Got it yesterday. Many thanks to Lord of the Sith  for advising to pay attention to this keypad. Did not notice any errors when it’s connected to xim4. Leds are working. Just a little tweaking on the pc, and you're ready to play. It's funny but according to my feelings the red Cherry switches are felt not so different from the brown Kailh switches . Maybe because I did an o-ring mod first before testing. x)

No directional  thumb pad stick no buy. I love using the thumb bad for 4 inputs for the d pad functions.

I know this is an old thread, but I just came across it. Does anyone know if the switches are plate or PCB mounted? I was thinking of doing an Ergodox build with a combination of Gateron browns and reds but this looks cheaper. I have a Let's Split but there just aren't enough keys on one board to play comfortably with. This pad looks perfect and for that price I wouldn't mind picking one up and messing around with it. Thanks.

Are people that have this Keypad still liking it? I just bought the non-backlit version with red switches and awaiting for it to show. Just curious how it's holding up. I hope to make 1 touch macros with it for building walls and ramps in fornite. The way the controls are now makes it a nightmare for building to me.

I went with the non-backlit Gateron Black switches and I love it. I had to do absolutely nothing to it and it worked just fine. Feels well built. Definitely worth it IMO if you're trying to save space.

I love this keypad! I've used it every day since I started this thread and it's still going strong.
I like the face I have ALT, SPACE, and M on the same row for my thumb to reach!

Considering buying the second half if I can find it and doing away with my 60% poker 3 altogether, which i keep on the side for typing!

Thanks for the replies! I received mine today and must say for the price and how compact it is, I'm loving it! I did get the non-backlit Gateron Red switches and first thing I did was pull all the key caps off and put blue O-rings on them. Quiets it down a little and very happy with the result. I messed with the macro system some and although I've kinda figured it out, I can't really get the results I want for quick button building in Fortnite. I'll have to work on that again. When I had all the caps off the switches looks to be plate mounted? Not 100% sure because mechanical keyboards are new to me. Anyways, if anyone is looking for gamepad I would definitely consider this.

Yeah, I did the same thing as you and put 1.5mm O-rings and that's when I noticed it was plate mounted as well. Oh well, I'm still going to desolder some of the switches and maybe install some Gateron green or brown tactile switches in the future. I didn't mess with the macros yet but I do want to make the Z key act as a crouch long press so I can simply tap it and have my soldier go prone. Overall, I'm very glad I came across this post. Thanks Lord Of The Sith.
