Wonderful job, as always, chyros. This is a very cool board and your reviews are always immensely practical, pretty much the next best thing to using the keyboard myself.

most excellent! thank you chyros!
although those brother caps do infact fit on the topre stem, i wouldn't really say they are compatible...
they fit loosely and you can never get enough to fill a board correctly.
other than that. i love your videos.
looking forward to the next one!

Yes, I was under that impression as well, but when testing it I found the caps don't actually hinder operation at all, and they fit on just as well as the stock keycaps do. On the BFK the Brother caps I tested appeared to be 100% compatible, actually.

You're right I had absolutely no idea this existed.
Very good review, thank you.

This one is totally new to me and I've spent far too long searching for split and ergo keyboards, so thanks for the review!

Interesting. It has less of a "thock" sound than I would expect from a Topre switch. It also sounds odd to me because I am now so used to the sound of Topre switches with silencing rings installed.
