Good build overall but SPACE BAR needs redesign

 

Space Bar needs more effort to register key strokes frequently. The blue LED in the palm rest part of the keyboard is not bright as some people have complained, It is kust perfect in my opinion.

Inexpensive (Got it for really cheap when it was on "Lets get rid of them once and for a all so no one will complain about the space bar again sale ; The 8 orange keys came with conventional plastic replacements so it can look like a normal keyboard

Spacebar needs more effort than any previous keyboard i had before as I'm constantly seeing myself going back and reinserting blank spaces where it missed them the first time i typed them

Great Case

 

Overall, you cannot beat the price point and the functionality of this keyboard. I still prefer my Microsoft keyboard for touch typing, but for casual gaming (at this price point) it can't be beat. I too think it's unfair to compare this keyboard to a...

Value. Functionality. Rubber keys. Good casual gaming keyboard. Very good bang for your buck

Short backspace key (otherwise the rest of the keyboard functions perfectly for touch typing, etc). Wrist rest is sort of a joke, not a real wrist rest. Short cord length (for me) means plugging it into the front port, which isn't a huge con but it's...

Good for the Price

 

Amazing tactility for a rubber dome keyboard. The wasd and arrow keys feel great

Worked for a while

 

Not worth the money.

Cheap

This keyboard worked for a couple of weeks then started to have problems. It would disconnect constantly from the computer and i would have to unplug it and plug it back in. Tried different ports same problem. Then all of a sudden the + key just...

Good for the price

 

Nine months in still working like it did when I got it. The Rubber keys get dirty quickly buy also and be cleaned fairly easily too. I'm pretty pleased considering the price. If I had known it had a big blue cross lit up on top of it, I would have...

Cheap works pretty well

Big blue cross

I am verry unhappy

 

well it looks cool but i haven't been able to use it

I revived this keyboard and out of the box it looked fine but when i plugged it in the R key and top number row never worked

Decent gaming keyboard

 

Normally like Rosewill gear but this feels a bit too cheap. The orange keys wore off too quickly.

Affordable ; Multimedia keys ; rubbery WASD & arrow keys easy to see and feel (wish they were not so rubbery though)

Bit cheap feeling. Plastic feels thin ; Power button oddly located ; Keys a bit hard to press on occasion
