1 out of 5 eggsAt least it looks nice

Pros: none that i can see.

Cons: The keys need to be pressed really hard. It going to cost too much to send back. so i will chalk this up to experience and have nice paper weight.

3 out of 5 eggsPoor Caps Lock PTT capabilities

Pros: Good feeling quiet keyboard. Nice sized wrist rest.

Cons: When using Caps Lock as the PTT key, you are unable to strafe while moving forward in any FPS I tested with. Example: holding W to advanced forward, then depressing Caps Lock to speak. With W and Caps Lock pressed simulaneously the A and D keys, or any other key for that matter, no longer function.
This issue can be duplicated using Notepad. Hold Caps Lock, then hold W until the character auto advances. Pressing any other letter does not override W as it should.
Normally who cares? But those of us that use Caps Lock for PTT and play FPS' might find this annoying.

Other Thoughts: Will be returning product

4 out of 5 eggsGood key board for price but low quality

Pros: The features on this keyboard and brand are really good. with it being 50 dollars its a good buy.

Cons: the cons i have to say about this keyboard are not about actual performance. but just a complaint.

the key board looks like its poor quality tho it might not be.

the keys are hard to press (might have to wear them in)

The letters are very hard to see even with some slight light also the letters look like heat pressed stickers.. i should have gotten the led ones for an extra 20$

Other Thoughts: If your looking to just grab a cheap gaming keyboard at a good price this is a great keyboard no complaints on performance. besides my complaints which are just complaints

4 out of 5 eggsFor big hands

Pros: Liked the key sensitivity/sound/and feel when typing.

Cons: If you have small (or female) hands you will probably not be able to use this keyboard well. The spaces between the keys made it impossible for me to use voice commands while WASD so returning for other Razer keyboard.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Slim style, low profile keys.

Cons: This thing was dead out of the box.
plugged it in to several USB ports and the PC would not recognize the device. No lights... Guess no one was home... Sending it back for a refund.

5 out of 5 eggslove it

Pros: Nice keyboard I like the layout as apposed to my last keyboard. The slash is in the proper place directly above the enter key. It drives me nuts when it is not there. I was considering buying the more expensive keyboard by razer just because I absolutely love my razer mouse. I was looking at this one and i noticed that they keys did not stick way up and it was not like the old fashion keyboards with the huge keys. Nice clicking sound and very responsive keys. Also it looks awesome, kind of completes my setup.

Cons: No sticker came with it like the mouse grrr. Other than that completely happy with my purchanse

Other Thoughts: great keyboard for 50 bucks anything better would have seemed like a waste to me.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard

Pros: The palm rest is a perfect size, and the keys don't require much pressure to press. Plus it looks great.

Cons: The only con I have is that in low lighting the key labels are almost impossible to see. It would have been worth spending the extra $20 on the back lit version of this keyboard.

2 out of 5 eggsNot sure why they made this version

Pros: Sturdy, comfortable, pleasant keystroke

Cons: Can't see the markings on the keys; unless you are an expert blind typist -unlike me- you won't know which keys you're hitting. It's also big, you'll need some real estate on your desk. Also, would have liked to see rubberized palm rest.

Other Thoughts: Returning for backlit version
