The only strengths are that it is indeed a linear red switched keyboard. Nothing else is of value as you will read.
2 Keyboards purchased in May. Keyboard 1 lost the left arrow key (the number 4 on the number pad) in less than 2 months. I figure I will solder a new switch in there, but what a pain, and I never even attempted HP warranty because It's not worth my time. Second Keyboard had a broken wrist pad. It connects via this cheap plastic part that goes into the keyboard, locking only on the side by two tiny knobs. Pick the keyboard up, and the wrist wrest goes vertical and in most cases will then fall off. Junk. I'm missing what these manufacturers are thinking with putting out this inferior hardware. I sold HP in the past, and NEVER had issues with their products, but it seems like they too are now cutting corners and putting out what I deem is substandard and inferior parts. From loving HP and selling them in the past with great confidence, to "WILL never again buy anything with HP on it" - Congrats on eliminating a faithful customer after years of service and purchasing.
Avoid this keyboard, especially at $89. I have purchased generic red switch keyboards for $39 and they are STILL WORKING. How sad that this HP died with in 3 months. Live and learn, the industry is definitely changing amidst stiff competition, but this is a fail from the get go and I'm out $80 for 2 screwy keyboards. Thanks HP

I'm sure I'm the idiot who bought the last 2 of these before reading the reviews. HP has an audio jack on the keyboard which then passes through to the audio output device. One channel of the keyboard jack has already cut out. If I plug the headphones into the computer, everything is fine, but using the keyboard jack is now defective. I can't wait to see how bad the second keyboard is. AVOID THIS JUNK
Manufacturing, wiring, and no wonder this crap was on sale.

I returned this keyboard after about an hour. The keyboard is advertised as RGB. This is true only in that some keys are blue, some are red and some are green. As a bonus the W A S D keys are purple. The only ability to change anything is by cycling through patterns or changing the brightness using on-keyboard commands. There are also three presets to turn off different zones. The support documentation is a hassle to find on HP's website and the only instructions in the box are pictograms about how to plug it in. I have no comment on the usability etc, because my disappointment was with the lighting, and lack of documentation.
