What's So Good About Tenkeyless - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Thread Starter 
Thanks guys for all your help. I'd get a Shine II TKL but those are pretty expensive. I'll just save up for the Leopold. And glad to hear that someone that plays FPS is saying that it improved his game. Maybe it will for mine too wink.gif

Definitely, the thing about tenkeyless is your mouse is closer to your body (less too the right) and I find I'm more precise, also you get more room to move your mouse so you can play on a lower dpi, it's kinda like using kotrolfreeks on a gamepad. One of the best gaming decisions I've ever made.

With TKL my left arm is closer to the body, I prefer that for gaming.

It's a bit cheaper also. Then again, if you're dishing out 100+$, you don't really care about it.

I'm on TKL right now and it's ok, no need to additional keys, I like it minimal.

There aren't enough TKL's with multimedia keys. The only ones I've seen are the CM TKL keyboards but they look ugly and I don't like the font on the keys. The Ducky Shine II are the only ones that I like with TKL and multimedia buttons.

What about the HPE 87?

Or KeyCool 87, Noppoo Choc Mid or Mid S, any of the various members of the Newmen GM-10 family of keyboards (includes versions by Zalman, Armaggeddon, Genius, ViewSonic, Shogun Bros...), Filco Camo, PLU ML-87, PLU/Team Scorpion Zero87, and many, many others that I can't be bothered to track down and list...

Really, there's no shortage of TKLs with media functions.

Tenkeyless is smaller thumb.gif

What I used to do is rearrange my desk before gaming. Tenkeyless has allowed me to keep one setup all the time. Also outside of games, I like that I can have my mouse-hand in a more natural position. I also just like the clean look of it, and the numpad goes almost unused on my home computer. I just need it at work.
