I have a Logitech G-something mechanical with red backlighting that has adjustable brightness. Hate the backlighting and wish it were one color (white, green or blue) and I didn't have to set the brightness on every boot. Good keyboard feel though and was reasonably priced - like $75 US or something.

I really like my Ducky with the MX red switches and no backlighting.

Both must be a matter of personal preference. I like how the MX red switches offer very little resistance. They are fast but not suitable for resting one's fingers on.

Very true! I like the exact opposite and fondly remember my old IBM Model M from over 30 years ago. You can still get that design in the USA:
Buckling-spring keyboards

It is cool that buckling-spring keyboards are still made, but I don't think many offices or homes would tolerate a computer keyboard designed to sound like a typewriter.

Recently I tried a SteelSeries mechanical keyboard that actually feels more solid than my ancient and revered IBM PS/2 mechanical keyboard. It looks like that one may remember how it is set in Windows even in Linux. It could be love at first click.
That's one of the things that you can do with this keyboard! No kidding. It can be monochromatic if you want and there is a dedicated brightness button too. There's a ridiculous amount of RGB functionality that is built into the hardware of the keyboard. No software required. like I said I just bougth my second one for my office.
