I wanted to add some Varmilo VA68M love. I got my first VA68M from Massdrop and I think it's an awesome board. It's heavy for a 65%, but not too heavy to move or carry. One of my favorite qualities of this board is when I bottom out the keys, this board stays 'quiet'. I'm not sure how to explain. When I type on other boards, there might be a slight echo or ringing after hitting a key, but this board almost deadens the keystroke. It's a quality I notice with my other Varmilo VA87 board too.
The only minor complaint I have is that my board has a 'Pg Up' LED that stays lit whether the LEDs are on or not. It indicates whether the number row acts as numbers or function keys. You can toggle this, so if you set it as function keys, the 'Pg Dn' LED will be on instead. It's not a huge deal, but I would've preferred another way to indicate this instead of having an LED on all the time, maybe just flash the LED when you toggle.
Anyway, I've had the board for a few months now and it's one of my favorites. It's a great board. Here's my VA68M, Cherry MX Brown switches, white LEDs, and XDA Godspeed keycaps (also from Massdrop).

Chiming in to say that I recently picked up a VA68M and it's an incredible board. I am using Cherry MX Silent Reds with mine and I couldn't be happier. Also, the stock Varmilo keycaps are great quality. They are very thick and have a great texture to them.
I know this drop is expensive, but it's a really awesome board. I recommend it to anyone!

You have good taste sir. Gat Blues on mine with Orange backlight. I thought this would be my endgame board but it looks like I might have to sell it for reasons :/. Absolutely gorgeous, sturdy board with great build quality.

Thanks and the same to you! Your backlit board pic looks great. Sorry you need to part with your board, but I'm sure there will be newer and better endgame boards in your future.

Thanks! I've got a VA87M in the wings as a less expensive and just as functional option but it's going to be painful to sell this, especially since I just got the matching Novelkeys deskpad yesterday. Besides, I'm quite fond of Topre anyway and would likely end up getting the itch to have another one with or without this.
