The head of wire adopts anti-pull fixed bayonet design, so don’t worry about the connection failure caused by the mistake of touching the keyboard. But its disadvantage is the high cost.
In addition, I am fond of Durgod customized cup pad, which uses the same material as mouse pad. It is printed with logo on its right side, hot resistant and moisture protection. The pad is round and suitable for common cups. Its back side was plastic material, antiskid and abrasion resistant. It is not for sale.

Using experience of Durgod Taurus K310 Nebular
The Durgod Taurus K310 Silver switch lacks the sense of paragraph and the representative sound of mechanical keyboard, but this also depends on where you are using it. If it is used in a noisy environment or a place only with you, you can choose the louder blue switch, brown switch and other switches; If you’re using it in a quiet office environment or at home, especially if you like to work at night, you need a keyboard with minimal sound. The tiny sound of the Durgod Taurus K310 silver switch meets my needs. PBT two-color closed keycap adopts concave design to cater to our finger with comfortable hand feeling.
Since the silver switch is shorter 0.7mm than that of the red switch, the typing speed is faster. Quick users can even experience a cool feeling. The article about a thousand words can be completed in more than ten minutes. The Durgod Taurus K310 unexpectedly gives me this kind of experience.
