somebody make this happen man, before the end of this year, please.
I really am not sure why people hate on the RGB aspect of this (or any) keyboard. If I were paying a large premium for it, then I would understand. However, the price of this keyboard is just marginally higher than their non-RGB keyboards that I just priced in the US. You don't like rainbows? Make it a solid color. Blue. Red. White. Load up their software and you can choose any color you want. Don't like LEDs at all? FN+End once, and lights turn off and stay off. This is not hard. This is not rocket science. Giving users the flexibility of RGB while not charging much for it is a win-win for everyone. I purchased mine locally and it is staying on my desk for years to come.
Looks like it's $250 on Newegg, in case anybody's interested.
It's almost tempting, but jesus christ, in total (after shipping) over $300? (And that's *before* the exchange rate to Canadian.) Can't justify that at all.
FYI: MechanicaKeyboards.com just lowered their price to $254.
Bought this from amazon. But mine had a chatter problem. APC to the most sensitive setting, then some keys just ramdomly register themselves.
Hi MK lovers and especially Topre lovers, you're welcome to check our store and particularly this t-shirt:

Can the Realforce branding on the upper right easily be removed? Also - would I be able to use regular Cherry MX keys on this board? I really don't like the font that much - rather go for a classic and somewhat clean look.

What a waste of money and time your idea is trolling.

You're a very nice person I'm sure.
RGB can make anything look tacky

People can buy what they want and people can say what they want.
You can buy it if you want. We were just saying it's tacky to us which is why we weren't. Use some logic there man.
No one on this site wants this rubber dome keyboard.

People throw this around the subreddit as a joke. It's basically mocking how offended people get over the Topre price tag. Don't take it too seriously. :)

So either he's dumb or acting dumb

Woo, a mirror under the LEDs! This drop should include a gold zodiac necklace and a polyester leisure suit so we could do the whole disco thing properly. :?)
Pado
And that's on sale! Normally $339!
Do people not realize that you can get a keyboard at Walmart for like $10?

I do ok for the audiophile bit i can not sit around listening to music. I day trade and that takes up most of my spare time because I spend it reading filings and whatty what. But I have a modest vinyl selection with a decent pair of speakers and old amp from the 80s. I shopped on audiovox the used online place.
I used to drive a hyndai sonata 2009 sits on the driveway unless I hangout with colleagues and gf. When I am going to be about and might run into people I drive around in the merc c300. Tbh the merc is great and perfect for self esteem. I can not get the same feeling from the idea of a keyboard so i will look at it from a headphone ideal.
Not including the Keyspacers? Rather have that than the wrist rest tbh. http://www.tomshardware.com/news/topre-spacers-actuation-change-realforce,33406.html
I'm hoping/Praying for a ISO layout since I'm in the UK and a TKL version tbh. Topre make this happen since this is a "gaming" keyboard.
$67.50 shipping to Australia? I genuinely laughed at that.
This is an insulting drop. You can get this keyboard just about anywhere for a better price. (e.g. https://www.amazon.com/Realforce-108-key-Backlit-Mechanical-Keyboard/dp/B01MU1LUQD/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1484689215&sr=8-1&keywords=Topre+Realforce+RGB) If you have an amazon card you can get 5% back (roughly $12.50)

Oh! Was that a wrist rest? I thought that piece of wood was for beating your face after you found out you got ripped off.
You must be living in a nightmare part of the world.
i would consider it if i got shipping in the EU because adding 21% +11% is a killer on this. Also i would prefer a TKL size and a removable cable. double shot PBT keycaps. And NO software please just use hardware key-combo's like ducky does. if they can do it on a mouse Topre should be able to do it on a keyboard *LoL*

This one made me laugh, like some other so called Essentials. Which measurements are taken to judge this, mine might be wrong, too, but this is just not needed marketing trash!
If this is essential, a classic Realforce should be granted and given to each newborn on earth, to get a reference about essential :)

