The whitefox is fantastic. Really a phenomenal board. They’re a bit difficult to track down and buy. The TADA68 is cheaper and there’s also the redscarf 68. If you’re looking at something you can buy and just get in the mail, the Magicforce 68 is a great entry to this world. Good board. Affordable. On amazon prime! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01E57PT4A/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i8huybV3X804M
I recommend gateron brown over cherry brown fwiw. A very minor difference but it’s a better switch.
Thanks, I had no idea they existed. This was the only keyboard I could find with them https://www.amazon.com/Mechanical-Keyboard-GATERON-Magicforce-Qisan/dp/B01E57PT4A/ref=sr_1_sc_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1465596836&sr=8-2-spell&keywords=Gatreon but it’s on Amazon so it’s not really feasible to buy in Australia unless I want to wait a couple of months or spend a huge amount on shipping. I’m not too worried about the keys necessarily being smooth but just as long as I’m able to type really fast with minimal mistakes like I used to on my old membrane keyboard a few years ago. It’s of course going to take time to get back up to that point on any new keyboard but I have given MX Browns and Reds a fair run for the 3+ years I’ve used them.
It’s listed under Qisan on Amazon, but that’s the MagicForce 68. There are cheaper versions, down to $40 based on different switches. The brown switches are a good, general switch and Gateron’s is smoother than the Cherry MX with a slightly more noticeable bump (using CMX browns at work on an RK9100 and a MF68 @ home w/ Gateron browns). I’d go with Gateron switches for brown ($63) or red/black, Outemu for blue ($40) – depending on what type you want.
If you want a different switch type, you can scroll around at different keyboard options or re-search for MagicForce 68 and look for other options.
The first keyboard I got was a Qisan Magicforce. It’s cheap, yet surprisingly good quality (if you get the Gateron brand switches). https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01E57PT4A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I actually have one with brown switches that I would be willing to part with, since I now only use my Planck and Atreus. A new one only runs around $63 on Amazon though.
Responding to your desire for wireless, I believe the AnnePro comes with Bluetooth. It can be had for sub-$100 also, I believe on certain sites. It’s a quality board also.
I actually have one from MD with gateron browns. I just ordered another board to replace it, but it won’t get here until Thursday night. I want to make sure I like the replacement, but if I do I’d let it go. At work so I don’t have pictures but it’s this one: https://www.amazon.com/Mechanical-Keyboard-GATERON-Magicforce-Qisan/dp/B01E57PT4A
Mine has the blue/gold LEDs though. If you’re interested I’ll try to get pics tonight. Then on Friday I’ll let you know if I want to let this one go and we can talk price, if you don’t get other offers.
I would go with Gateron Browns instead. A little cheaper and feel better.
Omg, it’s so small. Can’t wait for mine to arrive. Just ended up getting it from Amazon because the idea of saving $15 for a multi-month wait sounds absurd. Unless one wants a rarer switch of course.
EDIT: Here’s some Amazon links as many have requested.
Here’s a selection of MagicForce and you can narrow the search down by Ctrl/Cmd+F and searching “Gateron, Cherry, Outemu” depending on the switch brand you prefer, or adding the switch brand to Search. Just be careful with where it’s shipping from. Sometimes Amazon lists items that are being sold from halfway across the world that ships by sea.
The Gateron Brown I specifically bought is here.
Well you’re extremely broad over what you want. First of all you need to determine what switch you want. Do you want something clicky or quiet? Do you want a bump or have a smooth key switch? Are you on a budget?
But from what you have given, there are a TON of choices you can choose. If you’re on a budget and want a 65% mechanical keyboard, then go with the Magicforce 68. There are also options of gateron blue or red I believe. If you are looking for a white tenkeyless and want some keycaps that will last for a while, try the Ducky One with PBT keycaps. If you try to find the same board with Dye-Sub PBT keycaps (High quality, ABS keycaps will shine overtime) except with different switches, just browse around the website. Another tenkeyless option is the Gans GS-87, which is honestly a steal for the price with Blue LEDS. There are also many assorted Chinese mechanical keyboards that are out there for pretty cheap compared to these boards on Amazon that are white.
You also didn’t seem to mention anything about a 60% layout. It’s usually up to personal preference but there are some white boards that look pretty sweet. Pok3r is definitely a reliable company with great products and a great board to start adding things like custom keycaps and artisan keycaps. Recently, the Anne Pro is booming with it’s low price point and pretty decent quality.
I can’t help you any further unless you give me more details. I hope this helps!
Right now on Amazon there are a few MagicForce Keyboards out there right now for like $63 USD. Looks like the right board for you! If you’re looking for a black board instead of a white one, then here is another link! If you are looking for a TKL/60% I would go for that. If you want a full size I’m not entirely sure, but I have heard of some floating around. Maybe not around your budget though.
EDIT: I found the full size board that has Gateron Brown! It’s a fullsize with red LED. Plus you can change it to whatever switch you want if you’re starting to dislike browns.
Very welcome. Just a heads up the cheaper options have some knock-off switches. They may be fine but I haven’t personally used them so check out some reviews.
Can’t go wrong with Gateron’s though.

Magicforce 68 with Gateron Browns.
The white keys are what it comes with. I replaced the modifiers with this blue set from aliexpress.
If you want something to carry around, you might as consider smaller than than TKL, and go with something like this
