Redragon is a brand I first came across when exploring the exhibition halls at the Computex trade show, and I noted with interest their various peripheral offerings at the time. The brand is an offshoot of a large keyboard and mouse manufacturer in China and was established as a result of its interest in expanding to the west. You may have already read our recent review of their K530 Draconic keyboard, which was the result of them reaching out to us. There have been multiple Redragon mice reviews since as well, so I felt it was only fitting to cover more of their keyboards. Thanks again to Redragon for sending TechPowerUp a review sample!
The Redragon representative had several keyboards in mind for my next review, but I sought to shake things up a bit from the norm, especially as the previous Redragon keyboard was a 60% one and I have many more 60% keyboards for review. The K585 Diti is a keyboard no doubt, but it is really a gamepad whichever way you shake it. Gamepads, such as the Cooler Master ControlPad, allow for novel form factors and designs beyond the usual rectangular slab, and we see how Redragon aimed to make use of all five fingers on your right hand. Sorry left-handed users, the K585 Diti is best used with the right hand, which I mentioned here so you won't feel letdown any later in this review which begins with a look at the specifications below.
