    Love it

    This is my daily driver. Light, low, and a pleasure to type on.

    I encountered several 2u keys sticking down intermittently, but solved it by pushing the metal bar that is part of the stabilizer all the way forward into place as far as it could go. The sticking has gone away and stayed away for months now.

    The Via configuration software works great and is easy to use.


    I like the look and feel! Software is great too

    Close, but not quite

    Such a cool board, I really want to love it and make it my new coding daily driver, but there's problems.

    The split spacebars like to stick. Something about the low profile stabs is causing the space to hang up. I've tried smaller spacebars but still sticking. There's really only one way for everything to go together, so I'm pretty sure I've got it setup right.

    In the mean time I'm using 1.75u non-stabilized caps for the spacebars and they're "fine".
