What is a Topre switch?
The Topre switch is a hybrid between a mechanical spring based switch, a rubber dome switch, and a capacitive sensor. Keypresses are sensed electrically without any physical circuit closure, which helps eliminate key bounce.
When a key is pressed, it connects with the capacitor pads and changes the capacitance at that specific point, which the keyboard identifies and registers as the exact keystroke. Keyboards with the Topre switch require only a gentle push to register a keystroke and offer satisfying 'bouncy' feel.
Topre Realforce keyboards can keep up with any number of keystrokes to ensure that you're always in control.
The step sculpture design allows for smooth movement across keys and comfortable typing over long play time.

It is definitely a great keyboard fit office or home. If RGB isn't your thing then this is the one to get. It is also a limited edition, will be difficult to find in the future, hence value will not drop off you decide to sell.

That said, I can see why this board has the legion of fans that it does. It has a very sturdy and industrial feel. The keys are very solid and the sound of the keys is very muted compared to just about anything else that I've tried. When wearing headphones I can barely make out any of the keystrokes so much so that it kinda makes it trickier for me to avoid making typos (I suppose I relied on the audio cues to help me along).
On Windows 10 I tested the NKRO capability of this board and was able to register over 40 keys at once. So for anyone that needs that this board provides it. I will say that pressing the same button in succession I feel the need to press the key a little more deliberately due to the force that is required. It is fine for gaming but perhaps a lighter switch would be preferred by some. Even though these keys are rated at 45g they feel as heavy as my MX Black Filco which kind of shocked me.
Also the tactile feel of the switch is very gradual (it is not sudden/sharp like an MX Brown or Blue), so it is taking some time for me to adjust. I don't type that fast anyways (60-80 WPM) so my speed isn't exactly affected by it.
This feels very much like typing on a rubber dome keyboard... It makes me wonder if it's really worth the money.
Yes, the keys are very smooth and luxurious feeling, and the keys do not have to be bottomed out, but I bottom out the keys on this board anyways, so what difference does that really make? Trying not to bottom out actually made me type slower. One thing I notice on cheaply made rubber dome boards is that they tend to bind if you press the keys on the edges of the cap. This board does not have that problem whatsoever. No matter where you press on the key it goes down smoothly with no wobble.
Finally, this board is obscenely expensive, especially for those of us north of the border. I was considering buying it directly from the Manufacturer and sending it to my sister who lives in the US and just picking it up next time I visit as it would have saved me over 100 CAD by doing it, but it will be a while before I visit her next so...
Edit: April 15, 2020
I've now had the board for 2 months and I changed my desk to a more ergonomically correct one. In that time I have grown to really enjoy using this keyboard. For keyboard enthusiasts or someone that uses a keyboard all day for work, I would say it's worth buying. For the rest of us out there, it's hard to justify when there's so many decent mechanical boards out there for so cheap. My Logitech G610 Brown gave me a lot of enjoyment for only 100 dollars, and it's still holding up very nicely (caps a bit shiny but that's it). However, the noise the Logitech makes is annoying now that I'm used to how the Topre board sounds. And the Brown switches lack the smoothness as well... I do like the defined tactility of the MX Brown switch but it feels scratchy in comparison to the Topre. My Filco MX Black (Majestouch 1 TKL) is much nicer compared to the Logitech but still inferior to the Topre in sound and feel. The Topre silent switches have a satisfying tactility and velvety feel that the Filco does not have. I've spoiled myself and it really is hard to go back. I took the plunge mostly because of my curiousity and the reputation these boards have in the community. Now that I own one I think I'm going to hold onto it, call it a day and stop looking at other keyboard options. If that saves me from buying 2 or 3 more keyboards looking for "the one", then maybe this was good value after all.
Long story short, these keyboards do not disappoint. Everything about them oozes quality. The key caps feel solid and significant (unlike the ultra thin ABS keycaps found on some cheaper gaming boards), and the key press is unlike anything I've ever experienced before. It's smooth, really smooth, but also surprisingly tactile with a nice big round bump at the top of the keystroke. The chassis is made out of thick plastic and presumably some sort of steel structure on the inside (the keyboard is HEAVY, far too heavy to be made from plastic alone) and the entire unit feels extremely sturdy to type on. I particularly enjoy the APC feature on these boards since I can set the keys to the highest trigger level (1.5mm) for high speed response in games, but throttle that back to 2.2mm or 3mm during the work week when I need to do a lot of typing.
About my only complaint is that the USB cord is captive- I would have preferred to see a removable cord on a keyboard this expensive, but the cable itself seems to be pretty high quality so I don't really mind. All in all, this is easily the best keyboard I've ever typed on and well worth the money. I'll be really happy if it lasts 5-10 years, but from what I've been hearing Topre switches have a pretty robust lifetime so I suspect that won't be much of an issue.
