Pros: Price, build quality, looks, feel, media keys, adjustable lights, palm rest

Cons: Non-programmable, no gaming dedicated keys, no N-key roll-over for gamers

I was sent a review sample from Perixx to judge how it performs in comparison to some of my other keyboards I own.

This keyboard is absolutely excellent at its price point of £35 and more so isn't just good for gaming but also for daily usage.

Its build quality is something that really stands out at first, with functionalities that stick out in comparison to other (more expensive) keyboards:
-It has a knob to adjust the intensity of the lights
-It has media keys (Play, pause, skip, previous, stop, volume up & down and finally mute)
-It has 3 blue indicators for caps, num and scroll lock
-It has 2 forms of adjustment for the keyboard height
-It has an ADJUSTABLE palm rest, which is great for different sized hands
-It has a comfortable palm rest
-It has 3 colours for lighting (red, blue and pink) -> the purple looks very much like pink to me
-The spacebar is very wide and very comfortable to use
-It doesn't need any drivers or software to run it works right out the box with win7 and win 8.1

Due to some of its features, this keyboard is excellent, however the main point is the general feel there is to it when actually typing on it.
The feel is nice and soft, especially quiet and very much comfortable to type on.
I felt as if the keys were super silent and felt soft on touch - which was a nice feel, when compared to other membrane keyboards I've tried.

Overall, this keyboard is excellent - it provides a very comfortable typing experience and yet has features within it, that make it a highly suggested buy from myself.
I can't quite find another keyboard that will be remotely as good as this one at such a cheap price.
Great for gamers, especially during the night - but also excellent for media users like myself. I game, type and listen to a lot of music in front of my PC and this keyboard really hit the nail on the head.

I should also mention I reviewed the UK LAYOUT keyboard.
