Best of my current keyboards
I love the build quality of this keyboard, and the typing experience (with the Brown switches) is also very good. Overall, it was a very good purchase.

A no-nonsense, solid board
I bought this keyboard because I was tired of trying to go to work using my 60% board. I needed a full-size board that looked good and felt comfortable to type on all day - no flashy gamer LEDS with see-through case and super-ultra-futuristic gamer legend font. This is a solid keyboard, and the first thing I noticed was the weight - it must weigh about 3lbs. This is due to the fact that the switches are plate-mounted, and the plate (I believe) is stainless steel. Everything about the board is well-made. The plate makes sure there is no wobble in any of the switches, and the stabilizers feel great too - the spacebar is satisfying and even to press from any point on its surface. I got cherry red switches, and although there's nothing wrong with them (easy to press, quiet for a work environment), I wish there was a bigger selection of switches. I would've been willing to pay more if there were options from Gateron or Kailh, being that the PCB is not hot-swappable (you must desolder the switches if you want to change them). The acoustics of the reds in the board are good and 'thocky' due to the solid construction, but a little dampening material inside the case would go a long way. The keycaps - which are one of the big reasons I bought the board, are good quality. They are pretty much the minimum for what I think anyone should buy as far as keycaps go - PBT (textured surface, not smooth like ABS), and dye-subbed. They include a few extras, but I really wish they had included an escape key without their ugly-ass logo on it. Next to the board in the picture below are all of the extra keys that come with the board. There are no Mac keys.

I went for the 9009 look and am pretty happy with it - looks just like it did in the pictures. And to correct someone else's review, these keycaps are OEM profile, not SA. One thing that did bother me was that the stepped caps lock key they included as a bonus didn't fit. You can see in the pictures below that the stem molding doesn't line up, and if you try to force into its spot, it doesn't fit at all. I really like stepped keys so I was elated at first and then disappointed.

The keyboard comes with adjustable angle feet, which seem to becoming rare on 'custom' keyboards these days, but if you're typing all day they should be a requirement. Take care of your wrists/hands!

The connection to the keyboard is usb-c (which I also think should be a requirement nowadays, no one likes micro usb) The port on the board is made so that the cord that comes with the board fits perfectly, keep this in mind if you want to use your own cable. It has to be thin enough to fit into the space. I think that the cable that comes with the board is okay, but is a little too heavy-gauge for my taste.

The instruction manual that came with the board was in Chinese, and unfortunately, I do not know it. However, there are in fact uses for the FN key, and apparently you can create macros without a driver (although I haven't figured that out yet). Here is a picture from Akko's website showing what the FN key does when used in combination with the function keys:

So: FN+F1 = opens "Files" FN+F2 = opens your default email FN+F3 = search FN+F4 = opens new tab of default browser FN+F5 = opens default music player FN+F6 = play/pause FN+F7 = previous track FN+F8 = next track Also I'd like to mention that I love the dedicated keys for volume and opening the calculator. Using layers to get to these functions on my 60 and 65% boards does get annoying sometimes. Overall, this is a great board for the price, even though I mostly bought it for the caps. I love typing on it and it has gotten compliments. My biggest gripes as a keyboard nerd is that it isn't modular enough. I wish it was easier to change the switches and mess around under the hood (the case is hard to take apart) and that they didn't use their logo at all on any part of the keyboard where it is visible, because it really is ugly as all hell and I'm tired of looking at it. I think this keyboard would be best used by someone who is used to using a full size board to its full potential, like an office worker - it really shines in those type of settings. I would still not recommend this to someone for gaming. I have used this a lot in both settings and still much prefer my 60% board for gaming, and this one to keep at work. As an extra note that you might want to be aware of, this company apparently illegally uses trademarks - they copy the work of other companies. As a consumer, I don't really care all that much, but you might. TLDR: Hefty board, solid construction, looks pretty, feels great to type on, works like it's supposed to. Recommended for office work settings, not gaming.

Excellent Keyboard
This is a really solid keyboard. Software works great and the typing experience is wonderful. The keyboard has some nice weight and heft to it that makes it seem as if its a more expensive KB than it actually is. Love it!

Very good keyboard, excellent price.
Definitely one of the better experiences with drop products. The keyboard feels very sturdy and has a all around quality. The SA PBT is a littler different from what I'm used to, but is still very comfortable. I got MX Blues, but I think Browns might have been a better choice. Came with a matching USB-C cable, and plenty of customizable keycaps.
