5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

Pros: Looks great on my desk and very easy to see the keys.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these so my wife and I would have the same hardware. It doesn't remember the light setting after reboot but we both really enjoy the default blue. We would set it to blue if it defaulted to anything else.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks very nicely

Pros: BIG letters are great for people that have trouble seeing too well.
The lights are not too bright and not too dim.
Calculator button is pretty handy.

Cons: The keys are pretty soft for me but most people probably wouldn't mind.

Other Thoughts: If you know someone who can't see well, uses their keyboard in the dark and doesn't game competitively, this KB is great.

4 out of 5 eggsvery nice for the money

Pros: large type, lighted keys in multiple colors, key feel, shortcuts actually work on most computers.

Cons: no wrist rest

Other Thoughts: The included info states over one million key strokes per key reliability. And as a VERY experienced user of different keyboards this feels well built

4 out of 5 eggsGREAT KEYBOARD!

Lights Up Nicely, Keys Are Easy To Read, Azio's Excellent Customer Service.

Cons: None Of Which Are Significant Enough That Should Stop Someone From Buying It.

Other Thoughts: Just received this keyboard and I was very pleased when truing it on. The keys are very easy to see whether on or off. (I'm not visually impaired though) They have a nice feel to them and are easy to use. I thought that they might feel cheap and flimsy because of the price, but that isn't the case at all. Response of the keys is perfect. No sticking yet what so ever and they are relatively quiet.

I actually called Azio prior to making the purchase and told them I had read some reviews about the keys sticking. I was very pleased with the entire experience when dealing with them. First off, they answered the phone right away, which is unheard of these days! When I expressed my concerns about the keys sticking, there was a no-nonsense response which I also appreciated. The Rep I spoke with got straight to the point and explained they had a Tooling issue with one LOT of them in which it was off just a tad, and that caused keys to stick. Having experience with machining myself, that made perfect sense to me. The Rep stated that the problem has been corrected, and they haven't had any problems since with the 2014 batch.
HINT: (check your QC sticker on the back of your keyboard when you get it to see if it's 2014 or earlier)
He said if I found any issues, just to call them back and they would make it right with me either way.
It really seemed to be a stand up company from my experience, and that goes along way with me.

I haven't really found anything about the keyboard that is a deal-breaker for me.....
It sits a little flat even when the legs up, but that's easily corrected by placing something underneath it. The hotkeys are a little small, which is weird, but you can still see them, so I don't find it to be too much of a hassle either.

This is an EXCELLENT keyboard for $20, and is well built.
To be honest, I would have paid more for it but at $20 it is an absoulte steal! I looked at other backlit keyboards that were in the $30-$40 range and none of them seemed to be built as well. And none of them have the 3 year warranty from an American based company either. (most of the others were only a 1 year warranty, and based in Asia. now who's gonna go through all that trouble in trying to contact someone in Asia and get a problem resolved? ENOUGH SAID!) And being that this keyboard was only $20 it allowed me to buy a matching mouse with it (GM2400) which also works great. I'd post some pics, but it doesn't look like Newegg allows that. really can't go wrong with this purchase.

Hope this helps. ;)

4 out of 5 eggsQuite nice

Pros: Extra function keys, large font, attractive colors

Cons: Base feels a bit cheap. Keys just a tad spongy.

Other Thoughts: For the money this is a good illuminated board. Illumination is three colors plus off. Frame material could be a little nicer. I find the keys not as responsive as I would like (they have a deep throw), but will probably get used to them

It's nice to be able to use the computer in the dark. The display becomes clearer.

1 out of 5 eggsFailing Keys- BAD

Pros: Nice LED, Large Letters on keys, decent functionality.

Cons: Keys Stop Working. Why have a keyboard if the keys cease to function. So far I lost the number five and six (above letters), the CTRL on left side, and the hash mark. Maybe more, I'm not sure yet.

Other Thoughts: RMA sucks. I'm not spending $15 to get another $20 keyboard that will probably fail, too. This was a big waste of my money!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

Pros: Sharp looking and quality made keyboard.The illumination of the keys is dead areas at all.Key letters are large and easy to see.Key action has just the right feedback.The profile of the keys are low close to the same style as a laptop.Extra media buttons are handy and in just the right place.Very reliable for two years so far.

Cons: The negative feedback some users are giving this keyboard.

Other Thoughts: This keyboard is a pleasure to use and is great for gaming.Another nice thing is the letters will never wear off the keys.AND YES YOU CAN SHUT THE LIGHTS OFF IF YOU WANT TO.Just hold down the light switch for a few seconds and the lights go off.I've blown a lot of money on keyboards with all kinds of different gimmicks but this one I have to say is a keeper you will not be sorry if you buy this keyboard and Newegg will get it to ya fast and safe....enjoy!

1 out of 5 eggsA bad keyboard for a typist

Pros: Illuminated keys.

Cons: The 'wrist-rest' is almost as high as the top edge of the Space Bar, meaning a typist has to reach 'down' into the Keyboard 'well' to touch the space bar. This is SOOOO terrible.

Also, the CAPS LOCK LED is on the far upper right of the keyboard, not on the CapsLock key itself. This is a common and terrible attribute of most keyboards - why can't they light up the CapsLock key with that LED instead? Put it where it belongs!

Other Thoughts: Look at how your typing hands sit, and most typists' thumbs reach 'up' to tap the Space Bar. Now, imagine typing like a concert piano - wrists held high above the desktop, with thumbs reaching into the well of the typing keys for each and every Space Bar tap. That's what this keyboard requires.

1 out of 5 eggsSticky keys and durability

Pros: LED backlit.

Cons: the keys stick pretty much no matter how you strike them and it can't even last a little over a month with a two year old who likes to play with it.
