It's a trap! Review by GhettoCode
Rating
I've been slinging code for a living for 19 years and just recently broke down and decided to get a decent keyboard for the office. I loved it so much, I quickly grew to hate the chiclet keyboard I was using at home. So I had to buy another one for the house. Well, I screwed up and decided to try a different switch type for the home keyboard. Now I want *those* switches in my office keyboard too and have to keep fighting the urge from buying yet another keyboard. I really think they sprinkle crack on these keyboard before shipping them or something because they're way too addictive. (Posted on 10/12/17)
Love it Review by Cody

Yup. It's great. I don't understand why but it is very satisfying to type on (Posted on 10/11/17)
It's great except for the larger keys. Review by Ryan

The quality of the keyboard itself is great, very sturdy and the keys feel nice. My one gripe about this keyboard are the bigger keys: spacebar, tab, shift, enter, backspace. WASD keyboards uses the old style of having a Metal bracket that hangs onto the keys so that the entire key clicks at the same time.

I bought my own keys, as i love customizing my keyboards which all use the new style of having multiple switches throughout the large keys which does not fit with the WASD way. So what i'm left with is a spacebar, which is quite large, that inserts onto the WASD single switch making the entire spacebar wobbly and unstable. (Posted on 10/6/17)
Clicky and satisfying Review by JonE

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)
