No compact boards with left side macro keys?!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
On a whimsy I thought, hey, it'd be pretty cool to add a Red switch driven board to my arsenal and in the true spirit of reds, I thought ... MACRO keys should be a must. Red is for all out gaming as far as I'm concerned, so it should be tenkeyless at least and not have any of the media or numerical add-ons that you'd want for more generalised use.

However, I simply cannot find such a configuration on the market. If you want macro keys you have to get all the bells, whistles and gimmicks that the gamer target audience are believed to demand. And I definitely do not want a large, fancy keyboard.

Have I missed any?!

Has some media functions (volume wheel), but otherwise seems to meet your requirements quite well...red switch, left side macro keys, TKL.

Hey thanks for the reply. Yeah that's what I mean! If I could choose I'd get a more solid design like filco or ducky ten keyless and no backlighting.

Monoprice isn't available in Australia. Surely this isn't the only board of its kind??

Looking, yeah. I can't find any (other than the monoprice). Probably just end up getting a Ducky Zero TKL and putting my own PBT caps on it and give up on the macro keys. I guess the thing is that I'm already using all the keys that my left hand can reach in a traditional touch typing position and just wanted a few more at my disposal, but it's not the end of the world.
