  • This is the first time I use a mechanical keyboard without a metal plate.
    Strengths:
    The PBT keycaps don't become shiny as quick as ABS counterparts.

    Its layout offers a good balance between functionality and portability.

    Drawbacks:
    It doesn't have a supporting metal plate below the keycaps, so that makes the keyboard unreasonably light.

    The non-plate feature and the thick PBT keycaps is a bad match with blue switches, as that muffles the enjoyable clicky sensation.Alternatively, it brings me an odd feel to press each key.

    The uncommon layout makes it really hard for alternative substituting keycaps.

    Conclusion:
    This keyboard doesn't really suit me.

  • I absolutely love this keyboard. The size is perfect and is exactly what I was looking for which is a compact keyboard. Oddly, it took a little getting used to when it came to typing on this thing (coming from a full-size Cherry Red keyboard) but once you get used to it, it's great.

    Pros:
    - Compact
    - Solid Construction
    - Relatively lightweight
    - Keycap texture (I have no idea what it is but it feels great!)

    Cons:
    - I kind of wish it had an extra USB port
    - USB cable is not a braided cable but you can always buy one
    - My X key was oddly switched with a K key. Not really to big of an issue honestly. But just saying it happened.

    Conclusion:
    If anyone is looking for a good looking tenkeyless keyboard, this is definitely really good. I had read some reviews of people saying they can feel the keyboard "flex" when they type since it is PBT but I don't feel any such flex. Even if I go out of my way to bottom out really hard, I can feel no flex in this keyboard.
