it's Not a Saitek Cyborg
29 November 2012
Summary: I can only compare this keyboard to my Saitek Cyborg Gaming Keyboard with Tri-Color Back-lighting and SteelSeries Merc Stealth by referencing reviews, and either of these gaming keyboards is better than this one, in degree and functionality. For example, this keyboard has most of its keys coated with rubber as are the special gaming keys (a,s,d,e, space and arrow keys) on the left side of the Merc Stealth.
Summary: Using Razor Marauders with my iMac. There are trade offs if you use the standard Apple Keyboard. Fn key is needed for basic volume and itunes control. Shared number pad and arrow key took me a while to get over. You can look at other gaming keyboards but at the end of the day this is the only one that will tie into Action Per Minute. That lighting system is why I didn't return in the end.
Summary: I find that the left side of the keyboard is great for an RTS gamer, however be very aware that the keyboard as a whole is very small. Like an above review posted alot of your keys are pushed together which is very strange and very uncomftorable. However the half of the board thats good, is the side of the board you actually need use for RTS's so it's not THAT bad. In the end it looks great and its a great RTS board but really thats all it should be used for.
Summary: If you have windows 8 do not buy this keyboard, at present there is no driver available and the release for it has been pushed back. When I asked razer regarding this on their facebook page their response was to delete my posts and block me from making comments on their page, fantastic customer service eh? Even if you do not have windows 8 I would still recommend to not buy this keyboard due to their customer service.
Summary: Bought one of these just before Christmas, have ended up sending it back! The keyboard is small, I mean, really small, but very well built! I previously was using a Lycosa and have gone back to this. Below is a list of my pros and cons; Pros; - Profile switching - Build quality, very very solid and heavy - Ergonomics, comfortable Cons; - Lighting is not as bright as other illuminated keyboards - Lack of numpad makes the keyboard challenging to use for anything other than...
Summary: Well, this KB was a bit of a disappointment, because the LEDs are not strong enough to really shine or the keys do not allow the light to pass in enough quantity. 2nd major issues is the overlapping of the arrow keys with the number keys, forcing you to chose using one or the other, nether both at the same time. I understand it is a KB dedicated to gaming, but I do not see this as a reason to fault it and take out one of the most basic feature of a regular KB.
Summary: Also ganz einfach um auf den Punkt zu kommen! Mit der Tastatur lässt es sich gut schreiben und spielen. Die Pfeiltasten sind in das Num-Pad integriert, was Platz spart! Die Beleuchtung fällt nicht so hell aus, wie ich es mir erhofft habe und sie hat dafür extra ein 2. USB-Kabel zwecks Stromversorgung. Bei der Microsoft x6 ist auch alles beleuchtet und wesentlich heller, die kommt ohne 2. Kabel aus.
