Considering our sub $45 price the features the IOGEAR IKON offer are pretty generous. The three color LED Backlighting gives you a couple of backlight choices but the main thing here is that it is backlit, The 26 antighosting keys are an unexpected but welcome feature. Switchable WASD keys to the arrow keys for MMO gamers is a nice touch. The Windows and all key lockouts we expect on gaming keyboards but don’t always get. We really don’t mind a keyboard being water-resistant but resistant doesn’t offer much promise, waterproof or don’t make the claim resistant. Resistant doesn’t do you a lick of good when the sparks fly. Now we can agree with the membrane structure embedded pom plunger keycaps. We’ve gotten used to mechanical keyboards but it’s nice to see a membrane keyboard that simulates the tactile response of mechanical. People and manufacturers have gotten so mechanical focused it’s driven up the price of mechanical and the price on mechanical ¬†just doesn’t justify in most budget builds. The weight on the base of the IKON is a nice solid heavy weight in our hands and makes it stick to the desktop without sliding. IOGEAR has put down a 3 year warranty so they are pretty confident about the keyboards durability.
