update Review by Mojob

OK, I did figure out the one thing. Not sure it is worth the 1-star deduct, but here it is: That status lights are too small and not in an obvious place. I wish they would move them onto a larger vacant area and make them more visible. Picky, eh? (Posted on 4/23/18)
So far so good Review by Mojob

The keyboard does what I want: compact, great feel, satisfying click, excellent backlighting (once I figured out how to turn it on). I'm very much enjoying typing on it. I didn't get it before, but I'm starting to understand why people geek out on keyboards. But please, God, don't let me become a collector!

Giving it 4 stars because there must be something that could be better - - I Just haven't found it yet. (Posted on 4/23/18)
Best keyboard I've ever used Review by Lost Architect

The build quality on this keyboard is so far the best I've seen yet. It has some weight to it (Similar weight to my Zotac 1070 Amp!) Will definitely purchase another one when the time comes. (Posted on 3/22/17)
Noisy and I love it! Review by Murrphy

I've had my Code keyboard with Cherry Green switches for a couple of weeks now and I love it! I spent weeks trying to decide if I wanted to drop this much coin on a keyboard and I'm very glad I finally decided to. It is nice to be able to type on a quality keyboard again and I've noticed that my typing speed has increased back to where it once was (the last time I had a good keyboard). (Posted on 2/6/17)
Terrible Keycaps Ruined Product for Me Review by Jeff
Rating
(I tried to post this a moment ago, but ran into an error because I won't accept cookies on my main browser. Hopefully this time it will take.)

I bought this keyboard in November 2014 to use when I travel (since the buckling-spring keyboard I use at my office is too bulky and heavy to take with me). After a few months of moderate use, the top of the E keycap was completely worn away, and the N, O, and up and right arrow keys showed considerable wear. I put the keyboard away after that, because it was just too damned depressing to think about what I had paid for a keyboard that wore so badly.

I finally thought to contact WASD's support a few months ago to complain. They offered to replace the worn keycaps and later (after I objected) to send me a complete replacement set. But I fail to see the point of replacing keycaps that didn't stand up to moderate use with another set that were made the same way. And the thought of spending another $40 for the higher-quality "double-shot" keycaps (which are not currently in stock, makes me ill.

Love the build quality, love the feel, love the look and love the sound. I also love that everyone around me hates the sound. (Posted on 7/6/16)
High quality keyboard Review by RandomGuy
Rating
I went from a Filco Majestouch to this keyboard. The build quality was noticeably better. I noticed immediately after unboxing that it was heavy and solid. Cherry Greens are a good switch and the backlighting is crisp. I wish there were some cool backlight features like Ducky Shine keyboards.

Main downside is that it cost a fortune to buy from Canada because of the weak dollar and the import duties. (Posted on 7/27/15)
Clackety clack! The sound of happiness :-) Review by ve7tfx

You can't beat Cherry keyswitches. I grew up on the Courier 3270 clone terminals at the U of Alberta, which had the most amazing keyboards I have ever typed on. They needed reasonably good pressure to get moving, didn't 'click' on the way up or down, and when you bottomed them out it felt like you were hitting granite! :-)

The WASD CODE is the closest I come to replicating that experience. I still have the sound dampeners on mine, so the keystrokes don't quite have that solid stop at the bottom I loved, but it's close enough that I haven't been motivated to rip off all the key caps to remove them.

And at work, the dampeners also quiet things down, which I'm sure my office mates appreciate. (Yes, I made $WORK buy me one as well!)

But the other thing I love about the CODE is the dip switch setting that hard wires Caps Lock as a Control key. While I have learned every invocation of xmodmap, setxkbmap, MacOS defaults, and the like, there always ends up being something you plug into that just won't let you remap the keyboard. With the CODE, that's no longer an issue, and that's reason enough – all by itself – to buy one of these beasts.

The only downside is that if I get custom keycaps made (I want the APL glyphs) I will lose the backlit keycap legends.

THE best keyboard I've ever had the pleasure to use Review by ryancnap
Rating
So I'll start the review off by saying this is my first ever mechanical keyboard. I've used some cheapie razors, but nothing special. I'm teaching myself software development so I type alot, for long periods of time; I wanted the best of the best. I looked into topre switches but they were a little out of my price range. I bit the bullet and bought this keyboard after reading and re-reading the article on Jeff Atwood's blog. It was worth every penny and then some.

You can tell there's a steel plate in this keyboard; it's heavy, and it's solid, and that's the way I like any equipment. From the key material to the weight to flip-out legs on the underside, everything about this feels very, very solid, like you could smash at the keys for a couple days on end, then go knock somebody out with it and happily go back to typing. Even the rubber feet on the underside feel incredibly high quality.

I'm still getting used to coming from a low-profile rubber-dome laptop keyboard, but quickly getting used to (and loving) the decreased travel distance on the Code. I'm also getting used to not bottoming out the keys, but honestly both bottoming out and not bottoming out, either way the board sounds and feels GREAT. The backlight settings go from a range of incredibly, barely on low, to incredibly blindingly bright, and there's plenty of happy mediums in between.

The charger cable is sturdy, high quality, and has some really good length to it, which I was pleased about. One final note about the switches. I was debating between blues and greens, having never used mechanical switches before. I can't say anything for blues as I've never used them, but I'm so glad I got a board with green switches: it's like typing on a tank. I'm very heavy-handed when I type, I bottom out on everything I type on, sometimes my laptop keyboard sounds as loud as the 'click' from the mechanical board; if you type very heavily, get the greens. It's just at the right point where you can easily avoid bottoming out (I'm going a little slower this way but getting quicker) or you can go full force and it's got just enough resistance to not slow you down at all and feel great.

All in all this is seriously the perfect keyboard, for me anyway. No logos, no windows flag on the keys (recently placed an order for a set of two custom meta-keys), very minimalistic coloring, design, and backlighting is done right (so many other boards screw this up horrendously). Thanks wasd keyboards and Jeff Atwood, for the keyboard I've always been looking for. I'll be buying the same model with clear switches sometime soon :) (Posted on 5/8/15)
