  • I love the feel and footprint of this keyboard. Wireless is handy, but I never use it. The 75% layout is nice to squeeze in a few more quality of life keys. I use this as a "side keyboard" for quick work on machines, rather than as my main keyboard, due to its compact size. The only issue I have, which is significant given the price, is the lack of stabilizers on some of the larger keys. The right-hand SHIFT key, and the CAPS LOCK and TAB keys are the worst offenders, these babies ROCK side to side big time, which is obviously wearing away the stems quicker than one would like and can feel really off-putting when you don't catch those keys right in the center. BACKSPACE, ENTER, and the left-hand SHIFT keys are a LITTLE better with the rocking, but they still rock a bit and feel really crunchy.

  • I like the layout, but wireless not working. Switches are not smoother.

  • Solid KB for the price, considering it comes with BT and extra keycaps.
    If you like this layout and want wireless this is probably your best option.

    The bluetooth works flawlessly, I cant detect any input lag. I also tested alongside a logitech g pro wireless mouse to see if i could get any interference between the two. there was nothing. I'm alright with it needing AAA bats for power, internal battery's degrade overtime and it would suck to have to open this thing up to replace it eventually.

    I like everything about the kb but there are some concerns I have with the build quality.
    There are some gaps between keys/rows which are larger than others. Not really noticeable at first glance but if you're looking over the kb you notice them. They dont impede typing but kinda wish they weren't there at all. Only reason this is getting a 4/5. The other thing I don't like is how the pairing button takes the place of the print screen. Not a big deal but I game a lot and take screen shots. So you either have to rebind the screen shot button in the game you're playing or use a different layer on the kb.

    I got mine with cherry mx blacks. I have an original vortex race 1 with blacks and they were kinda scratchy so I was worried about that here. They are surprisingly smooth and feel really nice.

    The DSA profile keycaps are whatever for gaming. I really like them aesthetically, some reviews I read/watched said they weren't that great for gaming and while that might be the case I dont have an issue using them. It did take a few hours to get used to them though. If you are already using this profile then you wont have any issues obviously.

    I saw people complaining about the incline, im a fan. Most of my other kbs have an incline this extreme (i dont think it is) use a wrist rest and you are all good. The kb is much more heavy then it looks, takes effort to slide around on my desk and the rubber feet do a good job keeping it in place.

    Overall this is a solid kb to get if you're not interested in building your own and want this layout with wireless.

  • This was my first foray into nicer mechanical keyboards (I used a Logitech G710 for many years) and it has been great. I had a QC issue with some keycaps at first, but MK.com staff were very helpful. After that was fixed, the keyboard has been a dream.

    I got this one for a few reasons. I wanted the Bluetooth so that I could quickly detach it from my desktop set up (detachable USB-C too!) and take it with me to use with my laptop elsewhere. As a programmer, I like the 75% layout for the easy arrow, home, and end keys plus I find hitting a real function key with a single keystroke fun.

    I could see how some people might not like the shape/slant of the board. It does have a slight incline and the front of the board closest to me as I sit at the computer is higher off the desk than with others I have used. I got a wrist wrest and now I think it is a perfect set up, but for me, that was pretty crucial as I am not the best hover hand typer (ENHANCE compact wrist rest on Amazon is perfect size after MUCH looking and debating).

    Bottom line great board if you like the form factor and shape (maybe with a wrist rest) and the Bluetooth has been a dream.

  • Just got the keyboard today. Shipping took a while (north CA): I placed the order on June 28 and got it July 6, but to be fair there's Independence Day, and it arrived 3 days earlier than FedEx expected date.

    This is my first mechanical keyboard and so far I'm very satisfied. The keyboard came fully assembled, so it's very friendly for beginners like me. The alternative key caps are also included. However there is no key cap puller.

    I got Cherry MX Red switches, and it's a bit on the soft side for me: it's too "smooth" and I'd probably prefer a stiffer / clickier one.

    The keys are non-ergonomic, and there's no bump on F and J keys, which is perfect for me because I use the Dvorak layout, but it might not be desirable for most people.

  • Love the board; great layout, bluetooth makes for a clean desktop. Only thing to note is that the stock images of this board show top and side printed legends (ex: the F1-F6 keys also have media legends on the fronts of the keycaps), but the board does not ship with those keycaps. That was one of the reasons I chose this board and now I need to hunt them down separately, just a heads up for future buyers.
