Terrible Customer Service


This is a good solid keyboard, when it works

When it doesn't it's the most frustrating thing to deal with. Mine broke within 2 month's use so I used my warranty and sent it back, received it back within a week and turns out the left alt key is broken so I call them again. I get promised that I...

I have red switches.


I'd buy another one of these, probably the newer full lit ones, I was displeased when mine broke. My spare keyboard is a real piece :'(

This was an awesome keyboard when it worked. I have the red switches on the one i purchased, but couldn't find it again on here, this is the same model, just different switches, so i felt my review would be best here

Just recently the keys on my keyboard started to light up to full brightness on their own, and won't allow me to adjust the settings, also two whole columns of keys stopped working (4,r,f,v,5,t,g,b) they seem to do random commands like shut off my...

Great Keyboard for the Price


This is a really nice mechanical keyboard for the price. I love the brown cherry switches for typing and gaming. However, keep in mind that it has not hand rest, and it is a thick keyboard. I will have to find one to use, and typically these are a pain...

Price. Some backlighting. Expanded keyboard, Nice feel when typing

No hand-rest (and it's a thick keyboard). Keys seem to be positioned differently than my last keyboard

Too many compromises


I can see that this could be a 4 or 5 egg rating if all the features worked fine and I had no bios issues and no RMA and overcharge issues. However, I cannot rate this board higher than a 2 because of all the unresolved issues and the money that I feel...

You get all the nice mechanical keyboard benefits. Feedback, durability... umm, repairability

First board had something wrong with the internal memory and the function buttons, (all the media keys in my case) so I couldn't use the volume or play and pause buttons, but the back lighting worked fine. (Which I never ever use because it is dumb and...

QuickFire Pro


The Mini-USB end of the cable is just really thick, so it takes some force to get into the socket on the keyboard. Some people claim it's impossible, but it's not. It's just difficult.

Mechanical ; Decent Build Quality ; Cable stays in well

Non-Standard bottom row ; Regular Mechanical keyboards have a bottom row looking like: 1.25-1.25-1.25-6.25-1.25-1.25-1.25-1.25 ; Some Older keyboards and korean boards have ; 1.5-1-1.5-7-1.5-1-1.5 ; This board has 1.5-1-1.5-6-1.5-1-1-1.5 ; This makes...

Great Keyboard


regardless of not being fully backlit, still a great keyboard and definitely worth the money

Fantastice feedback. feels great. I look for things to type just so i can use this keyboard. very responsive. backlit keys are great for gaming

would have liked if the entire keyboard was backlit but it was only designed to light f1,f2,f3,f4,esc,1,2,3,4,5,q,w,e,r,a,s,d,f,z,x,c,space, and the arrow keys

Great Value Mech KeyBd


Don't know why people are complaining about the kb not being fully lit. You knew this when you purchased it. Besides, the fully lit version cost considerably more, so this product is a reasonable compromise

I got this on sale here and it was well worth the price. This is my first mechanical keyboard since the original days of computers (yes, I'm a bit late middle aged). It's solid, feels good, and isn't loud. I love writing code on this keyboard. I may...

Numeric key and their shifts are reversed on the key (number on top, symbol on bottom). But this is not the case for other symbol keys like [=,+]. Kinda weird

Personal Prefrences


I love the responsiveness and the ease of which it was to transfer from using MX Red and membrane keyboards to this one. It was well price when I bought it, around 80

I have only 3 complaints about this keyboard, all of which are rather trivial. Its not fully backlit (which would have been nice at the price I paid), there are no macro function, and the lack of a palm rest (which is the reason why this keyboard is...

Switch preference is subjective, Browns are awesome


Overall, this is a great board for the price after rebate and price drop (Shell Shocker) and is kind of a gateway drug into mechanical keyboards. I'm definitely addicted.

I have the following boards ; TT Meka in MX Black ; Leopold in MX Blue ; CM Storm Trigger in MX Blue ; and now this one in MX Brown ; I must say, the Brown switches feel great and this board is well made and weighs a decent amount to avoid sliding...

Some may find the following dealbreakers ; Partially backlit ; Keycaps could have been designed better (I'm tempted to swap out the caps off my Blue board) ; Could have come with a wrist rest but that just promotes bad posture and I'm totally guilty of...
