Leopold Fc980c vs Realforce R3
« on: Mon, 27 November 2023, 07:17:50 »
Hi guys, I want a topre in my life ;)
Am I wrong getting the Leopold Fc980c (micro usb...) over the R3?
I can still cancel my order and get the R3 if there is a significant difference.

Thanks!

Main differences are lack of APC software compatibility (being able to change the actuation point, which is quite noticeable to typists) and Bluetooth vs. wired. If those aren't a big deal then no point going for the R3.

The Leopold keyboard also has an ABS space bar, but the R3 has a PBT space bar.  Most of the R3s are also factory silenced.  The Leopold is not.  Unless you really like the old school beige of the Leopold, I'd go with the Realforce R3.  If you like your key legends illegible, they both come in black with black legends.

If you recently bought a Leopold FC980C, you've likely made a significant investment, and the R3 isn't exactly budget-friendly either. It's like comparing apples to tomatoes—they have different layouts, which is the main factor in choosing between them. Do you prefer the Leopold layout or the R3's? Once you decide, your choice is pretty much made. The R3 offers some new, cool technology like APC, but if that doesn't interest you, it's not really an issue.
