I wanted a White switch (quiet Browns), TKL, PBT or high quality keys and the White and Blue Olivette caps.
The switches are ok, it is TKL, the feel of the caps are better than normal ABS. Unfortunately the color of the caps is not what I bought. They color is more like link except the lettering is very dark blue.
I called Mechanical Keyboard and sent pictures hoping that this was just a shipping mistake. They told me that the reference picture was taken with better lighting.
If you havent used Matias before then be aware that they do wobble significantly. You will notice the difference. On the positive side they are quiet enough for the office.
The keyboard case is snap fit, twists a bit, not very sturdy or solid feeling. Usb cable slips out of the guide whenever you move it. Vertical press/release sound is damped, but the keys wobble so much they make a terrible racket on their own. The wobble means that these are not "quiet" click at all, more like "rattle" click. If they keycap profile was lower, maybe the wobble wouldn't be so horrible. I'd return this if I didn't have to pay international shipping, import tax/fees, and restocking fee (basically the cost of this keyboard). Final impression: this keyboard is loud, poorly constructed, and the keys wobble all over the place. I can't belive what a piece of garbage it is, sold as a premum product. In this case the emperor really does have no clothes.
This keyboard is very well-built and the Olivette keycaps on this one are very easy to read. The Matias Quiet Click keys are excellent and have good feedback but are still quiet enough for using at the office.
