    What is a "Topre switch," and how could a keyboard be worth $250? We answer those questions and more in this review of the REALFORCE RGB keyboard.

    When it comes to typing and keyboards, there is the gamut of cheap $10 keyboards that are tossed in a box, and the expensive, hard-to-find and coveted ones. Topre's REALFORCE RGB 108-key Backlit Premium Mechanical Keyboard falls into the latter camp, and it's priced at $249. Yes, you read that right.
    If you just spat out your drink, first my apologies for the cleanup. In case you are curious if such a keyboard is worth it today, I'll give you my review on this expensive but fascinating made-in-Japan accessory.

    There is a bit of history and intrigue about Topre that I would like to discuss, because the technology differs from Cherry MX and other mechanical design significantly. Before I begin, though, let's get the raw spec sheet and feature set out of the way.
