good keyboard

Easy to set up, possibly long lasting thanks to hot swappable switches and keycaps both of which are available from the seller as well.
After programming for about two weeks, the only issue is some switches (backspace is the most offensive) are sticking and start deleting line after line. I can easily reverse it most of the time but it can be extremely distracting and possibly unstoppable depending on the OS hence 4 stars.

Awesome keyboard

Quality keyboard, good design, top quality. Delivery was slow because it was an international shipment, but worth the waiting.

Plastic, not leather

I like the colour and design but I was expecting a real leather pouch but this is made of PU. Leather comes from animals, this is not leather. For £25 plus shipping this is way over priced. I could have bought something else for half this cost
