2 out of 5 eggs Nice Keyboard, horrible keys 09/10/2013

This review is from: Saitek Eclipse II Illuminated Keyboard

Pros: Nice presentation, media keys work well, lights are cool since they go through the keys themselves, solid construction

Cons: The keys are way to hard to press, when I first got the keyboard I thought I merely had to break it in, but after almost a year of use, it still hasn't gotten any easier. almost every key, except for the space bar, has to be pushed down with such force that most of the time I end up not pushing the key at all when typing documents, resulting in me skipping letters in words. This makes me to have to go back and correct tons of mistakes due to keys that weren't pressed down hard enough, which is incredibly annoying.

Other Thoughts: Its a nice keyboard, don't get me wrong, but its so hard to press the keys down that its really not worth using. Too much of my time is spent going back and making corrections in my work due to this keyboard. While the stiffness of the keys may add to the keyboard's overall solid construction, they're just too stiff for general use, like typing up documents. If the keys weren't so stiff after almost a YEAR of use, maybe I would recommend it, but all the bells and whistles in the world don't matter as long as the keys on the keyboard are too stiff for general use.
