Bought it as a gift...want one for myself now!
3 weeks ago
Summary: I bought this keyboard as gift for my boyfriend. I haven't used it personally, but from opening the package I saw that it was in excellent condition. The keys are very nice and not loud like the gaming keyboard he has now. The set up looks easy; it's just a USB cable and comes with an easy to read manual. I highly recommend this product for gamers looking for a decent keyboard.
Excerpt: For the price of this keyboard (around $30 when I bought it a year ago) you can't really expect too much, however it most definitely delivers in looks and functionality. The fact that it has dedicated media keys and not shared keys like some expensive mechanical keyboards just makes it even better. Its great to type on, but can be a bit noisy and a bit flimsy. The space bar can be pushed down from either side which is great.
Summary: I've owned this gaming keyboard for over a year now and have not hit any snags. This keyboard is an excellent value. It can be used for gaming as well as everyday tasks. I use it primarily for gaming, but also for work. Having a job where you are required to type fast with few to no mistakes means you NEED a keyboard that can deliver as advertised. This keyboard does exactly what I need.
Pros: - Shiny jet black exterior.
Cons: - Refuses to clean my house & make me dinner.
Awesome overall keyboard, but the backspace key is irritating.

Summary: Pros: keys are not as high up as some keyboards, nice size imo, keyboard is sleek with nice gloss mixed with matte look, too many pros to label individually, but I really like the LED's, macro capability, and there's a little calculator button that starts the calculator app which is cool. Cons: This is specific to me, but the backspace button was sticky. Looks like the lube for the hinge wasn't applied or was rubbed off so it is slow to press and rise.
Excerpt: I unpacked it, and just by the weight I knew it was made of quality. It has a nice feel to the keys, and a glossy finish around the outsides. The wrist rest has a kind of pattern on it, which feels nice. There are 6 macro keys, with 3 profiles giving you up to 18 macro settings.
Excerpt: The best gaming keyboard I ever had! Bad stuff: The non-blocking feature can trigger accidentally key presses. The key column to the left can by feeling alone be confused with the left most column of generic keys.
