Summary: It has been almost 4 years since I purchased this gaming keyboard. No letters fade out, no unresponsive keys... nothing: it keeps rocking and making my enthusiatic gaming passion go on without issues. Highly recommended!
Summary: I bought this keyboard to try and make playing games more comfortable and fun, and while it does that at the cost of having weird productive keys placement (the whole home end del key problem everyone else complains about), you're probably better off just going with a logitech g13 or other similar keypad.
Summary: Very good board. Keys are set in the right places. Three color lighted keys, just wish you set the default color. Gaming keys are set out just about right. The normal keys are easy to use. Had the Ideazon with the replaceable keysets before this one. Key placement sucked. Gaming was easy, but when you tried to type/chat, you were hunting for the right key, not with this board. Only issue is the placement of the delete key. It is dual use with number pad 1.
Summary: I really stressed over buying a new keyboard, and did extensive research first. I wanted something that I could type on (I'm in college) and would be great for gaming (I also write gaming articles). My other big problem is that I'm ambidextrous. I constantly switch hands while using the mouse. Many keyboards are definitely geared for right-handers. I wanted customization options. And finally, I wanted a lighted keyboard, but orange or red weren't really doing it for me.
Summary: I was torn between getting this keyboard, or waiting for Belkin to release their new n52te gaming keypad which is just under the cost of this keyboard. I got tired of waiting for Belkin to role out the n52te and decided on this. One word - excellent! I also have the current n52 Belkin keypad, but wanted key lighting and better feel.
Summary: I've had this keyboard for a few weeks now and everyday I love it more and more. I am quite a gamer. This keyboard makes it easier to play games where I can define keys for certain tasks.The gaming z-engine allows you to customize the entire keyboard for a variety of games. Check the Ideazon website for a list. I really enjoy the illuminated keyboard. Makes playing games in the dark quite a thrill. Right now I am partial to the blue color.
Summary: I have played Call of Duty with this keyboard for about 4 years now. It works great. I like blue and purple better than red because they are brighter. The keys are not very quiet but do not disturb me. If you game a lot with one key ("W and Shift")the rubber will wear off a little, no big deal. I use about 25/34 keys on the game pad part(some doubled like 2 "F" keys). For some reason I can not get the program with it to work with Vista 64 bit.
Summary: I am a programmer by profession and I need a standard keyboard. By night I am hardcore gamer, and I need a keyboard that will perform and give me an edge. My previous keyboard was the Ideazon MERC. The thing I liked about the MERC was that it operated well as a standard keyboard, but was still advantageous as a gaming keyboard.