I did acknowledge that the flash deals indeed make select MX keyboards have an unusually low price. I'm not incorrect however by stating Cherry MX switches are more expensive than their "cloned" counterparts. :P
Wow you seem to really know what you are talking about. Could you recommend me a bluetooth keyboard with the desired cherry mx switches or something with the tactile feedback like greenmx or that purple gateron or like i want t clicky and it bounces back for typing long term.
So dissapointing their site has free delivery and it is $270 which makes this another mass drop rip off.
Still needs to be 20 cheaper.
I've owned just about every topre switches up until this point from hhkb to realforce to leopold fc660c.. I don't know why, but it just doesn't feel right to me to see RGB backlight on this keyboard. I understand that being able to change actuation POINT is great and a pretty neat feature, but at the same time, I think that the actuation weight of 50~55g have been pretty much been preferred around here-- as well as a tenkeyless/60% version. I hate to say this, but this is the first topre keyboard I was not that interested in to buy to be honest.
$260 at MechanicalKeyboards.com with no delay in free shipping.
Oh that's right ... you're sticking around for a piece of wood ...
Good point.
3% off? Wow. How generous, RealForce.
Good luck with round two,
it had been kind of heartbreaking to see a Realforce drop (round one) fail, never ever thought this could happen before the RGB showed up.

no worries man :) I scrolled through the page so quick that I didn't see it is a wooden wrist rest this time, that's my interest summed up eh :)
however, the fact that they are so hell-bent on keeping the same "pricepoint" just goes against the very notion that established Massdrop in the first place imo. sure it might be that Topre is really tough on this aspect given that this is a brand-spanking new product but I'll just vote with my wallet and not join this drop :)
good point ..perhaps they think "wood makes all the difference" hahaha
Where can I purchase hypersphere silencing ring for topre boards?

Can't say I ever come across that review I wil check it out. Really appreciate that you actually contacted Mrs. Hypersphere haha I'm looking forward to it :D
Azraelian
no worries, always happy to help out a fellow keyboard geek / lover. And Hypersphere is good one, active in the keyboard community and takes pride in his work, so no worries on that front.. Good luck with the mod. See you around ;-)
I can't say I understand the fuss. It'd probably be inappropriate to mention a merchant's name here—but if you look around a bit, you can find these for $260 with free shipping (though no $10 foam wrist rest, oh well). Maybe Massdrop needs to negotiate a bit harder. Or maybe Topre drops aren't practical till they reach the quantities necessary to get any kind of meaningful discount.
Realforce RGB yielded to cross a s s and betrayed their PBT caps, so how can its price still so high?
I'll wait for TKL version. BTW, is the USB cable detachable or still fixed?
I just got the Realforce RGB from my local Micro Center for $259.00. So I guess you are getting a $10 wrist rest in exchange for the time it takes to reach you.
I had a Novatouch, but sold it because I was unhappy with the amount of key rattle it had. The Realforce has a slightly different feel than the Novatouch - the landing isn't as harsh. I like that. It still has plenty of pop, but it's softer and my fingers glide over it faster. My impression is that it does feel close to 45g - the force to depress the key doesn't seem any heavier than MX Browns.
The keyrattle is definitely not as bad as with the Novatouch. But it's definitely there. I think I can live with it, but someday I might pay the $50 and get the specialized Topre silencing rings for this. I don't have any other Topre keyboard to compare the amount of key rattle to, but it definitely doesn't sound as good as the HHKBs. Other than the key rattle, the sound is very satisfying.
I really like the case. It's matte, very heavy and sturdy, and simple in design. I don't have a problem with the shiny bit around the volume control keys - it's a thick plate that was slid into place, so it looks high quality. The board doesn't budge, even when I use the feet. The keycaps are really thick and good quality, but I don't love the font. the dotted "i" in the Shift keys is really annoying.
The RGB lighting is beautiful. It's bright, even, and the halo-like glow from the backplate is really impressinve. And you can control the dimness down to practically imperceptible using the custom color selector. The preset colors don't get very dim, though. The best part is that you can control the colors (and dimness) of the Num Lock, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock and Key Lock indicator lights. However, I'm really unahppy with the customizability of the lighting. If you want to use the feature where it lights up where you depress the key, your only choice of backlight color is white. And there are only a few pre-loaded animated color schemes, and they're too bright and distracting for the most part. I also had issues getting my profile to stick and to be able to control my user profiles from the keyboard (but that could be new-user error).
Overall, I'm happy I chose this for my big splurge Christmas gift. My only gripes are the key rattle, although it's not horrible, and the lack of features in the lighting software.
Oh, I did want to mention that I stuck my Constellation Keycap on the ESC key, and there is no keyrattle at all. I may experiment with different keycaps to see if that helps the rattle.

But how does it come, that I had the problem with a Royal Kludge RC930, the f-key sometimes registered multiple times until I smash that f key a couple of times?
bulleo
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=83664.0 It is possible that what is occurring is not chatter, but is some type of weird issue/glitch that are more prone to occur on cheaper boards like the Royal Kludge because of their manufacturing standards.
