In this video, I unbox and review the Redragon Kumara K552-N (non-backlit) mechanical keyboard. It features plate-mounted blue switches for a tactile and clicky typing experience. Coming in at under $30 on Amazon, it's quite a bargain for what you get. You might want to replace the key caps with some higher quality ones though.

[Update: Cobo has since made an announcement: https://twitter.com/CoboVault/status/1063995366335336449] After initially receiving a bricked review unit from Cobo, they recently sent me out a second device to review.

Although I was excited at the build quality during my unboxing video, I can simply not recommend the Cobo Vault at this time due to this issue... hopefully they'll ...
