decent

 

overall a decent keyboard. i play fps shooters all day, and have had no problems with ghosting or anything.

for only 22$ it's a very good keyboard. keys are soft and comfortable, all the macro keys, and multimedia keys work just as my g15 did. the extra keys are a great touch

no back lighting, but you would expect this for only 20 ; the rubber does wear of kinda quick but hey, just replace them with the extra keys they gave you

Good for the money

 

Well worth the money. I would not call it a true gaming keyboard like some I have seen but it is very nice for the money. I guess I will see how long the rubber keys last.

Soft keys, very comfortable. Works well for my gaming purposes. Extra buttons in the box is a nice touch

Buttons feel a little low and the keyboard is very wide. The far side controls should have been put at the top

Absolutely terrible

 

This is the worst keyboard on newegg. I'm sorry OCZ, but I will never buy another one of your products.

That I only got dinged 25

Everything. I don't know where to start, so how about a list ; 1. Horrible, mushy, sticky keys ; 2. Rubberized grip wears off immediatley ; 3. Ridiculously Large ; 4. Cheap construction ; 5. Terrible quality ; 6. Crippled media keys ; 7. Software was...

Good keyboard.

 

-Worth every penny. -The macro'ing is useful for games that do not have macro functions.

No problems far ; Does not require a lot of understanding to use ; Keys are soft to the touch ; No annoying window key on left side of keyboard

Very long and big. (Hard to adjust my mouse's distance from this keyboard when gaming.)

Price/Performance Winner

 

Give it a week. It can take a little getting use to visually. My hand position was naturally off when using this keyboard at the start. I started at D and H or G, K as I was not use to the size and extra button layout of this keyboard. However after...

I got this keyboard to BOTH game and for web and media development. It's full-filled both roles. The software looks bad but functions well under vista. It uses very little system resources and is fairly initiative to use. The "extra" buttons on the far...

L3-5 and R3-5 are finicky. You can put the same macro in L1 or L2 and it works fine but put that macro in L3, L4, L5 and it's hit or miss. I'm not sure why this is. However the macro does work however it sometimes take repeated presses or long pauses....

great keyboard, use it with autohotkey

 

This is actually a great keyboard. You don't need to install included software to make the function keys to work, AutoHotkey could totally do the job. in mode 1, by pressing L1, system receives F1 and 1 ... in mode 3, by pressing R5, system receives...

this thing is dirt cheap

wrist rest could be a little longer

Keyboard is just ok...

 

I'm going to keep the keyboard, with Windows 7 right around the corner, hopefully that will solve the problems, if not, well as long as the blue buttons are avoided the keyboard seems very solid and so far works without a hitch. :P

The rubber coated keys give a very tactile feeling, the keyboard so far is very responsive, not overly loud. It comes with extra keys

The function keys are a joke, running Vista Premium 64, the function keys randomly lock the keyboard up, making it so you have to unplug the keyboard to regain any keyboard functionality. This happens with or without their software installed, also when...

Solid keyboard

 

The rubberized keys are great and typing seems pretty natural. I almost want to wire a sensor onto the keyboard to make a substitute for the left super key :(

Nice feel, solid design

No super (Windows) key on the left side (major con for me, I use it a lot) ; No Linux support (for macro and media keys), basic functionality only
