Works great Review by Nick

I was very impressed by the customization options. I used a keyboard layout for Mac that I found on GitHub, and it came out perfectly. My fingers feel like they are flying on this keyboard. I'm not sure that they really are, but it feels that way.

A few smaller caveats. (1) The keyboard has very sharp corners. My left hand in particular is constantly jabbing into one of them. (2) It's taller than a typical keyboard, so some kind of palm rest is necessary. I've tried the rubber one that WASD sells, and was not impressed, so this is a work in progress. (3) It's loud. I mean, the reviews mention that it's loud, but even with the 2mm O-rings, it is *loud*. Definitely not for an environment that you're sharing with others. (Posted on 9/20/17)
Well-Built; Customization is Perfect Review by powellb

I generated my own overlay file to make the keys look exactly as I wanted. I was hesitant, but took the plunge, and it came out perfect. The keyboard is solid and well built. The typing feel is exactly what you expect for the switches you choose. I may have to order another with different switches for my given mood of that day... (Posted on 9/7/17)
Great! Review by Alex

Hi from Russia!
Keyboard is great, spend couple hours to make custom layout, choosing fonts and aligning symbols :) It’s best keyboard I ever had! (Posted on 9/3/17)
Really good for that WOW factor! Review by Devan

I got my customised WASD keyboard last week, and been inundated with tons of great comments whenever anyone sees it. Loved that I could customise it down to the 'nth' degree. It arrived all set up exactly as I expected, and the only thing I had to do was to change the DIP switches to suit a Mac layout, and then swap the 'Command' and 'Alt' keys around as I prefer them that way for ease of use. Highly recommend these keyboards to anyone that want a custom mechanical keyboard. (Posted on 9/2/17)
Mostly Excellent Product Review by Parth

This is my first mechanical keyboard in this price range. I love the customization options available for this keyboard. You can quite literally customize everything you could imagine!

My board arrived within the expected delivery time frame, which is always a plus. The board and keys are also exactly as I customized. It feels great to type on and is a major upgrade from my previous keyboard. I use it for both personal and work usage.

The only issue I face is that the board sometimes becomes unresponsive (maybe unrecognized) by my machine. The keyboard will not register any keystrokes for some time and after repeatedly unplugging and plugging in the usb cable, it will start up again. I've tried two different USB cables and a few different ports. This happens maybe once or twice a day so it is not a major issue, but it is quite annoying when it happens. I mainly use my personal Ubuntu machine, but sometimes switch over to my Mac. Since I do not use this keyboard as often with my Mac as I do with my Ubuntu machine, this complaint/observation really only applies to my Ubuntu machine. Not exactly sure what the root cause of the issue is, but any insight would be appreciated.

Other than that, this is an amazing keyboard with excellent build quality.

Perfect for a Beginner Review by David

This keyboard is my first custom mechanical keyboard. I have used a Razer keyboard at home for several years and finally got one for work as well. After two weeks of using it as a programmer day in and day out I don't know why it took me so long.

I chose WASD because I found the site approachable and easy to understand. I also chose it because I wasn't looking to do any assembly myself as a hobby as much of the online community does. I was able to get a beautiful and functional keyboard quickly and I couldn't be happier. (Posted on 8/29/17)
Just buy one already Review by Richard

I'll keep this short and sweet.

Two things I love about this keyboard/company:
1) The keyboard is extremely customizable. You can basically make this keyboard exactly how you want it. From the design to the switches, almost anything is up for customization.
2) WASD's customer service is fantastic. Big shout outs to Thuy and Skyler. They were helpful, friendly, and professional.

Considering how much a quality mechanical keyboard costs (generally around AT LEAST $90, though some go for more than $240), paying $150 to make your keyboard just how you want it is quite reasonable. I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase, and I have to assume that you will be too. (Posted on 8/27/17)
Good Review by mgsxx

WASD is the only place I know where I can get a good keyboard without numpad and with Cyrillic letters to boot. I'm not a carzy fan of mechanical keyboard per se. I'm used to notebook-like keyboorad and I have an Apple keyboard. It's good, but arrow keys are not good enough. So I decided to give a shot at mechanical keyboards.

Overall I'm satisfied (well, maybe MOD-L 45g switches are a little too light... will try Cherry Clear next time I think), the keyboard works. But I was somewhat disappointed with quality of WASD work. It's supposed to be impeccable premium service, right? Then why one of the white keys is not so white but yellowish? Why on one of the sides of the keyboard the top and bottom parts are not fixed together and wobbly? None of these issues affects typing but, you know, affects impression. Hence only 4 starts.

Phenomenal Review by Aaron

It gives me a reason to wake up in the mornings, get to work to get typing! This is my first mech keyboard and I love it. Cherry MX Blues, 2mm dampeners, custom colors, and custom keycap legend design. It has a satisfying click with no clacks, a great feel, solid construction, and their work on the custom printing is perfect. I'm beyond pleased. This keyboard will last me for years to come. I may only get a new one when the V3 line is released!

WASD's customer service is great. Both times I used the chat feature on the website, I got helpful, informative responses with seconds.

For mac users, I had printed on my Function keys the mac hotkeys for volume control, screen brightness, etc. Out of the box, those keys did not map like expected, but no worries. There is an open source project Karabiner that allows you to finely control key bindings: https://github.com/tekezo/Karabiner-Elements/blob/master/README.md

As of 2017-08-25, under Project Status, you can download the latest dmg. Install it and you can control all your key bindings.

To wrap up, great product! Thanks WASD!

PS: Final thought: I almost never write product reviews. For me, that I took the time to write this one speaks volumes about the product. Plus, it's a pleasure to type it on my custom V2 keyboard! (Posted on 8/25/17)
