Your bezels are fat..!

Yeah they are pretty wide :D I guess it kind of suits the retro look, although I wonder how necessary they are functionally.

I find the LED layout interesting.  I like that they come with the decent Tai-Hao caps standard.  The size of the bezel isn't a huge turn-off for me.  I wish they had made the V100MTS instead, being a fan of the Matias switch but not the price of a Matias board.

Can't tell if you're joking but mine are at least half theirs :))

I would like to see more Matias variants as well; after trying the V60 with Quiet Click I'm kinda hooked.

1. If they were going to make this keyboard with a large bezel, I would have preferred it on top rather than on the bottom. However, it would be better to eliminate the large bezel altogether.

2. They should produce a full-size keyboard with Matias Click switches, but only after consulting with Matias to be sure they are getting switches that work properly. When Matias switches are working properly, they are far better for typing than any Cherry mx switch or clone.

Totally agree with the above statement, pity the poor retailer has no power over what they sell.

Design is never a footnote for any Manufacturer hence our concerns are never taken into account.  Only when sales are down or non-existent will the manufacturer suddenly listen to our interests for keyboard design.
