its a nice kit, the spacebar had foam in the way so I had to cut the foam away to get the spacebar stablizers and the friend I had built a board for his caps to enter row stop working randomly after maybe a week or more use

Great budget board

This is a great board for its price. A board this cheap with this layout and south facing led aren’t common and this one does it great. Sure it’s pretty stiff and won’t be as good as other premium 98%, but for its low price point with all the features it has I think it’s a safe choice. Easy to open if you want to mod it and ok stock stabs. Would recommend to someone on a budget looking for something with almost no negative. The only one thing I would’ve liked would be qmk support but it’s fine without

Defective PCB

The entire 4th row up to the numpad 0 key were all dead sockets. Tried to get a refund so I followed Epomaker's procedures and uploaded a YouTube video of me testing the PCB since that's what they requested. About 50 days later now, no form of communication and definitely didn't get a refund. Thank god this kit was cheap compared to most boards in the keyboard hobby. It was really unfortunate that my product was broken; maybe I read just unlucky but Epomaker has definitely disappointed me with their return/refund process. Absolutely predatory.
