I've had mine for 2 years and I don't mind not being able to see the keys since I took typing classes and can find the keys without looking at them, but I bought this particular keyboard solely for how it looks and the light up gimmick so it is disappointing that it's not made of more durable, lasting material.
At this point I’ve also had it for nearly 4 months and it stills works as good as it did out of the box.If you don’t want to shell out for one of the more expensive keyboard brands right away, this is most definitely a great alternative.
But for slight changes of 35% or so at a time it's great.I can type faster on this keyboard than on any other board I own so I really recommend this if you are looking for a good typing experience.I am a gamer as well and as such I don't game on this keyboard as it is in my office but I imagine it would be fine for some light gaming.
This keyboard feels great to type and to game on.
On my Corsair K70 that i just fried, i would turn the lights down to about as low as they could go and this board is just right in that category which is good because they only do on and off.but to get to my real issue with the board.
Really weird as I've never used a keyboard that had this happen after time.
I've kept the keyboard in an office the entire time that I've owned it and handled it gently so I'm sure it's not some thing that I caused.
I purchased it back in Sept '18 because I needed a backlit keyboard and thought this would do the trick.
It has great backlit keys and I like the volume control.
I'm not sure why this is billed as a "Gaming Keyboard" as it has ZERO gaming features - No macro keys, no custom programmable options, no multimedia function controls (other than the volume knob) and the keystroke response is no better than any mushy sub $10 keyboard pulled out of a bargain bin.I'll give it a huge plus for the rotary volume potentiometer and it's asthetics , but I have to ding it for not having anyway to adjust the brightness of the blue backlighting, and for the very poor wrist pad attachment mechanism.
