Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The AW510K is a surprisingly conventional full-size keyboard. It has 105 keys, including shared media controls on the F9 through F12 keys. The keys have a very light touch and are quick to depress. The RGB lighting plays an outsized role in establishing the look.
