The biggest feature of the keyboard is the number pad, which can be placed on the right or left side of the keyboard. Backlighting is also included in a cool looking red in normal mode and the programmable keys are backlit with an orange color light when in the two gaming modes.
The keyboard has cruise control that will continue activating a key as long as cruise control is on. A full complement of media control keys are offered and the keyboard supports automatic profile switching. Another cool feature is that the WASD movement keys have three dots on the front of each key to make them easier to identify."
