Either way, the V2 is built better than the QFR. It also has some better features to it, like the removable cable.
QFR has a removeable cable. Neither the V2 or QFR have backlighting or macro keys. Build quality may
be better, but I've seen no evidence to support this, and the QFR is already a top notch board quality-wise.
So, other than aesthetic preference and the option for MX Clears, what exactly does the V2 offer over the QFR?
Don't say keycaps, you can buy a full set of WASD's very own keycaps for a a QFR and the combined total will still be 50 bucks less than a V2.
Now, if what you say about them adding LED options later, that's cool. Hopefully they aren't outrageous with the pricing. Their current unlit boards already cost more than their backlit competition, but I can understand that they are a small operation and do some semi-custom stuff, etc. What I'd really like to see in addition to backlighting, is custom colored mounting plates. I really love the red plate on the QFR and the green plate on the 2013 BW.Edited by Zero4549 - 8/15/13 at 2:11pm
