Pros: Great for budget consumers, durable, made well, standard layout, standard everything.
Cons: Doesn't come in tenkeyless, no color options. no key switch options.
Either Ione/Xenics stepped up their game with these keyboards, or all the reviews on the net were done by some serious yuppies.
The stock keycaps have kept their lettering so far. Far longer than any ABS keycap I have had in the past. The stabilizers are almost silent and very sturdy, large keys are solid with no annoying teeter-tottering.
The cherry blue key switches are the same great quality as ever.
The keyboard casing is very stylish, with a semigloss graphite colored top and thick plastic base. The lock LED's are a nice blue, which isn't too bright or too dim.
If my eyes and ears didn't work, I would not be able to tell this keyboard apart from the Das I owned. However, if my ears did work, I would notice that the Das would be much louder than this keyboard because of it's loud stabilizers.
This keyboard is cheaper than those light up reebok shoe membrane keyboards you guys buy. Give it a shot.
