I think that is a fair statement. It is easier to have less devices, but I also think that for people that find two devices to be not enough/not as comfortable, Orbweaver type devices can be used as a replacement or addition.

Hmm - maybe it would stop "wear and tear on my good keyboard"???

My golly - I think I just justified. rolleyes.gifbiggrin.gif:

edit:
Do like the looks of thje orbweaver - apart from the green LED.
And they list it as $200 on their store, when it retails for $119 here.
At $100 it won't qualify for free postage.
No bargain to be had here - saves me $100 pp. tongue.gif

Well I can't afford or justify buying any more keyboards. I'm trying to consolidate as it is. tongue.gif

If I get a new mech keyboard it will be specifically to build a "Fight board" out of it.

I play Fighting games with the keyboard

IJKL on my right hand as my Updown left right, QWEASD SPACE RF as my functional keys for my left hand. It's a lefty flip layout that works really great with my hands.

I need an MX blue or clicky tactile TKL board that's cheap like 80$ or less so I can tear all the keycaps off of it and make a cover over all the switches except for the keys I need for my fighting games.
With Dead or Alive 5 coming to PC and Street Fighter 5 on PC, I'll be getting back into fighting games and would really like a dedicated figthing keyboard.

If I wanted to, I'd have said that. tongue.gif

No i don't want a stick I want a right handed WASD key mirrow(IJKL) 4 independant switch "DPAD", and left hand moves (controller ABXY+LR+modifiers) keys.

Here's my MX blue keyboard with some keys removed to show this.

Does it have to be Cherry? You could get a cheap clone like Kailh for under $60. I also have a full size keyboard with White Alps if you were interested.

Prefer Cherry, but MX keys Tactile Clicky. Razer Green/MX Blue. Needs to be tactile clicky, but for now im spending the money on the game's first. And some medical stuff.

Okay, well Blue Kailhs are clicky and MX compatible. You might consider those if you don't find Razer Greens or Cherry Blues (though I don't personally like Kailhs).

I'll let you guys know how the blue kailhs are once my new kb comes in. My friend has a QFR with Cherry blues that we can test side by side w/. What I've heard is they're a little lighter, and the QC isn't as good as in Germany, so some switches could be lighter or heavier than others.
