  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I own a Corsair K70 with MX Red at home and I have a Vortex Core with MX Clears at work. When I started typing on the Varmilo with Silent Black (!) it took maybe 30 seconds until I was scrambling to find my wallet to order another Varmilo with Silent Blacks. Those switches are pretty much dead silent, you almost can’t hear the typing and even if you make a conscious effort to bottom out, it’s still quieter than some of the membrane and scissor switches here in the office. I really like the Core and everything, but the Varmilo with it’s customization, TKL layout and switch selection (especially with the silent black switches) is pretty much exactly what I had been looking for.

  2. Rated 4 out of 5

    To sum it up, the VA88M is a very good keyboard with brilliant build quality, especially the keycaps but with a few minor downsides.

    First of all it is worth mentioning that I got a VA88M with MX Silent Red, so one of the main aspects I was looking for, then buying this keyboard was that it had to be very quiet.
    And that is, besides the general build quality, one of the best aspects of this keyboard: it is really, really quiet. Especially compared to MX Red or MX Brown. The VA88M manages this, without loosing the “mecha” characteristics: it still feels like MX Red but subjective I would say that the MX Silents are a bit heavier to push.

    One of the downsides, I mentioned before, is that the light doesn’t shine through the keycaps: not really bad if you know how to write in 10-finger-system but still a downside.
    Another negative aspect worth mentioning here is the short USB cable and a metallic “kling” noise if you accidently let the keys “flip” up.

    All in all, I would recommend the VA88M to everyone who either want’s to have a very quiet mechanical keyboard with very good build quality or a personalized tkl keyboard with very good build quality or both together.
