The build quality feels decent. Not being someone who owns a whole ton of keyboards, it's hard for me to comment this; but in my opinion, the keyboard feels OK. Not cheap, but not super solid. Feels like a typical mid-range name-brand mech, but at a high price. This is OK, since the higher price is reasonable given the fact this is one of the view split mechs on the market and a good one at that.
The customization software is fairly intuitive. I have left space set to access the FN layer, which is customization, just like the standard layer. This allows for handy remaps like space+ijkl for arrow keys and leftspace+rightspace for backspace, allowing me to stay on home row more often. You can also set up macros. Everything is saved to the board as far as I can tell. I wish all keyboards had two spacebars and layering functionality. It's amazing what a simple feature can open up as far as convenience goes.
All in all, a really nice keyboard. I'll probably get one for work too at some point.
Keep in mind that the spacebars are a non-standard size (3.5 I think), so finding alternative keycaps for them might be tricky.
The keyboard is sturdy and the mechanical keys feel great to use. The software is a bit wonky and takes some getting used to mounting a virtual drive in order to change settings on it but offers a good amount of flexibility once you get the hang of it.
Being able to position each half in exactly the correct position for my sitting style and natural placement of my hands is a nifty feature. I hadn't seen anything like this before and figured I'd take the chance given my wrists getting worse. Well worth the money.
The only real problem area I can think to nitpick on is the wrist wrests are clipped in and are kind of a flimsy connection. I've had them slip off a couple times when I picked it up in the wrong spot but nothing worth losing a star over as picking it up from the main body prevents this.
Overall I'll definitely be returning to this brand for my next purchase and will be recommending it to anyone that needs some kind of ergonomic hardware.
Having said that, this keyboard, in particular, is amazing. Why is it amazing? I've actually improved in FPS games significantly. Not having to strain makes my reaction times quicker. The keyboard has a premium feel when typing and has great response time. The wrist rests are comfortable and the RGB lighting is really nice to look at. I like that you can rotate the left side of the keyboard a bit when gaming, it makes it easier to reach all the keys you want to use without straining. I recommend buying the elevation stands that are sold separately for even less strain.
Fast response times
Some of the keys are sometimes hard to reach when gaming
You have to buy the elevation stands that are sold separately to really benefit from the intended ergonomics and reduced strain.
Took a few days to get used to the keyboard being split in half, but my wrist pain has pretty much vanished within 2 weeks. I can't possibly recommend this product enough, this plus an ergonomic sideways mouse has made work and just general computer use significantly less painful.
The programmable displays are gorgeous, the Cherry MX Red keys respond perfectly, and the interface for custom mapping of the keys is easy and intuitive to use.
5/5 for functionality, 5/5 for ergonomic use, my one and only complaint is that the tenting kit (which allow you to angle up the keyboard) is an absolute necessity to keep your wrists in proper position, and at the price tag this keyboard is at should be standard. The fact you have to pay extra for an essential component for the keyboard's intended use (ergonomic typing) is a bit outrageous.
