  • This is my 21st high-end mechanical, for use w my MacBook Pro working at home (I use a cheaper mechanical at the office on the Win machines there). Ordered it black case w brown switches.

    TL;DR - I love the typing experience, the errors in Mac key codes are annoying but I work around them.

    Out of the box, the sense is of weight, solid build and substantial quality. The aluminum is heavy and feels like it means business. Ain't no such thing as halfway crooks. This is the first time in a while I've used a TKL and still catch myself reaching for the 10-key, but I already appreciate the better centeredness of the mouse position. Obviously feel of the brown switch is infinitely better than typing on the membrane external KB I had used for years. Why didn't I do this years ago.

    It ain't perfect. Yes, the whole thing about the angle requires the feet, which slide around unless you also install the little rubber inserts. I wish at this price they'd have installed a more flexible, adjustable system for elevation like.well.almost every other keyboard at this price point.

    And as cited below, the Fn key shortcut for Launchpad doesn't work. Thankfully, "cmd-1" invokes Launchpad properly so bob's your uncle, but at $165 I'd expect them to get that straight. What else. The "breathing" mode for the backlight should have a speed adjustment - especially at this price point.

    A plus - I really like the keycaps and the way the font and positioning of legends are placed. But this is my 1st MK with backlighting, so installed a partial set of backlit PBTs I picked up on AMZN for $25 just for the light show. The font isn't as nice, but hey shiny objects!

    At the end of the day, however, I bought the KB for my work. And it delivers in spades. The feel is excellent. With the rubber feet inserts, it is heavy and solid and never moves unless I want it to. I type faster with greater accuracy and the overall feel to my fingers is top notch. It far surpasses the feel of the Romer Blue switch Logitech g613 I use at the office (although that KB, with both Bluetooth and Lightspeed, easily switches between my Win and Mac systems and has its own set of advantages).

    So for single purpose use here at the home office, I'm very very happy with the contribution to my workflow and work experience, and simply wish the already-observed shortcomings would be fixed by a firmware update or similar.
