  • Good keyboard. Only complaint is that the spacebar switch starts squeaking after typing a little bit. Other than that, its a well built keyboard

  • Very nice keyboard. The only complaint i have about it, is that the switch on the space bar isn't that smooth and squeaks sometimes,

  • What a fantastic keyboard. I have this same keyb with clears and it pales in comparison to this. The greens are so satisfying to type on.

    If you have a private office I'd definitely recommend greens over any other mx switch. They're not terribly loud, certainly quieter than my model m, but the stiff action makes the whole package desirable.

    Also kudos to Joel @ MK. I had originally ordered and then becomes frustrated with a preorder for a Pok3r RGB w/ browns (bleh). He was able to quickly change my order to an in-stock Pok3r with greens and get it shipped out same day. He refunded the difference immediately. Top notch!

    Thank you for the included keycap puller, I've already switched to a zebra wood 60% case and some retro pbt caps.

  • The folks at mechanicalkeyboards.com impressed me with my order for the Pok3r Black PBT with Chery MX Greens. I had a shipping issue (that wasn't their fault) and they went above and beyond to help me resolve it.

    The keyboard was packaged great and I already love it. I'm so glad I went with the Green switches instead of the Blues. I'm not a particularly heavy typist, but the switches feel great while typing and they make my ears happy. The heavy actuation helps me not bottom out.

    I love the keyboard, I love the switches, and I love the customer service at mk.com.

  • I have two of these. I have this one as well as as LED backlit ABS model. The PBT keys are great. What I really like about this keyboard is the aluminum case. It's built like a tank and feels really good to type on. No flex at all. Just a really solid feel. I love the 60% but I wish I could get a full size also.

  • Amazing feeling switches & just an overall great typing & gaming experience.

  • I love this little keyboard! It's my first mechanical, and now I definitely want another one for at work.

    Pros:

    Programmable, so all my required functions are close at hand.
    Easy to transport.
    Very sturdy build quality (heavy!).
    Cherry MX clears feel great to type on.

    Cons:

    Mine was missing the 'Fn' keycap (has an extra 'Ctrl' keycap there instead).
    The legends are wearing off of the PBT keycaps after only two weeks of use.
    Backspace feels loose and makes a metallic clacking/pinging sound.
    Sometimes it doesn't work when my PC wakes from sleep, so I have to unplug it and plug it back in.

    The reason I rate it a 4 is because of my experience with Vortex' customer service in trying to get an 'Fn' keycap. In short, they did not offer to send a replacement, and were inconsistent in responding to my support inquiry.

  • One of the best keyboards I've used, very small so good for desk space.

  • Love at first click!
    I bought the matias v60 and returned it. Bought the pok3r backlit version(with abs keycaps) and returned and finally bought this.
    It was love at first click. The pbt keys make way lesser noise than its counterpart abs. Cherry mx blue nothing more to say. They are just amazing to type in and I love the clicky sound.
    The construction is pretty solid. Love the form factor too. Don't be fooled by its size, its a pretty solid and heavy keyboard. The arrows are in the right place for me. I still haven't played around with the programming aspect yet because I just received.
    But anyone who likes cherry mx blue and wants to try the 60% keyboard. Pok3r is the way to go.
    I just love this keyboard. My keyboard search is finally over.

  • I love this keyboard. It's currently my daily diver. There's plently of reviews online so I wont be going in depth on why I like it but the only con is that the keycaps that come with it are laser etched and will wear out over time.

  • Just got my board in the mail! It arrived quickly and well packaged in perfect condition. This keyboard is incredible. If you haven't ever typed on clears then you're in for a real treat, if you have then you know what to look forward to. This keyboard is very high quality, great looking, and easy to use. The aluminum case has a very nice weight to it and keeps to board firmly planted to the desk surface. Can't recommend this board enough. Get one!

    Short version

    VERY well built
    PBT Stock caps
    Price is amazing for Aluminum case with PBT caps


    Only real cons that exist are

    Does not include PS/2 Adapter
    Lettering is not doubleshot so will eventually fade on Keycaps

  • A definitive and solid keyboard

    it's a tiny keyboard with a lot packed into it.

  • First mechanical, but been using red's frequently. Purchased a switch tester and came down between black and clear. I love linear which made me take it over clears, but i am positive i will be buying the clear with white caps soon. Build quality is great. Metal case is strong and sturdy. Very heavy for a 60%. Rubber feet are good. It can slide a little on my tabletop surface if i really try but while typing or bumping it, no way. Solid board especially if you are a traveler.

  • My POK3R shipped rather quickly, the keyboard itself is incredible. Outstanding build quality, the keyboard is extremely heavy and robust for its size. The keycaps are solid and well-made, but the stem of each keycap can be seen in certain levels of light. Overall, the keyboard is fantastic.
