  1. Great, no quicksave/quickload because there is no F6/F9 key. No ALT/F4 to close a program. Those keys are there for a reason.
  2. I have personally enjoyed my cloud II headset on PC and PS4. Good build quality and sound. I wonder if the Cloud II wireless actually works correctly with PS4. My Bose QC35ii have to be attached to the controller which I don’t like. It would be nice to have a true Bluetooth option for the PS4.
  3. For anyone in a professional it capacity the keys they are ditching are integral. How often do you see someone at a full keyboard say. "I wish I had a 13 inch laptop like keyboard to work with here. I like fuction key combinations.
  4. These mini keyboards are really popular to some, but I find them completely unusable.

    Also, I would never buy a keyboard from a "gaming" brand.
