Mushkin Introduces the Carbon KB-001, Its First Mechanical Keyboard
Mushkin is a brand that’s particularly known for its memory products and storage solutions, but the company is planning to widen its assortment and step into the booming gaming peripheral market. Its first gaming-branded product will be the Mushkin Carbon KB-001, a colorful mechanical keyboard.
The design of the KB-001 is quite striking and sleek, featuring a frameless steel aesthetic. The top side of the enclosure is made out of aircraft grade CNC anodized aluminum. The keys of the mechanical keyboard are being supported by a double layer PCB of fiberglass. At the front of the Carbon KB-001, Mushin has integrated a fixed, inclining base for wrist support.
The mechanical keyboard uses the Kailh Brown switches and has full RGB-support. At the moment, it is unclear if the Carbon KB-001 will also be made available with other switches.
You can adjust the colors with Mushkin’s included software and colors are programmable for the whole keyboard or per key. According to Mushkin, the keyboard features full n-key rollover, a Windows key lock, anti-ghosting technology and a durable, braided cable.
The price point of the Mushkin Carbon KB-001 would be set at around $70 USD. Although Mushkin plans to release the keyboard soon, a more specific release date hasn’t been given yet.
