Top Reddit comments about Numeric Keypads:

u/Ghostcart · 3 pointsr/gpdwin

Evecase 5.6 x 5.6 x 3.5 inch Camera Bag.
Chose this after trying too long to find a 3DS bag that didn't have horrible straps. $16 with Prime

Anker USB 3.0 4* USB tap.
Obviously, you need to have more than 1 USB port to do much, like using a mouse with a usb drive.
$9 with Prime.

Cable Matters Mini HDMI male to HDMI Female cable 2 pack.
Minor shaving required. Not tested extensively.
$10 with Prime.

Lexar USB 3.0 Micro SD Card Reader
If you want to use a ferry card or temporarily pop your card of choice into a computer, one of these is incredibly helpful. Plus it's tiny. You can probably get one cheaper if you don't want the 32GB card included.
$33 with Prime.

Standard XBOne Controller.
Works without any need to mess with dongles on Windows 10. It'll even work with headphones/sets.
$35-$50ish, depending on color and luck.

Venom Xbox One Rechargeable Battery Twin Pack.
I don't recommend these in particular, but a rechargeable pack is a must if you don't want to guzzle batteries.
$17 with Prime.

Logitech Wireless Mouse M185.
Pretty reliable, but only has the standard 2 mouse buttons plus tilting and clicking mousewheel. Receiver stores inside nicely.
$13 with Prime.

Kid Icarus Folding 3DS Stand That I Had In A Box.
Needs a little rubber bumper to help secure the Win properly.
$10 with Prime.

Perrix Asymetrical Folding Keyboard.
This one might be tough to find, but it works amazingly. The weird fold system pushes the main hinge off to the side, so it is less likely to fold the moment you put it on your lap. It also completely hides the hinge when the keyboard is unfolded. A bit cramped, but the keys are properly clicky laptop keys.
For image and model reference

Anker PowerCore 26800 Portable Charger*
While looking for my power pack, I found this one. Seems to be a flat upgrade. 26800mAh with 3
4.8A output USB ports. Also has 2 micro usb inputs for double the charge speed?
$59.99 with Prime.

Other possible pack-ins.

Bluetooth Numpads.
If you're primarily going to be gaming, you might want to drop the full keyboard in favor of a bit of space plus one of these. Works nicely with a mouse if you rebind with HIDMacros. Also more tiny airport/college desk friendly. Example unit is $30

Similarly, you might want to try a half controller + mouse option using a device like the
Nintendo Joy-Con's left unit. Drivers are still being worked on though, so only get this if you're up for beta troubles.
$50ish, but you can get lucky on eBay.

SanDisk Ultra Fit 128GB USB 3.0 flash drive.
The one in all the Win lists I've seen, but I figured I'd list it here for convenience.
$45 with Prime.

All this stuff takes a total of 3 AAA (2 for the keyboard, 1 for the numpad) and 1 AA battery that will need replacing eventually. I hesitate to recommend rechargeable ones, as I have yet to find a micro charger for them.

Inateck USB 3.0 Ethernet + 3 USB 3.0 port adapter.
You might want to replace the 4 port one with one like this if you plan to do network maintenance, secure data transfer, or just plain download things quickly.

$20 with Prime.

PS4 Controller.
Some people prefer this to the XBOne one. It's lighter in the hand (and bag), comes with a built in rechargeable battery with absurd life, and has a touchpad with 4 physical buttons underneath. Can do some pretty crazy things with the touchpad via Steam's controller customization, but has weaker compatibility with non-Steam applications. Also works with PS4 Remote Play.
Worth noting that, unlike the ps3 controller, this can charge directly from any micro usb power supply. Headset support seems to require the official receiver dongle, sold separately.
Controller Alone: $40-60 Depending on color. Silver's cheapest.
Adapter Alone: $66
Controller + Adapter Bundle: $66

Budget 1 Handed Controller**
Hey, if you want to try 1/2 Controller + Mouse, why start off pricey?

Phew, that's about all I have on hand.

u/starchaserro · 2 pointsr/SuggestALaptop


I would suggest taking a look at MSI Prestige Modern 14 because it is pretty light at 1.18 Kg (2.60 lb), has an aluminum chassis, fingerprint reader, has a great Full HD IPS display with good color coverage for photo editing, and over 8 hours of battery life. It doesn't have a number pad but you can just get one of these.

