Although this keyboard took quite some time to arrive, I was very happy to finally receive it. I recently got into mechanical keyboards three months ago and something about this one really drew me to it. But it because it took so long to get here, I ended up getting a RK68 in the mean time on amazon, something more affordable and hotswap capable. So, I was anticipating this keyboard quite a bit during the shipping time, but to my surprise (and maybe not enough research on my own) when the board finally showed up, I found out it is non hotswap. Meaning you can't pull the switches out (EASILY) and replace them. I don't have enough experience with cherry mx's but in comparison to my RK68 with akko roses I swapped, it's less pleasing to my ears. Which is a shame because I was truly hoping to switch the switches. I guess I will just have to learn soldering to make that happen. Regardless, I do like the keyboard and I think the overall typing experience feels great, and the sound is decent. The keycap profile feels very nice, and cuts down on key travel although, they do feel a little slippery. My hands can get a little sweaty while p[laying games, so I have yet to experience that but it might be a turn off for me should it cause me to make some errors in game. Something I truly enjoy about this keyboard is the weight though. Man it feels pretty heavy, which is a good thing because you don't feel like it's going to move on you. The overall height of the board is quite tall, which there are two sets of legs on the back which can help elevate the back making it easier on the wrists. Just something to keep in mind. I haven't fully taken this keyboard apart yet, but I imagine due too not being hotswap it mayu be slightly more challenging. The reason I would consider taking it apart is to add some foam or silicon to further dampen they keyboard and its percussiveness. Though its not necessarily loud stock, I would like to give it that little bit of dampening personally for a more quite typing experience . The stabilizers feel fine, but some tuning with the holee mod might help. Overall, I will give this keyboard four out of five stars or about 7.5 out of 10 on a general rating. If you're looking for a keyboard that sounds and feels overall good out of the box, and don't mind spending one benjamin in the process, then this is for you. For someone looking to perhaps mod and and swap the switches because they're not a fan of Cherry mx, and you have a tighter budget, then this is not for you. Lastly, even though I have accepted this board is non hotswap, I think the product page should indicate that.
