I have just finished the first draft of my review of the OCZ Alchemy Elixir....sooo it should be up in about a week or so.

As a sneak peak ;) its not a bad keyboard and is a very good value BUT it may take some getting used to as it is a tactile membrane keyboard. All in all, for the money it is hard to beat, but if money is not a major concern there are better more expensive keyboards out there (e.g. I LOVE my MS Comfort Curve 4000 for FPS gaming. And the Logitech G series are kick ass as well).

Not to revive an old thread but I just took my Elixir II keyboard back. I found the key layout and how compact it was really awkward. It may fit different hands but I didn't like it. Given more time I would have became used to the key layout but how compact it was just didnt feel right to me.
