Bought it as a gift...want one for myself now!
3 July 2014
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.
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.
Without a doubt, the best keyboard I have ever owned.

Summary: I bought this keyboard back in January 2013 to replace a faulty one. Sadly the Sidewinder X4 is no longer available on Amazon but if you can find it available anywhere else I strongly recommend purchasing it. The size and length is perfect for me (large hands) and all the various function are keys placed in logical positions making them accessible and easy to reach. There is a non detachable wrist-bar rest which helps provide extra comfort.
Summary: This is a cracking keyboard for anybody not wanting to pay for a mechanical keyboard but still after something decent for gaming. The back light is nice and adjustable brightness means you can turn it down and not just on or off. The bar at the bottom is comfortable to rest your wrist on and the keyboard has thrown up no other issues too.
Summary: I purchased this keyboard 2 years ago, at that time it was around £30. I had just built myself a high spec gaming rig and needed a new keyboard as my previous one was very basic. At first the sizing of the keys took some getting used to, but that is going from a clunky cheapo keyboard to this, a well designed and technical keyboard. I have now used it for 2 years solid, heroic mode raiding in WOW for those two years (very strenuous use), FPS games, everyday use.
