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,...100

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...-
