  1. I modded this myself with matte white paint on the aluminum body panels, sound dampening inside and these keycaps. I still can’t believe what a good deal those keycaps are. I also ordered a custom keycap for the lights” key in the upper right corner. It has my personal logo on it and is made from walnut to match other wood finishes in the space. I had to mod it slightly to sit at the correct angle since they didn’t have the XDA keycap style. Eventually I’ll get a matching set of Mac Command keycaps.↩︎

  2. I had an Opal C1, which was a gorgeous design, but my company wouldn’t approve the companion app for install so I lost out on many of the features once we updated to MacOS Sonoma. Sold it and got this new Logi one that works with an approved configuration app. It’s nice, but I miss looking at the C1 a bit.↩︎

  3. came free with the Logi MX Brio and is useful when working late or during storms to keep light on my face during video calls↩︎
