wrong layout again.
the backslash next to the right shift should be placed on the opposite side of the shift key, so that people who still use arrows have more keys available for the little finger (right ctrl, backslash, shift). the way its done the backslash is too far to be comfortably useful. but were getting closer! or back to the good layout.


the last good layout was from keytronic 15 years ago.

People who still use Arrow Keys need to stop living under a rock.

Incase they are left handed, i feel sorry for them.

Keys have the tendency to stay where they are as most people still have to type with their keyboard

having the backspace past the shift would make it quite impractical to a lot of people trying to type uppercase letters

The black key caps are nylon? I've never heard of nylon plastic in mechanical keyboards, abs and pbt yes.

I'm left handed, I use WASD, I have learnt to use the mouse with my right hand, I don't think I could even use it left handed now.

Nice keyboards but white is reallll fugly imo.

That is an Asian layout, they commonly use a big ass Enter key. Definitely not ISO (european) layout, i have this board and it comes in an UK ISO layout and also in ANSI layout.

The reasoning behind the nylon keycaps is the feel and weight. They feel absolutely amazing to type on. The board itself is a bit noisier than most MX Brown boards but under any regular rubber dome or clicky board, i reckon its the nylon caps that make it this way. It would be interesting to know the difference in ABS and nylon on this board.

Glossy white and anodized metal is the current fad in computing.

Nice to see I'm not alone. I can use a left handed mouse, but I'm so accustomed to the righty that I'm far more comfortable with it.

Of course, this could be why I'm so terrible at BF3.

Color and key layout preferences aside, it's nice to see someone other than Filco and Leopold make keyboards with PS/2 support.
