Monsgeek M1 QMK DIY Kit

Not just another 75% aluminum DIY Kit.

Value

MonsGeek strictly manages to reduce unnecessary costs through its advanced supply chain to deliver the best value for users.

Flexibility

MonsGeek comes with a PC plate as standard and offers other plates separately. We also offer additional tape and teflon pads for potential mod.

Accessibility

M1 will be available directly, through our partners and from other mainstream shopping platforms as accessibility is our ultimate goal.

Stabilizers

PCB Mount/Screw-in stabilizers tend to vibrate less. M1 uses Akko stabilizers (un-assembled) with nylon housing in case users want to lubricate.

South-facing PCB

The south-facing PCB of the M1 avoids causing interference with Cherry profile keycaps, offering more compatibility and flexibility.

Programmable Knob

Designed to enhance your creative workflow, the premium rotary encoder allows you to easily customize your favorite keysand macros on the knob through the VIA/QMK software.

Golden Accent 

Adding a touch of class and elegance, we opted to add a beautiful golden accent so that no matter which way you look at it, you’ll fall in love over and over again. 

QMK / VIA Support

MonsGeek M1 supports VIA for cross-platform (Linux/Mac/Windows) advanced keyboard configuration.

This feature is exclusively for international version of M1.

3mm Case Foam

Monsgeek has developed its own budget custom material that performs equally as well as poron.

*Disclaimer: Using thicker foam may reduce flex, whether to include it or not is down to your personal preference

PET Insulation Layer

A PET insulation layer has been added to the bottom case in order to prevent any short circuit issues. It’s rare for these issues to occur but we want to add extra protection.

Please note: This keyboard is a barebones keyboard and requires simple assembly. Switches and keycaps (sold separately).

Supreme quality

Nothing more than amazing.

Was fun to build as a first time project!

Brilliant quality budget build

The m1 was my first aluminium based build and I took advantage of Akko's sale which included 2 packs of switches with the board. I opted for the lavender pros after loving the way that the cream blues sounded on my last board, the epomaker magic cat.
This board is solid, it offers plenty of options for mods within the kit itself as well as leaving room for additional mods to suit your preferences. It is less flexible than other typing experiences on plastic based boards i've had in the past but the lavender pros with the tape mod and force break mods allow for a poppy tactile sound which is super satisfying. I would suggest that the stabilisers need work from stock and would recommend filming to remove some small pings and wobbles but this is minor.
Again very happy with the quality of this build and it takes very little work to sound great right out of the box on a budget. My partner has the GMMK pro and was devastated to see the quality I got with the M1 at a fraction of the price. Plus the purple is super cute.

It's more than I could have expected!!!

The wait was long for the Monsgeek M1 Purple ISO, but not was it worth it! Paired it up with a set of Cherry MX2A Silent Red Switches and Krome purple keycaps (which basically batched the colour of the keyboard itself), and... It looks beautiful and feels wonderful to type on! I lubed the stabs with some Krytox 205g0, and used all the foam, tape mod and the force break mod. Couldn't have asked for better, and so will be using this keyboard for years to come!!! Absolutely love it! :D

Quality keycaps

Very nice double-shot PBT keycaps!

Make sure you add to the cart all the keycaps you need for your layout, because the selection is very modular.

The only thing I’m missing for my ISO Spain layout are the small righthand Alt, Fn and Ctrl keycaps, but I did get blank keycaps for these spots, so al least it looks complete and clean nonetheless :)
