The keyboard has a solid feel to it and the keys are as expected. The backlighting is quite nicely done and very even. I don't notice any bleeding even when looking dead-on.

I haven't tried charging many things with the hub but I am pretty sure it would run some of my peripherals and memory keys. Phones and high-end devices are recommended not to be used and I already have my phone charging from my monitor hub.

The audio pass-through is very good. I haven't had any chatter or audio fidelity issues while listening to music or gaming thus far. The cables are braided and very heavy duty.

The keys are a little louder than I would like but I am ok with them for now. I am a touch-typer so it's not too bad and I am considering getting some O-rings to help out.

All in all, excellent product.
I have been in the market for a mechanical keyboard for quite some time, found this peripheral at a local PC shop and decided to do some research on it first. I read that this keyboard is actually only a few months old in the market which explains the lack of reviews on the keyboard itself.

I decided to take the plunge and order the Keyboard.

From the unboxing i could tell this keyboard was going to be something special, the box itself came in a nice finish and excellent safety foam placement. Wrapped neatly in plastic and the extra usb ports, mic jack and headphone jack all were properly covered.

Typing on this was a breeze and it came with a free comfortable wrist guard.

Each key is indeed individually lit with an LED and on top of that the keys themselves are laser etched. That means they keys cannot be Scratched off from wear. The website provides replacement keys and switches in the case of rough handling. The LEDs have 3 brightness settings and a pretty cool Fade effect setting.

You can turn on GAME mode and this keyboard will light up this G icon which means its activated and the windows key is DE-Activated.

It is a one of a kind keyboard in that is the only USB keyboard you can find in the market that offers PERFECT FULL NKRO! a feature normally covered by PS/2 port keyboards.

Overall great price for a keyboard that looks to last its user over 5 to 10 years EASY. Sturdy design, quality LED keys, it has it all!
