NuPhy Field75 review: wireless keyboard is wondrously tactile

The delightful NuPhy Field75 is somehow both bulky and compact.

Our Verdict

It looks different to almost every other keyboard out there, but the NuPhy Field75 makes the absolute most of its compact form factor, getting inventive with key layout and overall design. The switches are firm but responsive, the battery life is great, and it's really comfortable to use too. A real winning type.

For

  • Very sturdy
  • Comfortable typing experience
  • Innovative, striking design

Against

  • Cheaper options available for the features set
  • Some unorthodox key placement

Why you can trust Creative Bloq Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

The NuPhy Field75 comes from one of the most interesting new upstarts on the chaotic battlefield that is computer accessories. NuPhy focuses squarely on keyobards, and we've already tested – and been impressed by – the Mac-focused Air60

So how would NuPhy fare within the maybe less refined, but just as discerning, crowd of mechanical gaming keyboard fans? It sent me the Field75 to help me find out, and over the course of a month, I used it for work, creative hobbies, and of course gaming.
