Saitek Cyborg V.5 Keyboard Review

Cyborg V.5 Keyboard from Saitek is an ideal multipurpose keyboard. It has a super stylish ‘winged look’ that makes it look more like a Bat’s wing than a keyboard; the LED lights gives it a distinct appearance, the soft keys are ideal for long hour writing sessions and also gaming sessions. These features make the Saitek Cyborg V.5 Keyboard ideal for workplace and also for gaming.

The Cyborg V.5 is enabled with a special feature exclusive to only Saitek Cyborg keyboard models. This special feature is the anti-ghosting feature that ensures that only the keys that you intend to press are pressed and only the words that you wanted to write appear on screen. Any partial pressing that happens accidentally is neutralized in the Saitek Cyborg V.5 keyboard. The anti-ghosting feature is now available in many leading keyboards but it had made its debut with the Saitek Cyborg V.5 Keyboard.

Another very useful feature is the reprogrammable Function Keys. You can download and install software from the Saitek Cyborg website. This feature comes in use when you are playing games or even if you need to customize the functions of the regular function keys. You can always change what you dislike.

The Saitek Cyborg V.5 keyboard connects to the system through a USB port that ensures safe, consistent and fast. Those of you who hold quite orthodox views on how a Keyboard should look and what its shape and size should be must be warned that the Cyborg V.5 keyboard is shaped rather oddly to your old fashioned concepts (excuse me for the Generation Gap). However those of you who are experimental would agree to me that the Saitek Cyborg V.5 has an unconventional and a rather Hip look. The size might not fit in very small places but I would assure you it is not that unconventional to be irksome.

The Keys are LED backlit and in darkness the red LED emits light through the laser etched keys of the Saitek Cyborg V.5 Keyboard giving an aura of mystery. Though there is a little spill of the LED lights, it appears to be intentional and adds to the beauty and cool quotient of the Saitek Cyborg V.5 Keyboard. If at some point of day you are not in a mood of too much red you can switch on the lights and switch of the LEDs on your Saitek Cyborg Keyboard.

The soft keys, LED lights, anti-ghosting are just some of the features that make it Rank 25 on the amazon bestsellers list of keyboards. Another Fact that makes the Saitek Cyborg V.5 Keyboard so popular is its affordability.
