Great pocket keeb, with some remarks

Bought this because I wanted a small low-profile keyboard to use in the office which also fit vertically in my laptop bag.

What's good: great finish, zero blemishes on both case and keycaps, sufficiently tight tolerances on PCB/case and switches/keycaps, spacious USB-C port, came with surprise travel pouch.

I bought silvers for switches, which were fine both for sound and feel, except that I found them a little loud for an open office setup so I found silent Choc switches elsewhere to replace them. Could be a useful addition to the storefront.

I will echo the QMK woes (deprecated/conflicting macros, missing header files, ...).
Also, I found that the corner keys had a noticeably louder switch release sound. I guess this is due to the outside PCB mounts not using screws? I added a 2mm foam underneath the PCB to alleviate this issue (1mm foam would be better, I'm guessing, assembly requires a little too much force now).

Very small!

I got the minipeg48; it's a really pretty board and well made. I didn't buy the carry-case but it came in a nice little velvety pouch.
The reduced spacing makes it a bit harder to type on compared with an MX spaced 4x12 keyboard, but it's much more portable and definitely wins on looks. It fits in my pocket!
It's worth noting that the firmware hasn't been merged into upstream QMK yet, so if you've already got a fork then you'll have to do some fiddling to import the files from Sporewoh's github.
