>> No.54104117

>> No.54104192

No they don't. They are pretty much the worst manufacturer of them all. All of their products got some major, unexcuseable weaknesses.
The Pok3r for example is way louder than it should be, due to the piss poor case and don't even get me started on the overall quality. Rusting switchplates, case isn't anodized and sometimes needs bending in order to sit flat on the desk and the keycaps, while being made of thick PBT, have a horrible font which is also blurred OOTB and gets worse with time, since their infill is probably the cheapest they could find.
Smaller mistakes like one STRG and one CTRL key on ISO-DE keysets should be mentioned as well I guess

Every single doubleshot PBT keyset of them has warped legends.
They promised to bring their backlit keyset to ISO, which then was only ABS in a facebook post later and to this day you can't buy either.

Fuck Vortex, they are shit.

I don't get why they are selling doubleshot PBT keysets, but this keyboard comes with ABS ones, laser engraved of course. If you actually want MX Greys you don't really have a lot of options. I don't know how mk com handels their returns, but if they are obliging, you can give it a try I guess. Except for the Greys the keyboard is way too expensive for what it offers.

I really pride myself on not giving a fuck what people do with their lives, but steampunk stuff makes me so irrationally angry I have no idea what it is. It's all so offensively ugly. Like nothing else causes this feeling. Someone could have an entirely blank 40% keyboard with rainbow leds and some ugly removeable cable and I wouldn't think a single ill thing of them. Someone could have a Razer keyboard consisting entirely of hand made artisan keys and I would be happy for them. But steampunk stuff is so violently, offensively, ugly I have trouble coming to terms that it even exists.
