The Libertouch is a hidden gem. I like them just as much as my Topre boards and their tactility is more crisp and sharp -- the only problem is they never made tenkeyless versions of them so I don't really use mine anymore. My daughter uses it instead :)

Sadly, while cheaper than Topre, they're still expensive after overseas shipping and so on.

I came across FKB8769 that was tenkeyless, but I assume not Libertouch…
