Good ISO TKL keyboard, fast delivery.
PBT keycaps, MX brown switches. What else do you need?

A week in and so far thoroughly enjoying the keyboard. The stabilisers are silent and the keys feels terrific. I have noticed that the enter key has picked up small marks from general use. They're barely noticeable and only when in direct light but I'm not sure if this will affect the key in the long term. Not currently an issue, just an observation. Absolutely love this keyboard and as as my first mechanical, I think I made the perfect choice. Highly recommended!

Fantastic keyboard. Had a fair few lower end mechanical keyboards in the past, but this feels next level thanks in part to the lubbed genuine cherry stabilisers used in this keyboard and solid build quality.

An important note to make though is that as the keycaps font is black on dark grey, in certain low light conditions it can be hard to identify the keys so keep that in mind.

Very happy with this keyboard - solid and comfortable. Good service from Keyboardco too.

Absolutely in love with this keyboard. Build quality is astounding, so hefty but in the best way, just screams quality. Aesthetically just so clean, looks absolutely fantastic, every keystroke is bliss. Varmilo has a reputation for being one of the very best brands for prebuilt keyboards and I can see why. If youre on the fence I highly recommend just taking the plunge, I honestly cant see anyone regretting this purchase.

Lockdown meant that my normal left handed keyboard was stranded in the office. Eventually succumbed to buying another keyboard for the home office to replace the standard one. I never user the number pad, so completely pointless having a keyboard with one. Wish I had done it a lot sooner. Liking the feel of this already, even if it means getting used to not having the clickity-clack of what I've been used to in the office.

My first Varmilo keyboard, coming from a Das Ultimate. This is a much better typing experience. Feels really solid and makes a beautiful noise whilst typing.

A joy to use.

This keyboard is very pleasant to use. I picked it up as an complement to the Durgod Taurus 320 that I already had, and now I enjoy using it much more than the Durgod!

This keyboard is really solid with a great build quality. The Cherry MX Brown has a satisfying feedback and clack, but might be too noisy for some esp. in a shared office. I agree with other reviews that the dark text on the grey keycaps can be hard to read at first, but I've gotten used to it now and don't have a problem.

I didn't like the USB cable provided with the keyboard as it's a thick black plastic, so I replaced it with a braided grey, but they're hard to find as it's USB Mini. Also the slot for the cable is really narrow so I had to cut away the plastic sheath on the replacement cable to get it to fit. Looks great now though so worth the effort 😎

The delivery information, packaging and tracking was superb. I would definitely buy from KeyboardCo again.

Really thrilled that I pulled the trigger on this keyboard, this is my first keyboard with PBT caps and I can't say enough good things about them. The elevated keys are a little high so I'll likely invest in a wrist rest to account for that. I'm really happy with KeyboardCo's service as well, they were very quick to reply to my questions and to ship the item.

My first mechanical keyboard, and what a change it makes. Be prepared for a new, weird desire to constantly want to type!

Item arrived quickly and well packaged, it's an absolute joy to type on (Cherry MX Brown switches), it looks great, and it feels solid and well-built.

If you, like me, have been thinking about whether or not to purchase a mechanical keyboard, i can honestly say it's worth it and you should definitely go ahead!

If you've been using a laptop keyboard, or a keyboard with a slim profile, I would also recommend getting a wrist rest to compensate for the elevated level of the keys.

Great service from Keyboardco as well - would highly recommend.

My first TKL mechanical keyboard, and wanted to get a really nice one which would last. I am very glad I picked this one; it's very high quality and a pleasure to type on. I like the MX Browns a lot too! Also delivery was very quick and it was packaged very safely, as you'd expect for an expensive product like this :)

Can recommend it highly - its great!
