Looking for a TKL that isn't going to break the bank and isn't a cooller master.
Man I'd take a CM all day over that thing. I had a nopoo choc mini at one point. Was ok but kind of cheap. Imo that board you linked looks pretty cheap but maybe its just me. Looks like some really bad pad printing on the caps?

Looking for a TKL that isn't going to break the bank and isn't a cooller master.

I couldn't speak to the quality; however, I can say that the newer iteration of the Choc Mini has been blasted for being a lower quality keyboard than the original. Going off of that, I wouldn't be surprised if that keyboard wasn't any better. I'd go with a Cooler Master over it even though you said you didn't want one. Most of the CM issues I've seen are easily fixed cold solder joint issues that anyone with a soldering iron could fix.

If you want something that won't break the bank and isn't a Quickfire Rapid, check out the Leopold TKL.

There's also the HPE 87 (and in white) that seems pretty well regarded and well built. That's Qtan's storefront. It looks shady, but it's legit. If you don't trust it, you could spend more for the same thing on eBay and from the same person.

There's also the Keycool 87 and Keycool 84, but I've heard one or two people say they were less impressed with them.

If you want something smaller than tenkeyless, but not quite a 60% and still with arrows, there's the Leopold FC660M, or, if you want a 60%, there's the Poker II, Pure Pro, Tex Beetle, and several other good options.

Coolermaster is high quality, so get the stealth if you don't like the branding because I don't either. I would recommend the HPE87 as well, but I'd take the QFR Stealth over that. If you want reds you can check out the Corsair K65, but I think it's ridiculous that in the 15 mechanical keyboard they have, they've only used MX Red switches *facepalm*. Have you considered a 60% keyboard?

Keep in mind that the K65 uses non-standard mods, so if you want different caps, you either won't be able to find them or you'll have to pay extra in a group buy to get them.

Would that leopold be compatible with all the wasd replacement keycaps? I want to get custom keycaps so i need something that will be easy to fit. I need tkl.

I might just go with majestouch 2 for ease and peace of mind knowing its high quality and i will easily find all the keycaps

AFAIK, the Leopold FC200 (the TKL version) has standard sized modifiers.

And Ducky also has some tenkeyless boards.

looks like the Leo has a weird 1x key between ctrl and alt. And the right shift I believe is short, it looks equal to the left shift. Also I think Leo has weird stem placement on the space bar. Some custom caps account for this but not all.
