Form and Function

 

All around good keyboard, great for the price. I would recommend it to anyone who didn't mind having a slightly larger key separation than most. Looks good and feels good. No complaints, here.

The backlighting is really nice, with the three colour choices and the dimming control. The keyboard responds very well, while typing. I do a lot of gaming and it feels good right out of the box

The keys are a little widely spaced, for some. I've got big enough hands that it doesn't bother me, but I can see some struggling with this

Exceptional

 

Awesome keyboard with 3 different colors. This is easily the coolest keyboard I have owned. Colors make it really easy to see the keys in a dark room

Wish there were more than 3 colors

Not that anybody should have to say it in a review but remember that this is a wired keyboard, I thought I would throw this in because wireless tends to be almost universal today. (Wouldn't want anybody to miss that acknowledgement and become...

The size of this keyboard isn't overly bulky or extremely crammed as some others I've used lately ; The functionality of the keys is perfect (requiring just the right amount of pressure in order to type) the keys aren't clunky when typing nor are they...

The only "real" con that I can think of is that the flip tabs on the back on the keyboard that adjust the angle that it sits at while typing are fairly weak ; That is not to say that they will break from typing but if you have a son who "likes to show...

Amazing product AND support

 

I broke the spacebar while removing it to clean the yogurt I spilled on the keyboard. It was way out of warranty at this point, so after superglue failed to restore it to its former glory, I decided to try to buy a new key from the manufacturer before...

Sturdy, excellent key pressure (I'm a writer and recovering gamer), and the controls for the color and strength of the backlit keys are perfect

None for me

Illuminated in red blue and purple ; Nice sized keyboard ; Really nice plan rest ; I use it for gaming, works very well

This keyboard is one of the best Saitek has put out in my opinion. The first 2-3 single color boards didn't last long, the keys would eventually start going dead. This one I've had sine 2010, bought from Newegg, and it's still going strong. No dead...

NONE

5 years of abuse and the space finally gave way

 

Great back lit colors, sound controls are super nice, keys are above average

Space bar just stopped working like it should - one of the spring sides was getting stuck. Too many bunny hops I suppose

I have read that several people can't get the media keys to work with win 7,,all i did was plugged this keyboard up and every key works,play,pause,and all that good stuff. A very awesome keyboard for sure
