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.
The CA66 is pretty nice. Id love a Bluetooth 60 myself but my GH60s are nice and simple.

If I get one, I will just go with the standard PCB... I bought my Anne Pro thinking I would use Bluetooth more, but it usually just ends up sitting around.

That makes things very difficult. Honestly I’d be content with one of my GH60s. GH60 pcb, aluminum case, retooled cherry black switches and plain oem profile keycaps does the job nicely for me.

Luv the black on black. I still have a set of black varmillo laser etched keys, but the MAXkeys look very good as well. I've seen the white print on black keys, but b on b seems harder to find for them.

Black on black is nearly impossible to find in different profiles. I think ive only ever seen one set in cherry profile and one set in oem. Plain laser etched is good enough for me. Thick pbt laser etched keycaps are my favorite.

I built a PC for the living room to game on and while I do like to save it for games I like to use a controller for, I'm looking forward to test some options with a wireless KB for single-player FPS games. I'd love to play Doom Eternity in the living room on a big 4K display with mouse+KB.

4k from the couch is definitely a good time. That is exactly what we do. 65” samsung 4k but with a xbone controller.
