Closer Look

The left side features 5 dedicated macro keys, something many gamers will love taking advantage of.

Sitting above the numpad region there are dedicated keys for Windows Lock, LED brightness, previous, play/pause, next. There is also a dedicated key to open the SBX software (when available) and a dedicated volume roller.

Sitting at a slight angle, the USB 2.0 pass-through is easily accessible, giving convenient access to a USB port (shame its not a USB 3.0 pass-through however).

The underside is textured and has large non-slip feet. The angle adjustment feet too are wide, ensuring stability while in use.

The switches give a wide mount for the keycaps, reducing keycap movement which ensures an even distribution of force regardless which side the keycap is pressed. The centre of the switch features a bright LED with a diffuser, ensuring well defined mixed colours shine through.
