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.

4 years in, still going strong

Tom, Amazon
21 May 2012
  • Summary: I rarely write reviews, however after 4 years of perfect use I figured that if any product deserves a review this keyboard does. I am going to start with the bads so that this review does not seem biased. * keys are slick offering very little grip. Oil from your fingers does seem to build up on them making them incredibly slippery * after about 3 1/2 years the function button that changes between macro settings seems to bug out at times and won't work properly * the "on...

"If Batman had a (gaming) keyboard..."

blueknight06, CNET
13 March 2012
  • 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.

NO LEGS?! WHAT THE ...

Shrapnel the Indoctrinated "Xarne", Amazon
17 October 2011
  • Summary: Ok so I selected this KB for one reason- for the volume knob. The switchable numpad was a nice feature too so I figured it was win-win... Pros: Very sexy K/B. Soft touch keys for quiet typing, Red backlight under the entire keyboard Seperate Volume and Brightness controls Switchable NumPad from left or right of KB Cons: NumPad - when connected to the KB, it doesnt look like one unit, more like an aftermarket add-on. Bevels dont connect.

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
27 September 2011
  • 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.
