Totally sweet board. 12/27/2010
This review is from: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard - Retail
It ain't no Logitech G19, but it gets the job done, and has some cool features. Backlit keys with 4 variable brightness settings, quick response time, two braille-like bumps on the 'W', Macros (three changeable macro profiles, with 6 macro buttons), Media player buttons (Pause, play, previous, next, volume up\down\mute), Calculator button. You can make it so it disables the winkey while in-game, which is rather handy. Also, the plastic thingies in the back that you flip out to make your keyboard stand at an angle are thick and heavy duty, so I'd be surprised if they broke any time soon.
You can't detach the wrist rest, so it's rather wide. The key distance/size/something differs from other boards so it'll take a bit to get used to.
I got this board during the Black Friday event for $29.99. Good stuff.
