Really it's the majority that is plate mount. It's much simpler to list the PCB mount for you to avoid then.
So here is a list of PCB mount boards you are not looking for that have no plate stock (though aftermarket plate is available for some):
Cherry G80 line, Vortex/KBC/KBT Poker/Pure/Race, Plum 96, Neo Zelia.

Pretty much anything else you will find has a plate.

I am interested in a list of PCB mounted keyboards that have all their keys.
I am guessing only the Cherry G80 has all its keys?  And the rest are mini keyboards?  (if anyone happens to know off-hand?)

I want to own a PCB mounted keyboard or 3 but I never did find one good enough for me so I just gave up on it and forgot about it, until I saw this msg.
Rosewill RK-9000RE #1 (Broke on day 26, fixed with Scotch Tape on day 42, barely holding together)
Rosewill RK-9000RE #2 (Lubed, still in the box.  I am afraid to use it because it will break like the first one)

Plum 96 have layout similar to CM TK. Neo Zelia is standard tenkeyless.

Thanks  IvanIvanovich.  That makes the selection process easier.
