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.
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.
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 $39.00 Illuminated blue keys Great key spacing Very easy to type on Quiet Extra Gaming Functions
Cons: That it wasn't wireless. The multimedia keys for play, pause, volume ff, rw and web do not light up. But I don't use them much anyway.
Pros: Extremely comfortable to use, key illumination is great. The software was really easy to use as well.
Cons: The "Roccat Talk" feature is only usable if you own both the keyboard AND a Roccat mouse. I would love to use that feature with my Cyborg R.A.T. 5. Also note that the device software was not included in the package, you have to download it from Roccat's website and for some reason, all the driver...
Summary: I was bummed that New Egg shipped this only in its display box - but it came through fine. Whew! I wanted a Razor keyboard to match my mouse - but the reviews were bad. Processing an RMA on a Cooler Master board - so I went with Roccat, and now I'm satisfied.
Pros: Good key feel - very responsive - slight tactile and audio feedback - reasonably quiet - slightly concave keys - adjustable backlighting - programmable macro keys - thumb macro keys - works as advertised - software is very functional (but you need to download it)
Summary: Overall excellent keyboard, i went with the isku because it was one of the only good-looking, backlit, gaming keyboards I could find for under 85$. I noticed they just discontinued this keyboard and released the Roccat isku FX version which for 25$ more, it only provides a timer and color-changing...
Pros: Looks spectacular Medium height keys Bright backlit keys Large palm rest Plenty of macros/live recording macros
Cons: Glossy finish around keys may attract fingerprints, but most of keyboard is matte plastic so I dont find myself cleaning it all to often.
