Great quality and value
This was my first mech build coming from a CM Quickfire TK, it was much more affordable than some of the other custom options out there. I saw some complaints about damaged cases from delivery - I got mine in excellent condition, no dents or scuffs of any kind. They put bubble wrap around the keyboard, but it doesn't cover the ends. It's all in a fitted cardboard box, I supposed if you dropped it on the ends on something hard it could mess it up, but it seems difficult to me. Still, a little extra bubble wrap probably could have made it extra safe.
I did have one of the stabilizers pop out and break some of the clips, they come installed on the PCB. It comes with a spare. I installed mostly GMK stabilizers, but left one of the stock stabs in. The difference after clipping/lubing isn't too much but I do prefer the GMK.
Setup wasn't too bad after I figured out the right download, it's easy to customize. The PCB has different options it takes a little positioning to make sure you have things right. The LED's from the bottom of the board actually do leak up through my keycaps a bit if I turn them on, maybe it's more noticeable on the silver case?
It helped with some of the acoustics that I added some of the foam layers from the packaging behind the PCB inside the case. This helps to support the USB port a bit too. I lubed the Gateron yellows I added to my order, and I love the end result. The keyboard feels and sounds fantastic.
The case is as heavy as others would have you believe, it's a tank of a keyboard. Included USB cable feels like one of those charging cables you get off of Amazon, but it matches my setup. Just wish it was a little longer for how my computer is positioned.
Would recommend to anyone looking for the "96" layout (this is 99 keys in the layout I chose).
