This is my first mechanical keyboard. I was looking for an *affordable* 96% board with wireless capability, and most importantly, one that came fully assembled and sounding great out of the box. I found a few options and eventually decided to try the TH98. I'm very happy with the board. It sounded almost great the way it came - the switches desperately need a lube job, but after the lubing, it sounds great! I also really love the keycaps.
I'm in North America and it only took seven days from the day I placed the order for the board to be delivered to me.
Even though I was looking for something requiring minimal modding, I was also able to take apart the board quite easily (though at first, I didn't realize there were screws under the feet so I almost messed up the case). I added some thicker foam to the bottom case, though I don't think it really made a difference to be honest. Also, I had no issues with the software and it worked right away, but I only wish it allowed me to edit layers, or at least the FN+key combos.
