Is $200 really so crazy?

I was shocked at the price of this but thank you for putting your field of work and describing how it's useful to you. You're right, there's a specific intended audience for this and if you can see the value then go ahead, and if you can't, then look at something else.

Does the switching between Mac and PC require both machines to be connected on the same network?michaelthebear wrote: ↑Apr 25th, 2019 1:26 amIs $200 really so crazy?
Apple ipad keyboard - $219 - no illumination, terrible typing
Apple bluetooth keyboard - $179 - no illumination, no jog wheel
Microsoft Surface keyboard + surface dial - $260 together - no illumination, no device switching
Corsair K70 SE - $239
Someone who is happy with their $20 wired keyboard, might equally be aghast at the corsair K70, but a serious gamer would find it a worthy investment.
Many reviewers calling the Craft a bad keyboard, or overpriced, are people not its intended audience. It's like a taxi driver using a pickup truck, and complaining it's bad for city fares.
The Craft is intended for people who use adobe creative apps, and almost no one else.
I own this keyboard. I use adobe premiere pro and photoshop extensively, and love it because:
- illuminated keys perfect for dim environments necessary for photo and video editing
- one of the quietest keystrokes ever, perfect for open offices with other quiet people
- easy switching between up to 3 devices (I go from PC to MAC often)
- super smooth scrubbing in premiere timeline independent of other tools.
- brush changes and other tool enhancements in photoshop
The Craft is a $120 keyboard without the jog dial. But that jog dial can add tremendous value for the right person. For me, scrubbing through the premiere timeline with the wheel, while using my mouse to adjust mask keyframes, has shaved HOURS off my work, especially after the recent update that completely bugged the auto track forward feature of premiere.
I have not tried the surface dial yet and after my amazing experience with the Craft, I'm curious to give it a try for comparison.

No, it's all via bluetooth.
