The best, but expensive

The fully programmable Ctrl offers excellent build quality, hot-swappable switches, and RGB backlighting, but it’s expensive.

I’ve got the Drop CTRL 10 keyless keyboard. I love it, a bit pricey but has hot swappable switches and sturdy build. Still has all the function keys too :)

Drop CTRL

The Drop CTRL is a TenKeyLess mechanical keyboard with an aluminum frame, a solid metal baseplate, and PBT doubleshot keycaps. It feels very well-built and is available in a range of switch types. It's also hot-swappable, so you can change out the default switches and replace them with a different s...

Nice Drop CTRL, the MOW compliments it.

Garbage

I lovve this keyboard, except this keyboard is horribly dysfunctional. I have now bought it twice, and it simply doesn't work - it does multiple strokes of certain keys. For example, I'll always hit P and it does PPppp a few times. It's now started doing it with T, B, and V after a month of use as w...

A solid keyboard, but not quite $349 solid

But there’s a catch, and that’s that the Mythic Journey’s circuit board only supports 3-pin (aka plate-mount) switches rather than 5-pin PCB-mount switches. Drop’s reasoning for this is that 3-pin switches are more commonly available, but ultimately, 3-pin switches can go in a 5-pin PCB, but not the other way around.

I'm allergic to the Drop CTRL after all the trouble I've had with it but it sure is a nice looking keyboard, really makes this setup pop. I hope your CTRL is doing better than mine.

If this keyboard was a car, it would be a handed down Ford Focus with 200k on the odometer.

I am a professional software developer, that loves video games, and has been working on computers since the 80's when mechanical keyboards where your only options. This keyboard is amazing! Hands down worth every cent. -Edit 11/1/2021: I have had this keyboard for about a year now and the switches a...

I got the drop CTRL and have been very happy with the customizability.

If you want a smaller size, get the ALT.

After that, I bought this tester:
