The $100 backlit Duckies you can get right now have decent build quality, but the problem is is that they come in the generic switches, red, black, brown and blue. Even though not everyone that tries Topre instantly falls in love with the switch, pretty much everyone that tried it for a reasonable amount of time can agree that they're better than all those common MX switches. To compete, you're looking at boards with switches like 62g Ergo Clears, lubed 65g vintage MX Blacks etc. If you haven't already tried Topre, $150 is a good price to do so when Type Heaven comes out. You can't compare Unicomp to Topre because buckling spring is a clicky switch.
