It's a Thicc Boi
I have an original low profile massdrop ctrl, and honestly I was not liking it anymore. I didn't like the low profile, the silver color seemed dated; just all-around not satisfied. When I saw these colored cases were being sold my interest was peaked, but I wasn't a fan of the green, blue or purple. But when that bronze color dropped.... Oh man I was sold. I already loved the look of the Space Race alt keyboard, so to have that in a TKL? Yes please! I bought the Susuwatari keycaps and new stabilizers (because... you know...) and this thing is Awesome. It's heavy too; with case foam (from StupidFish) it comes in at 4 pounds. One downside that I must address, even with case foam, there is still a bad case ping. I haven't done too much research on it, but maybe it has to do with the integrated top plate (making it very rigid) Minus 1 star for case ping. Otherwise I love the color, and the upgrade from low to high profile.

Ahoy - fellow CTRL user here; if you're using Halo switches, the ping is coming from the springs. They love to sing the song of their people. They can be quieted down a bit by coating them (that is, the springs) in oil - or by replacing the springs and *then* coating *those* with oil. I actually like Halo springs, but I only use them in linears now because they're so ping-y.

I am using Kailh Speed Silver switches, though it is probably still the springs. Thanks for the tip! That will be a project for a rainy day.

Its pretty good, solid build, gets dirty easily
Good if you want to change the color of your board, bit pricier than spray painting your existing one.

Premium and hefty aluminum case
Very heavy and feels really good. Also sounds great to type on. I got it in lilac and the color of the case is much prettier and vibrant in person.

Pretty good
The Anodization on my Lilac colored case was consistent throughout. I kinda dont know what those 4 metal coins that are included for the led diffuser but either way its a nice case. My friend who I built it for liked it a lot

Great color
So far this is a much improvement to the grey low profile one. Waited a while to see if maybe some better colors would be released but when I saw the mito Pegaso set I decided to take the chance and pair it with the Arctic color way. So far I love it. I definitely brought it expecting it to be a darker blue than the picture and it is which is perfect. If you have a drop ctrl already this is definitely a good upgrade.....if you don’t mind the price.

Quality Blue Case!
So I was hesitant to get this, as I wasn't sure about the color or the price. Overall the build quality and the weight is what I'd expect at this price point. The light diffusion is the same as my Drop Alt, so I knew what to expect. This is my first high profile build which took some getting used to when placing my switches in. Will need to add a bit of sound damping to take out the pinging when pressing keys in the center of the case, but that is my preference and not really a defect. The blue color is slightly darker than it appears online which I greatly appreciated. I really like this, and it has definitely made it's way to the top of my rotation. I would have given this 4 1/2 stars if possible, as the price was still a sticking point for me.
