Pretty decent keyboard so far. It has only been 1 day. I will update this review after some time.
One gripe I have that, no extra keycaps were shipped with this keyboard, for instance, I wanted to change the Win key to Mac key or even a blank one, there isn't one to do so. A small selection of some colored blank keys would be great too.

Initially, I would have given this keyboard a perfect score. The manufacturing quality is top-notch, and the typing experience is excellent. Additionally, the Alice layout is ideal for those who prefer a non-split keyboard.
However, as time has passed, I've noticed some drawbacks. Firstly, the lack of software for customization is a significant downside. Secondly, the keyboard does not come with a complete set of upper navigation keys(home, insert), and the control group is missing the right alt and application keys. Additionally, the Windows key has been moved to the middle, which takes some getting used to.
Although the FN key combo helps alleviate some of these problems, it doesn't solve all of them. The only way to address these issues would be to have software support, which, unfortunately, this keyboard lacks.
Additionally, I prefer raising the keyboards, but this causes wobbling since the keyboard doesn't lay flat in the front.
To sum up, I would like this keyboard much better if it came with a complete F row, standard full navigation and control row, and software support for customization.
The keyboard was bought on amazon.
I only wish it had different pcb options
I've been using this keyboard for work, and it's extremely silent compared to my blue/brown switches. My co workers don't notice that I'm typing during video calls. I thought I would have a hard time getting used to linear switches (compared to tactile blues and browns), but it only took around 1 week for me to get back to regular typing speed.
The split keyboard does make a small difference, but if you're getting this keyboard for ergonomics, then you'll be disappointed. If you're looking for a very quiet keyboard, I would recommend this. The only improvement would be to move the spacebar to under the "b" key, like the alice aluminum 75.
