Clicky and satisfying Review by JonE
Rating
I bought this keyboard after hearing how satisfying it feels to use a mechanical keyboard. I liked being able to customize the keys, including adding command keys for my Mac computer I use it with. I got the Cherry Brown keys, which aren't as squeaky sounding to me as the Cherry Blue (I bought the key sampler beforehand, to help me decide which keys). I like the lack of stiffness in the Cherry Brown keys, so it's easy to type.

I also bought mac media key keycaps from WASD, so that I could substitute them for the function keys. It was easy to get those keys to work for the Mac, by using the free Karabiner software recommended by WASD. Karabiner also helped me map the f15 key to do "eject" which wasn't natively on this keyboard.

I've had the keyboard for about a week and it feels and sounds nice to use. (Posted on 10/5/17)
Solid Product, Approachable Company Review by Chris
Rating
Very solid product. Exactly what I was expecting when I purchased. Delivered on time. Been a dream to use so far.

This is my first mechanical keyboard and I found myself a bit apprehensive about purchasing one for the price point. I went through multiple passes filling out my shopping cart, with & without customizations. I settled on getting the tester for a few months, which was great to get me over the hurdle. Once I got my keyboard, I had a couple questions (as a first timer) that the support chat was able to quickly answer and help get me up and running and confident.

I would highly recommend not only the V2 87 Key but anything from WASD. (Posted on 9/29/17)
Love the custom design options Review by MichaelOryl

I built out a custom v2 87 key WADS keyboard and received it only a few days later. I did some custom layout and fonts on the keys, which I really enjoyed doing. I do find that the size of the graphics you can put on the keys did not exactly match the size of the templates, though, and some of the default font layouts exceeded the template boundaries, even though I can now see that they easily would have fit.

I also found it difficult to correctly gauge the color of the keycaps using the online system, though I am still happy with what I choose since I spent a lot of time looking at photos that WASD has posted to Instagram and Flickr.

I opted for the thinner o-rings on Cherry MX brown switches. Pricey at $25, but it really knocks the edge off of the sound compared to regular browns bottoming out.

Pricey is another way to describe the keyboard as a whole, but I got what I wanted. Entirely custom keys and layout. The function and printscrn/scrlock/pause keys don't match up with my Mac properly, even in Mac mode, but that's something I can live with.

In the end I'm happy. The keyboard is solid, looks good, and is entirely mine. (Posted on 9/28/17)

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)

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
Rating
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
Rating
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)
