  • I have had this keyboard now for a few weeks and have been using it as my daily driver. It should also be noted that I have used Cherry switches before on the Cherry G84 series of keyboards so knew going in what I was getting into with the switches. I'm coming off of a HHKB Pro JP as my daily driver.

    Layout is near perfect. I personally would have preferred the left hand side bottom row ctrl and alt keys have been 1U keys so one more key could have been included instead of the current 3 keys. Having come off a HHKB Pro JP I have gotten used to a small space bar so another thing I would have preferred would have been to replace the both space bars with two 1.5U keys for more flexibility in programming the keyboard.

    Program ability of the keyboard is, I feel the week point of the keyboard. While what it has will get the job done the reserved keys (the ones you can't change) leave much to be desired. Due to these reserved keys you can't layout the keyboard to use the HHKB Pro function layer which many find to be a near perfect secondary layer. While the on keyboard programing does work it leaves much to be desired. I personally prefer the ability to flash the keyboard with custom layouts because you get much more flexibility. I really wish keyboard vendors would just adopt the open source keyboard roms or at least make them compatible because they are much more functional and vastly more configurable.

    The switches as implemented in this keyboard work better than the way they are implemented on the Cherry G84 boards. While they are not perfect they are good enough to use this board as my daily driver or at least put it in my rotation.

  • The layout is amazing on this board, the color choice is cool too, with the orange highlights, and the ability to remap the entire thing is excellent. This size is great as well. It's really a wonderful board. EXCEPT the switches are very bad. I have no idea how these switches ever got approval to leave the lab. These are new switches to me, never experienced them before, the Cherry ML. I looked it up and there are zero other boards on this entire site, or hardly anywhere else that use these switches. And I know why. Unless you press these switches dead center, directly in the middle, the key will not go down. It just sticks in place. It's an exercise in frustration typing on this board, since so many keypresses just do not go down and are missed. If they didn't have this issue, I would absolutely LOVE this board, since the tactile feeling of the switch is excellent, and close to my favorite ever switch: Cherry MX Clear. Ah well. It was a good try by Mistel, and hopefully in the future they will swap these switches out.

  • I absolutely love this keyboard. The split key design is exactly what I was looking for, the build quality is fantastic, the USB cords are braided and seem durable. The Cherry ML switches may be a negative for some people who prefer the full profile switches, but I was really interested in trying them out. I think some people might not like the feel of the Cherry ML switches, but for me it was a non-issue. Visually the keyboard looks clean and simple. The legend on the keycaps are clearly legible. The packaging the keyboard came in was fantastic as well and was a great unboxing experience. Mechanicalkeyboards.com also delivered exactly when they said they would.

    I absolutely love this keyboard.
