MISTEL Barocco – Review

MISTEL Barocco an interesting take on ergonomics and compactness

MISTEL are another keyboard manufacturer joining the ever-growing list of mechanical keyboard manufacturers. I was given the chance to have the first look at their Barocco 60% split design mechanical keyboard.

You read that correctly, the MISTEL Barocco is a keyboard whose halves can be completely detached from one another.

The model I received for this review is one that utilises my second favourite switch, Cherry MX browns and it makes it stand out among the growing trend of using other brands switches such as Gateron or Kailh. Although that is not to say these other brands are any worse.

MISTEL are a company based in Taiwan, and they have an interesting take on the humble keyboard.

We are MISTEL, a design driven, innovative, professional keyboard R & D team. “Each keyboard that is printed with a MISTEL logo must have its distinctive uniqueness” is our core philosophy for product development. We believe that the keyboard is not just an instrument, but a partner which each user uses to build their dreams. Through you rhands and the keyboard, you can make possible a lot of impossibles. Each keyboard is a story of emotions that pass through in the making. Therefore, we are determined to make the keyboard even stronger with vitality!

So with that all said and done lets begin!
