Not very bright...

 

Not bad, but not great. The low touch keys will take some used to and I worry the paint will come off. For now it's a pretty lit up keyboard with some (limited) multi-media keys. On the box it specifies, (duh) the sleep key will put the computer into...

Backlit, adjustable back light. edge lighting, built-in wrist rest, piano black finish, multi-media keys, full standard keyboard layout (not compact)

Only red and blue backlight, soft travel, light touch keys, painted black paint on clear plastic finish. Plus key on the keypad only has 1 contact point instead of two so the key sits as if one side (bottom) is broken. Same with Enter key, back space...

Great Keyboard

 

The price is fantastic and the LED is super bright. I keep it glowing red to match all my LED fans on my pc. I read some of the other reviews, I have had the keyboard for 1 month and a week and it still glows perfectly and works great. No issues

My only con is I wish there was a way to simply turn off the LED without lowering the brightness setting, but hey for the price I can't complain

Lasted me a while

 

I have noticed how much i like this keyboard compared to ones with bigger keys but it is much harder to slide your hand and find the correct key.

I got it for $5 at the goodwill, cheap for a nicely back lit keyboard

After a while the space bar doesn't work well on the edges so this is a problem for gaming, my w key is all worn and my asd are hardly visible, every key still works though

Consumer review by:

not too bad

 

The red/blue color switching is pretty cool but it would be cooler to have more color choices

low profile, backlit keys

sticky keys, I've had the keyboard for over a year so it definitely could use a bit of cleaning, but the keys sticking has been an issue since day 1

Consumer review by:

nice for price

 

Nice price is right for 2 color light up remember you get what you pay for I have a sidewinder for myself but this is great for my wife she even spilled coffee on it already still typing away

keeps going to blue on start up she has every thing red not a bad thing but throws off the whole theem

Not sure about the rest

 

For those with problems with the side lighting, I spent 2 minutes with some electrical tape and a razor blade and it's not a problem any more. In fact I liked it on the side I placed the mouse, and left it there. Oh well, your choice.

Not sure why everyone dings this board. Quality up til now appears adequate. Price to value seems on par. Like the backlighting. I added this to a photo editing system, so I will admit there isn't a lot of keyboard time. But what ime I have had,...

None so far, will update if I encounter any

Decent performance but the QUALITY ewww!

 

This Keyboard is a great Keyboard with the exception of reliability. Odds are good that you will be replacing this Keyboard so stay away. go for the Thermal Take keyboard instead. My better, costs about 78 to purchase the cheapo model but way better!!...

The Pro's with keyboard do out weight the cons. Over all this Keyboard is pretty good on the performance portions Key placement is optimal with the exception of the "\" and "Enter"keys. Like everyone else says, they are in a strange spot but I adjusted...

the cons on this board however are a bit heavy. Like many other reviewers this Keyboard isn't reliable according to my first experience. It must be bad because I couldn't talk Newegg.com into a RMA with them at all. They refused. I bought this Keyboard...
