Solid Build. Low Effort, Crisp, Positive Feedback Key Action . Love It! Review by Doc
Rating
For many years I've used a full-size hp wireless keyboard as secretary for two charitable organizations and thought the key action was acceptable and perhaps better than others I've occasionally "plinked on" in stores. However, the WASD web site piqued my interest enough that I bought their 6-key sample keyboard with red and blue o-rings. After reading comments by others and testing my own "mini-keyboard", with and without the o-rings, it was down to the Cherry MX Brown vs Blue. I chose the latter, because of the equally low effort but more positive feedback (both tactile and aural), dampened by the thicker blue o-rings because of their greater reduction of key travel compared with the red ones.

I love this: "ten-keyless" keyboard. It's more compact, much more solidly built and stays anchored at the proper angle with the extended back legs and rubber feet, as contrasted with my old keyboard that used to skate around. Key effort is so much less, the action is crisp (not mushy like my old one) and the soft click (not objectionable at all) provides extra feedback of successful key engagement. Key pad size is a bit smaller than I was used to, but the greater separation helps prevent accidental strikes. The small raised locator ridge on the "f" and "j" keys is appreciated. Backlit key illumination is an elegant touch and more than adequate at its lowest setting.

My only regret is not having found this professional keyboard sooner. Its solid build and other features mentioned above promise years of typing satisfaction.

Nice Keyboard Review by hohonuuli

This is very nice keyboard. I love the clicky-ness of the mechanical keys; I got the blue o-rings installed and have been happy with them.Typing feels very precise with the tactile feedback from this keyboard and the clicks don't seem to bother my office mate.

Best Keyboard Review by ben

As a Mac user that is used to having a short keyboard, this 10-keyless is simply the best. Do it. (Posted on 7/24/17)
Satisfying and gorgeous Review by robodair
Rating
+ This is a very clean, pretty keyboard
+ Typing is really satisfying - click and actuation
+ The customisation with dip switches is really useful
+ TKL design means less strain reaching for the mouse
+ Rubber feet (even on the flipdown feet) feel very sturdy

* Having to choose between a function key and a menu key isn't ideal, but it makes the keyboard standard, and I don't use the menu key, so I like it

- The keys take a little while to break in, they feel rough at first

100% advisable Review by Gizmo

This is an awesome Keyboard, you can enjoy coding, gaming or writing even during hours without pain in your arms/fingers.

Its compact "tenkeyless" design, the Cherry MX Blue Switches and the white LED Backlighting provides to the Code 87 a very professional feel. (Posted on 3/28/17)
Works great! Review by Chase

I love the clean professional look. Switching from Cherry MX Red to Blue took a little getting used to, but it's worth it. I do a fair mix of typing and gaming so this feels like a good middle ground without sacrificing much. The build quality is excellent. Definitely recommend it. (Posted on 11/17/16)
I love the keys - not such a great mac keybaord Review by Brad
Rating
I very much like the feel of the keys. I type so much more accurate and faster than I did with the Apple keyboards. I didn't realize how junky they are until this. This reminds me of the old IBM keyboards, which I now remember that I used to very much like.

In any case, I wish there was a true mac version of this keyboard. As much as I like the feel of the keys, I'm irritated every day becuase the layout is so different than the mac keyboards. This is my review after 2 weeks of daily use.

* If you use any Microsoft products on your mac, or a windows virtual machine, you are used to frequently using the FN key. The placement of the FN key is very awkward and unfriendly to frequent use.
* I haven't yet become accustomed to using the dedicated delete key. My fingers till want to hit the FN+ALT/CMD+BKSP to delete words lines. I don't even think about it because I've been using a mac keyboard for 10 years. Of course the FN key isn't there - argh.
* The caps lock key does not have any indicator that the caps lock is on
* On a mac keyboard, I'm so used to using alt-arrow keys to move around words. The right alt key is far away from the arrow keys. This is now an unusable key combination. I'm trying to get accustomed to using left-alt with the arrow keys, but can't get used to it yet.
* On the mac keyboard I'm very accustomed when using the arrow keys to navigate to pop up and hit return, which is right above the arrow keys. Not so on this keyboard. I find myself hitting an empty space. Eventually I'll get used to it, but is is very irritating for now.

Flawless Review by HughMungus

Absolutely flawless keyboard, it has just enough to be truly versatile but trims the fat that a lot of other "PRO GAMING OMGG SCRUB" keyboards have.
No drivers necessary is a huge bonus for someone trying real hard to get rid of Razer Synapse. (Posted on 9/14/16)
Best MX-Blue Keyboard purchase Review by Yegg
Rating
I used to buy more keyboards than necessary. The 87-key Code w/ blue switches is my favorite so far, and I no longer feel the need to switch. The combination of high build quality, clean styling, and slightly smaller footprint fits my needs perfectly. (Posted on 8/10/16)
The perfect backlit mechanical keyboard for Mac Review by Lee
Rating
I was looking for a backlit mechanical keyboard for my mac for quite sometime and eventually decided to go with this keyboard. There aren't many options out there for Mac's when it comes to mechanical and backlit - I didn't want to hack something together with other brands and have to worry about the backlighting working or not. At first I thought this keyboard was a steep price to pay (I'm in Canada and after conversions it adds up) but the quality of the keyboard (durability, thickness, sturdiness) puts my mind at ease now. I know I have a solid piece of equipment infront of me. As far as the Cherry MX blues - they sound amazing and they're not as stiff as the Greens. It is quite loud but I prefer that. The backlighting is great - works well during daylight and great at night with the 7 levels. The keys have a nice feel to them as well. Keyboard is heavy enough where it doesn't slide around on my desk. Highly recommend this keyboard. (Posted on 8/7/16)
