Input Club managed to get lots of features into this keyboard. It's a great idea to build something with mass market appeal, that's ready right out of the box. But it still is built for easy customisation: standard keycaps and layout, high frame rate RBG, exchangeable switches and programmability. I...

I'd love for Leopold to make ISO versions of the 980C and 660C. Or maybe one of the Topre clones makers could build an ISO board.

I have bought from them twice without issue. The prices are in GBP so the exchange rate can be unfavourable if you order to a different currency.

I haven't used this as my main keyboard, so I can't say how long this lasts with continuous usage. I use the Plum Nano 75 on my iPad and with my media center and have to recharge it every two weeks I'd say.

On my design, I keep the staggered layout because I think the IBM Models M and F are classic, and of desirable form. I desire to follow along in their stead. This attitude represents the inertia in keyboard design pretty well. Model M and Fs are great keyboards no doubt. I don't believe that these ...

There's not a lot of choice for otholiner or column staggered boards. I consider 40% boards like the Planck more like exercises in minimalism and less of an all round usable keyboard. Truly Ergonomic Keyboard, Kineses Advantage, ErgoDox are pretty much the only keyboards you can buy fully assembled....

On macOS you can change or add a keyboard shortcut for any menu item in any application in one place in system settings. The column view in Finder has no equivalent on Windows.

It's interesting that English doesn't have letters to represent voiced θ and voiceless ð th anymore. Especially since th is sometimes also pronounced the same as t.
