Great keyboard


Excellent keyboard worth every cent.

Great mechanical keyboard with satisfying taps. Backlit keys are easy to read in the dark; not too bright not too dark. I've owned this keyboard for three years now and the lighting is just as good as it was when I got it. Keys are all still...

Keys could be a little easier to remove for cleaning. They're on pretty tight.

nice look


great look for a budget board with backlight. better to spend the extra for a v7 for the extra quality

very nice basic keyboard with nice backlighting. cost effective budget keyboard with a real nice look and does what its designed for.

keys start squeak after a few hours use

Great keyboard!


-Looks great (red makes everything better) -The keys have a nice feel to them and are quiet especially if you slide-type. (maybe thats just me) -Best of all, it is a great value

Only gripe I can think of is simple media buttons.

Great budget gaming keyboard


If you are looking for a great keyboard for everyday use and gaming, this is exceptional value, you will not be disappointed. I saved a hundred bucks and put that to more important things like paying for my gtx780ti dual classified

No this is not mechanical, but who cares. This keyboard gives you a nice feeling when keys are depressed and is easy to type on without being annoyingly loud. The backlight is adequate and not distracting. People giving this keyboard a low score...

The hand rest is something I found to be rather poorly made (flimsy), and is rather pointless. I found this keyboard to be easier to use without it.

good quality, little light on features


This is a great keyboard with a few slightly off things about it. I would give it a 4.5 rather than a 4 is the finish wasn't glossed on the keys. Don't get me wrong this is a great keyboard, I would just consider if you will need macro keys at some point

Backlight isn't distracting or overdone keys all have a nice responsiveness overall is comfortable sleek and clean ...written many-a-essays on it...

feature list is a little light -no macro keys/ media keys means that you will find yourself using many universal modifier shortcuts for custom commands - volume and light keys are not illuminated (little awkward looking to have 4 keys not light) - all...

Wrong Keyboard Sent


Nice Back light, comfortable detachable palm rest

Not the correct emblems. It is suppose to be a Cyborg not a Mad Catz Symbol

Amazing Keyboard


Solid keyboard for a great price.

I've had this keyboard since my first computer build, which was almost 5 years ago. Everything still works like it was new, no lights out on the backlighting, no keys sticking or not registering, still in 100% working order. I'm a gamer, and have been...

Not mechanical, but already known before buying.
