Excellent

wildes29, Ebay

  • Summary: Very nice Item, it is my second X6 and is excellent for gaming. It replaced another that I have had for several years and used to play the Call of Duty series games. The first was retired to the back up computer used by my grand children and still works very well.

A great keyboard that failed after 6 months.

James Adams, Amazon

  • Summary: This was an amazing keyboard for me. Great keys, good backlighting, and functional audio controls! I really enjoyed the magnetic clasp keypad! I put it on the left side so my keyboard was closer to my mouse. I loved it. Then it ceased to work after 6 months. Key clusters stopped functioning. Function keys stopped working. I replaced it with a Razer keyboard.

Awesome

  • Summary: This keeboard is awesome, I've had it for more than 3 years and it still looks and work great, I don't use all the programable keys mostly because I'm lazy to program everything but I think that is more than enough for a MMO player (WoW player for instance). I love the volume and brightness controls!.

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.

If Batman had a (gaming) keyboard...

  • Summary: If Batman had a (gaming) keyboard:
  • 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.
