Almost Perfect Cherry Keyboard Review by loki
Rating
Pros:
+ Build quality: Easily the best that I have seen on a cherry keyboard. Plate mounted switches are great. The body is solid and made of matte, textured plastic that doesn't show fingerprints.

+ Non-Blinding LEDs: Nice and small LEDs to alert you to caps lock or scroll lock status above the insert key group.

+ Compact body: Body is not much bigger than the keys themselves.

+ PBT doubleshot keycaps: feel great, and won't get shiny like ABS keycaps and won't have the lettering wear out with time.

+ Customizability: dip switches let you configure the keyboard, turning on things like media modifier keys.

Cons:
- Cannot swap left caps lock and left control. Can only convert left caps lock into another control key. Makes this feature slightly less useful than on other high end, capacitive electrostatic keyboards.

- No alternate keycaps for when the left caps lock has been turned into control key (ideally it would come with swapped pair control--caps lock pair, see above)

-PBT keycaps are coated with some sort of antibacterial UV coating. This reduces the nice, grainy, texture of PBT keys and has started to wear off / cloud on parts of my keyboard. I am not sure why this coating needs to be there, other PBT keycaps do not all have this.

-Slightly inconsistent symbol thickness in the doubleshot keys. All of the letters look just right, and many of the symbols do too, but some of them look slightly thinner, see "{", "}", "|", "Alt", "Ctrl".

All in all, I think this is a great keyboard, and with a few small tweaks (v3 maybe?), it could be the perfect cherry mechanical keyboard. (Posted on 8/31/16)
Quite Good Review by W4RH4WK

After all, a little expensive, but it looks solid and does what i want it to do. The only little issue i have encountered so far is that the left shift key feels a little bit off when hitting it not exactly in the center of the key.

Note that i use the ANSI layout with the wider shift key, ISO layout may not have this issue. (Posted on 6/28/16)

Fantastic Review by jesse

These are a joy to type on. I'm a software engineer and spend much of my time hammering on a keyboard. I bought two of these; one for the office, and one for home. I love them! (Posted on 4/20/16)
Great Keyboard - Not so great Keycaps Review by David
Rating
Knocking 1 star off because the overall build quality and features of the V2 are great but what I didn't like was the UV coating on the keycaps. They are grippy and good for typing but they attract dust and are difficult to keep clean. It's a real shame because the doube shot PBTs are very nice if it wasn't for the coating they use. I returned the keyboard to purchase a bare bones since I really did like the keyboard and WASD customer service is fantastic. (Posted on 4/8/16)
Impressive Build Quality Review by trhall

Purchased this keyboard with Cherry MX Red switches. The keyboard is solidly built and types like a dream. The doubleshot PBT keycaps are really nice. Pretty much a perfect TKL keyboard. (Posted on 1/29/16)
Great keyboard Review by essam
Rating
this is my first mechanical keyboard. i choose the brown switch because i read over the internet that mechanical keyboards are noisy and i don't like the noise . but once i tried the brown i love the idea and i am now ordering the blue.
i gave 4 star review because the keyboard has no option of built-in wrist pad. sure i can buy it separately (i did) but it is not like a built-in one. i had to stick a tape on the underside of the keyboard and the wrist pad to attach them together. sort of good but not great solution.

so i suggest the next version of the keyboard to have DETACHABLE wrist pad ,so that people how don't like it can remove it, best of both worlds. (Posted on 12/23/15)
High quality keyboard Review by Manuel Abeledo

Feels sturdy and, of course, it's heavy as a rock. Got mine with MX Clears, and while I'm still trying to get used to the stiffness, they're definitely growing on me. Very silent, even without o-rings. (Posted on 11/23/15)
