The Glorious GMMK Tenkeyless is my personal keyboard that I use each and every day. It is a high quality mechanical gaming keyboard that also looks great in the office. One of the reasons I purchased the Glorious is the removable key switches that allow me to change out the included Gateron Brown switches to customise the keyboard in the future. The Glorious GMMK is also available in full size and compact sizes, as well as in all-white editions.

I personally use the Glorious GMMK Tenkeyless and absolutely love it. If wireless is not a consideration, I would high recommend you look at the the Glorious GMMK. It is available with both a black or white top plate with matching keycaps. The white does look very unique. The Glorious also features a detachable cable (note the full size model still has an attached cable) and has a comprehensive set of RGB lighting options. I prefer my keyboard on the more subtle size, so refrain from the stabbing or flashing settings. One feature of the Glorious that I do like is that all keyboard settings are available directly on the keyboard without the need to install any additional software. This is particularly handy for me, as I use predominately use a Mac and the Glorious software is only available on Microsoft Windows. Even though the Glorious has a Windows layout, you can easily swap over the Alt and Windows keys and remap them in the macOS System Preferences. To make this even better for Mac users, Glorious includes an alternate keycap that has the Glorious logo printed on, so you do not need to use the Windows logo. You can also replace the Escape key with a red keycap which sets the keyboard off nicely. Overall a very well thought out keyboard.

The Glorious is very solid with a rigid aluminium top plate with nicely bevelled edges.

The Glorious is only available with the tactile Gateron MX Brown key switches. However, you can buy a custom Glorious GMMK keyboard that gives you the option to choose from 14 key switches. However, these come as a kit and require assembly.

Value : 85%

The Glorious currently retails for USD 109.95. There are no options available (or needed) that would push the price higher. You can also choose a full custom keyboard where you choose the type of key switches (from 14 available models), keycaps and O-Rings for around USD 120 - 130. However, these come as a kit and require assembly.