If you're keen on getting a laptop with a built-in number pad, then I would recommend the Lenovo Thinkpad P53s. It is a little bit heavier at 1.75 Kg (3.86 lb) but it has one of the best keyboards on the market and excellent reliability. A downside of this laptop would be the display from the base configuration (it only has 60% sRGB so it's not the best for photo editing), so I would suggest getting the 4K display at the cost of some battery life.

If you don't like any of my recommendations, then maybe take a look at my search results.

You can see and change the search parameters using the "Refine results" button in the upper-left part of the search results page. You can also click on the laptops for more information.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Hope I helped!-

yeah it is pretty ridiculous how much choice there is with mechanical keyboards 😂

the tricky thing about switches is that it's kind of a myth that one switch is better than another for typing or gaming. ultimately, personal preference and what you like will be more important than whatever is on a spec sheet. if there's an electronics store near you that has mechanical keyboards on display, i would strongly recommend heading over there and trying some out before buying, as mechanical keyboards can feel quite different than regular rubber dome keyboards. even if they only have gaming brands available, it would still give you a good indication of what you're in for if you do buy a mechanical keyboard.

i'd say the ducky one 2 mini would be a great choice since you could always just get an external keypad, some of which would offer more functionality than a regular keypad anyway.

i'll link one external keypad that i personally like down below, as well as some other full-size options that you could consider (none of them are white unfortunately):

external keypad: https://www.amazon.com/Mechanical-Portable-Extended-Magicforce-Qisan/dp/B073WB83RQ/ref=sr_1_50?keywords=keypad+mechanical&qid=1563299944&s=gateway&sr=8-50

I know you're trying to figure out how to do this with the built in keyboard but I just got a wireless mechanical numberpad off amazon and it's been pretty nice so far with my gk64




There are laptop style products that would most likely suit a classroom better than a blue switch pad but it may be a way easier option to splurge on something that would be dedicated to your purpose.



u/richardpwechsler · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

The number pad is a Magicforce Smart 21 Key. On Amazon, it's marketed as a Qisan Mechanical Numeric Keypad. It's rocking Gateron Reds, which I'm not terribly fond of, but are comfortable enough for my basic data entry/programming needs. I'm left handed, but I use my mouse in my right hand, so I find the placement of the keypad to be extremely comfortable. My biggest gripe is that it has a fixed USB cable, but given that it was only $30, I can't really complain.


For those interested, here's the link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MR16IGY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/Dintri · 2 pointsr/hotas

I have the same stick and using the rift. What works for me with extra buttons is that I place a razor orbweaver on the table to the left of my sticks and it works great!! You might not need that many extra buttons though and a tarurus would probably work just fine for cheaper. I was tempted to upgrade to the x 52 pro but I I love my current stick and I won't be upset if this breaks in me vs a 200 dollar stick that would make me very mad.


I found this and i bet it works great without overpaying for the other gameboards.


The raised layer in the 5 key should make it easy to memorize each button around it so you don't need to see it in Vr.

Here's another for 9 bucks! If you use a shift key on your Hotas then you are basically doubling the amount of keys here :)


u/JonNickReddit · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Woah i did not look at the cost of this in CAD holy crap that is expensive ($300 bucks plus $24 in shipping). Very good review on your part though, kinda sucks about the rebinding configurator though.

Completely unrelated but i feel like you might think this is cool. Its Outemu Blue Numpad (Outemu are Cherry knockoff's, but there pretty decent), and for $20, has full metal construction, braided cable, and some cheap Blue's. You may have seen it before cause it was on the front page like 4 months ago. Thought you might find it interesting because we have pretty similar tastes in keyboards IMO (i have been eying the model M and zealios purple for a while :P)

DIY gets hit by economies of scale.

You can always buy a USB numpad off Amazon or ebay, down to like $5 is you go with a membrane numpad instead of Mechanical.

