5 out of 5 eggsExcellent keyboard

Pros: Lit keyboard is great, you can change between 3 colors with the tap of a button, and you can actually see each key and what it is in the dark, as opposed to the outline of a bunch of keys you get with some keyboards that supposedly have back lighting. Other than that, it's a perfectly fine keyboard, normal layout and controls without too much extra to where it becomes annoying. Very happy with this.

Cons: Nothing to dislike about this product.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboards at this pricepoint

Pros: I've had 4 of these for over a year now - daily use on all of them by myself, wife, and 2 kids.
Medium to heavy use by all. All keys still function like new. All lights work like new. Everyone loves the keyboard.
I game in the dark - I find light distracting so lighted keys are just great to have.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't know what all the nonsense is below in the bad reviews. Maybe a bad batch or something?
The "Cheap feel" type comments are amusing. It's not a $120 gaming keyboard folks!
I think with 4 all being heavily used over a year now with no issues is a pretty good indication that these are well worth the low price they cost.
I highly recommend these as basic lighted keyboards.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst key feel I have EVER experienced

Pros: - price

Cons: - Unbelievably cheap key feel / action
- LED does not turn off when PC does

Other Thoughts: Shocked at all the good reviews. Junk. Looks pretty, but feels like it should cost five dollars. Feels like typing on Chicklets gum glued to a Q-tip. Returned it immediately. I would advise that if you actually type on your keyboard or use it for gaming that you will be severely disappointed with this keyboard. I have a fifty dollar Saitek Eclipse II LED lit keyboard that is 7 years old and the key feel is like night and day vs this one.

5 out of 5 eggsLOVE IT !!!!!


Cons: the caps lock light is a little hard to see and it does take a little getting used too the keys are very low and all the same height so at first I had trouble determining where the key spacing was so when typing I would miss keys or have errors but now that I am used too it I just love it very very much and it is very smooth and quiet too I love the my computer key too takes right to my hard drives for storing my games

Other Thoughts: i used the keyboard so much i actually broke the spacebar key in half playing saint row 4 so much jumping involved in the game i broke the key good luck getting a replacement looks like i will be buying another one wich sucks oh well hope it doesnt happen again !!!!

4 out of 5 eggsNicely priced large lettered lighted keyboard

Pros: I like the option of colors. I have a visual impairment and the blue and red lettering is a big help. It is easy to toggle through the colors to see what works best. The keys activate with very little pressure and I am easily able to type at a fairly high rate of speed. Nicely priced large lettered lighted keyboard especially compared to some keyboards with large letters.

Cons: The keys at the top of the keyboard are useless to me. The keys are so small that I can't discriminate what each is for. That is a little disappointing. There is plenty of space to make them a little larger which would increased visibility and functionality.

Other Thoughts: If this one fails, I would order another.

4 out of 5 eggsexcellent in every way

Pros: Keys are effectively bigger.
The keyboard feels good.
It is well lite
Extra buttons for quick access at the very top

Cons: The keyboard light does not turn off when I turn my pc off. I have to keep the top far right key for several seconds to turn the keyboard's lights off.

Other Thoughts: Hope they fix the keyboard to turn lights off when the pc turns off!

4 out of 5 eggsEgg-cellent

Pros: I just got it today, so these are my first impressions.
Honestly, I think this keyboard is a steal for anyone looking for a basic keyboard. The keys have a nice travel distance, and it overall feels nice in my hands. The backlights are even across the board and they are bright enough to see without being distracting. Plus having media keys on a keyboard is amazing. I don't know how people live without them.

Cons: The most annoying thing about this keyboard is that there aren't any rubber feet on the back of the board. There are four underneath wrist rest but not underneath the back feet. This may or may not be an issue depending on your desk. I have a hardwood desk and this thing slides around when I'm typing. This is easily fixed with my extended mouse pad however. Some double sided tape could also do the job I suppose if you don't feel like buying an extended mouse pad.

It does feel a little flimsy, but you won't be able to tell when it's sitting on your desk. Just don't sit on it and you'll be fine.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my parents simply because it was the cheapest keyboard I could find that had backlights. Overall I'm quite impressed with it. I personally use a Microsoft Sidewinder X2, but if it died on me I would gladly use this AZIO as a backup.

Obviously if you prefer mechanical switches on your keyboard then you aren't going to be happy with this product, because these keys feel just like any other membrane keyboard. But if you're looking for a cheap backlit keyboard with media keys then look no further because this keyboard has everything you need.

1 out of 5 eggsNot built well

Pros: Relatively inexpensive

Cons: Poor quality materials & workmanship. Used for less than 6 months before it had 2 colors. The backlighting started switching on & off randomly. Sometimes changed colors rapidly while typing.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat in any color!

Pros: I LOVE this very "mature friendly" feature with large letters lit in any color I want (blue, red or purple). It's not too big, easy to read, has everything I want in a keyboard. I can even turn the lights off if I want!

Cons: No brightness adjustment. It only has on or off. However, i did not find it to be overly bright nor too dim, so of little overall consequence.

Other Thoughts: I had an LED keyboard before buying this one that was nice but because I sit with my keyboard on my lap, I could not clearly see the letters and numbers, just a purple lighted smudge to tell me where the key was in the dark. New keyboard is a vast improvement.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent keyboard for the price

Pros: Backlighting makes keys visible in low light environments
Otherwise, works as advertised
Media control buttons and calculator button are convenient

Cons: After a little over a year of moderate to heavy use, the most commonly used keys (W, A, S, D, Left shift for gaming) have started to wear away. Not yet to the point of being unrecognizable.
My "A" key sticks when I press the upper right corner and I have to press hard to make it go down. Not a big deal, but making sure not to press there took some getting used to.

Other Thoughts: Pretty standard keyboard. Keys are a little shallower than my last keyboard, overall fairly low-profile.
