1stPlayer Bullet Hunter MK6 Gaming Keyboard Review

PUBG & DOOM

 

With any games, not just FPS titles, the Bullet Hunter MK6 is up for the task at hand. With a trio of profiles, you can easily adjust the keyboard to your most played games, and everything is stored on the keyboard. In all of the software testing and programming we did, not once did it ask to save anything on the system drive. Macros came in handy with a few titles, while the feel and functionality on a basic level are all we expected from it.

 

Some may not appreciate the clicks of the Outemu blue switches, but anyone who knows our reviews knows we appreciate switches which are tougher to actuate, especially for gaming, where your hands rest on the board constantly. Lighting can also play into gaming, as you can set it up by profile, which means one could quickly look at the keyboard and know if the correct profile is being used.

 

The only issue is that to swap profiles you need to open the software as none of the dual functions are set up for this task. Bluntly put, it is a keyboard, and it works well for games, but at the same time, we would have changed a couple of things to make life with this product a bit smoother.

 

 

Windows and Productivity

 

Having chatted in IMs as well as writing up a few reviews with the Bullet Hunter MK6, we can say that we experienced nothing out of the ordinary. The anti-ghosting works, it has NKRO support, and while we cannot confirm its polling rate, we never found a time where a keypress was being missed. Aside from using the volume scroll wheel when gaming, it wasn't until we dove into our music collection while writing that we found the multimedia keys well placed and functional.

 

 

Backlit with white LEDs make them easy to spot, and we also found out that the first button under the scroll wheel is to lock it from adjusting the volume. While we see no point in the doubling of the multimedia keys, we can appreciate the shortcuts for the calculator, browser, email handler, and media player. As far as speed is concerned, we kept with our typical WPM, but there is enough difference between Cherry MX and Outemu blue switches that there was an adjustment period to contend with. Otherwise, to write on day to day or to use for whatever you feel necessary, the Bullet Hunter MK6 can get the job done.
