A Mixed Bag Review by Mx.Reese
Rating
The CODE keyboard is a very high quality keyboard overall. I greatly appreciate being able to have the modifier keys in Mac order to match my work laptop. My main gripe is that the CODE keyboard overrides my keyboard setting in Mac OS to rebind the Caps Lock key to Escape. As a Vim user, that the CODE can't replace Caps Lock with Escape as one of the DIP switch functions used to be my biggest issue with it, but that it also prevents me from rebinding the Caps Lock key to something useful in software is mildly infuriating. And no, I don't consider having an extra left-Control 1 key away from the normal one to be of any use whatsoever.
Still, I don't know of any other mechanical keyboard that can swap between Mac OS and standard modifier key orders and the return shipping cost is hefy enough that I'll just live with the dissatisfaction for now. (Posted on 5/12/18)
Great typing keyboard. Review by Zipgard

Great keyboard for typing. Size and angle is terrific. I would recommend to anyone looking for a serious but compact keyboard. Sometimes you get what you pay for! (Posted on 2/5/18)
fantastic keyboard Review by Daniel

fantastic keyboard. may need some additional lubricant on the stabilized key (e.g spacebar, shift key, etc). Customer support is phenomenal. Highly recommend buying this keyboard and in general purchasing through this company. Thanks for a great product and service! (Posted on 1/24/18)
Very nice keyboard Review by BK

This was my first mechanical keyboard so I'm relatively new to the various switches and types of keys, etc. I like the feel of this keyboard and the typing experience is various nice. The feel of the brown keys with red o-rings is good. The noise is kept to a minimum, just a nice subdued thumping sound as a type. After using the keyboard for a while a few things that I didn't like were eventually I decided I don't think I like the "bump" of the brown key switches. I have since switched to the linear feel of red switches which I think I prefer. I also don't like the width of a TKL keyboard. Even with the keypad removed I find I'm having to reach out too wide with my mouse hand to feel comfortable. I've since switched to a 75% keyboard that does away with the navigation on the right and integrates it into a smaller package which I think I prefer. So overall I think my dislikes are just personal preference. I liked the backlit keys and although I've found I prefer the PBT keycaps I don't mind the ABS keycaps on this keyboard at all. They have a nice feel and they sound solid. As I've read in some reviews I did notice some "pinging" from they keyboard when I'd hit certain keys and that was slightly annoying. I'm sure I could have gotten used to it but I'm glad I didn't have to. Overall though, a very nice keyboard and I wouldn't have been sad if I stuck with it. I'm happier with the new one that I purchased that satisfies more of my personal preferences as mentioned above though. (Posted on 11/16/17)

Fantastic Keyboard Review by Sidd K

Overall this is a fantastic keyboard and typing on it is just a joy. And looks like it made from sturdy materials. Best of all the rubber feet on this is solid, hate it when my keyboard slides around.

Now there is a slight "springy" noise when some of the keys bounce back up, but it doesn't bother me.

I would definitely recommend this keyboard. (Posted on 9/24/17)
Exceptionnal Review by Nic

I love just about everything on this keyboard. Typing feels incredible, back lighting works great. I really don't feel like the lowest lighting setting is too bright as some mentioned. I've got nothing to say against the keys. The keyboard stays firmly in place, it is easy to setup and works like a charm. I need to get used to typing a bit "higher" than before but that's it. Highly recommended if you're looking for a no-frills, small size, high quality mechanical keyboard. (Posted on 8/29/17)
Pobody's Nerfect Review by Paul
Rating
OK, no one is going to make a perfect keyboard but this one comes close. I had previously been using a Das Keyboard 4 Professional (Cherry MX Brown). I will miss the integrated USB 3.0 hub on that keyboard but I'm willing to give up that convenience.

However, one thing I am not happy about is the internal structure of this CODE 87-Key. Typing on this causes a slight metallic ringing of some sort of spring(s) internally. My Das has a nice, dead sound which emits only the sound of the switches and the keycaps being mashed down. No ringing.

Otherwise, this feels really nice, has a good form factor (bezel is easier to work with, more compact being a ten-key-less model, etc.) and it's groovy that it's illuminated in case the power goes out in this office building.

I really wish it didn't sound like a cheap piece of crap with all this ringing that goes on while I type. :( (Posted on 8/28/17)
Liking this keyboard a lot Review by Ed
Rating
I purchased the Code 87 key with Cherry MX Browns. It is my first mechanical and first with backlighting, so I really have nothing to compare it to in that respect but it's incredibly nicer than the Lenovo Pro I had been using. Typing seems faster and easier. It is also my first tenkeyless; I don't really miss the numpad esp. because the mouse is now closer to me which is more ergonomically correct.

The only complaints I have are 1) the sharp edges; rounded would be nicer, and 2) the 'barely there' (lowest) backlight setting is too bright for me even in the daytime. I toned the lighting down by stuffing little wads of toilet paper under the key caps :-) Which also gave the benefit of quieting the key clicks a bit. (Posted on 8/27/17)
Excellent Keyboard for Typists Review by Wayne

This is an ideal keyboard for anyone that does a lot of typing of any kind -- coding or otherwise. It requires no special software on the computer. Quality and feel are excellent. (Posted on 8/27/17)
