Hello, everyone! I am new here (and it is high time that I have joined).

I am hoping that someone will please tell me what key switch type is photographed below.

I am looking at purchasing a keyboard from someone locally, but the person does not know what the switch type is -- nor do I!

Many thanks in advance.

Well, from those photos it looks like the board is set up for solderless switch swapping, so if you don't like the switch, it should be relatively straightforward to swap to any plate-mount MX-compatible switch.

I didn't recognize that specific design at first, but it looks like it says 'MMK' in your first image, below the stem. Some googling brought me to this page, which looks like a match: https://www.aliexpress.com/i/1005002999358935.html. Based exclusively on looking at the force curve, it probably feels somewhat similar to Cherry MX reds.

UPDATE: I found the answer! It is a MOMOKA_ERGO: https://www.momoka.co/ergo

Alright! After the help earlier (see above), I did in fact buy the keyboard from the local seller. I thought that it was an Ergodox, but the layout is actually slightly different (note the missing internal column on both sides).

So -- what board is this?

And how can I program it (if at all)?  QMK?

There are no identifying markers. It glows red around the whole body on both sides. USB-C. Everything looks prefabricated / nicely manufactured. The switches are Flamingos.

Glad you figured it out! Good luck getting it customized to your liking  :thumb:
