The iOne Scorpius M10 reminds us of the Xarmor U9, it is an entry level mechanical keyboard. Unlike the U9, the surfaces of the M10 are not rubberized.

It is powered under the hood by Cherry MX Blue key-switches which provide a tactile clicky feel. As you can see in the image, it comes standard with a USB connector, but the package includes a USB-to-PS/2 adapter that will provide full n-key rollover.

The layout is comfy to type on, and we have no complaints. To be honest, that’s kind of the problem with the M10, it’s not very impressive. The most impressive feature of the keyboard is the fact that it uses Cherry MX Blue key-switch.

It has no USB hub or audio jacks like many of its competitors, and the design doesn’t pop out as especially sturdy or creative. It looks like a standard keyboard, and it functions as one. To be fair, does it need to be more than that?

Well, considering that you can get a iOne U9 Plus or Adesso MKB-135B for similar prices, it concerns us. Right now, the Scorpius M10 is available for a super affordable price, and it looks like it’s been disappearing from online retailers. So if you must have this model, hurry and snatch it up before it completely disappears. Otherwise, take a look at the alternatives mentioned above, and you’ll be set.
