    Awesome keyboard kit

    This is my first keyboard kit. It came with the FOAM under the PCB. I ordered the wireless version.
    With AKKO lavendar switches, it feels really good and sounds very clocky. I like it.

    Thanks for the service epomaker.

    Horrible for modding, only compelling value is its iffy wireless and a "clonky" sound profile.

    I got this kit as a way to make a Mac-style keyboard for my sysadmin step-father as an introduction into the rabbit hole of custom keyboards. While the end result turned out pretty nice, the effort that was needed really wasn't, for two large reasons:

    The top half of the case is mounted by clips to the bottom half, and clips might very well be the most anti-DIY feature in any sort of product, even outside of keyboards, short of putting the whole thing in a solid concrete block. Unfortunately in the process of closing it, the clip on the front-right snapped and now that corner sticks up a bit. The other big issue I encountered was that for seemingly no reason, the punchouts for the stabilizers were extremely low tolerance, and I had to exert way more force to take out and put in stabilizers than I have for basically nothing else in keyboards so far. I could forgive these things if the case was actually mildly filled with foam (which maybe is a liability issue due to there being a battery) and the stock stabilizers were lubed in a way that actually contributes to making them less rattly instead of just putting a dab on the north and south face of the stabilizer housing.

    The final product isn't my ideal noise, but I can see the "clonky" sound being appreciated by some people. There are better values at this price range, and some for cheaper that only sacrifice the wireless that I pretty much don't trust on anything that isn't Logitech. If there were a revision of this kit that was more like the tray-mount style GK61/GK68 or literally anything that uses only screws that are easily accessible, then I would be way more convinced to use this in the future.

    Good for the price

    My budget build has turned out really well and I could not be happier. My only gripe is with the the stabs and how you open the case, clips you can only open with a card is not fun. Overall though really good for the price.
