Just recieved this lovely keyboard today which i won in a competetion with an E-tailer. Previously using a Trust one which i wrote a review about and this could have not come at a better time. Usually i would go for the cheap types as i always figured that they all do the same job. I now understand why its important not to be cheap on the things you use most.
The keyboard is black in colour with a shiny look to it without being cheap looking. You can tell some thought has been put in to the design with it being aimed at gamers. Some of the keys are smaller than the basic keyboards but i prefer this as it's less chunky with the space used well.
Its comes with a couple of basic features such as media buttons (play and pause etc.) which you find on a lot of keyboards. I think the biggest selling point for this keyboard is the ability to use macros so you can record a set of key press's and this is programmed into one of the 6 macro buttons. This becomes useful on games that you may have enter the same keys numerous times. The keys light up red which is a neat feature especially if your using it in the dark. The connection for this is usb for those who need to know although im not sure anybody uses ps2 now.
I really like the feel to this keyboard better than any others ive used so far. There is a wrist rest so if you find your self gaming for hours this will help as your wrist can ache after long use. The keys have a soft touch unlike others where you have to press hard for the key to register. If you are considering buying this keyboard i would recommend it thoughly.
