So I sold my MX Red keyboard and now use a pretty old Logitech G15 or a K400 in the meantime. That is really awful. So imprecise and heavy. And this slows my typing a lot. I am now worried to buy this drop because it has 55g and not 45g switches. I tried to measure the switches of the G15 with euro cents stacked and glued with Tesa tape. Depending on the key I get everything between 60 and 70g.
The RC930 2nd Gen is nice, it has backlighting (now with more zones), topre-like switches, mx keycap compatibility. If it were the 45g version I would have instantly bought it, but now I am not sure.
(PS: at least now with the G15 laying here I know that I still prefer tenkeyless but may buy a extra usb numpad)

For what it's worth, I have a Ducky and Pok3r MX red (and Browns and White), and got this in full size in the recent drop - I find it's as close to Cherry Red as you can get.
I read some people said it's closer to Brown, but for me, because of the mechanics of the switch, in terms of ease of typing, it's closer to Red with a bit more resistance, less the Topre thock.
Ultimately, though, it's one of those things that one has to try out. I have not tried the 45g weighting, so that may be closer to Reds, but I find the 55g gives me just enough more resistance (than Reds) that typing accuracy is better.

My accuracy is AWFUL on reds. If, as described above, the feel is anywhere close to that, this board won't be for me. It's a shame, as I love the sound, and the backlit keycaps on this 2nd gen appear to be MUCH better than the 1st gen...Darn...

My accuracy is also not as good on reds as it is on browns, but with reds+O rings work better - prevents bottoming out (for me).
This RC lies somewhere between a red and a brown, with (for me) leaning towards the red because of how linear it feels. Though honestly, I would say this is more of a crisper/satisfying feeling rubber dome than comparing to a spring loaded mechanical switch.
I still think this board is worth a check out - that initial bump makes all the difference compared to a pure linear keyboard. The price for what you get, and the programming ability is really good.
