I already had the Tester68 (aka TES68, CIY's cheapest board at about 20$) when I ordered the KBM84Pro and it's truely a big improvement in so many areas:
* flippable feet
* wired connection
* can switch between Windows + Mac layout
...and most importantly:
* the stabilizers are WAY less rattly
The keyboard feels amazing and it's surprisingly heavy considering what it's made of and it even has lube. I would consider it a steal for such a price but it did have a few wrongs, one isn't that crucial but in the preview it is shown you get 2 AAA batteries but I only got 1 not that horrible because I can buy ones but is annoying and the other thing is that one of the plate mount stabs is stuck and isn't coming out and I will need to open it completely to try to fix it. overall a great keyboard if only minor problems that are fixable.
