Tom, Lancashire I take Paracetamoxyfrusebendroneomycin daily

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The keyboard is sturdy and well made, the back lighting stylish and useful. You still get full functionality for gaming, coding and typing despite the keyboard's compact nature.
Bad points:
I primarily use Ubuntu and had great problems trying to get this keyboard working with it, the anti-ghosting feature seems to use an extended character code set that Ubuntu doesn't associate with the keyboard's device ID. However, after some research into the problem I discovered that the anti-ghosting feature can be turned off by pressing shift-ctrl-alt-n and back on again with shift-ctrl-alt-g. The keyboard forgets this setting if it loses usb power, so you have to preform the keypress on each boot, which is a little annoying. Windows users shouldn't have this problem as Windows is too dumb to be surprised by the extended character code set.

Also, the key strokes could be a little quieter.

Elijah,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Bright light, no ghosting and it does everything you'd want it to.
Bad points:
Layout is a bit cramped and will probably take some getting used to. The bright light can be a double edged sword as there's no way to adjust it.

john,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Its a small back lit, wired keyboard that doesn't break the bank which is exactly what I was looking for.
Bad points:
Even though I was looking for a small keyboard the keys are a little close together. I find my self hitting the wrong keys now and then, however this is getting less as I get used to it. The lights don't turn off when the computer does so you either have to press the button to turn them off or turn the switch off at the back of the power supply. Would have been nice to get rid of the number pad at the side and have some media keys instead.

Not using this as a gaming keyboard, I just wanted a compact backlit keyboard for general use. capslock & numlock lights,keys feel like they come from a more expensive keyboard. plug & play install on windows 7 64bit.
Bad points:
As yet to find any.

Mark, St Albans Data scientist

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Compact, lights under keys
Bad points:
No gaps at all between the different sections eg around the arrow keys. As a touch typist I normally type without looking down at the keyboard but I can't do that on this because any time I need to use the cursor keys or anything like that I have to look.

Ray, Worcester Professional genealogist.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Great layout,
illumination is great too.
Bad points:
Says "quiet keys" not true,
keys are quite deep, would prefer a more shallow keys on a keypad,
but that is just my preference.
