The nice wrist pad is useless. you should never sit your hand on wrist pad while typing. Nor should you rest hand on it when not typing. (you should remove your hand from typing position when not actually typing. Reduce strain.) Use $2 washable throwaway-able bath tower folded instead. It needs to be at least 4cm high.

The fancy color lights is pretty useless.

No extra function keys, no sound wheel, no media control keys, and fairly expensive.

Basically, when consider functionality, this keyboard is not much better than cheap $50 ones.

For similar, you better off with
