    Only USB2.0? Should they not be on 3 or 3.1, these days?
    Keyboard tripod looks nice, but could be delicate.
    I like the volume slider, though would have been equally happy with a dial. At least it's not a roller.
    LED panel will be interesting. I still adore my G19, though, as I can customise an HWMon applet to display whatever I want or run any number of in-game applets, all in full colour.
    Needs more macro keys up the side.

    I actually like the look of this thing. It's not as feature-packed as it could be, and I'm guessing the price and mech switches play a part in that, but if I were in the market I might well look into this one.

    Is it me or does that look...clunky ? Not sleek and smooth, just lots of rough shapes.

    Re: EVGA releases its Z10 RGB gaming keyboard

    So wait, the keys have a wider spectrum than the screen? Bit arse about face?

    One would think premium would be going just a tad further than a membrane color lcd keyboard from nearly a decade ago? (G19 cough cough)

    You'd have to be quite a typist to overwhelm the 480 MegaBits speed of USB2! My rough maths makes that that you'd need to type faster than 60,000 characters per second to exceed USB requirements.

    Number 5 is alive! Need input!

    Forget typing. I'm talking about the pair of USB2.0 ports on the sides, into which I'd want to plug peripherals, phones and other stuff that benefits from 3.1....

    Well yes that, but not just a slab with keys floating on the top like all the others... and plus, this is EVGA, so probably very well built.
