Love it!

 

If you're on the fence about entering the wonderful world of mechanical keyboards, this is definitely a great entry level board and can handle quite a bit of abuse and at its price range, the build quality is astounding. It's also a dream to type on.

Great switches ; it contends with more expensive keyboards that I own in terms of build quality and performance ; Lovely MX Blue switches. This is for the clicky clack noisy lovers ; Heavy/doesn't move around ; Braided micro-usb cable ; Comes with a...

After Almost Two Years of Use

 

All in all, if I were to go back and do it again, I would have bought a keyboard with different switches than the blacks and I probably would have purchased a different model after all of the problems this one has begun experiencing. I know that two...

1) Beats the heck out of a membrane keyboard. The only people who seem to voice their disapproval or indifference to mechanical keyboards has never used one ; 2) Tenkeyless version makes it much easier to use on a keyboard tray or a small desk. Also...

1) I purchased this with the Cherry Blacks, and realized shortly after that I made the wrong decision in switches. The black switches are very mushy and require a decent amount of force to bottom out, making typing with them slower than it would be...

Awesome

 

-The lighting under the F9 key, SCR LK key, and Caps Lock key is red. -There is no numpad, just in case you didn't catch that in the specs

Fair price ; Built like a tank ; Clickity click clack ; Comes with replacement windows keys

The key font is weird, but not worth docking an egg

i really wish it had a USB port on the right hand side just like my daskeyboard has. i use that port on my daskeyboard for the micro wireless mouse adapter. this way my mouse is never more than a few inches away from the adapter, which provides for a...

Great compact kb

 

Awesome mechanical keys ; Compact form factor ; High quality fiber covered usb cable that can disconnect from the board itself as well as the PC

Noisy. The price to be paid for that feedback

Best budget Mech Keyboard

 

It's Blue switches so keep in mind that they make a lot of noise.

There are cheaper boards than this but you'll see the compromise for those cheaper boards. This board offers the best performance for the cheapest price

None so far

Works 95% of the time

 

long story short this is a bad keyboard i will not be getting another one this keyboard is either made cheaply or the product line has horrible quality control

Very cheap mechincal keyboard ; it works most of the time ; keyboard is 4 pounds has 0 flex to it

sometimes just does not work will have to restart my computer several times to get it work again ; f keys feel different than the whole other keyboard ; for some reason it only works in one usb port my old keyboard's work in every port

Great Keyboard, good price

 

This keyboard is a little cheaper than most mechanical keyboards. It lacks the bells and whistles, like backlighting, and audio/mic ports. But if you are looking for a great keyboard for a reasonable price, this is it.

This is a great keyboard, and if you are hesitant, don't be. CM makes great products

None really

Great Keyboard

 

I wanted to get this in Cherry MX Browns, but when when I saw the blues for a sale at I think $50? I couldn't pass it up. It was a great investment and I love it.

Feels really nice to type ; Compact, Tenkeyless

Sometimes my quick double taps don't register because I didn't depress the key enough to reactivate the switch. That's the design of blues though, and I was already aware of that ; I'm also not a big fan of the clicks, but again, I knew that when buying

Great So far

 

Owned keyboard for 5 months now, no problems ; Compact, doesn't steal desk area from your mouse ; Heavy, high quality build ; Braided cable is very high quality ; Mechanical, so any switches you break can be individually replaced. (None needed to be...

Mini-usb is used to connect the cord to the keyboard. This means plugging and unplugging a lot will eventually fatigue the relatively fragile solder points. However, for me, the keyboard never moves ; Due to angles, can be a bit awkward to actually...
