I got the translucent acrylic with panda keycaps for my daughter who I had got into pc gaming a couple of years ago and after she loved it so much I wanted to get her something a bit more personalised as I've loved gaming since I was a kid and we game together a fair bit.
My daughter loves the keyboard, we got it with the gateron red switches but after it arrived I lubed and filmed the switches to give it a nicer feel. We did use the original keycaps which at first I wasn't a massive fan of, but since my 10 year old loved the pattern this is more about her than me
Too often i buy really nice keycaps and start to get a shine but after a year+ of use they may come across as "cheap" but they still look almost identical to when they arrived on the board (I will occasionally take them off and clean them lightly) and she is on her pc most days.
I did the kickstarter and glad I did, the board is still going strong, I can't comment on the software as we don't use it, we just control the colour scheme with the fn keys and never had much reason to change it otherwise and saw no benefit of putting on the software, we did try it but found it sat doing nothing so we removed it.
