Summary: I'm not impressed with this keyboard even considering the sale price. The thing that's taken the most adjusting are the slight differences in keyboard layout. I've found that I used the left windows key almost constantly, and after two months I still haven't adjusted to not having one. When I bought this keyboard I hoped I could remap the Steelseries key to act as a Windows key, but Windows doesn't even see the Steelseries key press.
Pros: Springy keys,, Sounds great when typing,, Long cable,, Solid keyboard construction,, Great wristrest,, Two USB ports on the keyboard
Cons: Single space backspace key, no left hand Windows key, White letters discolour quickly, and are almost impossible to clean., USB ports are v1.1, LEDs are white and too bright.
Summary: I have been debating about getting a mechanical keyboard for three years or so, and this is the one I decided to start with. Overall, it has some nice features, but it's not as functional as I expected, for gaming or for typing in general. My main complaint is that ALL of the keys feel exactly alike, with identical slope and spacing. There are also no special keycaps (like an indented CapsLock, or rounded Win key) to help you feel your way around.
Pros: -onboard USB/mic/phone sockets, -connects with a single long, braided cable, -solid
Cons: -USB hub is v1.1 only, -difficult to see at night
Summary: My 1985 built PS2 keyboard was a work of art, and still going strong. But really it looked like it belonged on the ground in the capital waste land. Wanting that IBM feel and build quality but a modern look I chose this keyboard. My PS2 keyboard was around 250 dollars new in 1985 dollars!(I got it surplus in the mid 90s ofr 10 bucks..) But still going strong 24 years later. This one will probably not last as long but cost less too.
Summary: What layout does the keyboard have? Is it the international non-us (additional key between "left s***" and "z" or is it the standard us layout? Pictures show it as international (which is what I want). Thanks for your answers.
Excerpt: Heb altijd oude of goedkope toetsenborden gehad en wilde nu eens iets degelijk in huis halen. Ik gebruik hem vooral voor tekstverwerking en speel vaak fps-games. Na tientallen keyboard-reviews gelezen te hebben viel mijn oog op de 7G van Steelseries vanwege zijn duurzaamheid, neutrale uitstraling en mechanische toetsen.
