4 out of 5 eggsKeys Wear Down a Bit

Pros: Cool rubber keys. Durable.

Cons: The SHIFT key wore down in the first few weeks, but it hasn't gotten any worse in the last 2 years.

Other Thoughts: After 2 years of constant daily use, I cannot see buying a new keyboard any time soon.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good Budget Keyboard

Pros: *Soft responsive keys*Key Removal Tool*Replacement keys for orange rubber keys*Great Software*Large*

For a rubber done keyboard its one of the best I've ever used. I replaced my LT G15 v.20 as a budget option until I can splurge on a mechanical one. For $19.99 its a fantastic product.

Cons: *Thin*Short Cable*Upbraided Cable*Unprogramble media keys*Is not Mechanical*Cannot Turn off LED Light*

The price restricts the addition of the most of the mentioned cons however this little keyboard gives a big bang for a small cost. Its a great starting out keyboard at a wonderful price. If you're looking a budget keyboard that won't give up hand craps and accepts large numbers of key presses at once this is for you.

Other Thoughts: I was really disappointing that I could not reprogram the media keys as I have this phobia of htting the power and or sleep button on accident. This thing also works as a lap keyboard as its pretty wide wich I consider a plus however some might want a narrower keyboard.

3 out of 5 eggsGood keyboard, but cheap

Pros: Incredibly affordable
Lots of multimedia keys
Textured WASD & arrow keys

Cons: Overly light and flimsy feeling
PC Power button is in an inconvenient place
A few key required extra firm presses to register
18-key rollover is a joke

Other Thoughts: I only had this keyboard for about two months. I bought it because it seemed like a good, affordable choice for a gaming keyboard, and I've bought lots of Rosewill gear in my time.

First off, I would buy this keyboard again. The sheer number of multimedia buttons, and the comfortable positioning of the keys, especially the textured keys, were exceptional. Also, for the price I paid, it was well worth it.

However, just because I'd buy it doesn't mean I'd recommend it. It makes all sorts of noise when you rest your wrists against it. It has the very noticeable creak of cheap plastic flexing against cheap plastic. All those multimedia buttons are great, except for one: the power button. Why anyone would group in a power button with multimedia/shortcut keys is beyond me.

Also, I may be completely misinterpreting key rollover(very possible), but the keyboard will not respond to more than two simultaneous key presses, let alone 18. Also, the numpad had some really rough key presses, rendering it nearly useless.

All of this is moot at this point. A friend stepped on the cable for this keyboard, and yanked it out with very little actual force, so it's a total loss, and has been replaced by a Razer BlackWidow. I might still buy another one of these as a back up, just in case.

3 out of 5 eggsAlright for the price

Pros: -Good keyboard for the money
-Gripped orange keys are nice
-Programmable keys are very useful
-Looks nice

Cons: -NO WAY OF TURNING OFF BLUE SYMBOL (Even when PC is off!) It lights up my whole room.
-Glossy finish is a fingerprint magnet.
-Space bar must be hit in the exact center or it will not register.
-Keys must be bottomed out to register.

Other Thoughts: Spend more money on a decent keyboard.

1 out of 5 eggsBright light on keyboard bad for bedroom

Pros: This is an okay keyboard functionally.

Cons: There is a very bright blue light on the keyboard that lights up my entire room. Why the heck is there a bright blue illuminated cross on the keyboard? Is this a Christian keyboard. Anyway, it keeps me up at night because it does not turn off on its on.

2 out of 5 eggsGood for price, but one major drawback

Pros: Cheap keyboard, for the price I bought it.
Fairly durable, I threw it in a cardboard box while moving with no padding.

Cons: WHY IS THERE A POWER BUTTON ON THE KEYBOARD?

Other Thoughts: I probably accidentally hit the power button while setting things down on my desk several times a week, and I graze the sleep button all the time. It's very frustrating, and AFAIK it's not rebindable through the program the drivers come with.

I have a perfectly functioning power button on my tower, hardwired to the motherboard. Why on earth would I want another one on my keyboard? Terrible design flaw.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's not bad for the price.

Pros: It's not a bad keyboard for the price, the shipping was nice and quick as always.

Cons: The keys are okay, I had an issue with the ; key, it didn't want to activate until pressing directly down on top of it, any other angle and it would not actuate. They backspace button was only key cap wide and the enter key is large, that was my only issue.

Other Thoughts: Over all not a bad keyboard for the price, programmable so that's a nice touch.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good

Pros: -Price
-multi media keys
-decent keys and well placed
newegg speed, packaging, and policies
-space bar responsive on left corner.

Cons: poor instruction manual and included software gives no way to change functions of hotkeys around the keyboard.
light weight keyboard.
-too glossy for me

Other Thoughts: Fine KB for the price and that is all that matters, I prefer larger egonomic keyboards but this standard size fits the needs. great keys though button presses are not as reponsive as other gaming keyboards of higher expense can be.
I prefer a longer backspace button and smaller enter key, so i just change forward slash into backspace and page up into forward slash through UI, as PU is redundant. Able to disable windows key. I glued anti -skid material on the underside of my keyboard and matte coating on all the top shiny plastic.

2 out of 5 eggsNormal keycap was busted.

Pros: Great price, programmable functions. Key cap puller included as well as normal keycaps to replace the orange if you don't like the different feel that those have... however...

Cons: Quite noisy to type on. The orange keys have a little weird of a texture as they are rubber coated, and have a pattern on their surface. Also, one of the replacement normal keycaps was busted, so I can't switch them all out without having an awkward "A" key that is still orange.
