Mionix Wei Review

👤by Matthew Hodgson Comments 📅29-10-17
Unfortunately, due to many things mentioned on the previous page, we’re not looking at an excellent outcome here. There’s certainly call for a minimalist keyboard in the market, and if that’s what you’re after, this keyboard is a cracker. However, having said that, the general consumer is likely to expect more for their £190; namely a USB passthrough and an option of rear elevation.

Mionix has used Cherry MX Red key switches, which are arguably the most popular and useful for gaming; this feels a little bit out of place, due to the keyboard seemingly being targeted away from gamers and instead positioned in a market for content producers and artists. Some choice would be good, particularly the option of Brown, Black and Blue keys.

The overall appeal of the keyboard is the strange colour schemes, ability to purchase crazy colour keycaps and the overall simplicity of the board, however, at £189.99, we can’t help but feel that this keyboard is priced way above where it should be based on features available.

If you’re a gamer, there’s certainly better keyboards out there for substantially less coin, but if you seek a minimalist keyboard with an impressive build quality, the Wei is one of very few that can truly deliver on this front.

If you seek something different and quirky, the Mionix Wei with Longpad and coloured keycaps should satisfy your needs, but the cost will

+ Minimalistic

+ Longpad is extremely comfortable
+ RGB Backlighting is subtle
+ Strong build quality
+ Large rubber base prevents any movement
+ Cherry MX Red key switches

+- Software does the job, just
+- Yellow keys are an acquired taste

- Price
- Lack of USB passthrough
