ES-87 Tenkeyless Mechanical Keyboard

Special Editions

Everybody get Keyed Up!

Meticulously designed from the ground up to have the utmost reliability and a clean minimalistic look; the Keyed Up Labs ES-87 keyboard's rigid construction uniquely maximizes the tactility and durability of authentic Cherry MX mechanical key switches while offering features and modern styling that appeals to power users and professionals. Whether you're a serious writer, a competitive gamer, or a jack of all trades; you can depend on the KUL ES-87.

Also, the reduced "Tenkeyless" layout of the ES-87 embraces a new-ergonomic standard by dispensing with the often unused tenkeypad and allowing operation of a pointing device nearer to the body; thereby reducing shoulder strain. Multi-OS compatibility along with modern styling and unique color options make the ES-87 an inspiring and competent addition to any home or office workstation.

It takes a serious player in the keyboard world to really impress us these days, and we will not be letting this keyboard leave the office for some time to come.

This board is what I'd expect from a company with years of experience in peripherals, the fact that this is their first product makes me excited to see what they will be producing next.
