Thanks, don't forget 5% TCB (£1.30): topcashback.co.uk/ebay

eBay transactions usually take a few days to show up in one's account.
Just paid 29.99 for this! Argh

Yup can comfirm that's not the UK one in the picture. Bought the gaming bundle from a deal on here back in Nov 2014 and keyboard still going strong, you will hear some say the black wears away from some keys but I've only had that on my "A" key slightly.

If your vacuum cleaner has a 'blow' function use that - free & works great. It's what I use.

TY, though afraid not. Is on me list of functions for when I ever have to replace it though.
Had this keyboard and it spent most of its time sat in the cupboard. It's hard to find your way around the keyboard by feel (like onto WASD) due to the flat keys and the macro keys on the left, plus the space bar is weird. Also the non-removable wrist rest makes the keyboard take up a lot of space.

It's not terrible or anything, and it's decent value at this price, just I didn't really enjoy using it.

Thanks for the honest review.

Pity, returning it may not be free as it's not a C+C item - quoted from: stores.ebay.co.uk/Arg…tml

"Can I return my item to a store?
Currently only Items purchased from Argos on eBay that are Click & Collected from an Argos store can be returned to a store. We’re working hard to update our systems to make all eBay purchases (except large 2 man delivery items) returnable to store but at the moment we’re sorry but non Click & Collect purchases cannot be returned to an Argos store."

Although, one may be able to use the free PayPal returns option: paypal.com/uk/…rns - needs to be activated by the looks of it.

I don't mean to put you off the keyboard before you've tried it, I mean plenty of people like chiclet style keys, wrist rests and macro keys. It just wasn't for me.

Be careful with vacuum cleaners around computers and other electronics. They generate static that can ruin components. There's a reason why people buy canned air.
No, I wasn't put off. Yes, definitely going to try it before deciding. I'm usually not fussy with these kinds of things, so I think I'll probably keep it - just for gaming.

The rest of my previous post was for the benefit of others in case they might consider returning theirs for the reasons you mention or their own unique ones.

Been doing it for over 15 years - never damaged a single computer or component.

Just keep your distance - don't touch the vacuum cleaner's nozzle/tube to anything inside a computer or a component & it'll be fine. Most vacuum cleaners blow action is quite powerful anyway, so one can blow from a foot (or more) away & it'll be more than enough.

As always, one person's experience is not universal. Thanks for proving the rule that "on the Internet someone will always disagree with you" though lol.

Don't ever use a vacuum cleaner on your CPU fan. OK it's years ago when CPUs were cooler and fans were smaller but I thought hmm dusty I'll hoover it and stuck the nozzle on. The vacuum cleaner suction spun the fan backwards over 9000 times faster than its design speed and ruined it. After that it sort of went round half-heartedly making a sad grinding noise.

I'm not a massive fan of this keyboard.. I purchased it then sent it back within a few days.. I personally think that the keys are a little too close together.
Got mine, lots of keys not working, sending back for refund. Shame

Did the box have a factory seal please? If not, it could've been a return they didn't check properly before re-selling - naughty!

Mine's arriving tomorrow or Tuesday.

Seal wasnt broken. Did look brand new. Plugged it in. Lots of random keys didnt work, such as the S key and windows key. Make sure you check they all work
