    So, I want to buy myself a keypad. I noticed that their prices are pretty similar, but there are some big differences, like the Tartarus Pro being opto-mechanical, while the Orbweaver is just mechanical. So, what features does the Orbweaver Chroma have that justify a price similar to the Tartarus Pro? Just the adjustable parts? Or am I missing something?
    I am thankful in advance for any answers.

    Pretty sure you can open two browsers and do a straight comparison of the two, no?

    The clear differences are as follows:

    Thumb stick / top button / space bar button shapes and keys are different
    Palm rest is more padded on the TP, whereas on the OC it's flatter and lower profile
    Analog optical switches on TP; mechanical on OC.
    32 programmable keys on TP; 30 on OC.
    Scroll wheel on TP; no scroll wheel on OC.

    That about covers it. The TP is more or less a significantly revamped/revised Nostromo with Chroma and some newer features and an extra row of buttons. The OC takes that a step further by changing the shape and using mechanical switches.

    You're welcome.
