  1. Destiny L.

    Let me preface this by saying I purchased my case from AliExpress and I have the lilac version with gold accents. That said, everything else is the same as described here (Monsgeek software required, included accessories, etc). And I can honestly say this case is beyond amazing. It obliterated all expectations. It feels so premium and comes ready to go! Monsgeek includes little stickers for the force break mod, some additional tape, and foams preinstalled. Stabilizers are prelubed and pretty darn good. And the lilac colorway is beautiful! I hope they update the shop here to include the lilac and silver (and maybe one day other colors). I also hope they add the option for ordering the little side accent pieces in other colors eventually. But as is, this is absolutely one of, if not the, best fullsize board on the market.

    I purchased the keyboard from ThockKing.

    The delivery and customer service via Discord from Thocking and Monsgeek is spectacular and unprecedented in my experience of buying other stuff online (I usually buy server components to set up workstations for my clients).

    After I received the keyboard, I was very impressed with the heft and the feel. I absolutely love the functionality that the Monsgeek driver adds.

    To top it all, this product is well rounded, with excellent instruction manual, support software, written instruction, a beautiful case, well crafted, etc etc. I am very happy with the purchase and I have nothing negative to say.

    Take my review with a grain of salt – I am not a ‘mechanical keyboard purist’ but I knew the potential of a keyboard like this being made and I decided to wait for years.

    I wanted the (1) modularity (2) quietness (3) full size (4) connectivity. I sat and waited for years for something like this keyboard to come up. Even up until early 2023 a full size mechanical keyboard with all the features that I mention above was not offered anywhere and the cost of a custom would be close to $1,000.

    My other option was the Keychron Q6 Max but that brand has made some onerous mistakes pissing people off with their bad quality control. I hope that Monsgeek mantains their customer service and their quality so that others can keep enjoying a product like the one I have received.
