AULA LED Backlit Gaming Keyboard Review

AULA LED Backlit Gaming Keyboard Review

Today I will be doing an AULA LED Backlit Gaming Keyboard Review.

 

Are you in search of an inexpensive, quality, backlit gaming keyboard? If so then the AULA may be a great choice for you. Lets get into some of the specifics.

 

Product: AULA LED Backlit Gaming Keyboard

Price: $24.98

Best Place to Buy: Amazon.com

My Personal Ranking: 88/100

 

The AULA LED Backlit Gaming Keyboard is a comfortable sleek unit that gets the job done. I really like that you can switch between the 3 various color options depending on your mood at the time. On top of that combined with each color is the function to toggle between 4 different lighting modes including: off, low, high and pulse. Personally I wouldn’t make much use of the pulse function but some might like that.

Many would fine it handy that each individual key lights up making is very easy to see the keys in a low light situation. The last thing I will say about the lighting before we move on is that it also will turn off when the PC goes into sleep mode. This is a nice option so that you don’t have that constant glow coming off the keyboard when you forget to manually turn it off or would rather have it turn off automatically.

 

Head over to Amazon to buy the AULA Keyboard!

 

Who is this Backlit Keyboard suitable for?

 

I think it is a solid choice for anyone looking for a new keyboard honestly. You are not getting the best of the best here with the AULA but you are getting your moneys worth for sure. At $25.95 you can’t go wrong and I would say give it a shot if you are on a tight budget or are in need of a backup keyboard. It compares fairly well with the CM Storm Devastator Gaming Keyboard but without the combo’d mouse.

As far as gaming goes it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that a top of the line piece would have or as many buttons. The lack of the extra customizable buttons means you have a lot less options for keybinding. If you are a hardcore MLG player this one might not be for you. If you are a lighter gamer, casual PC user or even a Dot Com professional then you should be just fine.

 

Are there any downsides here?AULA Backlit LED Gaming Keyboard Review

 

The one downside I have seen and others have reported as well is the size and shape of the “enter” key. If you are used the the fully horizontal style then this may bug you. The way it would is because you would find yourself accidentally hitting the key directly to its left from time to time.

I am sure after some practice your fingers would get trained and would become less bothersome. Or maybe you are already used to this key layout and would have no problems whatsoever. I don’t see it as a big issue I just thought I would address it.

 

Concluding thoughts:

 

Thank you for reading my AULA LED Backlit Gaming Keyboard Review  thus far. I am going to let you know that you will not be getting hurt by buying this keyboard. As I have said it is very inexpensive for a backlit keyboard and you would be hard pressed to find one with the same feel, quality and smoothness of the AULA. If you would like to compare AULA to another similar board, check out the Redragon Karura K502 which is also in the same price / quality bracket.

    Not bad, personally I really like mechanical keyboards, but I know a decent budget keyboard when I see one.

    There is a new keyboard out (Sorry can’t remember the name) but it allows you to switch out your key switches just as easy as your keys. I think it’s awesome and you may want to make a review on it.

    Thanks for your review on the AULA LED keyboard! I see this every now and then on Amazon, and I do have a desktop that needs a keyboard ‘upgrade’ to one with pretty lights. I’m loving that purple color. Looks like you wrote this article late last year would the keyboard still be a good one to buy?

    • Anthony

      Hi iirai,

      You are welcome and thanks for commenting it is well received. I think the AULA keyboard should suit you just fine if you are looking for a good cheap keyboard. Let me know if you have further questions.

      Take care!

    Hi Anthony, Thaks for this good and useful review. I am actually thinking of getting one like this on my next trip to a computer store. It didn’t happen and I bumped into your review. For those of us who have room-mates and wouldn’t like to disturb anyone while working late, we need 2 main features that are supported by this AULA Keyboard – backlit keys and quiet keying. I don’t mind the colors but would think the offer price is a steal! If I can wait for the online delivery, I’d buy online.

