Summary: Could not justify the $60 price when I can get a regular keyboard from work for free but for $30 I finally jumped on a backlit keyboard with Macro buttons etc... Love that its wired for gaming, love the backlights, the macros I have not used yet but its nice to have. Comfortable, everything works.
Pros: Half off on Cyber Monday, backlit, macro keys, WIRED.
Cons: Esc key takes a bit of getting used to but not enough to get rid of an egg. Little pricey IMO but if you catch it on sale, jump on it.
Summary: This is the second one I've purchased. First one was a couple years ago and I spilled milk on it....I use mechanical keyboards at home and work so this keyboard isn't really something for me personally, but my Fiancee loves it. The keys are fairly stiff for a rubber dome key mechanism, and overall the build quality is fairly high all things considered.
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.
Summary: First off, the keyboard itself looks amazing and has good build quality. The keys feel and sound good; I personally don't have anything against the glossy finish around the keys; yes, it does collect some dust and fingerprints, but so far after about a month of having it and not wiping it, it still looks great.
Summary: the keyboard works absolutely amazing.i like it. It does not make that much sounds when using, and it has all the keys you'll need, and the red light is really cool yet not that bright so it will not become a distraction.
Summary: This Microsoft keyboard was automatically recognized within windows 7 and the software to configure the buttons works great. I would recommend this for gaming as well due to the contoured W key and the back lighting that is blood red. It has S1-S6 function keys for in game play that are easily programmed. Overall I am extremely pleased with this purchase and would rank this as high as some of my higher priced keyboards.
