Really nice keyboard Review by Nodoyuna
Rating
Tengo una pequeña empresa en Madrid, España, y estos teclados son la mejor elección: elegantes, duraderos, adaptados a gustos diferentes y muy bien terminados. He comprado 3. Dos mx-blue y un mx-green. Quizás el green es un poco duro, aunque hay quien lo prefiere así. Los mx-blue me parecen perfectos. Por otra parte, el tema de la personalización de las teclas en un plus muy a tener en cuenta. Casi, casi, perfectos. Y no digo perfectos porque "siempre hay alguien más listo que tú" :)

I have a small business in Madrid, Spain , and these keyboards are the best choice: elegant , durable, adapted to different tastes and very well finished . I bought 3. Two mx- mx- blue and one mx-green. Perhaps the green is a little hard , although some preferred it. The mx -blue is just perfect for me. Moreover, the customization of the keycaps is a nice plus. Almost perfect. And I do not say perfect because " there is always someone smarter than you " :) (Posted on 5/12/15)
Friendly company, fantastic keyboard Review by Rekov

This keyboard works phenomenally, so I shall have to turn to nitpicks. There are two things I would do differently, were I selling this keyboard. The color of the LEDs needs to be customized. I couldn't bring myself to color any of my keys, since I didn't want a red theme, and most everything else would have clashed with the lights.

I would also move the lights slightly higher on the keyboard, as they cannot be seen over the numpad when I'm slumped low in my chair.

While this isn't related to the keyboard itself, I was happily surprised to find a handwritten response in Swedish to my note when ordering the keyboard. This is the kind of thing a person never forgets, and will relate every time they're asked about WASD. (Posted on 4/28/15)
Worth the cash! Review by xcox
Rating
I will admit, I was worried about spending so much money on a keyboard (plus $50 for shipping.) That I could only judge on reviews and a few videos online (even though they were from people I trust.)

However I can say this was definitely worth the money. The quality of the keyboards frame is above what I expected and has a nice amount of weight to it (won't be sliding around your desk.) great quality rubber grips on the bottom of and deceit stands that offer reasonable additional height. With the the quality of Cherry MX switches as well the keyboard is nothing short of top quality.

The key-caps again are amazing, colours on the caps are great and the fell very smooth, with very few defects (or extra nubbins) on the caps themselves.

Additional features such as the dip switches in the back (offering a lot of functionality) and the inbuilt cable routes are very handy. The provided key-cap puller does what it should :D

Finally I had no problem with WASD themselves and would happily buy another product from them again. (Posted on 4/18/15)
Just what I wanted. Review by Kyrill

I was searching for an easy to customize and simple/minimalistic mechanical keyboard for my workspace.
This is just perfect. Also, no other site offered a swiss layout.
Build quality is superb, and the whole thing feels solid and good.
Just the led lights for numlock/capslock/scrolllock could be a bit higher.

Thank you for offering such an amazing service and product. Definitelly recommending this for everyone who wants a simple and easy to customize keyboard. (Posted on 4/13/15)
Great Review by NuTTyX

I order a 105-key keyboard from Spain. Delivery from US to Spain was rather quick, but customs were a nightmare (almost a month since the product arrived at the airport until it was delivered to my home, also added a good amount to the final price). I know that customs' problems are not on WASD's hands, but would it be too much to ask for a shop in Europe? ;-)

I customized everything on my keyboard, from the keycap colors to the layout using a custom font for the keys. Everything is just perfect. Well, status LEDs are a little too much brigth for me, but I just simply avoid looking directly into them.

I have been testing the keyboard for over a month before writing this review, so I can properly talk about the product. This is my first mechanical keyboard and I love the feel. I chose brown switch with red dampeners and it is less noisier than my previous keyboards. Also the keys slide smoothly (my previous non-mechanical keyboard kept getting some keys stuck if you didn't press them perfectly vertically)

If you want a great-quality and unique keyboard it is worth it. (Posted on 3/26/15)

The reviews and star ratings speak for themselves.

It is a must and feels great to type with. The customisation is brilliant too. Doubt I'll be switching keyboard again. (Posted on 3/8/15)
Very nice Review by tarrafal

This keyboard is simply perfect especially because you can design it the way you want .

As this is my first Cherry switch keyboard can't really compare it with another one, but Cherry MX is Cherry MX in any keyboard I guess.

Comparing to my IBM M2 mechanical, this is much easier to use and much softer and quieter and as a consequence much faster to write on.

