This isn’t a technical question, but this seems like a likely place to find someone with a recommendation. Short version: I’m looking for a good mechanical, cherry red keys, but with the extra buttons above the keyboard. I’d REALLY like to avoid red back lighting, if possible.

Longer version: My husband uses keyboards with the extra buttons on the left, but there’s some part of my subconscious that aligns my left hand with the left edge of the keyboard that simply will not relent. I’ve managed to go almost a week with a Logitech that had the extra keys on the side, but just had to stop because it was going so horribly. I purchased a Gigabyte Osmium (Amazon link) that’s perfect, but it has multiple issues from what is apparently not the greatest manufacturing. I RMA’d the first one I bought, spilled something on the replacement shortly after the RMA and so had to purchase another that ended up having the same issues as the first and has progressively gotten worse.

I’ve searched around but I haven’t been able to find a decent keyboard with the programmable keys at the top like the Osmium has. I’m about to the point where I’m ready to buy one without any extra keys and just get a peripheral item that has nothing but programmable keys, like this.

Anyone know of another keyboard like the Osmium?
