First Aluminium Mech Keyboard
I have since had 5 keyboards and none of them are aluminum. I find that the aluminum makes this keyboard sound weird and metallic. I don’t really like that sound. Premium aluminum boards are expensive and this board was a lot cheaper, but. I know why now.

My favorite keyboard, changing switches themselves is a fantastic feature
I looked for a while to find the perfect board. I think this is a solid board but probably not my lifetime board. Shortly after I bought this keyboard, I noticed the box keys I bought (the kaihl's), were too hard to depress. This caused my wrist to hurt quite quickly. I am now, thankfully, buying a set of Browns instead which will be much easier for me to use this keyboard and not have to buy another keyboard. One criticism: I do wish Drop made a split keyboard version of this keyboard.

First mechanical keyboard, lot's of praise with little minor gripes
This is my first mechanical keyboard and I figure why not go all out. It certainly is a lot more expensive than other keyboard's that I saw, but I was drawn by the clean aesthetics of it. Build quality of the keyboard is fantastic, really nice weight to it and it feels like a premium product. I bought the Halo Clear keycaps which were really tiring on my hands when typing. I eventually bought new switches and replaced the letters and they feel much better. Some cons (that aren't dealbreakers for me):
  • I agree with a lot of other people, the keyboard stabilizer gives off a significantly different feel than pressing the other keys. I've looked into other stabilizers but not experienced enough to replace it on my own yet.
  • Taking out the switches at first were brutal. I suppose this goes into build quality, but it felt like I was about to break the included tweezers when trying to take out the switch (they eventually do come out and subsequent attempts are a lot easier)
  • There seems to be a high-pitched whine when shifting to certain colors on the keyboard that I hear when using headphones; this also happens when I activate the "pulse" feature. I use the white, static lighting mode which doesn't emit a high pitch for whatever reason.
  • The keyboard feet are magnetic which a lot of people have voiced issues about. I never move my keyboard so this is not an issue for me, but I can see people who move their keyboard a lot be concerned about losing the feet since they come off if you nudge them in the right spot.
Overall, despite the cons, I'm very happy with my purchase and I don't feel a need to ever get a new mechanical keyboard.

Good
So far I really like this keyboard as it is sleek and the RGB options are rather nice as well as the surrounding led strip. but due to how close the less is to the plastic around the edge they don't have enough space to diffuse so they seem a bit harsh in some places and a bit dim in others. the keyboard came with quite the horrendous STABS but I managed to get them to a usable state with a lot of tuning

Programmer dream
I bought this keyboard over other cheaper alternatives bc it supported QMK. With a little bit of coding I made this keyboard work just as I wanted with macros and tap-dance functionality. I can now type almost any symbol used in programming without modifiers (w/o SHIFT). Also, USB passthrough is great if you're using Yubikey for your work. So if you need a keyboard for coding and like to optimize your workflow and environment then with this the sky is your limit.

Very nice piece of kit.
I got this keyboard with the MX Browns, as I'm not a fan of overly noisy keys. This is my first mechanical keyboard, but I really like the look and feel of the keys. The different light configurations are very nice. The only thing I can complain about it the lack of an option to get a UK layout & keycaps included. Otherwise lovely keyboard
