on the search for a good tenkeyless

more_vert
I'm real sick of my k65 and am even more sick of the rgb software and how they don't fix its problems so I'm a on the search for a good tenkeyless but don't know of any good ones, I wanted the atomic (I know its not tenkeyless) but they stopped making those... so does anyone have some good recommendations?

The V80 is a nice TKL board. I have the V80-MTS with Matias switches, but you can get it with cherry switches and backlighting (not RGB but they offer two-color LEDs).
Unfortunately, a lot of the best boards don't offer backlighting. I have a Leopold FC200, and the KUL ES-87 is nice as well.
CM Storms are cheap but also lower quality.

Actually look out for the Blackwidow X Chroma Tournament Edition. TKL, RGB, and metal. Plus the new in house Razer switches are awesome

who knows I might even just modify my k65 the biggest problem I have with it is that I cant disconnect the cable which is why I love massdrop because thats almost a golden standard and I bought the keyboard when I didnt care about having a cable like that im wondering if theres a way I can make it disconnectable hmm.

Ooo intresting now I have another thing on the projects list., actually I just remembered the keyboard has two cables I think it might need more power than one cable can provide.

I did the same thing with my quickfire tk. it comes with a detachable cable, but I did a bluetooth mod on it, and had to redo the plug bit so that it would charge the battery and transfer data.

my g. skill km780 has two cables as well, kind of bummed that they aren't removable. I have thought about doing the same thing and just have two removable cables. I don't use the usb pass-through much.

I have an MK Disco TKL, it's really nice if you don't mind the lack of software for RGB.

bought a leopold fc 660 and i love it, couldn't recommend it more. i wanted something smaller than a full size board so i immediately thought 10 keyless but after considering my needs i didn't need alot of the stuff you still keep with a 10 keyless except for arrows and delete. this made the leopold the perfect option. couple downsides however are no lightning and cherry stabilizers making the long keys feel a little less satisfying, other than that i'd say it's a perfect board. price is also quite reasonable for a cherry board i think i paid $110

I have 2 computers, and my desktop system has a DasKeyboard w/2 USB ports & cherry MX blue switches. I thought it was great.
Then I recently got a CODE TKL keyboard w/cherry MX clears here on Massdrop. Instant love! It's my favorite keyboard ever and the best typing experience of my life. After using it for 2-3 weeks, I find the Das to be less solid and fun to type on.
I know the keys (not double-shot) may eventually fade or wear, but if so, I'll just replace them.
It's really a wonderful keyboard...

I absolutely love my KUL ES-87. I see very very little of it on this site, but it's been an awesome keyboard and it's built like a tank.

KUL ES-87, Pok3r, and the WASD-brand keyboards, are the only ones I've found (in production) with DIP switches for QWERTY/Dvorak/Colemak.

That's a good point, but for ME the oldschool way to give folks opportunities when programmability had been hard to find at all.
Having allmost 2017 all makers of higher priced mks have to step up their game to give people full programmability stored inside the mk.
They could provide different layouts pre stored, or let the people do the work one time. Simple FN + xxx shifting to the desired layout without being in need to unplug the mk, dipswitches, replug.
Might take a few more years, but that's a needed evolution to stay competitive for me.

I like Ducky keyboards as well. For a considerably less expensive alternative, look up Magicforce kybds on Amazon. There are 68 key and 84 key versions with different key switches available. I really kinda grown in love with the floating key design. Very easy to clean a keyboard, tap keyboard on edge of your desk, all the dust, dandruff and cookie crumbs just fall out.
