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.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Keyboard

Pros: I work at home and play PC games when I'm not working, so needless to say, I use my keyboard A LOT. It still types great and feels great. It was a solid keyboard for $49.99 (2011) and still is.

Cons: The back-light (red) has alternating levels of brightness that you can choose form, but it isn't very vivid, especially when room lights are on. My "S" and "D" key is rubbing away so I can see more back-light and less letter, but that is after 3-4 years of heavy use.

There is absolutely NO REASON (no good one anyway) for this keyboard to now be posted for $256, that's insane. There are many many more (and better) options for that kind of money.

Other Thoughts: I should've gotten the X6 since it has detachable keypad (to make keyboard shorter).

4 out of 5 eggsMoves Around

Pros: Bought this board back in 2012.

This keyboard is a fantastic for the price I bough it at. The keys have yet to stick for the amount i use it. The feel is great and key responsive is on point. I have yet to use the macro keys and find it a little hard to reach if I did use them. When typing, the keys are very comfortable and soft.

My favorite thing about this board is the calculator button. With a click of a button the calculator comes right up. Lighting is great and adjustable. Wrist support is some what okay (look in cons for details) but is a good length and slope for my hands.

Has a slick/glossy black finish to the boards frame. Easy to clean and dust off.

The board is exceptionally built/solid.

All in all this is a great keyboard.

Cons: *Very hard to clean wrist support is you get grit in it.
*Stupid high price (if you're willing to spend this kind of money buy a Mech Board)
*Macro keys too far to use.
*Macro key software confusing as hell.

My biggest concern with this board is the inconsistency of the back leg grips. The left side is sturdy and does not move at all. The right hand side however, slides like its on ice. i have cleaned the rubber multiple times with alcohol. soap, and water. Probably just wore out but still.

Last but not least the price is insane. I bought mine for 5x's less than currently listed.

Other Thoughts: If this was priced at what I bought it at, I would highly recommend this board. I play a ton of high APM games and this board handles nicely. Durable, ergonomic design, suitable for gaming, and comfortable feel!
