Just got mine, and I am miffed.
The switches feel nice, and the keycaps aren't bad, but... why on earth is the FN key all the way on the right?! I know it's kind of on me for not realizing when I bought it, but jesus freaking christ, who (besides Lenovo) thinks that that's a good idea? Especially when the board is not programmable, it would have been nice to at least use the standard layout. Additionally, maybe the main photo should not obscure the only part of the layout that's not standard (backlight choice was poor for the cover photo).

now that i've fixed my other issues, that's the only thing really griping me about this keyboard now.

Yeah, seriously. That's the whole reason why I started getting into mechanical keyboards in the first place - my work laptops are almost always Lenovo, and I was sick of hitting Fn when I meant to hit Ctrl.
Also, now that I've used it for a few days - these switches don't impress me. When they work, it's nice - a much more muted click than most others with a delightful feel - but so many of them stick or feel... uneven? which is more noticeable with prolonged use.
Definitely not going to try these types of switches again any time soon. :/

I have the 60% version and I actually kind of like it because I can press the fn key with the right side of my right palm instead of a finger. I already do that with my left palm for left ctrl. Its awkward at first, but its really fast once you get used to it!
