Awesome travel keyboard Review by Rick
Rating
Cherry MX Blue (I like the click)
Modern Layout with function layer
Black Caps

I went kind of vanilla in my options as this was just meant to be a keyboard to lug back and forth to work in my bag. It has replaced the Logitech 710 I was keeping in my toolbox at work for the same purpose.I knew the switches would be perfect for my uses and style what I didn't expect was how much I fell in love with the weight. This little 61 key has the same or likely greater weight than the aforementioned gaming 104 key this along with the small footprint and rubber feet makes it stick rock solid to whatever surface I end up typing on. There is no chasing the keyboard across the table and the lack of movement has noticeably improved my typing accuracy.

On the switches there have been hundreds if not thousands of reviews of the entire Cherry MX line and the blues specifically, so I won't dwell to much on them. My home keyboard has Reds in it I much prefer the satisfying click and tapping of the blues. The biggest difference comes in the mounting there is noticeable flex in the switches in my other keyboards the metal mounting of this leaves no room for such sloppiness.

The design process was simple enough I spent the better part of 2 weeks playing with designs and figuring out all the style options I wanted. In the end I went with something basic and rather plain but decided to get a new set of caps in the future once I get my personal flow dialed in with the standard caps. The multiple layers was a feature I did not expect to put to much use but I find I'm slowly populating the layers with desired actions and specific keys. This keyboard has changed my entire workflow and for the better, the simplicity and sparseness helps me focus on the task at hand.

Ordering was a breeze and shipment was fast enough. Shipping pricing was a bit high, but not out of line compared to other companies, I blame Amazon for this particular gripe. I ordered Early Saturday morning and still had my keyboard in hand Thursday of that week.

There are obviously other similar choices out there but I have to say I have quite fallen for this little keyboard and have every intention of picking up 1 of the bigger keyboards, when it comes time to replace the 1 on my desktop. It hasn't made me a better programmer nor has it improved my typing what it has done, is give me a consistency to work hard and improve myself. (Posted on 9/22/17)
This is my 4th Mechanical Keyboard Review by JR

I ordered this (shipping to Ontario, Canada), and it came in within a few days. A huge prop to the WASDkeyboards team for getting that in so quickly. This is my 4th Mechanical Keyboard, I absolutely love it. I've been shopping at WASD Keyboards since 2013, and I've never been let down by them.

As for the keyboard itself. No issues, no bouncing. It's actually way quieter than my other keyboards. I don't bottom out though, so I can't completely say that it is a quiet keyboard without. It's absolutely a solid build. The aluminium base delivers a completely different sound.

The fact that I don't need to tweak the software to type in Dvorak is absolutely amazing. I can finally share my computer without having to change any settings, just a charge in keyboard if need be.

I'm finally rid of capslock, as awesome as capslock is; it is not my friend, nor has it ever been.

The layers are going to increase my productivity. I don't think I can really say anything else about that.

I can go on for days, but I'll leave that to forums.

Thank you WASDkeyboards team for another stellar product! (Posted on 9/12/17)
Excellent Keyboard Review by Randall

The build quality is astounding and the programmability adds another dimension of keyboard utility. I love the feel of the Cherry MX clears. They are beautifully responsive and the tactile feedback is as expected. I am more than pleased with the keyboard. I'll probably buy another one if they ever got a custom version that could be backlit. (Posted on 9/7/17)
Amazing.... Beyond what I expected Review by PurpleReptar
Rating
The keyboard is study and very amazingly made. The colors that I chose were even more vivid once I saw them on the actual keys. Contacted support once with a simple question and was immediately helped. 100% recommend this keyboard if you are looking for an amazing customized individual 60% keyboard. I wish they did have the option for different materials for the keycaps and the option to add a braided cable now that website offers them. But hey still amazing. (Posted on 8/31/17)
The product is perfect but prepare to retrain mod muscle memory Review by kbrown
Rating
Fantastic quality. I will say that using the arrow keys via a modifier is a little harder than I was expecting. Certain key combos that are already mod heavy such as select to word boundary (shift + option + left/right) become very hard. Guess I need to continue to work on my muscle memory. (Posted on 7/14/17)
Awesome Review by Kenta

First the bad: Only gripe I have is that the case color is just black. Not a huge issue but I wish there was more colour options. The black case actually blends in with my black desk surface so it's not a huge issue and it's a fairly neutral color anyway. This is my first 60% keyboard and before I was using a Corsair K95 which was overkill for my needs so I decided to pick this bad boy up. I themed my key cap colours to look like a super famicom and I've been continuing to make little tweaks here and there to make it just the way I want it. I also highly recommend WASD Keyboards' custom printed keycap singles. It added a whole new dimension of customizability to my keyboard and could not be happier with the purchases. Customer support was also really great at answering any questions I had about the products. You guys rock! (Posted on 6/19/17)
Fantastic! Would Buy Again and Again!!! Review by RichardB

This is my favourite keyboard to use! I love the small and compact design. The buying process was exactly as described - very smooth and my custom design was EXACTLY how I imagined it to be in real life :) such a cool idea WASD Keyboards. I know where I will be buying my next keyboard from...

Love my VP3 Review by Maxi

Great price for fully custom keycaps on a great board. Fast shipping. MX clears are slightly heavy but I will probably get used to them, and they sound great while still being pretty quiet. Extremely satisfied. (Posted on 6/5/17)
First Mechanical Keyboard Review by dhs

VP3 61
Cherry MX Green
Naked Keys (no letters / numbers / symbols)

Pro:

- appears to be of very high quality
- the base is sturdy and has the feel of quality
- the feel and sound of the keys is great
- the custom cable is also high quality
- great attention to detail

Con:

- a few of the larger keys have a little audible 'ring' or extra vibration

I don't have a lot of experience with other manufacturers or products so I don't know if there are better products but it seems this would be hard to beat unless you were looking for something highly specific or had very stringent requirements of some kind. I am still getting used to the tactile feedback (great!), the naked keys and the lack of distinct arrow keys.

The best thing I can say about it is that I would purchase it again. Given what I know now I might make a different decisions on the type of keyboard, number of keys, naked vs. printed, etc. but that would purely be my preferences and not in anything lacking in the quality of the product itself.

Great product. Looking forward to digging into the layer programming and maybe purchasing some custom keycaps.

Might get another one (with less click) for work! (Posted on 6/2/17)
Nicest thing I've touched today. Review by threeze

I had been debating getting a WASD keyboard for ages and ages, and one drunken night I put together a design I thought was wicked cool. And then proceeded to not order it or save my template. So, whilst sitting in a contracts meeting at work, I tried to re-create the design, making sure to remember the Amiga key. And lo, my new favourite thing was born.

Payment was taken, shipping was quick, and setup was easy. I am amazed at how quickly I trained myself on the hotkeys - in fact, going back to my other keyboard(s) is dangerous to my code and writing!

Highly recommend this product to anyone who wants a lovely to touch, look at, and use keyboard (I went for the MX Cherry Clears, and you might want to too). (Posted on 5/29/17)
