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.
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 Krytox GPL 205 Grade 0. Everest's stabilizers do away with rattle and noise, placing them in a league of their own.
GET PREPARED AT BASE CAMP™
Your Everest is supported by our Base Camp™ software, designed and developed from the ground up to equip you with all the tools you need for your ascension. Base Camp™’s primary design goal was balancing ease of use and flexibility, enabling you to set up your Makalu mouse precisely the way you want it, without being in your way.

So much potential at ones fingertips

The Hardware
---------------
I have to start this review off by saying that the Everest Max is my first mechanical keyboard and was in itself the gateway to the mechanical keyboard community as a whole. Coming from a typical Logitech G510 board, what intrigued me most about the Everest Max was the fully modular approach. Don't need the Numpad now? Just pop it off! Want your Media controls somewhere else? Or none at all? You're in charge! Even when watching different reviews of the Everest, I got the feeling that during the conceptualization-phase of this board, they just said "Yeah, let's add that feature, too!" to every idea they had. Macros Keys with little Screens in them. Added! Detachable cable? Added! Clipped Stabs, sound-dampening foam and magnetic feet in different levels? Added, added and added. Hot-Swap-Sockets? Added with individual RGB Lighting!
-This keyboard is so full of little details that show whoever designed they board was really passionate about what they are doing. They thought of every last bit to optimize convenience and flexibility, which I highly appreciate. This approach makes this keybaord fairly future proof as you can just change what ever you may not like at that point. Plus the build quality is realls something. This board feels so much better than anything plastic-y I have ever owned. The only downside that I can find is the fact, that it only accepts plate-mounted switches with 3 legs and not PCB-mounted ones with 5 legs, which means you might need to clip your switches. But as I don't wanto use solder-pcbs any time at all, that is not much of an issue for me.
So, 10/10 for the hardware here!

The Software
---------------
This is sadly the most lacking part about the Everest, as the software in its current iteration is fairly barebones. It gets the job done when it come sto the basic functionalities such as recording and assigning Macros or configuring the LED colors. What was a bit diasppointing though is the lack of Options for the Media Dock. Here I really hoped for more was to customize what kind of information each applet for the dial shows, which dial to load on boot and in the best case scenario even create own custom dials. But while this lack of customization was a let-down, it is nothing that could not be improved upon in further updates, and judging by the stellar approach on customization on the hardware side, I would honestly be suprised if Mountan wouldn't extend the functionalities of this department. So currently a good 7/10.

The Support
-------------
After placing my order I was in contact with the support to switch from Black to Gunmetal in the last minute, and was not only suprised about the lightning-fast reaction time but also the uncomplicated and friendly service. Even though I had a few mroe questions, they were always kind and patient with me, so a clear 10/10 there.

The delivery time
--------------------
It arrived WAY earlier than I expected, easy 10/10!

The Outlook
--------------
The modular approach of the Everst Max opens up so many fascinating opportunities. Maybe they'll develop other Media Modules for different porposes, a dedicated LCD-Macro-Hotkey-Sidepanel or different types of wristrests, who knows? The potential is there. And software-wise, allowing the user to create custom key-layers, extend the configuration options for the Media-Panel and maybe even adding a API to design completely own individual applets for the screen would be incredibale additions to the concept!

Would I buy it again myself?
------------------------------
Yes, absolutely!

So shoudl YOU buy this board?
---------------------------------
That depends:
If you want a keeb that can display all curent system parameters at once like back in the good'ol days of the Logitech G15 and G510, then I'd say no. At lwast for now, this keyboard won't become the dashboard for your system performance at a glance. But if on the other hand you want a keyboard that you can customize to your needs and that will probably accompany you a lifetime without breaking, one that you can make your own and change it whenever you feel like it, then yes, go for it! The concept and it's possibilities are just amazing!

Awesome hardware, good-ish software

I just received my Everest Max and it's a piece of awesomeness. I really love the hardware part, but the software could use a bit of improvement. Anyway, I recommended it to all my gamer friends.

Good Keyboard with a few flaws

The Keyboard comes in a really good package and feels very premium, the keyboard itself feels just as premium for the most part. The software is decent... it isn't perfect but it pretty much gets the job done. It's a shame it doesn't come with PBT keycaps and the fact that you can't buy any PBT keycaps with the same style as the ones you get is a big minus. The overall the build quality is really nice and switching the switches are super easy.
Support was relatively quick and helpful.
In conclusion the keyboard is fantastic and you should definitely buy one seeing as it's fully customizable and will last you a long time.

The last keyboard I will need

Sooo... I waited since October and I'm finally able to write my review here:
- Was it worth the wait? Y-E-S, If someone says something different then I can't help them anymore... :).

- Is the Everest Max worth 250€? Yes, definitely yes!

