2 out of 5 eggsPaint does not last

Pros: When brand new it looks and works great. The keys are responsive and I like the feel.

Cons: After 8 months of use the paint where I rest my hands is gone. I am writing this review just to let people know if they spend 65+ to get ready to have a half silver keyboard.

Other Thoughts: The audio on board might be useful but I do not use it and I have it disabled.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: Solid aluminium design that will leave your attackers unconscious since that's all it's really good for...beating would be assailants.

Cons: This reversion is horrible and will cause major problems on some motherboards due to its built-in usb audio chip. Other than that, like the poster said below, the enlargement of the enter key and the size reduction of the backslash and backspace keys was an unnecessary design decision.

Other Thoughts: Rather than returning it, I decided to transplant the face plate and most of keys on to my older Enermax Kb002U-S...Minus the redesigned keys that I listed above and with a little spray paint with the use of letter stencils, it's as good as new now. Another perk is, if I decide to switch back to an all aluminium silver rig, I can just swap my old face plate back on!

1 out of 5 eggsNew revision sucks

Pros: Still better than your run of the mill keyboard.

Cons: -Terrible revision of a formerly great keyboard
-Now has the awful old DOS style key layout with the big RETURN key, tiny backspace and tiny backslash in upper row.
-Keycap material has been cheapened from the previous version
-Windows key too big; CTL, ALT and spacebar shrunk to fit it
-Enermax is introducing a new top end model. Perhaps they've cheapened the Aurora to protect/promote it?
-You probably won't like it. I sure didn't.

Other Thoughts: Enermax more or less ruined the original Aurora (KB002) when they created the new revision (KB007, or the Aurora "Premium.")

It now has the terrible old layout that some may remember from the DOS WordPerfect era, with the enlarged "Return" style [ENTER] key, the backlash key shrunk and stuck in the upper row, and the backspace key reduced to the size of a normal letter keycap (!!!) to fit it.

For most touch-typists or gamers, it's going to be a no-go. Keys aren't where you expect them to be, and you'll be hitting [ENTER] when you want [ \ ]. Enermax also enlarged the [WINDOWS] key at the expense of the [CTL] [ALT] and the spacebar,so the layout feels slightly 'off' there too. And who needs a bigger windows key?

Enermax is introducing a new top end KB, Acrylux,that appears to have the same arrangement as the old vKB002 Aurora. I think it's pretty obvious what's happening here: they've crappified the Aurora to force everyone who wants the standard layout to buy Acrylux.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Quality Keyboard

Pros: Very well constructed, quite heavy so it doesn't move, includes built in USB hub, short keystroke similar to a laptop

Cons: The backspace key is really small and in an awkward position so it takes getting used to.

Other Thoughts: I really like this keyboard and definetly recommed it, and it works really good if you want a simple keyboard even for gaming.

3 out of 5 eggsAurora 3 year review

Pros: Sleek, laptop like keyboard made of aluminum. My favorite keyboard yet!

Cons: Rubber key spring mechanism is flawed. Random keys may stop springing back. 3 year old keyboard and my F key failed (had to replace the rubber with an unused key) and my space bar is now starting to get sluggish and sticky.

Other Thoughts: Enermax should include a 5pack of rubber springs. Marginal cost is very small yet would increase the products life adn customer retention.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

Pros: Very elegant design. Excellent construction of the frame, brushed metal, great feel.

Cons: After owning/ using this keyboard for awhile, the "z" and "s" keys began requiring 3 or 4 presses to register. I attempted to clean with solution. When I removed the keys to clean, i discovered the scissor mechanism that enables key presses is made from a very flimsy looking plastic. It had already worn out on my keyboard, and i am by no means an extreme typer!!!.

Other Thoughts: I contacted Enermax support and was curtly informed that my product was out of warranty. Very disappointing experience for such an expensive keyboard. Don't think you are buying a built-to-last product just because you are paying a premium price. I now have a very nice looking, totally useless keyboard. Enermax is apparently unwilling to stand behind their products. So, now i am either going to buy a cheap keyboard, or look for a manufacturer with a good warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsGood solid keyboard

Pros: Solid feel, heavy enough to not slide around on my desk.
Well spaced keys even for big hands. Good keystroke feel and response. Looks beautiful. Found it to be very dependable even after a solid year of both working and gaming on this thing (can still clearly read WSAD keys too).

Cons: Wish this model was available with back lighting. Not programmable. USB ports don't provide enough power for larger devices.

Other Thoughts: I really like this keybarod. Most dependable one I have ever owned. Used every day for over a year and looks brand new.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Greatest Ever!

Pros: I've been using it for more than 3 years at a very heavy load. No problems so far. I even spilled some liquids, but it has revived. I am truly in love with it. I had written a review before and thought I'd come back to confirm my satisfaction after such a long time of unquestionable service. The letters are still intact! Amazing!

Cons: None what so ever!

1 out of 5 eggsStuck repeating key

Pros: - Very nice looking. Great aluminum base, weighty.
- Keys feel very good. Very similar to laptop.

Cons: - After one day of use, "n" key is stuck. Even now as I'm typing out this review it's randomly inserting n's... lol. This is ridiculous.

Other Thoughts: If it weren't for the stuck key, I would have given this a 5-star easily. It looks great, feels great, even the onboard audio set up ain't bad. Oh and it's got 2 USB 2.0 ports.

But a stuck key renders it utterly trash.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Value Customer,

1 out of 5 eggsEnermax RMA = Returned Malfunction

Pros: The original worked for a year, when they first started making them. I thought things were supposed to get better with age.

See my other review below.

Cons: I wrote a previous review about troubles I was having that others have previously mentioned here. I returned my Keyboard via RMA and received a new one. The new one a stuck U key which every time I put it in a type box it starts typing Uuuuuuuuuuuuu then it stops, I think its working again, then starts. It then types "You got jacked" haha

Enermax graced me with their RMA experience, after I wrote a negative view on Newegg. Well, I ate the spew, hook line and sinker. They slowly shipped me back another keyboard which guess what? Is broken more then the one I sent them. Probably someone elses RMA that someone put in a new box and sent me.

Other Thoughts: p.s. I typed this review on my 12 dollar Target keyboard. Which is obviously working more than the Enermax one. I don't get it. I know this though, Enermax should sent 12 dollar Target keyboards for RMA situations since their own product can't seem to work. I don't get it, both are made in China, I guess the Target slave kids can make better keyboards than the enermax ones. Talk about a losing team!

My point: I never knew a keyboard could cause me so much trouble. Stay away.

What am I going to do: I haven't decided yet. I don't know if I handle the excitement of waiting for a new keyboard with the hope that Enermax actually cares about the products that represent their name they put out. At least I know my brand spanking new AR15 works, and guess what? I'm all out of targets.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Value Customer,

We are sorry to hear about this issue, can you try to pull out the U key and plug back in. Sometimes the keys are stuck is because they were not place in properly. If it still does not solve the problem please contact our RMA department and we will do our best to resolve this issue for you. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Team Enermax USA
