The NYM96 is an incredibly solid keyboard due to its fantastic (2.3kg!) aluminium case and its slight angle make it especially nice to type on. I ordered mine with Cherry browns which sound and feel markedly better and more premium on this board than in comparison with my K70 with browns. The board is well proportioned, and the layout is very functional, although I do find it strange that the minus key on the numpad is actually delete by default.
Where it falls short is on the supplied keycaps: they do differ from the ones pictured in that the legends on the grey keys are pad printed (not laser etched like the black keys) and are noticeably thick and rough under your fingers. Some of these legends are also noticeably off-centre and their colouring appears to be inconsistent and almost dirty. This is a board that deserves better keycaps and although the layout of this board does somewhat restrict choices, I highly encourage doing your fingers some justice and kitting this board out with some quality caps, or requesting/ordering the barebones option.
Would recommend to a friend.
