I love this keyboard. After customizing by adding the switches and Keyset I wanted I was able to download the json for it and customize the layout. Can use the Json file to create macros for all the buttons and nobs. Love it!
Bought this one to use as a Entertainment system mouse and keyboard combo and it does that job very well.
1- Via programing: took me a minute finding the right .json file but it was on the link provided on the product page but at the bottom (thanks reddit)
NOTE: Use the version of via included in the download package, it's version 2 and the only one that will work. Do not use the online version.
2- The machining on the <> part is very tight and the big knob needs to be turn from the top and not from an angle or you feel some scratchiness in there.
The joystick plastic cover is to small and you will see the interior of the board while using it and it can get stuck on the edge, well it as once inside a week of usage.
3- This is a great NOVELTY keyboard, you will not game with that joystick but to navigate a computer on a tv it is very nice to have a way to move around. We map some mouse scrolls and left and right movement on the 2 small knob for finer tune clicking. It is heavy and will not move from your coffee table
Bottom line: I know DOIO is known for productivity board but this is a venture into the Novelty Esthetic market a bit like their <> style numpad. It looks awesome, does what it is suppose to do and sounds surprisingly amazing doing it. Price is fine for what you get and the design put into this 1st version.
As for customization, well to this I would say : Welcome to Via, the challenge is making it work but once it does it's the best. Hopefully Vial support is on the way.
Unlike the other review, my joystick works fine. I haven't been able to get VIA to recognize the keyboard despite help on the KeebMonkey Discord, but it works fine out of the box. All of the knobs work, including changing volume, pausing / playing, and muting / unmuting. I had issues getting my computer to recognize the keyboard out of the box, but after plugging it in with the cable that came with the box, it works fine with other cables, including my aviator cable. The keyboard itself is well made and feels high quality. It's pre-assembled, only needing switches and keycaps. It would be 5 stars if I could get VIA to recognize it.
I received this keyboard today and it is hot garbage. The joystick sticks in every direction and doesn't return to center. I had to dig around the internet just to find a JSON file to remap it. Thankfully somebody else posted it on Discord because Keebmonkey didn't offer it. Once I finally got VIA to recognize it, I can't remap the RGB buttons. Save your money.
