The Dierya x KEMOVE DK61 Pro is a great wireless, mechanical keyboard. This compact board is an amazing choice for gamers, as it features customizable RGB backlighting, macro-programmable keys, and the Gateron Brown switches on our unit offer a very light experience. However, if you don't like the feel of the Brown switches, you can also get this keyboard with Red or Black switches, which are quiet and linear, or Blue switches, which are loud and clicky. Unfortunately, the companion software isn't very user-friendly, as setting macros and customizing the backlighting can be annoying to figure out.

This is a compact (60%) keyboard that takes up very little space on your desk.
The build quality is great. Its frame is made of solid plastic that shows no signs of flex. Keycaps are made of PBT plastic and feel good to touch, but there's a bit of wobble on some of the larger keys. The small support feet are made of rubber, which should prevent the board from sliding around as you use it.
The Dierya DK61's ergonomics are mediocre. There's no detachable wrist rest or incline settings, meaning you can't adjust the keyboard's high profile, which may cause strain and fatigue with use.
The Dierya DK61 has outstanding RGB backlighting. Each key is individually lit and there are presets available within the board itself, including one that responds to ambient sound as a result of the built-in mic. Unfortunately, customizing the layout of the lights within the software isn't user-friendly.
This wireless keyboard charges via a braided USB-C cable, and you can use it as it charges.
This keyboard has superb wireless versatility. It can only connect via Bluetooth as opposed to a proprietary receiver and it can be paired with up to three devices at once. On the other hand, we noticed that the Bluetooth connection can result in high levels of lag and seems to happen most when switching from wired to wireless.
The Dierya DK61 has a nice amount of extra features. All keys are macro-programmable, but only through the companion software, which is unintuitive and not user-friendly. It also features media hotkeys and a Windows Lock key.
Update 10/19/2020: We corrected a mistake in the spelling for the Gateron Optical Brown switches.
Our unit uses Gateron Brown switches, which offer nice tactile feedback and feel very light, as they don't need a lot of force to actuate and have a low pre-travel distance. That said, if you don't like the feeling of Brown switches, you can also get this keyboard with Gateron Blue (clicky), Black (linear), or Red (linear) switches.
This keyboard's typing quality is great. The PBT keycaps feel nice to the touch and the alpha-numeric keys are very stable, with only some of the other keys, such as "\" having a noticeable wobble. Despite its compact size, typing feels easy and natural, requiring little time to adjust. On the other hand, there are no incline settings or wrist rest and the high profile of the keyboard may fatigue to your wrists over time. Also, the Bluetooth connection can be unreliable at times, with some instances of lag being so bad it renders the keyboard unusable. This seems to happen most when switching from wired-use to wireless.
Our unit uses Gateron Brown switches, which have quiet tactile feedback and shouldn't disturb those around you. This keyboard is also available in Linear Red and Black switches, which are still quiet, and Blue switches, which are clicky and loud and aren't ideal for an office environment.
The Dierya DK61's companion software, KEMOVE Driver, offers great features. You can set macros and program the backlighting from the software, although neither of these experiences is very user-friendly. Unfortunately, the software isn't compatible with macOS or Linux.
The keyboard has excellent compatibility. It's partially compatible with macOS, iOS, and iPadOS, as the 'Pause Break' and 'Scroll Lock' buttons don't work. Also, the companion software, KEMOVE Driver, is only compatible with Windows.
