      Great value for the money

      Ordered this along with a set of clear membranes (which I didn't end up using as the stock opaque ones do a better job of diffusing and spreading out the light). Arrived flat, and was easy to solder - I especially liked that the designer even has some soldering advice videos on YouTube! My only constructive feedback would be if printed instructions for the operation of the lights could be included, was a little annoying having to search online for them each time I wanted to try to change something.

      Wonderful rgb board

      I don’t know nothing about anything but I did some research and did some soldering practices and took my time and managed to make this work word of advice don’t keep your solder iron on the motherboard to long or you have a increased chance of burning the internals again I don’t know what I’m talking about I’m just going off what I’ve learned not bad handheld legends you didn’t steer me wrong but you helped me learn how much respect I have for precision work. Have fun y’all and take your time! PS sorry I didn’t taken a photo

      Looks great, works great, one small problem

      The mod works great. I really like the way it looks with the clear buttons I got from here. Only issue I have is that it came slightly curled, probably from shipping. Not a deal breaker since I used tape like they recommend to hold it in place, but it made it a little hard to get good connections at times. Overall great product and would recommend.


      The mod Is awesome i only have a little problem w the point yo GND un the upper/middle part of the pcb leaving that aside the pcb and their functions aré superb

      It doesn't glow at all.

      I don't know if mine is the only one that is broken, but when I first installed it, it lit up for a moment, but then I had to keep pressing the select button to get it to light up, or after that it didn't light up at all. I contacted support but no response. Don't buy this one. The sensitivity of the switch is very poor when you install this kit in the first place. In my case, the right side of the cross key did not respond no matter how many times I tried.

      Thanks for your review! Support tickets are generally answered within 1 to 3 business days (M-F) pending current ticket volume. They will get back to your support ticket as soon as they can if they haven't already!

      Cam in too bent to work

      packaging on this was abysmal resulting in the ground pin being too bent to properly connect. total waste of my money
