Don't Get if you use a Mac

I use this on both my Mac and my Windows PC. It connects and works perfectly via bluetooth on my Windows PC. On my work Mac it drops connection constantly, and cannot reconnect until I reboot the keyboard, or connect it to a charger. When it drops it usually sticky keys the last key I hit. My friend has the same issue. You see the issue unanswered all over reddit as well. Support was unhelpful in the matter. I do not know what to do.

Worth the money

Bought it about 50 days ago took about a month or less to get here and it’s a solid barebones and I would recommend it to everyone as it has Bluetooth up to three devices. It doesn’t have a power switch so you have to press 2 keys for a few for it to turn on but then you don’t have to turn it off until the end of the session or day because it has a power mode that it sleeps in as I’ve found. So I recommend this to anyone who is building a keyboard.

Dead on Arrival

Unfortunately, the keyboard kit arrived with a dead PCB, but it seemed like it would be too much of a hassle to return given Epomaker want unboxing videos per their return terms and I only found out it was dead after building the keyboard in full and trying to turn it on to no success.
