Damn I want one of these (the clicky version).  But am I the only one who finds Acepad's website to be incredibly confusing?  It's just a random mish-mash of every model they have--incuding older ones--with generic unhelpful descriptions.  I can never find what I want...

I know you included a direct link in the video description but it appears to be for the full-sized version and not all of us share your numpad fetish ;)

I can't make heads or tails of that website either xD .

Whats worse? Unicomps site or AcePads?

Anyway I like the sound of the clicky one. It's a bit more subdued sounding than Kailhs Clickbars. I hope they improve the tactile version, though.

Ace Pad's, easily.

Unicomp's site may be extremely barebones but at least you know what you're looking at.  The Ace Pad site on the other hand...for instance let's say that I want to buy the clicky version of their keyboard.  How do I even know if the keyboard I'm looking at is the clicky version?  I can't find that kind of information anywhere in the description.  They do have a ton of pics, which is nice, but they're not the kind of close up pics that would actually give you that kind of info either.  They had quite a few variants listed but there isn't any sort of organization to them and for some of them I don't even know what the difference is.

I had actually tried to use their site in the past too and eventually gave up.  Chyros' review just reminded me that I would like to try one of these out sometime.  But here I am, a willing customer trying to give them money and I'm thwarted by their awful website...
