Lightbulb [Recommend] Good Mechanical Keyboard

After days of researching I'm still a bit confused. What's a good brand and model? In terms of keys, I am more or less confirmed on brown plus 0.4mm o-rings (if I can get them). Basically I need the quietest with tactile feedback.

Keys: Brown + 0.4mm o-rings
Format: XT or TK
Media keys: Preferred but not necessary
LED blings: Not necessary
Palm rest: Needed
Usage: 90% work, 10% gaming
Connection: Wireless if there is. Currently only Filco has Bluetooth 3.0 (Taiwan made) but not sure how good is it.

Models that I have shortlisted
- CM Ultimate XT
- Corsair K70
- DAS Ultimate
- Filco Majestouch Bluetooth (?)
- Type Heaven Topre (?)

For those with no palm rest, I don't mind getting a gel from those OEM shops.

Looking into topfre at the moment but the design is a bit -.-

U just want a mechanical KB to type then just get a filco. It is not cheap but it is a very solid kb. Next up will be ducky.

Thanks but no Razer or Logitech for me. I am using their K800 which is legendary but the past 10-15 years with them have been more misses than hits.

I am quite keen on Clear keys but not sure where I can test one.

Filco prices seems closer towards Type Heaven Topre. Any comments on that one?

It looks nice. If I get K70, it'd be the non-rgb one. I prefer the palm rest than the blings blings lol.
