    Unlike the majority of mechanical gaming keyboards in the market today (that use Cherry and Kailh switches) Sandberg decided to equip the Hailstorm with the less popular Outemu Blue switches which are certified for up to 50 million actuation, require 30 grams of actuation force and provide both significant audible and tactile feedback (clicky). Other features include a floating key design (easier cleaning), RGB illumination (7 colors selection) for all of its keys with 10 lighting effects, integrated wrist rest, metal plate beneath the keys for increased durability and several blue LEDs all over its sides (adding to the overall design/looks of the keyboard). The list of features may not be as long as with some other models in the market but since this is the first mechanical keyboard by Sandberg let's take a closer look and see what it has to offer.
