This is the last keyboard you will ever need to buy.
Trying out different switches, replacing old ones, and matching several types of mechanical keyboard switches used to be difficult and required extreme technical skill. The Glorious Modular Mechanical Keyboard (GMMK) is the world’s first mechanical keyboard featuring hot-swappable switches for Cherry, Gateron, and Kailh branded switches.
Ever wonder what Gateron Blues felt like? Or what is the craze behind the Cherry MX clears? Want to use Gateron Reds for your WASD, but Gateron Blacks for all your other keys? With the GMMK, you no longer have to purchase an entire new keyboard, or disassemble and solder your switches – you can simply pop out the switch just like a keycap, and mix/match to test out and use any combination of switches you desire.
Armed with a glorious sandblasted aluminum faceplate, 100% anti-ghosting (full NRKO), RGB LED backlighting (several modes), modular switches, double shot injection keycaps, and minimalistic design - The GMMK is revolutionizing the mechanical keyboard market, giving users full control without needing any technical experience.

And you ended up here because you are ready to take the plunge and start customizing your keyboard, or the red 'Ascend' button mesmerized you...
Well, my friend, you got some expensive hobbies.
If that's the case, I'll tell you how to save some money. For once, don't stop here. The red 'Ascend' button for some unexplainable reason is not shine-through. The Gateron brown switches this keyboard is bundled with, they do not compare with Cherry browns. The font on the keycaps, I am not sure who designed them, but it should not get a bonus this year... For example, the '%' key looks like a spider went through a paint can and left some marks behind, It is almost indistinguishable. The keyboard itself is lightweight, it does not give you as much confidence.
However, if you still want to go ahead, better go to the manufacturer's website and just buy the shell without the keys and the switches. Or look for a cheaper alternative. Because I am telling you, you will spend at least 2 times as much for a customizable keyboard.
You don't believe me? Well, let's see: 110 good switches will cost you in a neighborhood of $100; nice, custom keycaps, something similar, around $110. At that time, this keyboard is going to become a paperweight or leftover, because you will not be satisfied with it. So another shell, it'll run you another $150 easily.
In that case, is this keyboard worth it? My answer is: if you have money to spare, maybe, if you don't just find a cheaper alternative. Good luck!
- No key chatter. (double key presses / failed debounce)
- Floating keycap design. This keyboard is easy to clean!
- Hotswap switch sockets work as advertised.
- Keycap and switch removers are included.
- A right-angled USB adapter is included.
- Removable USB cable is included.
- The USB cable is braided and feels very solid. I would feel comfortable traveling with it.
- Very lightweight for its size. (good for travel)
- Fun animated LED modes.
- Thin stock ABS keycaps. ABS caps will develop a shine over time.
- A few screws were screwed too tightly, bending the case and causing issues with key return in the lower left corner and around the spacebar. I loosened the screws a bit to correct that.
- Only the top part of the keyboard is aluminum. The bottom is plastic.
- Noticeable echo / pinging noise when typing due to the hollow case. This is not as bad as a Massdrop CTRL, possibly due to the bottom plastic.
- Cheap, noisy stabilizers. I recommend replacing them immediately with quality GMK plate stabilizers.
- Accessible screws. I haven't tried this, but it looks like I could easily open the case if I wanted to.
Before my modifications:
- The stock stabilizers were noisy, but they worked.
- The board came with Gateron brown switches.
- The included key caps were of the thin ABS type.
- All stabilizers removed. None used at all.
- Aliaz switches with 35g springs. (springs swapped)
- Translucent key caps, for the pretty.
I like quiet but tactile keyboards and I type lightly. Aliaz switches with 35g springs feels like typing on clouds!
I could've used GMK stabilizers, but when using "silent" switches I prefer no stabs for minimal noise. This means I use a 2u R1 key cap for my spacebar. (like the longer "0" key on a numeric keypad)
I bought the GMMK because I wanted a TKL board with hotswap sockets for switch sampling. I've used it for gaming, development, and everything else without issues. It's been a very reliable keyboard for several months now, though I only use it when testing new switch types or when I want pretty animated lights. (the latter happens more often these days)
This is an excellent keyboard for any purpose. Instead of buying different keyboards with different switches, this one allows you try different switches at much lower cost.
