Pros: White backlighting, which is rare in mechanical keyboards. 4 different profiles for macros and settings. That's it, literally.
Cons: First off thought it is claimed to be a Cherry MX Blue keyboard, and the key stems are indeed blue, they do not feel anywhere near Cherry MX Blue. The keys are "clicky", but they are also spongy, almost as if they are the lesser quality Cherry MX switches which are easy to press and do not fully click. Comparing it to my Das Keyboard Professional, the keys feel easier to press, and that's not a good thing for people who want Cherry MX Blue switches. It is a software-less keyboard, which is not a good thing if you want to design long detailed macros. Because there is only one LED per key, the whole keys are not illuminated. For instance, the number keys have their symbols clearly lit (@ # $ etc), but the number is barely lit. This is the same case for every key with more than one function.
Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this keyboard to anybody. The keys are not uniformly lit due to the use of only one LED, which makes it look cheap and that's not what you want from a $110 keyboard. That's relatively minor, as well as the software-less setup, but the major deal breaker is in my opinion this is not a Cherry MX Blue keyboard, the keys do not feel like Cherry MX Blue keys, they are easier to press than the Cherry MX Blue keys on my old Das Keyboard 3 Professional, so it is not suited for people like me who are hard on keyboard, or may have a "heavy" resting weight where keys can be pressed accidentally. Do not make the same mistake I did and have to pay $17 to return it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SmithMicro Manga Studio EX 4 - (PC & Mac)
Pros: Free after mail in rebate. Works fine with Windows 7.
Cons: Disks are labeled backwards (Mac DVD is labeled Windows and vice versa). Interface feels very dated. The FREE EX Content Pack is not obtainable as the website to claim it only says "success" after registering (no links provided). Cannot contact SmithMicro without creating a support account first.
Other Thoughts: Don't waste your money. Version 5 may be worth it, but this version certainly isn't.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: See previous review.
Cons: Mouse wheel button will fail to register 100% of the time at the click point an about 75% of the time past the click point. Apparently this is a known issue judging by other people's reviews. DO NOT ORDER THIS MOUSE, you will regret it.READ FULL REVIEW
