights have one effect called breathing apart from always on & the windows key can be disabled to avoid accidentally presses.
If you're a gamer who wants a good mechanical keyboard to last him years and don't care about fancy extra led effects, look no further the Zebronics max is love. You will enjoy the built quality, the rubber feet keep it glued to your desk, the firm tactile keys keep your fingers in paradise & all these features over all ensure alot of confidence in your gaming be it csgo, dota, pubg, Fortnite or Fifa.
DO NOT THROW THE PLASTIC CASE IT CAME IN AS IT IS A BRILLIANT DUST COVER.
