I'll do a quick review of it for those wondering.
I bought this in the last drop back in January and I've been using it for a little while now.
I primarily type and use my numpad frequently for my job. I ordered Cherry Blacks because I wanted something more stout than my reds in my main board.
Quality: The casing seems of relatively cheap plastic. The clear plastic isn't necessarily the nicest material you could have used, and the top half of the casing isn't much better. It does feel of cheap, brittle plastic. However the amount of tilt you can get on this thing is absolutely awesome.
The LED's on the back are the only ones that are [adjustable] RGB. The LED's under the caps are set colors in a rainbow vertically, and color can't be adjusted, but their functions are plentiful and neat!
The stabilizers are what I have a problem with. Sandy as hell, and REALLY low quality-feeling. I'm sure if I lubed them it would get a little better, but I shouldn't have to lube a $35 numpad.
The switch mounting in the plate and the aluminum switch plate is pretty damn nice all of this being said.
The buttons on the top are pretty useless for anything other than setting the color functions of the LED's on the device itself. ESC works though. So that's kinda neat I guess?
Build Quality: 6/10 Could have used MUCH better case plastic.
Solidarity: 8/10 Feels quite solid when hammering away at it, and it doesn't move.
Feel: 6/10 This would be higher if the stabilizers weren't so damn trash.
Practicality: Typing: 8/10 Gaming: 6/10
Great for typing since I don't need those F1/2/3 keys, and it stands up super tall, which I love for ergonomics
But for gaming? It's more than likely going to feel awkward with the extra keys and I'd probably grab something that sat a little lower.
I bought this because I needed a numpad for my 88 key board at work, and this happened to be on Massdrop. I looked past the quality concerns of the case because it's not like I'm travelling with this thing. Overall? I'm pretty damn happy with it and I like it a lot minus the stabilizers. I would totally buy another for no more than $25.
I've looked at that but $83-$95 I'll take my $50
