Is The iKBC F108 the best quality keyboard under £150?

    Hi,

    I'm looking to upgrade to a new keyboard and would like some advice on which model to go for. Budget is up to £150 and the main focus revolves around build quality. Not so fussed about gamer features/software but would prefer RGB lighting. Heard the iKBC stuff is excellent and much better than the likes of Corsair.

    I could look at Ducky but the Shine 6 seems out of my price range.

    I could go TKL if there's one of particular interest.

    Cherry MX Blues preferred with Browns being second best.

    Thanks.

    I have the F108 and am very happy with it, but with £40 headroom in the budget there might be better options.

    The MF108, for instance can be found in ANSI layout for ~£150 (UK ISO layout appears to only exist in the ether at this point) and has an aluminium case and frame.
    Varmilo are also a brand I see recommended a lot, so might be worth checking out what they have to offer.

    Cool, will keep an eye out of those options. The main issue I have with some products is finding stock in the UK. Might be worth paying the extra then for the MF108.

    Have you looked at the Logitec keyboards? The Romer-g mech switches I found to be a lot nicer than any of the cherry MX switches I've used.

    Certainly not the Corsair series anyway I keep getting the double key input on all my keys.

    I used to have a Corsair K70 RGB and was pretty unimpressed with the extremely thin keys and poor lettering.