As for Blue switches? How noisy is your office? Or do all your coworkers wear headphones? Blues are a good choice if you do not mind the noise. Otherwise Browns are a good choice. Reds and Blacks are OK, but if you can, try some switches at your local Best Buy or Microcenter. Note, Razer Green= Blues, Razer Orange=Browns. My local Best Buy only carries Razer and Corsair boards.

By the way, here are the links to the ones in the picture:



Neither one of them is *bad*, I was just curious if there was something in between the two in price.


\^ This guy is pretty nice too, probably the closest to matching the compactness of the Yoda II. I don't love red switches, but if you don't mind them, it's got relatively high praise.

There are a lot of general-purpose programmable hardware keyboards, and historically, there have been plenty of good navigation clusters. But finding something with the good old familiar shape that's actually in stock at a store is "abandon all hope, all ye who attempt this" level difficult. ಠಗಠ

And of course the sky's the limit if you turn it into a weekend project to make something yourself. I don't mind building, but it usually turns into a month-long project of obsessing over every single detail until I forgot why I started it, lol.

u/OrangeBuck · 2 pointsr/SuggestALaptop

I'm not an expert on CPUs, but the main factor that applies is the core speed and the number of cores. If you're not gaming or running CAD programs, you shouldn't need the extra cores as far as I can tell. RAM is also fairly important in the work that you're doing. It wouldn't be a step back from what I can tell, mainly because the i5 is a newer model.

In terms of the numbpad, only 15.6" and up will have them. 14" and below won't have them. You can always shop around for an external numbpad, and you actually may find it more comfortable than a regular one. Here's the cheapest, best rated one, and here's a search page for them.

You said that you like the Y40's look, so maybe consider its older brother - the Y50. The only thing about it that you won't like is that it has dedicated graphics (which you won't need). That will add to the weight and make it a pricier machine. Even so, the price is still in your range.

You're not dreaming, I'm just having trouble finding a laptop that:

  • is around $1000
  • has a numbpad (effectively making it a 15.6" or above)
  • is moderately slim and lightweight (< 4/5 lbs. && ~ 1 in. thick)
  • has a core speed of around ~2.5-3GHz (4th gen i5 or i7)
  • has at least 8GB RAM

    Does that accurately reflect your restrictions / preferences? The only real trouble I'm running into now are the first three bullets. To have a numbpad makes it a 15.6", and to be 15.6", it won't be very light without breaking $1000 easily.

    Sorry to not be able to give you another model, but help me out with that one question, could you live with an external numbpad?
u/Abaxvahl · 2 pointsr/roguelikes

My favorite time to play roguelikes is whenever I should be doing something important, look schoolwork (such as right now). Usually I'll play for a few hours, a couple of different games but I'll focus on one usually. Currently I am focusing on Caves of Qud and Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead. I feel I might play some UnReal World today though, it's such a zen game.

Since I have a laptop the only thing that could be considered a set-up is I have bought an external keypad just for roguelike purposes.

Playing for a long time can be good or bad for me. It really depends on how cocky I get with my later-game characters, especially if the game has a part where it lets me be awesome, and lets me completely own everything (or I've just gotten lucky drops).

u/Forzathong · 5 pointsr/pcars

Hello fellow racers,

(TL;DR down below)

This build was done in over the course of two days and roughly 21 minutes. Mostly due to other obligations but some planning and testing was done.

The labels I printed myself on a DYMO LT-100H, I also ordered an off brand pack of extra colors to bring some life to the project. The “button box” is a ROTTAT 22-key Numeric Keypad and was the most expensive part of the project.

In the little time that I’ve used it so far I enjoy the mechanical nature of the keys. Since I wear headphones when I play I like that I can feel when I’ve pressed the key. It adds a little extra pizzazz if you will and gives it a seemingly heavier stroke. The biggest con is programming it to the game, some of the keys are not usable with num-lock on/off. So it took some thinking to determine what I would want for the different “states” that I could enable with the num-lock key.

TL;DR $48.26 if you already own scissors, it’s cool so far and I’m happy with it.

u/WinterDoggo · 5 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

> I feel like he’ll appreciate the full size since he’s a programmer.

This is potentially completely backwards. Programming isn't data entry, and a numpad is not required for most tasks.

I can't speak to his work style or personal preferences obviously, but many programmers prefer smaller boards. I get by with this.

