Eine wirklich hochwertige und funktionsreiche Tastatur die verdammt gut aussieht. Sie ist sehr gut verarbeitet und vor allem die Möglichkeiten zum personalisieren gefallen mir gut.
Siiiiiickkkkk BUY IT NOW
I followed the Kickstarter Project since the beginning, because i wanted a TKL Keyboard for gaming without losing my Numpad and everything. Since i received the Bord i was more than happy that i didnt bought something else.
The Overall Build quality is double as high as other "gaming" Manufacturer.
i was so obsessed with the quality that i ordered the Makalu 67 Mouse and PBT Pudding Keycaps from Mountain too.
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!
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.
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 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?
So shoudl YOU buy this board?
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!
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.
