This is a great 40% keyboard. It is really well designed, and works quite a bit like other vortex poker keyboards, so if you are familiar with the programming on those, this will be very similar.

The great thing about this keyboard vs a planck is that it is much easier to program than creating a flashing a custom firmware to the keyboard. As mentioned in another review, the only real big downside that I've hit so far is that although there is a separated space bar, which is cool, they cannot be programmed separately, which is a shame.

Other than that, this is a great quality pre-built 40% keyboard.

This review was written on it, and I found nearly all the punctuation I was looking for :-)

The best 40% layout I've used. The key position have been very well thought out. Also, the manual is wrong when it comes to the symbol keys location. I've contacted Vortex and they told me that this is a mistake with the manual, not the keyboard malfunctioning. The programmability is a must have feature on a keyboard of this size.

This keyboard has excellent build quality. Baseplate exhibits no flex and the switches and PBT keys are top notch. However, either my keyboard's software is defective, or the user manual describing the default Fn1 shift layer is incorrect- all symbols (ie !@#$%^&*()_ ) are on row 2 from the top (not R1 as in the manual) and shift Fn1 b corresponds to ", n to ?, m to {, , to }, and . to |. Programming one of the spacebar keys will result programming the other with the same function, thus, for example, you cannot program the left spacebar to function as a backspace and the right spacebar as space (both spacebars will act as backspace). Caps can't seemed to be programmed to Fn either. Overall, the learning curve seems to be rather steep, particularly due to the keyboard's limitations.
