Leopold FC660C with Topre switches: I dunno if they are mechanical, membrane, hybrids, but what I know is they are delicious.
They are a great pleasure for writing, and this little but simply great 60% mechanical keyboards are lovely: if you try you can't come back. Oh yes.
Leopold FC660C for writing with a great tool
Because of writing with a great, even with little, keyboard, fill your mind while you throw on the spreadsheet your ideas, your feelings, your emotions: all that you do becomes better.
Yes ma'am, yes sir: writing is always a pleasure with each tool, and when the tool is a keyboard, if you like and love this keyboard, writing is a gift.
This beautiful, amazing mechanical keyboard snatches you, since the first moment you begin to push the keycaps, and under your fingertips, you feel something never tried before.
At least is so for me, I remember my first time with this Topre switches 45 grams as actuation force; not so much for me that I like a bunch 65 gr as Matias Click, or 80 gr as Cherry MX Green.
And more, if you tried Matias click you are well used to a good recoil, but the Topre switch doesn' is great anything about tactile feedback.
Clear, this is a soft bump, but you can't stop to write and is a pleasure.
She's got the magic touch: do you remember the Kiss song?
This keyboard, the Leopold FC660C equipped with Topre switches 45 grams, for a lot of fans is considered the status symbol of 60% keyboard, together with the Happy Hacking Keyboard manufactured by PFU Limited of Japan, rather, more the HHK, very particularly, and without plate mounted switch, and use PCB planning.
However, the Leopold FC660C is a great opportunity for people love 60% keyboards with the amazing Topre switches on a plate mounted: oh yeah, she's got the magic touch.
Given to the great combination of Topre switch planning on the backplate.
Leopold produces too the FC660M equipped with Cherry MX switches: same keyboards in the shape, but totally different by the heart.
The keycaps are very nice to pushing, really great feeling under the fingertips, high-quality PBT lightly rough to the touch that makes more sensibility to the fingers.
The Topre switches are soft, but if you keep the fingers lay above the keycaps, doesn't happen anything, the switch doesn't start accidentally: soft but strong too.
Strong for the high precision typing, and soft for the touching while you write, you can go ahead for a lot of hours with enthusiasm without bore, rather with a real pleasure to writing.
This little great keyboard is planned to do the best, nothing is left to chance: the care of the build, the case with back-flip, the four directional arrows always but always so useful, couldn't lack the 4 deep switch to customize what you prefer, the inspection of Topre switch in Japan, the great feeling with the keycaps, and the amazing and gentle quiet bump strong enough to avoid mistakes given to the sudden touch to the keycaps.
Leopold is a Korean Company founded in 2006 and sights to the high-quality mechanical keyboards, and the FC660C represents one of their flagship that has found a lot of interest by the fans for mkb.
Topre switch is another world: with Leopold, it' clear…
At the moment I'm writing I'm waiting for the Happy Hacking Keyboard Professional 2… well, at the moment the shipping is finished, and the keyboard is under my fingertips, but we are speaking about Leopold FC660C, and the great things that these two keyboards have in common are the Topre switches 45 grams.
Another great thing of Leopold, an important difference between HHKB, is the plate mounted technology, worth to remember one more time because is great idea, and this makes the classic thock Topre full-bodied, Leopold weights 730 grams, is a solid 60% keyboard with the feet stuck firmly on the ground, and you have the comfortable feeling while writing, and the pleasant satisfaction to work with a really great little keyboard.
