The OCZ Elixir keyboard has been out for just about 2 years now. We were lucky enough to win one during CES at OCZ’s party. We normally would not review such an old keyboard, but looking around online we found this keyboard for $20 brand new,...

Final verdict is: very good. This keyboard isn’t meant to be used by users that type whole day long at home or office, but for gamers it is perfect choice. It can blend itself in almost any gaming ambient and even contribute to its...

There is a specialty keyboard for just about everything these days, as with all things this usually comes with a larger price. When I bought my G 15 it was around $100, its come down in price since then but no where near the $29.99 price tag of the...

Is the OCZ Technology Elixir keyboard going to change the gamer keyboard realm forever? I doubt that. The best feature this keyboard has going for it is that the extra ten keys give users added flexibility. The programmable macro keys give consumers...

So coming to the end of my time with the Elixir, it's time to look back over the last four pages and try and sum it up in a few paragraphs. From the start, it lays itself down as a pretty raw affair. No fancy LED screens or back lights here. But...

The OCZ has done a great job with its Elixir gaming keyboard. Solidly built, with rubberized keys, a lot of features, ten macro keys and a very low price, this keyboard is a great deal. The price, $30-40 in the U.S. and the €20 in the E.U., is...

When you take a long hard look at this keyboard you realize that the demographic the Elixir is aimed is the casual gamer. This is not a bad thing as there is a heck of a lot of people who don't want to go the $100+ elite gamer keyboard route, nor...

Given OCZs track record for quality products, we had high hopes for the Elixir. And with its smart layout and manifold features, it didnt disappoint, at least as a gaming plank. 10 macro keys and 3 profiles easily accommodate those who arent tied...

Overall, the OCZ Elixir is a solid keyboard at a very good price. ($30 retail) The minor layout issues we had were just that - minor nitpicks. Were very picky about our keyboards. Compared with most keyboards, $30 is about average - though the...

In conclusion, this is a great keyboard to look into if you want a quality product that wont break your wallet. OCZ mixes style, features, and affordability to create the Elixir. The board has a design and look to it that is much like Razers...

If youre a gamer on a very tight budget looking for a gaming keyboard that works better than the piece of junk that shipped with your computer, the OCZ Elixir is certainly worth a look....

OCZs primary goal they say is to ensure that "every customer is 110% satisfied." Often times we do end up being completely satisfied with the OCZ products we are looking at, but in the case of the Elixir Keyboard in the OCZ Alchemy series, it fell a...

The OCZ Elixir keyboard might be budget priced but it can easily hold its own against keyboards that cost two to three times as much and even has more features than some of those more expensive keyboards do. If youre looking for a great gaming and...

The OCZ Alchemy Elixir is a decent, high quality keyboard. Each of the function keys seem to work as described, the browser keys are handy for navigating around the web, and the multimedia keys are useful for audio or video playback. All of the keys...

OCZs new Alchemy Series Elixir Gaming Keyboards are pretty damn cool. With features like membrane coated keys, programmable macro keys, easy to use software, spare set of keys, and a great feel, I would have expected this keyboard to retail for twice...

International Review By Technic3D on 88

Die Alchemy Elixir von OCZ ist eine gute Gaming-Tastatur, die den Anforderungen der Spieler größtenteils entspricht. Die Pro-Gamer werden vermutlich ein Informationsdisplay sowie die Beleuchtung der Tasten vermissen. Die Verarbeitung ist gut...

International Review By Digitale-Generation on 82

Mit weniger als 30 Euro ist das Alchemy Elixir ein echter Preis-Leistungs-Tipp. Optisch erinnert es (wohl nicht ohne jeglichen Hintergedanken) an verschiedene Razer-Modelle – die aber preislich weit entfernt liegen. Wertung: 82%...

International Review By Allround-PC.com on

Mit dem „Elixir“ Gaming Keyboard liefert OCZ ein gutes Mittelklasse-Produkt, bei dem auf Extras nicht verzichten muss. und das bei einem preis von nur knapp 30,- Euro. Leuchtende Effekte vermissen wir allerdings bei dieser Tastatur, welche...
