    SEEKING:
    Razer Keypad
    - Chroma and Synapse 3.0. A must have. I color-code key mappings to remind me the keys for each game I play. Orbweaver Chroma is not Synapse 3.0 compatible, so I currently need to run two versions of Synapse simultaneously.
    - Razer Yellow switches. A must have. Even my Razer Orange switches are easily picked up by my mic. Noise suppression will take out my voice long before filtering out my key presses. I would like to try yellow switches + transparent o-rings.
    - Improved thumbstick. As it stands, the Orbweaver Chroma thumbstick is too slippery, and is awkwardly indecisive between a true D-pad and analog stick. Due to this, I end up using it only as a single button.
    - Improved ergonomics. I've heard reviews stating that the Nostromo and Tartarus have better ergonomics than the Orbweaver.


    Now, let the unfiltered list and trends tell you what they may.
    Use case: I'm a gamer, a programmer, a 3D modeler, and streamer.
    I'm not perfect, but I weighed my options with the information I could find, and made my choices.

    Each category is sorted by the date and time of addition or removal from active service.
