I mean this thing is definitely cheap, but it's also not programmable. I think for the novice user it should be fine since the default layout is pretty good. Even though the vortex core cost $65 more, you do get some sort of programmability, nice dsa keycaps, and a nice metal case. I would honestly go with the vortex core over the magicforce 49, albeit the magicforce does have a better default layout.

How do you misspell "Magicforce" twice in the same sentence? I think you need a new keyboard :D

I'm in college and use a laptop because its way more convenient than a desktop currently. I play Overwatch and don't use a lot of keys such as the function row, alt, windows key, control that often. So this layout is perfect for me since I can game with it and satisfies my minimal key needs. Just happy with all the features I get with it for $60.

Yah it's not bad, although I wonder if it will ever be available on amazon, so I can get it sooner

With 40% keyboards, getting a cheap one to see if you can live with the layout is definitely the way to go. You need some time to get used to it, but, a lot of people just can't live with them at all; so you don't want to invest lots right off the bat. Just my 2c.
