It's quite a bulky job, so ensure you have plenty of desk space to acommodate it, but its size is down to the wrist-support at the bottom of it, the flanges at the side housing 10 of the multimedia/browser buttons & the extended top housing the other 10 (ranging from My Computer, email, calculator etc., to the very handy Sleep, Wake & Power Off buttons. The overall design concept has clearly been dreamt up by a Klingon, with its angular edges & scary logos, but this is no bad thing. Depending on how you feel about Klingons of course.
The Power Off key shuts down your pc in one fell swoop, but bear in mind that the keyboard has a sinister 'Klingon-in-Ibiza Tattoo'-style blue, led-lit, Sharkoon logo at the bottom, which remains lit on powering down the pc, as the keyboard is USB and your USB ports remain 'hot', ie powered up all the time unless you unplug the whole pc. This logo is bright enough to semi-light a room, so could be annoying if your pc's in a bedroom.
The supplied blue rubberised gaming replacement WASD & arrow keys are easy to swap for the standard ones, using the key removal tool supplied and are very useful for FPS/strategy games, but I find that they're a bit odd when simply typing, being larger and the letters non-central on the keys.
The keys are not backlit, but what would you expect at this price point?
The underside front of the keyboard has rubber pads, which effectively stop it sliding about on your desk when you're running away from aliens, dodging shells from a Tiger tank or frenziedly constructing formulas in Excel: so much better than the cheap plastic ones normally associated with low-price keyboards.Read more ›
It's got a nice bit of wrist support at the bottom, a glowing blue Sharkoon Skiller logo, soft easy to press keys that don't get stuck like cheaper keyboards do...
I've not got much bad to say about it. The macros set up nicely and the multimedia keys work well as well. Just be careful not to accidentally hit that 'Power' or 'Sleep' button on the upper right of the keyboard. It comes with Flat Blue Rubber keys which you can use for easy gaming with familiar keys (W A S D Up Down Left Right), because you don't want to miss pressing the right key all because your hand moved away and lost your place on the keyboard. They are nicely sized as well, it helps.
It's probably not the best gaming keyboard, though I've not used any gaming keyboards beyond this, but it is definitely the best keyboard I've ever used. The software can be a bit buggy at times, but you should be able to figure it out in no time at all.
this keyboard uses membrane keys not mechanical switches. this isn't a problem for me as i don't mind either way and they keys have a nice feel to them anyway. in the box you get the keyboard, a baggy with blue rubberised alternate W,A,S and D keys as well as alternate arrow keys and a key puller.
I bought this board for a gaming PC I am building but as it inst finished yet I'm using it on my acer aspire laptop. the keyboard worked straight out of the box as soon as i plugged it in and the drivers had installed
there is a micro disc included which is pretty odd but as far as i can tell it is completely superfluous.
my one complaint with this board is the half sized backspace key, but even having only typed this review on it since i bought it i can already fell myself getting used to it. my personal favorite feature on this board is the three little hot key arrays on the left right and top of the board these allow instant access to "my computer" "calculator" and file search. these also allow you to open up and play next and previous songs on itunes as well as the obligatory play/pause button. there are also keys that take you home in your browser and allow you to skip backwards and forwards between sites.
all in all i am delighted with this board and would recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap, well built , nice looking gaming keyboard.
