Doesn't work the majority of the time.

James P Meagher, Amazon

  • Summary: If you install the drivers to enable mods and programming the keyboard freezes up during Windows 7 boot and you have to insert another keyboard and uninstall the driver package to get it to even work in standard USB mode. Even in standard USB mode the keyboard freezes up upon boot up 50% of the time... Better off with the standard keyboard!

Promises much but fails to deliver! a very poor board!

  • Summary: Do yourself and your bank balance a favour as this is a crappy keyboard. The gaming key stems (wasd)are weak and break because the stems are even thinner than the one's on the typing keys, though the surface area of them is bigger. This is a huge design fault and means that when (not if) they break, you can't even swap it out for another key, nor can you buy them separately from Steelseries.
  • Pros: It switches on has 3 different coloured led's which have 3 dimmable presets, customisable keys
  • Cons: usb's not powered so are basically useless. never, ever, got microphone port to work, buggy software, rubberised cover on gaming keys comes off. gaming keys broke at 12 months, got it replaced then it broke again at 6 months!

Worst built product ever

  • Summary: If you're looking for a good gaming keyboard, keep on looking. This keyboard would be great if it decided to work. Quality is something you think would come with a $90 keyboard but I guess not.
  • Pros: Good for gaming
  • Cons: Half the keys didn't work after the first day. , LED lights didn't work correctly after first day., Collects a ton of dust.

utter crap do not buy.

Graeme, Amazon

  • Summary: Got it, and it worked for 2 months and suddenly I was unable to use my keyboard.... the z engine mod software that it uses read "mods : none " and I wouldn't ffunction. I had to delete all traces of it, reload everything an it started working for another 2 months, then it happened again. And reloading it only works so many times , because I've tried doing it since it happened a third time and it won't take.
