Trust GXT 834 Callaz, a compact and cheap mechanical keyboard

Trust has launched the GXT 834 Callaz, a compact mechanical keyboard that has a very marked gaming side, but that is committed, however, to not limiting itself to said approach and to maintain high versatility, which allows it to offer a good user experience both in games and in other tasks, including long typing sessions.

I know that if we stay on the surface, it’s easy to think that the Trust GXT 834 Callaz is a peripheral designed exclusively for the world of gaming, but when we delve into its specifications we realize that it is not so, and that it is much more than just another mechanical gaming keyboard. Trust has used, in this model, Red Outemu mechanical switches, which have a lifespan of up to 50 million keystrokes and a travel of 4 mm, in addition to a 47g actuation force.

The fact that Trust has used these types of switches, which are linear, uniform, smooth and silent, is already a clear indicator that it has opted for a gaming but balanced approach, instead of to focus on absolute specialization. Personally, I think this position is very successful, as it makes the GXT 834 Callaz a more interesting solution for the average user. In this sense, its sale price also represents a very important value, since this model is one of the most balanced in terms of value for money that I have had the opportunity to see to date.

Trust GXT 834 Callaz

The GXT 834 Callaz has a markedly angular design and a very compact finish, although to achieve such a small size it does not have the number pad. The connection to the PC is made via USB cable, and according to Trust the GXT 834 Callaz has a response time of 8 ms. Its small size translates into a minimal impact on our desk, which means that we will have more free space for other things, but at the same time we will not have to give up all the keys of a gaming keyboard, such as an eye-catching design and LED lighting. Customizable RGB.
