5 out of 5 eggsOnly Microsoft product that does not crash

Pros: Backlit keys make it easy to use in low light.
Still works after a few years.

Cons: Microsoft name. (I dislike Microsoft.)

Other Thoughts: It would be nice to be able to change the color light.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful for Office Use

Pros: I purchased the Siderwinder X4 for office use. I am Site Technician at an Industrial Worksite and have to work with the same type of entries every day. The programmable keys let me save hundreds of strokes each day as I can program a key for repetitive entries and press a key or two instead of having to type the whole entry over and over. This may be a game keyboard, but for Office work, it is the best production purchase I have made to date. Thank you to the person that mentioned it in the review I read at New Egg.

Cons: Not Wireless

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Great feel, cool back light, keys are pretty smooth and spaced well.

Cons: There's an issue every now and then when the windows key gets stuck. So most of the keys turn into shortcuts. Once I mashed a bunch of keys and that turned it off, but I can't replicate it now. The only solution is a reboot. Kind of annoying.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable Keyboard

Pros: I've owned this keyboard since 2011
it's never ghosted or gone crazy on me once
This keyboard is a good price, but it lasts a while and responds great. I only recently replaced it due to it becoming a tad noisy after very heavy use for the past 3 years, I would recommend this keyboard to anyone who's looking, and of course the red glow makes it pretty.

Cons: None besides after 3 years the noise, but that was after years of heavy abuse.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this to anyone who needs a reliable keyboard

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Definitely an amazing keyboard. The backlight makes all the buttons stand out great, plus my favorite keyboard feature (calculator button). Microsoft's Mouse and Keyboard Center make this incredibly easy to set up.

Cons: It would be cool if it had A-F on the keypad for hexadecimal input... But I guess thats probably a pretty specialized request.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard

Pros: I love the way the keys feel when you press them. It's not quite a mechanical keyboard, but much better than the logitech ones I've had in the past. The scriptable keys are extremely easy to set up as well.

Cons: None at all, I absolutely love it.

Other Thoughts: For the price, I doubt you could find a better offering from any other gaming company

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent as a basic or 'gaming' keyboard

Pros: I've had this keyboard for three years now without any issues. I use it to play a variety of games, though I've not found the macro feature to be of much use in the games I've played.

It's simply a very well made keyboard that can either be as basic or advanced as you want it to be.

Cons: I've had one infrequent problem that another review of this keyboard has brought to light: occasionally the Windows key will be "stuck" electronically. For example, when this occurs, the 'C' key will open up My Computer, 'E' might open e-mail, 'L' will lock the desktop, etc.

Basically every key will register as though you've pressed the Windows key plus the key itself. I've only had this problem after coming out of a locked desktop and re-locking and unlocking the desktop has always resolved this problem.

It does NOT occur every time I lock the desktop and is quite infrequent. It never occurs any other time at all. I suspect it is an issue with Microsoft's driver, but your guess is as good as mine. An annoyance, but not even one enough to cost an egg.

Other Thoughts: This is a genuinely excellent keyboard and I'm buying myself a second one alongside a new video card just to have a keyboard without six pounds of crumbs in it.

I could clean the one I have, but it's been three years, I miss that plastic 'new keyboard' smell.
