Cyborg V.7 Review

 

Mad Catz is one of the leading providers of products for the interactive entertainment industry. Under its Cyborg brand, it develops accessories specifically targetted towards pro gaming. Currently there are three keyboards available from Cyborg...

Beautiful and durable

 

An excellent choice for yourself or a gift... anyone will be glad to have a keyboard this nice.

I've had this keyboard for over a year. I use it at least 4 hours a day for gaming and surfing... and it has never let me down. The 3 lighted zones have the option to be lit in different colors

Not really a CON, but it is a little bit on the large side... if you don't have very much desk space

Saitek Cyborg Keyboard keyboard

 

i was actually going for the razer lycosa, but saitek came out with a new keyboard (at the time, i had the saitek eclipse two and i LOVED it, typing was awesome and it was beautiful). i got this keyboard when it first came out. after the first day, my...

has the colors orange, green, and red. there's a couple colors between green and orange (like yellow ish) ; 12 hotkeys ; touchscreen media keys ; gaming mode that disables windows key ; headphone, mic, and usb extension

rather large ; media keys get smudged ; bad typing experience for touch typists ; metal keys" do not actually feel or endure like metal. how disappointing

Unreliable! A Manufacturing FAILURE, no QA process!

 

On my original purchase, the left Alt key did not work from day 1. The "7" key in the number row (not number pad on the right) died - discontinued to respond to strokes after less than 6 months.

1. It's pretty ; 2. Capability to write macros, can program spacing between commands ; 3. Color scheme (backlit) is nice ; 4. Metallic looking W, A, S, D and spacebar buttons

1. Macro language is challenging ; 2. Typing is difficult (the keys sloppily depress) compared to a cheap keyboard you might get with a Dell (for example) ; 3. Buttons will "die" out. Not a matter of "if

Loaded Gaming Keyboard

 

Ive had this keyboard for about 2 months and it has worked perfectly for me i love the customization features and the macro program doesn't slow down my computer.

Customizable Color sections to divide the keyboard ; 12 customizable back light macro buttons 6 on right 6 on left ; Game mode disables windows key ; Multimedia touch panel ; usb port and headset inputs

Shiny WASD keys and Arrow keys can be slick but usually don't have a problem with them ; Price is high if your not a gamer

Consumer review by:

well done saitek i love the cyborg keyboard , specially the lights that you can change the colours , to highlight the different zones , also the wasd ,and arrow keys are metal

metal gaming keys and different light zonesv

would have liked blue lights aswell

Consumer review by:

fail do not buy

 

Very disappointed because i've used saitek keyboards for about 6 years now with no problems at all and now this. screw saitek

worked flawlessly for about 11 months

then about 8 or 9 keys died and they dont have support basically. They don't respond to emails and their so called tech support line just plays elevator music for 20 mins or so and then hangs up on you

Sweet but not fully functional

 

I bought mine on e bay and it was listed as brand new, When I got it several keys didn't work and the seller didn't respond to my emails to replace it even though his listing stated to contact him with any problems. I keep hitting the caps lock key...

Backlit keys ; media controls ; brightness and color adjustments ; adjustable rake ; detachable wrist rest ; headphone and mic pass thru ; Disable the windows key in Cyborg Mode

USB passthrough is only USB 1.1 not 2.0 ; Several keys didn't work right out of the box ; the lowest brightness setting is rather bright and it just gets brighter ; Software is a pain, I can't figure out what I can program the side buttons for or how...