I would say get the TKL unless you think he can go down to 60%, it's ergonomically better (keeps the angle of your shoulders better when using a mouse) and then you can get a separate numpad if he really needs it, that can be put away when not in use, or placed on the left hand side.

u/Nibiria · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Question one: Toss it, break it, use it as a desk accoutrement -- I gave my last one to my best friend because he didn't have one. That part I'm not terribly helpful with, since this is my second keyboard ever and I've had it for years now.

So the format you're thinking of is called TKL, or tenkeyless. No numpad, so it's more ergonomic (there's a diagram somewhere, but basically it puts the mouse in a better place for your shoulders). For those that get a TKL and need a numpad, they can buy an external one for about $20 (like this one).

If you want one with a numpad, the format you're looking for is called full-sized or 104-key (sometimes 108-key, 4 keys are added along the function row above the numpad). There are plenty of keyboards that fit this size, most of which you could find here. Generally, if there's a TKL version, there's also a full-size version. Not true for everything, but true for many.

Has anyone given those mechanical usb number pads a shot? Sure, they take up one extra usb slot, but there are times where I've thought of giving it a shot - specially on my surface and such.

EDIT: Someone mentioned the Ducky, THANK YOU - I remember hearing about it, thinking it was awesome, than a while later forgot what it was even called. No manner of 'mechanical number pad' would come up with a hit to the ducky pocket. Kept thinking maybe I was just imagining it at this point...

Luckily KBDFans seems to have quite a few Ninja from that GB so I didn't have to give up the SA profile or wait for another GB, it does mean I'm still stuck with wonky early Maxkey legends though (oh well not a big deal for me). Went with a wireless numpad because I hardly ever use them.

Oh man, yea that would definitely get annoying having to program every single key one at a time, something like QMK would be way more powerful and faster to use whenever you want to switch your layout since you just need to edit your layout in a text editor, turn it into a hex file and then flash it.

I got this for my numberpad, I know there are definitely better ones out there, but honestly this one does the job fine

u/holderORfolder · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Also what type of scanner was it? Just any old scanner? I'm just wondering if i can rely on any scanner to talk to the Pi alright.

u/mes09 · 20 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

If you don't care about Bluetooth I just bought this for $20

It's definitely a generic blue switch -Outemu- but it works great. For $20 when I desperately needed a numpad for some extended data entry was totally worth it. Very solid, long usb cord, metal plate with plastic bottom, and very compact, without tons of extra plastic like some of the other numpads.

Only complaint is the slightly unusual layout with the tab button and small + key.

Also it does output numpad codes.

u/iammartyr · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

> Any layered acrylic case should be as short or shorter than your K70 , though the only fullsize one I can think of at the moment is the winkeyless fullsize board.

What is a layered acrylic case?

> Also, as a former Linux HPC admin/current dev who works in Linux all day, do you really need a full-size? For network admin work I could see the numpad being handy for IPs, but that's about it. You could also do an external numpad if you really needed one. Breaking away from full-size really opens up options for lower boards. The magicforce, for example, sits really low.

I guess it's just a comfort thing. I have to use a PIN frequently throughout the day. I could buy a stand-alone numpad though as you have suggested. I thought about the ergonomic benefits of having the mouse closer to the keyboard by using a TKL. The only TKL I tried was a cheap one from amazon. It was nice but the return key was oddly shaped so I was put off by it. Other than that it was just a muscle memory issue.

> It could also be worthwhile to train yourself to float your wrists and have some better typing posture, especially if you are gonna be doing it for 40 hours a week.

I wouldn't be opposed to this. Another one of those habitual things though. It could also be the reason for my wrist pain though. I'm so used to putting the meat of my palms on the wrist rest.

u/intrepped · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

How would you compare the NK01 to say the Jelly Comb or the MF21? Clearly the MF21 uses gateron switches, so that's a plus if you don't want clicky blues but if you used either of them that'd be interesting. Also, I don't particularly care about their cap quality since they'll all be pretty meh and I intend to add a GMK numpad set.

u/Jolly_Green_Giant · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Would you be willing to try something like using a Leopold FC660M with a dedicated numpad?

