Design & Build
This is a TKL-style membrane keyboard. You probably know that TKL means it doesn’t have a numpad. It has only 87 keys, and that’s why it is very compact and lightweight compared to a full-size keyboard. And that’s precisely why many users prefer the TKL-style gaming keyboard. Gamers, in particular, don’t really miss the numeric keypad much. Sure, simulation games might be an exception, but for the most use, it’s not something you’d find yourself desperately needing.
Well, I did mention it’s a lightweight keyboard, but if we focus on the TKL form factor, it’s not excessively light. That’s because its build quality is pretty solid, adding a bit of weight. I’ve tried several gaming keyboards in this price range, including a couple from EvoFox, but overall, I’m impressed with the build quality of this one, especially considering the price. Such a robust build is quite rare in this price range, not just for gaming but also for regular keyboards.
It has a 1.8m long braided cable that’s not prone to tangling. The quality is impressive, so you can count on it being durable. There’s no mention of a waterproof rating, though. Maybe it has some basic protection, but it’s not explicitly stated, so you could add that to the cons list of the EvoFox Deathray TKL.
The coolest feature has to be its RGB backlight—true RGB prism lighting that, as usual, offers a whopping 16 million colours. Being a budget gaming keyboard, you won’t get software control or extensive RGB customization options. But fear not; you can still get many RGB customization options with combinations of keys. There are seven preset RGB effects, including everyone’s favourites like Rainbow and Breathing effects. On top of that, there’s the option to set a custom RGB effect.
You’ve control the brightness and speed adjustments for the lights, and you can even turn off the RGB if it’s not your vibe. So yes, regarding RGB, this keyboard gives you many customization options—something you don’t often find in gaming keyboards within this price range.
The overall RGB backlight on the EvoFox Deathray looks pretty impressive. It doesn’t look very overpowered, which is a common issue in many budget gaming keyboards. So, from any angle, it doesn’t give off that cheap feel. You could even compare its RGB with some premium gaming keyboards, and it holds its own. So, without a doubt, this EvoFox Deathrayd’s RGB adds a nice touch, giving off that true gaming vibe.
Gaming and Typing Experience
The keys on this keyboard are pleasantly soft, highly responsive, and comfortable to use. The best part, in my opinion, is that it’s remarkably silent—almost noiseless. Despite being a TKL keyboard, there’s a decent space between the keys, so you won’t face any issues while using it. The layout prevents accidental key presses, making it suitable for gaming and high-speed writing or programming.
Moreover, it’s comfortable for extended use, and yes, it comes with 19 Anti-Ghosting keys. You also get a Windows lock feature, inbuilt media keys, and three dedicated volume keys. I tested it out for 2-3 hours, and my overall experience with this keyboard was quite satisfying.
So, if you’re looking for a decent RGB gaming keyboard under 1000 Rs, the Evofox Deathray TKL should be at the top of your list. Performance-wise, most gaming keyboards in this price range are similar, but this one stands out with its cool-looking RGB, solid build and good-quality switches. Considering the price, I didn’t find any significant cons worth noting. So, if you’re inclined, you can make this budget gaming keyboard yours.
