Very Nice Keyboard - Price is perfect.

Summary: I bought this keyboard looking for a gaming keyboard with an affordable pricetag. This fit the bill, but fell a little short in terms of what I was expecting due to the aforementioned cons.
Pros: Very big, stable keyboard with plenty of options. Completely customizable and mappable keys and macros will make your hands comfortable no matter where you want them. The illumination is quite nice too, though it could stand to be just a little bit brighter.
Cons: USB connection only prevents it from having true "superior" ghosting. Had I known that, I would have moved up the extra $10-20 for one that had a PS/2 port. Also, the raised bumps for the "W" key aren't really that easy to find, so moving back to "home" when gaming isn't that easy. The keys all feel very similar so it's easy to be off from where you're supposed to be.
Pros: Solid gaming keyboard. Lots of extra buttons for macros. 6-key anti-ghosting is probably the most anyone would ever need. Soft-but-visible backlighting. At $40 on sale, was definitely a great buy.
Cons: Not much to speak of, other than the space bar began squeaking almost immediately after I got it. Nothing some oil can't fix. Still, the fact that it practically came out of the box with a squeaky key (And is one of the most used keys) bugs me enough to take away an egg.

Summary: Purchased this recently, after using it for a little over 2 months now I can say I thoroughly enjoy it. The keys are not as high as on a normal keyboard and remind me of a laptop's keyboard but more responsive. I've not used the macros but I am aware of them and the software that goes with the keyboard is lightweight and appears quite functional.
Summary: I got this on offer and I'm pretty happy with it. You will need to update the firmware on the keyboard to get it to work correctly. It only worked as a standard keyboard until it was updated. The keys are somewhere between a laptop keyboard and a standard keyboard for touch. The keys themselves are pretty flat and sometimes I get a bit lost to where I am.
Excerpt: Jeg kjøpte dette tastaturet fordi jeg fikk et gavekort, og jeg trengte et nytt tastatur. Fra første stund så skjønte jeg at dette tastaturet var av kvalitet på øverste hylle. Innpakningen var solid og stilig designet. Jeg åpnet boksen og skjønte at jeg hadde gjort et godt kjøp!
Den første tingen man legger merke til med tastaturet er at det er veldig stort. Tastaturet er over en halv meter langt!
Summary: Клавиатура собрана качественно, выглядит дорого и красиво. Ставлю 4 балла за левый ряд кнопок.
Pros: Плавный и чёткий ход клавиш. Очень радует регулировка подсветки, причём даже на максимуме не слепит и не мешает работать. Куча кнопок под макросы. Достаточно тяжелая и с резиновыми подставочками — не ерзает по столу.
Cons: Левый ряд кнопок жутко мешает. Ну никак не могу привыкнуть уже неделю, левый мизинец так и долбит вместо crl кнопку макроса. Может быть привыкну со временем, но крайне неудобно печатать.
