Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great for when Assembly offers too much abstraction
The SuperCoder 2000 offers a simple, clean layout without fancy extra features like a numpad or media keys, enjoyed by some people.
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 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 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 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 No Caps Lock key
Con Uncomfortable for Two-handed use
While working with two hands, this keyboard is too small and key spacing is too narrow.
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 support for Mac OS X
This keyboard offers no software support for Mac OS X. It only works with Windows or Linux operating systems.
Con Backlighting leaks from beneath the keycaps
At certain angles, the backlighting LEDs are unobstructed, which can become an issue.
