Feel-wise, is there any significant difference between this keyboard and an LED (not RGB) enhanced Pok3r with clears? The keycaps on the Race 3 are superb, but LEDs become especially useful when the room goes dark -- when your grillfiend is napping, or you're half-watching a streamed flick on your TV for research while inching along writing a story on your laptop, etc.

There should be no difference aside from the keycaps. I don't know the Pok3r's keycaps, so I can't say if the difference will be for the better or for the worse.
Unless, of course, if you buy one with different switches.

I appreciate your attempt to answer the question, but perhaps I didn't make myself clear.
I know that there shouldn't be a difference between the Pok3r and the Race 3.
What I'm asking is whether someone has tried both keyboards and noticed empirical differences -- even subtle ones.
For instance, clears are notorious for resonating with the steel plate unless a dampener is used and the springs aren't too stiff. Vortex is known for addressing that issue more effectively than, say, KBParadise or WASD, but there still could be differences in the feel/sound of different models, batches, iterations, etc.

I have the Poke3r and the Racer--both with clears and neither backlit--and, yes, there is a decided difference in the feel when typing on these two boards. I genuinely prefer the feel and sound of the Pok3r. I pulled a key cap from each and compared the switches directly, then they seem substantially the same.
