DrunkDeer A75 Pro Keyboard Review

I have recently covered the DrunkDeer G60 and now I have received A75 PRO from Drunkdeer. It’s an upgraded version of their bestselling A75 model which is basically a pretty great and cheap alternative to Wooting 60HE, but with bigger 75% layout.

TLDR: DrunkDeer A75Pro is much heavier keyboard because it comes with a premium aluminium case. It still has Hall Effect Switches with Rapid Trigger and Dynamic Keystrokes. This DrunkDeer keyboard is also hot-swappable. It’s great value at $119.

In 2024 we really have lots of keyboards with Hall Effect switches to choose from. They range between $80 and $250. DrunkDeer A75Pro falls into a low budget range here, but I would say that the main thing that differentiates these mechanical keyboards are:

  1. Software – all Hall Effect keyboards have that Rapid Trigger, 0.1 to 0.2mm adjustable actuation point and DKS features. But software can be a hurdle here and Drunkdeer definitely has one of the best software solutions out there with their Antler which is really easy to use.
  2. Magnetic switches – there are Gateron, Gateron Lekkerand DrunkDeer has their own Raesha magnetic switches which feel just as good as Gateron Jade in my opinion.
  3. Latency – polling isn’t the only thing determining keyboard’s latency, so 8000Hz keyboard doesn’t have to be faster than a 1000Hz one. There are multiple other input factors. A75Pro had in my tests around 4ms latency, which is honestly pretty great. I think only Wooting 60HE has better latency from the competition.

In my experience A75PRO is pretty great for gaming, Rapid Trigger works great and it feels super responsive. I also tested it in OSU and did slightly better than usual, but that might have been just luck (I’m not an expert in osu! 😉

I really like the new case, it feels super premium with metal-like texture. It’s heavy at 1 kg, but not extra heavy, I think it’s pretty good weight.

You can purchase the A75 Pro from an official DrunkDeer website. Amazon will be available later.
