Home Theater Computers > Standard Wireless Keyboard Without Number Pad?

Not quite standard, but I've used this wireless keyboard for quite some time and found it very easy to adapt to: http://amzn.com/B004LB5AKY



I switched to a Logitech K400 for the integrated touchpad. The K400 was a bit tougher to adjust to with its smaller keys and tiny right shift. The Verbatim wireless keyboard has (as far as I know) standard sized keys, and I had no issues adjusting to it from a full-sized keyboard.

87 key standard keyboard is the layout you want.. I can't believe nobody makes this, but it appears to be the case...
Maybe you can buy a wireless full-size and chop off the keypad: http://eriberto.pro.br/blog/?p=1052

Not wireless, but your exact layout, for reference:

USB or PS/2, and you can pick the type of cherry switches in it:

and a cheaper option:

More fruitless searches (choosing tenkeyless and wireless gives zip):

I just got the Samsung Black Aluminum Slim USB wireless Keyboard. It's EXACTLY what you want. It types great too, nice feel to the keys. I bought it at Provantage.com. Hope this works for you!

Brilliant thread and funny :-) Here are the results of my tenkeyless search.

4 years on and it is still very difficult to find a tenkeyless keyboard that you don't have to rob a bank to buy. £120 (~$150) for a keyboard only because it has 10 fewer keys??? Crazy!

This is what I was using until now - Cherry Stream XT:



Great and quiet keyboard but huge. This is my point of reference.

My favourite design here was this made by the OP, apart from the backslash/pipe key that I prefer to have under my pinky:



After a lot of reading and browsing I opted for a membrane HP Mini Keyboard:



Unfortunately impossible to buy brand new any more.

Then I stumbled across IBM Spacesaver II:



You won't get it brand new either.

Finally I had to settle on Roccat Arvo, an unusual looking keyboard with a hybrid design which I actually quite like. It comes with different layouts to choose from including UK with backslash under pinky as pictured. It took me maybe 10 minutes to get used to this hybrid numpad/arrow keys/insert etc keys combo - the guide on key '5' was enough to have me converted quickly. You switch between numpad and arrow keys with a special button in the top right corner. Price - around £35 - good. My only gripe with this keyboard are crammed, sunken function keys. It's not a mechanical keyboard although still quite clicky compared with my quiet Cherry reference keyboard. The keys are medium height but normal size, apart from the aforementioned function keys.

I am on a similar quest, except that I want it to be a keyboard/mouse combo (so I can use one USB port for one receiver), and I also would like volume up/down controls, similar to Logitech keyboards.

Not bad, but I don't like the crowded space around the arrow keys.

This is almost perfect (even though the volume controls require pressing a Fn button). Is there a mouse that can be used with the same USB receiver?

Found this keyboard without a number pad and looks like the standard key layout, just has the letters and labels on the front side of the keys instead of the top.

 

This is the Cherry MX Red edition of the Quick Fire and is a mechanical keyboard featuring 1ms response rate, multimedia keys, compact design, interchangeable keys and anti-ghosting.
IMG_1745.JPGThis is an interesting keyboard I must say. It has a compact design (no number pad) and is a full-fledged gaming keyboard. Home page: http://cmstorm.com/en/products/keyboards/Stealth/

Does anyone know where to get a keyboard just like this (model #AA-SK6PWUB /US)? 87-key (standard tenkeyless layout) slim keys. The only one I can find is over $200 on Amazon. I found it being sold on ephaser too but when I went to buy it, the page to enter my credit card was not HTTPS so I'm pretty weary...
