8 years later

 

Maybe next time I'll write reviews sooner... LOL

It's mechanical and priced low It's no longer available. Why is that a pro? See below.

The usb cable where it inserts onto the PCB of the keyboard eventually gives and the solder points lift off the board. I've now re-soldered this thing 6 times. They shouldn't have made the cable removable.

Broke after a year

 

Didn't experience connect issue other did though

Has a solid feel like one would expect from a mechanical keyboard

W key stopped working after 1.5yrs of moderate use. Used a separate keyboard for gaming. so this one was internet browsing and some email typing. Had $5 keyboards last longer than this.

Poor service

 

The only thing worse than the keyboard itself is the customer service when it finally breaks on you. They will only issue you a refund not even repair the unit. Normally that would be okay except that this keyboard goes on sale regularly and if you...

among the top reduced mechanical keyboards

 

My fingers do not touch the faceplace in normal use, so I rather like the clean machined aluminum edges, unlike the other reviewer. If you are looking for a reduced mechanical keyboard, and are willing to pay the price, this is one of the better ones,...

Action on Cherry-blue MX keys is very good for touch typing. If you are looking for a reduced key keyboard with high quality key switches, this is one of the top ones. There are convenient key combos to swap left-control with caps-lock, and swap the...

The small right shift key is taking some getting used to. I'm having trouble with hitting the arrow keys when I want to shift, which can be quite troublesome. I may get used to that with time ; Price is on the high end for reduced mechanical keyboards....

Mini USB port issues

 

I'd have stuck with the Cherry Black switches, but have gone with a different brand keyboard if I could.

Keyboard worked well for awhile. Quickly adjusted to the Cherry Black switches, which are great to type and game on. Keyboard layout is fine, although I've never cared for the windows key.

As mentioned by numerous other reviews, the USB connection is an issue. It worked for awhile, but now I'm getting intermittant disconnects, and the mini USB socket seems like the issue. Feels loose and shoddily manufactured. Obviously this is a huge...

3 months and still going strong

 

Would have been better to hard wire the keyboard and simply include a PS2 to USB adapter though I will be getting another when they're on sale.

Solid - heavy enough to use in a Zombie Invasion (just don't forget my morning cuppa). Similar to an IBM Selectric, means I can actually type faster then one of those cheap so called Silent keyboards. Bog standard 104 key setup. Comes with both a USB...

Blue LED's. They annoy me ; As others have said, poor mini-usb cable connection. Can be solved by replacing with a better cable

A joke in the poorest of tastes

 

I want to love this keyboard but its only flaw is so glaring I can't.

Responsive and durable. Serves me well when it actually works. Used primarily for chatting on the net and playing video games.

My first keyboard's escape button broke after a few days so I went through the exchange process and got a new one. I've been using the second one for a few months now and there have been consistent USB connection problems. The keyboard can't be moved...
