Everest Max redefines mechanical keyboards with modularity and customization unlike any other. The Numpad can be attached to either the right or the left side of your Everest Keyboard, while the Media Dock enjoys its view from the top of the world on the left or right top side, and the magnetic Palm Rest sees you through longer sessions offering extra cushioning comfort.

 

THE MOUNTAIN PHILOSOPHY:

Everest is a revolution in choice and built on MOUNTAIN’s user-centric design philosophy: Innovation, Performance, Aesthetics and Modularity. Featuring patent-pending designs, Everest was created from the ground up to enable peak performance.

MEDIA DOCK WITH DISPLAY DIAL

A whole mountain range of controls and information on top of your keyboard. Also, the first of its kind to feature a display! Apart from easily accessible media controls, the display will enable you to monitor your system, display or switch profiles.

NUMPAD OR NOT-PAD?

If your daily routines include punching in numbers every so often, or you have an elaborate script and hotkey setup, the Numpad is for you. It was designed to fit snugly and securely to Everest and look great while serving alongside its bigger brother, either on the right or the left side of your keyboard.

CUSTOMIZABLE DISPLAY KEYS

To maximize your efficiency, modify the 4 display keys on your numpad to your heart’s desire. Choose your favorite shortcuts, macros or hotkeys and pick an image to make them your own.

GET THE EDGE FOR STREAMING

Base Camp features a tight integration with OBS Studio to enable recording, streaming, transitions and more with the push of a button. Includes custom icons for Display Keys to make sure you’ll never lose track of what’s important.

SWITCH IT UP

We selected the gold standard of mechanical switches. The modular approach makes it easy for you to replace the stock switches with any other compatible hot-swap variant, no soldering required.

EXTRA SMOOTH

Sound is a crucial aspect of every mechanical keyboard, and Everest goes the extra mile to achieve superiority. Featuring genuine Cherry stabilizers with tight tolerances, factory-tuned with Glaze GPL 205 Grade 0. Everest's stabilizers do away with rattle and noise, placing them in a league of their own.

Amazing experience, but needs more clarification on how it is built and how it comes shipped.

I choose to purchase the Everest Max package as I feel I may one day have need of all the extras. I also chose the Silent Red switches, as well as PBT keycaps.

Being able to position the numpad on the left hand side has been very useful, but the media dock needs serious improvement. The lack of proper Linux and Mac support is a real concern for anyone who'd want to utilize all that this product has to offer.
Personally I appreciate having a clock right there, but it appears to rely on a windows driver to operate correctly. I feel like issues like this should have been resolved by using an onboard battery and low-cost processor designed to run when there is no communication from a supported OS.

After much usage over the 3 weeks I have owned this keyboard, I still retain the feeling that I would describe as getting out of a nice shower, putting on fresh, clean clothes and hopping into the seat of a brand new car.

While not actually listed on the product page at the time of order, I was informed that the core/max does actually contain sound dampening material inside just like the model 60.

I was rather disappointed to find out that, despite how the site is presented both before and after placing an order, choosing PBT has a kit come separately that requires self installation. All included ABS keycaps must be manually removed and replaced 1-by-1 with the superior PBT key cap collection. A huge selling point for me was the idea that I could just plug everything in together and go, which software being optional, so finding this out when unpacking was quite a rude surprise. While plenty of customers will no doubt have no issue with this, I feel there are plenty who might decide against an extra cost if they knew.

While the back lighting is bright enough, I do notice that top row of numbers do not let the light shine through like the rest. This makes them quite hard to see. The same issue exists on the numpad.
As a side note, the status indicators on the media dock component are very small and very hard to read.

The payment was very easy to make via the website, though I was shown the wrong currency even after choosing my region. The international shipping handled by DHL Express was quite fast and handed in a professional matter. This made the experience of ordering, through to receiving, quite pleasant and welcoming.

Despite the problems with how I was mislead about choosing PBT over ABS in my order, I have no criticism of concern about this keyboard. I am rather pleased with my personal experience thus far.

While it does come at a rather high price, I would highly recommend this keyboard for anyone who can afford to indulge in such a luxury.

I hope that if you are reading this, you find my review helpful.

Yours,

CoolJosh3k

Good, but not exceptional, and with one nasty flaw

First of all, I like the keyboard and switched from a Logitech G915 to this. However, I would have loved to opt for a low profile key set, which unfortunately isn't available. Also, they keyboard is noisier than it would need to be - the same tactile switches in the G915 and the Everest produce much more noise in the Everest. The overall quality of the keyboard seems solid and durable. With my Everest Max, the media module display was broken (QA didn't catch that), but I got a replacement super quickly - that was a nice experience. What's not so nice is that I have to unplug they keyboard at least once a day as a key will definitely hang. I'm running the latest firmware and am super annoyed at this happening, especially since there are continuing reports of this problem and Mountain wasn't able to fix it yet. For a keyboard this pricy, this is really poor and leads to just a three star rating - the keyboard fails at its most basic task here, and all the fancy LED lightshows don't help if I am interrupted in my work (or worse, game ;) because of a stuck key. One more thing that could've been designed better is the four screen keys on the numpad. The elevated transparent caps somewhat spoil the cool effect as they distort the icons shown, and if you're using an icon with color, you will most likely not see a thing becaue the contrast is just poor, and at the angle you usually look at your keyboard, the display almost completely fades. The media dial is slow in reacting, so even though the idea is nice, it's a bit of a let-down, but nothing critical. The software so far has been ok (excluding the buggy firmware) and updates have worked without issues. It's good to see that Mountain actively works on the firmware with frequent updates, which will hopefully include a solution for the stuck key problem soon.
In summary, I would have kept the G915 for the better typing experience and brighter LED lighting. Unfortunately the keyboard has connectivity issues (it's cordless) and the G-keys at the left side of the keyboard drove my orientation nuts, so I'll keep the Everest for now and hope for a better firmware. @Mountain, this would earn this review another star. :)

Best gaming keyboard - 1 year of use

When i first time got keyboard i was bit disappointed because software was to buggy, but soon as i bought keyboard, mountain release software update and from then, everything was smoothly. I install pudding key caps and lighting is now awesome. Switches are responsive, silent and accurate. I like that i can put num pad on left side (can’t imagine using keyboard with right side num pad), display with wheel is really usefull and always using for clock and volume control. Overall build of keyboard is stunning, rigid and unique. I highly recommend buying this keyboard if you looking for absolute premium.

Great product, great service

Purchased right after a product start ad at golem.de in 2020 I was happy with my Mountain Max keyboard for nearly two years. Material and built quality, external modules and user experience are worth the money. Only the software could need some more love (media wheel is a little cumbersome, i.e. no memory for last setting). Then one LED broke short before RMA ending. After a short and fast error analysis (firmware update) I got a new keyboard. No further questions asked. German proverb: That I call service.
