- Build Quality is a big plus.
Basically the entire top and side is a single piece metal shell with a very nice matte black coating so your fingerprints will never be on it.
- Hot-swappable switches!
I didn't have much soldering tools I could use to build my own keyboard and I was keen on getting Kailh BOX Jades/Navies, so I figured out buying said board would make it easier. I don't have the BOX Jade/Navy switches yet, but the switches are really easy to clip in and remove.
- The included plastic keyboard cover is a saint.
Whoever thought of including this on the keyboard, god bless.
I'm a known eater in front of my keyboard, and food bits regularly enter the keyboard to be lost in another dimension. With a cover, I can just eat and watch show without the worry of keyboard chow!
- The lock lights are barely visible.
When you have a floating keycap design, the lock lights just get blocked off by the top row of your num-pad if you place the keyboard far enough. There's no way of telling if you have scroll-lock, num-lock or caps-lock on! (Still better than some keyboard manufacturers who just omit the lights. Logitech I'm watching you.)
- The cable gutter could've been better.
When routing the braided cable through the sides, the cable simply dislodges itself from the gutter very easily with little movement of the keyboard. Especially when you're forced to have your keyboard elevated slightly with the flip-out feet, the cable simply have too much room to move around.
- The shiny silver screws doesn't quite fit-in with the matte black finishing.
The screws are on the top plate, and when you notice them... you can't stop noticing them. They stand out way much more than they should.
- Lighting Options aren't as diverse as it could've been...yet.
Razer offers a much more flamboyant lighting options, with different layers for overlapping lighting customisations. GMMK doesn't have that yet, but I would love to see it coming soon!
Found gmmk since some friends suggested the keyboard due to it is modular switch feature.
Ordered a gmmk tkl, and decided to give it a try.
-good customer service
-switches can be replaced
-nowhere near 1000hz polling rate which was advertised
-tech support unable to fix issue
If you are looking just looking for a pretty keyboard, gmmk tkl is for you.
If you care at all about input performance, run far away. GMMK does not have a 1000hz polling rate as advertised. Even after tech support's "fixes," i wasn't getting more than 125hz.
I ended up returning my GMMK TKL.
I would not recommend this keyboard.
I've purchased a few of the "mechanical" keyboards from the big accessory manufactures in the past. All of them have left me annoyed with a lack of quality plus shoehorning in "features" that real gamers done even use.
I came across the GMMK off reddit and so glad I pulled the trigger. The build quality is astounding, the software is easy to use and not bloated with BS that you don't need.
I picked the Gateron Red switches and installing them myself was easy yet strangely satisfying to assemble the keyboard myself. The best part is with the format of easily hot swapping switches, I will be able to mix and match them on the board for the best gaming / general use setup. i.e. reds on WASDQE1234R and a possible more tactile switch for the rest of the board.
The software is simple does what you need it to do, but if you don't want to use it you can do just about everything on the board itself.
No BS this is the best keyboard I've bought over the past 10 years and cant wait to see what else these guys come up with.
The Glorious GMMK is a real blessing in the disguise, I had just started taking interest in the keyboard enthusiast realm and I became curious about the different mechanical switches and then decided to try them out. As I did more research building the keyboard from scratch really required a lot of money, cue enter the glorious GMMK, it had everything I wanted in a custom keyboard, built-in RGB lighting effects, modularity for switches and custom key caps plus the barebones' edition is great in the price-to performance department! Allowing me to enter the keyboard enthusiast realm without having to pay exuberant prices is a godsend. I must raise a few things about the glorious GMMK, just an opinion but I'm not a big fan of the sound of the spacebar stabilisers but that is a minor gripe I can live with. The one negative point I can find are the lack of speed options for international shipping which led to a pretty long shipping time period, sure the GMMK I presume is most popular in the USA but I'm sure there are a number of potential international customers out there as well so I hope for more options for international shipping. I would definitely recommend the GMMK to a friend if he/she has the interest and budget. Quality product as always!
I've bought this keyboard mainly for the easily replaceable switches : my 3 previous keyboards (from logitech, corsair and roccat) all were rendered useless after less than a year because of a faulty switch; i bind the E key to some repetitive actions and i apparently press it a lot, because its always this key that dies.
With that keyboard, no matter which key dies, i don't have to buy a complete keyboard or have to learn how to souder this kind of precise stuff. I can fully build my habit on this keyboard, that i'll hopefully keep for a long long time.
For the information, i used keycaps from WASD (the custom ones), and they go perfectly on this keyboard.
