Summary: Overall, great keyboard. would buy again.
Pros: The keyboard works very well. I have not had issues with it so far. The LEDs are bright enough to see while not being distracting during a game. The macros works well, being in convenient places to reach while not being accidentally hit.
Cons: It is MASSIVE, at least compared to my previous keyboard. And it's not RGB, nor does it claim to be.
Summary: The software is nice and offers a good bit of customization. Keys feel deep, I have been using a shallower keyboard for the past few years so I'm not used to them yet.
Pros: Great key board for the price and seems to be brand new for a refurbish.
Cons: It just sits there and looks all pretty with it's blue lights. Dont expect any help cleaning the house or mowing the lawn from it. Sometimes while gaming, when I have to reposition my hand, my pinky that normally rests on the CTRL key lands on the bottom M key on the side which completely throws ...
Summary: I snagged this after hours of research and because the refurb was such a great price for all the features on this keyboard. I like that the lights can be turned off, and set to dim/turn off after a set time.
Pros: Ease of set up, comfort, adjustable lighting intensity, programmable keys, thumb keys, AMAZING customer service.
Pros: This keyboard is very responsive and you can hit a key very fast repeatedly. It looks great especially with my case which has blue fan lights that match the back-lit keys
Cons: The M1-5 buttons on the left are annoying because you'll find yourself accidentally hitting them when you blindly reach for ctrl or shift. You probably get used to this over time and it's not a deal breaker for me but it's something to keep in mind. Would have been a 5 otherwise.
Summary: Learning the program for programming specific keys takes a while but once you figure it out its easy.
Pros: Programmable keys are great, especially being able to set specific ms times between key press/releases. Also being able to program a key to repeat the same function over and over again really helps. Playing online games with this is much better than basic keyboard.
Cons: Key size/spacing. If you are going from a basic keyboard to this the spacing is smaller, if you have big hands you might want to think about a full sized keyboard. I had to tape a couple pennies to my CTRL key just so I would know where it was with my hand while gaming (works great like that now).
Summary: Like I said. Was really surprised it came just like retail. Have heard lots of stories of refurbished items from Newegg looking like they've been used and sometimes not even in its original packaging. Not so with this keyboard.
Pros: Really comfortable keyboard and a great look. Looks awesome next to my ROCCAT Tyon! Got it refurbished for a smoking deal ($38.99). Fifteen minutes after I bought it, the price went up to $49.99. Snuck out a deal! It came with everything as if it was new retail just with a small refurbished stick...
Cons: Nothing yet to complain about on day one. Will definitely update this review if anything changes.
Pros: Cool Design and sturdy build and keys that dont pop out or break.
Cons: Extra keys on left that make you lose place on keyboard and uncomfortable.Might be something you can get used too though. Also bigger than i expected. I thought i was buying the smaller roccat gaming keyboard without the numberpad.
Summary: This keyboard was exactly what I was looking for!! The price point was excellent and the look and feel of this keyboard is amazing!! I wanted an illuminated keyboard with some gaming functions ( as I am not a heavy gamer ), without breaking the bank and this keyboard fit the bill.
Pros: Price $39.00 Illuminated blue keys Great key spacing Very easy to type on Quiet Extra Gaming Functions
Cons: That it wasn't wireless. The multimedia keys for play, pause, volume ff, rw and web do not light up. But I don't use them much anyway.
