Top customer reviews
As for the actual functioning of the keyboard, it works, and seems to be decent/high quality. I don't think it will break. Oh, also, you can plug your headset into it which is good because the keyboard takes up two USB slots, so really you aren't losing one. (it also has aux audio/mic inputs)
One of the primary features of this keyboard is the use of Cherry MX brown key switches that make this a 'mechanical' keyboard. If you are considering spending extra money to get a mechanical keyboard then I highly recommend doing research on what type of switch you may like best. Basically it will come down to a personal preference. Here is one of my favorite links to use for research for mechanical keyboards: http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/mechanical-keyboard-guide
*** GENERAL THOUGHTS ***
* A very 'cool' looking well designed keyboard excepting a few of my quibbles mentioned elsewhere which may or may not be relevant to you
* Lights up in red and is unchangeable if you do not get the RGB model of the keyboard, but you can control the brightness (high (100%), medium (66%), low (33%), off) by pressing the correct soft-key on the top. As a programmer, I'm not interested in fancy LED strobes but I do like the lit keyboard.
* Very thick keyboard cable because the end splits into 4x connectors (1x USB for the keyboard, 1x USB for an aux USB port (like for a mouse), 1x 3.5 mm for the microphone jack on the back of the keyboard and 1x 3.5 mm for the audio out jack on the back of the keyboard) but you only need to use one of the USB connectors to use the basic keyboard functions
* This drove me a little nuts - I am used to the ESC key being at the top-left but instead the "G1" key is... but I easily recorded a macro on-the-fly for the G1 key and now pressing the G1 key is the same as pressing the ESC key.
* Easily switch between 3 modes using the "M1", "M2", and "M3" keys... so, for instance, you can assign different macros to each Gx key in each of the three modes and quickly change among the modes using the Mx keys.
* I like the media control keys, especially the volume roller in the upper right to control the main volume level. There's also a cool little LED display that shows the volume (the rectangle of LEDs that is 12 blocks across and 3 blocks tall).
* The removable wrist rest with a rubber texture on it is nice. You'll most likely want to use it.
* There are also stand on the back you can flip out to raise the top of the keyboard.
* You can create some macros without any special driver software but if you want full control you have to install the driver software.
*** THINGS I DON'T LIKE SO MUCH ***
* The lit keyboard is nice, but on some keys, like the number keys, the character above the number is lit up nicely but the actual number is dimmer. For example, the asterisk character about the 8 key is well-lit, but the 8 itself is significantly dimmer. It's like the LED only lights the top half of the key well.
* Having the Gx keys on the left takes some getting use to, and you may want to reprogram the top left G1 key to be another ESC key like I did. In a way, I wish they would have put these keys on the right side of the keyboard instead of the left, but some people will likely prefer them were they are.
* Similarly I find myself going into CAPS LOCK mode when I don't want to... this could be because it may just require more time for me to get use to this keyboard so I don't accidentally hit the CAPS LOCK key. Another reviewer mentioned that they disabled that key and I may do that as well, but it does require the driver software.
* Again, I may just need more time to get use to this keyboard, but it seems I actually make less typing mistakes on my previous Logitech K740 keyboard. It's not a mechanical keyboard and doesn't have all the control the G.SKILL keyboard gives you but it is still one of my favorites.... but again, this is personal preference.
*** CONCLUSION ***
Reminder: Be sure to get the RGB version of this keyboard if you want control over the LED lighting. I do not have the RGB version so mine has crimson red LED lighting only. If you buy only the red version then you may regret it later.
Overall there is a lot to like about this keyboard but also some minor 'quibbles' so I'm going it 4.5 stars and rounding up to 5.
NOTE: I was sent a free product sample for review. I was not paid or told what to write.
But the real piece of cake is gaming... And it is amazing! No more "unregistered button press", no more "I missed right button" issues. And above all of that - macroses. Very useful when you are playing something like Killing Floor or WH40000: Dawn of War 2 for example.
As a conclusion - it is very good for both work and games... And, by the way, it has no Russian localization but I had no problem with that. Also chose with red lights because it was cheaper than RGB a LOT. Who cares about RGb? I am not!
