I really really like this keyboard layout, I've never really understood why we still have these keys between the main keys and the numpad, I certainly don't use them except print screen and sometimes arrowkeys.

I just ordered a trigger but man this looks better :S

I like that the windows key on the left is included, the fn key could have replace either the windows key on the right or the menu key that it has replaced on this keyboard.
For me while macro keys are nice, being able to remacro any key on the keyboard is better. Having a wrist rest and dedicated media keys would be awesome.

Basically if the trigger had blue backlighting and layout like this but with dedicated media keys, I think that would be my perfect keyboard thumb.gif

Carter said before that they were not happy with iOne with QuickFire Pro, so I hope they shift production to Costar this time biggrin.gif

I like this layout, gives you keypad + arrows in 80% size. But it will be a problem if I want to use Home/End while in the keypad mode, say working in Excel.

I really dig this keyboard layout and it's available with red, blue and brown cherry switches. I just hope with the numpad off you can use delete, end etc. keys without have to a press a button combination like the fn key. Other than that i hope it isn't too expensive and i am almost sold. I am looking at brown switches.

Pretty sure you'll pay a lot just for the blings. tongue.gif

Interesting layout indeed - but still it is no "cure" for me...i need the numpad, the arrow keys and the del key too often when working...darn CAD...
All tenkeyless iterations are incapable of satisfying that...

It could work if you want to keep cycling through Num-Lock.

It seems that the medium sized laptop keyboard layout works best for you as they tend to keep the num-pad along with just the directional keys. Not sure if there are any mechanical keyboards based on that design.



I'm pretty intrigued by this keyboard. I tend to use the num-pad a lot but have little to no use of the word processing cluster. The browns with white lighting would look quite nice as well. If it's priced the same as the Rapids then I'll most likely buy one.

Cycling the num-pad seems counterproductive.

It is true that 15.6-17.3" laptops with keypads work well for me, as do relatively small keybs in general. Right now I am using a $10 (thanks staples) Logitech K360, but other than size and unified nano receiver I don't really like it...

Thus I am tempted to go for a relatively compact mechanical, and I could use back-light, surely not a must...I actually would prefer a proper wrist-rest (not partial ala K60) much more than backlit.
Numpad / arrow keys are almost a must if I am to use it for anything but gaming/typing tho, and I do get myself busy on more than that.
