3.0 out of 5 stars Don't underestimate how important the numeric keypad is!, 16 May 2013
Clive Jones - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: UK Topre Realforce 88UB 45g Key Black on Black Mini Keyboard
I bought this, but after trying it briefly I returned it and got one with a numeric keypad instead.

The keyboard itself is lovely, as might be expected. I recommend it wholeheartedly. But I rapidly discovered three things:

1) My hand motions scale to the size of the keyboard. When I was headed for the cursor keys, I instinctively went a few inches in from the keyboard's right-hand side, with hilarious consequences (as they say) if there was no numeric keypad.

2) I often hit the numeric keypad's enter key with my thumb while mousing.

3) I enter numbers using the numeric keypad an order of magnitude more frequently than I thought I did.

I chose this model because of the UK keyboard layout. As a touch-typist I'm finding German keycaps a lot less of an issue than the lack of the numeric keypad. Definitely buy a Topre Realforce, but think twice before picking this one.
