My Personal Experience with Bloody B318:
The Keyboard itself is well designed and looks premium when holding it. The Palm rest is too short and it could be better. It is plain plastic and I wished it was rubber but none the less it is there.
I have been using this keyboard for a year now and during this whole time, it has never shown signs of input lag and late response.
The Keycaps were never washed and are the same as new. Bloody designed it well, and even now when I ask my friends to guess for how long have I been using it? they generally say a month or two at the most, but I know that I’ve been using it for about a year now.
The Backlit lighting could be better as well. I would prefer RGB lighting.
The lighting became Dull with time. It was brighter when it was new, and now it seems like some areas are getting noticeably darker. The water resistant feature is something that I like the most. I’ve tested it and it works perfectly. If you spill water on the keyboard, it will simply drain through the holes in the bottom. and the keyboard will face no issue.
The rubber feet and the special sleeved wire is also appreciated.
In short, I think the Bloody B318 is definitely worth the price. I personally Got it for $40 and I’ve never regretted it. I highly recommend it as a budget Gaming Keyboard.
