    Decent board, but not a good value in 2022

    My white case arrived with marks on the inside of the case, not visible from the outside and to be expected for a board in the "entry level" category. The outside of the case looks great. The case is too close to the keycaps around all edges resulting in scratches when pulling caps with a keycap puller.

    Hotswap PCB has strange switch orientations for some keys, the enter key is very fiddly and is off just so slightly causing the stabs to bind up if the keycap is off center even slightly.

    The sound is lackluster, but this is to be expected with a sandwich mount. Lots of modding required to achieve a decent sound.

    TLDR:
    Looks pretty, sounds lackluster, minor problems with case fitment, enter switch orientation = stab issues, not a good value in 2022.

    Excellent first keyboard

    Upon recieving the unit, you can feel that this is a premium product. Although the box that it came in was scuffed the contents inside were packaged safely. The one thing i appreciate about the design is that the directional keys are lined up to the other keys of the keyboard. If youre looking for a green board, the actual unit is a bit darker than the render; i would say its more like the green in the background.

    Solid Entry-level keyboard

    Solid entry-level custom keyboard with a unique look with the badge and plate. The contrast between the e-white and the brass plate and badge make for an excellent looking board.

    Quality Board for a Great Price

    From the packaging to the board itself, this was a great board to build. For an entry to mid-level keyboard the saka 68 brings quality materials/construction and a great aesthetic. The e-white with the brass accents, both on plate and badge, make for a great looking board, whether you use it as a daily driver or for display.

    Color is a bit off

    The pink is a bit darker in person than you would expect based on the render pictures but overall the board still looks great

    Solid 65%

    Good entry level board! Love the sound and quality is amazing. ANSI/ISO layout is a bit weird but works. Would recommend.
