▲First-class iNSIST G55 mechanical keyboard for a long test experience
The keyboard was bought on May 10. Because it is the editor’s favorite CHERRY MX Red, I mainly use it to type and play games. The average number of characters input every day reaches up to 4,000 to 5,000. I mainly play the game of FPS for at least one hour a day on average.

First, let’s talk about the experience in using the keyboard to type. Many people think it is inappropriate to use game keyboard in office. In reality, it’s wrong. Game keyboard pays more attention to the comfortable hand feeling and the reliability for long time use. Compared with the common keyboard in office, game keyboard has more outstanding hand feeling. Just the appearance is not so “common”.
iNSIST G55 pays more attention to game experience, so it uses the layout of 87 keypads which is more popular among professional game players. For some users who do financial work, they may feel inconvenient with the lack of numeric keypad. But if you often type or you are “Coding Peasant”, iNSIST G55 can totally meet your requirements, because the major key area still uses standard American arrangement. The arrangement of each key mapping is designed according to human engineering. Users will feel it is proper when they use this kind of keyboard for the first time.
CHERRY MX Red Switches used by the keyboard is light and easy for users to enter text rapidly without big resistance. Users can smoothly tap the keyboard up and down. The sound made by bottoming out is soft, different from the sharp sound made by MX Blue. After using it for two months, the editor can use Cheery MX more smoothly. The key is that the hand feeling of original Cheery MX can remain for a long time and it is high quality with long service life. At present, the editor feels it is the same to press each key on the keyboard without too heavy or too light feeling.
When use it to play games, the editor also gets accustomed to the feeling of MX Red. The light feeling in pressing keys can improve the operating efficiency of game players unconsciously. The editor often plays games for a few hours after work on each Friday. It is very comfortable to use iNSIST 55. Players do not need to operate the keyboard with difficulty. Instead, they can play easily enough. Although MX Red is not the fastest and it is only light and comfortable, it lets players operate more smoothly when enjoying the game and then improve the performance in games.
The keycaps and frame of the keyboard use skin-type UV process with good texture. The process has such advantages as fine sense of touch and it lets the keyboard more beautiful under backlight condition. The disadvantage is poor dirt resistance. As expected, the keyboard is easy to become very smooth. Many players are not interested in it because of this. But after using it for two months, I find it is not very difficult to maintain if users clean it at ordinary times.
▲After it is used for two months, the degree that the keys become smooth is acceptable and it is not difficult to clean.
It is very easy to clean away the dust in the gap by using the small broom. Keycaps and frame that
Are easy to become smooth can be cleaned by wet tissue. The technology of surface materials is also more advanced. It is easier to clean iNSIST G55 than we imagine. After cleaning, the sense of touch on the surface does not change obviously. If users clean it at ordinary times, the skin-type keyboard is also very easy to use.
After the keyboard is used for two months, the paint on the keycap does not peel off when it becomes smooth lightly. The keycap with UV process is not as fragile as we imagine. It can be used for a long time under normal condition. UV process can realize soft effect of being pervious to light. All keys of iNSIST 55 use LED backlight design. To ensure good sense of touch and soft light, the keycap with UV process is the best choice.
Eight keycaps of electronic sports contained in the keyboard is very practical in games. The material of these keycaps and the sense of touch are different from that of other keycaps to avoid wrong press in using. When playing competitive games, the player may fail because of one wrong press. The eight keycaps used in games are polished and will become more hard-wearing.
The editor uses all-key breathing light all the time and local lightening when playing games. Because the function of keyboard is simplified and it doesn’t need to install drivers, it is convenient to switch the light without occupying computer memory. When the light is dim, the backlight in this environment is practical.
The accessories of iNSIST G55 are considerate, such as the attached sponge palm rest. The height can support the palm to stretch out naturally and comfortably. Besides, accessories such as the key puller, cleaning broom and keycaps are very practical. It is convenient to change keycaps and maintain the keyboard. The considerate product is rare among similar keyboards.
Editor’s summary: iNSIST G55 is a keyboard with good reputation among the player group of me. The cool shell and practical function can attract players. The original CHERRY MX Red switches is the biggest selling point. It has exquisite process, simple function set and reasonable price. I strongly recommend game players to buy iNSIST G55.
