Goodbye Dimple Landfill! Review by Synerdata Systems
Rating
Back in the 1970's, keyboards were real, and they were recognized to be half of the most important part of a biological human user interface, the other half being the screen. Back then they were made to last, with actual brush switches in each key, and refined for human touch, to be healthy and not require muscles to enter data.

I waited a long time to get a real keyboard in the 21st century, let alone one with the exact light touch that my genetic hands require. How tired I have grown as a prolific writer, of having to throw away cheap or expensive dimple keyboard landfill every couple of months, when they wear out, and seize up, and I was tired of not being able to get one with a soft touch which does not hurt the fingers.

While they were sold out of the US keyboard layout for Cherry Red MX switches, I was able to get one in the UK layout, and then just order four custom keycaps to make it into a US keyboard layout.

The personal service in adjusting my order to ensure I got what I needed was excellent, and delivery was quick. Finally I have a real keyboard on my modern computer, and one which is designed for humans to type upon, rather than being designed to wear out and make money for those harming people's hands with dimple keyboard garbage.

The keyboard is without compare in quality and build, and the feel to type upon it finds me unable to stop typing. The feel of the soft springs in the Cherry Red smooth linear switches is gorgeous, and the 4mm dampers perfectly quiet the keyboard and soften the impact. Some might think paying $270 for a real keyboard is expensive, but I am eager now to order one with the Cherry Brown MX switches, just to ensure I have a spare on the shelf, for I never want to use another dimple keyboard again, and due to the quality of WASD keyboards, the one I already have may last me for the rest of my life, as it is.

The keyboard is the most important part of the computer, for it is the part one physically touches, and the WASD keyboards ensure the highest quality typing experience. I really appreciate that WASD is addressing this extremely important market need, for those who desire a real and highest quality keyboard for their health and quality of life experience while using computers.

My thanks to WASD for rescuing computer users from dimple keyboard landfill.

Nearly perfect Review by Falco

I've got a keyboard with blue mx-switches - perfect for writing and not as loud as I though. Only minor complaint is the wrong color of one of the letters on the keycaps.

Great Minimalistic Keyboard Review by Tommy
Rating
My new black wasd keyboard was exactly what I was looking for. Simple, brandless and only having the most crucial features. Looking for my first mechanical keyboard, it was difficult to find a keyboard with the right layout and customisation and wasdkeyboards made it easy for me, and for a fair price too.

Also, thank you for supporting Axiom Esports! (Posted on 8/14/14)

You will code differently … Review by Granjow

… or at least with less autocomplete because typing feels nice again.

I'm using the V2 with Cherry brown switches and the blue dampeners. Both because I'm working in a multi-person office. I already have a daskeyboard with blue switches at home, and both the clicky switches and the missing dampeners make it way louder. The dampeners have two effects, first they obviously make key presses nearly inaudible (except for the space key which does not have any dampeners!), and second, typing is softer if you press the keys to the bottom because, instead of hitting plastic on plastic, you just squeeze the rubber ring a bit.

The keyboard is not completely silent though. As said, the space key is not damped. Plus, when releasing the keys quickly, there *is* a clicky sound when the switch is stopped by its plastic case.
Over the last week, nobody has complained about the noise yet though, and I find people talking nearby much more distracting than keys.

Custom colours are great too. Although they are a bit in vain. When I started using this keyboard, I realised how little I actually look at it. But it really looks good :(

All in all, although shipping the keyboard to Switzerland was nearly as expensive as the keyboard itself, I would buy it again. It totally pays out if you are working with it all day.

Side note: The micro USB cables from WASD Keyboards are the only ones I have found so far which snap in, also on my mobile phone. (Posted on 4/22/14)
Beautiful Review by GioDoe

It is my first mechanical keyboard since the early 90s, when I used some very nice IBM or Olivetti keyboards. For the first time since then I have re-experienced the nice feeling of the loud keys. Shipping to Europe was very fast, although very expensive. I bought WASD mainly because of the customisation features. I use a Mac with Windows, and there are no other options around with an Italian layout and the double legends for the two OSs in the right places. I have been typing on it for half an hour and I am already hooked. I can happily bin my old Apple keyboard (Posted on 1/23/14)
Excellent quality in the layout I needed Review by Pierre

I got the V1 about a year ago.

The deciding factor was that there are very few options for mechanical keyboards with the Swiss (CH) layout. One of the only options was the WASD, thanks to the customization they offer. I didn't really care about the other customization options (colors, custom text on the keys etc.) and I would not have paid just for it, but it was fun and it's quite unique (if slightly nerdy) to have a keyboard with your name written on the space bar and little llamas instead of windows icons on the win keys...

The build quality is amazing, it's solid, stable, really nice to type on (got the cherry browns).

It's not cheap, especially if you add the shipping costs to Europe, but definitley worth it for me. And I expect to still be using it 10 years from now. I might even get another one, maybe the 88, to use at home (the one I have is at the office).
