I Found the Perfect Keyboard

The CTRL keyboard from massdrop is my perfect mechanical keyboard.
Drop here - dro.ps/dave2d-ctrl
The CTRL has it all for me. TKL (87 Keys), Space grey aluminum, hot swappable switches, kaihua, cherry, halo switches, underglow lighting, QMK support a USB-C connection. This is a killer keyboard for mech enthusiasts.

  • You should say renders unless you mean images unless you mean photos. Photos would imply what you are looking at is real. Images are compilations in general and unreliable. Renders are entirely fictional no matter how realistic. The keyboard looks pretty nice, were it not for the lit band around the perimeter I would consider it a strong contender.

  • I just bought the Logitech Pro X keyboard. Same idea with the swappable switches. I kinda wish it had more customizability in terms of software like the G513 does. Like I can't enable Fn Key inversion. Not can I save the RGB profile to the keyboard like I can on G513

    • @s h i l o. Because I use as iPad as a secondary device to my PC and I also keep my phone on a stand to reply to messages, being able to quickly switch from one device to another on my keyboard to type soemthing would be so so helpful and neat for me. Also I like the clean look of no wires on my desk (that being said the minimal wire on this is tolerable)
