Excellent keyboard with beautiful lighting. Could have been better if the keycaps were PBT.
I absolutely love this keyboard. I bought it simply for the size alone. I play a lot of FPS games and I tend to make large sweeping mouse movements and with a fullsize board, I tend to hit it far too often.
It's absolutely beautiful and feels amazing to type on. The layers are nice and fairly easy to use. The RGB lights are absolutely beautiful.
My two gripes are that it didn't come with a manual or braided cable.
Also, in the online manual, it shows an FN (function key) and a PN key.
The PN key is the MENU key. There is nothing to indicate that MENU=PN. There should at least be something printed on the side of the MENU key indicating it as the PN key.
Build Quality - 5

Accessory Quality - 3
I still give it a 5 star rating because once you figure out how to use it, it's an amazing keyboard.
This keyboard is pretty solid overall. My primary reason for buying it is so I could transport it around. I don't like using the mushy and oily school keyboards, and while I also have a Shine 5 and the Disco, those are rather difficult to carry around. The Poker fits in my backpack very well. The RGB LED's is also a plus if you are into backlighting, but you are also spending more money for the LED's. The Cherry Blue switches are as amazing as always. My primary complaint with the keyboard is the stock keycaps. They just didn't feel good to type on. Luckily, the Hana keycaps shipped from Massdrop sometime after I received the keyboard, so I only had to deal with the stock keycaps for about 2 weeks max. I like typing on the Ducky stock keycaps, but the ones on this Poker RGB don't feel that great. Otherwise, the keyboard doesn't come with a manual, so it oculd be difficult to set up the LED's. Just look for some Youtube videos or read about them on Reddit. I really like the Vortex mode.
Pros: Default Keycaps are way better than stock Poker3 nonRGB keycaps. Metal case still the default.
Cons: No Manual and no indication on how to use the RGB lighting or programming. Stock caps are nice but should have been Vortex own PBT/POM doubleshots
Seriously no manual in the box and no easy way to find it online.
Great keyboard with solid build quality and key feeling.
If you want to use 60% size keyboard with cherry and rgb, this is it.
However, programming and setting rgb is bit complex since you need to look up manual online.
Keyboard feels absolutely amazing, but the programming is not very good. For example basic functions do not work in the default layer.
I would not recommend this keyboard if you want to use it in the default layer (other layers ruin your color preset).
