Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Backlighting has two color options
The keyboard backlighting color can be set to either green and blue or red and blue. This option can be switched on the fly.
Pro Compact layout
The 60% form factor means your hands almost never have to depart from home row for any reason, increasing efficiency.
Pro Wide switch choice
With this keyboard, there's a wide variety of switches to choose from. From practically all Cherry switches to cheaper, non-backlit Gateron or Matias switches.
This keyboard is built to last.
Pro Beautiful legend typeface
The keycaps are typeset in Futura, arguably a more attractive option than what many similar keyboards (such as the KBC Pokers) feature.
Pro Customisable layout
The v60 has six DIP switches on the back that allow for a variety of layout customization options, and the keyboard comes with extra keycaps to reflect those options, so that the inscriptions always match the key functions. Some examples include replacing Caps Lock with Ctrl (a popular trick for programmers, as some Unix software was written with such a layout in mind) or swapping left Super and left Alt to accommodate users used to Apple keyboards.
Con Too few keys
This might be useful for typing texts, but not for programming, because of no dedicated F-keys, cursor keys and Home/End/PageUp/PageDown keys.
Con Backlighting leaks from beneath the keycaps
At certain angles, the backlighting LEDs are unobstructed, which can become an issue.
