Summary: They do have volume keys on this keyboard but they arent dedicated volume you have to press the fn key to use them. On my old saitek i really liked the dedicated volume buttons as well as pause play rewind fastfoward but its no big deal.
Pros: Very slim profile and will fit on a desk with limited room for a keyboard like mine is. Before this i had a saitek eclipse and it barely fit but this one is perfect.
Pros: I like how i can dim the lights, I'm not into all the bright blast your face off lighting. Keys feel better than an off the shelf major brand PC maker board. Mode F11, disables the pc control buttons while gaming. FLAT paint, easy to wipe dust off.
Cons: not enough to ding the eggs, but the FN key then F2 or F3 to turn volume up/down in games is nothing like i'm used to, always had standalone vol keys on all keyboards, even my HP branded K/B at work has a volume control button. unnecessarily long 2nd USB cable"pigtail" to plug into the USB port adjacent to the first one, unless you have to plug it in at the top and subsequent bottom of your case due to placing and whathaveyou.
"This keyboard is great for mmo gamers! its just epic!!!"
2 March 2012
Pros: The good things about this keyboard is the thumb buttons, normally when you play mmo's like wow for an example, you use the thumb to jump, with this keyboard you use your thumb to do other epic stuff then jumping around.
Cons: The bad thing is, i dont use these buttons to often so they arent to much of a deal for me, but ofc i use them sometime :D
Pros: Excellent companion to the Razer Naga mouse. Allows eight spellbars to be accessed very quickly through specialized, easily accessable, stepped row keys.
Cons: BEWARE of rushing to "UPDATE" the FIRMWARE. I updated the firmware as soon as I got the FIRST keyboard and THE KEYBOARD WAS NOT RECOGNIZED by Windows 7 Ultimate x64 EVER AGAIN. Swapped keyboard for a different one, DID NOT update the firmware and it is still working like a champ.
Pros: This keyboard is boss. Slick design and the programmable keys are great in SW:TOR for example. I fly through keyboards like crazy from button-mash raiding, SC2 and League, and this one is by far the most durable keyboard I've owned to date. the crossfading LED colors will not distract you in the slightest.
Cons: Uses up two USB ports. Not a serious con but if you have other things that need to be plugged in it might be an issue. Luckily it wasn't for me. :)
