This is a very nice and solid board highly recommended thank Divinikey!
A great board for a beginner and beyond..
Out the gate, this has some weight to it for sure! I like how that makes it feel premium without the huge price tag. The features this are great for someone just getting into the hobby like myself. I feel this can grow with me as my skill set grows. The extra foam included that you don’t necessarily get in other DIYs is great! With that being said if you just throw switches and caps on, I do think you will be missing out on this boards full potential. A lot of early YT reviewers were very into the gasket design and how much flex the board had, but hated how pingy and hollow the board was. To remedy, the company included an extra foam layer in the case. While this seemed to have fix that issue, the extra layer causes some stiffness and you lose that good flex. Personally, I did the tempest mod on-top of the tape-break mod. You get to lose that extra foam layer, keep that desired flex, and still eliminate that harsh ping. I look forward to exploring the hobby more with this by my side and highly recommend for someone new to the hobby as well (Also, Gateron Black Ink V2s lubed in this sound GREATTT. Re-lube the stabs too.)
such a great fun build, and typing exp is great!
Great only after modding
The Q1 v1 has a LOT of metallic case ping where the top and bottom case resonate together with every press. Unless you like typing on a metal pole, I recommend modding. The sound is much more customizable/decent when you mod. Overall the board is quieter than my other board I have, which is great for use with tactiles.
Keyboard is absolutely great for the price but is pingy stock. However, the force break mod eliminated nearly all ping.
