Excellent keyboard; could use some very minor tweaks Review by orev
Rating
This is a great keyboard and I'm currently feeling it's better than the Das Keyboard Pro 4 I'm coming from.

Pros: Keys feel very good; backlighting is great; removable cable changes your life when rearranging your work area. Tenkeyless is so much more comfortable when using a mouse. Doesn't have a sharp edge near the wrist area like Das does. Has a mute button as well as volume up/down. Good weight, feels solid. Stays in place on the desk with good grip. 7 levels of brightness options.

Minor tweaks: Menu/Fn key can only be one or the other with the DIP switch change. They should find a way for it to do both, such as press and release becomes Menu key, while press and hold with another key makes it an Fn key; DIP switch label should be attached to the bottom of the keyboard; Would be nice if F10 dimmed the backlight while F11 makes it brighter, so you don't need to cycle all the way to brightest before going back to darker.

Good Hardware Review by J

The CODE is a solid choice if you're looking for a higher-end, back-lit keyboard without the useless frills. It's solid, heavy, and includes a lot of practical features such as adjustable, actually-useful back-lighting, media controls and alternate layouts. No RGB rainbow light-shows, illegible typefaces and horrid gamer-aesthetic nonsense here.

The short story: one would be just as comfortable using this keyboard for work, play, committing blunt force trauma, or a healthy mix of all three. (Posted on 4/24/17)
Sturdy. Nice lighting. Questionable cable. Review by Tom
Rating
I love the weight of the keyboard. Coupled with the slightly sticky pads on the bottom, the keyboard stays right where it is supposed to. The keys are very nice.

Only one gripe: Inserting the USB cable into the keyboard was not intuitive (the markings on the opposite sides are subtle) and I feel like it's going to come undone or just break one day. It seems like the one weak point on the whole keyboard. The cable itself doesn't want to stay in the little cable channel when I lift the keyboard. (Posted on 4/20/17)
Great keyboard Review by Ian

Great keyboard! The minimal feature set is a nice change from my past keyboards that were festooned with options I never needed or used. The textured finish is a nice change from my other keyboards that show fingerprints immediately. (Posted on 4/20/17)
Great keyboard but maybe not for me Review by Dean

This is keyboard has really great build quality and consistency. Only problem I have is breaking habits from typing on chiclet keyboards for years and am not used to the height of this keyboard. Should probably invest in a wrist support. (Posted on 3/23/17)
better than expected Review by kfast

Having not used a mechanical keyboard in years, but having long considered one, I recently acquired two of them. One uses cherry blue clones and was extremely inexpensive. It's a good keyboard, especially considering the price, but being blues it is quite loud. I got the CODE 87key with brown switches and it's almost perfect for me. The switches have a great feel and are quiet enough for my needs. The LED backlighting is super. I'm using a Mac and got some custom keycaps, textured ones, for the command and function key so I can more easily and accurately press them by feel. Overall my experience with this keyboard and WASD has been first rate. (Posted on 1/23/17)
Perfect keyboard for coders Review by Jesus
Rating
The keyboard is amazing! Not giving five stars because at that price I would expect a perfect product and it is not the case. When connected to the PS2 input I need to disconnect and connect again the keyboard to make it works. I know this can be something related to my motherboard, but my previous keyboard was also a PS2 and never gave a problem. (Posted on 1/11/17)
Solid build. love the simple features and customizations. clean white led lights Review by melonsodaddict
Rating
This is my 2nd keyboard. i love the build of this. feels great, sounds great, and has a really clean look especially with the white backlight. i'm not much for the fancy RGB lighting, this simple and clean look is really my style. I also love the fact it has native support for colemak and other keyboard types as i use them during coding. something small but a big thing for me is that it comes as a complete package. it has the keycap remover (not a separate purchase) and still allows me to plug this into a ps2 port via an adapter. my previous mech keyboard required me to use a usb port and didn't come with a keycap remover, requiring me to actually make my own remover with a bunch of paper clips.

Great First Mechanical Keyboard Review by Vincent
Rating
I like the solid build quality and comfortable typing. I won't be going back to the crappy $14 commodity hardware I was on previously. No issues getting it to play nice with Linux. Price is a bit steep but eh, treat yo self.

I got the brown switches. TBH I have nothing to compare it to since this is the first proper mechanical keyboard I have bought. I think the keys are a little noisy, more of clonk than a click. Some keys are starting to squeak a bit (still new). Ill try some grease soon. Still, nice keyboard. (Posted on 12/17/16)
Amazing Keyboard, horrific price in Canada. Review by JamieSinn
Rating
Paid $300 CAD for this keyboard, but it's phenomenal. Though I will not recommend it to any other Canadians until there's a cheaper option for shipping/import fees. (Posted on 10/21/16)
