Great customer support at Keebz and Cables! thanks for all your help guys!
This keyboard is a nice piece of hardware, that pulls a LOT of voltage with all the LED's on it. You want the most beefy short cable for it type properly. Be careful taking the pcb out of the package, there are delicate LED filament on the sides. It's an interesting assembly process, and you need look up the instructions online.....and it's not explained how to navigate the onboard menu's. (press on the knob to access them, scroll back to the title and click to go back). but once you work out the quirks of your particular board...and finally get a link to leleconsole so you can re-assign all the esc keys on the left hand row... it's kinda nice.
I wouldn't recommend it to a first timer in custom keyboards.
- needs beefy power cable, no pretty coiled cables, unless it has been "rated"
- requires patience, and being gentle for assembly! (and afterwards too!).
- Lelelab did not include stabilisers or switch puller as first advertised.
- did not come with build instructions, (but english translation is availible online with a search around)
- occasionally lighting menu slow to load/ issues selecting correct effect. (fix = scroll to top of menu, wait a bit, then scroll to what you want.)
- leleconsole (for programming) can be buggy, and not all included functions on it work. It's hard to find in Australia without community support (lovely community thou)
+ does type
+ is pretty
+ has everything you don't need including temp + humidity sensor
+ saves last settings on lighting, changable though on-board menu.
+ HAS AUTO OFF. each lighting type including screen is separate, so you can set it to turn off and save power.
+ hotswap (but very tight)
+ enough spring standoff's for 3 keyboards + your lelepad.
