    I prefer half height enter keys, makes more damned sense than wasting space.

    The Enter key shape is because the keyboard is U.S/Canada layout.
    Over here, I wish you good luck in finding a keyboard with the flied L shaped enter. Unless you get a French Canadian keyboard (or multilingual (both English and French) of course).

    Personally, I despite the U.K layout keyboard. The backspace is soo small. The left shift key is a single key size which means it's double hard to reach it. No one uses the negate sign key (left of the 1), you can easily put a useful key here, like ~ or in your case #.

    My point is that you can't comment on such thing... It's not something that Gigabyte invented, it's the U.S/Canada layout. Your just used to the U.K layout, that is all.

    All keyboard layouts per country:

    This would only look right next to a 'LanBoy Air' and both of them are wrong.....very very wrong. It's a shame, I like the shape of this keyboard but the colour and keys put me off.

    That marketing tripe certainly matches the bollox associated with Lamborghini of old, before Audi bought them.

    The UK backspace key is full-size. Half-size backspace keys are EVIL. I hit the enter key after everything I type in msn. I'm pretty sure I strike it on a part of the key that is missing in the US layout, and it seems very awkward to me to think of hitting where the # key is on the UK layout every time I need an enter. For me the # is very awkward. The left shift still feels easy to hit, and I dont really use it that often anyway. Also, as an aside, the |\ key that is there on the UK layout gives me an extra key around the wasd. :)

    Why is there still so many new keyboards developed with those stoopid clunky keys?

    Slim/flat like the Logitech UltraX is 200% better and way more comfortable to use then those bricks.

    Anyone else think that pattern on the volume strip is VERY reminiscent to the Lamorghini Reventon? Infact, the yellow is very lambo too. Lambo tribute anyone?
    Still, I wouldnt actually want a keyboard like that on my desk.

    I'm typing this on a Cherry, and even as a touch typist I personally think they are incredibly over rated. At least the Cherry 'blues' are, dunno about the other key types.
