Sentey Crimson Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

Final Thoughts


Let's be very blunt for a second to add a bit of perspective. We have seen quite a few mechanical keyboards that demand what Sentey is asking for their Crimson Pro, but not once, in any of those samples, have we received the experience and offerings that Sentey was more than happy to deliver to us.


Think about it for a second: most keyboards don't even come with a key puller, let alone come with extra key caps, a poster, a door tag, and best yet, a somewhat rigid carrying case to lug this keyboard around with you to game somewhere other than your house. Even here things are easy; since the keyboard offers onboard memory, those fifty Macros you spent all that time programming, yeah those come with you too.


We found our time using the Crimson Pro to be very pleasant. Keyboards don't usually last too long around here due to the fact that we still have our preferred green switch based keyboard, but there is something nice about the linear feel and reduced noise that the Cherry MX black switches offer. We also like that the keys are easy to read in the daytime without the LEDs on, and at night, with red as the choice of LEDs, it doesn't dance in your peripherals like blue LEDs have the tendency to do. After quite a few long reviews, and some game time under our belt, we struggle to come up with anything as a negative to address with the Crimson Pro.


Not only does Sentey live up to our expectations, they show what sort of value can be had at near $150. As we've already addressed, most of the time all you get is the keyboard in a fancy box at this pricing, but here you get everything you could ever think to want or need to go along with a very well equipped product at its base. Also unlike many other submissions, once the software is programmed to your likings, all of the functionality can be had with the press of a key or two, without needing to go back to the software at all.


From every angle we look at or try to attack the Crimson Pro from, it just stands there and takes it smiling, because it knows you are going to be hard pressed to find a better Cherry MX black switch based gaming keyboard on the market.
