Since keyboards are such personal devices, it is best to get a keyboard that suits you the most. That is why custom mechanical keyboards are a thing and it’s gaining in popularity too – but the price for a custom mechanical keyboard tends to be very high. Then, 1stplayer up with the UNI-Q. It’s a keyboard case with pre-soldered SMD RGB LEDs and it is hot-swappable with multiple different switches too.

But of course, it didn’t stop there. Why not bundle the 1stplayer UNI-Q with a pack of mechanical key switches and also a keycap set, then cut the price down? That’s exactly what we have.

The bundle that we got here comes in a total of 3 different sets but they are available in a few different flavors:

  • 1stplayer UNI-Q keyboard case
    • Black
    • White
  • Mechanical key switches
    • Gateron (90 pieces)
      • Yellow
      • Blue
      • Red
    • Claims to also support Cherry MX, Outemu, Kailh
  • Doubleshot PBT keycaps
    • Black Pudding
    • White Pudding
    • Pink Pudding
    • Grey Black
    • Pink White

Each of the items can be purchased separately, which adds up to a total of RM333:

  • 1stplayer UNI-Q keyboard case @ RM179
  • Gateron key switches (90 pieces) @ RM79
  • Doubleshot PBT keycaps @ RM75

But, buying the entire kit in a bundle is only at RM265, which is an unbelievably low price for what it has to offer.

In a very short summary, what I can say is this – this DIY keyboard kit will be a fantastic starting point for those who are looking to start somewhere in the custom mechanical keyboard scene, but don’t want to invest a huge sum. You can literally change the key switches if you don’t like it.
