Nice Keyboard but Backlight Problems


Like others, I have been unable to reliably get the backlight to work after the computer wakes. Sometimes I get nothing, sometimes I get the backlight but you cannot adjust. In all cases you have to unplug and plug the keyboard to recover. I have spent...

Feels great ; Quiet

Backlight not reliable after sleep

Cool Keyboard


All in all I'm satisfied with my purchase now I need a good mouse to go with it.

It's small and sleek. The led lights in the keyboard have many shades and brightness levels. Soft keystrokes and added function buttons. The lights have a few modes that include breathing, color changing as you type and one that cycles through the colors

It could've been slightly cheaper at 49.90 I'd probably say it's more worth 39.99. The cord could've been slightly longer. It says 512 colors but I'm only seeing various shades of 3. Last some people might be bothered by the ins alt and \ buttons being...

possible durability issue/too heavy handed?


Ability to change the LED colors, and gradations of intensity. Has a nice feel regarding the clickiness of the keys..hard to describe. Slim, felt pretty solid for the price. Inexpensive

Somewhat abnormal layout described in other reviews. have been using for several months to play Skyrim and the "w" key( used very much to move forward in the game) is beginning to feel already sunk in a little and a little lacking in responsiveness...

Awesome and as always, NEWEGG IS BEST.

I love the color options, and being able to color match your tower or mouse. I have large hands and tend to mash keys when playing games competitive. This keyboard is holding up with NO problems

Not a con, but I noticed if my computer is turned off and I strike a key on the keyboard. The keyboard will stay lit up until i unplug it or restart the pc

the colors!!!!


i have an older opteron 185 , a8n sli deluxe, 5870. The keyboard and free mouse combo gave life to my system till pcie3 is out

The amount of colors available are amazing, keys are silent and firm. The keys are well lit under all colors. I like having it on demo mode where the keyboard cycles all 512 colors. it is a small foot print

My Cherry cymotion broke after many years of service. I was looking for an illuminated keyboard that was wireless and solar rechargable. does not exist. I really can't seem to find fault with this keyboard

Beautiful keyboard, but...


The finish loks great, the color changing options are extensive and look beautiful. Five eggs for the look

Several keys are abnormally sized and the key layout is not standard. Not recommended for gaming. Minus 2 eggs for this

Great LED Board


I just bought this board and really like the LED options for colors. I game in the dark and this will be nice to use. I will need to get used to the smaller layout, but its not bad at all, actually I am able to fit my keyboard and mousepad/mouse on my...

Pros: Price, LED Customization, Geeky but cool, Ease of use

Cons: Setup more like a notebook keyboard with num pad, so a little smaller than normal. The issue when going into sleep mode, the customization buttons do not work, but a small gripe as I saved my blue color I wanted and thats what sticks

Great keyboard despite flaws


A great keyboard overall, but I wouldn't recommend if you have small hands. The lights disappearing after going into sleep doesn't always happen and perhaps it's a software issue that could be easily fixed.

This is a very cool keyboard. The multiple colors of the lights make it great to customize it to your computer setup ; I love the key response of this keyboard. I feel like my fingers are flying when I'm typing something out. If the Backspace key...

With Windows 7, sometimes when I go into sleep mode and then wake up, the keyboard lights don't light back up. Only a restart of the computer seems to fix this ; The backspace key is quite far from reach and for some reason the Enter key is huge. You...

Simply Amazing


The keyboard is extremely comfortable to use. The backlight settings are amazing and unique. For the price it is the best keyboard I've ever had experience with

The Backspace key is smaller than normal but it is not hard to adjust to

underrated keyboard


it's like having a full size ibm/lenovo ThinkPad keyboard with an adjustable backlight. backlighting is adjustable in rgb color space--literally 3 switches to control r, g, b . each switch allows 8 levels of brightness for each color. can save made up...

great feel. bright. aquatest gives me n-key=6 and i can confirm all 6 keys in the game cluster can be pressed at once. no ghosting. short key-throw so it feels like a fast reacting keyboard. layout is good -extra large enter key slightly short r-shift...

it was not free
