Introduction

Varmilo Logo

Varmilo made a giant cultural debut on TechPowerUp with the MA87M (now just MA87) Beijing Opera keyboard dedicated to celebrating China's Hanfu cultural themes. It is also one of the keyboards that used the debuting Varmilo electrostatic capacitive version 2 (EC V2) switches. Back then, the company was only satisfied enough with the linear switches, which meant three of the four switches had been released. I am still wanting to cover the other two switches, and perhaps I will in due time, but the fourth switch just got released, so here we are. Thanks again to Varmilo for sending us a review sample!


The fourth switch is called the Varmilo EC Ivy V2. It is a tactile and clicky switch, which means there's more going on inside beyond the electrostatic capacitance mechanism for actuation, with a tactile bump and audible click feedback mechanism added as well. No surprise then that it took longer to make! With the EC Ivy V2, Varmilo put out the latest version of its Forest Fairy green keyboard theme, which is fitting given the Ivy switch name and color scheme. I have here the MA108 Forest Fairy, a 108-key full-size keyboard, which is another custom design from the company that goes beyond just a custom set of keycaps. While not as flashy as the Beijing Opera theme, there is a lot going on here, which we will cover in detail in the review that begins with a look at the specifications below.
