OCZ OALKBELX2US USB Wired Slim Alchemy Series Elixir II Keyboard

 

Left Shift shares space with another key. If you are a touch typer, this makes using the left shift key very very annoying. So annoying, I'd like to take off two eggs... but it is my fault for not researching. If you want a slim sleek keyboard that...

Functions great ; Shortcut keys ; Looks slick ; slim/lightweight with full size feel ; Rubber inlay on the keys ; Very long cable for easy arrangement

The left shift key is not fullsize ; Power off hotkey only puts PC into "sleep

Consumer review by:

You can't press W + number key at the same time, space key broken

 

Style, cost, 'soft' keys

Keyboard does not recognize a number key pressed when you have for example, W pressed at the same time. Since this is a gaming keyboard, people playing FPSs usually run around with W and use a number key to change weapons. It doesn't work, and this is...

Terrible Keyboard

 

Dont buy it if you are a gaming person. If you are a stylish person.. and you want your case / keyboard / mouse / Monitor blue.. buy this.. it has a great color on it and the style is nice.

The color is a great color.. i guess because my brother is a fan of unc and it is light blue .. i gave it to my brother

Not a gaming Keyboard, I am really really angry at the fact that i can't use 2 keys at once.. I tried to use 2 and w and 3 at once or atleast use the keys while they pushed at once

Great No-Frills Keyboard

 

The "grips" present on the keys that other reviewers seem to complain about are really just a rubber lining. They do not stick up at all, nor do they form a ledge. If you need a no-frills keyboard, then this will do the job perfectly!

Keys spaced well (preference), and have very little travel. Smaller footprint is nice as well. Well made as well, which is surprising given its price

I can foresee the left shift key being an incredible annoyance. Something I have already fixed by remapping the key. Other than that, no complaints

Awesome Keyboard

 

Cons stated can be dealt with, so I still give it 5 eggs

This keyboard is great, keystrokes are quieter than most keyboards, great for gaming

USB cord is a little short and the left shift key is small so it takes getting used to

Consumer review by:

You can't press W and numbers at the same time.

 

Quality control. It makes or breaks your product. A gamer testing this would notice that right away.

Style, cheap, slim

You can't press W and number keys simultaneously. This might sound like a crybaby gripe, but guess what - this is supposed to be a GAMING keyboard and when you run around in FPS games, you use W, and you switch weapons with the number keys. I'm back to...

there is a learning curve

 

I did not like this keyboard at first, mostly because of the left shift and the strange feel of the keys, but after a couple of days I got used to it, and ordered 4 more for my other computers. It also does very well with gaming

awesome keyboard with a great feel. As a very fast typist, this thing is amazing

Like everyone else has said, the left shift key is too small
