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

Beautiful Transparent Keyboard
The combination of the clear acrylic with the brass weight and accents looks absolutely stunning. Also really good for RGB if that's what you're after. This keyboard is not the best for performance per buck by any means, but it is one of the most pretty boards I have ever built. The build itself isn't hard and while there aren't any instructions as some others have noted, it should be pretty self explanatory and straight forward, if not just watch some short YouTube videos and you should be fine. I had no issues with the connection issues some people are mentioning, so I'm assuming that issue has been fixed, since I was able to flash my board using QMK just fine and I haven't had any issues with the keyboard not working. The PC plate option will be more "thocky" given that it has a lower specific stiffness than brass, but if you like a firm typing experience, the brass plate can become really "marbly" with a little modding and the right switches. It says gasket but the gasket performance is pretty much nonexistent. If you are after a squishy or bouncy typing feel, this keyboard isn't for you. I bought it for $230 with both plates (just to try it out, ended up sticking with the brass for looks), it says that it's on sale from $339 but if it's ever actually listed for $339 in the future please don't buy it. Just get a Keychron Q1 or something and save yourself $100+. 5/5 because I don't think there are many (if any) 75% options that match this aesthetic. Don't buy if you don't like this look, or if it's not on sale.

Fun see-through keyboard, uncompetitive price
Started experiencing an issue where the keyboard would become unresponsive - needed to unplug and wait several minutes to plug back into my machine. Today, it's gone off the deep end; after trying to unplug and replug on the laptop end, the keyboard end, trying out different ports, connecting to a new laptop, it refuses to respond: the only thing it does is turn the caps lock key light on. EDIT: I believe the cable they ship this keyboard out with is not the best. Turns out the issue was with the cable - nothing to do with the PCB. All in all, it's a fun keyboard, but the gasket mount springiness is essentially nonexistent. I enjoy the slightly metallic, pingy sound. Outfitted with Aquaking switches and pudding keycaps.

HEAVY BOYYYY
Yeah so this could be a murder weapon, I hope your desk is like reinforced titanium cause she's a CHONKER. All jokes aside the brass has a satisfyingly smooth brushed finish that makes you feel like a heathen for daring to disgrace it with your fingie prints. The included stabs look minty fresh and are mega smooth even without lubing to boot. The crystal case makes you wanna stare and the black pcb ties the whole color scheme together, along with the beeeeefy shape, it just makes for a really premium feeling package!
