Mountain Everest 60 Compact Gaming Keyboard Review

Mountain is a fairly new player when it comes to peripherals, but they’re one of the most advanced and enthusiastic brands out there, pushing for real innovation, not just market hype. It’s been around two years now since they launched their first keyboard. While it may have been one of the most expensive keyboards I’ve ever reviewed, there’s no doubt it was one of the absolute best I’ve ever seen, overflowing with unique and innovative features that raised the bar for high-end gaming keyboards. That’s a tough act to follow though, and rather than trying to go bigger and more complicated, Mountain are scaling things down. The new Mountain Everest 60 is a 60% keyboard, slimming things down for those who want something more compact, nimble and portable.

Mountain Everest 60

No stranger to innovation, Mountain has designed a unique 60% keyboard layout, which still offers arrow keys. However, even if you did want to add a numberpad, there are expansion ports built in that will allow you to add one on to either the left or the right side of the keyboard. However, it’s the quality of the switches that really put Mountain on top. It’s available with Linear 45, Tactile 55 or Linear 45 Speed switches, which are rated for a staggering 100 million actuations. They’ve been clipped and lubricated by Mountain to ensure a smooth and more stable action, as well as remaining quieter too. Mountain says they’ve performed “Manual lubrication of all stabilizers with acclaimed Krytox GPL 205 Grade 0 lubricant for greatly reduced rattle sounds.”

Furthermore, the keyboard has been packed with layers of foam and silicon to reduce reverberations in the body of the keyboard. This is all topped with a set of premium PBT keycaps, per-key RGB lighting, it’s all Cherry MX style compatible, and really, we’re just getting started with what this keyboard has to offer!