It's noisy as delivered, but that can be improved by swapping parts. This board is designed to be modded, if that's what you'd like to do! If you decide to swap the stabilizers, I highly recommend using only GMK plate mounted stabilizers.
Please be careful when swapping switches. Ensure the pins are straight before inserting them, or they'll be bent and squished when you push them into the board. If you bend any switch pins while trying to insert them, carefully bend/straighten them out with pliers and re-insert them. They'll be fine. :)
-Hugely customizable RGB features. This board can do almost any lighting pattern under the sun, from light spreading from each key you press to a vortex pattern repeating ad infinitum. You can even create your own animations with the software downloadable from the website.
-Ability to use a huge variety of switches. With the exception of some switches like low profiles, Topres, and buckling springs, the world is your oyster when it comes to this keyboard. It's easy as pie to remove a switch and place a new one in, no soldering needed. Granted, even the switches it comes with are great already. Gateron makes good products, and I especially like their Browns compared to the Cherry version
-Minimalist case design. This keyboard case itself is a relatively hefty black aluminum rectangle, with a striking mirror-polished bevel going across its upper edge. Not drab, but also not ostentatious
-Noisy stabilizers. Every stabilized key in this board is a little noisier than normal, especially the spacebar, due to off-brand stabilizers. I highly recommend buying a set of genuine Cherry plate mount stabilizers and installing them, it gives the keyboard a significantly more consistent sound and more satisfying feel.
-Keycap font might not be for everyone. Many of the letters on the keys are stylized, which might be just fine for some people, but I make note of it here because it's a tad distracting for me
Overall, I highly recommend this keyboard. Its few shortcomings are both easily fixed with new stabilizers and keycaps, and its good points are many. If you're an indecisive person like me who doesn't want to commit to soldering a new style of switch in, this is the keyboard for you. If you're a person who wants a great lightshow as they type, this keyboard is for you. If you're a seasoned mechanical keyboard veteran with dozens of boards, from Unicomps to Duckies to Realforces, this keyboard might still be for you, for its versatility alone.
Top reviews from other countries
-Colorful modes look nice
-Cable is sensitive. The slightest bump can disconnect it, and when this happens it takes ~5-10 seconds for it to reinitialize. Sometimes you'll bump the cable and you can still type, but the LEDs won't turn back on until you manually unplug and replug the keyboard back in. This has me a little worried about the longevity of the USB port on the keyboard.
-It's very difficult to get certain custom colors to look vibrant.
-The "custom color" boxes always seem to default back to white. So if you find a color you like that's not one of the default ones you have to write down the RGB values otherwise you'll just be messing around with the color picker again the next time you decide to change colors and then change back.
-A lot of double key presses seem to occur. Particularly with the 'm' key and a few others. At first I thought I just wasn't used to brown switches yet (coming from blues), but I've been typing on this thing every day since January and it still persists.
All on all, it's not the worst purchase I've ever made. If I could go back I think I'd spring for a Cooler Master keyboard instead. The previous one I had (CM Quickfire Ultimate) is a tank and still works great like a decade later.
The prebuilt configuration isn't very impressive; the keycaps use ABS plastic which is less durable and is more prone to "shining" (where the keycap loses its texture over time and becomes sort of glossy) than PBT plastic. I don't really like the font on the keycaps either, but the light from the RGB LEDs comes through quite well.
I don't like the tactile Gateron Brown switches either (which I'm told are very similar to the highly popular Cherry MX Browns) as someone coming from the clicky Cherry MX Blue switches. They barely offer any feedback when you press the key to its actuation point so I end up bottoming-out the switch every time which I've found to reduce my typing speed by about 20% by words per minute.
Obviously, these complaints are easily fixed by installing preferable switches and caps or by ordering via the GMMK website which offers a wide range of switches and a set of PBT pudding caps. I elected not to order from their website because of the taxes & brokerage fees that I'd likely have to pay since they ship from the US, not to mention the Canada Post strike.
Aside from those things, the keyboard is pretty decent. The rubber feet on the bottom are really grippy, the construction feels durable, the cable is braided and detachable, and the optional lighting software is decent enough. If you know you like the tactile Gateron Brown/Cherry MX Brown switches already, then this is a good buy. I'll be buying a set of different switches and caps in the near future though because I'm not satisfied with the prebuilt configuration.
