Summary: If you're looking for a good value backlit keyboard, this is a very good alternative option to the Devastator $30 combo. If you don't need the mouse, you can save a few bucks and still get a decent cheap backlit keyboard. That's what I did.
Pros: Good value for a decent backlit keyboard. Nothing is broken.
Cons: Backlight essentially invisible in daylight.
Summary: I just put in a lot of money to build a new computer, so I wanted to go cheap for the keyboard. The D key was always a little flimsy (it would work sometimes and other times it wouldn't). After a short while, it just stopped working totally. I was carrying my team in a game of Battlefield 4 too when it stopped working, so we ended up losing the game. It also made me look like a freakin idiot when I was talking to this girl I like over Facebook that same night.
Pros: Keys have a nice/pleasant clicking sound to them that isn't loud or annoying like a lot of mechanical keyboards. This would be pretty good for a tight roommate situation.
Cons: The letter D key stopped working after 2 weeks of use. Talk about it being a gaming keyboard LOL
Summary: The keys simply get out of their place and will enter back in but won't stay there anymore. I don't know why because there was no rough handling , just normal usage. It's not expensive but it really doesn't last long. I'm not so sure about buying another one...
Pros: work fine when new, nice backlight
Cons: we pay for what we get so, this keyboard will start loosing some keys after 4 to 6 months. Mine has some scotchtape to hold some keys in place, namely the spacebar. This is why I said in the title, buy a few because you will need them all after a rather short while while
Summary: The keyboard is made fairly cheaply. The enter key only has 1 rubber piece, even though there are 2 holes and 2 spots on the circuit board for them. The only thing holding the enter key to the board physically was a small piece of plastic which broke during normal typing practices.
Pros: Compact design Orange Backlight
Cons: Dim Backlighting Delicate Enter Key (Bad for serious gamers)
Summary: I would return this keyboard but I feel like the lost time is worth more than just getting a replacement. Hopefully i-rocks can get this kind of thing sorted out.
Pros: The orange color is kind of a nice change. I also like the physical size of this keyboard; a lot of the other backlit keyboards are huge.
Cons: I really have to lean on the ] (closing bracket) key to get it to take. I haven't noticed problems with any other keys but that key gets used quite a bit in software development so it's a pretty big problem for me. The backlighting could be brighter. At arms-length, I have a hard time reading the outer rows and have resorted to adding peel-and-stick markers above the important function keys and the delete key for anchor points; with low lighting, black keys on a black...
