Mountain Everest Max Review

Rating: 8.0.

Mountain is a new company striving to create premium peripherals, and their mantra is “reach your summit”. They’re trying to ascend into gamers’ hearts with the Everest series of keyboards, which are customisable, modular designs… but you might need to hike into your savings as the Everest Max that we’re looking at today comes in at a steep £223.99. Is it worth the money?

Pros:

  • Modular design, place the numpad or media dock almost anywhere you’d like.
  • Everything is included with the Everest Max, no need to purchase add-ons.
  • Hot-swappable switches – one of each Cherry MX variant is included for you to test.
  • Much better value in comparison to Corsair’s K100, Nexus & Stream Deck Mini.
  • Excellent packaging and presentation.
  • Premium quality dual-aluminium plate design with CNC machining.
  • Keyboard feels very solid.
  • Excellent to type on with consistent feel across the board.
  • Cherry stabilisers, Krytox lubricant and clipped feet for better actuation feel.
  • Dampening foam minimises noise.
  • Software is very easy to use, especially for assigning actions to the numpad’s control screens.
  • Media dock control wheel is very handy with great options.

Cons:

  • Plastic control dial on the media dock feels cheap and wobbles.
  • Numpad’s connection could lead to damage over time to the USB-C connector.
  • Our model’s media dock didn’t align perfectly with the top right connection port.
  • No PBT keycaps.

KitGuru says: This is Mountain’s first ever keyboard and they definitely haven’t started off small! We think they’ve done a stellar job at covering all bases at a much more affordable price when compared to Corsair’s K100, Nexus & Stream Deck Mini. It has some issues but overall, we think it’s worth buying.
