Division Zero X40 Pro Gaming Mechanical Keyboard

Set flat on the table, the left edge of the X40 shows that there is a top flat panel, which angles down at the front on top of a smaller plastic lower frame section. We can also see that there is a convex layout to the keys in this keyboard, a bit more dramatic of a curve than most.

The main section of the X40 offers cylindrical keycaps with easy to read legends due to the white on black coloring. We also find a haphazard pattern of chunky black sections that cover the silver painted aluminum top plate.

The left edge of the keyboard offers up five Macro keys before we run into the main layout. These can be programmed on-the-fly, or can also be programmed or reassigned via software.

Along the top, the Escape key doubles as a sleep button for the PC. F1 can dim the LEDs, F2 will brighten them, and F3 is a Windows lockout key. F4 is left with no double duty.

The F5 key is set for back a track, the F6 is the play/pause button, and the F7 moves forward a track. As for F8, it is also left blank as far as secondary functionality goes.

F9 is used to mute sound, F10 lowers the sound, and F11 raises sound. The F12 key is marked MR, which is how one goes about programming the five Macro buttons without the use of the software.
