Versions

There are several versions of this keyboard available.

  • Black
  • White
  • Black, LED Backlit

Keys

The Keys are laser engraved and made of POM. The color of the legends is golden for the basic layer, light-blue for the integrated numpad keys, red for the media control keys and green for the switch lock, which exchanges the function of the Capslock and Control keys. Interesting to note, the modifier and other keys do not use symbols but text to describe their function. The keyboard does not have extra LED's but windows with LED's in the key itself.

The spacebar also sports a Noppoo branding in form of the company logo and text.

Due to the filled laser engraving used, the keys are very susceptible to wearout. See pictures for references.

Rollover

This Keyboard features N-Key Rollover over USB. It achieves this by emulating a USB Hub and 3 separate USB Keyboards.

Compatibility

This keyboard works on:

The Noppoo doesn't work on Mac over USB because of some of the tricks it plays to get NKRO. However, the PS/2 layer works fine with Mac. Since standard Mac hardware doesn't have a PS/2 port, this means converting USB to PS/2 and then back to USB. See NKRO-over-USB issues for an illustration.
