5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

Pros: Lighted keyboard and can be dimmed without the software. Plenty of Macro Keys. Easy to type, quiet and responsive. It's a great keyboard and works perfectly for FPS games. Typing feels great. One of the best keyboards I've ever used or owned.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Couple this with a SteelSeries Sensei Raw Gaming mouse and you've got one heck of a setup.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Keyboard

Pros: Upon installation of this keyboard, my eyes were attracted by the bright white LED's, which brightness is adjustable from the keyboard itself. Responsive and I do like that it has the two bumps on the "W" key to easily place your hand over WASD.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Really didn't want to consider this a con but if you are coming from a keyboard that doesn't have macro buttons, this MIGHT take some getting used to if you're like me. Sometimes I will feel for the left CTRL key and oddly enough end up placing my pinky on the MX macro keys to the left of the CTRL key. Getting used to it though...

4 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: -Comfortable
-Seems manufactured well
-Design: Very clean and simple.

Cons: -Price

Other Thoughts: Good keyboard worth buying if you have some extra cash. Probably won't buy another keyboard unless it breaks and they make one that dispenses money.

5 out of 5 eggsBest non-mech keyboard you can get

Pros: I like the soft backlight of the keys. They aren't too bright or obnoxious. Button actuation is buttery smooth, and the macro buttons feel intuitive. Volume/music controls are cleverly set up using the Steelseries button, and the keyboard software is easy to use.

While not a mechanical keyboard, the keyboard itself is solidly constructed. I prefer the smooth silence this keyboard gives me, unless I'm wailing away on one of the keys in a QTE. My previous keyboard was a mechanical, and I actually prefer this one.

Overall, a short, sturdy creature fond of game and industry.

Cons: The caps lock key could have been raised a bit to stop my sausage fingers from accidentally hitting it when I'm playing a WASD game.

Other Thoughts: While this keyboard won't make you a better gamer, you'll feel like one!
