Great keyboard March 1 2011
By Justin - Published on Amazon.com
Ignore the previous reviewer; unless you can't copy paste a specific alt character in WoW only (which by rights you shouldn't even be able to do) there is NO reason to not love this keyboard. It's easily customizable, comes with the default keyset (for everyday applications) and is extremely well made. I'm not going to sit here and list every feature; that's the manufacturer's job. What I will say is that this is simply put an amazing keyboard all around.

Overall I like it Oct. 4 2011
By Karen R. Swanay - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
OK...I like this keyboard. What I don't like is that it has high functionality but almost no ability to use it because the company offers NO support and NO instructions. When I got this keyboard I had to spend a lot of time searching the internet for other user advice to even install the thing. The level of "support" is absolutely none and that is inexcusable. The company doesn't help at all. So although it has the ability to keybind and support elaborate macros, I do not know how to make it do those things because there is no information telling me how. "Epic fail" on that.

The one thing I love about this keyboard is the swap out keysets because I can clean my keyboard like never before and like we all want to do. No more tipping it over and shaking it, cans of compressed air etc... I just snap out the one key set and clean underneath and I can wipe the keys down while they aren't connected so no worries about damaging anything. That is a bonus I hadn't even considered before purchase. And it's the only reason that I gave this thing as many stars as I did. Were it not for that, this might be a 1 star review.

And the principle thing that drags it down is the total lack of information leading to me having paid extra for a product to do something I need it to do, but can't get it to do. Very frustrating. I have no complaints about the quality and durability at all though.

WoW Gaming Keyboard July 23 2011
By Yolanda L. Madrid - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This keyboard in all honesty appears to be a World of Warcraft Gamers Dream Keyboard. I know it appeared that way to me. However, my initial enthusiasm blinded me to the fact that this is in no way functional to its optimal user capacity with a Mac Operating System. This device is ONLY compatible with a Windows OS. I found this to be utterly disappointing. I would think since the game is available to both operating systems that the devices carrying their namesake would be interfaced to function properly with both OS's. (Even though I understand that the makers are indeed independent). For my current gaming usage I find that this keyboard only rates @ most 2 Stars for me. If in future SteelSeries can overcome the interfacing issues presented for optimal functionality with a Mac OS, I would indeed attempt to repurchase and reevaluate my current rating, but as it pertains to my current experience, 2 Stars: "I don't like it"; is the highest mark I can give at this time.

great buy, dvorak users will love it too March 28 2011

This was definitely a good purchase. The extra keys are really useful, and it was easy to pop the keys and remap in Dvorak mode (and it comes with an extra keyset for easy switch to qwerty) worth every penny.

Big improvement from its predecessor Zboard! Dec 22 2011
By Austin - Published on Amazon.com
Upon Steelseries' acquiring of Ideazon there was a decent product out there on the market called a Zboard. Don't get me wrong, I've used both a Zboard and the Shift. (The Shift for about a year now) Steelseries looked at the Zboard and thought: What things could we make better? Firstly, the Zboard always felt cheaply made. And it was. Steelseries took that into account when designing the Shift. The overall build quality when holding the Zboard in one hand and the Shift in the other is a big difference. The idea that you can remove keysets from the Shift are what makes this product have so much potential. I for one like the fact that you remove the keyset, and gently shake it out to get any loose crumbs out that might have fallen down into the keyset over time. The programmable macros on the right side of the keyboard are very handy in all situations when playing World of Warcraft. For example: If you are in a raid or dungeon, pressing the emote bar 2 button will light up your emote LED orange and your 2nd emote bar (which replaces the F1-F12 keys) will allow you to place raid targets on monsters in a fairly quick fashion. The keyboard comes preinstalled with the standard QWERTY keyset and the Cataclysm keyset it stored nicely in a plastic sleeve. The overall packaging of the keyboard adds to the WOW factor of the product. This is one of the best products I've used in terms of keyboards and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to buy a price competitive gaming keyboard for use with World of Warcraft.
