This keyboard is off the hook for the price. Feel's just like my laptop keyboard but is full size. Nice quite keys and solid build quality. For those of you thinking the g15 and satek keyboards are a little too much you could buy 3 of these for the same price and they are great for gaming imo. No light up keys of course but who really needs those, my crt shines like the sun with no light on in my room. :)

Hey does that thing have an F-Lock key?

The lack of USB support might actually be a plus in some ways. I'm running short of ports and don't want to buy a hub. And the fact it's PS/2 means not having to enable legacy in order for it to work from a DOS boot disk. Kinda convenient in a way. :)

Beware folks... that keyboard is a POS. I owned one and it died on me in a matter of months. It might look cool and have a low price but you get what you pay for so think twice about this one.

hmm well I only just got one so I can't argue with you. I like it so far but why does it have so many great reviews on newegg if it's a pos? it's been offered there for a long time. the low price is because it's OEM and is meant to be sold in packs of 5 not individually.

I can only tell you what my experience was with this product. As per NewEgg ratings, how many times does someone rate a product on NewEgg and then revisit the site to post issues with the product months after owning it? The only good thing is that NewEggs return and RMA policies are top notch so if you do end up having problems they got you covered.

That is the OLD Ultra-X. It's been/being phased out.

I have the newer model named Ultra-X Media. I like it and it's USB 2.0 only.

Dang. With that new one, they moved the \ key to the position I hate. That's the one major complaint I have about the Logisys keyboard I have now. I'll sometimes find myself hitting the \ key when I want to hit backspace. :(

F-lock key? I hate that thing.

BTW good luck finding the new version. I can't find it on pricewatch or pricegrabber and newegg doesn't have it.

Yep. But I can't find it here in the US - and on Logitech's site it doesn't even seem to show up for me.

Argg, I can't stand keyboards with the tiny backspace key and the super huge enter key. Makes me mad.
