me being picky, I don't like stock CM caps because the pad printing leaves the legends raised abocve the keys and you can feel them on your fingers. I'm happier with my lesser quality caps on one of my boards than the stock CM keycaps. working on ordering a custom set for my work keyboard ( qf-xt )

$30 would get you caps of equal quality, but you would be free to choose your keycap color and customize it a bit. (unless you go used then you might can score some better caps )
the QFR uses standard cherry mx sizes and spacing, so its very easy to find keycaps that will fit.

I understand if you're using it with a mobile rig, but if it's sitting on your desk, portability isn't exactly a priority. Price? Please. You just spent $60 on a keyboard and are in, for the most part, the same market as custom PC builders.

Ok gotcha. The printing is my only complaint, so I may go this route.

What is there to get? It's usually as simple as, "I don't use the numberpad, so why have one."

More room on the desk, don't use the numpad, ergo pointless.

No backlight, true, but you bought the higher quality board of the two. However if you're really regretting not having a backlight, just cancel the order and buy the TK. Unless wherever you bought it from has shipped it already, which would be some blazing fast service.

Yeah, I got it through distribution at work, it will be here tomorrow before noon. The disti warehouse is only 25 miles from our location. besides, they only had the TK in blues, and reds. No browns frown.gif

Lack of use, sure. I use it every day since my PC's password is a 4-digit number. I'm not trying to keep out hackers, just nosy people. But I find it invaluable for data entry or using a calculator. A line of numbers at the top is difficult to maneuver. They're numerically ordered, I know, but I have similar problems with virtual alphabetized keyboards - they're different. I'm used to a TI calculator for this sort of thing and cell phones to a lesser extent. I'll certainly use a TKL board for gaming purposes since that's, you know, for gaming, not general typing.

Is space really at so much of a premium that you need those five or six inches? Obviously mobility comes into play if you have a mobile LAN rig, and TKL boards are preferable for those purposes. But for a mostly immobile desktop keyboard? I can't see that being an issue.

Hey guys, did anyone see the current shell shocker deal? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823162026

$34 AR for a Tt mech.

Does anyone know if that huge wrist rest is removable?

I'm considering it if it is.
