Vortex POK3R Black Case White LED Cherry MX Black Review

I am really enjoying this keyboard in the short time I have had it. Getting used to the function layers has a bit of a learning curve but the thing is a dream to type on. The only issue I have is psychological. I owned a different 60% many years ago (hhkb) and my brain is apparently still used tot hat layout even though I haven't touched one in years. I keep pressing '' when I mean to press backspace and capslock when I want to press control. But the overall benefits to my touch typing are still present. With fewer keys in a compact layout I have an easy time orienting myself if I lose my place. And I enjoy the reduced range of motion and efficiency of movement even certain basic actions require combinations. The big unknown for me is how I will incorporate the programability in my daily use. But it is pretty easy to do, and I don't think it will be tough to get used to. I am not quite sure why it is listed here as 6 key rollover, since I have had no problems getting it to register well over 10 keys simultaneously without failure or ghosting. The only (minor) negative was for me the lack of a paper manual. Considering the official instruction manual is only a couple of pages, it seems like an oversight to not include one in box. I would also have preferred if the caps lock led was not a different color from the rest of the keyboard.

I just bought my Pok3r back at October 28th 2017 (not even 2 months ago) from MechanicalKeyboards.com and the spacebar key is already starting to rub off. The quality control is poor. Now I have to buy another keyset as this imperfection is going to drive me nuts. Warning, you will need to buy more keycaps if you use your keyboard a lot (even when its only been less than 2 months). Great price but quality control is garbage.

Brilliant Keyboard. Metal base is sturdy and gives a fantastic typing experience as it allows you to really slam down on the keys with little to no flex at the bottom out. I've only used cherry blue switches before this so I was a bit hesitant to use the clears but I love them just as much! They are signifigantly heavier than blues but not enough for any type of fatigue to set in. I purchased this for work and the clears are just as satisfying to type on as the blue but don't disturb everyone around me. I would recommend this keyboard to anyone who likes 60 percent keyboards like myself. My only gripe about the keyboard is the fact that the default location of the arrow keys seems a bit strange.
