Here we go – a red glowing beast of a keyboard for an affordable price? Can it get better? We’re not exactly sure, and it will be up to you to decide after you’re done with reading. Redragon K552 KUMARA is a mechanical keyboard designed for multiple uses, carefully thought out and planned. First of all, you can’t help but notice the beautiful colors under the keys. That’s that so-called backlight, and depending on your choice, it can go a plethora of ways. For example, it can glow red as we have shown.
For a few dollars extra it can glow in all colors of the RGB spectrum, making you never bored with it. Once a certain color bores you, just change it! It’s as simple as that. Now for our purposes, we’ll say you’ve taken the full-red edition. The price of Redragon K552 KUMARA, in that case, would be only around $32. We think that’s extremely affordable for all the features it possesses, and the uses it has. Keep on reading if you’re still interested. First up – the quality of keys themselves. They’re a Solid Aircraft-grade aluminum and ABS constructed. They’re also plate mounted and double-shot injected.
We get it-all these terms must confuse you, and rightly so. It’s not extremely important for us to go into detail on the production technology. On the other hand, it is extremely important to realize what exactly you will get. Plate-mounted simply means there’s a metal plate between the switch and the button. That makes a key very rigid and durable and guaranteed to last you for a long time. We need to tell you something before we go on, and that’s the noise level. K552 KUMARA keyboard from Redragon is pretty audible – or as you’d say noisy. It’s not ear-tearing noise, but it’s noticeable, and we think it’s fair of us to warn you.
Now the uses and modifications you can do yourself. The specs of Redragon K552 KUMARA are intended for both hardcore gamers and those who have to type a lot for a long time in an office environment. It’s all made to be a space-efficient version, and even though all the keys are full-sized, the space between them is not wasted. Also, they’re all conflict and ghost free completely, which simply means your PC or a laptop can register multiple keys pressed at once.
You might think that’s common around here, but it’s really not. Usually, cheap keyboards are made that even if you press multiple keys at once, it would recognize only one. That just speaks of the quality this keyboard offers, and how responsive and fast it really is. Especially in the gaming situations where you have to react quickly, or in an office setting where you need to type as fast as possible. In the end, it’s both non-slip to increase the precision of typing, but also spill-resistant to prevent accidents from ruining it. It connects via a USB port, which means it’s wired, unlike Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 Plus. To make things better, it comes equipped with a gold-plated, quality USB connector.

I've been a fan of Razer and their green-colored keyboards. But in my opinion, those are a bit too expensive for my taste, and I was looking for an alternative. Well, I finally found it in form of this keyboard. You can choose between pure red or full RGB model for a few additional dollars. It's great for gaming, keys feel very responsive and I had no problems with it. The price is very good, and I didn't have to empty my wallet to get it. My recommendations.
It took me a month to find and review a lot of keyboards for my budget and the decision fell to my Kumara k552 RGB. I personally give it a 10/10 in all fields. From the moment i started typing i knew this is what i needed and will use it for a long time. My hands are in natural position when i type so there's no pain when typing takes longer. It's clucky and you get used to it and your brain just ignore it after a while. The colors and lightning are mesmerizing so you will catch yourself playing with lights from now and then. Good choice and money well spent.
