I've been using this keyboard for traditional rhythm gaming, and it works very well for my eccentric playing style.
I like that I'm able to move it accordingly for a variety of playing techniques that are suitable to me.
Everything was perfect. Easy to put together and program.
I bought one of these as a first time small project dipping my toes into soldering with keyboards. I followed the video that Maxkey had and I had no problems putting it together. I didn't get my switches with Maxkey, instead opting to go with some Kailh Chinese Reds from NovelKeys. The pad does everything I wanted it to do, and while the keybinding program is kind of clunky and I would have prefered QMK, it was still easy enough to use so I could create the macros I wanted. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a small starter project to get into the hobby.
Build quality is great, quick and easy to assemble and fully customizable too.
Excellent quality of materials, fast delivery. The assembly was straightforward and fun, could be a nice gift idea for anyone into soldering and computers. Overall this product is great for anyone looking for extra accessibility with work and games and I would highly recommend.
Excellent product, fast delivery
