Great product for the price I paid 4 years ago

Andrew B., Newegg
23 November 2015
  • Summary: I bought this keyboard about 4 years ago for the sale price of $30. Multiple people I know bought it as well and loved it. This is a great keyboard but for the price I paid, not the current price of $265. I honestly don't know what the deal is with the price going up so much.
  • Pros: -Nothing has failed after almost 5 years -macros and media buttons -it has been dropped, stepped on, spilled on and in general taken a beating over the years and not a single thing broke. It will last a long time. -backlit -not mechanical, but the keys still feel nice
  • Cons: -After a while, the coating on the keys I use most (WASD) has worn off and the letters are now giant smudges. It's not a big deal to me and it's the only quality issue. -The media buttons don't work in some programs, and tend not to work when in a fullscreen application or game. -Software is not ...

SideWinder x4

Danial K., Newegg
1 November 2015
  • Summary: I'm willing to sell mine...near perfect condition... for only 50% the current asking price if you are interested.... :) hahaha
  • Pros: I purchased it at Newegg on 02-01-2013 for ~ 16.5% the current asking price as of 11/01/2015. It is still working without any issues. The customization features are nice for game play and multimedia. The price I paid for it. It has gained in value as it is now selling for $268.99.
  • Cons: It is a bit noisy. The color adjustment is bright, medium, dim off. One color only.

Solid keyboard

Chester L., Newegg
31 October 2015
  • Summary: I've been using the keyboard for about two years. The only drawback is the small esc/function keys (annoying if you use vim, or a game that uses function keys a lot). The backlight is a bit dim in good room lighting, but in the dark it's great.
  • Pros: Backlit, has macro keys Keys feel crisp compared to other non-mechanical keyboards Price (two years ago)
  • Cons: Function keys/esc are a bit small Backlight is a bit dim compared to other backlit keyboards Price (now)

Great Gaming Keyboard!

Joshua D., Newegg
24 August 2015
  • Pros: This keyboard was seriously awesome! I used it for several years and I never had a problem with it! The macro keys weren't overly difficult to manage and program. The keyboard also comes with various degrees of a red LED backlight so you can still see your keys in the dark. This was a pro for me,...
  • Cons: Not really a con, but the keyboard does need to have driver software updated periodically. But then, what doesn't these days?

solid LED backlight keyboard

Michael C., Newegg
3 August 2015
  • Pros: nice low profile keys, not exactly silent typing, but that's not why I bought this keyboard. I've run through a few backlit keyboards before, and this is definitely the best so far. Its over 3 years old and doesn't show any real signs of wear, apart from a splotch of ketchup and where I spilled a...
  • Cons: I like the red led colors, but would be cool to see blue as an option

newegg you messed up the price dude

Anonymous, Newegg
21 June 2015
  • Summary: Very durable and lasting
  • Pros: Keyboard isn't mechanical and that's why it's 30-40 bucks. However it's lasted me for over two years and the red LED has two or three settings on a specific button that toggles it. Can't complain, it isn't loud when I'm recording audio but it's good enough to be used in FPS and other PC games. I'...

Pretty Nice

Drew Q., Newegg
25 May 2015
  • Summary: I purchased this laptop for a second PC in our house. I had been using the Logitech G110 and after buying this keyboard I kind of wish I had bought it for myself. This thing just looks a lot better in person. don't hesitate to buy it if you're already considering it.
  • Pros: Affordable for what it is hot-keys back-lighting sleek looking comfortable
  • Cons: nothing comes to mind
