Expensive but a nice build
Like the function row, members of my household that use keyboards always dislike my minimalistic keyboards this board is small form factor but has the arrow keys and function row!

Great looking keyboard
I love the clear acrylic and brass look. The LEDs are stupid bright. I built mine with Kailh Box Jellyfish X switches (clicky) and XVX/Womier Clear Translucent Cherry Profile keycaps for that full transparent look. It is gasket mounted, so it prevents any rattling between the plate and case, but the gaskets are quite stiff, so there's not really any flex or bounce. The sound is quite clacky. There really isn't any room to add any foam under the PCB. You might be able to get a thin sheet of PE foam in there, but I feel like that detracts from the aesthetics of this board. Honestly, this is probably gonna be more of a display piece for me, but damn it's pretty!

It is a nice statement on your computer desk <3
I wasn't very satisfied at first when I received the product. I found it a bit finicky as the surface seems to be scratched easily. Also, it wasn't sealed completely after I put on the screws. However, after I installed the switches and keycaps, it works great! I am using AKKO crystal silver switches and biip MT3 keycaps on it. <33 0ω0

Beautiful!
This was the first keyboard I've had to completely assemble, and I think it looks and sounds great. Built it out with Durock V2 clear stabs, Gateron North Pole 50g switches, and DCX 9009 keycaps. Accents are made of Walnut. My friends that aren't as into keyboards as I am, say it looks great. Even my wife says it looks great. Absolutely zero complaints here.

No previous keyboard building experience required!
I love love love the Crystal case and the RGB underglow. The ability to have the keys light up separately and to reduce the strength of the lights. I had played around with keyboards before but mostly just replacing switches and keycaps. This was my first “build” so I was a bit nervous. There was no need to worry as it was relatively straight forward. super happy with the result.

Gorgeous center piece to bring a setup together!
This kit was my first keeb build after digging through forums and seeing what was out there for a while and it did not disappoint! The first thing to say is whether you want the RGB on or off, it's going to be beautiful. The light comes through without being too bright, and the colors accentuate the keyboard perfectly. I combined this kit with the Matcha Keycaps, replaced the stabs with the 43 STUDIO RX78 Gold-Plated PCB Screw-Ins, and Kailh BOX Crystal Pink Clicky switches. I've been using this keeb for just over a year now and I can rightfully say it is worth every penny I spent to build it after coming from Razer Blackwidows over the years. If you're on the fence, jump for it, you won't regret it.

Next level feel, endgame potential!
Item arrived kind of sketchy??? Like maybe it was a return, but the board itself is brand new. The build quality is bonkers at this price point. No lie. It’s a potential end game 75% board.

I love this board, not a great value, but I don't care
This board is amazing. Sure, the gasket mounting does nothing more than improve acoustics, and the lack of a daughterboard makes sure that your board will never see any flex, but I honestly don't care. This board is incredibly premium for the price. The milling on the acrylic housing is absolutely perfect, the bottom weight looks incredible, and the lighting is executed perfectly. This keyboard is stiff, and the acoustics certainly isn't the best, but you won't find a keyboard that looks this good anywhere else, in my opinion. This is very much up to the individual, so if you aren't as in love with its appearance as I am, I would certainly look elsewhere. However, if you want a massive hunk of glowing acrylic on your desk like I do, this is absolutely the best choice for you.

Crystal Clear
I, absolutely, adore this board. This 80% board has gone above and beyond what I imagined. Picked it up during the Black Friday 2022 sales, and I'm incredibly happy that I did. I purchased both the poly and brass plates (which I actually enjoy the brass plate far more than I thought I would). I paired this with Kailh Box Jellyfish switch and some crystal clear keycaps. I wanted this board to be a crystal clear (and bronze, apparently) footprint. I didn't need to soundproof this keyboard. Really, I've hardly needed to do anything at all. The main thing I've done is lube the stock stabs, which work beautifully. I didn't do any tape mod as I wanted the board visible through the bottom and the LEDs to be able to shine through nicely as well. The LEDs are incredibly bright, both behind the keys and under the board. I do suggest downloading and using VIA to control all of these functions. If you do not, you won't be reaching your full potential of what this board is able to do whatsoever. With this software, the keys are also incredibly easy to remap, so that's been really nice. I write in my spare time and use Home and End far more than I do Page Up and Page Down, which I've been able to easily adjust using the VIA software. My only gripe, which really isn't even a big one, is that the screws at the top of the board (used to attached the top and bottom housing) are super deep in the board. It might be difficult to fit a Wowstick or iFixit screwdriver to go that deeply. That's, literally, my only gripe and it wasn't terribly difficult to find yet another screwdriver to complete the job. Just be aware of this during purchase.

BAD but Clearly just Beautiful
The only thing i can say is this kit is well crafted. I did an RMA AND THIS BOARD'S PCB clearly has a defect. If you try waking the computer up by key press, the board Shuts off. It'll come back on if you disconnect and reconnect which is mildly annoying to deal with a messes up productivity and flow. This could be an issue with the 2 boards I received based on the ratings I see. At the same time I can no longer recommend this board no matter how aesthetically pleasing it is. To top it off, customer support basically told me to DEAL with it, since it has been more than 30 days including the RMA. FIRST guy was nice and offered a refund but I liked it enough to give it another try. This time I have had it and want a refund and told to just live with the DEFECT. THX DROP