- Do I need the Everest Max or am I fine with an Everest Core? Really depends on what you are looking for. If you are aiming for the MAXimum (see what I did there? :D) you should get the Max (the numpad with those LCD screens is just astounding). If you are just looking for a great keyboard which still isn't cheap but won't make you regret your choice, because your wife hates you for spending 250 on a keyboard, then you should get the Core version instead.

- How is the typing feel? Great. Lubed stabs are a dream and the clipped spacebar stab is just on a different level.

- Is it worth it to buy the Core and get just the numpad for example? Definitely not in my opinion. Get the Core or get the Max :).

- What do you think about the ABS keycaps? I'm not a huge fan of ABS. They are fine but they feel like a placeholder for me. Really depends on your needs. I replaced them instantly with PBT keycaps.

- Which switch type should I get? Well... this question isn't easy. If you're new to the mecha-market you could try MX Browns, because they are closer to rubberdome than anything else - Cherry state that MX Browns are tactile switches, but they aren't THAT tactile in my opinion, but they are a good base for starting.

- How good is the software? Well.... It looks nice and it has okay-ish functionality, but they need to work on bugs and maybe increase the usability of the tool somehow. I wouldn't lower my rating for it, because the hardware is what I spent my money on. If you're looking for great and shiny RGB you should get something else (SPOILER: But you won't get that nice typing feel).

- Which colour should I buy? Really depends on your taste. I got myself Midnight Black and it doesn't look "cheap" as Hardware Canucks stated for example.

So everything is good right? Well... Yeah. Typing feel is great, you can swap your switches out, you have full customizability.
Something that would have been great to see is support for 5 pin switches. I totally understand why this isn't a thing on their first keyboard, but I would love to see something in the future.
They have some issues regarding supply chain and manufacturing, because they are simply overrun by orders right now, but they promised it will get better very soon. It is definitley worth the wait if you CAN wait. If you need a new keyboard really fast you should look for a cheap keyboard to use until your Everest arrives, because the Everest will be the last keyboard you will ever need in your life :).

Eine geniale Tastatur - bitte aktuell halten und weiter entwickeln!

Ich hatte eine ganze Weile überlegt eine so teure Tastatur anzuschaffen und muss im Nachhinein sagen: Ich bin froh es getan zu haben!
Der Versand dauert wohl etwas länger als bei den meisten Artikeln, trotzdem hatte konnte ich die Everest Max nach ca. zwei Wochen mein Eigen nennen können, was für mich völlig in Ordnung ist.
Das Auspacken macht richtig Spaß, es mag sehr individuell sein, aber mit einer hochwertigen, kreativen und gleichzeitig sinnvollen Verpackung lässt sich ein super erster Eindruck wecken!
Die Tastatur ist schnell zusammengebaut, funktioniert sofort nach anschließen an den PC tadellos und ist optisch ein echter Hingucker: hochwertiges Material, ein einzigartiges Design, eine leckere RGB Beleuchtung und nicht zu vergessen Displays am Media Dock und den Makrotasten lassen die Everest Max wirklich herausstechen.
Über die meist sehr intuitive Software lassen sich allerlei praktische Einstellungen vornehmen - alles, was man von einer Tastatur eben erwarten kann. Ich war nie der Meinung Makrotasten an meiner Tastatur zu benötigen, die der Everest Max laden durch die kleinen Displays allerdings wirklich zur Nutzung ein und ein weiters Mal macht es einfach Spaß sich mit der Tastatur zu spielen.
Das Media Dock kommt mit einigen sehr sinnvollen und einigen eher sinnlosen Funktionen, das ist aber wohl von der Nutzung abhängig; besonderer Fan bin ich von Uhr, Stoppuhr und Hardware monitoring. Hier wird leider unter dem Punkt GPU die Nutzung meines Grafikspeichers gezeigt und nicht die Nutzung der GPU selbst - das bitte beheben. Gleichzeitig ließe sich hier einiges erweitern. Eine FPS Anzeigen wäre sehr wünschenswert und es sollte in der Software auswählbar sein, welche Werte beim durchscrollen angezeigt werden und welche nicht.
Das Schreibgefühl ist natürlich in erster Linie abhängig von den gewählten Switches (bei mir sind es silberne zum zocken), ist allerdings insgesamt sehr gut, auch wenn die Keycaps zwar hochwertig, aber nichts Besonderes sind.
Die Handballenauflage ist vom Material her sehr angenehm und für die Handhaltung beim Schreiben perfekt - fürs spielen dürfte sie aber ruhig noch einen Zentimeter mehr tiefe haben, da mein Handballen etwas ungünstig auf der Kante liegen, wenn die Finger auf WASD liegen.

Insgesamt halte ich die Everest Max für eine wirklich geniale Tastatur, die ihr Geld auf jeden Fall wert war!
Ich hoffe sehr, dass es noch einige Weiterentwicklungen geben wird, was die Software angeht und auch darüber "neue" Trends wie optomechanische (evtl. sogar analoge) Switches aufzugreifen würde ich mich sehr freuen und meine Everest Max definitiv noch etwas upgraden.
