Pros
Extremely Durable
Reliable
Responsive
Cons
none of importance
Summary
I originally purchased this keyboard because it was recommended by two close friends who do a lot of PC gaming.

While the keyboard itself may lack a lot of features like the higher end Logitech G15 with this macro's and lcd, This keyboard is remarkably durable. I play MMO's for a average of 8+ Hours a day and do IT administration/development work on the side so I am very hard on my keyboards.

In the last 2 years this keyboard has been going strong. if you are looking for a rock solid gaming keyboard that just works and performs! Look no further. The back light is a great audition for those who have matching lights in their case and game in the dark, although I barley ever need to look at my keys, and the volume control serves it's purpose.

I think the only true weakness's are that I would like to be able to use it with a KVM switch, adapting it to PS/2 will fail and I have had problems using it with a USB KVM switch.

Pros
Well built.
Mine has blue led's
Heavier than most, nice size.
Cons
None.
Summary
I own 3 of these keyboards.
After heavy use the one on my main gaming computer crapped out. I took it apart and re-seated the 2 connectors, back in business, just like new. This was a very easy fix, took less than 10 minutes. this is a very well built keyboard and designed to last.

Pros
Comfortable, sturdy
Cons
Lighting is uneven, footprint a bit large, some keys starting to rub away
Summary
I was looking for a good keyboard to replace an old Apple USB keyboard I had laying around. Keys are a bit heavy, but comfortable, especially with the wrist rest. Picked it up on sale ($30), so for its price it is a good buy.
Volume keys worked no problem on OS X; swapping key assignments to mimic a Mac layout was easy. Don't use the context menu key at all though, but I guess a Mac user would have no experience with one.
Red glow is a bit uneven across the keys, but I don't really use that anyway. Some people will find it impressive nonetheless.

2-year update: Still going strong, although some keys (S, shift, alt) are starting to wear way, making it harder to read the letter on the key. The backlight shines through the worn letter mark. I still don't like backlit keys, and always turn it off.

Pros
Look good
Back light
Good light
Cons
Not realy ergonomic
Expansive (I pay it 100$)
No custom key
Summary
4 years back, it was a great keyboard, but today you can have someting realy better at the same price (Sidewinder X4)

So take de saitek 2 or the sidewinder, way better than this one.

Pros
Backlight looks cool, keys are smooth, base is solid and heavy enough so as to not move for no reason
Cons
None so far. Some keys don't get the same amount of lighting than others, but it's not my main focus
Summary
Got it on sale for 29.99 back in early january and been using it ever since. I just LOVE the red lava-ish glow (and next to my green LED mouse it looks a little christmas-y XD). So far no paint came off nor did the keys start to loosen. And believe me I type a lot. For the deal, it was an awesome purchase.

Pros
-Simple
-Well lit
Cons
Broken out of the box?
Summary
I have owned so many gaming keyboards. This one remains one of my favorites. No macros , no clutter from media buttons just simple as is. The red goes really well with my rig.

I was really dissapointed when i received mine as a gift and the left shift key did not function at all. So i have go through a difficult RMA. Otherwise this is a great keyboard.

Pros
Backlit
Red color easy on the eyes when dark
2 intensity settings + off setting
Expendable palm rest
Cons
Protruded corners unnecessary
Bottom of keys lit more than the letters
Summary
Overall a decent back lit keyboard for the sale price. However, the four protruded corners are totally unnecessary and takes up space.
Back is decent, however the bottom of keys are lit more than the letters themselves.

Experience: 1 Years
Pros
-Cool design & backlight
Cons
-Arrow + home keys failed after a few months of normal use
-No media/macro keys (apart from volume up/down/mute keys)
Summary
Fulfilled expectations for the first few months, but then for no apparent reason the arrow keys started typing a few random characters, instead of its intended function, making them unusable. The home key was also affected this way. Very odd behavior. For most applications you can just use the numpad, but it's still an inconvenience. Based on this experience, I can't recommend this keyboard.
