Looks interesting... what is it?

 

I mean it's all on that page. tl;dr: new higher quality keyboard from GMMK to add to their lineup that previously used to just be 60%/TKL/full. It's a 75% with lots features in addition to the previous offerings.

That's an interesting concept but I wonder how often I'd actually like to change switch types to make this worth $270.

If you're mainly interested in the switch hotswapping feature, there are quite a few budget-tier boards out these days that support it. Definitely a nice-to-have for me, though I don't do it often.

Lately my go-to for both home and the office is a Ducky One 2 SF with Cherry MX Silver switches. Keycaps are stock, but I have 70A o-rings on them. I even keep a spare at home because I am paranoid about having one go bad and not being able to finish a game. That hasn't happened since I stopped using Logitech Romer G switches, though...

 

I've also got a couple extra Ducky One 2 TKL with Cherry MX Red switches. They're the backups to the backup.

My first board way back in the day was a Ducky Shine II. I've occasionally considered another Ducky over the years, but I usually come to the conclusion that I'm not a huge fan of the bang-for-buck as far as features go, and I don't really like the switch limitation with RGBs. If you're not super picky about switch type though, and want a nice RGB board, recent Ducky Shines are super nice.

Yes I've heard the popular narrative that Cherry switches are inferior to other newer switch types, but I'm happy not knowing what I'm missing.

 

Not what I'm saying at all - I have no issue with Cherry switches themselves and I can't really even tell the difference between a Cherry Brown and a Kailh Brown, for example. What I'm saying is if you want an RGB switch, only half (big generalization, but maybe half on average) of the switches from each manufacturer are offered on RGB boards. Cherry only offers black, brown, blue, red, and silver as RGB switches, and I'm a big fan of Cherry green and clear, so I'm out of luck.
