Very cool. Not cheap, but not cheaply made either. I have used it for a week now and I like it very much. It is clearly well made using quality materials. Very well packaged and delivered on time. I am very happy that I choose the Max Blackbird Tenkeyless keyboard. It is very cool.

I got the brown keys coming from a set of blues and I love the browns for gaming so much more than the blues. I only really play dota 2 and the brown is a very nice change. I no longer fuck up with double taps. I will use this keyboard for gaming, which is what I got it for. In periods of heavy typing I actually prefer my asus chromebook c200 over the sexy brown keys. The keyboard is superb quality I've had it many months and the LEDs are staying strong. The keys are super consistent and I sometimes I fantasize about touching them to flow on some dota. It's not a big deal but linux support would be great. The default lighting is fine though.

High quality materials, very nice weight. Good aesthetics.

My only concern with this keyboard is the illumination. The little printed triangles on the side are mediocre but more importantly the illumination slightly flickers (for me).

My two keyboards arrived promptly. Their build quality is excellent and the documentation of the added lighting, N-key rollover, and other customization functions are clear and easy to use. The layout, keycaps, and case are comfortable to use even during very long typing sessions. I am very satisfied with my two Blackbird keyboards and would highly recommend them!

I've owned mine for a few months and I'm extremely happy about this purchase. I did a absolute ton of keyboard research for months before I chose this device.

Here are the pros:
1. The font on the keys is tasteful but still cool. it's just right.
2. In reading reviews, the backlights have a reputation of not fizzling out due to static discharge, which is very common in other backlit keyboards. My cat even spilled a shit load of water into this keyboard, and it's totally fine after opening and drying.
3. Read other reviews here. The build and materials used feel very high quality. The cable, housing, key-caps, everything is solid.
4. Back-lit, 10-keyless keyboards just cost 150 or way higher. It's hard to believe, but trust me when I say this is the market price. It's totally a good deal for what it is.
5. There were bonuses. I didn't realize there were usb ports, and the wrist rest is pretty frigging great.

Here's the meh:
1. When purchasing the keyboard, the only style thing I didn't like was the illuminated side panels. They do not really bother me as much as I thought they would, but I'm still not a huge fan.

And the cons:
1. You should know by looking at other parts of this website that the keyboard is hard as shit to re-assemble: and it's those damn side illumination panels that cause it to be hard! With that said, I was able to figure it out. You have to fold the illumination wires into the chassis before snapping everything together, or else they get pinched. Probably easier with 2 people.


My keyboard has blue switches and red leds.

I'm really happy about this purchase. I looked a long time at mechanical keyboards and decided I wanted a tenkeyless for my small desk space.

I narrowed it down to a few keyboards and finally decided to go with blackbird brown cherry mx keyboard. This is really well built keyboard. It's sturdy! I really like the basic look of the keyboard. I'm not a big fan of all the crazy looking gaming keyboards. I'm not a huge fan of lighting on keyboards or so I thought. I ended up trying it out on the lowest setting which I really like and haven't turned it off since. Nice shade of blue.

The gaming key works great, and I absolutely love the timing feature where you can set keys timed in 10 minute increments up to 120 minutes. Also amazing customer support when I had some questions prior to the purchase. Great keyboard!

Perfect keyboard for me. All of the features were spot on for me and the keyboard was up and running for me within seconds. I got mine with Cherry MX Blue switches, and they're just loud enough to annoy my friends and they feel brilliant to type and game with. The blue LEDs I got perfectly match in LEDs in both my Corsair 230T case and my Logitech G402 mouse. The keyboard does sit a bit high, but then again it would due to the switches and the included wrist rest relieves any discomfort I had when first confronting the elevation of the keyboard. This keyboard is very weighty, but that attests to the excellent build quality. I couldn't be happier with my purchase, and I definitely have been spreading the word about this keyboard and company and will continue to do so. I'm considering buying the full sized counterpart to this keyboard for work, that's how good it is. Buy. This. Keyboard.

Very impressed. I have the Brown switches, installed o-rings. Good combination between noise, feel and softness of key landing.

I use the keyboard on both Windows and Mac. Works well on both. Just used the OSX utility to remap two keys and everything works.

Only complaint is that back lighting is too bright on low setting if all keys are backlit. My solution was to selectively light about 15 keys so I can find my way around the keyboard at night. After I got used to it, I also prefer the selective lighting during the day.

Just got mine a couple days ago off Amazon. Definitely a bit pricey but I'd say it was worth it. The craftsmanship and quality is evident down to the smallest detail. Love the look and feel of this keyboard.

I wish I could give this keyboard four and a half stars. Or 4.99 stars. I have to take a little bit off for one issue. Apart from that, the keyboard is outstanding. The doubleshot keys are pretty awesome, and the keys that control various functions have them on the front of the key rather than shoved in with the normal legend. I love MX Browns, which is kinda what sold me on the keyboard, and the USB ports at the top instead of at the mouse side are pretty awesome, one cable for keyboard, mouse, and my USB tenkey for when I have to take care of data entry. This wasn't my first (nor my last) mechanical board, and overall the quality is great. If you're looking for a TKL, this one is amazing. Now, back to that issue I mentioned, this keyboard would be perfect if the USB was detachable keyboard side. It's a super minor issue that most people would never notice, but it's been a minor inconvenience to me. Apart from that, there's just one thing to say, when do we get a RGB Blue/Brown/Red Blackbird? C'mon Max Keyboard, I'd rather give you guys my money than Corsair.... But my fingers are itchin'!
