This is one of the brightest keyboard I have. At first I cannot get it to work. I have tried everything. I reached out for help. With all the troubleshooting, we finally got it to work. Now I can customized my keyboard. I have a milky yellow switch and black box ink v2. It sounded really close to my Odin keyboard. In one of the picture, I added the footing because it was too flat for me. Otherwise, this is a good keyboard is really good.
