Perixx PX-5000 - Keys

First of all I would like to thank Perixx for sending me the keyboard for review. The keyboard can be found on AmazonUK for £70, and AmazonUSA for $100.
This is a US layout keyboard, despite being on Amazon UK. Perixx made me aware of this, prior to receiving the PX-5000. It actually didn’t bother me that much and I must say it worked flawlessly. If you do have problems with a US layout, then I suggest not buying it. Furthermore, you can always change the Windows keyboard layout to US if you so wish.
