Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
The SuperCoder 2000 offers a simple, clean layout without fancy extra features like a numpad or media keys, enjoyed by some people.
Pro Great for when Assembly offers too much abstraction
Pro Air cooled
This keyboard is air-cooled, which means there is no noise generated by cooling fans. This makes it great for quiet work environments where fan noise could be a nuisance.
Pro Minimalistic design
Unlike some other keyboards, the SuperCorder has a clean, simple white look, which can be less distracting and favored over more flashy, gaming-oriented keyboards.
Pro Great key spacing for error free code
The spacing between the 0 and 1 keys is larger than traditional keyboards. You'll rarely fatfinger a 0 when you mean to enter a 1.
Pro Saves desk space
This keyboard has less keys than a standard 104-key keyboard, and thus is smaller and takes up less space on your desk. This makes it great for compact work environments.
Pro Especially good for professional coding
Pro Does not allow for errors
The lack of a delete button forces you to progressively learn how to always produce error-free code. This is an enormous advantage when it comes to the learning process.
Bonus: you can fix logical and mathematical errors with subsequent commands.
Pro Great tool for truly low level programming
Considering the performance overheads of managed code, go beyond assembly, back to basics.
Pro Vetted by Jeff Dean
Con No Caps Lock key
Con Can only type binary code
This keyboard is useless for typing anything other than ones and zeros, which makes me wonder why it's even on Slant.
Con No backlit keys
Unfortunately in dark rooms this keyboard becomes increasingly challenging to use. Although, assuming you know how to locate the home key you should be fine. More of a nitpick.
Con Uncomfortable for Two-handed use
While working with two hands, this keyboard is too small and key spacing is too narrow.
Con No support for Mac OS X
This keyboard offers no software support for Mac OS X. It only works with Windows or Linux operating systems.
