5 out of 5 eggsTT Keyboard

Pros: Looks great, feels solid. Nice braided cable... gimmicky fan was actually really nice to move to right hand side and blow on mouse hand which tends to get sweaty before my left hand does.

Nice dark red, matches case fans.

Price is very nice for quality, illuminated keyboard.

Cons: While I don't mind the keys at all, no where near the feel of the mech keyboards that is all the hype now. As long as that's not what you are looking for... then you will be fine.

Replacement keys, do not allow for light to show through... kind of silly?

Fan already shows signs of becoming noisy / vibrating... seemed gimmicky from the start.. so I am not completely broken hearted.

Can't control brightness of LEDs.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks... but with problems

Pros: Nice looking keyboard, you can choose pretty much any color from the spectrum, software is very simple to use compared to other keyboards I've owned (saitek). Came with a key remover and red WASD and Arrow keys which is nice. 2 USB ports is a plus also. Fan has a place to be stored ON the keyboard but out of the way.

Cons: Volume control, it does not control the overall volume for windows for me. Only the volume of whatever program I currently have open, so if i'm playing a game and want to turn down my music I have to get out of the game before I have to change the volume with my mouse anyways. Everybody who seen this keyboard thinks its great until they know that the volume keys are practically useless. I have my mouse plugged into the USB ports on it and every 15 seconds the keyboard loses power all together, the lights shut off and my mouse stops working for about 10 seconds then it goes back to normal. Its done this since I got it but if i keep the keyboard very still it will work normal. The fan is VERY VERY weak, but that's no big deal because its completely silent. Also on the back of the keyboard there are channels/cutouts made to hold the cable that connects the keyboard to my PC, they are a good idea to me but are also useless because the cable just slides out without any effort at all and that puts stress on it because it is a 90 degree connector. It is nice that the cable can be somewhat "hidden away" to make the keyboard look nicer, however since mine doesn't stay put I have to put a piece of duct tape on my keyboard, which makes it look like garbage and completely ruins the point.

Other Thoughts: I had gotten this from my girlfriend for Christmas and she had bought it from Newegg. I like almost everything about this keyboard except that it loses power or connectivity often, and the volume buttons are useless to me. I cannot give an item 5 eggs after not working properly in less that 6 months. I take away 1 egg for the volume buttons, 1 egg for the completely useless 90 degree connector and cable management idea, and 1 egg for the connectivity being poor, most likely because of the cable routing. I would have sent this in for a refund because of the volume buttons alone but since I did not buy it I would have to go through another person which makes it a hassle, also the fact that it still does work (if I keep it very still and don't press any keys too hard) delays me from taking any action. If it was not a gift I would have returned it.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: Looks good, feels crisp, neat fan attachment. Stickers!

Definitely a good deal for the price.

Cons: Back-lit keys are not very bright, and do not shine through very well when viewing them from an angle (sitting at normal position look toward keyboard in front of you). The keys glow red very well when your looking straight down over keyboard, but that's not how I sit with it, nor anyone else.

Other Thoughts: The side of the keyboard does not light up like I thought it did by the pictures I saw. The 'Tt' logo in the palm rest isn't crazy bright which is good.

The red keys that come with it to replace the black ones do now light up. They do not have the clear center insert and are just solid red plastic with white markings on the top.
