Good points:
It's great because you can move the number pad to the left hand side for better access to your mouse.
Bad points:
Buttons could be a bit quieter but they are very responsive, which is the main thing.

Confirmed purchaser System Builder Since 1994

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I found this X6 keyboard to be an excellent replacement for my worn out old Razor Lycosa. Keys all perform perfectly with a level of tactileness I had forgotten, Nice! Being able to remove the keypad from the keyboard is an excellent feature making the whole unit much smaller if desk space is at a premium, or can be filled on the left for those who are left handed. Overall a pleasing and modern design and a recommended purchase.
Bad points:
I presume because of the way the keypad can be attached the keyboard there has been a problem with stability if the keyboard is raised up on legs at the back as you can do with most other keyboards. The result is it has to sit perfectly flat on the desk. A small point I know but when one is not used to this it takes a little time to acclimatise.

Backlight is red, I would have preferred blue to go with the led's on my PC and my monitor on button, so now looks unbalanced in the dark. Pity there is no choice in this, but I will get used to it.

Jay, Newark, England

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Lots of controls to assign to your key7 combinations, lights up for night gaming! volume and media controls work with WMP and WinAMP

And it's shiny!
Bad points:
You can see dirt easily because of the lights, and crumbs get stuck in the keys. A lot of the keys are in a slightly different place than most standard dell keyboards, the one I had before, so there was a lot of spelling mistakes until I got used to it!.
