These programmable models allow you to customize the buttons for gaming and other application-specific inputs. With the right one, you'll be able to get your work done quicker or take down your opponents before they get to you.

Editor's Notes

November 28, 2018:

We realize that user needs for a programmable keypad vary wildly depending on the tasks they will perform. The ideal model for gaming may not be suitable for video editing, and vice versa. For that reason we did our best to include models that represent a wide variety of different layouts.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
