Mechanical keyboards are trendy. More and more people, above all game-enthusiastic people, are reaching for them and driving various manufacturers to refine their products further. Lioncast is also working on producing ever better mechanical keyboards. So it’s not surprising that the popular LK300 keyboard has been relaunched in a slightly revised Pro version.
Fundamental differences between the standard and Pro models exist only with regard to the keys used. However, since these represent the core of a keyboard, these changes alone can achieve significant improvements.
For us, the revision of the Lioncast model is always reason enough for a detailed test. The results of the inspection of the LK300 Pro can be found below.
Design and Workmanship: High-Quality
In terms of design, the LK300 Pro is a largely ordinary gaming keyboard. She wants to convince with freestanding keys, RGB lighting and a rather average appearance. Lioncast largely dispenses with extravagant design elements and instead creates a keyboard that is restrained in a positive sense. This circumstance leads, however, to the fact that otherwise little can be said about the design.
The workmanship, however, is flawless. The manufacturer relies exclusively on high-quality materials for the tested input device. The keyboard has an aluminium base plate on which the individual keys can be found. The back of the keyboard is made of plastic, which doesn’t bother you. Many manufacturers save here. In addition, Lioncast uses a removable wrist-rest, which also has a high-quality finish. What we particularly like about this one is that it is held magnetically.
The fact that the keyboard doesn’t seem exceptionally large either in width or in length, despite numerous special keys, is astonishing. This is achieved by the fact that Lioncast does not mechanically attach these special and media keys.
Overall, both the design and workmanship of the LK300 Pro are convincing. There are no points of criticism in this respect.
