2 out of 5 eggsWrong Keyboard Sent

Pros: Nice Back light, comfortable detachable palm rest

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Keyboard

Pros: I've had this keyboard since my first computer build, which was almost 5 years ago. Everything still works like it was new, no lights out on the backlighting, no keys sticking or not registering, still in 100% working order. I'm a gamer, and have been using this keyboard 4 or more hours almost every day since purchase. This is a long lasting, cheap keyboard.

Cons: Not mechanical, but already known before buying.

Other Thoughts: Solid keyboard for a great price.

5 out of 5 eggsBought on a whim

Pros: Very solid keyboard, The keys are quite smooth when pressed and over all the design is solid. Heck even the wrist rest can be pulled out for people with large hands to make it more comfortable.

Cons: Only downside I can see, the wrist rest piece gets pushed in easily from use, not a huge problem though.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Keyboard!

Pros: I ordered this keyboard in August of 2011 and have never had an issue! The keys feel great for gaming, typing and anything you need to do. I bought this keyboard because I am a late night gamer and couldn't see the keys to type, and the red LEDs look amazing, and give.you great visability no matter the light you have in your gaming room.

I play WoW and Counter Strike, and am very hard on my keyboards and this one.is still going strong!

Cons: I do have one issue when playing games, very occasionally my A key will stick so I run or turn in circles. I have to push hard on it and it stops. I think this is because I always drop cheetos on it, so not worthy of smashing an egg.

Other Thoughts: Overall I would buy this board again if it had the macro keys on the side. Not going to knock it for not having them though, I knew that when I bought it. Any late night gamer that doesn't want extra keys, look no further!

Pros: ok the keyboard works perfect the board itself gets 5 eggs but.,

Cons: it just rattles my cage when im looking ate this keyboard and i see on the right it says "CYBORG" with the logo JUST like my mouse Cyborg Rat 3. well when i built my new rig i got all my parts all perfect all rated 5 eggs already and i get to this and cant rate it 5 eggs because they sent me the same exact keyboard but it dont say cyborg with the logo next to it noooo. its got four red scratch like looking logo on it. BUT NOT WHAT I WANTED..

Other Thoughts: LOOK AT THE PICTURES IN THIS AND TELL ME IF YOU SEE Four red scratch like looking logos on this keyboard. ITS NOT THERE... SO SAD i was all so happy for everything i got and one thing has to go wrong everytime. but hey atleast its not a mechanical defect. operator ERROR on neweggs end or the shippers end not really sure.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Good Bang for the Buck

Pros: - Wide foot pads: Parks on flat surface and STAYS there.
- Durable key design: Withstands even 12" starting point angry typing.
- Solid cabling

Cons: - LED lighting somewhat uneven: Not all the same brightness
- Not quiet: But, you shouldn't expect that from a durable unit, anyway

Other Thoughts: This keyboard started production life as the Saitek Eclipse. MadCatz bought the company and has spent the last 3+ years slowly shuffling and rebranding the entire product line. The design, however, has not changed.
I'm typing on my Eclipse keyboard (with blue LED lighting) right now; it has survived 5 years with me. That is significant as I play synthesizers as a hobby, and I'm a heavy/aggressive typist. My original Eclipse survived 3 years at the hands of myself and my fiancee of the time, whom has a habit of rage typing.
The Eclipse is a distinctly solid and conspicuous keyboard; reasonably quick response on the keys; and, it has a couple media keys you'll probably forget about. There is a dimmer switch for the backlighting for 3 modes: off, full, and half bright.
All in all, this has been a great unit for me, rivaled only by a long discontinued Macally keyboard that used Alps keyswitches. As an example, I am keeping it in my list of replacement candidates today, despite the rabid competition.

My only concern is one one of paranoia─I don't know if MadCatz has altered the design at all, since they took over. It appears to be identical, save for branding.
