    Re: Reviews - Sidewinder X4 Gaming Keyboard

    I got one myself

    Is this your first review btw Matty? If so then not bad!

    The keyboard does indeed have a nice feel to it but for me I'd rather the keys were slightly more silent. I love my red though so I don't mind the red LEDs as the only colour although I would like it to be brighter but I guess the brightness is just about right. It only lights up the actual key itself though and not in between the keys so that could be a pro for some and con for others. I see you haven't taken any pictures in the dark so I'll include one for people that want to see how it is.


    Didn't realise my keyboard had that many fingerprints My camera makes the glows a bit too bright though.

    All in all I'd pretty much agree with your review. The anti ghosting is pretty important for FPS gamers though I've heard as they need to somehow jump, croutch strafe and whatever else at the same time, I'm no FPS gamer myself so I'm not sure how important it is.

    I haven't used the macro keys so can't comment on it either.

    I've got one major thing I don't like about the keyboard though, it doesn't seem to be responsive until the BIOS fully boots so I cannot press 'Del' and get into BIOS with this keyboard, odd.. No biggie though.
