1STPLAYER Bullet Hunter MK6 Review

It has been a couple weeks since I have come back from working at a summer camp, where there would be a new set of kids coming and going every week. I learned a lot throughout this time at camp, as every week the kids would bring in different joys and struggles. Even though it was the same camp, it was a different experience every week. There was one week in particular that my mind always goes back to as it was simply just a joy to be a part of. In that week, I was able to see so much growth in all the children and just being able to give them a space to open up was so wonderful. The joy, pain, and growth of all the kids I interacted with left a mark on me personally. I would not go so far to say it was a life changing experience, but it did for sure change the way I see this world. I was always excited to see something new in the weeks to come, but unfortunately camp ended. I was kind of sad to go home to my regular life as a student until 1STPLAYER sent us their Bullet Hunter MK6 to test out. As a poor university student, I have never owned a mechanical keyboard, so as you might expect, I was excited to get this keyboard unboxed and to try it out. I was curious as to why people preferred mechanical keyboards over membrane keyboards, so this was my time to find out firsthand and to compare against other types of mechanical switches. Will the Bullet Hunter MK6 be able to stand up against other mechanical keyboards we have in inventory here at APH Networks? Let us keep reading to find out!
