4.5 Almost Perfect for the Price Point. RichardN123 | 08/06/2012 | See all RichardN123's reviews (3) I recieved this keyboard just 1 day after ordering it so well done PLAY. I have been using it for two days now, for gaming and typing and I can say I am very pleased with it. I ordered this because of its low price point, it seems to be one of few quality keyboards sub 50 pounds. And it is great!. When first starting to type I fumbled a bit and pressed the wrong key quite often, but im coming from a 17" laptop keyboard so it is quite different. Im also quite a heavy typer so I wanted something that would give me a good amount of depression while not having to buy an expensive mechanical keyboard. The keys have a good amount of travel, not shallow and not extremely deep. This is good for gaming as the keyboard is rubber domed so you have to press it most of the way for it to register. My typing speed seems to have increased a small amount after moving from my laptop and I am mis typing less and less as I get used to it. Whilst gaming in CSS I have found the keyboard to be very good. The keys are easy to press and are accurate giving me just the amount of activation time I want which has made a difference in my scores. There is also a set of 6 macro buttons which have three modes so effectively 18. I use these for opening two programs at start up and four to buy preset weapon choices in counter strike. Its very easy to setup and works a charm everytime. The keyboard also has a red backlight, which has three adjustable levels which I always leave on full, its barely visable in the day but in the dark it looks great and helps loads with typing. There are also an added calculator button which I find handy above the numbpad and also the usual media controls which I have had no problems with. So all in all a great keyboard, it has some decent features for the casual and maybe slightly hard core gamers out there and it is half the price of some of the big name keyboards from razer and the like. A definite buy if you're on a budget or just want to get a decent keyboard for everyday PC use. My only problem with the keyboard is that when raised on its back feet there isn't much of a difference, It would be nice if there was a higher setting but Im just clutching at straws really.. Love it!