I currently have a similar setup with my HHKB and I use my mouse right in the middle. I find it much easier to access everything and it's more ergonomic because less distance between your mouse to typing.

Oh wait, just saw the RGB requirement. Let me look around again.

>What is a layered acrylic case?

A case made up of layers of acrylic 😛. Most keyboard cases now are injection molded plastic or, on the higher end, milled aluminum. Layered (or sandwich) cases are made up of 3-4 thin layers of something, usually acrylic or a mix of acrylic and aluminum. I have a layered case on a board right now that has an aluminum bottom with an acrylic mid layer and an acrylic plate. Because the case is just a few things layers, these tend to be some of the thinnest cases.

>I guess it's just a comfort thing. I have to use a PIN frequently throughout the day. I could buy a stand-alone numpad though as you have suggested.

It was nice but the return key was oddly shaped so I was put off by it. Other than that it was just a muscle memory issue.

The return key looks pretty standard in the amazon pictures... What was weird about it?

I have a standalone numpad that I pull out when I need to do some data entry. I also usually put it on the left side when I use it so that I don't have to move my mouse over. It takes a little getting used to, but it's certainly not hard!

>I wouldn't be opposed to this. Another one of those habitual things though. It could also be the reason for my wrist pain though. I'm so used to putting the meat of my palms on the wrist rest.

It's almost definitely the cause of the problem. I'd keep a wrist rest around and just try to consciously think about it. Maybe set a timer somewhere just to remind you to think about it. Retraining old habits keeps you sharp 😉

u/MiataCory · 2 pointsr/iRacing

I got one of these USB keypads to use for extra buttons when I ran out of space on the wheel. Works pretty well, since you can feel around for it while you're in VR, and the mechanical switches mean you're not worried about missing the key.

Don't worry about improving your lap times right now. Worry about trying to run the same lap 5 times in a row. Once you get the consistency down, THEN focus on the actual times. It's hard to know if a change you made has worked or not without having the ability to repeat it!

And as others have said, starting from the back is a good way to get your SR up, so that you're in ranked races. They're much less of a free-for-all, and it's a lot more calming to be with people who won't randomly cut across or do something weird.


TL/DR: Extra buttons and seat time!

u/Strottinglemon · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I'm a fan of using tenkeyless boards with a separate numpad. That way you can put it wherever is most comfortable for you. To the left of the keyboard, or to the right of the mouse so you get the comfort of having your hands closer together while also having the functionality of a numpad.

u/ItRhymesWithGrape · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

Everything works on it fine. I only ever used it for Elite Dangerous so I'm not sure how it would fair with plane based games. Since this is a starter HOTAS, it didn't have as many buttons/inputs that I would have liked so I got a numpad for all the extra buttons I needed. Other than that, it's a solid plug & play HOTAS.

Also, I found the box :)

u/fouras · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Pro M is good, it's just the keycaps that kinda suck. They aren't any worse than most others though.

You could also try a separate numpad and position it wherever's most comfortable.

Spotted this while browsing on Amazon, here's some info:

  • The switches are Kailh.

  • The types are Black, Blue, Brown and Red. Blue switches is at $52.50.

  • This keyboard have been around for more than a year.

  • There are a lot of reviews out there for this one, general thoughts are that the keycaps are not high quality, build are solid but the design are a tad wonky.

    I ordered one already, shame that it won't ship through weekends although I have Prime.

    Also, the RGB version is at $69.99 in case anyone is interest.

    Edit: Here's a review on the RGB version and the non RGB

    One thing I like about this keyboard is the concept of additional keypad, if you don't like to spend an (absurd) $40 then you can just get a cheap keypad to plug in like this one, bam, you have a (somewhat) full size keyboard.

    Also, the keypad that they sell have different switches for you to choose if you buy it separately.
u/Saikou0taku · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Do you want it to be programmable? I use a programmable board and numpad, but I honestly have no idea why I need a programmable numpad if it's just for spreadsheet work.

That being said, non-programmable there's the Jelly Comb.

For programmable, you have The Cluepad and the Felix. If you want a challenge, you could get a NKPC switchtester and make your own like u/theimmc

u/Metaldrake · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Firstly if you like black switches, I'd highly recommend getting Gateron Blacks. They're far smoother than Cherry.

