Build Quality

The quality of the Redragon k552 in this price range is excellent. Although the material of the key caps is ABS plastic, the overall texture is very strong, since the keyboard base is made of metal alloy, and it is no problem for daily game use. Overall, there are no obvious flaws in the design and quality of the keyboard, and the Redragon k552 is more than enough to outperform most keyboards in this price range.

Keypads

The keycaps are double shot and very crisp to press. The keycaps are the only common complaint from buyers of this keyboard. The keycaps are made of ABS plastic, which looks more matte and not shiny. The plastic for the keycaps is the thinnest I’ve ever seen, and the keycaps have several flaws that bend easily to some stress.

The thin keycaps are definitely the reason for some of the harsher noise this keyboard makes. However, over time, ABS plastic is expected to become shinier. While keycaps are a complaint of most buyers, ABS plastic keycaps are acceptable at this price point.
