SP-111 R2 is the brainchild of BlindAssassin111, who has spent the past few years tweaking and modifying the original SP-111’s design, then iterating on these changes until satisfied. These changes include (but are not limited to): a lower profile due to a reduction in the height of both the case and the feet, added microcontrollers on both PCBs, and RGB status indicators as well as a polycarb light pipe located on the left side of the board.
So, why a split southpaw layout? Considerations for comfort and productivity are at the core of this decision – split boards can be arranged in whatever formation the user desires, and the southpaw layout allows easy access to the numpad while simultaneously using a mouse, which is very useful for data entry jobs as well as other applications such as CAD. Furthermore, the right half of the board’s uses 1800-style arrows and a vertical nav cluster, giving the SP-111 R2 the utility of a full-size board while fitting into a smaller form factor.
