Almost-perfect keyboard just one moderately bothersome issue

Amazon Customer, Amazon
19 February 2016
  • Summary: I bought this keyboard about two years ago and use it daily for full time 8+ hours programming and lots of evening gaming. Pros: - I love the extra ports on the keyboard (headphone/mic/USB ports) - The cable is long and durable and pretty much indestructible - The keyboard is nice to look at and I...

Good Keyboard With a Few Quirks

Nathan F., Newegg
19 September 2015
  • Pros: Adjustable lighting brightness and volume via scroll wheels is convenient. There could be a little more travel on the mute click for the volume--it would prevent accidental pressure switches. Key action quality is great when it functions normally. It makes working on non-mechanical keyboards diff...
  • Cons: Goes haywire at random times. It could suddenly go into a repeating backspace or any other key at any time. My setup requires a USB extension cable, so it's entirely possible the distance may contribute to this problem. I have tried both active and non-active extension cables with no apparent cha...

Great product, if you don't have to deal with customer support.

C. Andrews, Amazon

  • Summary: It's a great keyboard. Enough tactile feedback for casual typing but fast enough response for gaming. I love the adjustable backlight and it feels solid, though for the price it could be metal. It's at least a solid feeling plastic chassis. The design is aggressive without being overbearing.

  • Summary: Pros: Keys feel great to the touch. USB 3.0 extension port is very handy Volume and LED brightness controls are easy to use and very accessible. Very nice, large, and removable wrist rest. G keys are very nice to have especially if you listen to music while you are on your computer.

Great solid keyboard for the price

Ltin, Amazon
2 January 2015
  • Summary: Typing from my second Osmium keyboard, first one suddenly stopped responding and I sent it to Gigabyte to replace/fix. No problems whatsoever thus far. The threaded wire is extremely thick (it has 2 usb [one 2.0, one 3.0], and mic/sound plug extensions) so it was a bit annoying at first but all my...

Overall Excellent Keyboard

KG, Amazon
22 October 2014
  • Summary: Great feeling full sized keyboard. Has heft to it, so there is definitely quality here. The Cherry MX Brown switches feel great. Every key is back-lit (white back-light for MX Browns) and has a fully controllable dimmer wheel, with a volume wheel next to it.

  • Summary: Software is pretty bad. Keyboard feels great. If you want this for typing / gaming and don't mind the lack of usable software, it's a good choice.

  • Summary: Love it love it love it. I've always loved the mechanical keyboard (starting with the original IBM PC keyboard). So glad I found this guy; it makes it much less laborious to type while working.

Love this keyboard

Jeff F., Newegg
15 July 2014
  • Summary: I'm not sure why there are so many negative reviews recently I have never had a problem with this keyboard and I honestly love it. Other then the position of the macro keys I have no complaints about it. its the best keyboard I've owned and have not had the issues that the other reviewers have.
  • Pros: Mechanical Cherry MX Red keys - This was my first mechanical gaming keyboard and now I can never go back. I absolutely love these keys. Backlit keys- Has blue backlit keys that have an easy to reach brightness adjustment. Solid construction - This thing is heavy and feel like its built like a tan...
  • Cons: The Macro keys are at the very top of the keyboard and really not easy to use at all.. I have never used the macro keys as I can't hit them without taking my hand off the keyboard.. Also since i have a slide out keyboard tray the macro keys are under the table so I cant hit them even if I wanted ...
