  • Conclusion: Whenever I take a new mouse or keyboard for a spin, I’m always a little bit wary, for what I’m sure are obvious reasons. Peripherals seem like a simple thing, but the fact of the matter is that you could use two keyboards that look quite similar, but feel completely different. And after having used a particular setup for a while, moving to another model is always a bit strange at first.
  • Pros: Quality construction – not creaky, LED backlight isn’t the brightest, but is more then sufficient., Not a mechanical design, but still feels fantastic., Bright red and yellow colors are unique., Included silicone key protector is a nice touch, as are the replacement WASD keys., USB port on each side of the keyboard., Windows key lock is useful for games that fail when a Windows key is pressed., Macros are easy to setup and execute., Price, at around ~$70.
  • Cons: Aesthetics are not for everyone., Misshapen macro keys are interesting, but not always ideal., User-editable macro .ini files would have been appreciated., Doesn’t quite live up to the 20 simultaneous keys promise (we found it to be 10)., Spacebar doesn’t always activate if you hit the absolute edge of the right side.

  • Summary: It seemed okay at first, but didn't work (Faulty as I tried a standard keyboard which worked) I got my money back, so thank you. Also, it came as the wrong colour, but obviously that doesn't matter now.

  • Summary: The touch controlled media panel is a little too sensitive, in fact the electormagnetic interferance from my monitor would mute or switch tracks on me at random.

Great keyboard, but be careful if you're picky.

  • Summary: Very pleased with the functionality of the keyboard itself; the product is relatively simple, compared to other 'gaming' keyboards, but it does what it needs to, and is very sturdy and comfortable, with satisfying keystrokes. The only real problem with the product isn't with the keyboard at all, but picky buyers should take care: although the product as advertised here appears to be for the v.1 keyboard with the red lighting and subtle colouration, I actually received...

Does not even deserve 1 star

George Othen, Amazon
27 August 2012
  • Summary: I insist that you do not buy this keyboard, I paid £45 for this keyboard, biggest waste of £45 ever, within 3 months keys started to become unresponsive, the backlight is pointless as it only displays fully on certain keys, the 2 USB ports on either side where nice and if you actually care about any of this assigning business then it has a few buttons for that.

  • Summary: excelente producto. el diseño es mas bonito en vivo que no en las fotos que te presentan. es un teclado bastante grande y amplio, muy comodo para cualquier cosa y con un reposa manos bastante generoso. el tacto de las teclas me ha encantado, se le nota una buena calidad. el software que viene es bastante sencillo de manejar y viene con lo indispensable para configurar las macros, memoria, tiempo, posicion.
  • Pros: grande y comodo, tacto excelente, software sencillo para configurar macros. acabados muy bonito y animaciones de luz al usar las teclas multimedia, no aportan nada pero es bonito.
  • Cons: no he tenido otro teclado iluminado antes, pero creo que podria tener una iluminacion mas potente, se echa en falta que pudiera ser graduable. el software creo que podria ser mas completo, pero cumple con su funcion sin ningun problema.

  • Excerpt: Не советую брать данную клавиатуру, есть варианты дешевле и интереснее.
  • Pros: 1. Программируемые клавиши 2. Силиконовая накладка 3. Сменные клавиши wsad 4. Подсветка 5. Прикольная сенсорная панель управления звуком
  • Cons: 1. Низкое качество пластика и сборки. Сразу после покупки пришлось переставлчть пробел, ножки которого сломались через год. Ножки сломались через полтора 2. Не всегда работает без драйверов на старых компьютерах. 3. Плохо видно кнопки без подсветки и на ярком солнце. 4. Один цвет подсветки и отсутствие регулировки яркости.

  • Excerpt: Обновление 26.11.13: сломалась одна ножка клавиши "ПРОБЕЛ". Теперь он работает только при нажатии в левую сторону и середину. Справа - просто провал. Сколько дешевых клав было, с таким никогда не сталкивался. Снижаю оценку.
  • Pros: восторг! подсветка. два юсб. кабель в тканевой оплетке. программируемые клавиши. несколько режимов. отличная идея накрыть всю клаву силиконом - всегда чисто, помыл и всё. альтернативные игровые прорезиненные клавиши.
  • Cons: дороговато
