When it comes to keyboards, gamers want a unit that has all the necessary keys in a convenient location — as well as something that looks good.
Some are mighty, such as Razer’s Lycosa, and some — Emprex’s Cheetah, for example — aren’t. Membership is free, and your security and privacy remain protected. If you’re anything like us, your keyboard hand has shaped itself into a gnarled claw that’s capable of fitting the standard layout, so any change to that layout leaves you flailing around your virtual worlds like your character’s just had a stroke.
All of this is coloured a stylish piano black. The next thing down the rubbish keyboard ladder is the addition of pointless extras, such as duplicating the WSAD keys as a replacement for the numpad.
The Emprex Cheetah H may have style, bling kebyoard expandability, but this gaming keyboard fails to provide a better gaming experience. Two built-in USB 2. The most eye-catching feature is the rotatable keypad on the left-hand side of the unit. Aesthetically, the Emprex has plenty to offer the modern gamer.
Then came the gaming keyboard full of bravado, buttons and pointless LEDs. The symmetrical circular design means that rotating the panel doesn’t change the layout.

Look, wmprex just a bad, bad keyboard and no number of flashing, dynamic light shows can change that. Although these factors are a little less important with non-shooter games, almost every genre that would benefit from a streamlined keypad will need the aforementioned buttons within a hand’s reach to properly compete. Sneaking is traditionally used with the Shift key and crouching with the Ctrl key, so the designers have dutifully included both on the left-hand panel.
TechRadar pro IT insights for business. Two keyboarc palm-rests provide an easy grip for the player’s hands and four rubber feet hold the unit on a table strongly.
Typing on the Cheetah though feels like prodding a fat man submerged in a bath of eel slime. Lightshow aside, the Cheetah is a streamlined and mean looking device that won’t be out of place at any serious LAN party or gaming cafe.
Our Verdict This gaming keyboard tries to change the format of the standard keyboard so much so it ends up making it a pain to use whenever you’re not gaming. The lack of a Tab key on the panel also means that players will need to reach across to the main keyboard to use the function, which slows down game play and potentially makes the gamer an easier target.
Seventeen of the most common gaming keys have been placed in a good position for gamers to gain maximum flexibility in an effort to outplay the opposition. A rotating trio of colours orange, red, blue shine through both the keys and the Cheetah symbol on the lower section of the keyboard.
Pros Attractive design, interesting light show, good expandability options. I need power and lots of it.
But, as most gamers will tell you, situational kebyoard and sneaking around are two of the most important aspects of taking out your opponents. Emprex Cheetah H It’s got the looks, but has it got the goods? Not least because that feature doesn’t actually work on our Cheetah. The unit needs to plug into all these ports on the computer itself, and does this via a rather thick cable set; the net gain is one USB 2.

Granted, a few things have evolved — we’ve got some extra keys on our boards and we’ve got the numpad and cursor keys too — but things have remained pretty constant. Unfortunately, the Shift key is placed in an abnormally high position, so that those using it will constantly hit keyboarx Q key.
