Very nice budget TKL
This is the second budget high-profile TKL in my collection (after the Skyloong GK87). and this one has it's place as a daily driver for me. This TKL checks many "got to haves" for the modern budget keyboard (5-pin hotswap with south facing LEDs). I have mine fitted with the Everglide Crystal Violet Custom switches (stock) and AKKO Psittacus PBT keycaps. With any budget product, there are many tradeoffs. This includes:
  1. The stabilizers were very rough to work with at the beginning, particularly the space bar which got stuck. I haven't tried disassembling/cleaning/lubing it yet as after some repeated use it no longer sticks for me.
  2. The case uses both some very small screws and clips to hold the top shell in place. This doesn't seem be too hard to open up and get into. I was able to get into it without any issues but I am always worried about breaking the tabs whenever dismantling to access it.
  3. This keyboard uses USB-C but with some very odd choices for where the USB connections are (front and on both sides). The side ones are very deeply recessed and covered with a rubber cover. The front USB-C also has a very shallow but narrow recess meaning custom cables may have trouble connecting to it. I have been using it with the cheap rubber USB-C thus far.
  4. With any budget keyboard, only the manufacturer's software is supported. I have not been inclined to install/use it yet.
Overall this is a fantastic starter TKL kit, and one that I would have no reservations recommending (particularly over the Skyloong GK87) for those going into the hobby.

Perfect for beginner!
Bought this for my 8yr old son for Christmas and it was a huge hit! It's tough to see in this pic but the RGB glow through the transparent case is pretty cool. Thank you Drop for helping me make this gift happen.

Amazing for a plastic case
Build quality is surprisingly great, the stock stabilizers need some work as mine were heavily over lubed, but it’s nice for the price.

This board surprised me
The Goods: This board is surprising well built for the price. I was not expecting it to feel like the tank that it is at this price level. I have the smokey edition and tested it with Everglide Violets and xda profile matcha set. The sound profile leans more towards a thock sound and the sound dampening and stabs out of the box are good. I did lube the stabs but you don't have to clip them because they are already clipped from the factory. The Gripes: The RGB is just basic so don't expect any elaborate effects out of it. I just use mine on a static color but do note that the white backlight on this looks blue rather than a pure white. Also the board has 3 USBC ports but they are inlaid so far into the board it is hard to find cables that will work with this board outside of the one that it ships with I would rather the ports be flush to alleviate this in future revisions if they do happen.

Amazing board for the price
Very good stock, only mods really needed would be some foam on the bottom + getting some better stabs if you don't like the stock ones.

It's a very good DIY keyboard
This is one of the better TKL keyboards on the market right now. It comes with a dampening pad between the PCB and Plate, and also well-lubed stabilizers. There was no noticeable rattle from the stabilizers. It was also relatively easy to dismantle and mod. I put in a layer of neoprene inside the case to help mellow out the hollow bottom. For a ~$60 board, this thing has a ton of potential. While the included plate and stabilizers are plate-mount, there are extra PC(Polycarbonate) plates available on places like AliExpress that will allow you to use either plate-mount or PCB-mount stabilizers.

Surprised
I shell out good money for keyboards...this one with NK blueberrys and SA caps is the best keyboard I have right now...it pains me greatly to say it. Its also the cheapest.

Got this on a whim when it was $60. You can get this board for about this much from Aliexpress including shipping (but have to wait weeks) so $60 is reasonable I think. Having said that, it's a super nice DIY board. There's silicone dampener between the PCB and the plate already installed. There's no case foam but I didn't really feel it needed it. Opening the case up is a bit more complicated than it needed to be necessitating the removal of some screws before unsnapping the clips--so I didn't bother opening it up. I like the translucent plastic. It makes the RGB look great and looks better than the standard smooth ABS plastic of keyboards in this price range. There's very little flex or squeak when flexed. The stabilizers are perfectly fine. The backlight is very nice. Not sure if it's the translucent case or what but it's much more pleasant than the RGB in my other boards. I knew there was no bluetooth already but I was slightly disappointed anyway and would have used this as my daily if it had wireless. The deeply recessed USB C port is annoying if you want to use any other cable besides the one that was included. I have Boba U4T and Drop TTY MT3 keycaps on and enjoy the feel and sounds (the stabilized keys sound great). Just wish it had bluetooth so that it could be my daily driver.

Very surprised on the quality
Wasn’t expecting to much from a $60 board, but the quality and heft was surprisingly good. It stays put on your desk when typing and and like others have mentioned adds a deep and a little hollow sound when typing with C3 Banana Spilts. It has plate mounted stabilizers that come factory lubed. Not ideal but they work surprisingly well after adding some Krytox 205g0. The firmware from FL Esports worked well and adds easy customization for beginners.
