Arbiter Polar 65, A Keyboard With Hall Effect Magnetic Switches

Source: TweakTown Arbiter Polar 65, A Keyboard With Hall Effect Magnetic Switches

Insane Keystroke Posse

Move over linear switches, and mechanical switches head back to the shop because the Hall Effect has come to keyboards.  The Arbiter Polar 65 has hot swappable 36g linear Hall Effect switches from Fuji, with programmable actuation depths ranging from 0.1mm to 3.8mm.  As you might expect from the name, it is a 65% keyboard with dual-shot PBT keycaps and a CNC aluminium frame with plenty of per-key RGBs for you to toggle on and off.

TweakTown tried it out in games as well as actual work and loved every minute of it.  They would have liked to see Arbiter include height adjustment pm the Polar 65 and perhaps more comprehensive customization options in the app, but as far as typing goes this is a joy to work with.  It’s even 25% off it’s MSRP of $150 at the moment.

Arbiter Polar 65's adjustable magnetic switches are impressive, but the overall quality of the build and components makes this a buttery smooth keyboard.