I'd suggest picking up a VA87MR when it goes on Massdrop again, fits your requirements of floating keys, minimal branding, detachable cable, backlighting, and has Gateron Black as an option, as well as costing ~$130ish. Only thing it doesn't have is a steel finish which I don't think you'll be able to find on most boards. There's also a aluminium case available to purchase separately for $120 or so.

As for the numpad, the cheapest option would be to get a Jelly Comb numpad though it has some nonstandard key sizes (also not available in blacks). There's also the FC210TP.

I actually have that numpad. It’s a $20-25 wireless numpad with what looks like cherry blue clones which have blue stems and are definitely clickier than my browns. The switches have “content” molded on them if that means anything. It’s a pretty great numpad with one issue: my dongle gives off cool whine. It’s not really that loud, but I have an extremely quiet PC and it’s high pitched enough to stand out while I’m not using the PC.

>Now my question is, if I were to set up a dedicated streaming PC that doesn't have the greatest of PC gaming specs, would I notice a major dip in performance? Or would I see an increase in performance?

Your main computer wouldn't notice any performance difference whether you are streaming or not, since outputting to the capture card of the "Streaming PC" is no different than using another monitor (or in the case of using a splitter, no difference at all).


>When setting up the dedicated streaming pc, is it usually easier to just run a remote desktop from your main PC (to adjust settings, etc) or just put it on the second monitor?

It tends to be easier to simply use some form of remote desktop software. I've used software before that binds hotkeys on my keyboard to commands on the "Streaming PC", but it had its bugs. I've since moved onto using one of these for hotkeys: http://www.amazon.com/V7-USB-Numeric-Keypad-KP0N1-7N0P/dp/B0060WDI5Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1408168616&sr=8-1&keywords=keypad

Jelly Comb Numpad. I got the white version and ended up handwiring it to use as desoldering practice/macropad and to have a removable cable. The switches are really loud but very nice.

u/Gishnu · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

First timer here too. I just bought this, went to the wiki for help finding keycaps and Christ it's huge. Different shapes and inserts and angles. So overwhelming.

u/ambelie · 4 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Honestly, I just use this one. The switches are kind of shit in my personal opinion, but it's easy to take apart and desolder so you can solder new switches into it. It's cheap and not too bad looking.

u/Strottman · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Here's the tenkey I use with it, it's fantastic to be able to put it wherever you want.

u/irishsofabread · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

yeah it definitely isn't big deal but figured it was worth a shot. I think I'm going to go with this one http://www.amazon.com/Mechanical-Numeric-Keypad-Jelly-Comb/dp/B01E8U8HKW

u/LesserJohn · 1 pointr/roguelikes

Try this. 10 bucks and you got a keypad. I never could get into roguelikes until I started buying laptops with keypads. Sure, there are other ways to play them, and there are probably other ways I could wear my pants, like tied around my head or something, but they aren't real appealing =)

Tho if you're not real familiar with the genre, I'd advise playing a few of the ones off the sidebar to get a feel for them. Maybe also get comfortable with both the meaning and spirit of the Berlin definition of roguelike. Before the argument erupts, no, strict adherence to the Berlin interpretation isn't essential to being called a roguelike, but it should have most of the things mentioned. Otherwise you're making (insert game type) with roguelike elements, often pejoratively known as a roguelite.

u/grexl · 3 pointsr/factorio

If you are playing on a system such as a laptop without a numpad, you could use one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Numeric-Jelly-Comb-Portable-Computer/dp/B01E8TTWZ2/

Numpads are also useful when typing Factorio numbers into spreadsheets to calculate ratios.

I've been happy with this for the last 6 months, keep it to the right of my mouse when I need it and tucked under a monitor when I don't.

u/nssone · 5 pointsr/buildapcsales

I actually already have one of these so I'm thinking something like this would go well with it.

u/Ophidios · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Magicforce 21 is a good one, and might nail exactly what you're looking for. They're also cheap!

There's a Massdrop running on them now, but you could also just buy it from Amazon. After shipping costs, you'll save $2 USD from Massdrop, and have to wait until August 28th for it to ship. Guess it's up to you if 2.5 months is worth $2, haha.

