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'!

I purchased the Blackbird as it met the list of requirements I had for a gaming keyboard. I was replacing a CoolerMaster CM Storm due to multiple burned out LEDs (post-warranty) and wanted something of a higher caliber and quality. While it is impossible to know for sure via pictures on the internet, the Blackbird seemed to fit the bill. I took the plunge...

...And I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase! While the CM Storm had the "same" Cherry MX browns, both the keycaps and the feel and sound of the keys on the Blackbird are vastly superior. There is NO QUESTION as to the high quality in material and workmanship of this outstanding keyboard.

I am a life-long gamer, and I am serious about my gear - the Blackbird in my estimation would be a bargain at twice the price. I have found the last keyboard I'll ever own - Max, keep making it, because I want to buy another one when this one wears out!

5+ stars, without reservation...

This keyboard is amazing. The aesthetic, the amount of functionality built in the board, the build quality; it's all fantastic. The included wrist-rest is very nice as well. The price on this board is very reasonable as well, I would've gladly payed $200 for a keyboard of this quality. The fact that I got it for $105 during the Christmas sales makes it all the sweeter.

TL;DR - You can look, but I doubt you'll find a better 75% TKL board out there.

Ordered it on Amazon. Exactly what I was expecting. Solid build and great feel. Exact size I thought it would be. Great for travel. LEDs look great, and the customizing features built into it are perfect. Side panel lighting looks great as well.

Nice keyboard! I'm ordering a second one for the office, I like mine so well.

I have been using the BlackBird Tenkeylkess (TKL) Cherry MX board in the Brown Key style with Blue backlights. I have modified it with clear black translucent keycaps in SOME of the keys, since I use it for gaming a lot.

I replaced a lot of the LED lights with different colors, no problem, would suggest using a solder sucker, I used the Radio Shack model with built in iron, worked great. So some of my keys now have bright colors that mark what they are used for in the game and others are different colors with the original keycaps for different uses as I see fit. Admittedly, I have some soldering experience that most do not have, but I think if you have soldered a bit, and fairly confident, I see no reason not to try it, though for a price, they will customize a keyboard for you if you would rather with LED lights in any color they sell. The keyboard I have is fairly easy to disassemble and reassemble. No special tools used, just be careful and don't force anything, take your time the first time. Look at instuctions.

There was no problem with the different voltages that used to be needed for the different colored LED lights, if you are worried about that, just replace them and they work as long as you use the ones they sell, I cannot comment and would not reccomend any other brand in these keyboards.

NOT ONE LED HAS BURNED OUT IN A YEAR, including the ones I replaced myself with their LEDs they sell in different colors. I use the keyboard and my six year old grandson uses it for gaming also, that says a lot. A six year old is kinda messy, it is their way, heh. He gets excited and loses control sometimes while gaming, but the keyboard stands up to it.

The staff there at MAX keyboards are stellar with their concern for the correct keyboard for you. They will hold your hand through the process and help you to make the right decision for you. I am very impressed with that company.

Everything I hoped it would be. I bought this keyboard to replace a Filco mechanical keyboard that had made my life miserable for two years. (It never worked properly, even after two returns - the second and third ones were as bad as the first.) The Max Keyboard is wonderful to type on! I love the blue Cherry switches and the tactile feel.

The lighted keys are also surprisingly useful. Before I received the keyboard I thought of the lighted keys as a gimmick but now that I'm using it I consider them very pleasant.

The keyboard has a solid, high quality feel to it. This keyboard is the best one I've typed on since the IBM keyboards from the '80s.

looks and feels good. You will not go wrong with this BLACKBIRD TKL!

good & fast

Thank you. ^^
