60% layout backlit keyboard.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro A variety of switch options and prices
From practically all Cherry options including green and white, to cheaper, non-backlit gaterons and Matias varieties, you can get the v60 in all of them.
Pro Excellent layout
Pro Solid construction
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 Compact layout
The 60% form factor means your hands never have to depart from home row for any reason, increasing efficiency.
Pro Customisable layout
The V60 has six DIP switches on the back that allow a variety of layout customisation options, and the keyboard comes with extra keycaps reflecting those choices so that the legends can 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), swapping left Super and left Alt to accommodate users used to Apple keyboards.
Pro Backlighting has two color options
The keyboard has either green and blue or red and blue backlighting color options and can be switched on the fly.
Con Backlighting leaks from beneath the keycaps
At certain angles the backlighting LEDs are unobstructed and can be an issue in certain situations.
