    Hi,

    I was wondering people's thoughts on the Wooting One?

    Pretty unique idea having an analogue keyboard, but does is it supported by many games?

    Also, what's the build quality/switches like?

    I can only see it adding delay for gaming, instead of quickly changing inputs.

    Ah, a shame it doesn't really add to the gaming experience. I'll stick with other options then.

    Yes I have and the key height and spacing is really awkward for my hands - but for the record I have been using a noppoo choc mini for years which is quite diminuitive in comparison.

    On the flipside the key action is beautiful with their red switches.

    I'd be interested if they made a compact version.

    Just wanted to update this as I've decided to give it another go, this time with a wrist rest to raise my wrist height and suddenly it's a totally different experience. No longer feeling the sharp edge of the spacebar, and altogether much more comfortable to use.

    While some keyboards I've felt comfortable without a wrist rest, the Wooting One is one where I can't use it comfortably without. :)
