My razer turret fell apart in several ways... and they don't sell parts for it. Regardless of the fact that i've previously had serious problems with a mouse handling the vibrations of the truck, which the turret excelled at with it's magnetic mouse and pad, i decided to give getting a real keyboard and mouse set a shot again.
I wanted a wireless mechanical keyboard. The offerings for this are few and far between, for whatever reason, and the one that had the best match for my semi-truck needs is this sketchy brand LTC.https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0774 ... UTF8&psc=1
I consider it sketchy mostly because it's obviously a very tiny outfit at best, and at worse it could be a useless piece of junk. The price seems suspiciously low for a mechanical too. Regardless i gave it a shot and so far i've been pretty happy. The key response is as perfect as any other keyboard and it feels great and is small. The laughable 4 hour life with lights on almost defeats the purpose of it being wireless, but it's much better with the lights off and i at least have the option of using the lights if i need them.
The only annoying part is that they built in this always on function key grouping, and you can only move it around the keyboard to d ifferent groups of Fn keys instead of turning it off. The default setting is the least intrusive which is the arrow keys are always active disabling ? alt and control on qwerty, and for me on dvorak instead of ? my z key. Now every time i normally type z it arrow keys to the top of the page or something and starts typing junk there, then i have to undo it and press Fn + up arrow. Unpleasant but i'm used to having to make concessions to fit things into my environment. Still.... why in the hell would you even make something like that cyclable, but not add a cycle with none
of the groups on. This is what happens when really tiny companies make things.
So far it's been suprisingly nice which is why i'm even taking the time to post about it, but still unless i can find another compact mechanical wireless keyboard, it'll just have to do. My hope for the durability of this thing isn't very high though.
