Defective case and electronics

 

Bad quality control on this unit. Other reviews I have seen have been positive, so maybe I just received a dud. "Beer Drinking Fridays" at the factory or something... I am trying a Das Keyboard instead & hopefully have better luck.

Felt good to type on and the USB hub worked

Plastic top not properly glued or connected to a corner of the aluminum base. The num & caps lock LEDs came on for a second when first plugged in and my mouse worked in the USB port, but the keyboard did not function and LEDs did not work thereafter

SIIG JK-US0412-S1

 

I personally love the scissor switch feeling on a keyboard. I tend to type so much faster on them than other mechanical switch or membrane types. I got this keyboard because I needed a new replacement for my old Bytec keyboard I got at F r y 's for $15...

Solid. Aluminum body. Excellent tactile feedback with scissor switches. Build in USB hub. STANDARD key layout

keyboard is elevated just a little too much where the USB ports are for my liking. No adjustable height/angle. USB ports are USB2 only

So far it's brilliant

 

I'm one of those guys who literally had a large box full of the old IBM/Lexmark 101 key keyboards and got them rebuilt as needed until the compatibility issues got too annoying. This is the first keyboard I've ever come across that's actually better...

Only had it a few days so reliability is still unknown ; Fantastic feel to the keys, absolutely precise and absolutely consistent ; Very high quality build, feels rock solid. Heavy enough ; A product has to really exceed my expectations to get 5 stars...

Not a con, but as others have mentioned the blue LEDs for Num Lock/Caps Lock/Scroll Lock bleed over, so if the center LED is on (Caps lock) it looks like it's on "high beam" and the other two are on "low beam ; It's completely harmless but it does...

Piece of Junk

 

I've used another major brand of keyboard for many years. The last one lasted 11 years and still works - the letters are just wearing out. With all the good reviews, I thought I'd try to heavier aluminum keyboard. My mistake. JUNK!!!!!!!

Great feel. I loved it. Until

I've used this keyboard about 5 weeks. It arrived, and the left side ALT key was sticky, especially if I did not hit it dead center. OK. I decided to live with that and see it how worked out ; Yesterday, the CAP LOCK light quit working - OR - when it...

Just get it. I'm glad I did.

Solid feel and weight. Great quality ; Shorter keystroke length, Laptop-ish. Thats what I was looking for ; Keys strike well and true

Not as quiet as it could be, but its worth it for the feel ; No back-lighting. But you know that already

Great Keyboard

 

I purchased this keyboard looking for a replacement to a great keyboard I had that got wet ; Exact same touch, wonderful to use for long periods of time, 2 usb ports work great with Logitech track ball and one additional wireless mouse ; Sturdy,...

No cons with this keyboard

What I was looking for

 

Several years ago I was looking for a keyboard with laptop-style "scissor switch" keys that was full size and was a native Windows keyboard. It took tons of searching and I eventually found one from a somewhat sketchy site. In any event, it cost about...

Exactly what I was looking for, solid construction, laptop-style "scissor switch" keys, full size keyboard, native Windows configuration (as opposed to Mac). I've only had it for about half a day, but all I need to know I can tell quickly. See other...

It's wired, which obviously I knew going into it and doesn't really bother me... it's more that I'd prefer to at least have the option to buy this same keyboard in a wireless version. Not really a con for this keyboard, but a con for SIIG not offering...

Perfect Programming and Gaming Keyboard

 

The actual manufacturer of this keyboard is Precision Squared (pstc.com.tw) and they make fantastic scissor-switch keyboards. If you want a Mac-layout keyboard, check out the MacAlly IceKey -- it's basically the same keyboard, but with a plastic body.

Scissor-switch keys, which provide the most comfortable typing experience ; Perfect keyboard layout: standard-size backspace and backslash keys, and no silly L-shaped enter key ; Seems pretty durable to me: I've been using it for several months...

I'd rather have play/pause than sleep in the top right ; It probably doesn't have any special anti-ghosting technology, but it works fine for gaming with WASD and DCAS key layouts
