      I seen the pcb you used had leds in the bottom, do they shine through? I’ve been looking into this since I saw your video, great work!

    Just give 20 pounds for a new keyboard and when it quits toss it out and get another one.

      Wow. This keyboard is pretty good. Well built, the layout is.. AAHHH OH MY GOD THE ENTER KEY. THE SHIFT KEY 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

      No. But in all seriousness, this is a good video. Just personally I could not stand the half shift key because I’m a clumsy typist. Same with the enter key.

                                    thats how you do it the verge, dont just task one of your employee to do a video guide from a point blank manner, you should hire or teamup with professionals,
