Summary: this is a great keyboard easily interchangeable key sets, nice appearance extra usb ports ............................................................................................................................................
Summary: The key board is ok, but they don't support windows 8. I have the World of Warcraft key board and the special function keys don't work. I just use the generic gaming keyboard that came with the set. I like the big keys for moving around. I would not buy another one unless they upgraded the software to be compatible with windows 8.
Summary: I'm amazed at how many bad reviews this keyboard has gotten. I've used these since they came out, circa 2004. I've owned exactly 3 in that time. I ruined one myself, one I used till it was worn to the nub, and the third I'm still using now. I just bought 3 more since SteelSeries stopped producing them. I can only speak for myself, but I can't imagine going back to a standard keyboard.
Summary: At first I thought the whole keyboard could fold into a square which is perfect for work and home which I wouldnt have to transfer over and over. That was not the case. You also require a base for this keyboard which makes the whole thing thick. Spent 45$ with 3ds Max new. Pros: Great feature of switching keys and modding. Cool way of folding and storing keysets. Great looking decals Gamepad feels great and has support of major games. Cons: Very thick and clunky.
Durable, reliable, with the ability to customize it. Wonderful product.

Summary: Being a heavy gamer, I tend to buy items even when i don't need to. Such is the case with the SteelSeries Zboard. I had a nice HP keyboard, but I wanted this. First off, it weighty; exactly what I like. It doesn't feel like it will break if i press the keys to hard. The keys are silent, making little noise as I type. Built in USB ports and a long cord are a bonus.
Summary: If your a gamer you will fall in love with this keyboard. Just don't feed it your icecream! Unit arrived in perfect condition, connected without needing to download any drivers on my Windows 7 64 bit system, and was straight to work moving me about my gaming world. Keyboard quickly swapped out with minimal fuss, though I found I did need to watch that all the keys lined up proper to their matching standoffs.
Summary: This keyboard will not work with most of the games that I play. Could be cause I have windows 7 on my computer. I like the fact that you can get different keysets, but they do not sit right in the base. I also can not get my games to program to the way the keyboard is set up.
