Worst layout ever,,,,

Ryan E., Newegg
23 April 2015
  • Summary: I would return this keyboard, but that would result in a 12.00 dollars coming back out of the 25.00 I spent... Not happy..
  • Pros: Easy to see buttons, backlit is nice.
  • Cons: This is by far the worst layout I have ever seen. It is not even usable, muscle memory is key for a keyboard. When you start moving keys from the MX1-MX5, keys in place of where the normal keys go, it completely ruins the keyboard.

Good and Bad

David D., Newegg
18 April 2015
  • Pros: looks nice. Lighting was good May have rated this higher if I could get the software to recognize the keyboard so I can't comment on macros.
  • Cons: keys felt lifeless. Incline was uncomfortable for me even with preinstalled feet. sharp bottom edge dug into my palms. Technical issue: I could not get any of the Steelseries Engine software to recognize the keyboard. Tried installing and reinstalling Engine3 and Engine2 and updated firmware but ...

Great at this price

10 March 2015
  • Summary: I managed to get this keyboard for a mere £25 or so, ridiculously cheap compared to what everywhere else is selling it for and is AMAZING! Great functionality and I love the keys as well much better than my old cheap membrane.

Clunky but works okay

Jeanette G., Newegg
8 February 2015
  • Summary: If i weren't so irked by the "low profile keys" and having to go back and delete every double space I see, i would give this 4 eggs. I've been using it for five months and these problems were present from the start. I'll probably give it away when the W starts to stick.
  • Pros: The keys all work if you press down hard enough, no problems while gaming as far as responsiveness goes.
  • Cons: "Sleek and low-profile keys" are the last words I would use to describe it. While gaming, i have no problem- but when I'm just typing regularly it's an absolute chore. The space bar is oversensitive and multiple spaces are registered. Otherwise, you have to press down on the keys harder than you ...

  • Summary: I need to pick up more milk tomorrow.
  • Pros: This keyboard is great. Good price, good feel, works for all of my games. Absolutely no issues to speak of so far.
  • Cons: Like many others have said, there are parts of the keyboard that aren't as well lit as others, but it's nothing that really bothers me. I honestly probably wouldn't have noticed it if I hadn't read it in the reviews. They are still lit & it's keys that are rarely used anyway.

24 October 2014
  • Summary: Before I bought it I was worried that it might be too large for my keyboard tray according to some measurements found on another site. It arrived a little smaller than I expected and it fits with plenty of extra room. 20"x8.5" (the foremost edge is actually 19.5")
  • Pros: Immaculate - This refurbished keyboard looks like it's brand new. Plenty of macro keys for me. Good key response for a membrane keyboard. The keypress feels shallower than an average cheapo keyboard and with lower profile keys, but they have a pretty crisp snap when pressed. Surface of the keys i...
  • Cons: None.

Very Satisfied

Angelo F., Newegg
14 October 2014
  • Summary: You can't get a gaming keyboard with macro buttons and LED lit keys for a better price ($30). The keyboard came in an unmarked black box and felt new. I expected less from a refurbished product.
  • Pros: LED lit keys Macro buttons Price
  • Cons: Not crazy about the oversized spacebar, feels different

Well worth it

Jamie A., Newegg
7 October 2014
  • Summary: The laundry detergent and body spray samples make my garbage bin smell nice; maybe ease up on that stuff, OK, guys? Also the keys are smaller than my old keyboard, so I have to adjust how I type.
  • Pros: Well designed, not very loud keystrokes, nicely backlit. It's pretty much like new for a "not new" price.
  • Cons: The M12 macro button isn't lit like the others, but whatever. Everything else is fine, except maybe the spacebar which is a bit louder than the other keys, but will surely wear down over time, so no big deal there, either.

Fantastic Gaming Keyboard

Felix D., Newegg
2 October 2014
  • Summary: Having put this keyboard through its paces for nearly a year, it's been a solid performer with all kinds of games. The keyboard is used nearly every day for Battlefield 4 play, but is also used in a range of other games (Minecraft, Batman Arkham series, Warface, Transformers Cybertron series) and...
  • Pros: Responsive keys, well lit keys, comfortable feel and weight, interchangeable feet to adjust keyboard height, long USB cord
  • Cons: Not as much "eye candy" as other boards, not a true mechanical keyboard, occasional software crashes, enhanced F-key functions can be difficult to remember and/or activate
