Summary: All in all, i have really enjoyed this product. I love having every thing right at the touch of my fingertips. Volume and mic control, App start up, Couldn't say much about the stereo/mic pass through as i don't use it. All that being said, for $200 is this worth it? Well maybe. If you have the cash to blow then yes, but if you just need a backlit keyboard maybe look somewhere else. The price tag is hefty.
Pros: The customization is awesome. The lighting, the keyboard configuration, and the palm rests are all nice. The keys and buttons feel precise and have nice feedback .
Cons: It is heavy, and because of that if moved around alot the rubber grips on the bottom will unstick. It can also be a pain to get setup right. So once you have it in place keep it there.
Summary: this keyboard function fine for a few months till its behavior is acting odd, now the keyboards display shows garbled image in the eye, and keys not responding, lights flicker sporadically and worse all no longer able to type with it. also when i turn pc off, the keyboard stays lit like it was still on, my pc has usb power off upon shutdown, this is very odd i payed ALOT for this and expected quality but the quality wasn't there, now i want my money back i never dealt...
Pros: great, design and features rather small in size but comfortable use for gaming and word documents
Cons: dies if the thin micro ubs connectors are touched during use, hardware failure and very fragile wires mack this very nasty to use and cable management overpriced compared to better keyboard manufacture
Summary: buy something else, yes the features are awesome, but the quality is absolute garbage, it weighs a ton and is cheap build quality, the electronics in it give it the weight. DO NOT BUY THIS GARBAGE UNLESS IT"S JUST FOR SHOW!!! using it will give you nightmares.
Pros: the lighting, the macros, the eye
Cons: keys stick like crazy, it is an absolute trap for dust and hair, the mic/audio connectors are infinitely noisy they are not insulated from interference from the other wires. after you have worked the keys so many times the plastic guides start to get catchy and when you press a key it stays there till you mash it again. my $12 dollar rosewill has better quality than this thing.
Summary: This is the worest keyboard I've ever used in my life. Yes the control panel is nicely functioned, and the backlight is fancy and adjustable as advertised. BUT, it is not a good keyboard in using experience besides all the add-ons. I don't know if it's because the extreme accuracy it been setted up or I just got a defective one, but I was amazed that it sometimes miss count the bottons in certain conditions such as when I was trying to push a single button for several...
Summary: I purchased in hopes of a better FPS gaming experience as I play with the mouse keyboard combo in most games, using the arrow keys and mouse, sometimes the WASD. The keyboard is a mess to assemble, and at first felt cheap. Once assembled it is ok, except for the added palm rest that gives you the added scroll and button. It just barely snaps in and come out too easy. It needs screws like the rest of the components.
