Summary: i love my z-board. using the gaming keyboard to type in game is a bit awkward at first, but you get used to it. i use ventrilo when in game anyway, so i have very little typing to do. i used a steelseries merc stealth for about a year before i bought the z-board.
Summary: I have three primary PCs that I use, my laptop (Windows 8), gaming desktop (Windows ultimate), and my Windows 7 laptop. Each Pc has a primary purpose but if I want to game this keyboard is plugged into all of them!
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.
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.
Summary: All of the "new" gaming keyboards are little more than standard keyboards with some added bells and whistles. This keyboard has larger primary keys Q,W,E,A,S and D; which makes FPS game play easier.
Summary: I have been using this keyboard for years and love it. I use to avoid first person shooter games because I just couldn't get use to the WASD movement. My fingers would always slip off the keys and I would end up hitting the other keys and end up blowing myself up with a grenade ore something.
Summary: Except for a key sticking every now and then this has been a great product. I really don't have any experience with another gaming keyboard. However when I decided I needed one I did a lot of looking. This keyboard serves as a great gaming keyboard but as a pretty good multi-media keyboard.
Summary: I was skeptical, at first about this product. I purchased it as a bundle with the Age of Conan keyset (which included a $20 rebate so I got that keyset for free). I did this as a pre-order and the z-board came about a week before the AOC keyset.