I love the cable routing possibilities and the build quality seems sturdy enough to pass it down to my grandchildren, well done. (Posted on 3/3/15)
keyboard is a pleasure, good communication but possibly a weak cable Review by Adarion
Rating
So it is time to type a review on this very keyboard about it. I own it now for roughly 5 months so that qualifies me to write something about it I guess.
I chose the 105 (sadly 102 is not available) key international version. After having tested a little assortment of various Cherry keys here from WASD I decided to have it with brown ones. They seemed a compromise: not too much noise (if that is of importance), good for long typing, but possibly also for gaming.
I also loved the green ones but I think the greens are only offered for the Code keyboard yet? (correct me if I am wrong here). You can see my review about the greens there.
The brown type has a tactile bump, but no click and is relatively lightweight in terms of key pressure. The white ones, also a possibility seemed... sticky. You probably must experience this to know what this "stickyness" means or feels like. It's not really obvious but still.

My intention was typing a lot of text, to be exact my PhD work and papers (publications). Furthermore, for later, it would be nice if it would also serve as a universal keyboard (typing, gaming, whatever). And I think the brown switches manage that quite well. Also: You can desolder your key switches if you want and add e.g. some greens in places where you would like them. Or have an all white or blue and clicky one, but solder reds or browns on keys you press very often or you might use for gaming (wasd, cursors, ctrl and so on). WASD offers a lot in terms of flexibility here.

So I prepared my own SVG layout with the aid of the templates offered by WASD. That was very nice because thus you can design your own keycap prints. I did not deviate too much from the original layout. But now I have a nice colourful penguin (Tux, of course) on my Return key. Ha!

Handling and communication with WASD were smooth.

It took some time to make it (and ship internationally) but that was in a reasonable time frame. They keyboard came as intended and with cord (PS/2<->USB, USB to micro USB), keycap puller and ... I forgot what else. Well it was complete and ready to use. I also had ordered a 17" wrist pad with it.

On the backside is a great blessing where you have a kind of DIP switch(es) that control some behaviour, like switching off those pesky MS-Windows keys. :) You can check the website for more informations what these switches can do. It can be very helpful.

Typing is a pleasure. Okay, I had to get used to the relatively low pressure point. I grew up with things close to IBM Model M, so this was a bit unusual for me. You have to be more exact when you type since you easier mis-press a key. But you can learn that.
N-key rollover works like a charm. Status LEDs are okay, the radiation angle is rather narrow. They will be blinding in the dark once you put your face 0...20° over them (speak: quite directly) but otherwise they'll just be a mild red glow in the dark.
The keyboard stands firmly on the table and seems like an overall solid build.

My only complaint is the cable. The good thing is: It is detachable on both sides. That means also on the keyboard, like the old IBMs. But that might have been the culprit here. I handle things with care, but somehow I might have managed to bend the internal contacts of the micro USB side. Or the cable broke internally (which would quite surprise me). At the end of the day the keyboard would stop working after 1 or 2 months of medium use. In the beginning it was more like a loose contact, and moving the cable, reinserting it would help. But then it stopped altogether. That was quite sad.
The problem was also that 1.8 meter (or longer) USB <-> micro USB cables aren't that common. So it took me some time to organize a new one. Luckily I had a 15 cm cable AND a USB hub that I placed so close to the kbd the mini cable would be long enough to reach it.*
Luckily the keyboard side of the micro USB port did not seem to have received any damage. Now I have a full length cable again and things work.

So besides the cable that broke so early I am fond of it and typing on it every day, sometimes for several hours per day until I need a pause. But the lightweight keys don't tire my fingers so quickly, so I guess it was a good idea to go with the brown switches.
It was quite a lot of money (esp. for me as a student below poverty line) but I'd say that was money well spent. Keyboards, (mouse) and displays are your main I/O and when you work a lot with them they should be of good quality.


* I did not want to use another of my USB extension cables. That also adds one more connection that could exhibit a possibility for loose contacts over time. (Posted on 2/26/15)
Great Keyboard a pleasure for my fingers.... Review by Mikeloto

I got finally today the beast, really like typing on that piece of art, quality of the old days with the look and behavior of the current days....

Keep good job guys... !!

My switches are green without dumpers and really now my code sessions seems more important than before.... the bytes get out to the screen just after the sound get out from the back of the keycap.....

Cheers,
Mike (Posted on 2/20/15)
10/10 keyboard would TAK TAK TAK with Review by Gary

As I needed a new keyboard, I asked my friend, "what mechanical keyboard would you recommend?", to which he replied with this very type of keyboard.

It's very much worth the cost, even better is the custom designs you can have printed onto the keys and the satisfying click from typing with the keys. I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good mechanical keyboard! (Posted on 2/19/15)
