Great keyboard with trackpoint

This is my second Shinobi from this retailer. I find the trackpoint on this keyboard to be very accurate and an asset to this keyboard. Once you master it it, you never have to take your hands off the keyboard. It make mouse and typing work seamless and much more efficient.

Tex Shinobi Review

This is it! This is finally a solid mechanical keyboard with a touch stick. The layout is almost the same as the one on a modern Thinkpab X1, same size too (11' across). Having keyboard switches for mouse buttons works better than I was expecting. The long travel trips me off a little bit, but that can be fixed with o-rings. The trackpoint stick feels excellent, actually better then on my X1 Gen 7. It's very responsive and easy to control. The default mapping needs some tuning, like the middle mouse button not pasting by default, but that is really easy to solve with the companion website that allows you to customize everything about the keymap. The keyboard becomes a USB drive in programming mode. You just upload the keymap file there and you're done! If you are a fan of Thinkpad keyboards, you will love the Tex Shinobi.

Tex Shinobi Review

Bought this direct from Tex when it came out, brought my own switches, first kb project I soldered together myself. Almost 2 years as daily driver, really love it. Lettering on WASD keys started to show wear sooner than expected. Heavy, great packaging, great build quality, Only con on aesthetics is the keycaps-- they're bespoke bc of the trackpoint, but would love PBT and a better match to the OG thinkpad font.

Tex Shinobi Review

A great keyboard that fits in your lap WITH seven rows of keys AND a Trackpoint! You can also buy it with MX Clear switches, which I appreciate a lot.

Tex Shinobi Review

My config: Cherry Red Switches, no BLE module. My 1st keyboard came defective - when plugged into my computer, it would intermittently hard freeze and not register any key presses until I hard rebooted the computer, even though other external keyboards I plugged in did not exhibit this issue. Believe me I tried everything, from trying different operating systems, different USB-C cables, different USB ports, and so forth. Like Nicholas Taylor mentioned, the stock keycaps get worn really quickly and the white lettering especially gets dirty fast. On a whim, I put double-shot Cherry PBT keycaps on, and the board felt a lot better. The stock stabilizers on the spacebar also could use some work. Problems such as the ones I mentioned above are a bit unfortunate considering the high price tag ($185 USD). I'm also an international buyer, so I got dinged by FedEx with their import fee crap. I had to return my 1st board and re-buy it too, so I had to pay the fee twice. Nonetheless, having the classic 7-row layout and being able to use the trackpoint on a mechanical keyboard is just exceptional, and considering the exorbitant prices of the SK-8855 on eBay nowadays, this Tex Shinobi is comparatively acceptable value for money. Overall this is not a perfect board, but its target niche will nonetheless appreciate this board's existence and probably be satisfied by what this keyboard offers.
