Anything else like form factor or backlighting?

If you would like a TKL, I highly recommend the KUL ES-87.  Built like a tank and outstanding customer service from both EK and KUL.

10  people will give you 10 different opinions.  Go the mech keyboard site and they have a search engine where you can pick and choose things like form factor, switch, price, and it will list all the ones that meet your criteria.  *Most boards over $100 should be fairly good quality.

Around $100 and with blues is pretty broad. I'd say get a used Ducky or Filco in that range.

Yes, this is true, not specific.  Best to read some reviews.  Impossible to try them all.  I've only tried KBP and Vortex, I'm buying a Leopold but would love to try Ducky.
