This is a fantastic keyboard. I love the chunkier style keys over the flatter ones that seem to be the most popular ones on the market at the moment which feel like they have the perfect resistance and are also nice and quiet.
The backlit effect is really nice too, and I love the fact you're able to change the colours to a decent selection of your own choice.
I only have a couple of issues with it. I personally would have liked a slightly higher raised position, and the feet only have one position. Up, or down. They don't extend like some keyboards I've seen which kind of surprised me for a keyboard of this cost.
Secondly, as others have mentioned, the media keys are quite stiff and require a firm press in just the right position to get to work.
Finally, and this isn't really going to be much of an issue for some people, the keyboard requires 2 USB ports to function. I understand that this will be because the lights and keyboard itself require separate power supplies, but it wasn't something I was expecting. Since I'm using a keyboard, mouse and monitor to extend a laptop (since I don't have a desktop), this means 2 out of only 3 USB ports are used up straight away, and they don't seem to work in a USB hub expander.
Like I say, those minor issues out the way, this is a fantastic keyboard that I'm very happy with.
