Excellent keyboard for gaming in a dark room!

Pros: This is a very nice and well-built mechanical keyboard for an affordable price if you can find this keyboard!! The keyboard is fully programmable, and illumination level is adjustable with the brightest level being very bright. A great keyboard for gaming in a dark room!
I compared it to another mechanical keyboard that I own that has Cherry MX Brown switch keys, and I can honestly say that they are virtually identical. The overall construction of the keyboard is very solid and firm, and stays in place on your desktop. SteelSeries keyboards seem very well made, and the keys are rated for 50 million uses.

Cons: The pamphlet that came with the keyboard is too brief such that a user might easily miss the fact that you must download the software from SteelSeries.com that allows you to program this keyboard and also adjust the illumination levels. Without this software, the illumination level cannot be changed.

Overall Review: This is such a nice keyboard that I will have to take a look at what other products SteelSeries sells.

A reassuringly solid, functional peripheral

Pros: I recently decided to build a new gaming desktop, after several years of working with just a laptop. I own two keyboards: a very old, very basic Logitech keyboard with a PS/2 port, and a more recent Saitek red-backlit keyboard that unfortunately went a little wonky after I spilled a drink on it. I decided that a new build needed a new keyboard. I've owned some SteelSeries peripherals before which I was satisfied with, and they have a fairly good reputation. This particular keyboard was well-rated by other customers. Anyway, this thing is a fairly big and chunky block of plastic. It has a pretty solid feel and heft to it. The USB cable can actually be channeled through different grooves under the board, either directly out the back or to the right or the left, which is convenient. The blue backlight is very bright. I have had no problems finding the keys via peripheral vision in an otherwise darkened room. Now, oddly enough, I had 'ergonomic' as a search filter, and I'm not sure that this is actually ergonomic, as it is basically a rectangular solid covered with keys. However, this construction gives it a fairly narrow width, and I already own a wrist pad for keyboarding. There is plenty of room on my desk for the pad and the keyboard. I haven't experience any pain or discomfort from using the keyboard thus far.

Cons: So far I'm pretty happy with the keyboard. It is a mechanical keyboard, and has a somewhat deep vertical key press distance. Having used a laptop keyboard exclusively for over two years now, I'm having to retrain my fingers, but there is nothing exceptionally difficult or problematic about that. On the construction side, when I was pulling the little plastic feet out on the bottom of the keyboard, one of them popped off under what I believe was normal pressure and mechanical motion. However, I was able to pop it back in, and it has shown no further signs of working loose.

Doesn't disappoint

Pros: Large print keys, uniform backlighting
Overall feels very sturdy
Key press is smooth and satisfying, sound isn't overbearing like some mechanical keyboards

Cons: Backlight can be a little too much in a dark room, even at the lowest setting

Overall Review: The special function key is to the right of the space bar. Still getting used to that
A braided cable sheath would have been nice, but this is still really great at the price point
