. Nordic layout, of course. Although it does says "alt" on the "alt gr"-button and some of the symbols are repeated (for compatibility with multiple languages), it is overall more correct than my old Razer. The Razer simply lacked some of the symbols where the Quickfire TK compensates with repeat symbols. It is an improvement in my opinion biggrin.gif



The keyboard is quite nice. I LOVE the size of it. The layout will take me a while to get used to. I frequently use "home", "end" and "delete" and the new layout confuses me right now. The sound is nice. It has a nice crisp sound. My old keyboard is a rubber dome and the creaking makes it very obvious that I've used the WASD-area a lot. The Quickfire TK however has a very loud, but solid sound to it.


I took a picture of my keyboards lying next to each other. I know that it is difficult to see, but if you look closely, you may notice the Quickfire TK in the bottom left corner wink.gif

Quite a switch in direction, but to be fair I've had the Razer for 4 years and it was my first "proper" keyboard. I now have a lot more experience on which to base my purchase and the Razer is overkill. All kinds of features that I don't need or even want in a box so big that it prevents me from sitting comfortably while gaming.

I like the backlighting on the Quickfire TK although it was not a priority. I was originally looking at a WASD keyboard, but they are too expensive if you have to ship them over the pond. Now I'm just wondering if I should get o-rings to quiet down the keys a bit. I have some rubber o-rings for dental braces that I've played around with and they actually work, but the diameter is too big so they are loose around the stems of the keycaps.
My biggest problem is that if I am to buy o-rings from WASD keyboards and they are $15 or more, I have to pay 200% the price of the rings to import them. This means that I can only buy the 50A rings with the 0.4 mm reduction in travel. Are those a good buy? I would prefer not messing too much with the key travel.
The 50A-R's will def. make you're key's feel firmer at first, once you work them in they'll feel real nice. I have them and it made my MX Reds actually feel better. MX reds are too light for me, so adding the 50A-R's made it slightly enjoyable.

A good day for me!

Dolch PAC 62 and a depth black cherry mx CC.

Man...vintage cherry mx blues feel way better than modern cherry mx blues! They don't even feel like the same switch.

Holy hell that is amazing! That is the coolest keyboard I have ever seen. Not really portable but back then it was probably like the ultrabooks of today. thumb.gif
