Good, but room to improve

The GK96X is a solid product, and the build quality is exactly what I was hoping for. I ordered the hotswap variety, and thankfully there is enough support on the board for it to be usable as a daily.
The RGBs are alright, but not stellar, they work for most moving lights, but trying to get a good two-tone blend can be difficult if that’s your goal.

My main complaint is the software. The software is difficult to use, and feels like bloatware. It seems a lot of attention was paid to allowing the user to design their own lighting scenes, but the actual control programming leaves a lot to be desired. For starters, the default key map is hardcoded, so all custom key maps must use layer 2, which is a pain for a traveling programmer.

Mostly this results in the suggestion for improvement of adding TMK or QMK support to the product.
