Great kit, everything's perfect.
Great kit with thorough documentation!
Customer Service was great when I had an issue with my order. I would buy again if I need another kit or parts. Love my Corne Keyboard. Putting it together was simple with all the parts from typeractive. I opted to 3d print my case and keycaps and used the FR bottom plate which is really sturdy. :)
I used macbook keyboard for the last 10 years until one day I saw moonlander keyboard. I realized that keyboard can be different. I decided to give it a try. It went pretty well, but there is only a small problem. I am not comfortable moving my finger between the right side keyboard and the trackpad because the key position is pretty high. That's the reason why I switched to corne. The soldering was not hard as I thought, but the battery connector is painful to work with, as I bought it from a third party seller. Anyway, I assembled the corne keyboard and I have used it for over a month. Now I can say, it's working pretty well (most of the time) and there is almost nothing I want to change.
