Hey guys, here's a decent deal on a TKL keyboard with Topre clone switches, majority of people prefer them to cherry switches as they are much quieter and feel more premium.This one usually goes for around $135 on Amazon. Great for typing and gaming!

EDIT: Here's a full size version with slightly heavier switches: https://computers.woot.com/offers...cat_pc_4_2

Oh boy, this is my time to shine.

I've got one of these keyboards, and have been using it for years. Not the exact one, but it is an ABKO keyboard with RGB and wireless, with the exact same key switch.

Up until covid hit, this was by far my most used keyboard. It feels great, has an incredibly smooth key press and actuation (rivaled only by some of the really expensive hall effect keyboards I've used), and just feels really great to use.
However, the real benefit of using this keyboard (and all modern electrostatic capacitive keyboards) is their actuation sound. These things are almost completely silent compared to effectively all other mechanical keyboards out there. Of course, these are quieter than Blue switches, but they're also quieter than browns and reds.

Back before covid, I used this a lot because it was the only mechanical keyboard that didn't make me completely insufferable to be around my cubicle at work. When using this in an office environment, it's got all the benefits of high end normal mechanical keyboards, with the keypress volume of membrane or laptop keyboards. I also got many of my coworkers to pick up this or similar keyboards, in a successful effort to get everyone good keyboards, and to also quiet down the loud keypress noises that used to be typical in the workplace.

tl;dr
this keyboard is awesome. Feels great, but the real benefit is how quiet it gets. Very useful for office work.

Edit:
Someone linked a video demonstrating the keypress volume. What's really nice isn't just the volume of these, but the sound profile itself. Other mechanical keyboards create sharp and annoying noises, whereas this just has a dull 'thunk' which 'feels' quieter and far less annoying than the sharp clicks of the others. If I didn't currently have a very similar kb, I'd be buying this right now.
I have the 55g full size of this board and it's been fantastic. I swapped the keys but didn't lube them. They take regular MX keycaps too. The keyboard is more spill proof than water proof, which I can actually attest to. The key switches are like sleeved and prevent liquid hitting the PCB.
Rock solid board and great opportunity for someone to try out topre- even though they're not "real" they're pretty damn close to my realforce 87uw.
Topre clone, so yes very off brand. Topres are pretty overrated anyway. So much work for comparatively little difference.

It says it's waterproof? Is it really?

Here is a review from someone on the mechanical keyboards subreddit. This keyboard comes with korean software (there is an english translation option) which isn't necessary to keep installed after setting it once as keyboard has memory. The software is a little finnicky otherwise.

The keys are scratchy and the reviewer had to lubricate them to lower the noise (they say it took them 2-3 hours). They say the "buttery feeling" of the keys become pronounced after the lube.

It's not real Topre keys but they claim it's closer than other clones.

Can confirm. I imported one from Amazon Japan and I am very disappointed.

I've been using these along side my hhkb with real topres and I honestly prefer these. I definitely agree that they feel very different from the actual topres switches but then again, real topre boards usually cost much much more. I equate the sound of typing on these to "boiling water" (which is commonly attributed to topre clones).

hhkb don't have the buttery feel that people talk about. for real topre feeling you need realforce keyboard.

I got this in 45g before I switched to ergo splits (this - > iris - > now using corne LP), but I really did enjoy my time with this one, though it's highly up to - wait for it - preference..!

Water at a rolling boil really does describe how it sounds. Will you get the clicky clack like most mech kbs? No.

Some things to note. Non- removable cable, aluminum paint on plastic case. I also heard you can't open the case up for repairs, not sure what that means.
