TL;DR -- solid, lots of features, and (so far) reliable bluetooth. Great VFM. One or two compromises that I don't mind but some users might.

Pros:
- very solid
- hotswap, although at the moment I like the Gateron blue switches fine, maybe better than cherry mx blue
- should be easy to disassemble if I ever feel the need to mod (I don't at the moment)
- bluetooth is very good; no problems switching between Mac and Windows which was a key feature
- no problems waking up at the moment
Cons:
- very tall. Taller than my Filco with equivalent keycaps. Doesn't bother me, but I sometimes use a wrist rest
- keyswitches visible and there's an Alu lip around the board and then a recessed portion between the banks of switches. Again doesn't bother me (looks industrial) but not seamless
- not a fan of the keycaps but then I'm spoiled with doubleshot ABS SA caps (also bought from Keyboardco for my Filco originally).
