Element Gaming Beryllium Review

Closer Look

The switches are set directly into a sheet of brushed aluminium which looks great and feels tough.

Along the top we get various shortcuts, media keys and function controls doubled up on the F keys.

The Beryllium features a full num pad as well as a dedicated mute button and volume roller. You can also see that there is the choice to toggle between 6KRO and NKRO by using the Insert and Delete keys.

Under the keycaps we can see the Kailh RED switches with individual LED lighting.

The included contrasting keycaps may be useful for some should they wish to change the colour to fit in with the base colour.

The under side is made of aqua coloured plastic with 4 non-slip feet to keep things steady on your desk and rear legs should you wish to use them.

The braided cable is similar to that which we saw on the headsets, it is attractive and flexible.

The lighting has several modes including WASD and arrow keys lit up, fully lit, and a reactive mode.

The lighting doesn't seem as bright and clear we would expect, which could be a result of the keycaps blocking the light a little. There are 4 levels of brightness (25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%) as well as being able to be switched off.
