First Kit, Pleasant Surprise

I'm new to the hobby and was interested in O-ring mount designs, so this felt like an easy sell for me at the price. Assembly was smooth and easy, and I'm really happy with the end product. I just wish I had gotten the lavender after seeing how pretty it looks.

This board feels way more premium than it actually is. It feels on par with some of the higher tier boards in my collection. Also, the build process was super easy to do!

I encourage individuals to check the reviews under the Bakeneko60 and the Bakeneko65 instead of just reading the reviews here on the mystery Bakeneko page. I also encourage potential buyers to read the QC disclaimers on this page as well as check the build guide.

$59 for the 60 and $79 for the 65 before shipping is incredible, given that you know what a Bakeneko is. If you expect $300-$500 quality, you're going to be disappointed. The story behind the Bakeneko is great, and if you YouTube the dozens of builds with various different configs, you can get an idea of the customizability of it (half-plate, different plates than the FR-4 plate, solderable PCB compatibility, using shelf-liner or zip-n-fit or polyfill (or not), let alone the thousands of keycap and switch options) and the potential of the board.

This is only my second Bakeneko60, with my first one being years ago when the finishing options were only painted, so I was very happy with the glossy texture and finish that my mystery dark grey Bakeneko60 has.

This time, I went with a carbon fiber half plate, Cherry MX Hyperglide reds, GMK Norse keycaps on a soldered PCB. Very happy with the config, the feel, and the sound (I'm running it without any case dampening currently).

I will edit this review with photos as well as a YouTube sound test soon!

Great, great value.

Bakeneko60

As an enthusiast, I have always wanted to try the Bakeneko60, but only if i could get a good deal on one. I purchased the mystery Bakeneko60 knowing that these are probably some of the boards that didn't sell too well and they just want to get rid of them. For the price of $60 it was kind of a no brainer to try this board out. I ended up getting the glossy grey color. There wasn't really any imperfections. Maybe some on the inside but, it doesn't really matter. I also got the solder pcb because the hotswap layout is no good. Going with the solder pcb is the best option for this board as the hotswap sockets don't keep the switches in when the oring is on. I used the hotswap pcb to see what switches would be good in the board. I did a layer of tape on the inside of the board and a very (very) thin layer of polyfil. The board feels and sounds amazing. Stabilizers are horrible, but honestly, who uses stabilizers that come in keyboard kits? Staebies for **** in and TX stabs if you have to use clip in. (which in this case you have to use clip in). This is a fun board to tinker with and will stay in my collection. (rest of the build: kbdfans polycarbonate plate, DROP DCX BOW, and HMX YG Macchiato Linear Switches)
