Pros: comfortable, calculator button, quiet

Cons: failing after a while, media buttons are laggy

I liked this keyboard at first, but now it sucks. Buttons are starting to stop working and when I'm typing it cuts out for a couple words sometimes, and sometimes I press a button and it keeps typing it like I'm holding it down (it is not physically stuck or anything) I've never spilled anything on it, I'm sure there are some crumbs in it though. I don't remember how long I've had it, I think it's been a year or 2, and it just started messing up a month or so ago, so if you're using it for a short time or don't mind replacing it, it will be fine though. Personally I would rather just a better keyboard that will last.
The only thing I reallllllllllly will miss when I get a new keyboard is the calculator button. Whenever I'm on my laptop I try to press the calculator button and it's not there, it annoys me.

Pros: Curved keys for quicker typing, Ease of modification, Spill resistant, Good size keys

Cons: It doesn't give me A Cheeseburger, Dr. P, & French Fries.

This keyboard has been in my possession since May of 2011. It has been great for GAMING, Average use, and office typing. This keyboard is also Spill resistant (I've spilled coke on it three times now), and it still works like the day I bought it. Keys are soft, queit, and decent sized. The curve is to fight against Carpal Tunnel, so that's good, and It's easier, and quicker to type, than with an average keyboard. I type 70+ words a minute, and this helps improve accuracy, and speed. Especially since, I'm always on a computer, and because of the CHEAP price for a good keyboard. Also has a Little calculator button (And yes, it actually brings up the Calculator when you hit it!).

I recommend this product. 5/5 Review. I also modified it, and it was very easy. Remove bolts on bottom, take keys you want out of it, and then paint them, and then re-assemble. I painted these keys: W, A, S, D, Esc, Spacebar, Backspace, Enter, Alt, Tab.

It works well, especially since I modified it so I can see in the dark.

Buy this keyboard if you are a hardcore gamer, and an avid typer. thumb.gif

Pros: I've got 4+yrs on it, everything works

Cons: I don't like the curve.......

It's been a champ for a very long time, I've never had any problems with it, but I don't really like the keys, they're spread out fine, but the curve and the width of some keys....I just don't like it

I'm using it because I feel bad buying a new one without having reason to, came with a desktop I bought a while ago, I would never really recommend this to anyone for any purpose other than "I need something cheap that will last".

It'll go on forever if you treat it like any other keyboard, just don't buy it expecting your jaw to drop.
