I like this keyboard. The backlit keys and LCD are nice, and honestly I think I leave the backlight on all the time because otherwise unless you have really good lighting it's tough to see what the actual keys are. There are a few programs out there that do extra stuff with the LCD, and a couple apps that even allow you to create your own stuff for the display. I primarily have an app called G15 Net Speed which displays a scalabe graph showing your upload and download speeds for any network adapter you have on your computer. They have since released a new version of this keyboard, which looks good, but I haven't tried it. The macro keys go pretty much unused by me as I don't game so much anymore, plus they didn't have a default profile for Counter Strike, and I tried making my own macros for it, but failed. I'd recommend this keyboard to anyone.
