Max Keyboard X8 and X9 Backlit Mechanical KeyboardAnyone heard of Max Keyboard before? Cause I haven’t, but they recently sent us a couple of their top of the line backlit mechanical keyboards for review and it turns out they’re pretty awesome!

The keyboards they sent us were the Nighthawk X8 and Nighthawk X9 keyboards. While both keyboards are similar in appearance, the Nighthawk X8 comes with Cherry MX Brown keyswitches and blue LEDs while the Nighthawk X9 comes with Cherry MX Red keyswitches and red LEDs. In addition to Cherry MX mechanical keyswitches, both keyboards will come with wrist rests, gold plated USB connectors, a braided cable, internal memory for storing macros and macro profiles, a “game mode” for disabling the Windows key, headphone/mic out, a full speed USB 2.0 hub, and more.

For those interested in the keyboards, the Nighthawk X8 is currently available at the Max Keyboard website for $144.99 while the Nighthawk X9 is currently available for $149.99.
