How practical is this for gaming?
I have and use it for that. It works fine, though if you want/use the 'Home', Insert, End, PgUp Pg down or arrow key buttons, you lose some of the ease you would have with an 80% or 100% board. I'm considering going back to an 80% so I can have those keys back, but I really like it otherwise, so I may just stick with it....not sure.
very, but it depends how many extra keys you are looking for. the basics are these and more
Very practical, in fact I prefer it to all my keyboards. Unless you need specific macro keys, I love it for FPS. I can tilt it so it's comfortable and gives me so much room for my enormous mousepad.
It's just as good as any other keyboard EXCEPT for one detail. The ` key is replaced by ESC. I've hit ESC multiple times while trying to hit 1 in various games. You can re-map that key on one of the layers of course, but it's a gotcha if you haven't run into it before. Other than that, it's great for gaming in general because of the space saving you can get from it.
Edit - I should mention the ESC/tilde issue is across most 60% keyboards or rather, any keyboard without the F-key row. So no biggie, just a heads up.
