Pros: Excellent build quality, no flex, consistent feeling across all switches
Cons: Fading of WASD keys from heavy use for 6 months
Beginning with that, I was traveling in South Korea and looking around in Yongsang, when I happened upon this beauty. I was there for a couple of weeks and made a trips over to the mart every 3 days or so to see when they would have this sucker in stock and low and behold a day before I leave they finally had it. I had been looking for a TKL with Korean keys and this fit the bill.
Build Quality:This keyboard has zero flex, and comes equipped with rubber feet and also the elevated feet come with rubber feet as well. The switches are quite nice and have a consistent feeling across the keyboard. Its my first experience with Cherry MX Blue's and it has been a excellent experience thus far, in fact I'm typing out this review with it.
Design and Looks:This is Leopold's attempt with entering the miniature atmosphere keyboard market and for the most part I believe it does it quite well without much compromise. The first and foremost being that the keys themselves are quite normal for a miniature keyboard. The 2 keys on the top right can be a little out of the way if your the type to use them often. A notable and probably expected feature is that of the Fn (Function) keys. You have your F keys along the top and your Home/End etc keys. The one thing I would have liked to have is volume adjustments. Overall the keyboard is quite conservative in appeal, nothing fancy here to look at. That has its own appeal for some, and I fall under that criteria.
Considerations: Since this keyboard does use the Cherry switch its compatible with aftermarket keys, however the caps are slightly shorter than the norm. So it might be a little awkward if your using different keys without replacing all of them. One last thing to consider is that my WASD keys have begun to fade. For a Leopold keyboard with a cost of 95 USD, I found this to be unacceptable.
Conclusion: I heavily enjoy using this keyboard as my primary input device. I use it for typing out notes and a lot of gaming as well and dont have any complaints, though I am more FPS oriented. If your looking to getting into the miniature keyboard scene this could be a safe selection until you get into the more diverse offerings out there.
