Caution Windows 8.1 Users

Anonymous, Newegg
5 July 2014
  • Summary: This gaming board is not mechanical, which is a neutral for me, but may be a negative for some people. The keys feel nice but they are soft presses, which is very quiet, but if one is accustomed to a mechanical board for gaming, the Shift will feel very mushy.
  • Pros: Big keyboard! If you have large hands, this keyboard will be appreciated. Nice wide wrist support, well-spaced keys, comfortable to use. The Shift is heavy, and even the much-appreciated 2 level risers have rubberised feet, so this keyboard isn't moving anywhere when gaming. Once the firmware was...
  • Cons: The software (Steelseries Engine) and firmware does not play nice with Windows 8.1. Out of the box the Shift is a decent keyboard, but you need the firmware updates and software to make use of the keyboard's primary features (the swappable key sets, macro recording, gaming profiles).

Very well built, extra keysets make for versatility.

  • Summary: First thing I experienced with this keyboard was feeling how heavy and sturdy it was- for us rigorous typers, it's a chore to have to move our keyboards back after our strokes push it away. The interchangeable keysets made this purchase very worthwhile for me(a Starcraft/WoW player).

Very nice!

Fishmonger, Amazon

  • Summary: It's a nice keyboard, and it was a VERY nice price when I got it! Don't think you can get a good keyboard for like $30. You can't. I got this for $50 (at about 50% off) and it's WELL WORTH THAT!

Keyboard works great

  • Summary: The keyboard works great. The only thing I noticed it that when using other keysets, those keysets are a little harder to get the latch to unsnap.

Good

Octavio Urquiola, Amazon

  • Summary: I received the product on time, everything was in perfect condition. It was to give it to my son, and he was very helpful. I only had problems when installing so recognizing the USB port. Maybe I can not attribute to the product as guilt, but the computer where it was installed.

Gelungen aber mit Wehrmutstropfen

micha g., Amazon
30 December 2012
  • Summary: Kann mich meinen Vorrednern nur anschließen. Alles in allem ein gelungenes Produkt für Gamer! Allerdings gibt es einen Wehrmutstropfen der mich jetzt echtes Geld kosten wird. Beim Z-Board das ich lange benutzte ( meine Frau auch ) lief die Roccat Kone und danach die Roccat Kone+ reibungslos.

Tolles Keyboard für fortgeschrittene Spieler

Andre, Amazon

  • Summary: Eine sehr gut verarbeitete Gaming-Tastatur, die allerdings vorallem mit der beigelegten Handauflage sehr klobig und groß wirkt. Die Tasten haben einen meiner Meinung nach sehr guten Druckpunkt und fühlen sich auch nach längerem Gebrauch noch wie neu an.
