Summary: It does exactly what it's supposed to, for a reasonable price. I've owned and gamed with this keyboard for five years now and recently wore out a key. Seeing how much I mash on AWS&D, I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did. Liked it enough to purchase another one to replace it.
Pros: -Inexpensive -Volume Knob -Media Buttons
Cons: Small backspace (You get used to it though) It broke (After 5 years...)
Summary: Update - Ordered two one was bad. Attempted to do an RMA shipping label. Wanted over $18. Made no sense to pay $18 to get a replacement. Another order came in different item. Was not a new item, was very upset and decided to call asking whats going on.
Pros: Features on this keyboard are great. Very glad I purchased two.
Pros: Great keyboard. The volume knob on the top right is awesome. Going from this to a keyboard without it is the worst. I've been using this keyboard for two years. None of the letters have worn off. Pop the keys off, throw them in the dish washer, keyboard is good for another 2 years.
Cons: No backlight. Backspace is tiny. Keyboard is a little bit on the large side
Summary: Bought this back in 2010 while building my PC. Stayed strong until 2013 when I spilled water on it... After that it didn't want to work. A few months ago, I figured I'd give it another try, and lo and behold, it works just as well as the day I bought it.
Pros: Cheap Volume Control and media buttons. Keyboard LED lights match the LEDs in my PC case
Cons: Maybe its weight and size... but you get used to it rather quickly.
Summary: its the best $16 keyboard i've ever owned, if you're not using it for serious gaming, you won't be disappointed
Pros: Its a keyboard, The media buttons are handy if you're into that sort of thing. what i like about it is after 2 years there is only minimal fading on the keys, and its survived water spills twice! i've ordered 4 of these keyboards now, they're great
Cons: the usb connector seems to be slightly loose, not a huge issue unless you like having the keyboard in your lap, as even a small amount of tugging seems to disconnect them.
Summary: I bought this keyboard years ago, and have had other keyboards since. Yesterday I spilled a drink on the keyboard I had been using for a year or so and needed a replacement so pulled this old Gigabyte out of the closet.
Pros: Great build quality. Really really good value for the price. Totally has laser engraved keys.
Cons: non-standard backspace; it's amazing how it actually takes a period of adjustment for something so small.
