Amazing keyboard. This is my first mechanical keyboard purchase and I love it. Easily hot-swappable and the LEDs are very nice. Great customer service, great company. Highly recommend!!!

Despite a short delay in the K8 being delivered to the Keyboard Co (which the Keyboard Co kept me in the loop about), I'm very happy with the keyboard, it was well worth the wait. It is great to type on, has fantastic battery life and numerous lighting affects, including various single colour modes if RGB isn't your thing.

My first impressions on this keyboard are as follows. The keys feel light and responsive due to the the red switches I chose. this being my first mechanical keyboard I would recommend the red switches. The battery life is impressive I have not had to charge the keyboard since it arrived 3 days ago. Switching from one bluetooth device to another takes approximately 4 seconds which is a lot quicker than what I thought it was going to be. The cable included with the keyboard is a nice braided type if a little short. However, as I primarily use this as a Bluetooth keyboard I have had no problems with said cable. The colour scheme of the included keycaps is quite sleek. You could be forgiven for thinking that this keyboard was worth double the price.

The built-in RGB effect of the LEDs are impressive for the price and somewhat customisable.

Overall I would recommend this keyboard for a first-time mechanical keyboard customer as the the keycaps are hot-swappable. No soldering required.

I rated at a 9 out of 10. It is absolutely fantastic for the price.

It was a substantial wait for the keyboard, ordered 01-March 2021 and delivered last week. (So roughly 4 months) that being said it didn't really bother me that much the website was updated with expected stock dates etc so you knew roughly when it would arrive. (I don't imagine brexit helped either)

They K8 itself is really solid, a lot heavier than I expected, nicely packaged and well protected during shipping.

It's a bargain for the money and I'd recommend it to anyone after a tkl keyboard.

Great feeling keyboard, very easy to swap between modes and some decent RGB too (could be a little brighter perhaps). Stock keycaps are ok but upgarde them and all of a sudden this board feels wonderful to type with (and that is using reds!)

Service from the Keyboard Co is 2nd to none to go along with it.

Great product and helpful team. The back lighting could be brighter but its still decent considering all its other properties. The sound is a little hollow but the keyboard comes with styrofoam pads you can place inside the casing to stop that if you wish.
All in all I would definitely recommend for any Mac users
