I have both a white and black model of this - one for home, the other for the office - both with blue switches. The configurability of this keyboard i found superb - i especially liked the ability to switch Caps lock with CTRL, and Alt with Super - giving a perfect OS X layout for me personally. As for the lack of arrow keys this is also configurable in hardware - i seldom use the bottom right modifier keys so being able to set those to the arrow keys was very convenient. If anything this is a bit too configurable haha. i used to frequently find myself in an alternative layout of the board, i found the indicator lights informing me of this to be of insufficient brightness. but that's a minor quibble.

I like the size and feel of this keyboard. Didn't realize how much I use the cursor keys in my day to day typing until they were gone, so disappointed I didn't pay more attention to that. That's on me. The issue I have with the keyboard is the usb-c to usb-c cable not working for me with my laptop. Based on some of the discussions and what I have found on the web it seems like this might just be an issue with the usb controller that this keyboard has with some computers.

I use this while traveling so I can still have that feel/flow and it works perfectly. Included a standard usb cable and a usb-c to usb-c, both of which I have used. Color modifiers are nice though I only use the CTRL one, white on white with that red pops nicely. Switches are quality and I’ve been complimented on it multiple times. Mechanical for life folks! Paired with a felt case I got here too it makes for a perfect experience.

Smaller than expected but overall a very nice responsive keyboard

The keyboard is very solid, comes with colored modifiers for the CTRL, ALT, and SHIFT keys. I wish I hadn't gone with the MX Blacks because they're a bit heavy for me, but to each its own. Overall, I'm quite happy with my purchase, and would recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable pre-built 60% keyboard.

how long did it take to ship?

My god the MX Blacks are soo buttery smooth and flows like a faucet. Feels incredibly dense and premium, and has incredible build quality all round. Only complaint is the lack of documentation online. There is a manual but it's vague and unorganized, so triggering various states and modes accidently will lead you to furiously searching on Google.

Production quality is great, key quality is great and I'm really happy with the keyboard. Looking to get a second in black for sure.

This is a great keyboard as you are not too picky about programmability. Despite iKBC statements of "fully programmable", this keyboard has some serious programming limitations, for example: Fn + any of FGH (and probably a few others) can't be remapped as they are reserved for other things - this prevents me from using Vi style navigation. Can't program Fn + Shift + any key, for example: mapped Fn + i to 'up', but I can't map Fn + Shift + i to PgUp.
Other than programmability, I have not complaints about this keyboard. Build quality is very good. It's all plastic, but it doesn't affects its functionality in any way, internal cable routing is very nice. Additional colored keycaps for modifiers is a nice addition. The price is reasonable.
I hope the programmability issues will be eventually addressed by a new firmware, but firmware releases are rather sparse and iKBC claims this keyboard is programmable enough...

Navigation in what apps? vi mode in bash?

To remap hjkl to Left Down Up Right, so we have Vi style navigation in any app.

The Keyboard is OK. The Production quality is great - the default keycaps are amazing, the case, while plastic, is cool and the stock cord is amazing (the usb-c-to-usb one, the usb-c to usb-c is a bit on the cheap end since it's not braided).
HOWEVER - from a keyboard enthusiast's perspective - this keyboard is bad. The PCB and case are not-standard, which will make it very hard for you to replace it, shall you want let's say a CNC aluminum case (like the pok3r's, for example). The 'programming' is not great either - there are better options out there that allow you to temper with the 'main' layer in a graphical and intuitive way.
In summary - this keyboard is a great 60% starter keyboard - it's just that it's not expandable in almost any way. I would go for the pok3r, just for the better case, and for those of you who want to program your keyboard - this is not it.

A solid keyboard. Of the keyboard I have of a similar size and layout to this one, the Poker II is my favorite. I got mine with red switches. Those combined with the weight of this case and a great set of default keycaps make this a very satisfying keyboard to use.

Not a horrible board but the firmware is really finicky about the order you press keys in when you use the function layer to do shortcuts that use more than two keys so if you're a heavy hotkey user it's almost unbearable.

Quick comparison between the original Poker II vs this New edition: - Shortcuts are quite similar to the poker II but this one has more macro layouts - Top notch typing experience with MX browns on both - Update the firmware to have more functionality
