Blue Alps seem overrated to me. My favorite Alps keyboard ATM is a Northgate 101 that had bamboo white Alps that I swap-modded with tops and sliders from orange Alps. I also like pine white Alps. I even like Matias Clicks.
However, one thing I have noticed is that my blue Alps boards have no binding, even when pressing the keys by one of the corners, whereas my white Alps boards exhibit just a slight amount of binding when pressing the keys by one of the corners. Interestingly, my KBP V60 with Matias Clicks has no binding, even with extreme off-center key presses. These observations are far from scientific and might just reflect relative age and condition of the various boards.
Although I think blue Alps are overrated, I do like my blue Alps boards and have no current plans to sell them!
Whereas blue Alps switches are nice, I agree with E3E about the current overpricing of LE 2014 boards. For those considering an LE 2014, you might opt instead for one of the Zenith "XT" models, such as the XKB-2 with green Alps. I think the build quality of the Zeniths is better than that of the LE 2014, and if you don't like linear switches, with a bit of effort, the greens can be swap-modded (top-modded) with tops from clicky/tactile Alps and click/tactile leaves from clicky/tactile Alps or Matias switches.
Likewise, for those contemplating purchase of an LE 3014, you could go instead with a Northgate 101 or a Zenith 163-73. I am typing this on a Zenith 163-73-1 that originally had yellow Alps switches. I swapped the switch tops with SKCM pine white Alps and installed the white Alps click leaves, keeping the yellow sliders and springs. The result is a very smooth clicky switch that sounds great in the Zenith chassis. The Zenith also has a split Right Shift, and I have remapped the 1x Backslash to the right of the Right Shift as my Fn key. I also use the oversized Right Bracket as Backspace. Another little touch that I like in this particular Zenith is the red lock lights in the windowed Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, and Num Lock keys. Another bonus -- this Zenith model has dye-sub PBT keycaps -- even the spacebar is PBT!
