I'm not buying it for office work, these things are just too loud and there's no numpad.

Everyone else, enjoy.

The modern ergonomic recommendation is to minimize the lateral movement of the hand, hence TKL keyboards.
I mean, I'd buy this more than. It having enough desk space, but you're still doing the movement. Is the recommendation to minimize lateral movement all together or just reduce the distance?

If you're really looking to reduce lateral movement, probably should just get better with the tab key, or find a keyboard with a nub and illuminate the mouse all together.

I don't mind the loudness as I WFH. I miss the feel of the old IBM/Fujitsu kb's, and I hope this one is similar. I have a separate wireless numpad if I need it, but I've got used to not using it. My kb tray has small width, so a normal size kb won't be that convenient.

Reduce the distance the hand travels. Of course, if you use the same applications daily, it is better to learn keyboard short cuts and minimize the use of mouse.

For example, many computer programmers exclusively use the KB by developing custom KB macros as it is both faster and reduces of chance of developing RSI.

In a shared office, not WFH, this isn't really viable. Trust me from experience, the noise and lack of numpad are problems for many office users.

That said, this is a winning option for many RFDers, and people are giving OP too much grief.

Hey Coolwarm would you be able to reply with the keyboards you posted before? Cheap Bluetooth mechanical keyboards are rare and I'd like to set an alert on the ones you mentioned.

Thank you

Have you been on Reddit? Downvoting is even worse than on RFD. There downvotes are malicious but RFD is also plagued by the Reddit effect. Personally, I think only upvotes should be allowed, if any voting.

Is there any hack that makes this keyboard compatible with unify receiver ? Cause my NUC has a limited usb port and don't want to buy a usb hub.

The easy answer it to look for a different keyboard, and I absolutely do, I just do not understand the desire to remove a numpad. Lets not pretend this is some highend keyboard where the microsecond of a keystroke is going to count in some online FPS, cause it's not.



What do you think the percentage of people is that don't have enough space for a numbpad on their desk?
Well, in my house it's 100% lol

I don't understand why people can get so upset that choice exists in the world. I work at a bank, I know what a numpad is good for, and when I can go without. Buy yourself a nice keyboard with a numpad and let everyone else live their lives man.

Red switch vs. Blue switch. From previous Amazon reviews, they said "Black" without any suffix is blue switch.

Thanks for finding the deal OP! Got ourselves a white with red switches, use it until my epomaker kit comes! I'm assuming the switches are soldered on right?

Don't mean to sound like an idiot. But than how do you type numbers ? Keypad on a mouse ? You have to reach your hand over to the top row anyways.
