The OCZ Elixir keyboard has been out for just about 2 years now. We were lucky enough to win one during CES at OCZ’s party. We normally would not review such an old keyboard, but looking around online we found this keyboard for $20 brand new, which for any keyboard is a great deal. So let’s take a look at the Alchemy Series Elixir Gaming keyboard and see if it’s the perfect keyboard for a gamer on a budget.
