I think YMDK has a 96% hotswap, iquinx maybe too, I also know prevailkeys is doing something along the lines of an acrylic hotswap kit that comes with switches and pre tuned(good) stabs or something along those lines. Also, plenty of plastic kits on taobao(Chinese amazon) for relatively dirt cheap if you want to go budget, might be an alu one too on there somewhere.

They dont look like good quality, I mean not high end, but something like very entry level.

It's def not high end, but the melody does hold its ground and is reasonably ok

I've put together two Melody96's, one wooden case and one aluminum, as gifts. They're pretty nice little boards, I actually used one for a couple weeks before sending it off and came to enjoy the layout. I built that one without arrow keys and a full numpad, and it worked great as a general use keyboard.

Can't speak to their hotswap PCB's but I did have an issue with one of the PCB's I received and they replaced it immediately without issue.
