Quality of a hardware part is very good. But software part is not so good. Firstly, the configuration application is for windows only( and look like it's written in VB )) ). Secondly, you can not setup keyboard to sent keys like F13-F24 and so on. But there is a trick. The firmware in fact can send any key code, but you have to patch the firmware manually. Overall, i like this keyboard.
Love it. But the aluminium case had a little scratch on the top
One of the best products I have purchased, For Gaming where multiple key press is needed to perform a single function, this little item is perfect.
quality of all the components is outstanding and very easy to program.

10 out of 10.
Work Great when I am doing digital painting with this, the 8 keys does provide a better workflow for my work.
The only slight bummer is that I did wish the software could assign multiple key combination to one button instead of single key, because I am 2 buttons short on my workflow which would have been perfect. Overall still a great product!

Edit: New V2 firmware and programming app now allow you to assign your own key combinations and macros. Perfect!
