Misleading, disappointment

Bradley S., Newegg

  • Summary: Looks like their CHP001US keyboard may address most of the above... except the editing of macros, but I'm not buying another keyboard... for a little more than I paid for this one. IT has dedicated programmable keys and appears to have all the normal keys.
  • Pros: Well, once I figured out how to program them, I am able to save a few key sequences (how often do you use the scroll lock and pause/break key?) And if I really need them I can deactivate the profile.
  • Cons: Nothing in the info I read or pictures indicated that the programmable keys replace existing keys. There are 6 programmable keys, and the pictures showed 6 dots across the top (3 on each side). Since it didn't say that you could only program existing keys, I figured those dots were the "T" keys. ...

  • Summary: Just a good low cost keyboard.
  • Pros: The keyboard works great and looks awesome with my mouse. I didn't think the extra fan for the keyboard would be useful, but I do use it.
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: Not worth the price I paid for it. Buy something else.
  • Pros: Fan on keyboard to cool palm and finger. Very weak fan, but you feel it.
  • Cons: Cheap, and flimsy. The plastic material is very thing and looks aesthetically unpleasing to the eyes. The keyboard buttons are very soft to press so when gaming you may accidently press a button. Not to mention that it also ghosts after a few keys. This is not close to a real gaming keyboard besi...

Good value

David D., Newegg

  • Summary: I haven't bothered to install the software yet, so I cannot speak for the fan. It seemed somewhat gimmicky, but isn't a bother if you don't want to use it Overall, would recommend
  • Pros: Low Cost, USB Port, feels solid, visually appealing, comfortable for typing, good angle
  • Cons: No windows key on the left side. Sort of annoying if you are used to using Win+D Rather light, so it kind of feels cheap in a way

Best budget gaming keyboard

Andres C., Newegg
4 October 2012
  • Summary: I think a lot of people, including myself, are just wasting money on a lot of the supposedly pro equipment, even some of Thermaltake high-end stuff. Both this keyboard and the Thermaltake Azureus mouse can keep up easily with my Razer peripherals at half the price.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, well-built, solid feel of the keys, fan palm-cooler :). After trying out some gaming keyboards, mostly for Logitech, Razer and Microsoft, I have to say I'm quite impressed by this keyboard. Would definitely buy again.
  • Cons: The only thing I can complain about is that the icons for the on-screen display are plain ugly. Other than that I haven't experienced the stability issues others are having. Running Windows 7 with Intel Core i3 2120 here. Oh and it's not a mechanical keyboard for those people that like that.

  • Summary: Tt esports sponsers Team Prime and White-Ra. I will continue to buy Thermaltake and Tt-esports as long as they continue to support Starcraft 2 esports. MKP Hwaiting!
  • Pros: -Nice keyboard, good response time -Fan is actually a really nice addition, as it helps my sweaty hands
  • Cons: None? I don't really know that much about keyboards, to be honest. It's a well put together piece. It looks cool. I'd like if it would support a second fan, but even one fan plus a usb output is more than I could ask for in a keyboard
