GREAT

Pros: I love it! The lights are easy to control. Press the dragon key then any number from 1-8 to change how they look. The keyboard is good. I’ll definitely be using it for a long time!

Cons: It was very rare to happen but, sometimes the tab key would get stuck pushed down. It is probably me and my button mashing though. The wrist rest is a little slippery.

Other Thoughts: I love it I did buy it again for my other pc it’s cheaper and great. I like how it’s not mechanical so I won’t drive my co workers crazy but it still looks awesome.

decent keyboARD FOR THE PRICE

Pros: have owned this now going on a month and it still works. i am rather harsh typist. i tend to slam my keys rather then tap them.
with that said i read all the reviews before buying this. some of these cons are i dunno ranging from no number pad (there is) to keys not working (it is man made there will be issues). but i so far have enjoyed this keyboard. everything works and i play tons of games. i am also 53 years old. i play cod, boarderlands, doom, overwatch, wow and HOTS and many others. this keyboard has done very well.
i owned a blackweb from a local store for years. only reason i replaced it was the keys were giving out and wouldn't type. this was from years of use by me slamming keys on it. when i say years i mean more then maybe 5. the blackweb i owned was the last mechanical keyboard they made i believe. like this keyboard the keys are a wanna be mechanical type now. these sound like it but are not.
the feel is slightly hmm sponge like when you compare to a real mechanical but not real bad like a soft touch.

Cons: only reasons i gave this 4 eggs instead of 5 was 2.
the keys are small
1 (this being subjective and a personal thing to me i am sure) the keys are smaller then what i am used to and i often hit the caps key when typing in games real fast like overwatch. makes it seem like i am screaming at people lol.
2 when looking at the keys today i noticed something kinda odd. the keys do not seem like they were painted all the way. like the paint peeled off part way down or was never painted. there is no paint chips laying about so i guess was never painted to begin with. this does not bother me in the slightest but i am not overly ocd either. but the enter key on the number pad. a button i hardly if ever use is peeling on the top. only reason i noticed it is the rgb is seen through it. it is rather rough in texture as well were the paint is rolled up and peeling.

Other Thoughts: time will tell with me if this will last but before the blackweb i would have to replace my keyboard once a year from the habit of slamming keys. this is something i had grown used to. but since owning the other keyboard for so long, well we will see.
other mentioned a few things id like to also mention.
1 since the keys are small and if you have a vision issue like myself (the reason i didn't notice the paint before). the keys even lit can be kinda hard to see given the size and font style of the letters on the keys themselves.
2 someone said you cannot have just one color and have it be steady... uhh yes you can. it does have prebuilt color flashing designs. what you need to do is download mystic light from msi and you can set it to whatever color you like. i have mine set to green seems to be a color that doesn't make the letter blur to me the best.
for the price of near 55 bucks would i suggest this? ehh can get keyboards at a local store for that. only difference would be the back light. it helps me see and it is hard i think to find a decent keyboard at this price with these options. with that said i bought it on sale for 41 bucks. so yeah if it last and only time will tell that for you. and you need the back light buy it. if not search around if you are ocd about the paint. otherwise it works so far after a months worth of slamming keys for me.
will updaTE THIS IF I CAN IF SOMETHING GOES HORRIBLY WRONG...<<< UHH YEAH SMALL KEYS (just got tired of correcting it as i went)

Pros: color options are cool.
cheap

Cons: keyboard feels flimsy.
buttons stick.
raised way too far up
too much resistance when trying to type or use quickly.

Other Thoughts: you get what you pay for.
