Good and Bad

Sheila K., 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 ...

Sad

jill t., Newegg

  • Summary: The anti ghosting, for me at least, is awful. Certain 3 key presses that I use OFTEN when I game do not register on this keyboard where as they did on my 10$ keyboard. They board is huge but the actual keys still feel cramped.
  • Pros: -Backlight -Customization
  • Cons: -The anti ghosting is a joke -Hand feels cramped -Keys are flat surface not concave (this could be a pro for some people)

Not up to the Steelseries standard and definitely not a gaming keyboard

M, Amazon

  • Summary: This keyboard has been a real disappointment. I have a Steelseries mouse which I really like so I thought I'd give one of their keyboards a go too but it's not even as good as the generic USB keyboard it replaced.

Dissapointed

Davis, Amazon

  • Summary: I was super excited to get the keyboard. But when I got it its just a plain keyboard with no macros. Because the macro keys are useless. Why? Well Steelseries drivers are awful. Everything works at first, but later my keyboard and mouse will stop working. So, yeah, not recommended.

  • Pros: Функциональная Красивая
  • Cons: Жёсткие клавиши, плохая регистрация нажатий Драйвера не работают на Windows 8.1

Bof

pointman, Amazon
4 December 2013
  • Summary: Cherchant un clavier rétroéclairé à moins de 80euros orienté gaming, j'ai commandé ce clavier version "raw" (une seule couleur de rétroéclairage,pas usb). Malheureusement il y a avait un problème avec la touche "s" qui a peine effleurée faisait comme si elle était appuyée en continu.

difficilement pratiquable, même avec l'habitude

Smithythe1, Amazon
17 October 2013
  • Summary: quelques avantages: il est rétro-éclairé, relativement silencieux, le logiciel est assez complet sinon évitez ce clavier, frappe imprécise, peu de retour à la pression, touches plates et assez sensibles, riche en touches macro mais ça nuit gravement à l'ergonomie, en somme il est très difficile de...

Faux anti-ghosting

Nicolas, Amazon
10 October 2013
  • Summary: Clavier de bonne qualité globale sauf que son anti-ghosting est une arnaque. Il est impossible d'utiliser la touche Alt avec deux autres touches sans que le clavier ne se bloque (Alt+S puis une pression sur Q stoppera tout mouvement).