The one negative review is crazy. I tried to duplicate the exact problem that person experienced, and no luck. It works fine.

u/Mcashley311 · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Womp. Got it through Amazon; was still in stock on April 6th, when I ordered it.

I really like the MS Designer BT keyboard. It feels a lot like the typecover and the layout is similar enough that my productivity doesn't drop when I switch between the BT KB (in the office) and the typecover (on the road)

u/robbiek54 · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I want to get a 22-key keypad kind of like [this](Mechanical Numeric Keypad,Jelly Comb USB Braid Cable Numpad 22-key Number Pad - Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01E8U8HKW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_28jUzbVJC1WG3) to use for gaming along with my mouse (as opposed to a full keyboard which i would only use half of).

So I have two questions- I am going to be rebinding all the keys on the keypad, so I want to get keycaps with custom letters/symbols on them (nothing that wouldn't be found on a full keyboard), so 1) where can I get these and 2) Is there a better keypad keypad out there, or will this keypad do?

I'm new to mechanical keyboards, so honestly I just wanted to try one out for a cheap price. The reviews on that keypad say the switches are a lot clickier and louder than Cherry MX blue switches.

u/clee290 · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards


There's the Ducky Pocket, which can also be used as a calculator.

For a less-expensive option, maybe the Magicforce numpad. I don't really know if it's good or bad, but a lot of people like the Magicforce 68.

u/IIFO · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Hey, there's nothing wrong with it if you like it. For a cheaper alternative to the keyboard you mentioned you can try a Magicfoce 68 and a separate numpad.

u/Call_Me_ZeeKay · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I bought a Adesso AKP-220B for $30 off amazon (for some reason its listed at $50 right now). It has real cherry blues in it. And while it might be a bit ugly, its perfectly fine to me.

u/Summerie · 1 pointr/buildapc

I don't know, but I feel like you could make this work for cheaper.

u/erleichda_archiving · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Here is mine I followed this guide. When I bought mine it was only $14 on Amazon. If you start with the Jellycomb Numpad, you don't have to buy switches or a case... Just the Teensy 2.0 and the diodes.

There may be other options, this one is very easy to get you started.

u/mikegriffin84 · 1 pointr/Surface

something to consider for your situation would be an external USB number pad like this: https://www.amazon.com/V7-KP1019-USB-4NB-Low-Profile-Numeric-Keypad/dp/B017YOXL82

And use this: http://ahkscript.org/
software to map those keys to whatever function you want.

u/Dis_Kotex · 1 pointr/diablo3

Sure can, I use one. works just fine.

u/CaptainAmerricka · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

It should work whether or not a keyboard is even plugged in, the software your mouse is running through makes the computer think your mouse is a keyboard when you press the button. You could test that just by unplugging your keyboard.

And like I said, I also am rather attached to the idea of having a number pad which is why I only caved when I found standalone mechanical number pads. Like this one

u/PeacockPanzer · 4 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

This one, I think. I own one and it's very nice for the price.

u/construktz · 1 pointr/SuggestALaptop

Get her an Acer C720 Chromebook and a wireless number pad or get a wired one.

It would suit her needs just fine.

If she really needs windows, still get the 10 key off to the side and pick up an ASUS X200LA.

u/dramahitler · 51 pointsr/buildapc

A Logitech G13 or Razer Tartaurus might meet your needs. Or if you're cheap a USB numpad and using something like sharpkeys or autohotkey to rebind your numpad would probably work.

u/BostonNewspaper · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

It's a Poker 2 and mechanical numpad I got for $20. The Poker is browns and the numpad is (very satisfying clicky) blues. I got the keycaps on Massdrop and found I couldnt go full blanks so I put the numbers/brackets etc back in.

u/whosdr · 1 pointr/runescape

So far, only solution I can seem to find involves this. :p


Doesn't look like any fun registry hacks can re-bind the mouse-keys to regular keyboard keys - and I doubt you have a numpad button either.

