ZM-K700M Continued

These keys are self-explanatory. The volume down can be used as a left mouse click, the mute can be used to scroll, and the volume up can be used as a right mouse click. The Z-key is what allows you to switch profiles and use with the M-key set or the G-key set.

On the arrow keys, two of them are marked Macro minus and Macro plus. This allows users to either slow down or speed up any of the Macros set by ten percent in either direction.

The right side of the keyboard matches what we saw on the left with a gap at the back for wire management again, but this time, the top edge is different. This is the Z-bar, and the "Z" is backlit in a rainbow mode, and the bars will count things like clicks per second and move like an EQ while you type.

The bottom of the keyboard is flat, offers thin feet at the front, and chunky ones at the back. The trail at the back offers five ways to run the cabling to fit any situation, and right in the middle is the product sticker with the serial number on it.

Zalman offers this board two raised options. You can pick the smaller foot out of the large one, and raise the back one-half of an inch, and this foot offers rubber grip as well.

The other option if you desire a bit more height in the back, is to extend the larger foot. Here again, it offers rubber on the edge to keep the ZM-K700M stable, and it is solidly made and should not collapse.

The length of the cable is covered in a braided sleeve and even passes through a choke to eliminate any cross-talk in the wiring. It terminates in a USB 2.0 connection, and as you can see, they did not opt for gold plating it.
