This is a wonderful keyboard. Typing is very pleasurable. I would give it 5/5 except for one thing: some keys cause the base of the keyboard to make a kind of ping echo sound.

Stellar board. What impresses me the most is how full it sounds and how well keys are stabilized.

Keycaps are of very high quality and I even got caps and scroll lock keys with shine through to see when they are active.

I had another Cherry MX Brown keyboard before and this one sounds radically different, I don't know if it is the lubing, the foam on the bottom or just the keycaps but it just feels great.

Keyboard Company has also a great follow up customer support, they are very responsive and have helped me with tracking the shipping abroad when I was almost loosing my hope to receive it. Great job folks.

See you soon for another keeb :)

My previous TKL keyboard was a Ducky One TKL, also with Cherry MX Brown switches, and I don't even think I can compare the two. I actually really enjoyed the Ducky (until it tragically failed), but this Varmilo is incredible. The keycaps feel much higher quality, the switches feel smoother and have a much nicer sound, and subjectively I think it looks a lot nicer than the Ducky One TKL too.

My only complaint with this keyboard would be that it uses mini-USB (yes, mini, not micro), which is a deprecated standard, and has been for a long time now. An updated version would be great, but this doesn't detract from how great this keyboard is.

Lovely keyboard for work to replace the stock HP one which is dreadful.

Typing is now a pleasure and it's just much more comfortable for long periods. It feels stable and is solidly built.

Though new to the mechanical keyboard game, this keyboard has impressed me. It looks sleek, tastefully backlit, not too loud (aesthetically and audibly) and has a lot of heft - you can tell that this thing is built to last. The sheer typing experience though is amazing.

I recently visited my sister, had a lovely meal, but couldn't stop thinking about when I'd be able to go home, open notepad and type some guff.

I'm using Cherry Browns, and they feel great, soft on my fingers. Under extended typing my hands don't feel as tired, and feel I can go on for longer. Amazingly; because the keyboard makes me WANT to type, my productivity has increased. I definitely recommend this product. Though I miss the numpad, I purposefully bought the version that would match the separate numpad should I wish to extend (I do!)

The service from Keyboard Company was also fantastic, great communication and fast shipping.

Amazing keyboard, great quality and switches. Delivery and packaging also very good. Keys sound orgasmic when typing, I love it 11/10 would recommend!
