This is a good keyboard with some extras that don't add anything
23 March 2015
Summary: I do a lot of Cad drafting. This is a good keyboard with some extras that don't add anything. Pros: The keyboard felt good under the fingers and has a full key layout. The backlighting in and around the keys definitely helps me for key recognition and speed.
Summary: Overall great board - I would recommend it.
Pros: The red/black looks really good and the LED backlight is awesome. A lot of backlit keyboards don't have great illumination, but the Challenger does. I love the feel of the board. For a non-mech board, it rocks. It feels great. There are customization options on 10 macro keys that come in handy. Y...
Cons: It always comes unplugged. The usb connection in the back of the keyboard comes out with the slightest tug. It's only happened to me 2-3 times so far. Not a huge deal, but loses an egg. Also - the mini-fan that is included blows from what looks like the back. It's set up as most PC fans, but I th...
Summary: I believe for the money there is better keyboards out there. But it still looks cool and all. It wount let you press 3 buttons at the same time so if im running in battlefield i have to stop to change my weapon.
Summary: Over all the keyboard is growing on me. While I do not like having to look at keyboard to set my fingers, once they are set I have no problems. I have not tried swapping out the WASD keys yet, this might help alleviate that issue, at least reducing the look to a quick glance.
Pros: Solid tactile feel with subdued click noise. Laptop style KB without poor laptop ergonomics. Multiple additional features Solid gauge USB cable with braided sleeving, Length is accurate Illumination settings with KB button press Anti-Ghosting up to 4 keys in one row (e.g. ASDF) . More if varying ...
Cons: USB ports are rated to 100mA. Useful for a mouse, no other devices tested worked. Extra USB port is unnecessary. Fan is worthless, more noticeable air movement in pull than in push. (put then it looks bad). The Fan plug covers fall out once removed with a casual bump. Could not find a game in whi...
Summary: small fan blow out almost nothing, but the keyboard is very quiet and comfortable, i was thinking of going mechanical but whatever, this glows red and does what i need it to do, and the drivers for the keyboard are very cool
I like it except for the T keys can't do any of the functions I really wanted

Summary: The T keys don't really do what I want them to do. They're a little customizable but I can't do like 3 out of 4 things that I wanted to do with them so far. For example, press one of them to paste a link to a site. I can press three of them to do this though...
Summary: Just recieved my keyboard and i'm liking it alot. I love low profile keys, which is why my two options was the Tt eSports Challenger PRO or the microsoft x4 (which i decided not to buy after reading about the keys paint fading after a while). The backlight is adequate.

Summary: An amazing keyboard that I really enjoy using. The only problem and reason it isn't 5 out of 5 is that the USB cord while fully plugged in to a powered jack on my computer randomly turns off my keyboard.
