If we're talking MX compatible switches, the realm of possibilities greatly expands. I actually have a few MX compatible boards now that meet most of my criteria except for the switch thing. But the tactility (and even more so the sound) of MX compatible switches just isn't up to par with other types of switches.kbdfr wrote: ↑21 Sep 2021, 16:11Closest thing is Tipro (MID range) - except for the Alps thing (Cherry MX blacks instead), it has everything in your wish list.Lucid wrote: ↑21 Sep 2021, 02:18[…] The ideal keyboard would include:
-at least 115 keys
-Alps compatible (preferably salmon or black) or Topre compatible (so I can stick BKE redux domes in it)
-Built in full programmability and key remapping (or programmability using a GUI based program such as Via or Vial)
-metal mounting plate (metal back/bottom plate would be a plus)
-somewhat standard ANSI layout with the extra keys above the F row and/or the left side XT style
Closest thing that ticks all the boxes is […]
Edit: Just wanted to follow up and say that I have no problem with using my MX boards because they really do provide the most in terms of layout, features, and functionality. And they really don't feel that bad. I'm just saying that something with all that + a more desirable switch type would be white wale territory for me.
