5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Keyboard for the money

Pros: For an economy gaming keyboard, this cannot be beat. I had an X6 before this, and was every bit as impressed with that. Microsoft makes a wonderful keyboard, and anti ghosting is phenomenal.

Cons: None whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: Best keyboard you can get under $50.00 in my humble opinion.

4 out of 5 eggspretty good

Pros: I got this as a gift in 2012 and at the time it was a great keyboard. The LED lights are great, the macros are fairly easy to set up, and the keys feel nice.

Cons: Unfortunately this microsoft key pretty much only runs at full capacity with microsoft programs.

The macros don't work on a lot of different programs which kind of killed it for me

The media keys only work in windows media player

and as odd as it sounds.. its a really big keyboard. I know that this tends to be the norm but there are times when I really just want to break the keyboard and glue it back together smaller haha.

Other Thoughts: It's still a really cool keyboard if you're just getting into gaming and I am sure there is a third party software somewhere to use the macros in every single game/program but all in all I just wasn't feeling this keyboard.

1 out of 5 eggsdon't waste your money

Pros: - back-light is decently bright
- media keys ( only work with windows media player )

Cons: - macros do not work on all software, neither can you record macros on any game / software
- annoying macro software ( auto-sets delays to 10)
- my keyboard had different pressure zones, meaning some keys were a lot harder to press compared to others
- the cable can get easily damaged, its not braided

Other Thoughts: If you're buying this to macro, don't waste your money on this. Macro recorder only works on some programs. This is not worth it, I've tried both typing and gaming, this keyboard is terrible.

Do yourself a favor and spend a bit more to get a decent mechanical keyboard. Or a bit less, if you're on a budget because this keyboard is not worth 50 dollars.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Solid Feel when using key strokes. I've used this for both gaming and a lot of typing / papers, performed equally well.

Been running strong for 3+ years. Highly recommend.

Cons: None I have seen.

5 out of 5 eggsEnjoying it

Pros: Back lighting levels on the keyboard, the color red. keys are lower profile.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I like how the keys sit on this keyboard, the keystrokes are quite and quick. compared to the "gaming" mechanical keyboards which just makes me feel like I am back in the early 90's.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat functioning Keyboard

Pros: Price, Functions, Mid range keystroke, Backlit, Multiple key pressing, and it's a nice looking keyboard that has a sturdy feel to it. Looks great combined with a red LED mouse. I'm surprised at how often I use the calc button.

Cons: I'm not big into using macros, but if you are, keep in mind this records the keystrokes with the exact timing that you took to record them. If you are using the macros in hopes to save time thinking that the commands will enter instantly this will not be the case.

Other Thoughts: It didn't take long to get used to after several years of using only short stroke keyboards. I don't like the long stroke of most of the mechanical "gamer" keyboards and this was a nice happy medium.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Everything works like it should and no wear on keys even though I use it everyday 4+hours a day.

Cons: Had to uninstall the drivers once or twice after a windows update as it seemed to cause and issues with the keyboard drivers.

Simple fix on uninstall and reinstall and all was back to working order but a tad annoying.
