I just wanted to say thank you again for the help, I really appreciate it!
The shipment arrived yesterday; I used the puller, and I've been typing with the new key caps ever since.
I took a picture (with a low quality camera) just to show a friend, and I thought I'd show you too: https://i.imgur.com/opP9EI9.jpg (Corsair Gaming K70 RGB)
De-bundling those four keys from their complete set really helped me out.
Maybe in the future Max Keyboard will always sell those keys individually?
Received my key cap replacement in the mail yesterday, and I just wanted to thank you for your incredibly swift and effective customer service. I won't hesitate to use your site again in the future.

Just received my X7 Nighthawk keyboard this past Saturday and so far I am very pleased. The custom LED lighting on this keyboard is awesome and love how I can control the intensity. I got a 5 different color LED keyboard to make certain functions easier to see without having to hunt and search the keyboard in the dark. I definitely recommend Max Keyboard to anyone who is looking a mechanical keyboard. I looked at about 9 different makers before deciding to go with Max. Ken Chang showed amazing customer service by returning my call even after they closed their doors for the day. This showed me that they are never too busy to take care of people and I take customer service very seriously. I will definitely look to them in the future for more devices, especially if all the devices are as well built as this keyboard. It has a good weight to where it doesn't slide across the desk when in use. Bravo Max Keyboard, you just earned a customer for life!

Recently got mine in. I bought the Purple Backlit X8 because it's the only purple led backlit one that has audio and usb from my research and boasts a cherry brown switch. Every second with it so far has been a joy. In fact I just purchased a custom keycap to go with this, and I am looking forward to customized my keys further. I love this beauty and have recommended maxkeyboards to my friends who happen to be razer fanboys (ugh!) hopefully I can convince them to try out a X8 or an X9

overall good, but a few things could have made it Excellent:
* dedicated LED button, and media controls, and volume
* LED auto off after a few seconds idle
* ability to make the LED much more dimmer
Got mine just today and just simply amazing. Sound that protrude out of the keys activating is not loud enough to piss me off. Ducky mechanical keyboards were loud! These LEDs could be dimmed and just absolutely outstanding. 5/5 for me :)

I got the Nighthawk X8 keyboard about a month ago. I really loved it. Also the fonts on modifier keys are nice to look at. This is my first mechanical keyboard and the build quality is the best among other keyboards I used.
I am planning to buy a set of translucent keycaps in the future; however 62 dollars for shipping to Europe is some high price. It doubles the price of the keycaps. I think you should find a solution for that; maybe paying the half of it as the seller.

There really aren't enough good things I can say about this keyboard. I am review the X7 Nighthawk with blue blacklight.
I spent a lot of time over the last month looking for the perfect mechanical keyboard. I researched a bunch of different brands: Razer, Logitech, Ducky, Das, and some other. I wanted a ten-key cherry blue switch mechanical keyboard with a backlight. I wanted a keyboard with good build quality, so that's what kept me from a Razer bBlack Widow. I heard about Max on the geekhack forums and came to check them out. I immediately fell in love with the Durandal and Nighthawk series, and new that this is what I was looking for.
Enough of the backstory, now, why should you buy? First off, the build quality of the keyboard is extremely good, it's a solid plastic construction with a good weight and feel to it. It might be trivial, but for some reason I really like the design of the OS key, it has a cool spiral design. The switches feel very good, and make that beautiful clicky-click sound that I adore. The keyboard provides a nice suite of features, media keys, audio and usb passthrough (extremely useful), a ten-key (for your spreadsheets), and gaming mode, if you're into that. I also got the clock-face F-key replacements from Max, and I recommend those as well, very cool looking! For me, Max is the perfect combination of work and play, and I recommend it HIGHLY to any and everyone looking for a mechanical keyboard.
It wouldn't be a complete review if I didn't talk about the things I didn't like so much about it. The keyboard is extremely beefy, as such, it is pretty high off the desk, this causes me a bit of wrist/hand strain. Thankfully, a wrist pad is included with the keyboard, which is a must in my opinion. I think that's the only "complaint" I have with the keyboard. Overall, it's a phenomenal piece of equipment, and if you haven't ordered one already, then you're doing yourself a disservice.
I've been using this keyboard for about a month now and have no regrets. I recommend Max to all my friends and anybody looking for a high quality mechanical keyboard. If you're like me, and currently hunting around for the "perfect" mechanical keyboard, then your quest has come to an end. In several years, when this keyboard finally succumbs to the wear and tear I put on it, I'll be back here buying a new one. Max keyboard is the Internet's best kept secret.

I just got my keyboard today. Took a lot longer then I expected but boy was it worth the wait! I love it!
Just sent a review into Amazon as well. Should be up soon.
Thanks again! I had never heard of your company before a few weeks ago, but it was one of the few that had a tenkeyless with back-lighting so I decided to take a chance on a purchase and I am not disappointed!
This thing just looks and feels amazing and I love my custom colored keys. :)
Very happy customer,
Wow! just wow! bought this keyboard and never got dissappointed about it, that clicky sound, I might not need a Pc,
I may live just with this keyboard (BTW typing with it now)
