Not worth more than a quid? oh ah...

As long as you're not expecting actual gaming standard performance then surely this is worth it for someone in need of a basic keyboard.

Shame, not a prime member & used my free trial a while ago!

Agreed though, someone like me just after replacing my existing keyboard this has to be worth the money!

Cheap, for a cheap leyboard

The preferred type of gaming keyboard is mechanical. This is a far cry from an actual gaming keyboard 10x the price.

Terrible keyboard, for £29 more you could've bought that Impact 600, a classy, classy keyboard (_;). Nothing, when you consider a decent keyboard could last you a decade.

Gets pretty poor reviews on Amazon, which might explain why they're so keen to get rid of what they have?

I've not used this myself, but the reviewers are ridiculous, one reviewer gave it 4 stars for the wear of the key caps after 2 years of heavy use, and the keyboard is still working. Checking the price of it 2 years ago, it ranged from £16-£28.

2 years of heavy use for £16 is still not good enough for some people. £6 is a good deal if you're after just any keyboard that will do the job, nevertheless, if it fails, amazon will refund.

I got mine today. It's actually one of the worst keyboards I've ever used. It feels extremely cheap, and the keys have a strange slickness meaning I feel like they're about to slip off the key I'm pressing.

You get exactly what you pay for with this one.

Taken a punt for £5.95. Been wanting a backlit keyboard for a while and this price is low enough to try. Thanks OP.

If you're not going to shell out for a proper gaming mechanical keyboard, which is your prerogative, then don't buy garbage like this. If you're looking in the tenner and under range then Microsoft or Logitech budget keyboards are good value.

Best recent keyboard offer was the Turtle Beach Cherry MX Brown I reckon (was around £35 - the OP isn't really that clear about the price hike in their edited post) hotukdeals.com/dea…890

I have tried all sorts of keyboards, from bottom of the range (like, Tesco Value!! to mid-range). Usually you find cheapo keyboards are very noisy (not in a good way) and key etchings wear away within weeks (maybe I have quite oily hands or I'm "heavy handed" with my typing?), but to be fair to the Zalman, I think its keys are actually laser-etched.

If you type a lot, you owe it yourself to buy something that will be a daily beater that lasts for years.

Mind you, paying more moolah doesn't always mean quality. Previiously I had a Logitech G510s (membrane illuminated gaming keyboard, decent at the time of purchase) that had key cap wear within about 18 months - but I got a warranty replacement. A real shame as the G11 I had before that still looked brand new, just a few functions had given up after 6 years of abuse.

Exactly why I bought it. If it's that ****, I haven't wasted much. If it's alright then I'll be happy. Should be here today so will see!

I traded mine in to CEX for £12 store credit.

Since I still need a keyboard for this computer at my sister's place, I got this -- amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1

I'm really impressed with it. Feels really nice and definitely as good, if not better than the other Chinese mechanical keyboards I've owned/tried that have costed way more.

Hint: Just in case some people hadn't realised - the backlight can be changed by pressing the R-B button next to the dial at the top.

As many reviewers have mentioned - the blue back-lighting is quite dim in daylight. I found the red to be significantly better in this respect.
