Summary: Not sure if it is mine or if this happens with all, but during game play, keys will lock up as if constantly pressed and at other times keys will stop functioning all together. At least once to twice a day I have to reset the keyboard by unplugging it from the computer. I don't think this thing deserves even an average rating because of the bugs in the programming. If I had it to do over again..I definitely would not buy this again.
Pros: Back lit keys look painted in daylight. Look good in the dark. Rubberized keys feel good. Standard layout of ins,del,home,del,pu,pd is appreciated! Slim keyboard is nice. Custom macros for any key. Minimalist layout is great. Good rubber feet.
Cons: Keypress springback is weak. Palm rest feels cheap. Touch sensitive multimedia keys locked into 4 predetermined players. No blink feedback on mm keys. No brightness control. Who the hell uses WASD lights? Risers on back too low & lack rubber feet.
"Great feel but only for touch-typers (keys unreadable)"

Pros: Solid and stable, yet has a small form factor. Keys are very responsive.
Cons: WIthout backlight, one cannot read the keys AT ALL. With backlight, you can read some keys, in the dark (not in daylight). Backlight in general is not nearly strong enough to make the keyboard usable for anyone but a proficient touch typer.
Summary: This Keyboard is not the greatest quality and the Driver (incl. the newest downloaded one from the server) has problems. The lights turn off every time i get some windows updates and there is no way to turn them on again without reinstalling. This does not work either most of the time and i have to try all kinds of uninstall/reinstall configurations to get it going again.
