"Great keyboard, but..."4.0 starson by luridone
Pros: Great feel, backlighting, solid construction
Cons: Paint on keys wears off
Summary: This is an excellent gaming and general purpose keyboard, and the backlighting really works well. Except once the paint starts to wear off frequently used keys. Saitek was very good about replacing the first one after about 3-4 months had rendered the 'e', 't', 's', 'w', 'l' and a couple of other keys illegible. However, the exact same thing happened with the replacement, so it appears to be endemic to the board. It's still a very good board, but a better paint job would have made it near perfect.
