Introduction


WASD Keyboards is a USA based brand that specializes in customization of keyboards and keycap sets alike, in particular their WASD V.2 with full color customization and even keycap sets, allowing a user to upload a custom design that gets integrated into the whole keyboard. But there is another product they manufacture and sell, and that is the CODE. It is today's review subject, and thanks must be given to WASD for providing the review sample.


The CODE keyboard is a collaboration between WASD and Jeff Atwood, aka Coding Horror. For the sake of the review and giving the brand its due recognition, I will refer to it as the WASD CODE here and henceforth. Targeted at typists or simply those who type a lot, the CODE too offers customization. However, unlike the WASD V.2, the customization here is in the form of typing layouts. I have covered the inherent issues of the QWERTY layout before, and how Dvorak and Colemak are much more efficient, and the CODE caters to these and more with the simple use of dipswitches on the back. Let us find out more by beginning with a look at the specifications below.
