A very decent keyboard case!

I built my first keyboard on this case, with Boba U4T's and Akko ASA keycaps. I have to say, I really do not have any problems with this board, apart from the fact that it cannot be remapped (although the PCB is based on a GK68 in some way, the epomaker software relies on a direct USB connection which this keyboard doesn't have).

Of course, the silicone dampener and the included foam are great (I added more foam but it barely fits), and after lubing the plate mount stabs with some dielectric grease, it sounds pretty good imo (even the stabilised keys). The translucent black case look great in my opinion, and the plastic is decently thick and feels very solid.

I had to pay $13 USD shipping which increases the price significantly, but it is still worth it. Also, you can find other tester 68 keyboards in other colours on Aliexpress, so you may want to consider those too.

I recommend this for anyone who wants a great value and decent keyboard, but also doesn't mind not having a wired connection or the ability to directly remap the keys. I may consider doing a bunch of soldering and replacing the microcontroller module with a programmable one!

Budget entry keyboard with good quality

This it the first keyboard i ever build. It quality is very good in stock. i love the red switch CIY Evo-red switches that come with it. The stock plate mount stabilisers are a bit loose. I holy modded and lubes all the stock stabilisers with Krytox GPL205 G0 . I also lubed all the red evo-red switches with Krytox GPL205 G0. The finished keyboard sound great.

All the keys you need and none you don't

Batteries last a long time but get some rechargeable ones for the environment :)

Phenomenal Budget Board

I don't generally do reviews. But I have to say I am floored by how good this board sounds and looks. I bought this for my work desk and because I figured for $20 what did I have to lose. This board sounds and feels as good as the one I have on my desk at home that I spent 5x as much on. It came with more too. I didn't read the description thoroughly and was surprised when it came with dampening silicon and foam saving me from having to mod it myself.

I just threw in some switches, keycaps, and lubed the stabilizers it come with. Tada! Budget board that can compete with the big boys.

Whether a newbie or an old timer, this board is one for your collection.

This board delivers a better typing experience out of the box, than board ten times it's price. Note, while not wired, it works just fine via Bluetooth or it's included 2.4Ghz adapter. This board delivers, they forget to mention, they even put some dampening foam behind the PCB. Typeing and learning on this board is a true pleasure.

Extremely good keyboard

For just 20, you get an entire keyboard kit. I mean in the keyboard community, all you can buy with 20 dollars is 20 tealios switches or garbage. This keyboard sounds like it's 200$+. It is crazy how small companies like nuphy is able to break that price barrier for a good keyboard. Sound profile is muted. I got the aqua case and it looks pretty good

Great keyboard, BUT

This is an awesome keyboard at an amazing price, BUT just know that the stabilizers can't be swapped for durock plate mount stabilizers(at least on my unit) which can be a problem for some people
