-Good weight, sturdy construction
-Good paint on keys
-Resilient USB cable with decent length
-Spacing of keys feels comfortable
-Features number pad (for other office/daily tasks)
-Multimedia controls at the top
-Straight-forward software installation and set-up (comes with CD for installation, and a link to download if CD drive isn't an option)
-Included software to customize the features of the keyboard (lighting, macros, sensitivity)
-Brightly backlit (even in a lighted room) and features various brightness levels (I believe 3) and a spectrum of any color you could want
-Able to toggle between 3 selected colors on the fly via a dedicated button
-Breath/pulse, strobe lighting features
-Able to bind macros to 5 keys located on the left hand side
-Able to adjust the sensitivity and input delay of each key press
Overall, it has many features to supplement all of your gaming needs, however it cannot be compared fairly to a truly mechanical keyboard when it comes to the sensitivity of pushing each key (requires noticeably more effort). I understood that this was not mechanical, and I opted for a non-mechanical keyboard because I didn't want they loudness that comes with mechanical keyboard as I tend to play into the late hours of the night.If you're buying this product with the expectation that it will be able to compete with or replace a mechanical keyboard, this is not the product for you.
However if you're in the market for a nicely crafted, customizable keyboard for gaming without the "clickity clack", then give this product a shot!
It's so hard to believe they are asking $35 for this pile of plastic, after they just had it on sale for $13 and free shipping and then would not allow reviews because of a crazy number of complaints. Even for $13, this keyboard is awful in every way. Macro keys are useless without software. That's a level of cheap I haven't seen in over 10 years! The keyboard should have included black alternative keys for the 8 mis-colored keys ideal to gamers only. The keys themselves are VERY LOUD! I SAID THE KEYS ARE VERY LOUD!
You can only select from RED, GREEN or BLUE for your lighting UNLESS you install software! (basically, its a software-based keyboard. What real gamer wants to use his/her system resources for the keyboard while they need all the system resources they have to game and/or Twitch?)
The LEDs do NOT stay on. After a period of inactivity, the lights go out. In a dark room and can't see your keyboard? Randomly press a button and it will light up again, but I hope you didn't just unknowingly press the delete button!
For this price, a much better keyboard (that doesn't require software to work) is called the Pictek Mechanical Feel Gaming Keyboard Wired, LED Gaming Keyboards USB Wired Keyboard with 7-Color Backlit, 26 Anti-ghosting Keys for Gamers Office. You can also pick up pro-series gaming keyboards from Corsair that have been refurbished and cost about the same, but are far superior in every single way.
Looks like a solid keyboard, and the LED functions are pretty cool, I like that you can set the brightness and choose from almost any color through the software, was able to find a shade of green on low brightness that was easy on the eyes in the dark.
The biggest flaw is that there's a button to mute audio but no volume up or down ones, which I think is a major omission for a multimedia centered keyboard, I would not get a modern keyboard without one of those anymore after getting spoiled by the convenience.
Anyway, like I said, they keyboard is well made, has a ton of features, was weighted (which is nice) and has all the multimedia keys you need. If it just wouldn't have this weird driver/usb problem it might actually be the best keyboard on the market for the price. Amazon says the item is now "Under Review" so maybe they'll fix whatever the problem is because I'd love to actually be able to use this keyboard once the problem are fixed.
