I don't really like Topre. Why it's more expensive than Cherry MX switches I don't know. It's a capacitive switch that uses a spring and a rubber dome. Because it has a rubber dome, it has a set shelf life unlike Cherry MX switches (or other mechanical switches like buckling spring) so over time the domes harden or soften, depending on whether it just sits on a shelf collecting dust or under heavy use, so they don't last as long as mechanical switches. They're also rated for less presses.
They do have ridiculously smooth travel though. The high cost of manufacturing them and licensing though makes these keyboards expensive. I wanted one at first but after trying one in the Cleverly keyboard store at Akihabara Electric City in Tokyo, I didn't like it too much due to its mushy nature like regular rubber domes, but to a smaller degree. I personally thought MX red and black had pretty smooth travel, although the force of the black switch springs was a little much for me so I prefer reds, blues, and browns. Well, I might be fine with MX Green. Black was really resistant so I didn't really like it.
KBT Race...meh, I've never been a fan of those 80% boards and such. I need to have a full 88 or 87 key tenkeyless (TKL) board (standard US or ISO layout. The Japanese ISO layout I have on this board is fine but the labeling on some of the keys throws me off).
Hm...how are the Cherry stabilizers?
Black is my prefered actuation weight. I would probably like blues with black springs best. Red is way too light for me.
It's either an 80 or a really cut down 60%. The new Poker 2 seems like it'd be nice. I don't have a problem with labelling, most of my keyboard is covered with blank caps.
Geekhack is like head-fi for keyboards. Sorry about your wallet X2.
