The regular MX Keys feels more solid. That's really surprising since this is all plastic.
Ken: The MX Keys only has one height. This one has probably an eight degree height change [to prop it up higher].
Ken: Look at the iPhone 5, or iPhone 4: chromed out chamfer on the edge of that metal.
Sean: Yeah. It's really nice. It pops right there. This one feels more premium than MX Keys.
All right. Perfect. This is not just for the drama of our episode, but I disagree. I think it's really distracting seeing the guts. Actually…that’s a food crumb.
Ken: I got some fried chicken. Maybe it's easier to clean out though, because they're raised. But I also feel like I might break it, because it's exposed.
Sean: This is all about surfaces, and floating surfaces on surfaces. I really like that stacking effect that happens.
Ken: There are more shadows. Also, it's not very bulky, because of this decision they made to expose the keys. But the type that I like have the keys recessed into the body. It's playful looking. The keys look vintage. Here they’re bringing in modern elements with the exposed keys.
Sean: Once you see it, you can't unsee it.
Ken: Somebody's making these decisions, right? I wonder if that throws people off—if you're a keyboard nerd, or somebody like my brother who basically types for a living.
Yeah it’s really nice. Why did Apple put theirs in the middle? It's annoying, once you point that out.
Sean: This is someone who just wants a mechanical keyboard to get up and go.
