Great, but the backlighting implementation leaves much to be desired. Review by Montreal1978
Rating
This is a very nice keyboard, indeed. The Cherry MX brown switches are great, the backlit keys are beautiful and the visual simplicity of this unassuming keyboard is nothing to be taken lightly, particularly for a mechanical keyboard.

However, I have several issues with the Code Keyboard:

1: There is no on-screen display for when the media keys (including volume up / volume down) are pressed. The system taskbar (Windows 7) volume slider doesn't even appear.

2: Adjusting to one of the 7 backlighting brightness levels is possible only in one direction with one brightness key rather than having brightness-up and brightness-down keys.

3: The special media key icons (Play, Stop, Brightness, Volume, etc.), which appear in the front of the key rather than on top of the key, are not backlit so you'll have to study where they are in order to make use of them in low lighting situations.

4: You must turn on/off the keyboard backlighting manually. The keys will remain lit even when your computer goes to sleep.

5: There's no option to set the keyboard backlighting to sleep, so that it would fade off if the keyboard hasn't been touched in a while.

6: There's no option for backlighting brightness to auto-adjustment itself based on ambient lighting.

It's unfortunate that with the handful of offered options available to users via the dip-switch controls on the bottom of the keyboard that the offered backlighting system is incomplete. (Posted on 5/2/15)
Amazing keyboard Review by Jason Barry

I upgraded from the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard to this and after typing on it for the first 10 minutes, I'm averaging 20 WPM better! This is my first mechanical keyboard and the keys feel so great to press. I also like that it has backlighting too and that it's not an ugly red or distracting blue color. I love that I can turn on Mac mode so it works better with my Mac.

The sound of the browns are a bit louder than what my Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard are, but I love the sound, so it doesn't bother me. Since I'm coming from a rubber dome keyboard, it will take me a little bit to get used to not having to bottom out the keys. After that, it should be a lot quieter.

My first few moments with this keyboard are great. I would recommend it to anybody especially if you are still using a rubber dome keyboard. (Posted on 4/21/15)
Excellent keyboard with the MX Browns! Review by Bash

Quite pleased with this keyboard. This model satisfied all of my requirements: Solid build quality with some heft and no slippage, Cherry MX Browns, individually backlit keys, 10-key pad, and easy OSX support. Couldn't be more pleased.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great coding or gaming keyboard. I wasn't interested when it was only offered in the Clear switch version, but once it came out with Browns, it became a no-brainer for me.

The backlighting is perfect. The brightness is adjustable in 7 increments, and the halo effect is subtle and effective (unlike many other keyboards on the market).

If you are planning to use this in a shared office environment, you might want to spend the extra $15 and get a set of O-rings. Because even though the Browns are a lot less clicky as others, in this keyboard they aren't exactly whisper-quiet when they bottom out.

Kudos to WASD for a perfectly designed keyboard for my needs! (Posted on 3/30/15)
What more could you need? Review by Guy

I decided to buy the WASD Code after 4 years with a Razer Blackwidow Ultimate which had tons of issues and niggles that I just got fed up with. I finally settled on the code after weeks of research and contemplation and I gotta say I'm not disappointed. The keyboard was exactly what I wanted: simple, functional and stylish in a refined understated way. The white backplate, detachable cord with attached Velcro cable tie, dip switches for customization without the need for clunky software (one of the main reasons I passed off my Razer BW), great build quality and great potential for customization thanks to the simple white leds and perfect layout.

If you're looking for a keyboard that does everything a keyboard should do and don't need any crazy frills and niche bells and whistles then this is for you.

100% recommended and have definitely found my go to keyboard brand! (Posted on 3/22/15)
Been waiting for this! Review by Matt

I have been waiting for the CODE to come out with MX Brown's for a while now, I liked the Clears but they were a bit too stiff for me to use for gaming, a week after caving and buying the clears the Brown board is announced! I was quick to purchase as they are my favourite all-round switch.

No negatives about the keyboard for me, really like the minimalistic look and clean, consistent backlighting. (Posted on 3/9/15)
