Sexy, right?

The backlit Magicforce 68-key mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches and typewriter keycaps seduced me right into another Massdrop purchase. It’s lightweight, plug-and-play, with pretty good (plastic) build quality. The keycaps take a little getting used to, and unfortunately, the text isn’t cut to allow backlight through, which is its biggest flaw. What’s the point of backlighting if you can’t read the keys in the dark? Sometimes the keys feel like they get caught on the way down, making the overall experience of typing less smooth than with my Razer Blackwidow Ultimate. Other than that, no complaints. It’s certainly lovely to look at and the people who’ve seen it have been vocal with complimenting its appearance. I would love a full-sized version.
