Switched back from SA Horizon keyset to GMK BoW. Extra R1 keys used to fill the ducky media key row.

Gaming wise I think it's somehow better.

This is a sexy unboxing and one of the new style keyboards you assemble to your own needs. Built like a tank, it looks expensive.

How much?! $345 + $75 for shipping. JFK, and it's not even full layout.

This is big-time sexy. I've played a few old-time FPS games quite well with this monster...
Ah, my daily drivers...lovely as always. :love:

Cool keycaps! Always neat to see these in the wild.

This is a 15 year old Cherry G80 - 3000 w/cherry Blue keys. It doesn't feel heavy and it's a lightweight build. It is the best feeling cherry blues I've
ever tried - very smooth and light on the keys. My daily driver all of those years.
Lovely! Did yours come stock with the alternate legends?

That would be a really nice board once they get all the quirks out of it. Their 'kishsaver' project was many years behind schedule and had a lot of quality issues from the stuff I skimmed. That dude made over $120k off the community to turn these projects into a full time job--too bad he's not the nicest person...

Went with a set of 'Ice Crystal' transparent keycaps for my Keychron K2 (with aluminum case), which I'll be using as my portable keyboard for my Legion 5 Pro laptop. I simply can't game on the mushy membrane keyboard on the laptop. Will also be using a Razer Basilisk X Hyperspeed as my gaming mouse.

Somehow GMK decided to simplify their legends with recent sets.

Drop + MiTo GMK Serenity purchased on sale for $90. Sadly shipping was another $20 and then usual slap from the customs which came down to another $25.

After roughly 10 years i replaced my Logitech G710+, which slowly started to show more defects (LEDs fading and breaking) with the Keychron Q6 Barebone ISO (Knob).

It's using lubed Cherry MX Silent Red switches, and Keychron's Double-Shot PBT Cherry WOB Keycap set.

I may buy a second keycap set in the future and go with the look below, but all black was the look i'm after.

Never could I have imagined myself loving a light colorway that ISN'T classic beige, or anything with white alphas (after the Hyperfuse fiasco), but here we are
