I just purchased this keyboard, hoping to replace my Saitek Eclipse II gaming keyboard. While the Eclipse is a sound performer, it's rather clunky and I wanted something a little more minimal for my setup. If you're like me, then chances are you're thinking of buying this based on its design. Just like the photos, the product looks great. It's very compact and gives you a lot of extra space compared to most other keyboards.
Whilst there's no denying it's apple-inspired gorgeous looks, I'm finding USING the keyboard a little bit of hit and miss. Whilst I find that it's fine for conventional typing and internet use, gamers may feel a little cheated here with the chiclet-style keys. While they work just fine, you may find yourself not pressing hard enough to get a key stroke. Pressing them also feels quite tough. This is not to say you can't play games comfortably with this, far from it. Just be prepared for a little adjustment whilst you get used to the new style.
My main fault is while the box states it has "multimedia keys", these come only in the form of volume control (increase, decrease and mute). There is a total lack of media control, such as a play/pause, stop, next and previous track. While this lack isn't really a dealbreaker, it would've been a nice touch, especially considering Saitek tend to throw these in on most of their hardware range.
I'm also not convinced that this provides quiet typing. It's not loud, but it's not exactly whisper quiet, either.
So all in all, a solid item. If you're moving from a "full key" keyboard to this chiclet key one, though, be prepared for some adjustment. If you're a gamer like myself, I'd suggest ignoring the good design and look elsewhere.
UPDATE: Two days on and I'm used to the keyboard. For gaming it's just fine. Not great, but fine.
