Vortex's newest 75% keyboard, the 83-key Race 3! Do you need dedicated arrow keys that your 60% doesn't provide, but don't want the size of a TKL? A 75% may be just for you! Most of the keys are in the "normal" spot, so there's nearly no learning curve for this keyboard.
The Race 3 features a silver anodized CNC case and cone feet. It also has DSA keycaps with dye-sub legends in a vintage grey colorway with 19 extra RGBY and MAC keycaps.
3 programmable layers on top of the default layer. Assembled in Taiwan.
Key switch damage resulting from the removal of keycaps is not covered under warranty.

One of the best keyboards I have ever used. I am in love with it.
75% is the perfect size as I have to use the Arrow Keys every few minutes to do tasks at work. The included additional color keys are fantastic.
MX Browns are amazing, medium noise and not enough click noise for the office.
The build quality is fantastic. I am going to get Vortex Race 3 with MX Clears if it ever becomes available. The included key caps are fantastic. No need to replace them. My Order arrived in Canada in 10 days. Very happy with the service from Mechanical Keyboards.
love this board so much, perfect size, great looks, nice and clicky without being too loud. caps lock has a LED to display status.
only downside is the micro usb connection as far as I'm concerned, I'd prefer USBC or even type A in this context. I worry about the long term durability of the connection but we shall see.
This board is one of my favorites. A lot of people complain about the non-standard top row but the keycaps it comes with are great. PBT, dye-sub, dsa profile, and the Mac AND rgby modifiers that are included add up to me not giving two hecks about a non standard top row. I currently just have the red esc and ctrls on and its beauty brings a tear to my eye. It feels as good as it looks, too. The construction quality is probably the best I've seen on any keyboard, and the cherry browns are probably my favorite cherry switch. I tried the screw-in feet for a bit but I prefer it sitting flat without them.
As far as non-topre boards go, this is my number one.
