Great concept and layout
found none
Love it for the customization for diff games i play. Im a big RPG and play some FPS games. The choices of switching games is easy. I so will buy another if this keyboard dies on me

Experience: 1 Days

awesome keyboard.Nice backlighting.I bought on sale for $29.99.
I bought this keyboard for my son for Christmas. He is using just a standard Generic keyboard at the moment. I am sure all the extra keys and keypad will come in handy for the RPG style games he plays.

Experience: 2 Years
- Gaming area is perfectly laid out; will never use normal WASD again

- Great for RPG and FPS (BF3/4: rebind "spot" to "C" and spam away with your thumb when not jumping/spacebar)

- Keys feel good and are responsive. I haven't had paint/fading issues

*there's a plastic layer under the keys for spills etc... found this out after bricking my first Merc from a spilled drink and taking it apart. Knowing this, I can maybe save it if there's a next time by reacting faster/differently :/
- It's wide and actually overhangs a very little bit on the left of my desk's keyboard tray. Doesn't affect gameplay at all, just an FYI if you have a super tight keyboard space.
- Number pad takes some getting used to with the NumLock key and layout. Not a major deal but was noticeable as I occasionally do excel docs for work on this computer.
I killed my first Merc with liquid, had to buy a second because it's just that good and comfy for gaming... I'm buying ANOTHER now for $30 Black Friday sale as future insurance :D

- Good looks, decent value at $40
- Gaming terrain good for some games
- Lit keys easy to see in dark
- Gaming terrain has NO X or Z buttons
- No dedicated keys for del-ins-home-end-pgup/dn They are shared with the numpad
The concept of the merc stealth is good, but the implementation leaves much to be desired. I felt the game terrain was the main reason to buy, and it is decent, but main drawbacks are no X/Z keys. This is really hard to solve with mapping other keys, it's just not comfortable. The second is that the keys are rather slippery, and I find my positioning slips easily, although perhaps this will change as I wear the key surface a bit more.

As a regular keyboard, I don't like it very much either. I'm very used to having dedicated numpad and control keys, especially delete  key. Since they overlap, it makes it very cumbersome to do any spreadsheet work.

Overall I think this would make a better dedicated game pad peripheral, just the terrain keys + X and Z.

Quality build, nice lighting, USB ports
Poor layout
This is certainly a nicely built keyboard, it has a quality feel to it, and the backlighting is a nice feature. The additional USB ports, plugs for analog headphones/microphone is a nice feature. The problem with this keyboard is it's poor layout... its a huge keyboard, but the number pad is just plain annoying. I will also say the gaming keys on the left of the keyboard can be handy, however it is angled slightly to the left, so it doesn't feel natural using them... I'm unsure who thought this design out, but it could really use some improvements. Overall... it does what it is supposed to, too bad the layout is so poor.

Lots of programmable keys,Good price, well lit keys.
only has USB 2.0 X2 ports. USB 3.0 would have been much better.
I got mine on sale for 49.99 it was the best deal on a gaming keyboard at the time. The keys are lit with nice and bright LED's. It is easy to program the keys with the software that i had to download of there web sit. This is my 12th keyboard in 20 years by far the best one so far. The gaming keys were a bit hard to get used to at first took me about 2 days. Now there is no going back for me ever. Buy this keyboard if your a hard core gamer you will love it.

Experience: 14 Days
Nice side keypad easy reach buttons..
num pad a bit of a mess. Not a big deal but still.
One really good keyboard... Dont think I can ever go back to the old wasd keys...

Experience: 4 Years

Awesome gaming keyboard
Has Illuminated keys
USB ports
Dedicated gaming keys.
Switching num lock key to get the delete  key.
I started out with the original z-board and moved to this because I usually game in the dark.
I am hooked on the dedicated gaming keys.
If you lift you hand from this keyboard you can still find the right keys without looking down at the board.
Any gamer knows that split second of looking down to find the right keys can be very frustrating and lethal in a game.
I hope they are still available when this one gives out on me. :)

Illumination is great. very smooth key operation. Game pad makes game play so much easier.
very wide Keyboard.
I gave up my wireless keyboard for this. Am I ever glad I did. Even though I had a good wireless board, I still notice quicker reaction time with this board.
The Game pad is so nice to use compared to the wasd Keys. They smartly angled the keys for ergonomics.

Comment: Good close-up photos of the keyboard, with descriptions.

Comment: "Was the Ideazon Mercy Stealth Illuminated Gaming Keyboard better than a standard keyboard? For gaming, yes, it was about 100 times better. It has cool features and pretty colors, making it more than worth your while if you are a FPS gamer or MMORPG player."
