If you want a tkl go with the CTRL if you are okay with a 65% go with the ALT, both have hotswap PCBs, which will let you experiment with different switches.

It's not using Cherry switches but still costs $100 with only basic RGB as its defining feature. 
You can get a $50 keyboard generic Chinese board with the exact same quality and switches. If the money isn't a big deal then just buy something more expensive and better.

^ and it isn't a hot-swap board, and the cable isn't removable, and the caps are lasered ABS. Pretty poor value for the price.

context?

You could argue that there are better options like the glorious gmmk or gergo
Nice call on the GMMK, I completely forgot about that one as a good starting point, with RGB lighting and hotswap PCB.

It's not an Ergodox =  No Buy

Tp4 recommends

ERGODOX.


I could have grabbed one of those for a song (comparatively) on an auction website not too long ago. The only ergo keyboard I have ever tried is the old beige M$ ones. I didn't mind it, but I didn't particularly like it either. I owned at least one for years. I might, still, maybe. I can't say I used it more than once, just to see what it was like.
