Excellent Gaming Response, Water Resistant, Great RGB Lighting, Solid Quality
WHAT WE DISLIKED:
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.

To say the B975 is “Bloody” fantastic would be a bad pun we won’t allow here (even though it’s true). On the plus side, the optical keyboard is a great device. I firmly believe it has a competitive gaming advantage, yet the water resistant feature is great for anyone wanting a keyboard to last a long time. It’s not the strongest feeling mechanical I’ve ever felt, but it has really good quality regardless. It even looks great with its RGB lighting effects. I may think there’s room for improvement on the software, but I wouldn’t put it into a category as a negative either.
As a result of cutting edge technology, the keyboard is right at $150 on Amazon and Newegg. That price is steep, but considering the features and accessories it’s actually a competitive price. I feel like Bloody is doing a good job of matching what their competitors offer, with the exception of the Light Strike switches. Those are just better. I won’t quite go to a Must Have Award, but the Bloody B975 Light Strike Optical Gaming Keyboard is certainly deserving of the PureOC Editor’s Choice Award. Go out and get some optical switches for your competitive gaming!
Needless to say I love computer hardware. With my reviews, I never forget what it's like trying to find parts on a tight budget and how excited I am about any new component I get my hands on. If there was a good effort in the design, then I'll find a reason why each component is great for someone!
