The overall experience for one of my first pretty high grade mechanical keyboards is very satisfying! One of the best keyboards I have ever tried. The only downside about it is that for the price, I'd expect it to not have a "ping" sound after every key stroke, or in other words, a reverb-like sound. Obviously, this can be fixed by adding some sound dampeners into the keyboard, but I would have expected it not to have it stock. Otherwise, great keyboard!
The keyboard is fantastic for typing and the keys feel great. A few issues everyone should know though: First, If you get the black key board like i did, it's really hard to figure out where the arrow keys are just from touching the keyboard. There is a little groove on the up arrow but it's simply faster to look down and check. If you get some new arrow keys that can easily be fix though. Second, the RGB is great and looks cool but the functionality is basically zero. The keys themselves don't light up, so if you are working in the dark, it's still very difficult to see where your keys are. Again if you get keys with some translucent letters this could be fix but its still a pain that it doesn't come with keys that work better with the RGB. Third, this keyboard is thick so your hands will lay at an uncomfortable angle if you don't have a palm rest. Even a basic one can help but i would recommend something thicker. Not a huge deal but something to consider. Lastly, this is a mac exclusive issue. It comes with some replacement keys for the mac but nowhere does it tell you which keys to replace so that it works properly. Its not exactly one to one with a normal mac keyboard either so I had to do a lot of fiddling and googling to figure it out, making the setup a bit annoying. Still the keyboard feels fantastic and I still highly recommend it.
The typing experience is like no other I have experienced. It’s very satisfying and inspirers me to type. The only thing is that there is an audible “ping” sound when many of the keys are pressed. For $275 I feel that should not be the case. I wish the keycaps were see through so you can see the RGB through the letters/symbols etc. I knew that before buying it so I’m not complaining. Otherwise, the build quality is superb. Thank you!
Best keyboard I’ve used so far. I must admit I like the ttc silver speed over the cherry brown.
The design is very good and the feel while typing is stunning! You should be very proud of this product!
Just amazing feel, feedback and looks.
Nice and heavy, big fan of the design and the Gold Pink switches are quiet and satisfying. Might pick up a second for the office!
All good, fast good packaging en shipping! A+++++
A number of the switches did not work and I will probably have to exchange.
Exceptional build quality, and an overall great keyboard! Unfortunately missing some country specific layouts.
Well made, love it.
This is a ok keyboard. I got nothing but issues with this, first, bluetooth stopped working, went from 3 devices to 2 and then went out totally. Then the keys started developing annoying ping to them. I mostly use this as a backup now.
Great keyboard. I bought 3 of them for my business.
The mechanical keyboard is superb! Very happy to have this one, I already owned an F96 but the F97 with Bluetooth 5.1 and a longer battery life is a game changer
ахуенная тема, советую всем
A bit expensive, but it's a very good keyboard, even straight out of the box. TTC switches are a great choice, nice quality PBT keycaps, the case feels hefty and premium and makes the whole thing sound very nice. Obviously we appreciate the south-facing LEDs. There are really only 2 things that keep the F97 from being perfect: Costar stabilizers and how annoying it is to disassemble the board, the latter of which wouldn't be an issue if not to replace the awful Costar stabilizers. Still a very good board out of the box and an amazing one with just a little bit of work.
Fantastic keyboard with excellent switches (TTC Gold Pinks). I have been typing with this and it's just a treat to have a 'smaller' form-factor keyboard with function keys and a Numpad.
Great build quality. However, its extremely compact. If you're making the jump to a compact keyboard without ever trying one, get a cheaper keyboard first.
Its a great keyboard. My first mechanical but I fell in love instantly
The keyboard arrived quickly, the build quality is sturdy, and it has been a pleasure to type on. The enter key seems to rotate slightly when pressed, in contrast to the other keys that do not, but it isn't noticeable when typing. Longevity is TBD, but otherwise I would have no issues recommending the brand.
Best keyboard I've used so far. There's a lot of keyboards on the market and trying to find the right one to fit my needs for working from home, gaming, and wanting one that can be easily customized had been a challenge. This keyboard absolutely fits my use case perfectly. If I had to choose one thing I'd like improved about this keyboard, I would prefer having better visual indicator for the battery level.
