Fantastic Mini Keyboard
It's going to take some time getting used to the Fn keys for numbers and punctuation, but when you need a keyboard to fit into a tight space (beside my Racing Wheel or Flight Stick) then the sacrifice is well worth it. Most "typing" isn't slowed down too much but entering passwords with lots of numbers and letters can be a bit tedious. Some people might not like the split Spacebar/Shift but after playing DOOM Eternal with that setup all year I can't imagine going back to just a spacebar. With this keyboard I can operate both dash and jump with my thumb and it's very intuitive. Having the option for the very lightweight Gateron Clear means even though DOOM is a very taxing game, my hands don't get too fatigued.

it's a keyboard i completely depise
too small the enter is the perfect place to annoy you unless you familiarize yourself with the layout. honestly this is what happens when you make a keyboard too small with a not very well thought-out layout and no support for custom layouts. i wouldn't recommend this keyboard to anybody personally. it's just not the best, and for the price i wouldn't ever consider buying it again.

Nice compact on the go board
Wanted to try this board out, and save even more space on my desk at work..since I only have a literal square of space to work in. Overall great keyboard for the price and compactness....but for me (a developer) it is too time consuming to learn all the shortcuts to get to keys like (< > " " : ; = ). This keyboard is better for an on the go solution for general typing, not programming/writing code. Mind you, with time and patience it could still work out for that, but I don't think right now is optimal. Love the different back-lighting features Love the Gateron red, I think they feel much better than the brown when typing. Love the compactness Love that it comes in black vs white, looks sleek with the back-light in black. Also like that the keys on this board don't really bottom out or sound as loud as the keys on my 68 from this brand. Not sure if it is just because of the different switch or construction of the case, but this version seems more solid in design.

I ordered the Magicforce 49-Key Mechanical Keyboard built with Gateron White Switches and icy blue LEDs. The keyboard feels very solid, although having a plastic body. The layout may appear strange, but it can be picked up very easily.

good value for an entry level 40%
This is my first 40% keeb so I don't have much to compare but I found it to be easy to transport and great for informal typing. I used karbiner to remap the right shift to a space on my mac and it has been 100% easier to use ever since. while I will stick to my TKL for any serious typing or coding tasks this little keeb is actually really handy for travel and working outside the house. The lights are nice but clearly meant for gaming not working, I only use the standard "all on" mode and it works just fine. the keycaps are easy to read and clearly printed, they feel nicer then I was expecting tbh. The construction is pretty good quality for a plastic keeb and again is sorta beyond what I was expecting for such cheap board. For the price I have no regrets. Also I typed this review using the magicforce keeb itself.

It's a nice little keyboard when you're on the road or in a tight server room. I wouldn't want to write books with this thing, still it does its job quite well. Almost always use the left Shift key, so this part of the layout wasn't a big deal for me. Quality overall is good, I bet there won't be too many keycap sets if you want to change them. Programmability would have been really nice, for the little typing I use it for it was not a deal breaker for me.

Non-programmability makes this keyboard a disappointment
On the surface this looks like a nice 40%, the quality is not too bad for this price point. But as others have pointed out the key layout is awkward and the fact that it is not programmable makes this keyboard unusable for me. Which is a shame really, add programmability, especially for the split space/shift bar, which I would prefer reversed, and you have a winner.

Terrible layout and nonprogrammable means it's not useful at all
This is actually a good looking and feeling board, and it's cheap enough that you, like me, might be tempted to pick it up as an impulse buy. Unfortunately, the key layout is ATROCIOUSLY AWFUL (e.g. the right side of the split spacebar, where a touch typist will try to press Space with their right thumb, is actually Right Shift), and the board isn't programmable at all so you can't change it. You can try remapping the keys at the OS level, but of course you can't remap the keyboard's own functions, and for Mac users the Fn key is where the Command key should be. In the end the layout issue is so bad I'll probably never get any use out of this board.

I was OK with the overall functionally/build quality of this KB, but in the end I just couldn't get use to it (no num pad as I use it quite a bit). It's more of a novelty KB if anything IMO. Your usage maybe different than mine as it was an impulse buy for me anyways. If it was RGB maybe I could of used it but I ended up selling it.

It is Not BAD but Not Best. it's good idea for that cut out number line. BUT, BUT result is Not best. because of fn set is too small and not effective. must it be 2 Set of FN keys. 1st Set is for Function keys like F1~F12 and prtsc etc. 2nd Set is for Number keys like 1~0 and etc. and agree to  below bren-square's comment to this board is that it's not programmable.
