Clean and very nice pcb's. Very usefull and the developer puts great effort in it. Good support via his website with a lot of examples how to encode. Can be used as a 12 key keyboard or with 1 or 2 encoders instead of a key. Switchable through 4 different configurations with a separate key. full custom LED Lightning even change lights wit a keypress..
Overall great product. Bought a couple because shipping to Europe is expensive. And can always use them for different projects..
I love Ryan! I've been corresponding with him via twitter and on here since his PCB are often out of stock since this is a great product! So I actually bought 25 pcs for me, my friends and possibly to resell this (low chance but it depends!) I'm very satisfied with the PCB and the settings is easy too its already on his site. I was skeptical to buy at first because the shipping to the Philippines is always a pain. but then ryan was very understanding and helpful with my inquiries.
This is a great way to get involved in keyboard building. The price is great. Documentation is excellent. Demo program actually runs perfectly. You can use Cherry MX keys or some cheaper varieties. I got my Arduino pro micros on ebay for less than $2 each. I wish that the board supported standard through hole components as well, but it does not. Even so, the smt components are not crowded and I had little difficulty (besides my old-man eyes) in soldering them to the board. Arrow electronics has everything in stock and they're great with low quantities. I have the larger version of this board and it is also excellent. Would buy either again. And probably will.
I've wanted to make a macro keyboard for about a year or so...never finding the time to really dig in to it. Then I ran across this PCB and a week later, I've got three of them. Works like a champ, is super super flexible, and has some decent documentation.
