Design:

Redragon Karura K502 Gaming Keyboard looks fabulous. This keyboard made up of plastic but it doesn’t look cheap. It weights 1.3 pounds, which is comparatively lighter than most of the gaming keyboards.

Some users complained that design of Karura K502 is almost similar to MSI Interceptor DS4100. But as compared to DS4100 this one is cheaper.

Redragon Karura K502 is a Silent Gaming Keyboard with 104 Chiclet keys for longevity and durability. This keyboard uses Rubber dome Keys, but these keys feel very soft.  These keys very quiet, so you can enjoy fortnight gaming.
