great replacement for old merc


For those not finding a driver for win7 64 bit. The Steel site does have the driver available under keyboard/ zboard downloads..

Bought this to replace a 7 year old Merc because it has the similar gaming key layout. For $20 , it was a steal. the functions i need worked just fine with the generic driver in win7 64 bit. The keys feel more sturdy then my old merc

not really a con, but there are differences compared to the merc (spacing/button layout), so does take getting used to. The split spacebar is annoying

Software doesn't work


Keyboard kinda works as they say

The software to use all of the features isn't working on my windows 7 system. I have emailed support to see what they say. But well without that it's just a standard keyboard and not a gaming one

don't bother getting it its the worse purchase of your life.

not much pay what its worth 18 keybaord ; idea its good but don't expect to this keyboard to last long

can use windows 7 but it's not compatible neither win 8 and 8.1 and not win 7 software bad that is if you can run it but with win 7 and after you can't use it. read the description first ; Doesn't live to its name or the hype

Wish I had got multi colors but the green is great.

Cheap, Quiet and wasnt as bad to install all 3 of the ones I ordered after my old fans started to give out

None So far

ZBoard what?


I think the makers should take some input from other-than-FPS gamers to make a useful board for them. The ZBoard has amazing potential... just need to give them a nudge.

The idea of this board is pretty awesome. The keyboards come off of the main board with little difficulty

The feel of the board isn't all that great. Plus is seems to be geared towards very specific FPS games and isn't very modular when it comes to other games. I'm not really a Computer FPS gamer, so until I find a FPS that I like on the computer, this...

Great so far


This was a gift for my brother. He's in love with it and still experimenting with the options. The face-plate he says is amazing, and the gaming section on it helps immensely for FPS's and MOBA's

Awesome control, Great responses

None so far

interesting but disappointing


This is very interest keyboard. You can purchase different keyboard set for different games. But the quality is not impressive. The axis is made by rubber to suit different sets. It is terrible for typing. This may be a good toy, but don't expect more...

Customize set ; Can change for different games ; Two usb

Bad response, too soft

Just awesome


But it if you want an amazing gaming keyboard.

Keys are easily remapped for gaming. Definitely a plus when you switch between games with your buddies. The Z Engine makes it so easy to switch between setups

None really. Wish there was more support for newer games, but as I said, remapping is extremely easy so you can have a setup for each game ready to load up

Drivers keep crashing my computer


Steelseries probably should have checked this board out prior to trying to support a peripheral initially made by another company because there is no support for this device and trying to deal with Steelseries is a joke.

Interchangeable keysets ; FPS and gaming based WASD keys ; Study build

Initial installation crashed my computer. I restarted and tried to install drivers from Steelseries website and it crashed again. Just ended up with a clunky paperweight
