Simple yes and no questions.
Did you overspend?
Is it mechanical?
Is it a good brand?
Do you really need it?

It should be
No
Yes
Yes
Yes
So, did you waste money?
If you have more than 2 of which that are no, then you fucked up big time.

I've researched gaming keyboards for the past month and this one had what I wanted:

-Macro recording
-Macro keys
-Media buttons
-Low price ($80)
-Good ratings
-Not very many cons as far as I could see
-BACK LIGHTING

At first, I looked at Razer keyboards and a lot of people had problems with keys just not working so I looked around and found this one and it looked great. I also chose not to get the gaming mouse (Razer Naga) because I use keybindings in my games instead of mouse functions.

I didn't overspend, most GOOD Razer keyboards are $120+, so I felt I got a good deal. I also got free shipping, which is always nice.

Alienware is a respectful company and they almost never make a defective or bad product.

So...that is why I chose to buy this keyboard.

An i3 for $1000 is just bullshit.

This is the Alienware Tactx keyboard. They also have a mouse and headset in the same Tactx series.

I would rather spend another 20 bucks for a Rosewill Mechanical keyboard. Alienware keyboards are dope, but they are too flashy! You could have got a k90 corsair, it has red switches or brown I think, which are primarily made for gaming.

Well I like flash, something my current gaming setup doesn't really have.

Also, mechanical keyboards are extremely loud.

Thinking into the future, I am going to have this keyboard probably throughout college.

I'd prefer typing on a less noisy keyboard when doing like long papers and stuff so I don't annoy my room mate Very Happy

I do, just they are kinda lame and not very bright.

I'm thinking of getting some cathode light strips to lighten my case up.

Well, it's pretty quiet. Due to the fact that it is not mechanical, the keys are higher up, however, I am used to higher keys because my old keyboard was like that.

Overall, the lighting is great, typing is fast (still getting used to typing fast again), and the macros work perfectly. Ill post another picture of the lighting when it is all dark.

What connections come out of the keyboard? Is it just USB?
Does it require any drivers?

Yeah it does have a cd that comes with it to download the LED effects software and also the keyboard macro program. I'd like to note that the macro recording can be done using just the keyboard or using the macro software.

It is dual-USB, to power the keyboard and the LED keys. I have like 8 USB slots, so its all good.
