Beautiful to look at. Unfortunate that it was a pain to operate.I had high hopes for this item when I first purchased it. I loved the retro old school typewriter look and to be honest it did not disappoint in that department when I opened the box.This was my first mechanical wireless keyboard. I loved the feel of the keys especially the saddle shape and mechanical keyboards are definitely more satisfying to type on than their counterparts.However there is definitely a tradeoff and that is with noise. This keyboard is several magnitudes louder than non mechanical ones so if you are a fast typer it can be annoying to others in the room.The biggest issue I had with this keyboard was the back lighting options for the key. Most of the light effects were outrageous and gave me a nightclub field. Not conducive to typing at all and highly distracting. You would think that it would be simple to have a simple constant glow on all keys so you can see in the dark. But that was not an option. It was either waves of lighted keys going back and forth or you had the option that a single key would light only AFTER you press it. Absolutely makes no sense of this design flaw. If you are in low light situations you would have a hard time finding the right key to press. I don’t need it to light up after I tried to find it.The bluetooth pairing was also more challenging than needed with not great instructions. It would not be discoverable after many attempts. You have to do 3 different button presses to get into pairing mode and there was no indication on keyboard that the sequence was done properly. Finally got it to pair. Could have been a far better way to do pairing.I ended up returning this item because of the above flaws which made the price I paid way too much for something that wasn’t perfect.

Cute idea I bought this as an indulgent lightening deal COVID purchase from my wishlist. Even with that promo (no extra discount for pandemic) it was still about $150 before taxes and all. It’s a cute idea, but I’ll share what I liked and what I didn’t and why I chose to return it. I’ll also try to address some questions I read and issues in other weird reviews and I do hope the photos/vid help! (It’s my first time adding video w/a product review or posting a how-to!) (But not my first time using parentheses!)The vintage typewriter stying appealed to me, so I had this sitting on my wishlist for awhile. I like the phone/tablet stand, the fact that it can be backlit (or not) and that I can use this on an uneven surface like a pillow or comforter (as it’s more substantial than my other bluetooth keyboard).I don’t care for the blue color backlight on a vintage inspired item, the plastic keyboard housing, or the plastic keys. Overall it feels sort of… cheap? Gift shop-y? It doesn’t seem to adjust brighter-darker for the backlight. Caps Lock is lit when locked, but otherwise you cannot see it really. The Del and power keys are not backlit, and not sure why this decision was made. Back Space squeaks with each tap. And to answer some else’s question- it would be a bit loud to use in a public space like a cafe. Because it’s not the late 90’s and we’re not using IBM’s. But if you brought an IBM into a cafe, that’s what it would sound like. I use mine at home, it’s not terribly practical to tote around, though it would be dramatic for sure. I wasn’t a fan of the price point. I didn’t feel like I could justify $150-200 for this. I could probably spend $50 on it and not feel guilty though! It doesn’t seem like anything outside of the normal assortment of crap shoot made in China type items on Amazon even though this was at one point a crowd-funded project.And if you want to know how to change the backlight effect (eg: be solid ON or OFF and stop dancing- or dance differently) use the fn and Del keys. Using the arrow keys will only speed up or slow down the dancing light effect. It does not appear as though the backlight brightness adjusts, despite what it says.AND… one other thing! You probably won’t find it under “MX 520” when pairing, but “KnewKey”.I would suggest looking for this item on Alibaba.

Just what I wantedThe keyboard is just what I was looking for to write with my iPad. It is sturdy without being really heavy and cumbersome. I love the feel of it and the sound it makes. It did take longer than I expected to get it linked to my devices initially, but now links seamlessly.Pro:- the body of this keyboard is nicely weighted and felt very sturdy, can comfortably support the weight of an iPad- comes with a bunch of stuff with indiegogo preorder- pretty- switch between devices smoothly, no problem with connectivity- fun and satisfying to type on

DisappointingDisappointed. I was glad to receive the keyboard and used it for one day. The next day, the only keys still working was the arrow keys. All keys lit up while typing but the arrow keys were the only ones that functioned. I tried contacting support and got nowhere. Product is now getting returned for refund.
Keys are wearingLess than 2 months and keys are already wearing.
So clicky much retroI looked at all the pretty, retro style keyboards but this was the only one you can just plug in. The complaints I saw about the other brands was the Bluetooth was touchy or would just quit. Don’t have that problem here. I’ve never tried out connecting it with the Bluetooth so I can’t speak to how good that aspect is because I’m lazy and plugging it in is the reason I bought it.It’s very clicky and I like that you can turn the back lights off or on. I use it with a tablet and I don’t type everyday for hours at a time.Some friends came over and immediately went “oooh that’s cool!” when they saw it lol.I got it with a coupon and I’m very satisfied with my purchase.
