The keyboard is very heavy and weighs about 2.4lbs. The build quality is very nice as well. I ended up paying bout $120 (including shipping) which is pretty cheap for a keyboard of this quality. I have a Das Ultimate Model C and a WASD keyboard that both cost around $200 each and their build quality is less than what this keyboard has. I know that sounds expensive but there are mechs that run upward of $500 a piece.
They are able to offer the cheaper price as they come in a plain box with no documentation (the docs are on their website). Because of this, this version was much cheaper than the previous Poker 2. Because of these features and the extreme build quality, the Pok3r is one the most popular mechanical keyboard on the market.
When I first started typing on the keyboard, I tried some of the keys that require FN to operate and it was kind of hard to use because most of those keys are on the same side as the FN keys is (left side).
So I ended up finding the wiki page for the device which explained that there are switches on the back that allow you change layouts (qwerty, dvorak and colemak) along with 2 switches that let you remap capslock to FN and one that just disables the capslock. Enabling the FN key when pressing the capslock made things a lot easier as it is on the opposite side of the modifier keys so it is much easier to use them (it doesnt replace the FN key on the leftside but it allows the capslock to act as another FN key). I had planned on remapping it manually using xmodmap or in my i3 config but a flick of one of the switches fixed my issues. I understand that having the capslock key changed to FN might confuse some people but who uses the caps lock key any more anyway?
On: CapsLock = Fn
Off: CapsLock = CapsLock
On: Allow remapping of FN & PN
Off: FN & PN mapped to default keys
The 60% layout will take a little bit of getting used to but I am already getting the hang of it. Most things are very intuitive so it's easy to get used to the function options. Typing on this keyboard is very nice and I have to say that I am very pleased.
Here is a video of the Pok3r backlight modes. I do not really know why anyone would use the last one that slowly pulses but they are pretty neat. That said, I will probably leave the backlight off 90% of the time. That's why I didn't bother with the RGB version.

This will be my new daily driver for my home setup and the previous WASD model will become my new work keyboard which will replace the older Das Ultimate I was using. If you have never used a mechanical keyboard before, you should really give them a try (a lot of electronic stores will have one in house you can play with). I would never buy a mesh, non-mechanical keyboard ever again. The difference in quality is really amazing.
Oh and I ordered a custom braided and coiled cable from http://zapcables.com which should be Saturday. I will post an updated picture with the cable attached when it arrives.
