Vortex Pok3r Giveaway sponsored by Massdrop

Recommended Posts

I definitely prefer a full keyboard, I have a very large desk to fit 3 monitors, and it feels empty with a small keyboard. Also, I find it much easier to use the numberpad than the row of numbers up top.

I use Excel on an almost daily basis. I have plenty of room on my desk. It doesn't make much sense to not have a 10 key on my keyboard for my primary PC.

I"m sorta halfway. I like keeping my mouse close when gaming w/ a 60%/10-keyless, but the 104+ key form factor keyboards have started to grow on me. Especially hitting the numpad enter key w/ my mouse hand!

I have always loved fullsized keyboards for work, but I have since switched to tenkeyless. 60% does look intriguing to try though.

I Would like a keyboard because I am using a keyboard that came stock with my computer. I don't the money to afford a keyboard that is that expensive when I am using a 2009 Toshiba laptop. it's got 4 GB of ram and a 2.0 GHz processor. but i am glad I have it. without it I would not be able to watch your amazing videos. It inspires me to go save up and get a computer like that someday. I also watch gmm aswell.

 

i would like any mechanical keyboard it would make my day.

For my primary computer, I will always have a full-sized keyboard. A majority of my productivity is done with numbers, and typing with a number pad is much easier (for me, at least) than using the number row at the top of the keyboard. Aside from that, I could easily get into a tenkeyless or a 60% keyboard, especially if I were using it for an HTPC.

My favorite form factor keyboard are tenkeyless mechanical keyboards. I currently have a full size Razer BlackWidow, and I find that I never use the numpad, and that it's just a waste of space sitting there. 60% keyboard's are also badass because of their portability, as well as the fact that they take up almost no space on your desk. I've never actually owned one though.

I personally prefer a full size mechanical keyboard. I have a Razer Blackwidow Chroma and I can't live without using the number pad as opposed to the 1 through 0 at the top. I also love the availability of the extra keys on the right side of the board that I can reprogram to whatever I like since I wouldn't use them anyways (Home, End, Page Up and Down, etc).

I like the look of a full-sized keyboard, but I don't think I use the number pad at all.  I don't think i'l l be buying another keyboard for a while, but when I do need to buy a new one I'll definitely check out some 60% ones

I enjoy the full 104-key keyboards. While having the extra space and travel capabilities would be nice sometimes (especially when visiting a friend's house), it's also still nice to feel like nothing is holding you back from being as efficient as possible. I've never used a 60% keyboard before and would be interested in trying one out! Thank you for the giveaway guys as always!

Full size keyboards are the way to go because they have more functionality, from the extra keys like volume and short-cut buttons to the numpad. Different keyboards and their sizes vary with their own advantages and disadvantages but my go to is a 104 keyboard.  :)

I really like the 60% keyboards. I never use my f keys. And rarely use my number pad on the side. Also I'm a fairly minimalistic person when it comes to item space. This would be a fantastic keyboard to use.

Honestly I really can't tell since I haven't really owned a lot of keyboards, but I guess I could live without the number pad on the right of me.

Thanks Massdrop for doing this giveaway!

 

I can't say that I have a preference on keyboard size as I've only had experience with full size keyboards at schools and library and the keyboard on my laptop that doesn't include a number pad.

However I want to have a go at smaller form factors like tenkeyless and 60% keyboards. Something like the CM Storm quickfire tkl series looks like it strikes a nice balance between a smaller size and functionality.

I prefer smaller configurations for gaming, (narrower shoulders), but I still use a tenkey...  So, tenkeyless with a tenkey on the left.

 

Though I'm definitely curious how a 60% would feel on the desk.

      i personally like smaller keyboards. i find having my mouse right beside a smaller keyboard  there's less of a gap between the two and moving from one to another is more  effecient. i guess it would be easier to carry too but i dont have like ANY pc gamer friends to play wit  :( . ahh only if i had friends.
