I will address the first issue that prospective buyers may be concerned
with, and that is the font on the keycaps. Honestly, the font looks worse
in pictures than it does in person. Over time, I came to develop a liking
for the eccentric font of the keycaps; it's definitely 'unique', at least.
You shouldn't be staring at your keyboard while you use it anyway, so a bad
font shouldn't make or break a keyboard for you.
Brown switches would be my first mechanical switch, and it definitely takes
some getting used to. For example, in FPS games, I would unconciously press
down W and then be surprised that I was moving forward for no reason, until
I realize a moment later that I was actually pressing W. Like you're not
exactly 'sure' that you pressed a button or not. You get used to the feeling after awhile though and are able to type and game normally.
I'm very happy with this board. The build quality was expected, as all reviews of the board on other sites/videos praise everything except the font of the keycaps. Also, since they're double-shot PBT, the lighting doesn't shine through the caps as well as ABS, but it's better than I thought it would be. Most of the letters are great looking, but keys like Alt, Win, Ctrl, show some unevenness. Despite all of the lighting/font flaws, the quality of the keycaps and board more than make up for it.
The board itself is heavy, solid, and good-looking. The cord is thick and braided. The macro programming is more than enough for me and the lighting modes/script customization is great as well.
It came with the keycap tool (which despite being a quality material, is a little harsh on the keycaps. It also doubles as a bottle opener.), an extra keycap from Mechanical Keyboards with their logo on it, and a short manual explaining the functions of the keyboard.
The shipping was free and extremely fast, thanks MK
