  • I've had this keyboard for a couple months and have been very pleased. It is my first mechanical keyboard. It feels very nice to type on and the MXCherry Clear switches are not too loud. The keyboard quality feels good. For the price, this is a better deal than many other keyboards given the metal frame and PBT key caps. I had planned on buying a Code keyboard, but this one seemed better in almost every way. I am not using any of the function keys.

  • This is the best keyboard I have ever owned. The only reason I ever had to get a new one is because I spilled a complete drink ontop of my old one. I really don't know why this brand isn't more popular that Logitech or some other big name. These keyboards are slick, compact, customizable, sturdy, responsive, everything positive. I honestly don't think I'll ever use a different keyboard for my home.

  • No wireless connection, no flashy LED light show, just a top quality board at an affordable price.

    The space bar stabilizer is quite good. I swapped the caps-lock & left-control keys, which was easy to do (toggle DIP switch 1, swap the 2 key caps). The light for caps lock is still at the original key location, but I'm OK with that. This board does a nice job staying put on my desk, and that's partly because of its weight. None of the keys make any extra/unwanted noise or cause any noticeable vibration.

    The only caveat is that you need to know what switches you prefer. You don't want to desolder 87 switches and then solder 87 new ones on, so choose carefully. I chose browns -- they give a modest yet satisfying tactile bump, and (to my ear) they have a pleasing sound. I think linear switches enable higher performance (e.g. wpm) but I still prefer to have a little tactile feedback. Whatever switches you personally like, this is an excellent board and I recommend it unreservedly.

  • Leopold has some of the best stock keyboards if not the best stock keyboards for the price. Extremely solid build construction as well as factory included silencing foam on the spacebar and inside the keyboard to reduce acoustic resonance. Their keycaps are also very high quality for stock, I've had multiple keyboards (multiple varmilos, ducky, hhkb, leopold fc660c, random amazon mechs, Das, customs (novatouch norbauer case), just a lot of keyboards in general. This sentiment has been reflected elsewhere but basically Leopold makes end game stock keyboards if you're not looking to do any sort of upgrading. I've spent thousands on mechanical keyboards and can definitely say that you're not wasting money if you choose one of their boards, had this one (f750r) for around 6 months and there's been absolutely no issues, as well as owning the Fc660c for around 3 years with zero issues. It's just a straight-to-the-point high quality keyboard.

  • For my first "high-end" mechanical keyboard, the quality of the key caps, stabilizers, and overall build quality is quite lovely! This keyboard is a joy to use, and I love the color combination offered here! Very subtle and understated, but still something more interesting than a solid black or white or gray.

    The only thing I've noticed as a negative is the space bar has a bit of a quiet, hollow "squeak" to it. I'm not certain on the perfect solution, so I'll have to look into how to get that noise to go away. It's not noticeable when I have music or a podcast going, but in silence it becomes very obvious. Not sure about the MX brown switches I chose, but as a solid "middle-of-the-road" option, it's a great introduction into the world of keyboards!

    Other than that, this keyboard is an absolute win! I love using it and I love looking at it! It feels great and catches the eye in the perfect way :)

  • Really happy with this board. I'm coming from a CODE v2 w/clears dampeners. Wanted to go the other direction and get much quicker and click-y action. It's delivered and to boot, feels like a much more solid build versus my CODE (which I still use on another machine).

  • I had the most unfortunate experience after spending so much time researching on which keyboard to get as my first modern mechanical keyboard, and settled on the FC750R with brown switches. It's a beautiful and solid keyboard, and the typing experience was great. Unfortunately, the "b" key switch was faulty and near impossible to press if you press it at an angle or at any of the edges, essentially making the keyboard unusable unless you only use a single hand for typing and hit the key perfectly at the center all the time.

    MK support was great, and after sending a video recording of the faulty key (this was annoying, but I didn't mind it too much), I was able to return it for a full refund. I can't give a higher score due to the issue resulting in me being unable to use the keyboard normally. This experience has made me wary about buying a leopold keyboard again, although it's possible that I just had terrible luck with my first purchase.

  • Absolutely Amazing! This keyboard has been highly rated online as well as in the Mechanical Keyboard Subreddit. I have the Cherry Mx Clears and couldn't be more happier. The build is fantasty and the keys feels great. This keyboard has noise reduction built in, so it doesn't disturb those around you. The keys have a nice texture to them and can tell these will last a very long time. If you're looking for a mechanical keyboard with a noticible bump, I recommend the Cherry Mx Clears, but if you want a slight bump on your keys, the brown is a safer option imo. Overall, this is a definite 5/5 and highly recommend this keyboard for any veterans as well as entering the mechanical keyboard world!

