Cooler than it looks
I bought this with the expectation that it would be a cool addition to my office space, and nothing more. What I found was that I love the look and feel of everything about it! The quality of the build is awesome. The lighting is amazing and all of the different patterns you can choose from are nice. Still trying to learn about QMK so I can take full advantage of the macropad!

Great Macropad
This is a great little macropad! The build quality is very good, the keycaps are cute, and the RGB diffuses really well through the bottom and through the switches. The assembly is also very easy (all tools required are included), and programming through VIA is very interactive, so this would also work great for someone with little experience who's just getting into it. It does get quite warm after being plugged in for a while, but I haven't found that to be an issue.

Good but room for improvement
This macropad was very easy to assemble and is a nice size, enough keys to make it useful but not so large to take up a lot of desk space. The board itself is great quality and has some nice weight to it considering how small it is, but the included keycaps were not great quality. I wound up using relegendable keycaps so I could customize, and I swapped out the included Cherry switches for better ones, so a barebones option would've been preferable and helped to save a little money. I don't like that the non-slip feet cover the screws under the board. Let's face it, that's the kiss of death in terms of modability. All things considered, it's a little overpriced for what you get.

Nice mass to it
the case is pretty hefty and feels nice and the diffuser on the bottom is a nice touch

Room for improvement
The underglow RGB looks great and the overall build quality is ok for the price point, but there's definitely room for improvement to lower costs for consumers. The Macropad itself: I'm personally not too keen on the half-half north-facing and south-facing pcb, I wish they kept it normal or did it the other way around so that the LEDs don't glare directly towards me. I also didn't like how the rubber feet stickers cover the screws. This makes it difficult to open the bottom cover for repair/modding, it would be better to have insets for feet elsewhere so that the screws are accessible. The full package: The novelty keycaps were nice to have, but they weren't particularly high quality and I don't see too much value in them since I replaced them with keys more relevant to my macros. It also came with cherry switches that I didn't use. There was also a very basic (cheap-feeling) type A-C cable and a switch puller. All these extra parts in the box led to an unnecessarily large package for a small product. While I understand that having switches, keycaps, a cable, and keycap puller in the box does have its appeal for being "ready for use", this is a product marketed at enthusiasts and the majority of us already have switches, keycaps, cables, and tools of our own preference. It would greatly benefit both the manufacturer and the buyers if the switches, keycaps, cable, and switch puller are omitted from the package to significantly lower procurement and shipping costs.

Programming
Nice build quality... any instructions to program this via VIA or GMK are lacking..The only reason I came across VIA is comments here.. Not all of us are programmers/ software engineers. I understand overall, it is not extremely hard to do, or dig into if you are semi technically..however it is not easy to find or have basic instructions...how about a youtube video on your channel, link on your website, link here...

Nice little pad
I liked this macro pad a lot. I've built a few and this is one of the nicer ones out there. Using VIA is way better than trying to program it with other software and the keycaps are cute. Really easy to assemble too, so if anyone is looking for a starter pad, this is a good product.
