KBC Poker 3 Keyboard

This keyboard, like the Happy Hacking Keyboard, has strong hacker connection for some reason. I suppose it's the quality of build.

This keyboard features a innovation, of programble keys, in such a way that you just press keys on the keyboard to start programing key macros, without needing to install software. The keyboard has 4 layers, 3 of which can be programed.

Look at the arrow keys. You need to hold the Fn to press them. And Fn is positioned on the right side. So, it is awkward. Good thing is that you can set Caps Lock to Fn.

In the back are 4 dip switches.

Conclusion

In the end, i think this is a great keyboard for programers. In contrast to other gaming keyboards, this one, got dynamic key macros feature without needing extra software.

However, the keyboard does not have physical arrow keys. You can't play pacman with it.
