iKBC F87 & F108 Mechanical Keyboards Review

Rating: 8.5.

iKBC are a Taiwanese company who are working with SeaSonic to bring their keyboards to market. Today we are looking at their F87 and F108 keyboards – the only difference between the two is that the F87 is 80% sized while the F108 is a full size board. As such, both feature Cherry MX switches, per-key RGB lighting and double-shot PBT keycaps to deliver a premium-grade experience.

While they may be a new player to the keyboard game, iKBC‘s F87 & F108 keyboards look great on paper, so it will be good to use them for a few weeks and get a feel for how they type and game. What has particularly caught my eye is the on-board RGB control – these keyboards completely do away with software control, but still retain per-key backlighting which will be interesting to look at in more depth.

While exact UK pricing is as yet unclear, the F87 has a European RRP of €126, while the F108 is only €3 more, so these are definitely towards the high-end of the spectrum.
