Sized just right at a 80%—a compact configuration to feature the top function row—the ID87 bestype mechanical keyboard kit from IDOBAO makes a great fit on any desk.This board is both durable and easy to build. Its PCB also features Kailh hot swap sockets, which allow users to quickly change switches without a soldering iron.
What a wonderful keyboard!
This is the first keyboard I've built and I was concerned that I might run into problems during assembly. Fortunately, I found a youtube video online where a similar keyboard was built. I simply "followed along" so to speak and assembly was a breeze. Still, instructions or a link to a build video included in the box would have helped.
The keyboard itself is awesome - very high quality throughout. And I quite like the sound! Very thock.
I very much recommend this keyboard to anyone who is interested in a TKL.
With the PC plate and nice switches, you can get a really good sound out of this board. The rubber bumpers are a very interesting way to implementing gaskets without adhesive.
