I left because I like trying new stuff and it was hyped in the gaming and osu space. It’s a good keyboard and sounds great out of the box for a prebuilt. I’ll probably use it for gaming still, but I don’t think I can daily drive anything that isn’t this keyboard. After about 2 or so years of using this thing I forgot that other keyboards don’t have things like mouse layers, or case buttons, even just not having a split spacebar was making it hard to use without reaching. That’s not even to mention my trackpoint and keycluster combo, and things like case button click + space button combinations for quick backspace or ctrl+backspace. You can do everything on this keyboard without leaving the homerow.
Thanks for sharing your journey! I’m delighted you’re coming back, and it’s interesting to hear about your favorite features.
