IQUNIX ZX75! 75% keyboard with encoder knob coming soon to international buyers.
But after looking at this keyboard from a few angles it is one good looking keyboard. Also I thought this model would be wired only, but it mentions 2.4Ghz so probably has the same trademark hidden dongle behind trim piece somewhere. And don't quote me on this, but I heard somewhere recent iQunix models are now coming with Gateron stabs instead of the horrible to assemble Costar stabs on previous models.

[Keyboard] Punkston TH61 60% Mechanical Optical Keyboard ($29.99)
I could not stand the switch top housing wobbling and swapped with Gateron browns I had lying around. No more switch housing rattle and also softly tactile. I also could not use my standard cherry switch opener or my outemu switch opener with those H&J switches. That is how different they are in dimension.

Gateron CJs don’t have north facing interference??
Gateron updated their top housings in 2021 to have a fillet to prevent north facing interference. If the top housing has the Gateron Logo facing outside, it should have no north facing interference.

How many of you actually like Gaterons over Cherry?
Like all Gateron, Cherry and Outemu browns are ass. They are very bad tactile switches and scratchy. I would really recommend you to try using actual good tactile switches and preferably lube them for a much better experience.

My cheap ass have used a Razer Blackwidow 2013 since its release, Need something new asap
As mentioned roccat keyboards look nice, no clue on the quality, tesoro has some good keyboards but the software is eh, then you have corsair, logitech and all of the big names. As for "clicky" switches, you're looking for blue colored ones, be it kaihl, gateron, or cherry.

/r/MechanicalKeyboards Ask ANY question, get an answer
I've tried Cherry (hate all of them), Gateron (I liked the feel of blacks but they are still a bit scratchy and have a tinny sound when bottoming out), and Box Kaihls (also liked the blacks). I've never experienced a silent, filmed, or lubed switch. I also own a Razer Huntsman for gaming; the optical switches are really smooth the but the sound is loud/tinny and the low-force and low actuation make it terrible for typing. I'm considering Zealios and Zilent but they do not offer sample packs right now.

wanna make a custom kb but dont know what budget switch to get
Kailh and Gateron make great clone Cherry switches which are better in my opinion (for most options). Theyll usually never be above 25 cents per switch so pretty affordable, anything other than the big 3 brands and you could end up paying more that what you want.

is this even normal?? everytime i pull the switches there's always a broken housing. can someone help me? I couldn't avoid it 😭
One way that might or might not minimize the top housing breaking is to twist the switch remover tool so the force is applied more towards the corner of switch housing where it's stronger than the middle. But that's not really a definite way to prevent the top housing from breaking. You can also try using a plastic wedge tool and wedge it between the switch and plate to loosen it before using the switch remover tool to remove it. Btw not all switch can fit into Outemu hotswap sockets, like Gateron or Kailh switches can't.
