Introduction And Specifications
It's not an insult to say that there's nothing extraordinary about Turtle Beach's Impact 500 mechanical keyboard. In fact, it's almost as if it was designed that way. The all-black tenkeyless Impact 500 (opens in new tab) features no backlit keys and has a simple and compact rectangular design, almost as if the Das Keyboard 4C Professional and Nixeus Moda v2 got together and had a baby.
Also, yes, Turtle Beach makes keyboards. Like many companies these days, Turtle Beach is testing the waters of gaming peripherals, and the Impact 500 and the higher-end Impact 700 (opens in new tab) are among the company's early efforts. (There's also a non-mechanical-switch Impact 100 (opens in new tab) keyboard and two gaming mice from the company.)
Note: There are several specifications that Turtle Beach has not published, and my questions to company representatives regarding those details have gone unanswered.