  • I bought this keyboard a year or two ago and never got around to reviewing it; figured I'd wait a while to see how the double shot PBT key caps held up to some use. All the boards I've had in the past have had ABS key caps and they've all had their legends wear down in the most heavily trafficked areas, typically around WASD as I play lots of games. The ABS caps also tend to get shiny as they wear and sort of lose their texture. Anyway, that problem is entirely gone with this new Leopold. Haven't had any wear whatsoever on any of the legends or the key caps themselves. Fantastic build quality. No flexing, creaking, or pinging. Love the color scheme. Also love the dip switches on the back that let me disable the Windows key so I'm not accidentally pressing it in games. Only real negative I can think of is the removable cable being mini USB rather than USB type C.

    Altogether, I'd say this is my favorite keyboard in my collection now. Edges out my Filco TKL on account of the Leopold's far superior key caps. Once you've tried PBT, ABS just doesn't compare.

  • Best keyboard I've ever owned. not even close. I've owned Filco, CoolMaster, MKTypist, Code, SteelSeries, Razer.all are good keyboards, but this is without a doubt the best. I got this with the Cherry Silent Red's. Its super sturdy with a solid weight, the keys have an outstanding feel. I'm going to buy a second one for the office (once they open it back up).

  • As title said, this keyboard sounds awful. There is a high and loud mechanical ping sound - a sound that occurs without physically pressing the key down! I lightly touch the top of the keyboard and it makes the noise. I reached out to MK and they said this was a normal sound. That seems odd since I'm not pressing down the keys and it happens. I like the colors and everything seems like it would be good quality. It's just the bad ping.

  • Needed to get a silent keyboard to keep the family happy during the quarantine epoch. Given the reputation of Leopold I was surprised my new FC750R with Cherry silent reds is not so silent. Springs are audible on many keys, and the spacebar in particular has a less than subtle thunk on the upstroke. Not nearly as quiet as the MK Typist I have at the office, which I guess I won't be seeing for a while. This is surely nitpicking, but I couldn't help hoping for better stock sonic performance.

    The keycap quality is phenomenal, perhaps the nicest PBTs I've felt, and the board build is clearly premium. Aesthetically it is beautiful.

  • I'm a big fan of this keyboard. The FC750R is my first mechanical board and I was a bit nervous about bringing it to an office where my coworkers sit close together. I don't have other keyboards to compare it to, but the combination of Cherry MX Browns, WASD red/0.2mm o-rings, and the Leopold board make for a great balance between clicky feedback and quiet acoustics.

    I really feel like I'm getting what I paid for in the build quality of this board. This is a keyboard I could throw at the window next to my desk in the event I need to create my own emergency exit.

    The blue/grey palette is beautiful, but note that the picture from MK makes the colors look lighter than they really are.

    My only complaints would be:
    1. The Caps Lock light is fixed in the traditional location of the Caps Lock key, so it looks a little odd if you swap your Ctrl key to that position.
    2. The Caps and Scroll lock lights are a bright blue. It's not a big deal, but the color of the lights and the color of the blue key caps aren't similar.
    2. The connectivity is still Micro-USB. It'd be nice to see a USB-C connection in the next model.

    A few comments about using o-rings:
    I tried both WASD blue/0.4mm and red/0.2mm o-rings on this board. I was convinced I needed the dampening effect of the larger blue o-rings to minimize the sound, but after a week of using them, I couldn't get over the mushy-ness they added while bottoming out. The smaller red o-rings still provided a desirable sound reduction while closely preserving the out-of-the-box feel of the keys. More importantly, I loved the travel reduction provided by the red o-rings. I found it difficult to switch to a keyboard with 4.0mm travel on each key. The 0.2mm reduction from the red o-rings is much more noticeable than you'd think, and it makes this board truly great for someone who bottoms out when they type.

  • Would buy just for the keycaps, 1.5mm PBT, doubleshot which is almost unheard of on PBT, and little to no warp on larger keys. Every key but the spacebar has no warp, and the spacebar has less warp than enjoyPBT spacebars.

    Oh, the general build quality is pretty good too.

  • TL:DR:
    I have been using this keyboard at work with Red silent switches and it is the absolute best bang for the buck I could find! Internal dampening pad to quiet things down, plate mounted switches for a solid feel, feet to bring the angle up, double-shot PBT keycaps for looks and durability, removable USB cord, genuine Cherry MX switches; this keyboard has it all and for a little over $100, it just can't be beat!

