    My Lofree arrived today.

    Fits nicely on my desk, pretty happy although I definitely prefer the Cherry keys than those of Gateron. Thanks for pointing it out @Gareth Halfacree

    I have bought a cheapo (Qisan) / Magicforce 83 mech board as a compact secondary board #dontjudgeme

    I'd like to highlight the arrow keys as they blend into the rest of the keys, being squished right next to rt shift and rt ctrl.

    I see there are a number of keycap styles (switches are MX brown clones), and wondered if there was a straightforward way to work out what they are.

    They're definitely sculpted, but I couldn't say with confident if they were Cherry std or SA for example.

    I can see a full size mech board being needed as my daily drive some time soon...

    Probably OEM profile, which is similar to Cherry, but taller. [edit] Didn't realise the post was so old... didn't mean to necro. Soz.

    It lives!
    *Update*
    I bought a white Corsair keycap set locally and swapped over the arrow keys as proposed and also the esc key for some balance.

    Since then, I have bought a blue illuminated full size Ducky with browns for work, and more importantly a Ducky One Two TKL with RGB illumerated reds.
    It's lit up keys are great for gaming IMHO
