Are there any light, smooth non-mechanical keyboards?

I rue the day I never bothered to find out the model name of my broken membrane keyboard when I threw it out in 2016.

I need an auxiliary keyboard for a second workstation, and I'd like to get a nice rubber dome/scissor switch that is affordable. You know, just for typing, nothing fancy.

Some recent posts by Spearra pointed to various models by Perixx. The PERIBOARD-106 seems nice, but I understand it mimics MX Brown? I'm kinda disinterested in that, since I have the real thing.

Are there rubber dome/scissor-switch keyboards that are light-touch, smooth, and crisp? I don't need high travel or PBT, just something that feels good to type on.

Maybe I should have bought the Logitech K740 when it was on sale. The PERIBOARD-317 seems nice, and it is cheap. Anything but the K120. It's like the opposite of what I want.

HHKB Pro... wait, it should be "cheap". Okay, what about NIZ/PLUM then?

For nice rubber-dome, I recommend a used "IBM kb-8923"
They also have version with Trackpoint
