Vissles recently sent me their new LP85 keyboard to review, and I've spent a few weeks giving the keyboard a go.

I have already reviewed the V84 mechanical keyboard from Vissles just a few months ago and that keyboard has been my daily driver ever since. I was therefore very interested in testing out this new product.

The Vissles LP85 is a low profile keyboard that is only 12mm thick. It has an aluminium chassis that holds 85 optical keys.

What are optical keys? Instead of the usual mechanical switches that make a physical connection, optical switches break a beam of infrared light to activate the key press. As there is no physical switch being clicked this means that optical switches last longer than mechanical ones.

It is available in black and white varieties with either a Windows or a Mac key layout.
