See More Reviews I love my Pok3rs but this kb is a step above for the following reasons:
I programmed the right side 4 buttons for the lighting and left the arrows even though I'll probably never use them.
I can't speak to the keycaps, I never used them.
All that said, this was $60 more than my Pok3r RBG and $75 more than my Pok3r (no lighting), although I then went out and got new cases for them, so the spend ends up the same or more so consider that when purchasing as well.
Given that the Alt high profile is now available at a higher price, but with RGB, USB-C etc. for a slightly higher price, the Tada68 may be a tougher decision. I'll admit, I have an Alt on the way...
I've been using this as my office KB with o-rings on the keycaps (brown switches), it is quieter than my coworkers on their 2018 MB Pros and whatnot, probably due to the weight, but I feel like they're going to blame me for not working as hard as them.
- Solid. The case is solid, it feels like a brick. This kb easily weighs twice what a Pok3r weighs. I would not use it as my portable kb. The stabilizers also seem more uniform and the spacebar does not chatter like the Pok3r.
- Style. The case has high profile sides and the backing plate has a satin stainless sheen to it that gives it a finished look.
- Using the QMK software I was able to configure it without much hassle (although I did use my Windows box instead of my Mac for simplicity sake). The big win over the Pok3r is that if I get another kb, I can just load up my settings and go. See this https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware/tree/master/keyboards/tada68
