Modders beware
If you plan on doing any mods to the board that requires taking it apart, it is very difficult to do so without breaking it. The top part of the housing is just thin plastic and is very hard to get off without fear of breaking it. I ended up wearing down one of the tabs that hold it on so that it required less torque to remove it. There is also very little room under the pcb for adding foam so it would have to be very thin foam or tape mod. The actual keyboard itself works well enough, but one thing that bothers me is that the spacebar led is used to indicate the charge level of the battery and is always on, even if all the other leds are turned off. I just put some tape over the switch itself to keep the light from shining through as the keycap set I am using does not allow light through so I have the RGB turned off, but the spacebar still glowed green to show full charge. Its a good cheap entry point into mech keyboards but not much more than that.

You’ll have to watch out not to mess anything up
The rgb is very touchy and I have switched the color from rainbow to green a few times and the only solution I found was to factory reset the keyboard and it took me many days to find out how to even do that it’s very vague and I think it should have an updated key bind doc because fn and backspace is not the right key bind to reset it and it’s frustrating to have to look everywhere again to find it and for the money I spend on it, it should be better if you need to factory reset it I posted it in the comments or questions.

super sad!
This is my first ever mechanical keyboard that I bought barebone. But mine's on/off switch on the back of the keyboard does not function properly:
  • It could only turns on when plugged into a computer and dies once unplugged which defeated the purpose of having a Bluetooth connectivity. And yes, I've tried charging it fully according to the manual but still to no avail.
  • The Bluetooth connectivity works but was pointless as my Keyhome keyboard only has power to function when being plugged into a computer and cannot go wireless.
  • I tried to take out the PCB to see if there's any cable issues that could be fixed so my that keyboard could go wireless but the PBC bracket's clamps were so tight that I risked breaking the bracket if I tred to force it to open.
Conclusion:
  • I'm left with a wireless keyboard that only functions when I plug in the cable.
  • sad

Pretty good but requires some work out of the box
There's a lot about this to like, especially as a quiet travel 65%. I ordered this because it reminds me of the Keywalker IFD68 RGB which appears to be discontinued but with the improvement of hotswaps. The keycaps it comes with are totally acceptable and I was hoping this would be a little more ready to go and make a good easy to rec travel keyboard for friends and family. Unfortunately it ended up needing a bit more work to get to an acceptable state than expected. The hotswaps are a great convenience and made subbing in my preferred Zilent switches much easier than it was on the IFD68 and while I did end up changing the stabs while I was at it I would rate the stock ones as acceptable, certainly not nightmarishly rattley like the IFD68 stock stabs. My big issue with this keyboard is that the function layer seems only partway set up out of the box. The keyboard has a "End" key but FN+END doesn't equal the "Home" key, there is no function combo for the Home key. Likewise there's no Print Screen key on the function layer at all (usually it's mapped to FN+P on 65% boards. I haven't tried the provided remap tool yet because I can't run strange EXEs on a work computer but I'll update this once I have. If the remap tool is easy enough I may bump this to four stars.
