Very well written sir, +1 for that.
First i want to say, that i've nothing against MD or Varmilo, i wish both of them the best and good business.
Second, since a couple of days i own a Varmilo VA87M, just typing with it. This is an absolutely nice and well build keyboard, i love it. Touching the case, with closed eyes, i got fooled for some seconds, is that a metal case.
Regarding the lowest price, this is the same keyboard like this one...
