Summary: Works great, Was used a a replacement for the WoW series they did a few years back he has enjoyed it for thousands of hours, And loved it so much he wanted an exact replacement when he finally wore it out.
Its a great product. Tis a shame it is discontinued.

Summary: I've been using the keyboard for a little under a month now. I can say that the Steel Series shift keyboard works well depending on what you are wanting to do. Using it for work, if you type in the same stuff all the time, using Macros will help.
Summary: My Son requested this particular board when we built his last computer. He games and gets deep into some of them. This board was good because of the interchangeable key sets (we use the WoW set) I have seen others, and of course there is the generic set. The change takes seconds. Slide a lever on the right side and gently slide and lift. The key set folds into three sections. Installation of the next is just as simple. The keys are programmable for gaming.
Summary: i understand rubber dome keyboards arent all the rage right now for gaming (everyone seems to want mechanical) but for those of you that just never got used to the way mecha kbs feel and just love rubber dome, this IS the definitive kb for you. my ONE and only gripe is that the split spacebar is annoying. thats it.
Summary: I love the keyboard! I had the original z board but it quit working right so i ordered the new version. The only thing i didn't like was that there isn't a cross compatibility with the z board and the shift keysets, but the keyset are pretty much identical. I wish the shift board had the gaming keyset like the zboard.
Summary: I'm very picky about the keyboards I use but I couldn't afford to spend a couple hundred dollars on a new one. This one was not only priced right but was a nice addition to my system. Plugged it in, went to the website and downloaded the software for it, and it worked like a charm. You can customize the hot keys to do several different things, along with writing your own macros. And since the keyset lifts right out, it makes cleaning it a breeze also.
