Top Customer Reviews
Durability - There is not one piece of this keyboard that feels like it is made from cheap materials. The keys have a nice rubber texture that provides comfortable key strokes, and the enlcosure itself feels like a sturdy "Marauder" metal alloy. The key presses are nice and responsive but not overly "springy".
Aesthetics - The overall look of the keyboard is un-rivaled. The back-lit keyboard looks great and the key values are easily legible when in a completely dark room. The four additional edge lights add a nice glow effect, and when combined with SC II, the APM lighting is easily the best integrated feature for a game I have ever seen. The keyboard looks like something that could be ripped right out of the Starcraft universe.
Functionality - Although it lacks the full size of most standard keyboards as some other reviewers have clearly and sometimes angrily pointed out, the keyboard does not lack any of the functionality that any full sized keyboard provides. The only major difference is that Home, End, Page Up, Page Dn, Ins, Del and the arrow keys have been merged into the right number keypad with the ability to toggle what functionality the keyboard uses either number pad or not.
In summary, this keyboard provides an excellent piece of hardware for an already great piece of software. One thing to note, if you are expecting all the bells and whistles of a multimedia keyboard you are looking in the wrong place, but just because a peripheral doesn't offer everything you thought it did (or should), maybe that is an indicator that you (the consumer) should do a little more research before purchasing an item and then giving a poor review.
a few things to note, this keyboard has 2 usb connectors, 1 for they keyboard and 1 for the lighting. the lighting is solid with 3 options which satisfied my computer geek LED need. also there is no designated up, left, right, down arrow keyset, its integrated into the number pad. so if you have num lock on you won't be able to navigate with the arrow. also as mentioned in the other review, yes it is always blue if you are not playing sc2. as mentioned i use with with my imac so just a note the software driver installs to the SYSTEM PREFERENCES under OTHER unlike other razer products where it extracts to APPLICATIONS.
overall, i think its a great product if you are a starcraft fan, it has definitely added to my enjoyment of the game.
I bought this keyboard so i'd have something to play BF3/ other games on. its great for all games.
reasons to buy:
1. size. doesnt take up much real estate. i dont have very much room on my desk, with my mouse pad, monitor and lamp. this keyboard combines the arrows and the num keys. so unless you use the num keys and arrows on a constant basis, you wont find this an issue.
2. backlit. this keyboard can change to almost any color. which is nice because i tend to get sick of things afetr a while and this allows me to get a fresh take on things.
3. keys. the keys are raised and easy to type on. they are also spaced perfectly. every key is coated in a non-slip material and is very nice to type on. they have a nice outlin on every key, which i find a very convenient feature.
4. price. i bought this when it was $100+ and it was well worth it. grab this keyboard. extremely high end keyboard for only 70$.
5. cool features. looks amazing. has side strip lighting as well as underglow lighting to make it look and feel amazing. also comes with APM lighting which changes the color based on your actions per minute. braided USB 2.0 cable is really, really nice.
6. performance. there is almost no ghosting while in gameplay. some say that only mechanical keyboards are truly ghost free but this one allows you to hit 7+ keys before stalling. i have no problems whatsoever with ghosting. my in game performance also got alot better.
I could go on all day about how awesome this keyboard is. but im sure you'd like to see for yourself. if you think that the above qualities are important to you then search no further. this is the keyboard for you.
