My main technical moan is that the spacebar is split (required to allow the keysets to fit properly) which effectively means you have two spacebars, and to me this is just plain fiddly and stupid. Fiddling around with this stuff will remind you of the disappointing Christmas when you got Duplo instead of Meccano. It's like some kind of dumb Lego land for geeks.
Keysets fold away neatly when not in use
I have seen some super flames on forums in regards to the installation of the software for this keyboard and lack of support, however, I didn’t run into any problems myself. Moreover, there are some useful features on both the mouse and the keyboard, but the latter certainly is in need of refinement. Still, ardent WoW gamers will certainly appreciate the benefits, as grumbles aside, these Cataclysm peripherals appear to do exactly what they say on the tin. ®

Steelseries World of Warcraft mouse and keyboard
why is a split spacebar a problem though?
you're still going to hit it with either your left thumb or your right, and it makes no difference which half of the spacebar that you hit, does it? it still triggers the spacebar keystroke.
it's purely asthetics as you'll end up resting one thumb on the split between them i guess
it makes me look like an idiot, not a sucker ;)
still, the basic keyboard which i plugs into is still £40 which still brings it in at almost half the RRP of the caty one. (the best deal for the reviewed one is around £87)
So even though I overlooked the fact that my initial post lists a naff replacement key pad, the point that they keyboard is a rippoff and is basically a clone of a product already on the market with a different sticker on it, is still valid.
is a sticker of a Dragon instead of a dranei and a bloodelf worth £45 quid more to you?
Get your facts right
You've linked to just a KEYSET (just a part of a full keyboard). You should really look into the facts before making yourself appear to be the sucker!
Nice looking mouse....
I wouldn't mind it, as for the keyboard, I've a logitech g19 and it does everything I really need, as well as having a nice little screen for all sorts of fun things while gaming.
