The ZM-K900M requires no software installation and universally compatible with any operating system. The macros automatically remembers the time interval between the inputs and runs exactly as you typed. The keyboard stores the data inside the keyboard, so you can instantly run your macros on any computer.

This macro is equivalent of holding down a single key. It is used when a single key needs to be repeatedly pressed for a long time, such as when casting a spammable spell in a game. If the user types any key while the macro is running, the macro stops during interruption then resumes the macro.

Great product at its price 5/21/2020 12:14:48 AM

Pros: Consistent feel and works well after about 3+ years
RGB works well 99% of the time
Not too loud clicks just the way I like it

Cons: Occasionally have to unplug and re-plug into PC because it freezes after computer goes to sleep

Overall Review: I recommend this to anyone who wants a basic RGB mechanical keyboard and doesn't want to break the bank

Decent Mechanical Keyboard 1/18/2020 4:10:57 AM

Pros: Consistent key feel. Solid construction. Seriously bright back light which can be dimmed or turned off.

Cons: Updated to add: Two years later, and this keyboard keeps having intermittent key-failure. Just... pick a random key and it'll fail on and off for a week, and then work like normal again. Can't say as I've ever had a keyboard make me more insane, but when it works, it's the comfiest I've got, so I've been putting up with it.

The rest of this is just nitpicking, and there's nothing else really wrong here.

Weird grippy key surface, such that my fingers actually squeak a bit when typing. It's odd, but not a serious issue. (This wore off after a few months) Minorly lighter key weight than expected, but still enough for decent feedback. If the back light is off, the keys aren't as visible as a traditional white-on-black keyboard.

Overall Review: My main concern was that I'd be able to turn off the back lighting - I can - but it turns out that learning the setup from Zalman's site is really straightforward, and I find I'm using the back light dimmed down while typing in the dark fairly happily. The more advanced stuff like the light show on key press and flow/flash effects are seriously distracting if I'm working or gaming, but make a nifty room light when all the other lights are out.

Will probably nab a few more come the next sale.

Cons: LED programming stopped working after a year it only lights up in one program mode now.

Alright 12/22/2018 2:53:30 PM

Pros: Sturdy
Colorful
Pretty
Feels decent to start with

Cons: Switches seem to deteriorate as time goes on
Spacebar has issues

Overall Review: The brown switches on this keyboard are great! Not too loud, but not silent, either. I previously tried out a cherry MX blue keyboard and did not particularly like the feel of it. But this keyboard has smooth keycaps that take very little time to getting use to. I don't have a super vast knowledge keyboards, but I can indeed say that this one is one of the best sub $100 keyboards out there when taking into account the RGB illumination, the feel and sturdiness. Doesn't get a whole lot better than this, folks!

UPDATE (12/22/18): The tactile bump in the keyboard seems to not be as prevalent as it was when I first received this keyboard. As a result, my typing speed seems to be slowing down quite considerably. Also, the space bar frequently tips to one side. I'd recommend getting a keyboard with outemu switches instead. It's not Zalman's fault that the Kailh switches are faulty.

Looks good so far!! 10/26/2018 4:34:23 AM

Pros: My last keyboard was a Das Keyboard. Though it was a fantastic keyboard, it did die about a week ago. It didnt have lit keys which proved to be difficult for me when working late nights on 3d modeling/content development. I often dont have my hands in a particularly good position to strictly type, and when that is the case, you kinda need to see the keys. Anyhow, yea, this one just arrived so I can not speak on longevity yet, but, its unboxing revealed a very nicely designed keyboard and my favorite part is its very diminutive size. Basically where the keys end, so does the frame. No need to waste valuable desk space. It feels great too. Very responsive, very nice key feel, all in all on the initial impression front its a 5/5. Ill update further in a few months. I also have the zalman zm-gm mouse and its a winner too. It was because of this mouse that i searched out other hardware from zalman. Well, that and years of using their cooling fans.

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: So far yes. In a few months ill update this post with reliability and longer term conclusions.

Great Mechanical Keyboard if the price is right 9/5/2018 12:00:50 PM

Pros: Solid build quality, everything feels sturdy, lighting quality is bright and highly adjustable. Tons of customization features. Kailh blues have a satisfying click, just as satisfying as Cherry MX.

No separate software, everything is done through key combinations on the board itself.

Cons: Lack of software can make it tricky to setup, once you are setup it is easy to switch between modes. Confusing and time consuming process for initial setup if you want something very particular.

Overall Review: Having all the controls on the board itself is both a feature and a challenge that takes getting used to and it can be a bit of a pain if you want complicated individual key color layouts but overall a solid product to use with great build quality.

I got this on flash for $43, I wouldn't pay more than $60-$70 given relatively lack of programmable keys and clunkiness of all hardware setup.

Exceeds all my expectations! 6/29/2018 2:40:04 PM

Pros: Solid construction
Key feel and performance is exactly as the Kailh Blue product specification defines
The macro keys have helped my gaming tremendously

Cons: none so far
but, it is possible, playing with all the features is addictive! lol

Overall Review: I am enjoying this keyboard far more than is normal
so many RGB features, so entertaining

11/19/2017 update - I am delighted with this keyboard. It is exactly what I expected and performs correctly up to the Kailh Blue spec and features as advertised. What a good value!

06/29/2018 update - keyboard is still working perfectly. I had the occasion to deal with Zalman customer service for a repair part. I got the best help a person could wish for from Dan. I am grateful.
