Great programable keyboard

Bruckley, Amazon
5 March 2013
  • Summary: Great product. Very versitile, nice touch, love the feel of the keys! More macros than can be used. I don't use for gaming, but data input. Program on the fly. Speed of macro replay through software and special keys including mouse and directional keys. This keyboard replace my 15 year old Gateway Anykey Keyboard. Very satisfied.

Good gaming keyboard

Lacheisis, Amazon
2 December 2012
  • Summary: Pros: Stylish, red and black design makes me think that this would be Darth Vader's keyboard. Backlit and comfortable keys for typing or gaming. Knobs to adjust light and volume are very nice. Removable number pad which can be transposed onto the left side to become extra macros if you need that. Can program macros on the fly and has up to 3 customizable keyboard defaults. Cons: A bit bulky and you cannot remove the wrist guard.

  • Pros: * Ergonomically different in a good way with the switching keypad., * The back-lighting is pleasant and un-obtrusive., * Quality feel and neat styling appropriate for gaming and daily work.
  • Cons: * Slightly larger dimensions than a standard keyboard., * Wrist rest is not removable., * Key feel is similar to a laptop, but not a deal-breaker.

A great keyboard.

Todd Vaden, Amazon
5 January 2012
  • Summary: I do moderate amounts of gaming on my PC and this keyboard suits my needs perfectly. I like the ability to remove the number pad to make the keyboard smaller. The action on the keys is great and gives good feedback, great for writing a paper or for gaming. The tuning knobs for the keyboard are very useful, as are the media buttons on the top. The arrow keys and the WASD keys are very comfortable to use.

Great Keyboard for CAD users

vijay krishna, Amazon
17 December 2011
  • Summary: I bought this keyboard for the macros keys and the detachable numpad. This keyboard has 30 macro keys which can be invidually configured for each software. I use CAD software and when i open the software, the keyboard software automatically loads the assigned macro profile. I addition to individual software profile, it also has three broad keyboard profile you can change by a button on the keyboard. The macro/numpad can be detached and set to left or right.

A very nice keyboard

TheCleaners, Amazon
3 October 2011
  • Summary: I am a man... who has grown up in an era of microsoft and logitech computer accessories. I cant vouch for many other brands because I havent owned many other brands. But, logitech and microsoft have always led the industry with their products. With that said, I would also like to say that I have replaced all my logitech equipment.

Works well for the price.

Mely, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: -This is a really good keyboard for the price. The glowing red/amber colors are very nice as well as useful when playing in the dark (I also like how you can control the brightness of the light with a dial). -The macro keys are easy to program and use, making this keyboard really simplistic and effective.

Nice keyboard!

G. Leitch, Amazon
31 August 2011
  • Summary: My previous keyboard was a G15 (it died) that I loved. I was very skeptacle when purchasing a MS branded keyboard having been a fan of Logitech for so long.. I'm glad I made the switch. Probably my favorite thing about this keyboard is the detatchable number pad. With my large mousepad and G13 already taking up space I didn't want a large keyboard. So being able to remove this (it has no cables) is a great feature.

Detachable Number Pad +

Bob, Amazon
5 August 2011
  • Summary: I just got mine today and the best parts of this keyboard are the detachable number pad which I only use with GTA4. It is a magnetic snap-together and cool! The next is the volume control and back lighting which are instant when your volume is high and you didn't realize it. There is no holding down a key while waiting for the volume to drop. Just rotate the knob!

Best Gaming Keyboard I have Ever Used!!

D. Calderon "Tech Geek", Amazon
8 July 2011
  • Summary: I have to say that Microsoft Sidewinder X6 has to be the best damn keyboard out there when it comes to gaming and everything else in between. I have used many keyboards over the years and this one by far blows em out the water. No sticking keys,No defective parts, every thing it advertises it can do, it can do. So if you on the fence on this product,,,,,BUY IT !!!! I now own two, one stays home and the other travels with me.
