    And what about the most annoying thing about "modern" keyboards - THE LAYOUT ? I spotted "FN" nonsense on right WIN key, is it configurable or it is like other stupid keyboards these days when they just removed WIN key and replaced with FN key? WHY THEY DO THAT??? Why they don't put FN key somewhere else? I hate PC keyboards with non-standard layout ..... they shouldn't be sold as PC keyboards at all .... anyway, these keyboards are perfect gift - for someone you don't like;)

    Their Indigogo says they began research in June 2017, but there is a youtube with the same keyboard that someone bought in a different color and better keys, with the same lighting effects, in February 2017 called a Hellboy MX520. The original keyboard that it looks like they ripped off, has holes where the usb supports go into, instead of just a weird fat plug end.

      If you're going to blatently copy someone else's design and even use their molds, at least don't act like it's some new design and concept you came up with yourself. they're using the 300k to what.... differently shaped key pads?

    The reason the rubber pad didn't touch you tablet was because you put the aluminum thing on backwards. not trying to defend this shltty keyboard, but just thought I'd point that out.

    Me: Oh. Well, that's the reason, isn't it? How many micro b connectors are actually "high quality?" Isn't that the issue?

    I use the ASIO Retro Wood thing there as a daily keyboard in my office at work. My other programmer colleagues in the office dont mind the loud clicking sound. After about a half a day I got totally used to the keyboard and I am typing about 134 correct words per minute. It's an awesome feeling and definitely worth the money, for me as a nerd. Also its signed.

    So, some guys started the Rymek company, got the cheap Chinese "retro" keyboard in bulk from China (and crowd funded?) with very horrible NON-Retro wavy lights that likely cost about $20~25 each. For sure, not Cherry keys covered up with tape. The Chinese printing on the OEM box tells me (at least) that its $1 store junk. They're making a killing.
