Problem of Gergo Keyboard

No tactile homing bump on the F J keys keycap plus flat top keycaps means, often i misposition my fingers on the wrong row or column.

The no case is also problem. For example, putting it in bag, using it while lying in bed with a tablet. The bare PCB with eletronics in the back hitches clothing, and the exposed USB connectors are prone to damage.

Also the 50g keys are too heavy for me. If you buy gergo, i recommend 40g keys or lighter.

When you buy a Gergo, make sure you get curved top keycaps, two tacticle bump keycaps, 40g or lighter spring, and get a case.
