Arrived Defective
Arrived with half the LEDs nonfunctional. I waited to open and build this as I was busy at the time it arrived and wanted a project for later. Couldn't get it fixed by Drop; no warranty and out of Drop's 30 days. If you decide to get it, open and test it all immediately so you don't get fucked over.

I love this keyboard
I love how solid this keyboard is, and it wasn’t a perfect keyboard, but with a few mods this became my daily driver. I love the under-glow (Im usually not a fan of rgb) and the heaftyness of the aluminum feels nice. My only dislike with idobao boards are that the plate is connected to the actual keyboard.

Not the best for the price
Overall I will say the case feels pretty premium, especially with the construction and solid brass weight. The cherry screw-in stabilizers are a good inclusion if you care about additional costs, and for those that care, the lighting is pretty bright and done well. Inclusion of in-depth QMK/VIA support is nice and not to be taken for granted, at least for stock firmware. However as a counterpoint, the case ends up sounding pretty hollow, since it does not come with any foam or dampening silicon. The plate is also tray-mount, meaning it is attached directly to the top frame, leaving a very resonant typing sound and firm feel. As a solution, I layered around 4 pieces of computer paper directly below the PCB. As the title states, this board is just okay for the price, especially for something that is mass-manufactured. IDOBAO's crystal gasket keyboard is far better for the feature-set and you wont miss out on the weight of an all alu case, since that one comes with a huge chunk of brass.

First "Enthusiast keyboard"
As far as looks go it is a really good looking board even when compared to higher end boards. Where if falls short is the sound (subjective), and features (can also be subjective.) The board does give off more clack than thock because it's encased by aluminum. The PC bottom plate and brass weight help with some of the noise problems on the higher spectrum, but its still a bit too clacky for my taste. The stabs are horrible which is a shame at this price point. Where other competitors offer better stabs. It does not flex which is subjective but the robust typing experience from a gasket mount is a plus for me and it also increases the thockiness since it absorbs noise from typing. Okay, the good... The lighting even though it does not have per-key rgb the underglow is just such a more subtle and tasteful design. The metal anodize is simple but tasteful. I would say that other have a "nicer" anodizing process but it is nice and it's not have any flaws with my unit. Overall even among my gasket mounted keyboards and more feature packed ones it does stand out and holds its own. It's for sure not my favorite anymore but its a good entry. If you are into clacky builds this may be addition to your collection. It does have brass after all... I will say that for 200 it is a bit pricey. There are a lot more competitive options out there. I think the key differentiation is the aesthetic. If you like the way it looks and are okay with it's shortcomings it's a good board.

seems legit
This board is my second custom keyboard so I'm not an expert. If you're thinking about buying this board because you saw a YouTube video or a content creator speak highly of it and was wondering if it was worth it, then yes it is. It looks amazing and has a nice weight to it. I have a cheap setup for it right now and haven't invested much time into it but it sound great (IMO) right out the box. I'm currently running hippo linear switches (no lube) Stock stabs and some cheap amazon keycaps. I love this board and I think with some love it can go from good to great. Great

Great Keyboard for Beginners
The case itself is pretty neat, simple, and clean, but I do have so say that the stabs it came with aren't the greatest. In other words, I highly suggest buying your own stabs and don't make the same mistake as I did by buying the wrong stabs either haha... I also want to emphasize that this IDOBAO V2 is an integrated plate meaning you don't need to buy a separate plate. However, this keyboard is capable of having a bottom case foam if any of y'alls are interested in that. I bought mines on Green Door Geeks; you can just search ID80v2 SMRTfoam. Other than that, I did enjoy building this keyboard!

Good Keyboard
The build quality is great. The sound is nice, but the lower row sounds a little hollow, so I wish it came with some cut foam for the bottom. There are also new options for around this price nowadays.
