most people just read whats off the box, and for the love of god, no one cares about unboxing videos.
These are major details that make or break a keyboard yet nobody who reviews them actually talk about it. I would like you to review keyboards though

Ugly but at least cheap. I still would buy a Costar-made keyboard though. That or a Keycool 87
Anyone seen this? Never ever really took notice of the standard blackhawk but they definitely look very much like a CM 690 II. The hotswap bay and the way the switches are placed isn't helping either

I don't mind you know but over time it can provide a better fitting. Sometimes that outer shell is used as ground but hey, in digital ground is just nothing (basically, besides there's one contact in the plug itself for ground) so it's useless for improving contact corrosion
