Programmable, low-profile keys, very large size

I picked up this keyboard for productivity use, not for games. I needed something to program multiple keystrokes onto macro-keys for data entry, etc. This keyboard does that, and the downloadable software is flexible and easy to figure out. The layout of macro-keys across the top, over the standard F-keys is also fantastic, making for a lot of flexibility. The back-lighting is bright and works well. The keys are nice and quiet. Contratry to another review, these are *not* mechanical keys...nor should you expect that at this price. There are a few down-sides though. First, these are low-profile keys, more in-line with what you might find on a laptop (but obviously larger) - the keys do not have a lot of "travel" depth-wise, which takes getting used to. The placement of the escape key is a bit odd. It is large, but I kept hitting the keys beside it instead. Finally, this keyboard is *huge*...seriously large. Things are spaced apart almost too much for my liking, and I found I was more prone to errors while typing. The wrist guard is non-removable...that alone would have helped for a standard office setup. Overall, nice for the programmability at the price-point, but the low-profile keys and size are a bit of a deal-breaker for me. Your mileage may vary, but there are other options (even at this price-point) worth looking at with a more traditional size and feel.

Solid keyboard

Well designed, great layout, looks great. Heavy and solid! Only don is that it has only white as the back light, so if you're looking for rainbow or w/e than this isn't for you.

More than you would Expect

Dear curious reader, This keyboard is really for the organized person. If you write a lot of repetitive text, then I highly recommend this keyboard. Ex: eMail, Subjects of a list (Grocery, supplies list) It has more uses then I can possibly say in this review. Its Macro feature is great. I've changed keys I hardly use such as CAPS and ~ to CTRL+F4 and Alt+F4 respectively. Also, if you a keener, you can launch scripts or other .exe files. This keyboard is really underselling itself. Approaching this with the mindset of "what can I make this do?" has yielded faster text impute, navigation and better quantity and constant quality in my day-to day. There is no other keyboard on the market that measures up to the Steelseries standard. It is the only program that can have each key labeled in the program. I label many of my keys according to their new function and I can have up to 4 variations of said function with unlimited profiles. Worth every dollar.

Love It.

Dont let the stiff keys review sway you... Some people just dont know what a machanical keyboard is. (keys are suppose to be stiffer!) As far as another negative review towards the lack of features... Make sure you download all drivers and software from SteelSeries website... Lots of Features!!! (I.E. Keys blink when bomb is ticking in counter strke/Can change LED Color).

Saty With A Basic

The overall features were lack luster and the key are very stiff. I was conned into buying this and felt I was duped. Much better on the market.

Good keyboard

Would buy again

  • from Ottawa, ON

Very Good value...

Purchased this keyboard to replace my previous gaming keyboard - very nice layout; the lit up keys were definitely a bonus. Overall features were somewhat lackluster, but otherwise functional. All together, the keyboard is a good value. 4/5
