Yes, I love the stylish and colourful illuminated keys. That’s what gaming keyboard should have. Yup, you can see all the keys clearly even in dark environment. Not only for show off but have the real usage purpose. 7 colours for you to choose from to match your taste and gears. And there is another flashing mode which cycle all the 7 colours repeatedly too. Surely will make your gaming life much more interesting. However, I am not sure why the LED backlight will be turned off after few minutes of inactivity. Not an issue while playing games though as you will surely keep your keyboard active all the time. By the way, the LED backlight will light up at maximum brightness once connected to PC. There are 9 brightness levels to select. And you can also turn it off totally.
No driver is needed to use Scorpion Order. Plug and play will do. Windows will install the correct driver for you. And you start to use all its 8 multimedia shortcuts and Fn keys too. The shortcuts are surely useful because I usually use them to control volume and music tracks. You can also use them to show your computer, launch browser home page, open email default account and mute volume. Fn + W function lets you to change the functions of arrow keys to WASD keys which provide easier control while gaming. Don’t forget the spill proof design. Yup, no worry about coffee spill here.
Wow… Anti-ghosting with 19 keys rollover support! Nope, they are not working as advertised. I can’t even press WASD at the same time. Same apply to 4 arrow keys. You also can’t press Q, Z or X while holing A and S keys. Q, Z and X key won’t be registered. Fast-paced gamers do take note. Wondering why it is called a gaming keyboard in the first place?
