Review of Keyboard:
Excellent build quality and the keyboard caps that come standard on the keyboard are wonderful. I did not purchase this keyboard with the wrist rest in mind, but the one supplied is also of great quality and I am now using it daily. The side lighting of the keyboard is definitely a personal preference but something that I really enjoy and makes my blue/black themed battle station really shine. If you are looking for a TenKeyLess keyboard that is top notch quality and has a bit of flair with its side lighting, this is the keyboard for you. It's really hard to say anything negative about the keyboard - the build quality feels like it is worth every penny and using the keyboard feels the same way.

Review of Customer Service:
I've spoken with Kent and Jerry about this keyboard and I have been amazed with the customer support I receive each and every time. I had worked with Kent about visiting the showroom in Fremont and not only did I receive prompt replies, but he was willing to stay late any day of the week in order to fit my schedule. I wanted to use a promotional discount but did not have the coupon code so I emailed Kent at night expecting a response the next day, but I received a reply within minutes of asking. When the specific model I was looking to buy was out of stock, Jerry went through their showroom to find a spare keyboard for me to purchase - all within an hour of asking if there may be one. This is one company that really makes you feel important as a customer, truly taking the time to address your personal concerns and have quality products to back up their quality service.

Thanks again for the keyboard, hoping the custom backlit keycaps become available soon to make another purchase from these guys!

Very impressed with the high-quality structure of the keyboard base. On top of that, the included doubleshot ABS keycaps feel really really good. I recently tried doubleshot PBT and I think I like the included keycaps more than the ones I spent more money on.

Really impressed with the LED lighting and the 4 modes. I got the blue ones and they look great.

As for the cherry MX brown switches, they feel perfectly good.

Really like that MAX included a wrist rest, and a keycap puller! A great sign of commitment towards the customer.

Love this keyboard alot. I know it will last a long time.

I purchased the Max Blackbird after doing quite a bit of research on mechanical keyboards. Some folks on the mechanical keyboard subgroup on reddit gave it high marks, and I had read good reviews on various sites. I have to say, it is exactly what I was looking for! Great quality, the MX Brown switches are awesome, the keyset looks and feels great, and the LED options are very nice.

It is a good, high quality, very attractive keyboard. I would recommend this board to anyone looking for a good tenkeyless design.

Excellent keyboard! Great service from Max. It shipped right away.

Excellent build quality with just the right amount of features. As a linux user I really appreciate that everything works out of the box with no drivers necessary. I highly recommend.

Really an incredible keyboard, especially after using cheap keyboards for years. I love the backlit keys! It was a wonderful experience going to the store and trying out all the keyboards. Looks like I'll have to buy another one for my son who keeps borrowing mine...

Very well made, I've been extremely satisfied with how the keys work and the quality of the build of the product. The bonus wrist rest is very helpful too.

This is a great keyboard for programmers. I love the clacky feel and the responsiveness. I bought two, one for home and one for work. In consideration of my coworkers, I installed the o ring dampeners on the keyboard for work.

This keyboard is great. I got the Cherry MX Brown switches and love the feel and sound. The build quality is very good using quality materials. The keycaps are quality also and let the backlight through well. I would highly recommend this keyboard.
