Yunzii AL71 Mechanical Keyboard Review – Design and Functionality

For this Yunzii AL71 Mechanical Keyboard Review, we have the blue mechanical keyboard with crystal white switches. We love the blend of hues on this keyboard since the colours do not look cheap and are eye-catching. 

The keyboard is compact, but not that you are missing dedicated arrow keys. However, it is enough to save considerable space, and that is what matters.

The elegant yet robust design of this keyboard is genuinely impressive. Its smooth matte texture provides a touch that is not pleasing and remarkably therapeutic. 

Moreover, the transparent strips on both sides allow RGB lighting to permeate and illuminate your setup.

The official Yunzii store offers seven colours: black, silver, red, green, pink, blue, and purple. But as mentioned earlier, we have the blue mechanical keyboard with crystal white switches for our review.

 This diverse range caters to various preferences and complements any setup. The aesthetics on our keyboard have a visually stunning colour that complements pastel and bold keycaps.

The keyboard uses CNC aluminium, making it weigh 1.3kg. It is heavier than conventional plastic keyboards and other metallic models. 

The rear of the keyboard has a slot for storing the USB dongle. Next to it are two switches. One is a switch for changing connection modes, and the other is for switching between Windows and Mac.

After the switches, you will find a USB-C port to connect the cable.

Yunzii AL71 Mechanical Keyboard Keycaps and Crystal White Switches

The AL71 uses dye-sublimated PBT, featuring a thickness and quality that ensures long-term durability. Although the labels may not be as sharp, it remains consistent and well-executed. 

The accompanying keycaps boast printed legends and lack transparency. However, the company design incorporates RGBs that shine between the keycaps, producing a captivating and vibrant glow. The outcome is truly impressive.

Our AL71 has the 3-pin linear Crystal White switches. These offer smooth keypresses with subdued sound, making the keyboard ideal for office environments.

Connectivity Options

The AL71 is a highly versatile mechanical keyboard with three connection modes. Wired connectivity uses the USB-C stock cable, and wireless modes are Bluetooth or 2.4GHz.

The Durability of the Yunzii AL71 Mechanical Keyboard

Unlike other CNC-milled keyboards, the AL71 has a simple aluminium case. This material is corrosion and oxidation-resistant, so you can ensure it will last long. 

As mentioned, it is heavier than most keyboards but will remain steady on your desk. With this sturdy material, the AL71 will not move around even when button-smashing during the most intense gaming sessions.

Yunzii added a touch of uniqueness and aesthetic appeal with the moon & star badge above the arrow cluster.

People are often concerned about the durability of any product if they have not heard of the brand. However, it should not be something to worry about in the AL71. Yunzii manufactures high-quality products and uses premium parts like CNC aluminium and PBT keycaps.

The build of this keyboard is top-notch, while the matte finish of its casing offers a smooth, comfortable feel. Plus, its interior has a premium gasket structure.

Aside from durability, the AL71 also offers high-quality comfort to give you the optimal typing experience.

RGB Lighting

One thing we noticed while observing the product for this Yunzii AL71 Mechanical Keyboard Review was its RGB lighting.

Each AL71 has seven different colour modes: gradient movements, flashing, and stagnant. The light shines between keycaps and on the sides of the keyboard. When changing the lighting mode, you only need to press Fn + / keys.

You can use the pre-set keyboard shortcuts to cycle through lighting effects. If you want to customise further, download the Yunzii app for more in-depth settings.
