Summary: Pros: -Anti ghosting -Keysets -All the keys are labeled -Useful windows/explorer keys -Good deal compared to others Cons: -Keyboard feels cheap -Bent the contact pins while trying to put in a new keyset (the standard keyset fits better than the fps keyset) -Not backlit -Software is not the best, razer and logitech have much better Eventhough this is supposed to be a gaming keyboard, I didn't feel much game in it.
Summary: First and Foremost *NO Macintosh Drivers!!!* It is bad enough not having Mac drivers, but then to omit that information so unsuspecting buyers, get caught... Disgraceful! On a PC... System hangs at boot. I keep two keyboards on this system (waste of valuable desk space). I usually end up unplugging the zboard when I boot and use the other board. Once I log into system I can then connect zboard. I am always checking for updated drivers, but this issue never goes away.
Summary: The Good: When I first heard about this board I was incredibly excited. I have been playing BF2 (Battlefield 2) for almost a year now and still continually find myself stumbling over the keys. So it was a godsend to be able to purchase something like this directly intended to help me be better at my game. The interchangable keysets for different games and applications is quite intriguing -- the first that I have seen.
Summary: I LOVED the IDEA of this keyboard, and being able to switch keysets, cause in addition to gaming on my computer, I also do video editing in PREMIERE and AFTER EFFECTS, and also work in Photoshop. I loved the Photoshop keyset and the gaming keysets- HOWEVER- the actual hardware had ISSSUUUUEEES!!!! Like for example I'd be working away and all of the sudden a key I HADNT PUSHED would be going ENDLESSLY and in order to make it stop I had to remove the whole Keyset!!
