Great tactile sense and click, light keys, very responsive, compact with small footprint.
none for the price.
I purchased this keyboard on sale and have to say that after many years of mushy keys, finally there is one that is not $150 in price, yet works well. I miss those old XT keyboards from the 90s that have great tactile sense and finally have one that comes somewhat close without having to break the bank. I never bought this for gaming, but for actual typing and find it very responsive...a great buy!

Compact, seems durable, price, good for gaming
Awkward setup for heavy typing
The keyboard is not bad for gaming, definitely a durable keyboard for only $20.
However, I found the layout terrible for typing/programming. Having to press a button at the top right every time to switch between arrow keys and the num pad is very frustrating.
The half-size backspace will get yea every once and while too!
The picture of the layout is not what it actually looks like. This is:

-Very Compact, saving a lot of desk space
-Feels good on the click as an non-mechanical keyboard.
-WSAD anti-ghosting
-Solid build quality, metal base + rubber feet making the keyboard firmly staying on your desk.
-The click tends to be on the loud side
-Need time to get used to the non-traditional key layout.
Check out this sample video of using the ARVO keyboard:

Has been using this keyboard as my day to day working and gaming keyboard. Liking it so far!
Aside from the pros & cons listed above. The feeling of key press is quite unique, as it has a "medium" height key press. The key press is in between a mechanical deep clicky feeling and a laptop flat key press.
The thumbster macro key is a great feature, just way too convenient and comfortable to use.

Nice compact design - Good mode changes for on the fly gaming.
I got this Keyboard on sale for $19, which was a pretty good savings.. It's a very compact keyboard aiming to save space on all sides. I mainly use it for gaming and it works fine for that purpose.. I don't know if I would pay the original price of $69.99 but it is a decent keyboard!

small, doesn't take up space
keys too close together
unfortunately had to return this keyboard. not worth the price, although it is a nice keyboard, it is not comfortable and there 3 macro keys at the bottom didn't actually work. if you think this keyboard is worth it, get it for your young son or daughter with small hands, you'll have a hard time typing with it

prefer the normal keyboard lay out, this one is not good

doesn't ghost
works well when gaming mostly.
shallow buttons
button layout can be odd
never get used to having to switch board to numpad
This keyboard is a decent gaming keyboard but i prefer larger buttons and normal keyboard layout personally.
It doesn't ghost i got it cheap but i'm probably replacing it for something laid out more like my g15 was i still find myself hitting wrong keys in the heat of the moment when gaming or typing in the dark.
This keyboard would be good for a server rack tray as it would fit between the sides.
For gaming keyboards though stick to something more traditional.
