it offers a very good build quality
on 30 October 2014
I purchased this keyboard as a temporary replacement for my gaming keyboard, the Microsoft Sidewinder X6, which after serving me well for 4 years, is nearing the end of its life. This keyboard is a very basic one with no bells and whistles. For its price, it offers a very good build quality, standard key layover, and a seperate numeric keypad. There are no media control or internet-related controls, nor or are there any USB ports. It connects to the computer via a USB 2.0 port, but you can also use a USB 3.0 port. This is a good value-for-money product, which, for occasional users, should be a good performer. I am a heavy gamer, and with my usage pattern, this keyboard will not last more than 2 years. By that time, I am hoping to have saved enough to be able to purchase a mechanical gaming keyboard. The only negatives in the keyboard are:
1. Its keys have sharp edges. Having rounded edges would've delivered a better typing experience.
2. Typing fast results in a minor lag between pressing of a key and the related result appearing on the screen. I guess it is to be expected in low-end hardware.
VERDICT: Good value-for-money product, but only for occasional typists and price-conscious consumers.
