Topre Realforce RGB Keyboard Review

Rating: 8.5.

While it is very possible you have never heard of Topre, the Japanese keyboard manufacturer has teamed-up with Seasonic to bring their Realforce RGB keyboard to market. The stand-out feature of the Realforce RGB is undoubtedly the Actuation Point Changer (APC) technology – this lets you adjust the actuation point of the keyboard’s switches on a per-key basis, with a choice of 1.5mm, 2.2mm and 3mm actuation distances available.

While we were excited to get hands-on with the Topre Realforce RGB, it is worth mentioning the price straight-away: $279 in the US. In the UK, Topre distribute their keyboards through The Keyboard Company, and they currently have the Realforce RGB listed for £258.98. In any case, it is a lot of money for a keyboard, so let’s get right to it and see if it’s worth buying.
