Trust the GXT 865 ASTA: excellent value for money!

There is one thing that those who gamble cannot do without. A good mechanical keyboard. But if in these times we can have devices at an attractive price that are still good, then that’s exactly what we want. This is exactly what the Trust GXT 865 ASTA keyboard is intended for, which we tested and which is now even available in the Black Friday offer. But can the players like it despite a more attractive price?

The design is simple from the start, but very appealing. As soon as we turn it on, it lights up and we have several effects to choose from. In fact, we can access a few different lighting patterns as we type. There’s only one thing I’m missing, but I’ll talk about that later.

There are a few points that Trust emphasizes as essential about this keyboard. Right from the start, the keys respond quickly. We can also choose from 7 different lighting patterns. We also have advanced anti-ghosting technology that is essential for every gamer. The same goes for a mode where you can disable the Windows key. In addition, this keyboard offers 11 keys for direct access to multimedia functions. In fact, they are interesting features.

In terms of design, the keys are black and sit on a metal plate. However, we have the Trust logo above the number buttons.

Everything is very neat and we don’t have any keyboard shortcuts or other things in the way. Easy and uncomplicated. In fact, it has a very similar design to the Logitech G512, which we really liked too. Simplicity is a very good thing sometimes.

However, below we have a feature that is very convenient. We can choose where the cable leaves the keyboard. In the middle or left or right. For many, this may not be important, but for those who want a tidy desk, it is.

We are now connecting this keyboard to the PC using an approximately 1.8 meter long USB cable. That gives a lot of freedom.

Now a minor matter. Sometimes we have to remove the keys for cleaning reasons. Now this trust bet comes with an accessory for this purpose that is kept on the underside of the device. It’s something that doesn’t usually come up, even on top of the line keyboards.

Once I got tired of typing, I used this keyboard for both work and play. I have nothing to bet on in games. I mainly played Doom and Rise Of The Tomb Rider and the experience was pretty satisfactory. In fact, the keyboard responded well on every occasion. The noise level of the keys is neither too much nor too little. In my opinion a good option for those who want something between MX Blue (louder) and red. The only thing I was missing was the tactile feedback. However, this would make the keyboard more expensive and the value for money would go away. There is one more detail, however.

So that nothing goes wrong, we have to do just that when we press a key.

Although we don’t have any special keyboard shortcuts, they are present on this keyboard and can be accessed via the function key.

We can change the colors with the ScrLK key. That means we have access to several rainbow modes. Here is one thing that I am missing. I wish I could completely change the keyboard colors and only have one. So we need to have a mix of colors and what changes is the pattern.

The Trust GXT 865 ASTA keyboard is undoubtedly an excellent choice for those looking to use their computer for a mixed experience. In other words, work and gamble and not intend to spend a lot of money. It has an excellent quality / price ratio without a doubt.

The price is now 49 euros on Black Friday, which makes it an excellent option that we definitely recommend! More information can be found here.
