What is a good tenkeyless keyboard?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So my friend is looking for a tenkeyless mechanical keyboard.

So far, I've recommended him Filco Tenkeyless keyboards found on Amazon and the Leopold ones found on EliteKeyboard.

I've tried looking into Noppoo and Ducky but their tenkeyless variations are almost impossible to find for purchase.

So far, it seems that the Filco is the best choice because of its great reputation and Amazon's lenient return policy.

Is anyone able to recommend any other good tenkeyless keyboards (that can be purchased from within the United States)?

Note: He's not willing to go for less keys than a tenkeyless/87 key.

I can only commend the Filco Majestouch. I bought the TenKey version (can't understand how anyone copes without a numpad!). The build quality is brilliant and the feel is so, so much nicer than my old BlackWidow. Also, I got some cool WASD and ESC red keycaps biggrin.gif

I can cope without a numpad because I'm not an accountant.

Didn't realise you had to be an accountant biggrin.gif

I suppose I use Excel a whoooooooooole lot at work, so it's pretty nifty for that. But, still, it would drive me nuts tongue.gif

In terms of current produced stuff, the Filco is probably the safest bet. I used to have one a year or so back, was a great keyboard.

I like my numpad 'cause numpad 0 is my duck key, and numpad 1 is my run key. =(

Leopolds are nice for what is a cheaper version of a Filco, can be bought at elitekeyboards in the states. As long as your friend isn't a keyboard connoisseur the Cherry stabilizers won't bug him.

I don't think Noppoo has a tenkeyless variation of their keyboards. They have the Choc Mini which is a 84-key that can be found on eBay.

Other than the Filco or Leopold, there is the Plu ML-87 and the Ducky 1087 (which I don't know where to find myself, either). I'd recommend to just get either the Filco or Leopold.
