A barebones keyboard kit with a premium price, the Glorious GMMK Pro has lots of high-end features, but awful stabilizers make it a hard sell.
If you want to choose your own switches and keycaps but don’t want the logistical hassle of sourcing all the different components you need to build a keyboard from scratch, barebones kits like the GMMK Pro can be a huge convenience. At the premium price of $169, the Glorious PC Gaming Race’s kit comes with a number of high-end features including an aluminum chassis, a rotary knob, hot-swap sockets that support 3 or 5-pin switches and a 75-percent layout that makes it more compact than a tenkeyless design, but still has all the important keys.
Glorious also promises the flexible typing experience and noise consistency of a gasket mount and uses stabilizers it calls GOAT (greatest of all-time). However, the gasket mount doesn’t feel like one and the stabilizers are the exact opposite of what their name implies, creating painful noise and usability issues you shouldn’t have to deal with on any keyboard kit, let alone one this pricey.
