4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Solid, sturdy, long life, slim keys, good back light. Better than the average keyboard. Good price - at the time.

Cons: A couple years later, now this much?! At the end of it's life, keys start getting stuck. I've taken it completely apart down to the membrane, sensor board and splash shield and cleaned it thoroughly with compressed air and alcohol wipes yet it still getting stuck. I've also rubbed the paint off the keys at this point, but that's typical.

I was going to give it 5 eggs, but the price is outrageous. It's better than the average keyboard, but it's not a deity of keyboards either. $100 would be the high end of a fair price.

Other Thoughts: If you're willing to spend the price for a top-of-the line processor on a keyboard, it won't let you down - for a while.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Nice

Pros: Affordable for what it is
hot-keys
back-lighting
sleek looking
comfortable

Cons: nothing comes to mind

Other Thoughts: I purchased this laptop for a second PC in our house. I had been using the Logitech G110 and after buying this keyboard I kind of wish I had bought it for myself. This thing just looks a lot better in person. don't hesitate to buy it if you're already considering it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great for gaming and regular use

Pros: Comfortable to use

Macro keys are easy to assign, either to key combinations or to applications through the software

Brightness of backlit keys is easily adjustable/turned off

Media keys work with just about every program I've used

Absolutely no ghosting

The calculator key is actually really nice as a science student

Cons: Wrist rest does not detatch

Media keys do not work while the current window is OpenOffice or Libreoffice. This is the ONLY program I've every had to alt tab to change the volume/skip a song. It even works through games.

Other Thoughts: I decided to go with this over a more expensive mechanical keyboard. At the sale price I got it at, I figured it could last me for a long time. Maybe it isn't as comfortable as a mechanical keyboard, but it is well equipped with features. and is just nice to use. I may well stick with Microsoft components over Razer or Logitech in the future.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Purchase

Pros: Sleek design and comfortable to use for gaming

Cons: Not the best for extended typing but this should be expected from this type of design...barely a con.

It'd be nice to have the macro keys programmable as simply additional keys for mic presses.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I have enjoyed my use of this product.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh, its ok.

Pros: Key Illumination
Lots of macros
Looks sharp

Cons: Hard to clean and keep clean
Not comfortable
Key placements feel awkward

Other Thoughts: I bought this in November 2012 for $42.99. Its maybe worth the amount that I paid for it. No way worth any more than that. I am actually disappointed in it, overall. There's nothing fancy about it. I mainly bought it because of the key illumination feature.
