Nanoxia Ncore Retro Aluminum Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
The left edge of the Ncore Retro Aluminum is made of a strip of aluminum, which has been anodized black, it is textured in appearance, and has the top edge machined to expose a natural aluminum angled top edge. We can also see the default angle of attack is better than most, and that all of the switches and LEDs are exposed.
A view of these 74 keys shows many things. We see multimedia support across the top, the LED modes on the numbers, and a Windows lock at the bottom left. We can also see much of the textured, black, aluminum top panel, and of course, we see many round keys with chrome rings around them.
The F1 key is set up for "This PC, " and F2 brings up Cortana or the search menu. F3 will bring up the calculator, and F4 opens Windows Media Player. We can also see that the numbers have codes on the keys, denoting which game or game style they work with. COD for the obvious Call of Duty, RTS for Real Time Strategy games, and LOL A for the first of two League of Legends LED presets.
Continuing with the multimedia keys, we now see the F5 is set to bring up the previous track, and F6 will take you to the next track. F7 is the play/pause button, and F8 is used to stop what is playing. The LED modes continue down the line, and we even see that the nine key is where you can set one of two manually set modes.
The last of the multimedia functionality is found on three more of the F-keys. F9 is used to mute sound, F10 lowers the sound, and F11 raises it.
The 30 keys on the right side of the Ncore Retro Aluminum is all that we expect to see and use an easy to read font. The print screen button is how you change rollover modes, and we also see that the number pad can be utilized by left-hand gamers for directional arrows.
