Loving it, working well, split bar is a really good feature for layering. The configuration was a pain, specially with no support for Linux, but I was able to configure layers almost fully for my needs.
I got the keyboard and it came with the plate and PCB as listed. All I had to do was put in the switches and the key caps. Once I had done that I quickly found out that the keyboard wouldn’t always give an output when I pressed one of the keys. I did some further testing because I thought it might have been a defect in the switches but I soon found out that wasn’t the case.
Now to be completely clear, I did no modding to the keyboard whatsoever, the plate was on nice and tight so that the switches could reach the PCB and the RGB worked quite fine, all it was, was that every time I would press a key there was a chance of it just not registering.
One other issue I have and I don’t think it’s really about the product itself but it took 2 entire months for the order to arrive, which is surprisingly long for an American company as I live very close.
In all, I spent $80 - $90 on this product that doesn’t work properly. And I won’t even try to get a refund as I know it’ll be near to impossible and just not worth the trouble.
And as one last message, this very well could have been just a manufacturing issue and could just be a problem for me but it really sucks either way, especially as this was my first build.
Spent $80 - $90 on a keyboard for it only to come after 2 months and it not work as intended.

epic beginner keyboard for someone who can't rlly buy keyboards
Overall it is very good. Everything about it is fine and so are the stabilisers but hey are just a bit wobbly. A bit of foam would have been nice to be shipped with too.
