X1 RGB Continued
We also wanted to show off the multimedia keys. In the top right comer, by the lock indicator LEDs, we find the scroll wheel for volume and a mute button to the right of it. The bottom row delivers stop, back track, play and pause, and forward track functions.
With the larger of the two options of feet extended, we can see the angle of attack has increased, and with the wrist rest attached, the X1 RGB is ready for hours of ergonomic usage. The frame is the same as what was seen on the other end, just textured plastic with a gentle curve at the front edge.
The USB cable is centered in the back edge of the keyboard, and just to the left of it are the pass-through ports. There is the USB 2.0 port for anything other than fast charging a device, and next to it is the stereo audio and voice pass-through port for closer headset connectivity.
As the USB cable leaves the keyboard, it is thick, the entire thing is covered in braided cloth, and is bound with a Velcro strap. The wires pass through a Ferrite choke before being broken up within the chunky cover. It is then which all three lines go their separate ways, and all three terminate with connections which are lightly gold plated.
The bottom of the keyboard is flat, it uses five rubber pads to secure it on the desk, and has flip out feet at the back. At the front there are two notches, and these are where the tabs on the wrist rest magnetically attach to the keyboard.
What we do not typically see is a keyboard with optional height adjustments. You can use the shorter feet, which have rubber on the ends. If that isn't enough of an angle, flip out the longer set, which is also rubber coated, so that grip on the desk is never an issue.
