Vortex Pok3r Giveaway sponsored by Massdrop

Personally, I prefer a full-size keyboard out of habit. While I rarely use a numpad or arrow keys, it's good to have them for when you do need them.

Thanks, Massdrop and LMG.

 

For real work applications, anything less than a full keyboard significantly hinders and sometimes completely halts the time it takes to complete tasks.  For me, modifier key layouts make a big difference as I am accustomed to not looking at the keys as I type and use shortcuts.

i prefer a full keyboard. since i'm left handed, the number pad doesnt bother me and i can have my left hand on my mouse and my right hand on the number pad and arrow key. yes, doing simply hot keys like crtl + v and etc is a pain.

I've always liked the 60%, nice and small (just like me Ladies  ;)... that's not what i meant  :angry:) not to mention its perfect within a small confined space :lol:

I like full-size keyboards if only because it's difficult to find a separate numpad module that matches the style of the keyboard.

I really love my Corsair K65 compact keyboard. It leaves just enough room for my G502 mouse and my G240 mouse pad.

Certainly the keyboard size that looks the coolest to me is the 60% size. I currently have a full size (104 key) das keyboard that I love, but it would be nice to keep my arms much closer together when gaming.

I love TKL keyboards as i have a small desk with three monitors and 4 bookshelf speakers on it so i need as much space as possible

Ive never used anything but a full sized keyboard however i think a ten key less keyboard would be just as good for my needs considering i never use those keys anyway. Using a keyboard that requires you to hit the fn key might feel a bit weird to me considering how often i use em in mmos but if the fn key is bindable to a mouse button it might actually make things easier than having to reach out to those F keys.

My favourite size is by far 60%, "unfortunately" I have the Ducky Zero Shine which while a lovely keyboard is significantly bulky and I prefer to have a clear, uncluttered desk. Coupled with how I don't use the 10-key part of a keyboard, I have been tempted for a while to switch keyboards to a 60%, and mass drop hasn't been helping with that temptation :P

I've always used full-size keyboards, right now I have a cheap slim keyboard that has been working fine, but I've always wanted to try a mechanical one as I play a lot if games. Sometimes the number pad just gets in the way, but I couldn't really live without it, it's much easier to type numbers on it and the added enter key comes handy in some situations, oh, and it has arrow keys. :D

I am personally a fan of the large keyboards, as I have a very large amount of desk space. However, the addition of a smaller keyboard would allow m e to not have to put up with that annoying apple keyboard on my Mac, which is next to my gaming PC. It would also be nice and portable =D

I prefer a full sized for playing games or using big programs as I can map the extra set of keys to something. I do really like the TKL though for things like typing and the sort, feels a bit more comfortable since I don't use the keypad in that situation.

 

(and thanks guys :P)

I have just recently started to love mechanical keyboards. I have bought 4 in the last 2 months. I have a cooler master TKL with cherry red, a posedon Z with blue kailh, an AZIO MGK2  with blue kailh, and my newest one is a ducky3 with cherry green. I love the feel and sound of these keyboards and would love to add a new one to my collection. This one looks amazing. Nice and small and I have this feeling of I have to have it. If I had the money, I would have one of all colour switches and all types. Full, TKL, and this size. Feel like an addict now :)

80% keyboards are my favorite because it is small while still retaining the utility of the function keys. I don't use the number pad to justify a full size keyboard, and I can't live without function keys, so 80% keyboards strike a nice balance.

I prefer a full 104 key layout (the numpad is quite useful & it just spreads everything out). Although if I had less space & my desk was cramped I'd switch to a TKL in a heartbeat.

My favorite keyboard size is full, it lets me have access to all keys 24/7 without multiple functuons on one key for productivity. But keyboards like the Ducky Mini and the Pok3r are still good options when considering their lower profile for more of a traveling standpoint, witch can quickly improve cheap laptop key switches for mechanical without being bigger than the whole laptop or making the laptop a couple inches thick.

I actually like small laptop size keyboards. I don't really find a need for extra keypads and stuff but I do program in a lot of hot keys for easy access to other things. Basically the smaller the better because I have a tiny desk.

Sadly I wouldn't know because I have only ever user a 104 keyboard, and I am not currently in a financial state to purchase another, better layout. Would love to try one!

I generally use full size keyboards, but I really like how Cooler Master did their CM Storm TK keyboard. I thought that was a brilliant idea. Although my buddy did lend me a 60% keyboard for a LAN party one time and it wasn't too bad at all.

Sup everyone

 

I always prefer fullsize 104-key boards. I consider the number pad essential for comfortable use of a computer, and separate arrows and special keys are basically a must on any desktop machine I get to work on for more than 30 minutes. Curiously enough, I find the Application key quite useful sometimes, and I really appreciate it when a keyboard maker puts shortcuts to the calculator and command line as function keys on their board, while not making the entire thing cluttered with buttons for shit like e-mail clients and favorites (seriously, it's 2015...).

I prefer full size keyboards, as they provide more versatility utilising the number pad. Also in my opinion, the full sized keyboards is much more cometically appealing than the shortened ones.
