  • Pros:

    - It's ideal for my preferred configuration, which is a tenkeyless keyboard with an external numpad to the left and a very large mousepad to the right.

    - Software-independent RGB lighting is a must for my particular use case, which is why I like Ducky so much.

    - PBT keycaps feel great. I think I'll get a set for my keyboard.

    - There's a backspace key. Also, the long 0 key has been shortened and a 00 key has been added. This is actually quite useful. I find myself reaching for these keys on other numpads and being disappointed.

    - Just on its own, the look on people's faces when I pull out the Pocket to do calculations is worth the price.

    - The instruction manual is very easy to understand, which is good considering how many hotkey functions there are.

    Cons:

    - Ducky calls this the Pocket, but I'm not sure what kind of pockets they had in mind. It's much too bulky to be truly portable. Which is too bad, because I'd love to carry it around everywhere.

    - Configuring the LED colors isn't quite as easy as on Ducky's full-size keyboards.

    - The battery life is shorter than I'd like, and I wish it used something other than a CR2032 coin battery.

    - The backlight on the display is too bright. Maybe there's a way to turn it off, but I haven't found it. It stays on as long as its plugged in, even when my PC is off. I have to flip the switch on my power supply every night so I can sleep. Fortunately, the dimensions of the display are almost exactly the same as a stick of chewing gum, so I can cover it up. It would be nice if the display turned off when idle. Firmware update, maybe?

    - Despite what's shown in that promotional video, the Pocket is no good as a gaming keypad. At least, not in the way it's shown. The keys are arranged in four columns, and I think a decent gaming experience would need five. Players might find it very useful for macros and such, but it's no substitute for conventional WASD controls.

    The Ducky Pocket is not that good as a pocket calculator or a gaming keypad. It is, however, excellent for the more essential functions like productivity and making people say: "what the?"

  • Solutions found with this little amazing keyboard:
    - Responsive with tactile feedback that the key you pressed was actually taken in consideration for input/calculation. Different from normal cheap calculators with mushy keys that frequently fail on me;
    - Give me back an agile numeric keypad when using my notebook, that speed up my data entering, specially when typing numbers;
    - The backlighted keys, associated with the tactile "-" sign help me position my hand quickly to enter data without looking at the keypad all the time.
    - Video editing with vegas is much faster using the directional keys (PC2 mode)
    - Being able to disconnect the keypad and work independently as a calculator gives me freedom to perform basic calculations to record on paper when a computer is not available.

    Really loved this product.

  • Grabbed one to accompany my Ducky One TKL keyboard. I must say, this numpad is amazing! I really like the ability to use it as a calculator on the fly. Lighting is not super bright but bright enough for my tastes. Build quality is very nice, the outer case is made out of a very sturdy-feeling plastic that doesn't flex at all, and the PBT keycaps feel very nice.
    Overall, it is an excellent numpad. I highly recommend it.

  • This numpad is well priced for what it offers. The only problem I have encountered is that the display light is already malfunctioning after only one month of use. I don't think I'll be sending it in though since it seems like a hassle to ship to Taiwan for repairs.

    MK Edit - If this was purchased from us, please send it in to us for repair. Email us if you have any questions.

  • Love it!

    I was going to get a razer nostromo then I saw this and I'm glad I did. It's much cheaper, has more buttons. You just remap it and go, no silly ram stealing software. Build quality is fantastic. I dropped it HARD during unboxing and not a scratch. My gaming style is lap boarding in a big comfy chair so the small form factor puts my left hand in the perfect position in relation to the mouse which is good for my carpal tunnel issues. Two profiles and easy switching is a plus too. The lighting options are really nice and help me get my hand in place in the dark. It performs flawlessly in game. Not much other praise I can give, for what it is.

    A few petty cons:

    The setup of the keys and lighting is somewhat tedious if you are a software config fan (I'm not), programming it to my liking took quite a while and there are a few key typo's in the manual, which slowed it down even more. Calculator. I'll probably never use it, and it adds bulk to an otherwise perfect peripheral. Also I'm not a big fan of the red switches but the others are currently out of stock, I'll probably mod it. One other thing is the clear switch housings that make it a bit overly blingy for my tastes, lol light shining out all over. Black electrical tape should solve that.

  • Got this to tag along with my code tkl for programming duty. The functionality is excellent, from thw keystrokes, to the functions and macros. The build quality is excellent. My only gripes are that the legends on the keys lack contrast and the back lighting is quite dim next to my WASD CODE TKL. Overall, it's an excellent product.
