5 out of 5 eggsGreat Gaming Keyboard!

Pros: This keyboard was seriously awesome! I used it for several years and I never had a problem with it! The macro keys weren't overly difficult to manage and program. The keyboard also comes with various degrees of a red LED backlight so you can still see your keys in the dark. This was a pro for me, but to each his own, but there are no annoying white washed WASD or arrow keys. I've seen lots of gaming keyboards with those, and at least for me, they drive me nuts. What else can I say? I used this keyboard for years and it always worked great for me till the day I had to sell my computer system!

Cons: Not really a con, but the keyboard does need to have driver software updated periodically. But then, what doesn't these days?

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Board for Cheap

Pros: This is a solid keyboard with red backlighting for relatively little cash. Also, while certainly not "silent" by any means, it is much quieter than the depth charge that is mechanical key switches.

Cons: Occasionally, I'll get a random non-response from a key press, but I think this is probably a driver issue.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: I bought that keyboard 4 years ago, dropped a few beers on it and never ran into a single problem.

Backlid

Great level of customization.

Excellent value

Cons: The software is kind of a pain in the neck.

When you stop using your macros for a few minutes, it can take up to 3-4 seconds before you get any response after pressing them!

5 out of 5 eggssolid LED backlight keyboard

Pros: nice low profile keys, not exactly silent typing, but that's not why I bought this keyboard. I've run through a few backlit keyboards before, and this is definitely the best so far. Its over 3 years old and doesn't show any real signs of wear, apart from a splotch of ketchup and where I spilled a beer one time.

I don't use the macro keys as I'm a console gaming guy, but its great to have media player controls and LED dimmer switch

Cons: I like the red led colors, but would be cool to see blue as an option

5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong!

Pros: Bought this keyboard on 9/10/2012, still using it today (7/8/2015) without issue.

Microsoft Mouse & Keyboard Center runs flawlessly in Win 7, 8.x & 10 Technical Preview.

Cons: Not dishwasher safe! ;)

Other Thoughts: Can't be beat for the price!

- adjustable backlight is really really nice to have
- although can't compete with mechanical, I really like the feel of the keys

Cons: - plastic chassis feels jenky

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 eggsnewegg you messed up the price dude

Pros: Keyboard isn't mechanical and that's why it's 30-40 bucks. However it's lasted me for over two years and the red LED has two or three settings on a specific button that toggles it. Can't complain, it isn't loud when I'm recording audio but it's good enough to be used in FPS and other PC games. I've been recommending this keyboard to all my friends who've begun building their own systems, and besides next tax return you can always splurge on a $150 keyboard later.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Very durable and lasting
