    They remind me of the Roccat AIMO keyboards, nice looking kbs. Hopefully, they'll be better than their last abysmal Thor 300 RGB/TKL keyboards. Those tend to break in less than 1 month, but they also use Outemu switches, not Kailh.

    Have a TKL/Red and a full sized/Blue for 2,5 years now. The latter was used especially a LOT as I'm a journalist, and it's just fine. Well, the paint started to come off under the spacebar, the TKL has its random white LEDs turning yellow for a random amount of time, but that's that, despite they are getting a fair amount of punishment almost daily. They are not high quality stuff, that's for sure, but far from abysmal and are pretty good bang for the buck. The Outemu Blues more so, since the keycaps have less wobble compared to the Red ones.

    I have no idea what you did with yours.

    I'm strictly reffering to the Thor 300 Rgb model, the one with the Brown switches. If you could read the user reviews from my country (Romania) for that model, you would be amazed, most of them reporting dead switches after 1-2 months of usage. I personally wanted to buy that exact model because it is the only mechanical kb with my demands ( full format, brown switches, both "Enter" +"Left shift" keys in a large/big format), but after my last kb from Genesis, a plain membrane one had issues with "Spacebar" +"Left shift" keys ( for me and almost everyone who bought that model, absurd for a membrane kb), and after reading the user reviews for Thor300 RGB, I had to pass. As for the Outemu switches, I guess not all batches are the same in term of quality ( valid for most, if not all switch manufacturers). That's why I'm having trust issues regarding these new models and their build quality, despite having Kaihl switches. Meanwhile, I ordered a Lenovo K500 with Kaihl red for 50$, since they havr decent reviews, but I really hope these new kbs from Genesis will be alright, I'd like a Brown switch version in the future from them. Sry for my bad english.
