This is the first time I've bought what I might consider to be a prebuilt keyboard on a little more of the budget side, and I am rather impressed. Right out of the box, the thing is ready to go. Initially I was a little bit iffy on purchasing w/ the Skyloong brand switches, as there was very little talk about them online. In fact, I intended to most likely swap the switches out immediately. I went with the Skyloong Chocolate Rose Switches, though, and am actually very happy with them. They are nice, thunky, tactile switches that end up being very accurate for both typing, as well as gaming. The general build quality, despite being all plastic, is honestly very good. Everything has a nice weight to it, and it honestly feels relatively luxurious. The form factor of these keyboards is also by far one of my favorite I've ever seen, sticking near 100% in a 12 inch form, factor.
My one complaint, though, is the software and drivers. I did purchase an RGB keyboard, meaning if I wanted to control the lighting, I needed the proprietary software. The software is, unfortunately, just not very good. As far as changing key layouts and even applying macros I think it works fine, and is self explanatory enough. But getting lighting to work, especially with 0 actual documentation or help, was a bit of a nightmare. Setting up your own lighting effects is even worse. After many attempts, studying the multitude of examples they provide, I still don't have the slightest idea on how to actually make these effects work. On top of that, despite the software launching on boot, you still need to open your task drawer and open the software window proper to get your lighting to come back on after a reboot. And since the keyboard does not integrate into any other lighting solution at all, I ended up just selecting solid white, and decided I might revisit the software in the future. It is a shame because it is possibly the only blemish on this otherwise amazing product. If you forgo the RGB variant, you can honestly just use the keyboard just fine without the software, even the knob works, as long as you do not want to change any layout settings or the knob function, and I might actually suggest that. I know they have at least a couple, but if there was a drive to make all of their RGB keyboards QMK, it might make the entire ecosystem at least slightly better. At the absolute minimum it allows for more services to potentially use/sync it, and has a lot of documentation and help online, something the skyloong software lacks.
I can add and remove knobs from my keyboard at will and that gives me flexibility with workloads and it adapts to the way I work rather than me adapting to my hardware.

Asked to write a review but never got the keyboard. I check the mail everyday when the mail person gets here so I know it wasn’t stolen from my box
키압이 생각보다 좀 높은 감이 있지만 스플릿 스페이스바를 선택적으로 사용할 수 있는 게 맘에 드네요~ 프로그램을 이용하면 개별 스페이스바 기능도 선택할 수 있고요
