Good product, some build issues, excellent customer care Review by Chen
Rating
I bought my customized cherry brown keyboard about a year ago.

Overall I am happy with it, and I enjoy typing on it. It is a very nice object to look at (or at least it was when it was new). As very other keyboard it tends to collect all sort of muck, that I am too lazy to clean (despite the supplied tool that makes it easier).

The build quality, although good, is not perfect. When I just got it I had 2 small issues, that the excellent customer's support team helped me resolve:

1. The micro USB cable connection was flaky, and required lots of fiddling whenever I moved the keyboard.
2. The customized label on my Scroll-lock key was slightly misaligned.

For both of these a replacement part was sent to me immediately, by the superb customer's support team.

Although I like the feel of the cherry blue switches, I went with the cherry brown one and added the 0.2mm travel reduction Red O-Rings in consideration for my co-workers. The result is a compromise. It is still nice to work on this keyboard, although not as nice as my cherry blue keyboard at home. Regardless something to take into account is that the space-bar key still gives a high pitch noise on each key press, that my neighbour had to get used to.

My only real gripe with it is that the finish on some of the most used keys is starting to wear off:
- The left Control (since I am an Emacs user, it is in the default location of the Caps Lock)
- The A key
- Enter
- Left Shift

That said, knowing what I know today, I would have still make this purchase, and I am recommending this product. The customization options are unique, the build quality is good enough, and the customer's service can't be beat.

Superb Keyboard Review by Otto

Custom design is neat, and I was even able to upload my own svg file to get a custom keyboard layout design too! Very impressed with this keyboard. (Posted on 9/18/17)
Quality keyboard with one minor flaw Review by J.
Rating
This is a high quality product for a high price. It must be noted that the LED design is not great though. Recessing the LED so that when you're seated, you only see the illumination of the side of the hole instead of direct light was clever, but if you stand up by your desk and look down, you get the full brightness of the LED (and it is very bright).
Also as another review noted, the black keys all look black under ordinary light but when illuminated strongly you can see that two different tones were used. This is a non-issue, just looks strange in photos. (Posted on 9/7/17)
Satisfying Review by GABO

Love the new keyboard. I really appreciated the PS/2 adapter that came with it as well as the keycap remover. The design looks exactly like what I asked for. The minimalist look is fantastic (no logo and blank keys). Feels great. 10/10 would recommend! (Posted on 9/4/17)
Wow... just Wow .... Review by BenV

I ordered a V2 104 key keyboard with Cherry MX Clear switches with custom color and key graphics. The keyboard met my expectations completely. I love the feel of it.

I had ordered the "WASD 6-key cherry mx switch tester" and "WASD keycap, O-ring sampler kit" prior to submitting my design.

Previously I have had mechanical keyboards that required special software. I am a Mac users. The software support for Mac for new OS releases has lagged substantially. I greatly appreciate a keyboard that does not require any software for support.

Thank you WASD. (Posted on 9/1/17)
Could be better Review by Fernando

The keyboards is cool.
The silent keys really work well.

My black keys have different scales of color. It's weird, because the keyboard appears to have different colors (black, and some keys with a shade of blue).
The material of the keys could be stronger.
The letters on the keys could be stronger. It sounds that the letters will disappear in the mid-term.

My favorite keyboard Review by Lucy
Rating
This is easily my favorite keyboard. I have another mechanical, a Ducky One, which was a good $80 cheaper while being backlit. However, I can definitely say that this keyboard is worth the extra money. It is much higher quality with beautifully crisp edges to the case and the key caps. I started a new job where I type a lot and within a week of using the terrible company-provided keyboard I knew I had to change it. The good news is, this one should last me for a long, long time.

The real reason that I ended up with this keyboard is it's one of the few pre-built full-sized keyboards that is *not* a "Gaming Keyboard" but which I could get Cherry Silent Red switches in. I absolutely adore the plain reds in my Ducky One, but man oh man is that thing loud. Doesn't help that I tend to attack the keys in any keyboard I use. However, no one in my rather quiet office has said anything about my keyboard other than "What a cool keyboard!" (I did custom cap coloring) and "I had no idea you were using a mechanical keyboard!"

I highly, HIGHLY recommend doing custom cap coloring if you're at all thinking about it. I'm a little peeved that I missed the "Select Alphanumeric Layout Style" section when setting it up, as I have all of my non-alphanumerics centered but not the alphanumerics, so they look a little odd. However my custom cap coloring has them as a unique color, so it's not too bad. Mostly I don't notice it, just when I'm looking for things to complain about with this keyboard.

If you do choose to make a rainbow of cap colors, I would try out the hex picker for a custom text color. I chose a custom color and it looks great, far cleaner than I was afraid it would be.

All in all, this is a great keyboard, especially if you intend to hammer away on it for a while -- it's well worth the money in that regard! And as someone who vastly prefers the full sized layout, thank you WASD for providing me the opportunity to buy one with silent reds! (Posted on 8/31/17)
Well worth the price Review by L

Ordered a keyboard with MX Blacks as my first mechanical, upgrading after years of membrane keyboard usage. Came within a week, and after using it for a bit, I can't imagine going back. The keyboard is constructed incredibly well and feels absolutely wonderful to use, both for gaming and for typing. If you're in the market for a mechanical keyboard without all the added (obnoxious) bells, whistles, and LED lighting, this is the best you can get. (Posted on 8/25/17)
Very good keyboard Review by Wiadomo
Rating
Finally our publishing office has a good custom keyboard.
Sturdy and feels good. Color customization is perfect for our needs. Delivery time was very fast: 4 biz days to Canada.
One switch malfunctioned. Customer service was fast and courteous. Options of service were presented, we chose a new switch delivery, and it arrived within days.
When we need another keyboard for heavy use we will buy from WASD. (Posted on 8/24/17)
