Still brilliant after 2+ years

Had this keyboard 2 years and some, still love it and its working great. I have gamed on it every day and find it very comfortable to type/game on. Awesome features now enhanced with the Microsoft mouse and keyboard centre (You will get it as standard from windows updates when plugging the keyboard in) Backlight is still shining bright.

I have had no chips/wear of keys and as I have mentioned It has been used for gaming nearly every day for over 2 years now

Couldn't recommend higher but id give it 10/10


Compact & classy piano black

Nice looking keyboard, very shiny piano black finish which obviously picks up the fingerprints but easy to just wipe off once in a while.

Matt textured wrist rest not quite in keeping with the glossy black theme and a little sharp at the edges but grows on you.

My keyboard had the "+" and "Enter" keys physically reversed on the numberpad, "+" was bottom right where the "Enter" key resides. The functions worked in the correct way but the keys were backwards, flipped them off easily enough though and swapped them over into the correct location, no damage done.

Compact & classy, recommended!

A very good keyboard

Got this keyboard yesterday orginally was going to get the Zalman K400G but they have had none in stock so after a long long time of looking for a replacement keyboard i came across the side winder..

Simple plug n and play keyboard the led back lighting is a really nice touch not to bright but not to dark on highest setting then installed the driver very simple to do so.

They keys are closer together which is something you will get used to but it didn't take me long at all. The wrist pad is actually very comfy its not going to be for everyone but its a nice touch.

My only complaint is the escape key which is REALLY small compared to a standard size one and it is a bit further up then my old keyboard but again i will get used to it fairly quickly.

All in all a great keyboard to type on in everyday computing and excellent for gaming.I did buy this based on these reviews and for

Does The JOB!

Good keyboard, some keys take a bit getting used to! Does the job well and comes with some over features. All you need for a keyboard.

OcUK thank you for great fast delivery!

Good buy

A very good keyboard, the keys are slim and it feels solid overall. The key layout however is somewhat different, due to the macro buttons, each key is one over from what you'd expect, and so initially it's difficult to type, but all it takes is getting used to.

Great Choice

Very pleased with this keyboard! The rough grip at the bottom of the keyboard is extremely comfortable. This was plug & play for me, drivers were installed automatically from windows update, macro keys work well. The keys are ten times quieter than my previous keyboard which is a piece of junk. I didn't think I could purchase something of such quality at this low price.

Great Keyboard

Just got this after having to sell my Razer Black Widow Ultimate for being to loud on key noise. I bought this based on reviews and am not disappointed. quality build and typing is not noisy. in fact i find it better to type with than the Razer. Not tried all the functions yet but i can't fault this keyboard in anyway. Only thing i would have liked is changing colours but that's just a aesthetic point as most of my stuff is blue led.

Good keyboard

Good keyboard, excellent quality and build, Looks very stylish and the brightness changer is always a welcome bonus.

The palm rest i was fair worried about as its none-removable but it works out nicely - (Gets dirty easier then others i have used)

- Cheap as well. glad i didn't have to fork out an extra 50.

Only real downside i have noticed is it catches fingerprints/smudges VERY easily and is noticeable.

Rob 2012-01-19

Very Impressed

Very happy when i received this. Out of the very nice packaging i was amazed at how nice this looks. The keys are a good size and make a very pleasant sound.
I was also surprised at how easy the macro keys are to set up

Well worth purchasing.

Great for Left Handers who use cursor ke

Great Keyboard for South Paws, Best Ghousting I have came across on a keyboard yet. Great price from Overclockers.

Cons: Buttons chip and wear overtime.

Fraser 2011-09-21

Very good

Its very good, nice keys, lights (? I don't know why when gamers don't look at the keyboards) and macros (I don't use them but there ok.

The feel is important and it feels well made and nice to type on.

Problems are the arm rest is a bit short (big hands but still)
The media keys cause random typing at points. (Types it's self)

Richard Todhunter 2011-09-19

love it

Amazing keyboard. I swapped this for a Saitek Eclipse II and I have no complaints. The arm rest is perfect and the keyboard itself is compacted, but not too much, so the key's feel perfectly spaced from each other.

The backlight is about twice as bright as the Eclipse, but it does only come in red.

Overall, I'm very pleased I made the switch.

Great KEyboard

Nicest Keyboard i have ever used.

NO Ghosting issues.

Macro's are simple and intuitive.

Brightness adjustment is nice.

Simple drivers.

Only downside is mediakeys only work with some mediaplayers (such as VLC) when they are the active window

Mohammed Sayfur Rahman 2011-02-02

An excellent keyboard!

Build quality is excellent, keys have a nice feel to them and easy to type with.

Design is slick and stylish, clearly aimed at gamers, but not overdone or tacky. The glossy surface looks cool but catches fingerprints easily.

The red backlight is bright enough without being annoying. There are four brightness levels (max, med, min and off) which is controlled via a dedicated key.

There are plenty of extra media keys (volume, play, etc) including a set of six keys down the left of the keyboard which can be programmed to carry out macros or open programs, websites, etc. There's also a keyboard profile selector key which can be used to switch between three different profiles for your keyboard, whereby each profile has a different key assignments and macros.

There is also a macro record button which can be used to record macros to the six programmable keys, on the fly.

The included software is also simple and easy to use for macros, prgorammable keys, etc.

A good 9/10 for me!

This was a very plesant product to use, plug in and play, I'd suggest it to any buyers, With it's built in underglow on the keys, it's brillaint to see in the dark, this has a dimmer effect, Nice wrist wrest. for easy typing.
