MX reds were one of the great disappointments for me, in the recent past. Scrcrcrcrrrcrrccratchy. Cherry should have been ashamed of themselves. Those switches well and truly ruined the MX Board 6.0 let alone third party keyboards for several years there. I got a 100% oposite experience with my Leo...

The board is beautiful seebart :) Thank you very much, the keycap colors are much brighter in the picture though because of the flash. I love modern linear MX reds, a truly great switch from Cherry. The build quality of this Leopold is very high, really a joy to type on. One of my favorite "modern"...

I can second the great build quality of leopold boards (have a fc660c with mx brown). The doubleshot PBT caps are truly excellent, I think I prefer them even over most OG cherry caps. Agreed! Both the Topre and Cherry boards are very sturdy! One of my hobby goals is to earn one some day! Just keep ...
