5.0 out of 5 stars Affordable backlit keyboard 21 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
The narrow size was an important factor here for me because of the desk size restriction I have to work within.
Only 2 reviews when I bought mine but took a punt as price was reasonable.
First impressions are it is not flimsy and grips the desk well via ample pads and padded feet too.
The wrist pad section is not padded but a a matt finish plastic matching the frame, so no annoying reflections and does its job as you would expect.
Once you install the software from CD it rests in your notification area and lets you do way more than I need.
The backlit feature can go to ANY colour you want basically and is crisp and clear. I set mine to green but when dormant it drops to a lower red and then after a delay no light . All the querty, number and function keys (and two side light bars) light up in your chosen colour, except the space bar which is not backlit. The logo cycles colours but doesn't distract. The dial for brilliance or push for volume is blue lit round the rim and the Num Lock, Caps Lock etc is blue to the back right.
The keys are deep enough to have a traditional feel without being too clunky. Precision in game not a problem and as well as the scope to configure any of 37 buttons with presets, you can also make your own macro for a key.
The windows key can be just that, or can be a toggle between gaming configuration (with keys assigned as you like it) and standard setup.
Hope the review helps you decide

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Keyboard But.. 5 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
good keyboard - as others have mentioned - bit cryptic installing and configuring.
is uk layout.
backlight functions are good - all keys with even light, easy to adjust brightness and colour.
functionally it is good, works, comfy palm rest etc

however the A E keys on mine after 2 months have lost the outline of the letters, and the spacebar was also worn through the black covering so can see an LED underneath it. I can see the edges of other letters starting to "fade" away as well

3.0 out of 5 stars Good hardware. Perplexing software. 26 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
As always this item arrived very fast indeed from Amazon :)

This is actually a very nice piece of hardware. Solidly built with a decent key action. The backlight has adjustable colours and brightness. It is a full size keyboard but has a small footprint. The wrist rest is detachable thankfully as it is of no use to me. The built in USB port is a very nice addition as it means pen drives, phones and media players can be connected without having to muck around with the ports at the back of your PC. And, very importantly, this keyboard is a UK, as opposed to US, keyboard.

Installation isn't straightforward though. I had to uninstall my previous (vanilla) keyboard from Windows Device Manager then plug in the Perrix and restart my PC. The driver and software isn't automatically installed and needs to be run from the installation CD. After a reboot the Perixx was working as a standard keyboard but I still needed to access the software to customise the keyboard's appearance and functions.

The software is beyond cryptic, made worse by the appalling standard of the manual. Perixx is a German company I believe so I was prepared for some dodgy English grammar but the manual doesn't really have any structure at all. It doesn't explain how or when to use keyboard layers, how to write or assign macros or even how to access the keyboard customisation software in the first place. Bizarrely, the software is accessed via an icon for the PX-3000 driver that appears in the Windows Start menu. I found that periodically clicking the icon would fail to bring up the keyboard settings and I would have to reinstall the software. When inside the customisation software you are pretty much left on your own to figure out how to use it. There are no tool tips or internal help resources.

Arrived very quickly, 3 days before expected delivery date. First thing you notice, its not quite fully mechanical. i find the keys quite mush sort of. not quite the up OR down thing i was expecting. then the programmable thing is a difficult thing to get the hang of. first of installing the drivers wasn't straight forward as it didn't really tell you what to do. then once you have downloaded the driver you then need to search through files on the disc to find the actual applet thing to let you program the darn thing. if you can get the hang of the programming and are a serious gamer who needs all sorts of things set to different keys on the keyboard this is a nifty thing. ooh and if you want to type in the dark. the backlighting has an adjustable nob thing on the top left and works the volume aswell so be careful not to blow your eardrums trying to made the LEDs stand out more

Great quality keyboard - especially for the price! Great customisation options. Could be mistaken for a £100+ Keyboard!

3.0 out of 5 stars Initial impressions 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase
I've had this keyboard for a couple of days amongst another couple I ordered in order to find one I liked. The layout is excellent - no wasted space and a lovely large wrist rest plus a USB port which is rare for a membrane keyboard. Backlighting is subtle but effective although as others have said, the software can be a little laggy and isn't very polished. However it does work and allows you to configure a surprising number options as well as the backlight colour. However, the only and sadly pretty big issue I have with the PX-3000 is that keys are incredibly loud. It's akin to a mechanical keyboard except it's rather cheep feeling without the smooth tactile feel. This is a great shame as otherwise, it's perfect if like me you don't like mechanical keyboards. I've instead opted for a Mad Catz V5/Saitek Cyborg V5, which has keys that are much quieter although sadly it lacks the USB port and software.
