Total key count: 61 keys. (Fn key didn't count here)


• Mechanical keys. Available in Cherry MX {blue, brown, red, black, white}. [see Keyboard Key Switch Mechanisms]

• Doubleshot PBT keycaps. This means, key labels never wear off, and keycap won't become shiny or become dented after years of use. [see Keycap Material: ABS, PBT, PVC, POM]

• 9 Multiple-modes full colored backlighting, one LED per key. You can have various rainbow effects.

• On-board key programing. This means, you do not need to install software/driver to program the keys. Just press keys on the keyboard to remap keys or add key macros. For example, make CapsLock do Ctrl.

• 2 spacebars. You can program one of them to some other key.

• 3 Built-in preset layouts, Qwerty, Dvorak and Colemak and 3 fully programmable layouts. [see Dvorak Keyboard Layout]

• Compact. This keyboard is very small. Easy to carry for travel. No number pad. No dedicated function keys. To press F2, for example, hold Fn and press 2. To press arrow keys, hold Fn and press I J K L.

• split keyboard. This is great for ergonomics. If you type a lot, place the 2 pieces apart, or angled anyway you want, so you don't bend your wrists to type.

What is in the box? keyboard, Mini USB cable, Micro USB cable, 1 extra Orange color Enter key, and a Keypuller

I think this one is lovely, for those who want split and traditional layout.

This keyboard is basically like Poker 3 Keyboard, but split.
