    Thanks for the recommendation. I had been leaving the keyboard sealed in the box so if I decided to return it to Best Buy, they could put it back on the shelf since it would indeed still be in “new” condition. But as I could not find the answers I was seeking, I pulled it out, plugged it in and I want to say that I am delighted with it. It does have the context key which I love and all the F keys are functioning as normal function keys and there is no FN key whatsoever. In Addition the G keys to the left side are set as f1 f2 f3 f4 and f5 for quick and easy access. The gaming keys are placed above the function keys and just above the numpad, there are four small keys which I believe are media keys.
The keys are only half the height of the regular mechanical keys and that works better for me since my hands are pretty small and I like the lighter touch. There is just enough click to make it nice.
It was $169 at Best Buy.

Since this is a wired keyboard I assume you are not looking for a wireless one and in this case I would highly recommend the Das Keyboard Professional 4 wired mechanical keyboard. You can get it with very tactile clicky Blue switches which to some may seem noisy, I find them just fine and very satisfying and I definitely prefer them over the Brown switches which are quieter and don't have the positive feedback.

This is a no-nonsense beautifully crafted keyboard made from aluminum with 2 USB 3.0 ports on the back, a very nice and large volume knob and basic buttons for mute, Play/Pause and rewind and forward as well as a dedicated Sleep button which is, however, very flush and hard to find at first.

What I like is the fact that it has a very traditional 104-key, IBM style keyboard layout with the 12 function keys with large gaps between F4 and F5 and F8 and F9, a very traditional 6-pack and cursor key T and that's it. No extra gaming keys and the function keys all work as they should out of the box and it's truly a plug and play keyboard with no software installation required, but it has updatable firmware.

It has a Windows key on either side of the spacebar as well as an application key and the usual tactile dot on the F and J keys. The F and J dots on my keyboards have worn off quite a bit, but you can get replacement key caps from them as well.

If anyone has experience with this keyboard, I have a couple of questions. First, does it have the context key and second, are the F keys set as function keys or as hardware keys?

Thanks for any help,

Marie
