Kailh makes lots of switches, they do in fact make Chinese knock-offs for cherry switches which look the same.  These switches (the low profile) are basically knock-offs of the Cherry ML switches 

This is what the kailh low profiles look like:

Keep in mind that no one seems to use the Cherry ML switches anymore so it's not like there's a huge amount of options available.  I tend to not have the same hangups on the Chinese knock-offs that some people do, I expect that these will be decent but not great.  I've also heard you need to lube these keys periodically so they don't stick when you bottom out with them.  Also be aware that keycaps that fit these are much harder to find than standard cherry keycaps (I doubt you care).  Funny enough, I would actually feel more comfortable putting these in a custom board than buying something like the sharkoon keyboard you linked.

Looks nice enough to me, I particularly like the 3 side button layout, I think much beyond 3 and you end up with an "mmo-mouse" but I can certainly see the appeal of an extra side button. 
Looks like it can be used while it's plugged in as well, which is a very nice feature that I appreciate on my g900. 

I'm glad to see some healthy competition, I have some respect for steel series products.

I had a chance to put my hand on a Asus ROG Gladius II mouse the other day. Usually find ambi shapes more comfortable but I was very surprised by how good this felt especially on the right side. It would be a downgrade over what I have now so there is no risk in me getting the upgrade itch but when the time comes for me to shop for a new mouse I will probably give some non-ambi models a real chance.

I can't tell what the difference is between this version of the m65 and previous versions.  A new sensor? Slightly different dpi button layout?  Everything else looks the same.

New sensor.  PMW3391 (new) vs PMW3360 (old). Also after removing all the weight, the new one can get lighter.

product page - https://www.pcgamingrace.com/products/reservation-glorious-model-o-matte-black

  • 68g weight
  • 3360 sensor
  • wired
  • ambi shape
  • 2 left side-buttons
  • software is apparently only optional
  • $60

This is the latest hypebeast in mice (inb4 vaporware). I have not tried any of these sub-100g mice but people are kinda crazy about them right now. I would be interested but I don't really have any major issues with my mouse right now so it would probably just be wasted money.

Needs more speed holes.

I understand the current trend is to make things as light as possible, but I dislike the skeletonized look that most of these mice are using to achieve that.  I'm curious what the quality is like from some of the PCMR mice and keyboards, I do have some wrist rests from them but nothing electronic.

Microsoft already re-released the intellimouse but now they are bringing a "PRO" model with an up-to-date gaming sensor and a different paint job. Some people will be very happy about this. MS is using the 3389 sensor which is equivalent to the 3360 which is used in a lot of gaming mice now.

Cooler Master MM710

  • 52g weight
  • 3389 sensor
  • wired
  • ambi shape
  • kinda small
  • 2 left side-buttons

This was already announced back at Computex but I think Cooler Master is the first of the really big companies that is doing the ultralight-with-holes style.

You have the gpro don't you? That is only 80g. If the size and shape work for you then I'm sorry to tell you but there is nothing better out there right now (in terms of both weight and performance). There have been some modded G305 that are a tiny bit lighter but I don't think people are expecting wireless to get much lighter.
