I believe many digital bloggers and table-building enthusiasts took advantage of the shopping festival to update their desktops. I am no exception. I replaced the previous old keyboard. This time I chose the MIIIW Z680c mechanical keyboard. The specific model is called Z680c. After a simple experience, I will talk to you about the experience.
The packaging adopts a pure black style, with a rendering of the keyboard printed on the front and a light gray slanted shading contrasting it. The only flaw is that I was a bit flattened by the courier when I received it.
The back of the box lists the keyboard’s functional characteristics, technical parameters, manufacturer information, and serial number codes.
In addition to the keyboard, the package also comes with a replacement space bar keycap, key puller, Type C data cable, and user guide.
The design style of the MIIIW Z680c mechanical keyboard is mainly simple; the whole is mainly made of ABS and PC materials, with dark gray color, no extra decoration, just the default space bar keycap and the power switch in the upper right corner are matched with bright yellow As an embellishment, it makes the whole look more playful elements.
The keyboard uses a 68-key key layout as a whole, which is much smaller than the full keyboard size, and the narrow bezel design is even more refined. According to official data, the measurements are 316*118*38.7mm, and the weight is about 665 grams. It will not take up much space on the desktop. However, there is no numeric keypad area, which will be inconvenient for the accounting staff.
At the top of the keyboard, there is a bright-looking status bar. On the left side, there are indicator lights for corresponding functions, and on the far right is the physical power button.
The right side of the rear side is the wired/Bluetooth mode switch, the Windows/Mac OS mode switch, and the Type C interface. In addition, the logo of rice is marked on the side of the lower right corner of the keyboard, which is quite recognizable.
The height of the five rows of keycaps is not the same. The front and rear sides are slightly higher than the middle, forming a natural curve transition. This is also to consider the use of more in line with user habits.
The bottom of the keyboard is relatively flat, and the appearance is not bad. There are five raised rubber anti-skid feet near the edge, which can increase placement stability and prevent the bottom of the keyboard from contacting the desktop. There are two-stage support legs on the left and right sides of the rear, lifting the keyboard to different heights. A self-adhesive nameplate is affixed in the middle, and there are diagonal lines on both sides for embellishment.
This MIIIW Z680c mechanical keyboard supports two connection modes: wired and Bluetooth. In Bluetooth mode, it supports Bluetooth 3.0 and Bluetooth 5.0 protocols.
The advantages of multi-mode connection in actual use are still many. First, it can establish connections with multiple devices simultaneously to meet the needs of multi-device parties like me; second, different connection methods are suitable for different devices, such as desktop computers. Use wired connection, laptop or two-in-one tablet use Bluetooth connection.
The two factors that most affect the keyboard experience in daily life are the keycaps and the shaft body. This MIIIW Z680c uses ABS keycaps. The surface is supplemented with a subtle matte texture, which is warm and comfortable to the touch and has a certain anti-skid effect. It can be tapped quickly. The finger will not slide to the button next to it. Thanks to the advanced two-color injection molding process, the characters on the keycaps are also very clear and have good light transmittance.
This keyboard has three-axis bodies: red axis, green axis, and tea axis. I chose the most iconic green axis among mechanical keyboards. The green shaft feels hard and has a long keystroke, but it is very crisp. The tactile feedback is clear when it is struck, and it is accompanied by the feedback sound of the mechanical shaft. In the case of daily codewords, it is good to use the green axis, which can bring the same experience as the typewriter keyboard in the early years. However, the most obvious drawback of the green shaft is its sound, which is not suitable when multiple people work together. You can consider changing to a red shaft with a lower voice.
The choice of shaft body is more different from person to person. Everyone’s habits and usage scenarios are different. The best suggestion is to find the one that suits you best after trying various shaft bodies. The red, green, and tea shafts are the mainstream shafts in mechanical keyboards, which most users can accept.
The buttons with larger areas adopt the design of the satellite axis. There is an auxiliary axis on the left and right sides of the main shaft. It can avoid the tilt of the left and right sides of the key. When the key is triggered, the same feel can be obtained by applying force at any position, and the key can be Accurate triggered.
MIIIW Z680c mechanical keyboard supports a full-key non-impact design and is not restricted by the connection method, and all keys are pressed simultaneously without conflict. Corresponding to actual use, for example, it is very convenient to call shortcut functions through multiple key combinations in the software of the Abobe family. In addition, when playing games, you can also use key combinations to trigger custom macros and other settings.
This keyboard supports both Windows and Mac OS modes for multi-device parties and office workers. It can be easily switched through the toggle buttons on the back of the fuselage. The keyboard is also used for the two modes separately up the text mark. In addition, to facilitate quick access to some system functions in daily use, the keyboard’s F1-F12 keys have also added shortcut functions. By combining with the Fn key, these functions can be accessed with one key, covering backlight brightness and system Functions, multimedia control, etc.
The Type C cable provides power to the keyboard while transmitting signals in wired mode, so there is no need to worry about battery life. In Bluetooth mode, you need to rely on the built-in 1100mAh lithium battery of the keyboard, but due to the short experience time, it is impossible to know its battery life. The keyboard can be recharged through the Type C interface simultaneously, and the input power is 5V-1A.
This keyboard uses a white backlight, but the brightness is not very high, slightly illuminating the text on the keyboard; I think that the grasp is just right. The backlight supports 4-level brightness adjustment. There are a variety of common lighting effects, which can be adjusted through the Fn+direction key combination, which can meet the personalized needs of some daily use scenarios.
After a week or so of in-depth experience, the overall impression of this keyboard is still good. The simple appearance design is highly similar to my desktop style; the 68-key configuration is small and exquisite; it supports Bluetooth and wired dual-mode connection, and can be connected to up to four devices at the same time to meet the needs of multi-device parties; ABS keycaps are matched with two-color injection molding technology, which is tactile Warm and comfortable, clear characters, and good light transmittance; three mainstream shafts are provided, the green shaft feels crisp, and the feedback is clear; support full scenes and full keys without punching, industry office and game entertainment are also applicable; support Mac OS system compatibility, line keys Features such as separation also add a lot to the experience of this keyboard.
Conclusion of MIIIW Z680c
In short, MIIIW Z680c mechanical keyboard continues MIIIW’s consistent solid experience and cost-effectiveness, which is very suitable for users such as digital experts and office workers.
