Via works swimmingly with this board, from QMK lighting to key assignment. Just make sure you load the keyboard JSON found in the keebmonkey wiki into VIA for the key layout enjoy a GUI.
No support or instruction anywhere, good luck with VIA
VIA will only be cordial with you if you use the middle USB port
Four keys register incorrectly out of the box with no ability to reprogram anything
You're better off keeping your money
Item never came, got no communication back from keebMonkey
I draw in clip studio paint so from the get go, the plan was to buy this and make it a full fledged companion to my drawing process.
I have had tons of fun setting it up in VIA and troubleshooting and so on!
The build quality of the board is superb, I expect nothing less from DOIO! The translucent bottom is a joy to have (even though I won’t be looking at it).
The top is a smooth anodized aluminum (mines the black one) that’s a joy to look at.
One thing to note in my experience is that when setting the board up in via, plug it in via the middle usb c port rather than the outer one.
I ordered the black version on 09/03 and received it on 09/30
Received this and while the package was a bit crushed. I believe it was shipped from China so I suppose it's a tough journey. That said, there's lots of foam inside so the Keeb was fine. I had some cherry browns ready, plugged them in, put they keycaps on and.....like 1/3 of them didn't work. If it had just been 1 or 2 I might have believed it was an issue with the board, but when a random nearly half of the keys didn't work that seemed suspect. So I pulled the keycaps off, then the switches, and discovered I had bent the posts on half of the switches. Since I had simply jammed each one into a socket while watching YouTube I was, in retrospect, not giving delicate parts the attention they deserve. I replaced those switches (carefully), and everything worked fine.
The VIA software is pretty intuitive, and the capability right out of the box is really pretty thoughtful, there were a few things I hadn't expected: layer passthrough, tons of different layer toggle options, and the ability to map arbitrary functionality to the knobs. The default RGB patters are unreal... the last backlit keyboard I had was 5 years ago and the progress since then is wild.
Unfortunately the manufacture has elected not to opensource their QMK layout/keymap. Someone apparently figured out DOIOs 16 key board and created a keymap and layout for that board, so hopefully this one will follow.
It took 31 days for the keyboard to get to me. It arrived in Texas roughly 6 hours away from me at a shipping center then took 15 days before it finally arrived in the mail.
If you haven't got it yet I would just say give it time.
As for the actual product it feels great and has a good weight to it. The smaller knobs are perfect and feel solid however my large knob is a bit wobbly. I have a feeling it might be from shipping as my box was damaged enough to put pressure on that side. I haven't put any switches in yet but the board looks pristine and no visual issues i can see. The yellow is a bit more mustard than the picture. I was hoping it would be bright yellow but this yellow is good too.
Overall really happy with the purchase, Mostly the feel and weight of this and the general function it will provide me makes me happy.
