Questions and Answers
2008 Mac Pro?
PROS: It's a keyboard.
CONS: LED back lighting is not as advertised at the point of purchase.
PROS: Proper blue switch feedback.
Multiple lighting pattern options. (brightness, custom on/off lighting)
Heavy, durable feel
CONS: RGB light colors are permanent.
Doesn't take advantage of 16.8 million color options for RGB
No software for keyboard
For the price you can't get better, it feels sturdy, works well and they thought of everything for this price base.
My only complaints, is sure it RGB, but each row of keys appears to be stuck at one colour. Would of been nice if I had the option to make the keys either solid green/blue/red/orange instead of the rainbow pattern they had.
Also wouldn't hurt to get some software for this as using the FN key to change the pattern/lights is a bit annoying and would definitely bring this keyboard up to it competitors if it had a software suite to customize on the fly.
PROS: Great price
Does not feel like cheap plastic
Keys respond quite well
CONS: Having to use FN to change colour brightness and patterns
No ability to have a solid green keyboard or the ilk
Lacking software to customize/control directly from the desktop as using FN is rather annoying.
PROS: mechanical switched at a reasonable price, hopefully it holds up over time.
CONS: Colors of individual keys are fixed, you can not adjust the colors at all.
PROS: Feels solid and looks nice.
All keys are in the right place and have the right size.
Good tactile feedback.
Does not need any additional software installed.
A number of predefined backlight patterns with ability to define up to 3 custom.
CONS: The feedback is inconsistent across keys - some are more 'clicky' then the others.
The colors are fixed - having RGB in the description might be misleading.
PROS: -Sturdy as hell
-Clicky feedback great for typing and gaming unless you need to spam keys
-Cool preset lighting patterns to choose from
-Can change brightness of keys and program your own patterns
-Unbeatable value for the money
CONS: -Can't change colors of individual keys
-The clicky response is kind of loud though not as loud as I expected from reading about blues. Makes typing very efficient but could piss off a finicky room mate that doesn't own a set of earbuds!
This keyboard appears to be made very well - it's heavy, so it doesn't slide around on your desk. And I like how it sits higher than the average run-of-the-mill keyboard.
All around, it's a great product and even without the coupon I used, it would definitely be worth it.
