    Hey guys,

    Does anyone have experience with this keyboard, the one with the removable number pad?

    Is it well built, solid and good quality?

    I've seen some say that the numpad wobbles or moves when typing on the keyboard, is that true?

    Anything else, good or bad to report?


    Thanks :)

    I got one at work that Asus gave me. It's solid enough. The numpad slots in place and stays put.

    My only gripes are that I'd like to see PBT keycaps at that price point and I'm really not a fan of the stabilisers but other than it being a pita to clean it's alright for the money.

    switches and caps aside, quality is what I would expect for a board at its price point

    I was going off msrp.
    For £99 its a good option.
    I'd go for some Pbt keycaps still as after a years use the stock ones on mine are shiny and look rubbish.

    Honestly I love it, I have the Cherry MX Blue version, It's solid, Built like a tank and the optional keypad is great, If you're in the market for one I can highly recommend it, Although personally I'd buy a replacement PBT keycap set.

    Do you have any issues with the keypad moving in anyway at all?

    I assume any Cherry MX compatible PBT keycaps will work?

    As long as you have the keyboard on a stable surface there should be zero movement from the numpad and as far as I know any standard layout PBT set will be fine :)

    Cherry mx red version here and the keyboard has held for normal typing usage over 2 years. No noticeable wobble in the numpad for me

    Solid keyboard built like a tank.
    Great lighting and no wobbly keys.I got the red silent version.
    Quieter than my cherry brown Das keyboard on my other pc
