3 month then flicker


Good initial prices but after three months I will look to replace.

Until the illumination started to malfunction this was a nice keyboard for persons not doing heavy typing. Keys can be mushy but usable as long as you are not a proud speed typist

Illumination control no longer works, I cannot shut off LEDs or change the color.. Keyboard flickers like a Christmas ornament

Long key press


This keyboard has a lot going for it and would be an excellent choice, except that the key press is very long. The action becomes very tedious and I find myself committing many errors, even after two weeks of acclamation. Also, the board sits too high...

Appearance, price, extra keys

sloppy action. Does not remember color choice. High profile

Great Keyboard


I bought two of these so my wife and I would have the same hardware. It doesn't remember the light setting after reboot but we both really enjoy the default blue. We would set it to blue if it defaulted to anything else.

Looks great on my desk and very easy to see the keys


Consumer review by:

very nice for the money


The included info states over one million key strokes per key reliability. And as a VERY experienced user of different keyboards this feels well built

large type, lighted keys in multiple colors, key feel, shortcuts actually work on most computers

no wrist rest

Quite nice


For the money this is a good illuminated board. Illumination is three colors plus off. Frame material could be a little nicer. I find the keys not as responsive as I would like (they have a deep throw), but will probably get used to them It's nice to...

Extra function keys, large font, attractive colors

Base feels a bit cheap. Keys just a tad spongy

Failing Keys- BAD


RMA sucks. I'm not spending $15 to get another $20 keyboard that will probably fail, too. This was a big waste of my money!!! DO NOT BUY.

Nice LED, Large Letters on keys, decent functionality

Keys Stop Working. Why have a keyboard if the keys cease to function. So far I lost the number five and six (above letters), the CTRL on left side, and the hash mark. Maybe more, I'm not sure yet

This keyboard is a pleasure to use and is great for gaming.Another nice thing is the letters will never wear off the keys.AND YES YOU CAN SHUT THE LIGHTS OFF IF YOU WANT TO.Just hold down the light switch for a few seconds and the lights go off.I've...

Sharp looking and quality made keyboard.The illumination of the keys is dead areas at all.Key letters are large and easy to see.Key action has just the right feedback.The profile of the keys are low close to the same style as a...

The negative feedback some users are giving this keyboard

Sticky keys and durability


LED backlit

the keys stick pretty much no matter how you strike them and it can't even last a little over a month with a two year old who likes to play with it

It Works


My MS Keyboard of over 8 years finally gave out so I got this keyboard because of the backlight to match my blinged rig and to help my old eyes because of the oversized letters. My initial impression is that the keyboard is sturdy, made of reasonably...

Seems well built. Aesthetically pleasing. Solid feel to the keys

Lights don't go out when I power off my PC
