Awesome keyboard

 

Bought it yesterday when it was on sale for $90. Got it the next day. Was in a large box with a lot of protective packaging. Was undamaged and has no problems. All the leds work and it isn't too bright

Not sure if its a con or not but the spacebar doesn't make the same click as the rest of the keys so it's gets -1 egg

gaming" is just a sales pitch

 

for about the same money or SLIGHTLY more you can get a real suitable mechanical keyboard.. one with macro keys, a num pad that can be placed on either side, or many other things that will make you a happier player. so do your OWN research on what the...

pros.. well you are buying it on newegg so itll arrive quickly and returning it will be a cinch

this is in NO WAY a "gaming" keyboard! if it was they would have used reds or blacks NOT browns! there are other things missing like macro keys and a wrist rest that would make those long sessions WAY more comfy, but the real issue is "gaming" is...

Over-rated

 

Waited for awhile to catch this on sale, big disappointment. Nowhere near as good as the Logitech Illuminated keyboards. The Blue illumination is uneven and hard to read. Would not buy again. Maybe if they make one with white illumination and a wrist...

Nice clicky action

Blue is hard to see, Keyboard is not slim at all, sits too high

Great Keyboard

 

Once you go mechanical you never go back.

As soon as I took this out of the box and typed on it I've been in love. I had never typed on a mechanical keyboard before and decided to get a brown switch. The LED's aren't really blinding to me at all, besides it has a dimmer. No problems with keys...

Wish the "bump" on the keys was a little bit heavier than they are but not too bad at all

Aaahhhh!!

 

It's a great keyboard but that light is just Aaahhhh!! Would have given 5 stars if it wasn't for that light.

This is my first mechanical keyboard and it feels great to type on compared to past non-mechanical keyboards

On the first day the "6" key light went out. It irks me every time I look at it. I've gotten to the point where I just turn off the lights during the day so all the keys look the same. I bought the 9100 model because it had a backlight. It's annoying...

Works, but backlights are flaky

 

I personally would likely a slightly harder key-feel, the Cherry MX brown is so light that I still tend to bottom out when typing.

Good mechanical keyboard, works nicely

Not as quiet as you would imagine, only slightly quieter than a Cherry MX Blue keyboard ; The backlight on my N key died on me, this is the second day I've used it.. hopefully that doesn't bode for the entire keyboard. The key still works as I'm typing...

Good keyboard

 

I bought this keyboard to replace an ancient Northgate 1980's keyboard which lasted through 6 generations of my computing. There still isn't a keyboard as good as the Northgate on the market presently!

Quality build. They fixed the cable connection problem reported in earlier models. The cable is now hard wired into the keyboard. The keyboard is not shiny which is my preference and is fairly compact. I'm not a gamer but wanted something better to...

NumLock, CapsLock, ScrollLock keys have green leds that are way too bright! I put a small piece of green tape over them which fixed the problem ; The Cherry MX brown switches were still pretty clacky, so I did the o-ring mod which helped a lot ;...

Nice Feel

 

I bought this on another site on sale, but I like it so much that I wanted to review here as well. I love how the keyboard feels and the way the lights look. It's nice and heavy, and doesn't slide around on my desk while I'm gaming or typing. Nice...

I love how the keyboard feels and the way the lights look. It's nice and heavy, and doesn't slide around on my desk while I'm gaming or typing ; Nice response time of key presses ; Good sound, very satisfying

Needs 2 USB ports to have light work

Consumer review by:

From an old gamer

 

I suspect this is about the best keyboard I could have, given the broad range of activities I need it to do well. I never used those macro keys and rarely used the little screen on the old keyboard, and they will not be missed. I may miss the cushion...

While I'm considered a tech expert, I'm hardly a typing expert. I am somewhat more than a two-finger typist but far less than a real typist ; I have always missed the types of keyboards I grew up with and supposed a mechanical keyboard would come...

Coming from the mammoth famous gaming keyboard that starts with a G, this board feels tiny. There is nothing extra here - no place to rest a palm, which I had supposed would not be important but is a minor annoyance I will have to rectify ; The LED...

Consumer review by:

Very nice keyboard.

 

This is a very sturdy keyboard but with a light feel when typing/gaming; somewhat heavy and feels rooted to the desk ; Compared to a rubber-dome these keys are a dream. I prefer the brown switches for gaming than the reds so many people seem to like...

The LEDs on the caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock keys are a bit bright and don't seem to be adjustable with all of the other keys. Not nearly bad enough to take an egg off, though
