If you are looking for a board with macros like this, then in my opinion the Deck Francium Pro and Hassium Pro are pretty much the only game in town. Yes, the Vortex Pok3r and Rac3 have programming layers, but if you want a regular TKL or Full... none of the other boards around have usable macro features. There are gaming boards that have macro keys but you have to install software to record your macros. I need a simple board with no software or 5 step, two handed process to access the macro recording and playback! I and do not want a keyboard that is the size of a surfboard and looks like a stealth bomber with wide angled edges and obnoxious lime green branding.
The benefit with the Deck keyboards is that you can program with so little effort. There is no software or complicated method of accessing the recording layer. Also, the recorded macro has NO keypress delay recorded. So when pressing a programmed key it sends keystrokes instantly. If you need to add delay, that feature is available though, It is just not used by default. You can record up to 64 keystrokes and I believe (but not 100% positive) that things like CTL+S only count as one keystroke. I have made some seriously long macros and none have reached the edge of the 64 keystroke limit.
I like that you can either turn on the macro layer with the "F11" key OR you can hold PN plus your programmed key for a one off... like a shift key for macros. I have my numpad (on the Hassium Pro only) programmed with dates and phrases that I key a lot so I can just hold PN and hit the key I need with my right hand. I have tried other boards and to get to the program layer you have to use two hands to switch to that layer then hit the programmed key. Those boards also ONLY record macros with keypress delay also recorded. That drives me batty. If I record a macro and I take my time so as to not make a mistake, the playback takes just as long as it took for me to key it. Yes I am saving moving my fingers but not ANY time at all. Ducky One has the ability to change that delay but that means after each keypress you then have to press the FN+ key required to get the .02 millisecond delay. A 15 key macro now required 30 kepresses to record. UGH. The Cooler Master MasterKeys Pro M has NO way to remove the delay when recording macros. You are stuck watching your macro play back at the same speed it took you when recording OR just try recording several times typing as fast as you can until you can do it with no mistakes.
The Francium/Hassium Pro's do only have one programming layer though. So it really is best for recording combo keystroke macros. You could technically record just a few keys with a single keystroke if you wanted. Like if you wanted to make the programming layer into Dvorak or Colemak you could do that. You could also make the program layer just switch a few keys around like turn your Windows key into an Caps Lock, your Caps Lock into a Backspace and your Right Alt into Caps Lock.
The other thing is the legends on the keycaps. They have received much scorn and the font is so odd... but I love the font. For me, it is the last thing on a keycap checklist. The keycaps very thick, double shot, shine through and made from PBT. So they feel and sound great. The double shot legends are made or a translucent white plastic, real white... not like a milky cloudy clear, bright white. So if you turn the LED's off they will look like regular double shot keycaps. The downside is if you replace just the alphas or just the modifiers, the new keycaps may shine MUCH brighter than the stock keycaps. This would only matter if you mix them. I replaced the alphas and actually have come to like the brighter alphas as it helps me visually orient in darker environments. I think the keycaps are so nice you do not have to replace them unless you are someone who just likes buying keycaps all the time.
The case if plastic but still feels of excellent quality, The keyboard is not the heaviest I own, but is sturdy enough. Not being the heaviest may be a good thing if you are like me and take it back and forth to work often. Removing the case is very easy. there are no screws to remove. You use a credit card. Turn the keyboard over, slide the card along between the top and bottom until your reach a clip and gently use the card to pop the clip. Once all the clips are popped, the top will just lift off. The PCB is attached to the base with a screw. I used Krylon Fusion "Satin Almond" paint to make the case the same color as vintage keyboards and it worked out perfectly! First use very very fine sandpaper to gently rough up the surface... I used something in the 600 grit range. Then put a very light first coat, let it dry and repeat a few times until it is done. I also did very very light sanding between the first coats. After the final coat I just wiped the whole thing gently with a coffee filter. It is so beautiful. I added vintage looking keycaps to mine once I memorized all the extra functions of the keys.
Oh, that is another thing that some people whine about on the Francium Pro... the ESC is also F12. FN+ESC = F12, it is no issue for me, I quickly became accustomed to that and rarely need F12 anyway. The F11 is by default the programming layer activation key, to get an F11 you have to press the FN+F11. Again, works fine for me so no bitching here.
There is LED modes, I do not use them but they are typical and if you have used any LED keyboard before then you know what that looks like. There is only one color though, I have the blue LED on the Francium and the white LED on the Hassium.... There are no RGB version of the Deck keyboards as far as I am aware.
The case has a slight angle, but there are also feet if you prefer more incline. Just one height option, feet or no feet.
The cable is a nice braided cable and is permanently attached. The pro on that is there is no jack to break but if the cable does go bad you will need to open the case and resolder the cable.
There are three cable channels. So you can tuck the cable to it exit the left, right or rear of the board. This will also help keep the cable from straining where it meets the board and add to it's life. I like not losing the cable so this is not an issue with me. It has a nice braided cover and the USB plug is nice and sturdy
The manual says there is a utility on the Deck website that allows you to transfer macros from one Deck board to another, I looked but did not find it. I would not use it but I was curious when I read it in the manual, so I looked. It may be there but I did not find it. I did flash both of my Deck keyboards to the latest firmware on the Deck site. I do not know the version numbers, but the one I had stock when purchased was several revisions behind the one on the Deck website. I also do not know what features it added / fixed as there is no easy to find CHANGELOG.
Deck website has a Forum but it is a total mess. It is just packed to the gills with SPAM. Too bad, it would have been a decent forum. Their site does not even link to the forum any more, you can find it by searching deck Keyboard forum on google. It seems like it has been orphaned is left to rot.
Hope that helps someone who needs a keyboard with a macro feature.
The only legitimate complaint anyone has ever had about a Deck keyboard is the font they use for their key caps: it's goofy looking. But -- assuming the font doesn't bother you (or, like me, you can just live with it) -- if you do your home work on keyboards, you're probably going to end up with a Deck. I'm a fan of the Cherry Blue switches, myself. They're low resistance with a tactile and audible click.
One of the top mechanic keyboards.
