5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong

Pros: Almost three years old, and it is still fully operational. Even the lettering is not wearing down.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Almost three years with a teenage user, and it is still going strong. This keyboard has outlived the original rig, and probably a half dozen mice (mouses--Meeces, whatever). I just reviewed again, because someone asked about a rugged keyboard, and I had to check my old reviews to remember the model number, and since I am right here why not an update.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent keyboard

Pros: Has all the same macro keys and control keys of a Logitech G15, without the rather useless LCD. I bought one of these after nosing around when my G15 finally died. First I bought a Microsoft Natural 4000... after about a week of using that ergonomic keyboard, my hands were hurting! I don't get what's 'ergonomic' with those things if they start hurting your hands.

So try two is this X4, much cheaper than the G15 as it lacks the useless LCD panel and keysize/layout is almost the same. Nothing new to learn between the G15 to X4.

Cons: Cons... macro buttons will not work with alternative desktop systems like KDE and such. That's kinda expected considering how hostile Microsoft is towards competitors.

Other Thoughts: I really don't do a lot of gaming these days, but it's nice to have the macro keys there for the few I do. They also work well enough for general desktop commands not already covered by the media keys.

5 out of 5 eggsHaven't had an issue yet

Pros: I bought this keyboard in 2011 and I have yet to have any issues.

Cons: The s and d key show some signs of wear but that is because I play on my computer too much.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard with tons of features

Pros: An amazing mechanical keyboard. The macros are really useful if you have a bit of knowhow with it (the demo of it aiming at a target isn't possible though). I really like the calculator button, it actually comes in handy a lot for me. It doesn't really gather that much grime, and it's safe to remove all the keys to clean it out (keyboards gets surprising dirty underneath!).
I absolutely love the clickclack of a mechanical keyboard.

Cons: clickclackclickclackclickclackclickclackclickclack

1 out of 5 eggsNot so great

Pros: Lights up

Cons: For a gaming keyboard, space bar gave out right after the year, contacted microsoft, and wanted to replace with a 39.99 wireless keyboard. Not such a great value. Now I will go with another brand of keyboard. I had bought an i-rocks keyboard, and its still standing. Better than the gaming keyboard. Also older i-rocks keyboard and do not have no issues. My suggest, go with logitech. They will take care of you, not try to cheat you by providing a cheaper item. They have always honored the price that the item is at.

Other Thoughts: Within these years, the only two items that I've purchased with the microsoft brand, have given out. And microsoft cannot take care of me. They will not take care of you either. Microsoft representative stated that this item is discontinued and they do not have any more available to replace. And also stated that twice a week someone calls for issues with the sidewinder products. That means that the product is not up to gaming standards. Invest in a company that will take care of you.

5 out of 5 eggsVery excellent keyboard!

Pros: Red illuminated lights are helpful. Drivers were easily detected, no hassle. The Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center software is easy to use. My WPM (words per minute) has improved. I dig the calculator button. Brightness feature is good. The volume mixed is really useful. The macros are easy to use, helpful when it comes to my laziness of opening websites and apps. Satisfying keyboard typing noise.

Cons: The back cord is sort of delicate. Don't bend it... The tip of the cord that is connected to my keyboard is almost half way out, but it's still usable. However, that is my fault. Other than that, no other cons.

Other Thoughts: If I cannot afford to purchase a mechanical keyboard in the future (when my sidewinder x4 decides to break), I would MOST definitively purchase this keyboard again.

4 out of 5 eggsStill works perfectly after 2 years, but keys are starting to degrade.

Pros: Functionally, this keyboard still works perfectly after 2 years of use. A solid purchase with no complaints.

Cons: The "E," "A," and "S" keys are starting to erode, meaning that the black and white paint on the keys is starting to come off, resulting in illegible clear keys. I can only assume that as time goes on, this will happen to more and more keys that are heavily used.
