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
