Summary: Bought this and matching mouse. Both work great and make my PC look expensive because they look expensive Pros: Most beautiful keyboard I have ever seen with striking shiny black surrounding flat gray and chrome like accents. Very solid look and feel. Great to type on. Keys click but not loudly. Volume wheel is great.
Summary: This is a pretty decent keyboard, as far as keyboards on a budget go. The keys feel good to press, and they make a very satisfying sound when you hit them and they have a solid weight to them. Its got some neat features, the hot keys are alright, and i love the media player button (back, forward, play etc) Works great with VLC and Spotify. I have some gripes but they are minor. The backspace key is only one key long as opposed to two.
Summary: I was looking for an inexpensive keyboard that met some needs. The requiremtns for me that were fullfilled - buttons for apps like calc, etc on it. - volume control - solid, not mush feeling keys It had these cons which weren't deal breakers but did have me detract from the score. - back space key only one key size, not double key size: I knew this going into it from the previous reviews.
Summary: Great keyboard, no regrets after purchase. Volume wheel is a great features that more keyboards should have. Gigabyte took a swing and hit the ball out of the park. Only issue I found was the function buttons can be a bit tricky to use and require a very hard press.
Pros: Economical, Ergonomic, Decent features for price, Volume wheel
Summary: I haven't had any problems yet and I have fat fingers. Standard QWERTY layout with number pad makes it easy to use for different types of programs. I think it looks good. You don't have to hammer the keys to get it to work, nor do the keys stick. I figure if they don't work properly, it must be user error. Not much to note here except that you should compare prices. At the time I purchased this, this vendor had a good price.
i hate the backspace key is designed as small as regular key

Summary: I I almost never use the right shift key but instead they made shift key bigger and caused the backspace key too small ... hard to small hands, or even big fingers if u cant tap in accurate position multiple times ( i.e. need to erase a few words.