Question - does that script above if you go into On-Screen Keyboard, click Options - Turn on numeric key pad ?

u/Woasha · 1 pointr/roguelikes

It's funny to me that in the Roguelike world this is our SNES controller.

u/ariolander · 4 pointsr/buildapcsales

60% keyboards let you position your mouse closer to WASD, so I feel it is more ergonomic for gaming. I usually go [60% Keyboard] [Mouse] [Numpad] on my desk, because when I use a numpad I am rarely also using my mouse.

The good part about having a separate Numpad is I can put it in a drawer when I don't need it, or move it to my left and use it as a macro pad for other apps when I don't need to enter numbers.

Edit: I use a 60% keyboard + separate numpad both at home and work. At work I use a numpad / macropad with customized legends: ELSRA USB Wired Programming Numeric Keypad ControlPad
I got this one to use with my laptop when I was taking an Accounting class in college, that I now keep in my drawer at home: ROTTAY Mechanical USB Wired Numeric Keypad with Blue LED Backlit

u/Topre · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Not sure if you are just looking for a number pad, or a keyboard with a modular number pad.

Adesso has a relativity cheap number pad compared to other brands.

Keycool has a better looking number pad for a bit more. I'm not sure if the Keycool number pad's PCB supports LED's. There is another version of it that comes with LED's.

As for a modular mechanical keyboard other than the DSI keyboard, there is the Azio Mech4 and Mech5. They aren't the best looking keyboards but they do have a modular number pad.

u/Mickiemoemoe · 2 pointsr/osugame

In my experience, the buttons on the tablets are far from suitable for tapping. I would just get a mechanical number pad like this if you don't want to pay for a full mechanical keyboard.

u/el_americano · 2 pointsr/computers

This is a number pad with a numlock button. Turning the numlock on/off would change the function of the keys from numbers to arrows (or whatever else is written on them other than a number). Because you don't have a numberpad like that you have no use for a numlock button. You still have the same functions on your keyboard if you use the arrow buttons on the bottom right, or the numbers bar at the top. Hope this helps clarify things!

u/2SnHamans · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

If you aren't in a rush there is this on Massdrop. Otherwise something like this.

u/LostPrude · 1 pointr/Accounting

Most of the price of the Ducky Pocket comes from it being a mech.

u/shadowstar2417 · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

Magicforce 68 with outemu switches is the cheapest keyboard that I would personally recommend, it's $40. If you don't care about quality at all, I'm sure you could find a really cheap $15-30 keyboard on aliexpress.

Speaking of Magicforce, the Magicforce numpad is exactly $30 on amazon. link

Alternatively, the Jelly Comb numpad is only about $15, but it only comes with blue switches. You could swap them out yourself though.

u/league_of_fail · 0 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

As an accountant (A&A), I recommend this instead. Unless the RGB is worth the extra $30. Gateron browns rather than cherry, half the price, and I can't imagine a situation in which you'd need a pocket calculator as opposed to being within 24" of a computer. Ofc, /u/gizzardgullet posted that his wife rarely has hers plugged in...I didn't go into accounting because of my imagination! I also may have an irrational distaste for wireless things.

u/PiwwowPants · 7 pointsr/buildapc

Not sure how many F keys Windows would recognize but regedits (with SharpKeys or directly in the registry) would always be recognized.

The thing is that you need one that outputs numpad codes. If you do not get that, the numpad will output the numrow scan codes and remapping the numpad will remap the numrow above your alpha keys.

Here is a numpad for $20. It will output numpad codes that you can remap in the registry to be anything. It uses mediocre Cherry MX Blue clones but they aren't the worst. They are blue clones though so they "click" when pressed.

u/RedditRye · 1 pointr/RetroPie

u/vedo1117 · 1 pointr/matlab

you can always get yourself some cheap numeric keypad like this which is basically just a small keyboard, and a couple of buttons, take the board of the keypad out, solder wires from the buttons to the 1, 2, 3 and 4 keys and put everything in a project box and voila, you've got a button box that looks like the thing in your link and sends the keystrokes you want yo the computer, dirt cheap and no programming or custom electronics.

Here's the STL. The keyboard was a cheapo I bought locally which I can't find online, but another user in these comments found a really similar looking one off amazon, here's a link for that. It's similar enough that I bet you can get away with tweaking the scale in the slicer at most.
