    At that price this could be interesting. I'd like to try one.

    I must be seeing the wrong image on my end, cuz I'm seeing the same standard sized Enter button used on 99.95% of keyboards produced today ..

    BTW, I know this is counter to the topic being discussed but does anyone know of any other "short" keyboards like these:

    Cooler Master Quickfire Rapid
    http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=3060

    Logitech K300 Compact keyboard
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002CWZ29S/?tag=tec06d-20

    I'm using the CM Quickfire Rapid and, while the size and layout are perfect, it's shall we say less than subtle due to using mechanical keys. The Logitech was ideal but with the non-removable wrist rest it was incredibly uncomfortable to use for long periods of time.

    Any ideas or should I start a different thread elsewhere on this topic?

    In the US, maybe, but here in our region, large main ENTER button is the default.

    So what makes this a "gaming" keyboard, exactly?

    Nope.

    Probably has Anti Ghosting.

    That's pretty much the only feature required to make it a gaming keyboad.



    Anywhom! I like it, price is reasonable and looks nice simple n slick.

    Why do you put watermark on images that you dont have copyright, or images that you can find on million other places?

    I guess it's so that if it gets hotlinked on another site, TPU at least gets some advertising out of having it's bandwidth leeched.
