First thing I thought when I saw 'HARD2711F' was the Dell Ultrasharp U2711...

X6 is a horrible keyboard for gaming (I used to have one). The ghosting is very noticable and horrible. For a "gaming" keyboard it's amazing how bad the ghosting is. Now the new(er) X4 keyboard has all the "anti ghosting" plastered everywhere with the marketing presumably because of how bad the X6 is.

I now use a Logitech G110 and have never encountered an issue with ghosting.

Edit: And the X6 has a smaller than ussual and non standard layout, it's actually pretty annoying too. About the only thing I liked about the X6 was the volume knob, although my new G110 has the wheel which isn't half bad.
