Hi, my tecware phantom is dying on me after some time and looking to get a nice cherry brown kb!

Currently looking to upgrade and get either

Leopold FC660M or Ducky One 2 / Miya Pro

Anyone has used these kbs before can give some feedback?

Much appreciated!

Both quality brands. Just pick one. Leopold is known to be more premium as far as I'm aware.

What happened to your tecware phantom?
hmm and my tecware simply refuses to die. extremely durable and reliable for me. i used it daily.

Used about 1 going 2 years! Recently some of the keys turning unresponsive and I've actually used the 3 extra switches they provided to switch out already.. Planning to switch some of the keys that i dont use like the Fn keys to counter the issue but deciding on getting a new kb first before this one totally die on me haha

btw, is xtremesolutions the only solution for getting such mech kbs? or are there other alternatives out thr?

Anyone has used either, or has advise?

Sold my G213 and got a Phantom TKL.
The palm rest on G213 is non-removable but the RGB/Keys are programmable via software whereas Phantom RGB are limited and Keys are not programmable.

Y’all can lookup E-Element Z77/Z88 keyboards on Taobao, quite cheap can get less than SGD$50 and comes with outemu switches like the Tecware Phantom. Build quality is not bad, used for 1 year plus without any issues.

Taobao can buy cheap outemu switch keyboard easily for $26 sgd around there. Just that no true rgb backlit. Most are just one line one colour light or only single colour light keyboard. In fact the tecware phantom is actually a rebranded taobao keyboard that cost only $26. Difference is only that the tecware phantom have per key rgb making it more expensive.

However if you want to buy true per key rgb backlit keyboard with outemu tecware phantom is good choice. I guess the per key rgb will make the keyboard cost alot more.

Isn't G213 a membrane keyboard? It's not worth it.

Try Ducky. Heard a lot of good reviews on it
