Not the best choice for a gaming keyboard because many key combinations cannot be used. Imagine, you're flying forward (key 'W'), and you want to also reduce your height (key 'X'). All good so far, but then what if you want to turn right at the same time (key 'D' or 'E'). Sorry, you're out of luck. For a keyboard that is clearly marketed at gamers, this came as a massive surprise.

The keyboard is nice enough, very heavy and bulky which is what some will be after, though Windows 7 did not recognise the device and the supplied bloatware was required if you wanted the keyboard to work. A USB cable was used to connect the keyboard to the PC, and this is detachable form the keyboard as well, which unfortunately seems to happen on occasion, often at the worst time!

The packaging is very nice and the "hand fan" was a nice surprise, if not a complete and utter waste of time.

If you're a keyboard gamer then ideally you should be looking elsewhere.

This keyboard shocked me. I haven't paid this much for a keyboard but I'm glad I did. After having problems with keys dropping off other keyboards that are difficult to put back is a pleasure as they can be taken off and put back on with utmost ease with a tool provided with the keyboard.

nice action on the keys, people seem to liken it to a laptop keyboard but it seems like a hybrid to me, there's a nice large action on the keys and the click feels just right and is a joy to type on 30 mins into an assignment.

Comes with a little fan to keep your hand cool. I use it to blow ash away from the keys, it's started to make an irritating noise but so what, the fan is just a gimmick.

Comes with red WASD and up-down-left-right that let the light though a little more so you can find the keys you need easier in the dark.

This keyboard survived a spill of ale in it quite well, none of the buttons are sticky and by looking under the keys I can tell I'm going to need to spill a LOT on this keyboard to cause liquid damage.

Whole heartedly recommend this keyboard to any enthusiastic gamer... especially if you have children around knocking stuff over all the time!

I really recommend the whole TT eSports range, check out their shock headsets and black element mouse. I am in no way affiliated with TT eSports but they've turned me from a Razer fanboy to a TT eSports fanboy over night (hey, I'm open minded like that)

First of all I'd like to mention that my keyboard before this was a 9 year old Microsoft office keyboard that was very nice but loud, clunky and had too many extras I never really used but made the keyboard look good. So, here you are. Shopping around for gaming keyboards. If your anything like me you'll like to do your research before you buy something and you'll make sure you buy what you need. Not what you think you want. So I took the plunge for these reasons. The keyboard is aesthetically pleasing and is without clutter; also I watched a video on youtube that exaplained that the keys are laptop style action but with a solid feel. It is that.

Straight on with it, the back light is great for night time game play. The keys are solid and tightly grouped. The media keys from left to right are Previous track, play/pause, stop, next track, vol up and then volume down.

This keyboard is nicely priced and is well worth the money (if this is what your after) as your getting everything you pay for and you'll use the whole thing. No extra faffy bits that really just add up for more things going wrong.

Not a brilliant review but basically I took this over all of the others. Don't regret it for one second. Typed this review with it and I've loved it.

Any questions ask and hopefully I'll be notified and I'll respond asap.

First review ever.

Speak to you soon.

There are a number of pros and cons for this keyboard (as expected with any product) of which i'll start with below:

Pro's

-Well packaged
-Of a good/high quality
-very quite to type with
-changeable keys colours (red physical WASD and red arrow keys)
-braided cable

Con's
-The macro buttons dont work in quite a large number of games.
-The macro buttons are too far away anyway if needed while pressing WASD
-The additional 2 USB slots only work with very low powered devices (as they are themselves only powered by the keyboard's single USB.
-The fan is honestly a gimmick
-slightly "different" layout of the cap lock key

To sum up the above, the positives are expected for the price you are paying and overall i'm happy with the keyboard after a year of use. Within this year the keyboard has had absolutely no faults and almost looks brand new still. I would avoid this keyboard if the "gimmicks" are making you consider it. The fan is a cool idea but is completely pointless, the USB's integrated will not power anything I have tried in it and the "macro buttons" are too far away and do not work in any game I have tried anyway. What I say about the capslocks key seems to be because it is slightly longer than any other keyboard. Most keyboards I can adjust to instantly but this one took a while and I often hit capslock instead of the A key when I first bought it or when using it after a break from it ( a week or so for example).

Overall: 4 stars and I would recommend this keyboard if you are looking to spend this much, mainly because of the build quality which is excellent. If i'm being honest the "features" (gimmicks like the fan) threw me over the edge to buy this so if I could turn back time I would probably get a slightly cheaper keyboard such as a sidewinder. Would have got a 5th star if the price had been slightly lower or the macros had been better placed/working in all games.
