CODE 104-Key Mechanical Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown

Product Review (submitted on July 15, 2017):
Overall this is great keyboard with amazing quality. The typing feels great and it's built to last for years.

I'd love an alternate version of it though with these changes:

a) No number pad option - personally I don't use the number pad mostly - I'm a coder not an accountant. It gets in the way, making me reach further for my mouse and it adds unnecessary weight and makes my typing feel off center, too far to the left.

b) Wireless option - even if meant the backlight is turned off while wireless. It's nice the cord is detachable but I'd like the keyboard to be more mobile and I have enough cords as it is.

c) Lighter - I like the quality and durability but it comes at the cost of being quite heavy. I often move my keyboard between a kitchen working space and my office and it's not very portable.

d) Quieter. I even added the dampeners but it's still louder than I'd like.

e) Finish on the keys - something about the finish on the keys shows the natural oils from my hands much more than other keyboards. Even after a few days use the spacebar for example is party shiny, part dull with different shades.

f) Reduced keyboard height - The thickness of the keyboard height basically forces you to also use a keyboard wrist wrest. So now you're lugging around a heavy keyboard, the detachable cord (which tends to get in the way), and a wrist wrest.
