Creative Sound BlasterX Vanguard K08 RGB Keyboard Review

Software and Lighting

At the moment the software only allows you to adjust the lighting, although we're informed that macro editing and recording is forthcoming. It does mean that the majority of the fun and games of the keyboard are left up in the air. Still, the lighting is excellent, it's just a shame that there aren't any predefined keygroups to work with. Manually selecting the right keys for a particular title is a pain in the posterior. The sooner that Creative get their software up to par the better.

Nice review Brian but don't hold your breath waiting for the software updates as Creative are notoriously slow with their updatesQuote

I concur! I've had enough of Creative products and I refuse to buy them, unless they function without software (like my speakers).Quote

Yup naming fail and pricing fail.

Would have been cool if they had actually fitted a reasonable USB sound card into the keyboard with headphone/mic for non USB headsets though.Quote

You know what. That would be a smart idea. Considering they have USB sounds cards. It could be connected by passthrough and embedded in the head of the keyboard.Quote
