Good keyboard to mod if you want to do some soldering. The ENTR has a kind of tinny sound compared to my other keyboards so I decided to take it apart and put it back together just a little better. It’s easy to disassemble. Just unscrew all the screws and the plate/pcb comes rigger out. Here’s what I did:
  1. Desolder the switches. This is the most difficult part, but I just did a few at a time.
  2. Install Mil-max sockets. They’re easy to solder in and now you have a hotswappable board.
  3. Cut some thin foam for the bottom of the case. There’s not much room, so you could do a tape mod instead.
  4. Add foam between the plate and pcb. You can either buy some pre cut foam on Amazon that you need to trim up for the screw holes, etc. or I just bought a sheet of adhesive backed foam at the craft store and cut it into strips.
  5. Paint the plastic top piece and add a coat of acrylic. That really helps with the plastic feeling.
  6. Replace and lube the stabs.
  7. Add lubed switches and a nice keycap set.
The Mil-Max sockets added a little expense, but having a hotswappable board is really nice. With the foam it’s a really solid board now and sounds really good.

Given research into what switches are available and how they may reflect your tastes, this offer would be a good entry into drop branded boards even though they have a limited feature set compared to their other options. $60 is a more reasonable price in my opinion for a soldered switch tkl than the non-refurb $90.
