Looks nice but it doesn't seem to stand out from all the other TKL options out there.

If I recall correctly, the IKBC F-104 , a full size board, had thick double shot PBT caps and came in at 105 Aud, which is about 70-75 USD off the top of my head. If this board comes in at 10$ less, it would be a fantastic deal.

The IKBC F-104 definitely uses the cherry variety. I don't think clears, greys or greens were available however, just the usual blues, reds, browns and blacks.

This probably uses cherry stabs, which aren't available in any any nonled board except for kul afaik, so it would be a great cheap option for a cherry stab tkl, and for some it might be more aesthatically pleasing than a kul since it seems to be more simpler case design.

Looks just like ikbc g87: http://ikbc.com.cn/G87.html#3rd

The good thing about G87 is that it has PCB holes for leds, although im not really sure if they sell factory backlit ones. Maybe this one has too.

those PBT caps look decent but it would be nice to see the thickness  :)

This one is also available for LED DIY...

The white one looks nice. Is that cap laser marked or dye sub?
