Lighting Customization

Hey there,

I like the keyboard, also that I have the choice for an upgrade unlike other brands. It's the first time having a TKL-Keyboard and wanted to try it out but also get the option to upgrade it.

The keyboard is a bit smaller over all in comparison to other ones I had before, which is a bit strange at the beginning but I got used to it pretty fast.

The sensitivity of the keys are really great (Silver). I am missing the clicky sound, but for for the longer life time its okaii. When you wear headphones it doesnt matter anyways.

My only lack I felt was the customization of the RGB lights in the "Base Camp" programm. I would like to have more options in it, for example make your own gradient with more than only 2 colors (as many as u like).
And make reactions for example if you use your color scheme and click one key, it changes the key and the row with a wave pattern to a color you could set for yourself.
Just to have more customizable options to make it YOUR own keyboard.

Almost perfect!

This keyboard is everything I was hoping for, replaceable switches, media dock and numpad and maximum flexibility. The only thing I'm realistically missing as an optional upgrade is wireless functionality, which would come with it's own set of challenges of course (namely all the LEDs as well as additional tiny screens on numpad & media dock). The one gripe I have with it are the LEDs used, they seem to have a slight red hue in my case and thus having the keys glow in white is not possible, it's very subtle but noticeable to me. Also the magnetic legs can be stacked to stupid heights, I love it - I purchased additional ones and I'm using 5 extenders and feet. 8 extenders + feet seems to be the maximum before the keyboard / numpad no longer sits on the front rubber feet but on the plastic case and thus slides around easier.
