Looks good, always liked the black on black.

Hopefully I don't hate Topre, but I'm going to find out soon. Need to check and see when my Realforce is supposed to be delivered.

I like the red space bar to match your TrackPoint. I'm also a fan of running the space bar flipped.


*Edit: Came home and the board was already here! So far, I like it. Topre isn't life changing, but I like the 55g domes. I think I would have hated the variable weight version. First order of business was flipping the space bar. Will probably pick up a red ESC key and just enjoy it as is for a while before I try modding it.

Just swapped in my OCN Edition Ducky(9008 G2 Pro) back to daily use - had to swipe it from the mother-in-law who is becoming addicted to it, so I'm letting her try another board so I can get a verdict on which switch she would like better (MX-Black, Brown, blue) since she does alot of typing and murders membrane boards (well the cheap ones)

I want to thank, profusely, whomever it was that suggested Leopold to me.

Now being my usual honest, advice taken from here is to be taken with caution.. RGB and pretty bubbles and all that fixation in the superficial or the trendy (see Ducky for example) is cause for concern/doubt
But thanks to you, i learned of a brand i wasn't even aware of; so did some searching, eventually got convinced it was worth a shot, bought me an FC900RC/EBPD. That's the black, 100% size, ANSI layout, blue cherries variant.

I won't say it's perfect (what is), but it's damn sure the best i've owned!
So whomever you were, apologies as i've forgotten your name, my sincere thanks once more

Pride, honour and purity.

Yeah the spacebar thing is something I tried and has improved my life greatly. I don't use my left thumb on spacebar--only my right one. When I type (like now), I rest my left thumb against the front bottom of the keyboard. I just use other keyboards with high profile spacebars and it gets to a point where it's painful. My HyperX board at home thankfully didn't have any issue with flipping the spacebar and has also been a joy to use.

HHKB Pro v2 with a magnetic, detachable numpad that needs no extra cable. And maybe some RGB. White backlighting at the least.

This changes all the time as I stumble across new things, but currently on my radar as an "endgame" or dream keyboard would be a CA66.

https://geekhack.org/index.php?PHPSE...&topic=96401.0

Eventually would like to find a nice IBM Model M industrial SSK. I like making keyboards so I will probably build a split design board like an ergodox and an ortholinear to try out.

There are a bunch of key sets that I want. I sort of equate keys to shoes... Gotta have a few different colors/styles to switch between.
