Trying out different switches, replacing old ones, and matching several types of mechanical keyboard switches used to be difficult and required advanced technical skill. The patent pending Glorious Modular Mechanical Keyboard (GMMK) is the world’s first mechanical keyboard featuring hot-swappable switches for Cherry, Gateron, and Kailh branded switches.
Ever wonder what Gateron Blues felt like? Or what is the craze behind the Cherry MX clears? Want to use Gateron Reds for your WASD, but Gateron Blacks for all your other keys? With the GMMK, you no longer have to purchase an entire new keyboard, or disassemble and solder your switches – you can simply pop out the switch just like a keycap, and mix/match to test out and use any combination of switches you desire.
Armed with a glorious sandblasted aluminum face plate, 100% anti-ghosting (full NRKO), LED back lighting (several modes), modular switches, double shot injection keycaps, and minimalistic design - The GMMK is revolutionizing the mechanical keyboard market, giving users full control without needing any technical experience.

Am I beautiful?
I absolutely love this keyboard. Just had it for a couple of days and I have to say it's one of the best buys I have made computer wise. I have the full size, and is a gorgeous build, feels absolutely great, and is pretty thin (close to low profile) compared to other modular keyboards out there, even non modular. It does suffers somewhat on the RGB side, but I don't buy keyboards just for RGB. I am super happy with it. Now I have both, the keyboard and the Model O mouse. Great job building these devices guys!
I recently purchased the gmmk to replace my Corsair k70 because I have very limited desk space and my mouse hand kept hitting the side of my keyboard. I did research on several of the 60% keyboard options but what sold me on the Glorious was its heavy duty aluminum case and the fact that it is hot swappable. When I received my keyboard I was extremely impressed with how durable it was and the overall quality of the stock key caps that came with it. I also purchased the Glorious handrest to complete my set up (which I highly recommend). I am very happy with my purchase so far and will be telling my friends about this product.
I purchased the GMMK-RGB (Full size) a few weeks ago as a replacement for my Razer Blackwidow Chroma v2. I ordered the custom version of the board with Gateron Clear Switches and the Glorious Aura Mechanical Keycaps (highly recommend!).
Overall, the keyboard looks and feels really sleek and professional. It definitely has less of an overt "gamer" feel than most of the mainstream options. The raised keys, black aluminum plate, and silver edging even got a rare wife approval, which is saying something. One thing that really impressed me is that the minimalist style made a full size keyboard feel pretty small compared to my Blackwidow. The USB cable isn't removable or USB-c, but it is nicely braided and the frame has channel underneath to run the cable to either side or center of the keyboard. The RGB lighting on the board is very nice... very comparable to the Blackwidow. The fact that you can customize the lighting on the board using shortcuts is nice because you don't have to download any software to modify the RGB lighting, although that is an option.
For me, the big limiting factor of this keyboard is the software/firmware. The GMMK software doesn't give you the option to have layering key or RGB lighting effects like most of the mainstream RGB software options provide. There is no option to have a solid color underneath and an effect on top of it. Also, all the effects are either a single color or all the colors. You can't just pick two or three. I even looked into 3rd party software (like Aurora) but even those aren't compatible with the GMMK. Additionally, while the software supports three different profiles with their own lighting and macro options, these profiles are only switchable in the software. There is no way to switch profiles from the keyboard itself.
Overall, for ~$110 the swappable-switch GMMK is a good deal. It is the endgame keyboard? No, not with it's current software. Could it be in the future? Maybe!
so i bought my gateron clear switches separate off of another site and i put them on and the rgb is barely noticeable which really disappointed me
