The Omen Spacer Wireless TKL Keyboard is a smaller keyboard without a number pad which is typically not necessary for gaming. Plus, the smaller size will take up less space on your desk.
One thing you notice when it powers up is the bright white backlit keys. The WASD and arrow keys were different in that they were lit up with red lighting.
These colors are not full of customization capabilities however, you can customize by turning the lights on and off. You can also choose to animate the lighting with a wave or ripple. Overall, the lighting is simple, yet very nice to look at.
The keys are comfortable and seem to have a nice feel when you are typing.
The Cherry MX Brown switches have a response time of 1ms which makes this a very speedy response using this keyboard.
With some mechanical keyboards, they become almost annoyingly loud but this keyboard does not seem to be as loud as some which is a nice feature, in my opinion.
The battery life is pretty good and I like the fact there is a battery light that blinks when the battery is getting low.
The overall size and spacing of the keyboard are about right with very little adjustment for me from my other keyboard. I do miss the number pad as I use it quite a bit for work.
With the 100% anti-ghosting with N-key rollover, you are able to press as many keys as you want and not miss a move.
You can purchase the HP Omen Spacer Wireless TKL Keyboard on HP.com or Omen.com. The suggested retail price is $159.99 but at the time of this writing, it was on sale for $127.99.
Verdict: HP Omen Spacer Wireless TKL Keyboard
This keyboard is a smaller, mechanical style keyboard with nice red and white LED backlighting behind the keys that makes it shine in the light or dark. The one thing I miss is the number pad, but I don’t think this keyboard was made for an office job. The price is a little high but not too high. The performance and look brings a quality choice if you are looking for a new keyboard.
