Alice Split layout, 66-key Hot-Swappable Keyboard Kit for Win/Mac
32U4 Master Control, Support QMK/VIA Key Change
Alice66 DIY kit is programmable by QMK/VIA. For users who are not used to the Alice split layout, there’s nothing more convenient than remapping the keys by VIA without reflashing its own firmware. The changes can be saved on board, and be worry-free about losing the saved memory while unplugging and replugging the keyboard. Being compatible with QMK.
*only single-mode, after all, QMK has to be single-mode

This was my first keyboard build! I was a little lost and scared since there were no instructions but through YouTube, trial and error I figured it out and now I have quite possibly the cutest keyboard I’ve ever seen and I built it myself! Definitely recommend if you want to try your hand at self assembly builds!
Packaged well. Ordered a white frosted but received the white one instead, contacted support right away and they are very responsive. Fixed the problem and sent me the correct shell color.
Really like this beautiful Arisu layout keeb!
It has QMK/VIA, PC plate so it thocks, RGB shines, Smooth typing with gasket design and it bounce.
Some minor issues that can be improved or to avoid damage when building: Fragile material so be careful when assembling, I would suggest when assembling PCB to add the switches and keycaps before installing it in the case. Can be challenging to assemble but as long as you follow some guide on yt it should be easy. Top screws can be frustrating, when I had the white shell the top screws barely locks and some doesn't so I had to use the long ones to lock it but on my frosted shell somehow all screws works, acrylic isn't 100% perfect - with the white one it can have black stain on the edge but magic eraser can clean it and frosted can have stain but same method of cleaning and it solves it. Also middle acrylic stacks may have minor inconsistency with shape cut on the outer face but barely noticeable once top cover is installed.
Overall its a great board. DIY kit so you can pretty much play with it to make it perfect for you. Price is also right!
Was sent an opened kit -- acrylic sticker had been taken off some pieces, light scratches. Missing some of the nuts and screws. Disappointing.
Thank you very much for your review. We have sent your question directly to the after-sales team, hoping to get your understanding and solve your product problem well. Looking forward to your visit and review again :)
For trying out a layout like this, the price is pretty damn good for what you get. Fell in love with the Alice (should really be called Arisu since it has arrow keys), and have since stuck my other boards into their boxes and into storage. The weight makes a big difference so it doesn't feel entirely like a plastic build, and the stock stabs are actually decent enough that I didn't go crazy and rip them out right away. it was nice to see a gasket mount design that actually works, period. Love the fact that the innards sit low enough so that you don't get floating keycaps look. RGB of course diffuses nicely in a frosted case. Cons: - can only use their software. These days you're going to need to think about allowing folks to use QMK/VIA/VIAL - the daughterboard sits too high. It needed to be mounted lower - no matching wrist rest With all that said, still highly recommend. Hope they make the right changes for future designs
