An Interesting Device
(Please note that I’m a casual user of keyboards and am fairly inexperienced with keyboard customization.) It’s a well-built little device and the big keys are quite satisfying to press. For the three regular keys, I used Outemu Blue clicky switches and they fit and work fine. One thing I haven’t been able to figure out yet (assuming it’s possible) is how to make the key backlighting a different color than that of the undercarriage lighting. As a novice, I was confused at first during the configuration process but I was able to figure out some basics to make the macropad functional enough. Overall I found the macropad to be a fun gadget and decoration, with the potential to be a more useful tool for me in the future.

Excellent build quality
Works instantly out of the box. Took a bit to locate the json configuration file to load in for VIA, but once that loaded in customization was super easy. The RGB lighting is bright and beautiful. Customizing the lights provided plenty of fun presets and you can achieve some very nice looks. The underglow looks great with the frosty transparent bottom, you get an impressive amount of color. I just love the giant switches. Currently using the big buttons to switch between desktop workspaces, a lot more fun than the normal key combos.

VIA Compatible - If you upload the keymap file
  • Build Quality : Given that the housing is CNC'd aluminum, it's hard to disagree with the overall construction. Especially happy that this device uses USB-C. It's a small quality of life improvement but one that I don't have to worry about. The only question I have is how long the translucent keycaps will stay clean.
  • Via Compatibility : Once you upload the file, it's not a big deal. However, it took some time to realize that was required. I recommend updating the product description or making it apparent somewhere that this is required and to provide the file. You can find the file and keymap file here: https://wiki.keebmonkey.com/en/products/mmp
  • For some macro ideas:
  • Large buttons are used to switch between Headphones and Speakers (with the help of audioswit.ch)
  • Smaller buttons are used to launch my morning routine (Outlook, Teams, and some other work apps)

jpakWhat do you do once you import the json. I changed what I want the keys to do, but the key tester doesnt show anything working.

tonsoffun49By default, the top two keys should be mapped to Enter and Space. The bottom three should be mapped to [1 and 3] [toggle] [2 and 4]. If it's a simple keystroke, the tester should display the new keystroke. If not, I recommend testing it out in a text editor.

Very pretty, very useful
I'm an unabashed fan of RGB, and this macropad delivers RGB in droves. Huge, bright, colorful lights pour from this thing like a hallucinating unicorn, and I love it. What of it as a Macropad? The buttons work well, they're easy to program, and I love that I can change out the switches and caps. I use transparent caps, of course, for maximum glow.

Switch Rattle and not QMK supported
If you can get past the two functions above then I'll gladly recommend this product cause it's pretty fun pressing the giant switches. The Outemu big switches has some rattling when you press it down and you not only can hear it but also feel it in your finger tips. Feels and sounds like having loose change in your pockets. The bad thing is that it's hard to find Outemu switches because I would love to try tactile and linear ones on this board. Furthermore, the Outemu switches are soldered on so no luck taking it apart to lube or modify the switch and I don't really want to scratch the case trying to take the whole thing apart. This macropad being not QMK supported is pretty disappointing as I would love to program it with more layers and have different colors on each layer but sadly I can't. But all in all, I think it's a novel product for people who are looking for novelty over functionality (Not that it's not functional but there's only 5 switches on this thing. Functionality isn't it's selling point).

VIA support
It is a great lil macro board, but it doesn't have VIA support by default and you need too flash it, which isn't bad, but still annoying
