Summary: So I got this keyboard for Christmas. I was really excited because it was my first mechanical keyboard and my other keyboard finally died on me after probably 10 years of use. Within the first month, the keyboard back-light would start flashing on and off and the keyboard would become unresponsive. As I use this keyboard for gaming, having it die in the middle of a game can pretty much get you killed.
Summary: You won't know effectively how much warranty you are entitled UNTIL you receive the product and check the serial number. If it has been on the store's shelf for 10 months before you get it, you effectively have a warranty of only two months. To NCIX's credit, I missed this information on the product page. My ignorance, my fault. Who could imagine manufacturer would play such a silly game with their clients.
Pros: 1- white backlit keyboard, 2- USB 3.0 hub/extension, 3- audio/head-set extension, 4- product quality sounds decent
Cons: 1- BEWARE: according to Gygabyte: "Gigabyte determines warranty based on the manufacture date.", 3- Mine has started showing bizarre behavior just two months after the purchase. Sometimes keyboards light start flashing for no apparent reason. The logo breathing light while disable keeps breathing. Now I am worried about the duration of the warranty considering the #1 note above., 3- Mechanical keyboard wasn't what I imagined. My real experience is that it's just a noi...
Summary: Ordered on March 15, 2013, received on March 18. Stopped working on March 23rd, 2013 And it was not even used every day!! Very disappointed to spend such a significant amount on a keyboard to just have it just die like this. Not sure how to return this crap as I even got rid of the box it came in... so mad with this purchase... will try to see if it can be returned via Amazon. Update March 23rd: Return process from Amazon rocks!
Summary: I have owned this keyboard for just under 4 months and now its completely useless (aka broken). It had minor glitches before the final crash where it was as if a button was held down or the LED's would flicker. But, as i was typing the other day the lights all went out and the keyboard became completely unresponsive. I have tried every possible solution to the problem that i can find.
Unreliable even after RMA (tested on 3 computers/4 operating systems)

Summary: I had high hopes for this keyboard but its reliability is dreadful. I had it for a short period of time before it first began to screw up. The first sign that something is going wrong is the back lighting flickers. It will then become completely unresponsive. The only way to fix it is to unplug it and plug it back in. It did this on 3 separate computers running fedora 17, Mac OSx, Windows 8 and Windows 7. This caused me to do the first RMA.
Solid, well-built and aesthetically pleasant keyboard.

Excerpt: I recently got this keyboard, and so far I'm very impressed with it, and so, seeing there wasn't a review already, I decided to write one, hoping to inspire others to get this beautiful piece of kit.
Summary: I got this keyboard in Febuary 2013. It was absolutely perfect until August, and then all of a sudden it died. What happened was I knocked it slightly, not even roughly, just a small knock, and suddenly when I try to use it buttons are haywire. Only about half the keys produce the coreect action, and most of the vital keys are absolutely useless, and produce undesirable combos. eg, I hit enter and within 10 seconds my computer has restarted.
Excerpt: Die Tastatur an sich ist gut. Anfänglich kam es selten dazu, dass sie vom System nicht erkannt wurde, was aber nicht der Rede Wert wäre. Allerdings gab sie nach 2 Monaten den Geist auf, es reagieren nur noch die Taste für das Wechseln der Profile sowie die Lautstärkenregelung. Unter Linux das exakt selbe Problem wie unter Windows 7. Bin enttäuscht und werde wohl nicht mehr auf Gigabyte zurückgreifen. Keine Kaufempfehlung!
Summary: Fungerade bra tills det började ryka efter 1 månads användning. Slutade att fungera samtidigt... Tur att jag var hemma annars kanske hela lägenheten hade brunnit upp... Skickar tillbaks till Netonnet i dag och hoppas på att jag får pengarna tillbaks.
