Gateron, Otomu, Topre, Kailh and alps all make some great switches and you should try as many as you can to figure out which one you like,
The E-Element z-88 is a great way to figure out if you like mechanical switches.
This board has a detachable cable, is water resistant and even allows you to route the cable from left, right or center via a trough. The legs provide a nice soft rubber which works well on glass and I have yet to buckle them over from pressing on the KB.
The nav cluster is pretty nifty with HOME, END, PG UP and PG DN located vertically on the right side taking up one row of 1 unit space.
the Otomu switches do not allow for sound dampening O-Rings, but DO allow for standard Cherry compatible keycaps, though, any decent set of keycaps will easily be more costly than the entire board.
The backlight RGB has some decent functionality to it, including a WASD and Arrow key only option which serves for gaming. My only complaint is the color white that cycles a bit too slow giving that "fluorescent jitter" But the settings are usable without extra software
simply pre FN+PgUp or PgDn to change the backlight setting, FN+ + or - to change solid color and on some settings FN+ right or left arrow may be used to alter a lighting pattern. FN+ up or down arrow acts as a dimmer switch; up for brighter, down for dimmer.
The caps themselves are doubleshot, however they have the "spacy" font that a lot of gamer boards tend to have. I personally dont have a problem with it. but you might.
But this board retains almost all the functionality of a full sized keyboard while saving a LOT of desk space for your mouse. My desk went from very cluttered to great looking as I only have a 40in wide desk. I can actually see the glass on my table now.
Sexy responsiveness for gaming so far. Absolutely no issues like ghosting or a single press more than once.
All in all, a great little keyboard considering its price.
Be warned that it is loud, however (especially as a fast touch typer). My video doesn't convey this well (also I couldn't type properly considering I was filming with one hand). I chose brown switches, which are meant to be relatively quiet. However, probably because of the aluminium backing and possibly cheap switches, it is quite loud and has a tinny sort of ring. You will get used to this hopefully, but know that I've found it can be heard through walls and from other rooms.
There are tons of light customization options. They are easy to use. There's even a mode wherein you can program individual keys for customized colors. The best part of that is there is no special driver software. You should be able to run this keyboard with full features on any OS. My favorite unexpected light function is the one where it sends light ripples across the keyboard away from each key pressed. So much fun.
Finally, the tactile feel is wonderful. I'm a long time fan of the classic Model-M. This is not quite that, but it is very close. Sound wise, it is still "loud," but it is not quite the clamorous racket maker a Model-M is.
My only complaint about it? I hate the font they used for the keys. It's awful.
If I was trying to improve it, I would start with the font and then add a USB hub and some touch controls for things like volume. As it is, they are on the F keys to be used with the Fn key.
Overall, it's a great keyboard. I love it.
Price just under $100 here in oz is to be expected for something decent that should be built to last.
Unfortunately the switch design has a noisy spring in each key. I mostly use headphones so this isn’t an issue for me but deducted a star as it’s probably an issue for a lot of people. The keys should not be pinging audibly when typing or gaming. It’s a bad pitch too, clearly audible with medium typing. The other star deduction is because the driver in windows 10 does malfunction from time to time and I’m not aware of a download anywhere. The backlit LED options are rubbish too, no solid white/pale white/grey option. Didn’t deduct a star for this as I don’t care about LED and find it embarrassing for other people who do.
