This is my first gaming keyboard. I'm very pleased. The illumination features (3 colors, 4 brightness settings) are very nice for late night gaming sessions (especially for an insomniac like myself). The gamepad is amazing. It takes a little adjusting to (PERFECT size for my hand, also), but once you get the hang of it, you can obliterate the competition.
Has not affected my ability to type, either. I type roughly 100 words per minute, and the keyboard's layout has not hindered me at all. Also, have not had any trouble with the 2-in-1 number pad to the right side, as others have mentioned.
The only real problem with this keyboard is that the software it comes with doesn't really work. When it does work, the Z-Engine is pretty cool, but most of the time it fails to work correctly (especially on Vista). However, you don't need the software to use the keyboard, the software just lets you customize your settings outside of games. It becomes a little bit of an inconvenience to set up your configs for every game in-game, but not so much that it inhibits the keyboard at all.
VERY pleased. Very much worth the cash in my opinion.
