5 out of 5 eggs Buy this keyboard! 06/27/2012

This review is from: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard - Retail

Pros:

Crazy good value for money

Cool red backlighting

Crisp keypresses (Harder, no flex once you hit bottom like cheaper keyboards)

Media/volume adjustment keys are useful

Keyboard looks really cool

Real antighosting. I tested, and you can press every key on this thing and they'll all register.

Cons:

Keypresses are slightly loud because of the crisp keypresses.

Macro keys are placed awkwardly, making them useless in games where hitting them quickly is important (FPS, action)

You do need to do a manual driver update if you want the media keys to work with iTunes. Intellikey 8.2 on Microsoft's site, if anyone's interested. Takes 30 seconds.

Other Thoughts:

The cons are really nitpicking - this keyboard is perfect for anyone who wants a comfortable, accurate, backlit wired keyboard.
