Absolutely amazing for the price
This keyboard kit is perfect for beginners who want to keep their first build < $100. Add on some budget switches from the shop (opted to go for Gateron Cap V2 Milky Browns for this one) and you got a solid entry board in your hands. Pros: 1) The plastic case is actually pretty sturdy compared to other kits I've experienced in the past (Ikki68, KBD67 Lite), especially considering those kits were about $70 more 2) It comes with installed screw-in stabilizers which were pretty good out of the box (there's some 205g0-type lube applied to where the wires meet the housings). If you wanted to lube/tune the stabilizers further, you can definitely still do that by "plugging the butt" with a lube syringe 3) The instructions were very clear (even troubleshooting) and the included keycap puller, switch puller, cable and screwdriver were a nice addition (again, for just $60) 4) Reset button is easily accessible and PCB comes with ESD protection (which is definitely a norm now but it's just crazy to me for a kit at this price) Cons: 1) The plate foam felt impossible to try to remove due to the steel plate, foam, and PCB being so stuck together. If you wanted to swap the stabilizers or take out the plate foam, good luck. This also prevented me from installing some PE foam into the board 2) The silicone base was very thick and to my ears, muted the sound too much. I found it best to remove it and use the tape mod instead in order to deepen the sound while not overly muting it Shout out to Divinikey support for helping me figure out my PCB woes. If you find your right windows/menu keys not working, try remapping it to a letter key first :) And one last recommendation for those building this board: if the spacebar sounds "off" or too loud to you, try removing the two tray mount screws above the spacebar. This, in my experience, drastically improved its sound.
I like the ease to remap keys but the layers are confusing and some layer key settings just don’t work
Good entry level
Works so good