    • Anthony

      Hi Fred,

      It sounds like this AULA Gaming Keyboard would suit you well. Typically when I buy these sort of things I just order them online from Amazon or Newegg. It is much easier then going to the store for me because of how far away I live. That plus a lot of times after work I feel like just going home rather then shopping and rubbing shoulders with strangers. Wow that makes me sound like a hermit haha! Anyways I really appreciate you taking the time to comment and if you need anything at all just let me know.

    This keyboard seems really well. Ok it may not be the best one around but sure it is enough to complete the job, no matter if you’re a hardcore gamer or not.
    I like these kinda suitable for everyone and very task. I actually really like keyboards with RGB lights and effects, altough i know it’s not a parameter of functionality.

    • Anthony

      Hey Tyler,

      Glad you read my article here! The AULA keyboard is certainly an option for a lower budget and your right it does look cool with the lights! No, its not a necessity. But it looks pretty darn awesome! haha Hmm… maybe it is a necessity.

      Thanks again,

    Great review Anthony of the AULA LED Backlit Gaming Keyboard. I see that it’s a hugely popular keyboard, at least on Amazon — and it has a great customer rating too. This seems like an awesome keyboard for people who are on a tight budget but want something that is gaming-oriented and looks cool. I don’t need a new keyboard at the moment, but I’ll definitely tell my friends about it. Thanks!

    • Anthony

      Hi Paul!

      I appreciate the praise! This keyboard is very popular and I think it has a lot to do with the price and quality. When buying something like this it is nice to see lots of positive reviews. Thanks for spreading the word about my blog.

      Thanks again,

    • Anthony

      Hey thanks for the comment! I’m not 100% sure about shipping to Norway. You will have to just check for yourself on Amazon unfortunately. I appreciate the kind words about the site. It is coming a long and i’m trying my best to keep new reviews and articles coming out for you guys!

      Thanks again,

    Anthony,

    You just helped me figure out a Christmas gift for my nephew who is a big gamer and is always upgrading his computer. I have no doubt he will love this one for his COD game he always plays.

    Thanks
    Marko

    • Hello Marko,

      I think its a great idea to get this for your nephew! I’m sure he will love it I know I always love getting presents like this. Take care.

      Thanks again,

      -Anthony

  • Thanks for the in depth review. I like that it shuts itself down if you forget, and I don’t really know how anyone could go wrong at such a fair price! I think that I have personally paid more for far less! Did the enter button issue give you any real annoyance? Thanks again! ☺

    • Hi Brandon!

      Thanks for stopping by and checking out my review. I agree with you on your assessments it is a fair price. I don’t think the enter button is real critical because you would adapt fairly quickly if you are used to another format. I wouldn’t let that little detail stop me from getting this keyboard. It really is a great deal. Let me know if I can help in anyway going forward.

      Thanks again,
      -Anthony

  • joe

    wow amazing review i also wanted to know if theere is a keyboard that is lit up instead of my laptops which isnt

    • Hello Joe!

      You could plug this keyboard into your laptop if you wished and use it instead of the the one built in. That could be an option if you needed to use your current laptop in a low light situation. Thanks for checking my review out and let me know if you have further questions.

      Thanks again,
      -Anthony

    Hi Anthony, I enjoyed reading your review (very well written by the way!) about this keyboard, but admit I was hesitant when I saw the word gaming, as I don’t have a clue what it’s all about. However, having jumped right in I discovered it doesn’t matter, since that keyboard is just a keyboard and can be used for just good old typing. I love the lights, never even knew they could do that. When it’s late at night and I’m writing under the glare of a strong desk lamp, I wonder if a lamp is even necessary. What do you think?

    • Hi Hindy!

      Thank you for the kind words. You are 100% correct that a keyboard is a keyboard. This one is just fancy! The lights however are great at night as you can see your keyboard in the dark. It is awesome. Practical and cool looking. If you happen to be sleeping by the keyboard you may want to switch it off because it can be pretty bright. But that is done easily with the push of a button. I appreciate you stopping by and let me know if I can further assist. I’m here to help 🙂
