Rated 5 out of 5 by woven nice keyboard
cheap as heck and work smoothly. Not mechanical, but that would be asking a bit too much for the price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SyntaxTerror Okay for a budget gaming keyboard
This is my first gaming keyboard. I was originally going to spend a little more and get a refurbished Corsair keyboard but as I'm not a heavy PC gamer these days, I decided to get a cheaper board and if I use the macro keys a lot then I can go for something better next time.
First of all, the keyboard feels well built and has a reassuring weight about it. The rubber feet at the bottom stop it from sliding.
A criticism of one of the boards I looked at by other owners, the Coolermaster Devastator, is also prevalent here. BLUE BACK LIGHTING DOESN'T WORK. It's too dark. At certain angles, the
illumination fades and you can't see parts of the letters at all.
The font used doesn't help either.
The keys themselves feel cheap-ish - or at least the rubber domes or whatever it uses do. Again, it's an angle thing. If you're typing directly above the keys then there's no problem. It's not too bad. Hit one at a slight angle and there's a bit too much resistance. A few times I've hit two keys in quick succession, only to find that the letters have registered the wrong way around because of unexpected resistance in the first key pressed.
All in all, it's an okay keyboard for an introduction to gaming keyboards. You get what you pay for so I'd recommend saving for something better.
