Any reviews?
Does this have n-key rollover

Looks cracking for the money. Not much info about on the web and only a couple of user reviews... nothing about on the official website either.
Reviews for other Element keyboards seem to vary between OK and poor - faulty keys, dodgy backlights etc. - all the stuff you'd expect of a cheap offbrand keyboard really.

I do like how that looks - it would suit my desk rather well. Despite typing a lot I've never completely fallen-in-love with mechanical keyboards - a decent rubber-dome keyboard is fine for 99% of people but not all rubber dome keyboards are decent, of course (indeed, not all mechanicals are great either!)

This isn't an NKRO but 99.9999% of people don't need that - they seem to have prioritized what they call 'gaming keys' for non-ghosting - that will solve 99% of people's problems but then 99% of people don't have a problem (they just want mechanical and NKRO because someone told them they should want it)

I might order one and try it out - nothing to lose really. Only weirdness is the non-ISO layout and the way the ISO |\ key is on the left shift for - what reason I can't even imagine?

Ugly as f*ck.
doesnt have a pipe key ¦

It's a UK ANSI keyboard - most UK keyboards are ISO (pipe key, larger ENTER key etc.)

I do wonder why the pipe is on left-shift tho, that's just odd!?

I have a pipe to sort your blockage gl0ckage

Love this, heat added, if it was wireless I would be in
Their website (http://www.elementgaming.com/) doesn't show this keyboard - it does show that 'Element Gaming' are based in Goole, East Yorks tho (not far from eBuyer then!)

I bit of Googlery gave me a product code (ikb-9500) - and from that I found the manufacturer of this thing!!

Looks big... might get something without a numpad
No volume control?
What's a ghost key?
I've got a similar Ajazz keyboard, after 10mins the leds switch off. At night, because the leds are off, you end up hitting the wrong key for the first letter.

What's a ghost key?



If you hold 1 key down the adjacent keys won't work because of the cheap way the keyboard is made, this becomes a ghost key.

Some light reading if you are interested:-

No volume control?



No need for custom buttons - just use something like

matthew.malensek.net/pro…VX/

I have that setup so that Alt+MouseWheel is volume - it works everywhere (even in fullscreen video/games) - excellent and FREE (obviously you can setup any key/mouse combo for this and it will map play/pause/ffwd/rewd and so-on too)
