Very pleased Review by creebefu
Rating
I'm very pleased with the keyboard, and this is my first mechanical one too (brown).

Only 4 stars as a couple of the keys had scratches on them out of the box (right shift, space bar, left ctrl). (Posted on 10/27/14)
Love it so much Review by Sarah
Rating
I didn't think I could love a keyboard as much as this, but I do. It seriously has increased my productivity because the feeling of typing is so much more satisfying. I bought a custom one for work with blank keycaps and Cherry MX browns, and I'm obsessed with it, so 6 months later I got another one for home that duplicated everything except the color layout. The brown switches are satisfying and clicky without being absurdly loud, and I find the pressure required for activation really nice. (Posted on 10/22/14)
9/10 would buy again Review by Selen
Rating
I like this keyboard very much. It is my first mechanical, and even with MX-Clears, I annoy people around me when typing. The keyboard itself looks fantastic, because I am very good at designing keyboard layouts. I have yet to test how durable this keyboard is, but I don't really want to drop it on the floor and see for myself.

The bad thing about this keyboard is that it will cost you a lot of money. I paid more than 400€. That sounds like a lot, let me explain. On my way to the customs office, I noticed that I didn't have enough money to pay the import charges, so I went to the bank and got 200€. When I was finished at the customs office, with my new keyboard in hand, I somehow managed to lose my wallet on the way back. I got a call later from an older lady who found my ID and bank cards, but not my wallet. So someone found my wallet, removed all of my personal stuff from it, and kept the money and wallet for himself. Noice. (Posted on 9/16/14)
Wow, such feel, much fingers, very keyboard Review by Guillaume

It's my first mechanical keyboard so obviously, I'm definitely happy with it.
At first, I thought that the MX Clear could be a bit hard to press if one is unused to these kind of keyboard but they are actually pretty good for coding.
The keyboard looks and feels rather robust, definitely a quality product.

5/5 would reorder even if I can't feed my family now.

ps: I'm definitely happy with the blank version… even if I managed to make some typos as well as submit an unfinished version of this review a few seconds ago.

Switched from a Sidewinder X6 Review by Nathanial
Rating
Got this keyboard today with red switches and a few different keycaps to play around with. I am absolutely amazed at how good it feels to type on and the build quality is some of the best I've felt in a product in years. Shipping over to the UK was a lot quicker than expected as well.

Satisfied with the keyboard itself Review by Knut
Rating
Got this replacing a mechanical SteelSeries with black switches.
The keyboard itself click-clacks exactly like I want it to, and the custom design looks just as good as I imagined (also the moderate weight really makes it feel like it has meat on its bones). It arrives with the USB-cable, a PS/2 adapter, and a wire keycap puller, as pictured.

However, as a European it ended up being quite pricey. I went with clear switches, so mine was $160, and then express mail, toll tax and local shipping turned it into a $286 purchase. With the express mail it took 14 days (including weekends) for it to arrive at my local post office in Sweden.
So to you Europeans wondering if you should buy this, you can nearly double the price and ask yourself if it's still worth it. If it is, and you decide to order it, you'll end up with a product that is exactly what you ordered.

So in summary: Couldn't possibly be happier with the finished product - but the overall price bumps it down two stars.
Hope you set up shop in Europe soon, WASD! (Posted on 8/19/14)
Good keyboard Review by Ruslan

Excellent keyboard and customer support Review by Andreas
Rating
It's not only an excellent keyboard. What really impressed me was the way WASD handles customer issues. Mine stopped suddenly working after around 4 month (probably very rare; never read about such issues). I opened the keyboard (breaking the seal) and found 2 pcbs: one for the mini-usb and one keyboard-controller. USB seemed to still work. So I asked if they know a store where I can buy a replacement controller (instead of sending the whole keyboard overseas, have it repaired and pay the shipment cost again). Without any hesitation they just emailed me back, telling me they will send a replacement chip completely free of charge. Today, one week later my keyboard works fine again. Impressive. This is how you win customers. I can recommend WASD even more than I would have before this issue. (Posted on 8/4/14)
Pretty Good Review by Lally

Great keyboard Review by Stathis
Rating
This keyboard arrived today, in the UK, within reasonable time after ordering with the USPS shipping option.

Overall I am very happy with it. Key size, key spacing and curve from top to bottom are ideal for typing and anyone familiar with IBM type vintage keyboards will have no trouble typing on this one out of the box without any learning curve.

I got dark grey modifiers and light grey alphanumeric, and the colours are as I expected them to be. I would prefer if the light grey were a tad more beige, but I knew it would be more towards the grey side and is as shown in the pictures with various key colours.

However, these keyboards are expensive and are more expensive for us Europeans than the other main competitors from Taiwan (Ducky) and Germany (Das Keyboard). This is mainly due to the shipping cost, as US postal services are the worst to my personal experience. They are more expensive over same distances and apart from the expected tax, they charge a typical £15-20 "handling" fee for the customs processing (which is ridiculous if you consider the processing is done by the customs office and not them), which you have also paid again in the shipping price. This only happens with US postage companies and I have never paid anything more than the tax from anywhere else in the world. For a comparison, posting from the UK to the US packages up to 30kg costs about £60 for express service and about £15 for regular service (equivalent of USPS option).

I get in length about this, as competition 10-key less keyboards end up costing about half the price of this. Nevertheless, I bought it knowing all this beforehand so this was not a surprise to me. This keyboard is better for me than competition and fits into my hands much better. The lack backlight, which some may miss (not me), allows for proper key size and spacing. Typically, backlit keyboards have larger spacing between keys which makes it more difficult to type precisely and much more tiring, as you have to move your fingers more.

That said, backlit keyboards are far less reliable and are known to cause all sorts of problems with their USB controllers acting up all the time. I have never purchased a mechanical keyboard with backlight that hasn't had problems with repeating keys, keys not registering etc, and I've had quite a few.

This keyboard is a workhorse. It instantly felt familiar to me and I am extremely happy with it. Despite being pricey if you, like me, need to type a lot, write code etc. I believe this keyboard is worth the money if you can spare it, compared to the competition, as it is the only one with proper spacing between the keys (Actually the DAS Keyboard is also great with similar spacing, but is equally expensive, quite hard to find and no customization options apart from laser etched/printed/blank black keys). I hate black keys.

Please understand that I am not whining about the price, I knew it from the start and had the money to spare. I simply state all this to indicate that if you had a European store, I personally would buy more keyboards (a full 101 key, subsequent replacement ones, or more key customization options) and also recommend them to my friends and I suspect many people would do the same. Europe is a huge market and you could open a single warehouse in any one country with minimal cost and ship them from there. Also European delivery services are much more cheap, reliable and fast for packages of this size and weight. Even premium courier services are cheaper than US regular USPS. It is cheaper even to send from Europe to the US or Canada than from within the US.

I am extremely happy with the keyboard, but I cannot really recommend someone to buy a keyboard that costs £180 when the competition in the UK costs £90 ($300 dollars that's what a WASD costs to get it in Europe with the regular shipping, tax and "handling" fees, add 100 more for express shipping). The only thing I can say is that this is a GREAT keyboard. IF you have the money to spare and you really need a good keyboard (not talking about gaming here, there are other gaming keyboards less expensive and more functional for games but also less reliable with all the electronics), go for it without second thought.
