GMMK Pro Review

GMMK Pro Review Pinnacle Value of the 75% layout?           Intro:   Lets begin with the main highlights of the GMMK Pro, when the launch of this went live in November 2020 it was highly talked about, Glorious was giving us all the features we wanted. 5-pin hot-swap sockets  CNC aluminum case  Gasket mount PCB  Screw in stabilizers Per-key RGB  Customizable layout via GloriousCore software or QMK (QMK compa

Clicky Switch Round-Up

Clicky Switch Round-Up Click Clack THOCK!          Intro:   The base idea of testing out a bunch of clicky switches is to expand my switch repertoire. Clickys are not my favorite, as I do not particularly like the excessive click noise. I find the click sound already had from a tactile switch is satisfying enough, and for the most part all the clickys I have tried are linears that require very little actuation force, which is already my least favorite swi

Drop Carina 60% Build

Drop Carina 60% Build A Fun & Easy Build with RGB Flair!       Intro:   Right now this is a really popular market segment, 60% layouts are all the rage and the Carina seems to tick all the right boxes.       What’s the deal with 60% layouts? 60% layouts have risen in popularity mostly due to the growth in the custom keyboard space. They are a great choice as you can enter the world of customs for a fraction of the price compared to other la

OLKB Preonic V3 Review

OLKB Preonic MX Rev.3 Review New layouts are fun! (and tricky?)     Intro:   Lets keep this one "short" and sweet.    Ortholinears, what the heck are they? To summarize they are a full size keyboard, cut in half, trimmed down, with the keys straightened out in linear rows and columns, meaning the rows are not staggered.    Why would you want this? The main idea behind othrolinears is that your fingers should never be more than tw

Southpaw75 Review

Southpaw75 Review  A Budget Build w/ Full Assembly     This build was both budget focused, and experimental as I was looking for an option that required full assembly and soldering, I went with the Southpaw75, a 60% layout with a left hand (southpaw) numpad.     Parts (USD): For $50CAD this is cheap for a custom keeb (cheap but good, making this a rare find), and while you will require more parts, this remains good value for what it is.  

C³ Kiwi VS Zealios V2

C³ Kiwi's 67g  -  VS  -  Zealios V2 65g Battle of The Tactiles       Intro:   This all begins earlier this year when I took my headfirst plunge into this bottomless pit of a hobby. I found the ZealPC Zealios V2 65g tactile switches both through recommendations here on the forum, and through reviews I had read + watched. I ordered a set, and sure enough, the praise was not unfounded, the caveat being they come at a bit of a premium, $1 / per switch. I had