    Story time:
    When I started my search for an 80% tenkeyless keyboard I could bring to work, I knew there were at least two requirements that had to be met.
    1. It can't be expensive (relative to the higher end of the market)
    2. It can't be much louder than a membrane keyboard
    I didn't care about back lighting or RGB, in fact I kind of preferred not having any LEDs at all. If the right keyboard came along and it had lighting, I knew I wouldn't have been upset though.

    At home I have an 80% TKL with Gateron Red switches which are wonderful for gaming, but I find they are on the side of too light for my typing duties at work. With that in mind, I initially leaned towards finding a switch with a heavier press like black switches. Nevertheless, I had thought that getting some red, black, or brown switches would satisfy both of my requirements, but while they are fairly cost effective and readily available, none were quiet enough for how I type. I thought about going with O-rings or QMX clips to dampen the sound, but my own experience with O-rings were not not wonderful. O-rings seem to either give you a mushy feeling with a much quieter down-stroke or only a slightly softer feeling with not much dampening (depending on thickness), but no O-ring will quiet the up-stroke. QMX clips, on the other hand, seem to do a good job of dampening without making the feel "mushy", but cost too much and could possibly not even fit on the switches (depending on the plate and switch housings). That pushed me into looking at the various dampened switches that are available.

    Search after search I kept finding word that the Zeal PC Zilent V2 switches were pretty much the best all around, but costly and hard to find. Sure enough, I couldn't find any TKL keyboards readily available at a reasonable price point. Many reviews found that the Matias Quiet Click and Quiet Linear switches were really quiet and had good feeling overall, but I found too many forum post about longevity issues for my liking and started looking elsewhere again. Topre switches are known to be a wonderful blend of mechanical feel with membrane quietness although the cost shows as I couldn't find any TKL keyboards at a reasonable price. Cherry MX Red silent switches were fairly easy to find and at reasonable prices, but knowing how light my Gateron Red switches are and wanting something heavier meant I had to look for Black silent switches. After finding only a few manufacturers that offered Cherry MX Black silent switches in an 80% TKL format, my options were pretty limited and little bit over the budget I had aimed for. This is when I started looking into modding.

    While modding switches means you can start with nearly any keyboard or DIY kit and build it into something you could consider "perfect for me", the time it takes, the money spent on trial and error, and the numerous things that could fail to please along the way meant I really had to really commit if I were going to do it. I did thoroughly consider it; getting some generic Red switch based keyboard, throwing in some stiffer springs, adding lube, creating internal dampening, etc.; but at the end of the day I did not want to de-solder 87 switches (including any LEDs) from a PCB just to open them up for modding. Back to looking at off-the-shelf switches I went.

    With all of the other aforementioned switches taken off the list, I was down to the Cherry MX Red silent switches. Lots of different manufacturers, lots of different 80% TKL offerings, lots of different looks. That is when this grey and blue beauty showed up in my results and I was instantly in love. The specs, switches, price, looks, reputability, and format were all to my liking so I went ahead and ordered it! After using it for a few weeks now, I can safely say that Leopold nailed it with the FC750R!

    Everything about this keyboard has impressed me in terms of quality and durability; it simply feels like any good mechanical keyboard should. There is no flex when typing, the key caps feel incredibly well made, the removable USB cable is no frills and routes through the embedded cable channels with ease, the legs are sturdy and offer the slight height adjustment you have come to expect, the plastic housing is surprisingly solid; it is overall a high quality, no frills keyboard! Speaking to the Cherry MX Red silent switches, the keyboard's internal dampening pad in combination with the silent switches makes this the quietest mechanical keyboard I have ever used, barely louder than the cheap Dell membrane keyboard it replaced! The springs definitely feel heavier than the Gateron Red switches I have in my other TKL (I'd say maybe 5-10g heavier), the actuation and feel of the travel is also much better, and the dampening is great with being quiet without making the feeling "mushy", not only when bottoming out but also when returning the key to the top! It is always a pleasure to type with!

    I only really have a few small gripes. First, the manual is certainly a bit rough being translated from Korean but gets the point across. Two, one thing I did not see mentioned in the manual and had to find online was the "Fn" key layer which includes media controls, repeat rate adjustment, and key-rollover mode switching. Third, the hardware based key remapping is limited and does not help if you would like to have a right-hand Windows key instead of the menu key.

    Overall, if you are looking for an 80% TKL keyboard that has all of the core features you need, none of the extra frills that drive up cost, a high standard in build quality, a great aesthetic that doesn't compromise functionality, and a price point that screams value, look no further than the Leopold FC750R!
