Are there any plans to fix the problem with the magnetic feet. This is the one reason I'm staying away, because they come off very easily while sliding and moving the board.
If you're buying a hacky keyboard where you can make it yourself. You can probably solve the issue by yourself too. If this issue is big for me I'll either swap out for stronger magnets or develop some long standing solution such as hinges or something.
This is a major complaint by a lot of people actually. And for $200 these things should really get resolved. Especially when you can buy hotswapable keyboards with decent quality that cost $40 total on Amazon.
Yea it's unprofessional and the issue shouldn't be there but I'm just saying that it's not a huge thing like it shouldn't be bad to fix it but still it's better if the issue wasn't there in the first place.
Whether this an issue or not depends on two things in my experience;
In my experience this is a non issue and can be easily be worked around. I wouldn't let this affect your decision to purchase.
- Your desk surface type and how it interacts with the rubber, my desk is a wood grain laminate with a near matt finish, i can dislodge the feet if I repeatedly slide the keyboard from side to side quickly.
- I have my keyboard feet provide some incline at the rear of the keyboard, this allows me to tuck about half of my little finger underneath each side and then I lift the keyboard when moving it across my desk, particularly if I want to put it under the monitor since the monitor has a raised stand. Even the lightest of lifts helps the keyboard slide across the desk without losing the feet.
The fact is I'm just not paying $200 when this problem exists. And it is a big problem for this high of a price of a keyboard. You can see many reviews and YouTubers complain about this. So this actually does affect my decision, so for now I'm sticking to the tecware phantom that's $40 with hotswappable switches and doesn't have this problem.
I move and slide my keyboard many many times while typing and gaming without paying attention that it has become second nature, so this will in fact be a huge problem for me and maybe not for you.
I got it mostly for the design. It's a clean design and look really nice. The bonus for me was I could update the firmware myself using c++ giving me full control over my keyboard.
