Expert testers lauded the NuPhy Air75 for its multi-device connectivity and its programmability. They also liked how quiet the keyboard was and were impressed with its RGB lighting. However, they didn’t appreciate that its backlighting didn’t shine through its keycaps. Its ergonomics were also mediocre, and its brightly colored keycaps may not suit everyone’s taste.

What the brand doesn’t always tell you…

our Verdict

The NuPhy Air75 received critical acclaim for its compact design, as well as its wireless features and programmability. Expert reviewers from Mac Sources confirmed that the Air75 could be connected to up to 4 devices wirelessly through Bluetooth and its USB receiver. This gives it an advantage over the Microsoft Surface Keyboard, which we’ve covered in our Microsoft Surface Keyboard review.

Product testers from Rtings also liked that its RGB lighting and all keys were programmable through the NuPhy Console software. During their tests, they affirmed that the keyboard was quiet to type on but mentioned that their test was based on Gatreon Low-Profile Brown switches. They also liked that it has a latency of 6.3ms, which is slightly better than alternatives such as the NPET K20, which we looked at in our NPET K20 review.

However, testers complained that its keycaps aren’t shine-through, so keys can’t be seen in the dark. If you don’t prefer any backlighting, check out our Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 review.

Overview

Released in late 2021, the NuPhy Air75 is a mid-tier mechanical keyboard that is compact in size and wireless. It is very portable and bag-friendly, measuring only 12.4 by 5.2 inches. Like most highly rated keyboards, the Air75 also has RGB backlighting and up to 21 different backlight modes.

It also stands out from the best wireless keyboards because its Bluetooth connectivity allows it to pair with three devices, and its USB wireless receiver adds a fourth. It can also be used when charging through its USB cable. If you’re wondering how many keys are on its keyboard, the Air75 has a total of 84 keys, and its switches are also hot-swappable.

Its onboard battery can also last up to 48 hours of continuous use. The Air75 also comes with two strips of RGB lights on its sides for aesthetics, and in terms of ergonomics, it is a low-profile keyboard with one incline setting. Check out our HyperX Alloy Origins 65 Review if you’d prefer more incline adjustability.
