Top customer reviews
-- full N-key rollover at a relatively low price ($40 at time of this review) -- verified via Microsoft Applied Sciences keyboard ghosting demo
-- 'professional' appearance like the SteelSeries Apex 300 and Logitech K800.
-- integrated/detachable wrist rest
-- dedicated Volume Up/Down/Mute buttons
-- keycaps are slightly indented in a spherical-concave manner
-- keys F, J, and number pad 5 have a small bump to help you find your place
-- includes USB-to-PS/2 adapter
-- integrated rapid single-key macro ability (no software installation necessary) up to 1000 keypresses/sec -- the capability here is obscured by Zalman's poor technical translation to English, but as I understand it, the keyboard is capable of a rapid response rate of 1000 Hz (equivalent to 1 millisecond response time), as well as an adjustable repeat rate to maximize the use of that response rate (equivalent to 1000 keypresses per second). The adjustment is made on the numberpad after pressing the 'Beyond the Game' button in the upper right corner of the keyboard, applies a rapid repeat function to all keys, and no software download is necessary. Just to experiment, I ran the keyboard in Planetside 2 (free-to-play) with maximum repeat rate; the effect on the Infiltrator stealth ability was to constantly fade in/out without any loss of stealth charge. I don't know how useful that might actually be for an Infiltrator, but if visible by others you would probably be accused of hacking the game. Another experiment in Warframe (free-to-play) permitted continuous melee by holding the button down (not necessary to tap continuously), but made all movement impossible (because the game thinks you are tapping the movement keys repeatedly). The 'rapid repeat' function is applied to all buttons on the keyboard at the same time and cannot be individualized -- that is a serious limitation, as identified. All of this to say that the usefulness of the repeat function varies widely by game, and that you would either have to know that in advance of purchasing the keyboard, or else be willing to experiment to see if it provides value.
-- no backlighting; imitates a plain keyboard without broadcasting its capability (hence "wolf in sheep's clothing")
-- includes 8 additional keycaps and a keycap-removal tool, typically to replace the WASD and Arrow Keys to make them distinguishable. In pictures they are shown as bright red, but the ones in front of me are actually pale maroon. In the absence of backlighting, and no difference in the way that they feel over the regular keycaps, there does not appear to be much value in these. It just makes a relatively inexpensive keyboard look cheaper, in my opinion.
-- typing noise is average-to-loud; noise is mainly due to the upstroke, so even if you could modify the keycaps with O-rings, I do not think it would be very successful in reducing noise. I considered the option to modify only because the keyboard is relatively inexpensive to begin with, and the rapid repeat function could prove useful at a future date; but in the end decided to return the keyboard.
SOUND COMPARISON -- Loudest --> Quietest
-- Microsoft Sidewinder X4 (membrane) -- typing is loud due to wobbly keycaps -- loudest (full N-key rollover)
-- SteelSeries Apex 300 (membrane) -- typing is loud due to wobbly keycaps -- almost as loud as Sidewinder X4 (20-key rollover)
-- Zalman ZM-K600S (membrane) -- slightly quieter than Sidewinder X4 with lower-pitched noise (full N-key rollover)
-- Corsair Strafe (Cherry MX Silent) -- very quiet, mix of low and higher-pitched noise, like a mouse chewing through cardboard (full N-key rollover)
-- Logitech K800 (scissor switches) -- very quiet, high-pitched noise, like soft footsteps on tile (limited rollover capability)
-- Logitech K810 (scissor switches) -- very quiet, high-pitched noise, like soft footsteps on tile (limited rollover capability)
-- Asus Cerberus (rubber dome) -- very quiet, low-pitched noise, like soft footsteps on carpet (19-key rollover)
The ZM-K600S is an economical and understated gaming keyboard with some very (*ahem*) unique functions. If you are looking for a relatively inexpensive gaming keyboard with N-key rollover, minus backlighting, no concern for noise, and potential game-hacking capability then this might be the keyboard for you. If you are willing to spend a bit more, though, there are many keyboards in the $50-60 range that offer a better overall array of features.
After comparing all of the above keyboards with priorities on 1) Gaming-capable; 2) Quiet; 3) Professional-looking; I actually went with the ASUS Cerberus Dual LED Color Backlit Gaming Keyboard (Cerberus Keyboard) (~$10 more at time of this review, quieter, with backlighting). I did consider the possibility of keeping the Zalman and using the money saved to modify the keycaps, but the problem with that is that the design of the shaft that extends from the keycap varies widely among keyboards, so good luck with that. For non-mechanical alternatives in a similar price range, see my reviews of the above-mentioned keyboards.
I am upgrading from a Logitech gaming keyboard. Non-mechanical. I liked it. No major complaints, but I didn't tell my friends about it.
When I got the Zalman ZM-700M I did. This keyboard is a gamer's dream. Seriously, I dream about it. I am a BF4 player when I am not at my day job. That game has a lot of things on in it. This keyboard helps me manage my game and my TeamSpeak functions. The extra row of keys on the left are...well...so "KEY."
Price Point: You are not going to find a better keyboard at this price. Maybe at any price. At 139 bucks you want a keyboard to "wow" you. This one does. The mechanical keys, the led lights, the programable macro keys are all top-notch. The weight of it is also satisfying. It feels expensive. This is no cheap hunk of plastic. Every part of it including the thick braided USB cable screams quality.
Install: This was an easy install. I plugged it in. I did have to refer to the owners manual to figure out how to turn the gaming functions and led lights. Once I got it figured out it was good to go.
Performance: This is my first mechanical keyboard! OMG. They are fast and precise. Never ever will I game on anything else. The extra keys help me manage more complicated games.
"Cool" Factor: Zalman does a good job of making their products look cool. My kids lined up to use it. My wife even asked me to buy one for her. Several of my computer buddies that I showed it to fawned over it.
Desk Management: I like the form factor because it is not oversized like my last keyboard. It is a little larger than a normal keyboard but not much. It doesn't take up a lot of space. The weight of it keeps it securely in place when I am in the heat of a firefight.
Noise Level: The keys clack. I like it. They sound cool. Like quality. But they are loud.
This thing is heavy. I'm not sure if that is a con. Maybe all mechanical keyboards are heavy. But I actually like it. It is also a little louder than a non-mechanical keyboard. But again, I like that. So I am not sure if they are cons. I did have to refer to the user's manual to figure out a few things.
I won this keyboard at EdgeGamers in a contest in a battle with =(eGO)= So I didn't have to buy it. But, would I? Knowing what I know now, gaming on a non-mechanical keyboard is never going to happen again. So yes, the $139 would be well worth it. Seriously, my wife even likes it.
