Bloody B975 Light Strike Optical Gaming Keyboard Review

Posted April 6, 2018 by Josh Jackson in Peripherals


Price at time of Review: $149.99


Excellent Gaming Response, Water Resistant, Great RGB Lighting, Solid Quality


I would highly recommend the B975 for any online competitive gamer. The difference is small, but it won't feel small during a close match. Bloody's optical switches aren't as beneficial for other types of keyboard users, but don't ignore that awesome water resistant feature.

Packaging and Specifications

Let’s start by asking the first important question: Does this keyboard come in a box? Why, yes it does! I’m glad we got that out of the way. On a more serious note, the packaging looks pretty nice.

All of the components are nicely protected, but I’m surprised that the B975 has so many accessories included. Bloody is allowing the user to have a variety of customization options in one package. There’s 8 key caps in red and clear to replace your typical gaming layouts for Q,W,E,R,A,S,D, and F. There’s also a key puller provided, which is always nice.

The specifications put the key actuation point at 1.5 mm with a travel distance of 3.5 mm, so the switches shouldn’t feel too radically different from other mechanical keyboards. The latency, however places the switches 30ms faster than a traditional mechanical switch. Bloody is bragging the only input lag you should expect is pressing the key from 0 to the 1.5 mm actuation point, resulting in 0.2 ms between what you want to do and when it happens on screen. We’ll see how that executes in a bit, but the rest of the specs are listed below.

Connector: USB
Key Style: Optic switch
Key Response:0.2ms
Anti-Ghosting Key:100% Anti-ghosting key
Gaming Keycaps:8 ABS Keycaps
Hotkey:Multimedia Hotkey
Backlit:Customize RGB Animation
Backlit Brightness: Adjustable
Space-Bar: Screw enhanced space-bar
Memory Backlight: 6 Free driver RGB lighting modes
Key Lifetime: Up to 100 million keystrokes
Report Rate: 1000Hz/1ms
Oh, and don’t forget to key in on that lifetime. 100 million keystrokes is twice the amount of many mechanical switches!
