The keyboard keys themselves are nice, the plating on WASD and the arrow keys are a nice touch, made me feel like they actually wouldn't wear away (as if that would ever be a problem). It's also good height even without using the legs on it, and there are two different leg lengths on the keyboard which is great.
The wrist guard it comes with is really just "okay", a little big but not exactly comfortable but not uncomfortable either. The real problem with it, for me at least, was that it never fully attached to the keyboard. It had the tendency to slide around a little making it annoying.
Now for the juicy reason as to why it's a 2 star review. (Foreword: I'm running Windows 7, have plenty of extra power on PC, and used multiple ports on mobo, case, and various USB hubs while trying to unfuckulate this keyboard.)
The "buttons" on the top ultimately stopped functioning after about 2 weeks. I used the button to turn on the lights about three or four times before those just gave up. I couldn't turn the lights on, couldn't change the color when they were on sometimes, and the same for the brightness. Completely unresponsive to my various tapping pressures. The only way I found to fix it was to unplug it then plug it back in and that seldom worked. And like I said in the foreword, I tried so many different ports to see if it would fix itself. Nope. So that was a bust, I ultimately left the lights on it off since they would turn off by themselves after about 20 minutes of being on anyway.
The programmable keys are okay, kind of a leap to use them in high-octane situations but they're okay. Okay?
The drivers and software for this keyboard feel like it's from the '90s which is not so okay. Very ugly even for MAD CATZ.
And oh sweet Jesus H. Christ the audio issues I had when this monster was plugged in was insane. When I said NONE of the control buttons worked I meant NONE of them. As a matter of fact the mute button was so counterproductive it's the main reason why I dumped this for some Red Dragon keyboard for like $35.
Imagine you're listening to music/middle of a vidya game/watching a video etc. and then all of a sudden, for no apparent reason at all, everything goes mute. You go and try to turn the volume up but guess what? It slides back down to 0 no matter what you do. You've a few options from here. Restart your computer or try and reconnecting your keyboard. Both are extremely annoying and I found that restarting my computer is the only guaranteed way to get audio control back. Not exactly something I liked doing in the middle of talking to friends or what have you.
Any slight nudge, movement, or a beam of moonlight shining off a mirror could trigger the weird auto-mute. It would get more and more constant the longer I had the dumb thing.
The only slightly redeeming audio quality was the headphone USB/jacks on the keyboard itself. It can be useful, but not pretty (if you're ornery about being neat) if you have 7m of bundled up cord near your monitor.
Ultimately I would never ever spend as much money as I did on this again, or any MAD CATZ product (unless it's a RAT 3) seeing as how I got literally no support from them what-so-ever and came looking to these reviews for solutions to our unsolvable problems.
Lesson learned I suppose.
First thing is first, those metal capped keys aren't metal. They are a metallic colored plastic. Secondly the included software is just for creating macros. Speaking of macros those buttons aren't positioned very nicely, you really have to go out of the way to press them. There is horrible key rollover on the right side of the keyboard and usable gaming rollover on the left side (4 keys). The LED back lighting is configured on the touchpad on the keyboard, customization is very limiting and the green setting stopped working on my keyboard. The "gaming mode" customization should be available regardless of being in gaming mode. This keyboard is difficult to clean. and the small legs on the back snapped off. Lastly dust loves to accumulate and stick on the touch pad and in the grooves of the macro keys. Clean regularly or cleaning later becomes difficult.
This keyboard feels nice use and the mute switch on the top gets constant use from me. The usb and audio pass through have been a life saver for me since I use a pair of analog headphones and the audio jack on the front of my case broke after about 20 uses and the wire on the headphones are short. The pass through is handy if you have a mouse with a short wire or frequently use removable storage like I do. The plastic on the body of the keyboard is very sound though I can't say the same for the back legs or key caps.
Unless macros are a requirement for what you are doing, don't purchase. You can easily get a Corsair keyboard with n-key rollover, software to customize back lighting and more usb pass through ports for about the same price.
It doesn't have all the colors that newer keyboards do but its aged very well and will likely last me another 5+ years.
I think one of my favorite parts is the size. This keyboard is massive compared to my other ones. The drivers work seamlessly and I've had no trouble with Win10. The volume touch part will sometimes not display the volume bars but that's usually my fault for not installing the software for it.
Overall its still a great keyboard. I only suggest buying this if
• You have the desk space for a little bit larger of keyboard
• Are fine with limited colors
• Want a non-mechanical keyboard
