Summary: Despite having MX Cherry Red mechanical switches which are the quietest of the lot ,I think, this keyboard makes quite a nice and distinct sound, which was what I was looking for when buying a mechanical keyboard. It also feels very nice when typing. My friend has a Cooler Master storm quick fire compact mechanical keyboard and this feels and sound very similar to that.Considering this keyboard is only £30 as well I see no reason why not to buy it All in all Positives:...
Summary: So it may not be full mechanical but still works brilliantly compared to my standard microsoft keyboard. the keys are well spaced out, gives very good feedback on the key strokes and the noise it makes when pressing keys isn't too loud or "clackity". A very very good keyboard for the price asked of it.
Summary: An okay keyboard for the price. Fairly basic mechanical keyboard, with a small, compact design. While this is good, the lack of KP_Number keys are disappointing, as I am a fan of older games that prefer this layout. Its quality was slightly disappointing, hence the lower score. After a week or two, the keys started sticking down (I don't eat near the keyboard, so my fingers aren't greasy). Then, after about 5 months of usage, I dropped a drink on it and it died.
Summary: Great mechanical keyboard. Very responsive,. People keep taking a start off because of the lack of backslash and pipe keys, which can annoy as it isn't very clear in the description they are missing. Please be aware you can access them like so on the keyboard without mapping tools ctrl+alt+# = \ ctrl+alt+shift+# = | Not terribly user friendly but it's better to have them available than struggling without them.
Summary: This keyboard is awesome, for the price especially. Not had it long but haven't got any faults with it, the switches are cherry MX red equivalents and are really nice! Only thing which i found, but not a negative (for me anyway) is that the colour which looks red on the keyboard when i got mine is pretty much orange. but as i said i didn't see this as a problem.
Summary: I bought this keyboard initially because i needed a smaller keyboard for my desk and i really wanted a mechanical keyboard. Personally I can only find 1 fault with the keyboard which is the space bar is a little wobbly and you need to press the center of the bar to make it register properly which may not be great for everyone (I had to adjust my hand positions to get it registering). Other than that, i cannot fault this keyboard.
Summary: If you are considering a mechanical keyboard and don't fancy spending close to or upwards of a hundred quid to find out if it's for you, then I can whole hardheartedly recommend this keyboard. I've used mechanical so long ago I forgot what it felt like so I opted to try this zalman board and I'm glad I did... it's true what everyone says... once you go mechanical you won't want to go back.

Summary: Been meaning to get a mechanical keyboard for some time but my budget has always been a little limited. Also I was wanting a tenkeyless board which mostly seem to come as a laptop style layout (no full nav key cluster). As an introduction to mechanical keyboards it's been great. One thing I really like with having the tenkeyless layout is it brings your hands closer together which is more comfortable when typing or playing a game.
