I have narrowed my choices down to the above, though if you have better choices, I am open to suggestions. This will be an office keyboard that I may or may not bring home to game with from time to time.

I do not see anything in their build quality that justifies the enormous price premium.

I have that Ducky Zero board myself and I love it. I'm even going to type out an extra sentence just so I have an excuse to do more typing on it.

The way they print keycaps. The use a custom sublimination process in which they have a white keytop that inserts into a black skirt. The white top is heated so hot that the plastic is melted, and they set black dye on it so that it will cover everything except the letter in black. The dye subliminates into the melted plastic and becomes part of it, so no matter what happens, the lettering will never rub off or fade in the slightest. It's an expensive process, and they're the only company that does it.

Deck also uses Costar stabilizers under the long keys, which feel like actual mechanical keys. Pretty much every other backlit keyboard besides CM Quickfire boards uses Cherry stabilizers, which feel mushy like membrane keyboards.

There is an individual LED under every single key on Deck boards, as opposed to most boards which will have some number of LED's and use light diffusers to spread the light around under all the keys.

EDIT: I should also mention it isn't an enormous premium. Filco Majestouch V2 is close in price. It's only excessive compared to the <$100 Cooler Master Quickfire boards that uses Costar stabilizers like Deck does.

Most people on these boards however recommend Corsair, which are around $130 and don't have the build quality to justify it, and Ducky, which cost about $150+ because you have to import them. The reason I recommend Deck is because if you're going to buy a Ducky, you may as well spend a little more and get something far better.

the font on the deck keycaps looks terribly childish and they span the entire cap, meaning the backlighting doesn't even light them well so they look even worse in the dark.
