The Knucker keyboard has a giant Enter key, but a short right Shift key. Due to the size of the Enter key, the usual location of Backslash key has been switched from above the Enter key to the left of the short right Shift key. Unless you’re a “Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing” Master, you’ll be plagued with vertical line keys for every question you wish to ask such as, “Why did Thermaltake use a big Enter key!?” Become one with the Mavis, and the Knucker will become one with you.

“I have the power of the Mavis!!!”

The keyboard does not have any illumination underneath the keys. There are no special media buttons for you to control your playlist or programmable macro keys to enter some insane combo for World of Warcraft. However, if you are one of those gamers who consistently hits the Windows key in the middle of an intense situation, only to be teleported to the desktop awaiting your fate as you alt+tab back to game, you won’t have that issue here. Thermaltake cleverly replaced the Windows key with a basic function key.

The Function key is responsible for switching the LED behind the Dragon Logo on, and off in conjunction with F12. The Function key also changes the repeat rate of a key combined with keys F1 through F4 for switching speeds. Bear in mind that changing the repeat rate only works if the keyboard is in a PS/2 slot.
