Would this be suitable for gaming? Im relatively tech savvy so I would be able to reprogram/rebind the keys if necessary but it might be a pain. I'm looking for my first mechanical keyboard for gaming, but i don't want a full size one. I considered the Razor tartarus but it isn't mechanical, and I can't afford an Obaron (or whatever its called). I need keys that are accessible with my thumb, and enough keys to play games and run 2-3 macros. My mouse has 4 extra buttons, but they can't be bound to macros (don't ask why idk). Thanks, any advice or alternative options is appreciated :) Ps. I play on a windows (of course) but I have access to both OS X and Kali linux machines that I could use to reprogram keys.

The tartarus has more tactile bump than Cherry Clears or Gateron Browns, I love it.

I really don't want a bump, I would prefer a smooth click.

Are there other options? The Tartarus is pretty old.

I wouldnt suggest using this for gaming. The small form factor and lightweight construction could cause stability issues.

Yeah, i would need to be able to hit buttons with my pinky finger, so this won't work. Are there any other options anyone knows about?

I'd look into a 60% keyboard instead of a one hand solution. The KBParadise https://www.massdrop.com/buy/kbparadise-v60-mini-gateron is a nice cheap starting point.

I'm poor asf, so I'm really looking for something along the lines of 30-50 (or less but that seems unlikely). This is purely for gaming so it doesn't need to be full size to save $$ lol. Thanks for that suggestion though. I looked at the 49 key option on here but it isn't programable (from what I understand) and it looked like like positioning of the Alt. key would really through me off.

The Parblo one-handed keyboard is a pretty good option. But it's a bit more than your $50 limit.

I actually got mine off eBay for a bit less, so you might look there.

Search for a program called X-Mouse Button Control, it might be helpful for rebinding your mouse buttons.

I'll look into that, I've never heard of it.
