Not completely set on one mechanical switch type? Epic Gear has announced its 'DEFIANT' modular mechanical keyboard, allowing users to chop and change different switch types on-the-fly. Coined by this peripheral company as 'EG MMS' technology aka Modular-matrix Structure mechanical Switches, it's something we haven't really seen before.

 

 

Paired with the optional extra EG MMS switch accessory, you can expect a 24-pack of keys within that are available in Epic Gear's own Grey, Orange or Purple key types. Back to the keyboard itself, the DEFIANT offers LED backlighting and programmable per-key lighting, a 1000Hz adjustable polling rate, anti-ghosting, fully programmable keys, a dedicated GUI software with four profiles, braided cables and more.

 

Weighing in at a hefty 2.4lb (1100g), this product comes packed with a 2-year manufacturer warranty, it's designed in Taiwan and TweakTown currently has one on the way to review. Want to know more? Keep checking back for our full comprehensive review on this promising new model.
