Broken within a year

Paul Chua, Amazon

  • Summary: The maker claim this a Pro keyboard? They must be joking. I used it for playing D3 and the shift button simply broke into 2! And I consider myself a gentle player who doesn't take it out on the keyboard when I lose. Definitely wouldn't advise anyone to get this keyboard!

Not a good keyboard for gaming

Chris, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a terrible keyboard for gaming because it has really bad key blocking. For example, you can't press 1 while holding down shift and W. This might not sound that bad but in an fps, it means you can't switch guns while sprinting. This can also affect you in an mmo or strategy game where you need to press more than one key at once. A good keyboard for typing and other things, but definitely not a good keyboard for gaming.

Looks cool but keys are too closely placed

maven "JP", Amazon
9 October 2013
  • Summary: I have really small hands and have difficulty using a keyboard where everything is spread out. So I purchased this even though reviews told me the keys are close together. I like the way this keyboard looks and responds, but the keys really are placed WAY too close together. This is probably made for small kids only as even I think the buttons are too bunched up. This makes typing on this thing pretty difficult without making lots of mistakes.

Macro keys can't be used while other keyboard keys are pressed

MuEl, Amazon
3 October 2011
  • Summary: I don't know if any else cares, but any video game player will probably run into this problem. The 10 macro keys around the edge of the keyboard will only work if they are pressed ALONE. If you are pressing any key on the rest of the keyboard (for example W to run forward in video games) none of the Macro keys work. I contacted ThermalTake and they said this is how the keyboard was designed. This company does not understand gamers if this was how it was designed.
