EVGA_JamesThe entry level EVGA Z12 keyboard with IP32 Spill-Resistant to protectagainst accidental mishaps while gaming. With 5 zone RGB, dedicatedmedia keys, macro keys, and Cherry stem compatible key caps the Z12is a great introduction into EVGA's Z series gaming keyboards.
EVGA_JamesThe Z12 is a membrane keyboard so it only has 5 zone RGB lighting. You can control each of the 5 sections of the keyboard as it does not have per key RGB. This would significantly increase the price and we're trying to keep this affordable for those that spent all their money on their graphics card
ShadowTigerZCDoes anyone think it's inadvisable to install the software without actually having the keyboard present? I want to see if the software can do what I need it to do regarding the macro keys before I buy something that may not work for my needs.
ShadowTigerZC It sounds silly, but you'd be surprised what a difference it makes. For example, many programs pan around by holding down the middle click. If all I can do is click, I can't really view a 3D modeling creation.
tmaellerI'll assume you're looking into a Z12 keyboard? Honestly, you might be happier with a Z20 or Z15. With the Z20 or Z15, you can individually color each key on the board, or whole sections, as needed - which might come in handy for what you're doing. Hard for me to say, though. :P
ShadowTigerZCThe needs are few:1) 5+ Macro keys on the left side of the keyboard.2) The ability to program those Macro keys to hold in a button or key rather than just have it press the button once at certain intervals.
