Personally, as a touch typist I got used to it quick, I bought it as a tinker item and because I wanted a mech board that can hotswap. Chose to do the "Extra Secure" mounting option, used linear and clicky switches, no real reverberation or ping that I can notice.

Awesome!
Bought the kit for the PCB. Loved the quality of the PCB and was able to easily solder on RGB LEDs and looks great in my custom case!

Layout Beautiful....
Layout and layer setting are very convenient.

But I wanted more keyboards.

I want 100% full size Ortholinear.

Nice for show. Not so productive in real life.
Typing Thai language on this is a nightmare therefore I can't use it for my daily work. However, it looks really nice and feels solid.. so.. I guess it's perfect for people only using English or French.

This board is amazing
Ortholinear is definitly a layout to try , its very awkward at first, but one you get the hang, I found it easier to type with it. The price and hotswap-ability is also definitely a plus!

Great keyboard
This keeb has been a joy to use, I am very happy with it. Assembly was a breeze and a lot of fun. I opted to get just the board and plate and ordered a Datamancer Walnut case separately. Other reviews recommended getting a magnetic USB-C cable to ease the pressure on the connector, that has worked well for me. The ortholinear learning curve was not as steep as I expected, it felt natural after a few weeks of solid use.

Great keyboard
Took a while to get used to, but now I’m in love. Haven’t gotten around to customizing the firmware with QMK, but looking forward to it.

I love this keyboard!
This board is unbelievably easy to put together. No soldering and the tools are all included. There's an online UI to help you program multiple layers and has some really cool "quantum" keys like the enter key is shift when held but enter when tapped. If you are a little more adventurous (and it's not that difficult) you can use QMK toolbox to program almost anything you want. I bought two and I'm probably going to get a third. Jack has done such a great job with these and I can't recommend this enough. It takes a minute to get used to the layout, but once you do it really feels like all keyboards should be ortholinear. Thank you and I can't wait to see the planck come back!!

https://config.qmk.fm/#/1upkeyboards/1up60hse/LAYOUT_60_ansi This is the default layout that comes up when you access the configurator. You need to pick the preonic rev 3 from the drop down list and you'll see the layout pop up. You'll see a tab at the bottom that says "quantum" will have some really cool key options! Just hover over the keys to see a brief description!

One of the greats, for sure. I’ve found that I prefer the numbers on a separate layer so I spend most of my time on my Planck. Both are amazing, though. It just depends how you like your numbers.
