It looks cool but...

Anonymous, Newegg
28 December 2011
  • Pros: the KB looks cool when installed works like it should
  • Cons: the spacebar after use didn't feel quite right. I personally preferred the feel of a regular DELL keyboard.

OK, but not impressive

Adam S., Newegg
12 April 2010
  • Summary: Haven't tried the keyboard in full darkness, but then the light coming from the monitor would illuminate it to the point where the spotty backlighting would not be much benefit.
  • Pros: Decent keyboard, allows dimming of illumination.
  • Cons: Poor execution of back-lighting of a keyboard. Some of the LEDs were off-center and only illuminated portions of the keys (mainly the space, backspace, shift, and enter keys).

Love keyboard bad customer service

Gustavo G., Newegg
15 March 2010
  • Summary: Hit and miss with keys smudging off I think split fifty fifty so take your chance.
  • Pros: Nice back lighting 2 settings, sturdy keys, durable plastic material. Included was a detachable arm rest which I rather like. Great for late night gaming very responsive and good looking.
  • Cons: AFTER ABOUT 1 MONTH OF MODERATE USE "SHIFT" AND "D" KEY ARE SMUDGED LIKE OLDER COPIER INK ON A WHITE PAPER WHEN YOU TOUCH IT SOON AFTER IT PRINTS. : ( CALLED CUSTOMER SERVICE NO RESOLUTION AS OF YET REP STATES "WILL SEND REPLACEMENT KEYS IF HE FINDS SOME" nice...................

Should Bought Something Other

John W., Newegg
28 February 2010
  • Pros: Lighted keyboard is pretty neat. Good price
  • Cons: Space bar is terrible, it rocks if you don't press it in its center. I don't like the feel of the keys period, they feel cheap.

User Review

Brian W., Newegg
17 January 2010
  • Summary: I probably wont buy this one again, mainly because I look at the keys a lot and Im tired of squinting to make out the letters. Though I have to admit, in terms of performance, its one of the better keyboards Ive had, nice and smooth and the size of the keys are on the small side.
  • Pros: It looks nice. If your a heavy hitter, the keys are quiet compared to most keyboards, but if someone is sleeping in the same room, you will still have to pace yourself to keep the noise down.
  • Cons: I bought three, two years ago. 1. On one the caps light died just after the return window. 2. On another, my GF, who has long finger nails wore off the lettering on half the keys... since the whole key is painted except for the actual letter, there is a lot greater chance of this happening than w...

some keys not responsive

Eric S., Newegg
3 January 2010
  • Pros: Nice basic design. Blue illuminated background and key fonts. Keystrokes are soft and dont make noise.
  • Cons: The 3, enter, and + of the keypad do not always register keystrokes after owning it for 6 months, so I am getting a new one soon.

Almost perfect

Anthony D., Newegg
13 December 2009
  • Summary: I've been using this keyboard for over two years now and it's definitely time to replace it. This keyboard was wonderful in its first year but it isn't worth a $50 investment again for me for only another year of usage.
  • Pros: - Simple, straight keyset - Keys are soft and relatively quiet - Backlight - Looks nice and matches a lot of electronics
  • Cons: - Letters started wearing off after about 6 months. I have owned this keyboard for about two years now and the S, D, and C keys are not even readable anymore. - Spacebar gets pretty loud after a few months to a year of usage. - Backlight is uneven, bright around the left side and darker around th...

Not Bad

26 July 2006
  • Summary: I paid about $40 for this keyboard on Amazon. Ordered it on Monday and shocked to find it waiting for me when I got home from work on Wednesday! First I want to point out that for $40, this is perfect. However, my first impression is that the backlighting is only adequate.

Good keyboard marred by poor materials

Jonathan Bradbury, Amazon
9 September 2005
  • Summary: I've had mine for 5 months now and initially was an excellent keyboard no problem with it, but after time keys with frequent use began sticking. The problem is the rubber dome switch pad under the keys is not up to standard of gaming use (i.e.

A good keyboard - but small and gimmicky

Adam Heslop, Amazon
3 January 2014
  • Summary: As functionality goes, this keyboard is OKAY. After using it for a month, I haven't had any technical problems and the keyboard seems sturdy enough to last. My main beef with this keyboard is that it is way too small. If you're used to small keyboards, you will probably enjoy it.
