I recently started researching keyboards myself, so I just learned this term a couple weeks ago – TKL (Ten Keyless).
Thats a keyboard without the number pad so be sure and add that to your search.

I didn’t want a TKL keyboad and after watching many YouTube videos and reading many reviews I finally ended up with a Steelseries Apex 7.

I’m not a gamer but I got suckered in by the RGB lighting, volume wheel, comfortable magnetic wrist rest, etc., and ended up spending more than I had originally intended.

I’ve had this full size Apex 7 with brown switches since November 2020.

I just bought this Apex 3 TKL and hooked it up yesterday.

The Apex 7 is connected to my work laptop. I’m not a gamer so it’s used 100% for typing. I bought the Apex 3 for minimal use at my hobby workbench. I build model kits (Star Wars, Star Trek, a few model planes, etc.) and set up a spare PC at the bench for looking up reference material and watching how-to videos.

I really like the feel of the Apex 3 but its a bit early to say if I like the feel of one over the other, especially since I’ll be using them differently. The Apex 3 is definitely more quiet, and I’m not a fan of loud clicky keyboards so I’m pretty happy with the new one in that regard.

I can’t really answer your question yet but the keyboards are really so different that I’d say it depends on what your looking for and if a clicky mechanical keyboard would annoy you or those around you.