Awesome typing experience. Love using as my daily in my home set up. Having a full number pad is great in a smaller form factor. Would absolutely recommend.
Keyboard wireless mode is unreliable. Customer service is non-existent. Product ships from China, don't expect them to refund or exchange.
Keyboard feels very sturdy and keys are so satisfying. This is my second keyboard from here and will be returning for future keyboards.
Fantastic board, pulled the TTC Silver's to use in something else but the case and everything else is incredible. I put in some Holy Pandas and some Akko PBT keycaps and it's incredible.
i wanted an inconspicuous keyboard that didn't draw eyes which this fit the exact profile I wanted. The only trouble may be that if you don't touchtype in the dark, then having different keycaps is a must as these are completely opaque. Get the RGB if you ever feel like making it a sight to see for onlookers.
Excellent keyboard. Typing experience is the best I’ve used.
The compact form factor is great on my desk setup, the keycaps are soft and sturdy, the typing sound of the linear speed silver is really pleasant. I use this keeb daily!
Having come from standard gaming keyboards like Razer or Corsair, this keyboard gave a feeling similar to when I transitioned from using a HDD to a SSD. It has a super smooth feel and sound. On typing tests my WPM increased from mid 80's to high 90's. Only think I could ask for is a light to indicate when num lock is on or off and a way to see what the current charge level is.
absolutely love the feel and surprisingly the cherry red switches are quieter than my old Corsair keyboard which had the same switches. Only downside is that I didn't do enough research before buying and did not know that it was ANSI layout. Luckily it's not a big problem for me but I would advise iqunix should make the layout clearer in text.
I received the Iqunix F97 Dark Side last week on 5/12/2022. Prior to using the F97, I have used the Razer Blackwidow V3 Pro (Yellow and Green Wwitches), Razer Huntsman V2 Analog (Optical Mechanical Switches), Corsair K100 (Optical Switches), Steelseries Apex Pro (Optical Switches), Royal Kludge K100 Pro (Gateron Milky Yellow and Gateron Red Switches), Logitech G915 (Linear and Clicky Switches), Logitech MX Keys, Glorious GMMK2 Pro, and, most recently, the Glorious GMMK Pro (Everglide Aqua King V3 and Gateron Black Ink V2 Switches). After going through so many pre-built brand name keyboards, I thought I would try building a custom keyboard. However a few weeks of research, I realized that I needed a keyboard that had a number pad, 2.4Ghz wireless, and bluetooth for work purposes. For personal preference, I wanted south facing RGB, hot swappable PCB, and a keyboard that was either pre-built or could be easily put together. The only keyboard on the market that could check all the boxes was/is the Iqunix F97. I was about to buy the Hitchhiker version, but was really glad the Dark Side version was released because my PC, PC desk, and all peripherals are black. The keyboard is very well built! It is incredibly sturdy and solid. Out of all the keyboards I have used over the past 10 years, this is clearly the BEST! I did make a few mods to make it slightly better. For example, I changed the switches to the Everglide Aqua Kings V3 to improve the RGB and for quieter typing. I added O rings under the keycaps and re-lubed all the stabilizers. Lastly, I changed the keycaps to the reverse pudding caps, which are perfect for the south facing RGB. This has made it by far the (again) the BEST keyboard I have ever used. However there are some negatives as nothing is perfect. The ESC and F1 keys are north facing because of the Type C USB port. I found this out after purchasing the keyboard. It is probably not something most people will care about, but my OCD'ness is bothered by it. The stabilizers are Costars, which are very hard to deal with and make changing keycaps a hassle when compared to plate mounted Cherry stabilizers. There is no software to help program macros or change key bindings (even the budget Royal Kludge had dedicated software). There is a slight delay whenever the keyboard connects or wakes up from sleep mode and the timer cannot be adjusted because there is no software. Lastly, I wish there was an indicator for the NUM Lock. There is a light for the CAPS lock, but nothing for the NUM Lock. Hopefully, Iqunix develops a dedicated software and updates the keyboard in the future. Considering the higher price for this keyboard, a software package would have been expected. Again, aside from the issues above, the keyboard is far superior to any of the keyboard I have ever used.
