Features & Specifications
1. Kailh LH Blue Mechanical Switches
Unlike normal membrane keyboards, this keyboard features mechanical switches, which are way more responsive, have longer life span and more stability from the increased weight, which gives an overall way better typing experience. The Kailh LH Blue Switches are still almost as good as the original Cherry MX Blue switches (which is priced way higher).
2. RGB Backlighting
The Circle Squadron-M Gaming Keyboard features RGB Backlit keys, which look absolutely breathtaking. The LEDs are controllable from the keyboard itself and they can be changed without any additional software installation, which is nice.
3. Braided 1.8M Cable
The keyboard also has a braided cable, resulting in higher durability than normal cables. The length is 1.8M.
4. Anti-Ghosting Keys
With Anti-Ghosting keys, you can press more keys than usual keyboards without the keyboard making an error.
- Suspend Keycap Design
- Solid Aluminium Panel
- Double Colour Injection Keycaps

In conclusion, the Circle Squadron M is an excellent gaming mechanical keyboard in this price range, and it would be better to pick it over the CK104 because of the Indian Warranty. The only disadvantage would be the 10 key less design though, but for most that is no issue.
