first mech keyboard purchase disaster need help with next purchase

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
basically ill keep it simple. im looking for a mechanical keyboard that BEST mimics my logitech classic 200

my current noppoo choc mini i got from qtan im not a fan of because of the slanted key layout

the features of my old board i enjoyed were that it was a skinny width and so the keys were relatively low to the ground and they all lay flat on the same plane. they keys have to be sculpted keys and mx red switches are prefered unless you can tell me a more similar switch to my logitech ones

something i gota specify. mechanical keyboards tend to be thick and im looking for them to be skinny

120 or less

really appreciate this help in advance

I'm not familiar with a Cherry MX keyboard that doesn't have slanted keys. I also don't think you are going to find a Cherry MX equipped keyboard less thick than the Choc Mini.

There's nothing that is flat plane that you want in mechanicals that I know of

They are all sculpted to provide the best ergo

You can't get a skinny mechanical keyboard, they don't work that way.

Deck Legends. They are the only flat mech kbs out there. And for good reason, most people prefer elevated keys.

@OP it sounds to me like you'd be better off just sticking with rubber dome if that's what you prefer.
