I received a black Realforce 87U the last time this drop ran. This is not my first Realforce. I already own a white 87U, and a 10th Anniversary 87U. I'm just a fan of this design and, seeing that the new R2 version eschews with the classic, old-school Realforce design, I decided to pick another one.
My opinion remains the same: this is one of the best pre-built keyboards money can get you. The tactility of the 55g domes is sublime, the sound is music to the ears (oh, that glorious thock!), and the build quality is top-notch. If you're not a touch-typist you'll have a hard time using the black version, so keep that in mind.
All in all, you cannot go wrong with this board.
P.S.: I thought about taking off a star due to the PBT spacebars — yeah, they suck ass — but that would be unfair to the greatness of the classic Realforce 87U.
