Low Profile Mechanical Keyboards

Hi,
I recently looked up this massdrop ctrl keyboard and fell in love with its low profile look. The drop is currently inactive so I can't buy that one right now, and I checked ducky and they didn't have any keyboards looking like this where the switches are exposed on a completely level surface without any indent. The logitech g513 has that look, but I'm not sure if I wanna go with logitech switches.

Do you guys know any of these recent "low-profile" keyboards from reputable brands? RGB preferred, but not necessary.

Only took them 10 years to start offering keyboards with sensible key travel and flat top keycaps. And charging 10x premium compared to what they should cost...

I was looking for something similar to do my music production on. I found these in my research.

1-Hexgears X-1 (Wireless/Wired) https://www.hexgears.org/collections...nical-keyboard

2-HAVIT HV-KB390L (Wired, Only Blue switches) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...0616f1f230df39

3-Tesoro Gram Spectrum (Wired,Blue & Red switches) https://www.amazon.com/Tesoro-Mechan.../dp/B01EISM9YO

4-Drevo Joyeuse (Wireless/Wired Blacks & Reds that I know of) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...1c03bb6e005183

5-Anidees AI Prismatic(67-Keys white switches)Wired/Wireless https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...ae0fe05f64a500

Plus there are the ones mentioned in the above post. The Hexgears X-1 and Anidees AI are probably the ones I'm going to go for(Wireless is key for me). Although the Coolermaster SK630 looks good too, whenever it comes out.

Apex M800 also seems to have flat design. But that thing is huge, I'd want a TKL.

Just got a Low Profile Corsair K70 off Best Buy for 129.00 Great Keyboard!!!! I would buy a half dozen of these even the low profile makes a BIG difference you don't even have to bottom out the yes.

from another hardware site I wrote about this plank..... cut paste

This is the perfect mechanical keyboard switches feel really good that can change over time I know feels chalky smooth. The low profile feels next to a scissor switch maybe slightly higher since It feels like the old Microsoft 600 which was membrane height is similar but I know this one won't go mushy on me. It's a big difference from regular height Cherry switches. One of the problems I had on my other Corsair K70 keyboard the distance from the W key to the Shift key while running in FPS games seemed too tight this doesn't feel like my pinky will run off the shift key there is plenty of room. Not sure if it's the low profile switches or less distance for the hand movement. This Keyboard makes everything else I own mechanical inferior I would buy a 6 of these things. You don't even feel the need to bottom out the switches if you do it's no big deal you don't really notice it I'm sure you would get used to it over a few days. I mean if you want to strafe in games and piss off the other player it's a good keyboard for that since the keys are lower asddadadasdasdsasdasdsadd nice plank.....

Did you get the speed or normal low profile? Too bad it's not going to be available in TKL so it's out of the question for me.

Filco released stingray low profile lineup with TKL options as well. But no palm rest so it's out of the question as well, you just can't win if you want a TKL low profile with palm rest

Regular low profile Cherry switches I don't use a palm rest because I have some really good arm chair rests on my chair and scoot my chair and keyboard up. I don't stumble for typing or anything because the switches are not really that sensitive.

The only problem I have is the Icue software I updated it but it's using a old red profile from my last K70 =) then it loads the new one for some reason after startup.
