Performance

Once I fully charged the Redragon EISA K686 PRO SE Keyboard, it was time to connect it to my son’s computer and let him take it through his gaming process, particularly his Fortnite obsession. I mostly used his feedback to rate the keyboard. He loves the design, the feel, and the responsiveness of the keys, and I was amazed that he figured out what the keys were without any reference.
