quite simply, this keyboard is as practical as it looks stylish. i twinned this with a blue copperhead on a black case that was blue lit, and the first thing people always comment on is this keyboard. Sensitive, the anti-ghosting is a wonder and the silenced keys are just that, even if used heavy handedly.
The downsides however is the fact it has only 1 usb on the back, the mike and headphone jacks require plugging into your soundcard instead of traditional speakers or mike. I also find the keys are a little close set at times, Also the lights tend to randomly switch off/go to AWSD/off but could just be that i play near a window and changing light sources activates the touch pad for the lights. which brings me neatly to another little problem - the fact it appears to randomly call up media player on the touchpad located at the top right - but again, could be light messing with it.
all in all, a great keyboard but it'll never replace skills!
word of warning: Made for vista so may or may not work on xp well
