Lovely

 

I had to dig for cons. I love this thing.

Lovely feel. Something like Cherry MX Browns, I hear ; Seems indestructible. So far so good ; Braided cable

No NKRO. (USB) ; LOUD (Not that I care, but you might) ; No media keys (I just use Autohotkey) ; The CAPS/NumLock/ScrollLock lights are super bright

Nice "clack", a little on the small size

 

This keyboard is reminiscent of the punch in the ancient IBM boards, almost IBM selectric punch. I am a two fingered typist that tends to punch the keys with my two index fingers so this is perfect for me. It's bare bones though. No additional...

This is a great keyboard for those that tend to have a "punch" when they type. Great "clack" and smooth, positive punch when typing

The keyboard is bare bones basic. No room to rest your palms on the base. No USB ports (wasnt expecting any). No media keys for volume control. (again not expecting)

A must for writers

 

The blue LED lights are kinda bright, but they match the blue LED lights in my case and power supply, so I'm happy.

Nice keyboard feel. Almost like the old IBM keyboards. Compact

I wish they didn't put the ABS logo so large. Looks kinda corny. Some electrical tape fixed that. $50 for a keyboard is steep, but this keyboard will last forever

Very nice

 

This is the keyboard that is essentially serves the purpose of itself: typing. Seriously, keyboard is nothing but an input device that serves the purpose of communicating with the computer. But it does an amazing job at that by employing mechanical...

Heavy weight: very good for typing intensive applications. Not moving around on the desk when typing helps efficiency and ergonomics ; Tactile feedback: definitely helps the typing experience, unlike other membrane based keyboards ; Price: another plus...

Sound: although as a non-click type mechanical keyboard, it surely is quieter than other types, it is still quite louder than other membrane based keyboards ; LED: I think this is the biggest problem of the keyboard. The LED lights that notify status...

Excellent Keyboard

 

Over all I will be replacing my other 3 keyboards with these as they wear out.

Great Keyboard - Heavy... just an observation though, does not affect usage ; Keys give a good feel, solid clicks - Reminds me of the keyboards used 10 plus years ago

Bit noisy - Check YouTube for Videos of typing sounds ; If you need to type while others are sleeping in the same room, might be difficult ; If you are use to the "Standard" Microsoft keyboards, The keys on the ABS are just a little closer together....

If its what your into...

 

this keyboard is amazing for what it is. if you dont want a "clicky" keyboard where you actually have to hit the keys then go and get one of those girly little apple keyboards...

Awesome, heavy duty, amazing construction, loud

you have to push hard to get the keys down, loud

No Frills Perfect Function

 

This keyboard is great. Right from the get go, I noticed its weight was something to be reckoned with. It feels sturdy enough that if it were dropped from a two story building, it would still work. Great clack/click from the keys as you type, nothing...

The keys themselves have a tiny bit of a "hollow" sound when you run your fingers over them without typing, this is a small drawback. The only other complaint is that it is a small keyboard. If they had spread it out a bit more, it would have been perfect

Great Keyboard

 

If you look down into the blue lights on the key lock area you really will blind yourself. As others noted previously, they are bright, but facing upward bright. Looking forward at them they are just regular bright, whatever that is. If you are...

Great tactile feel of the keys as they are pressed. Good, solid heavy feel keyboard. I haven't experienced spacebar problems as some had noted. I am using this for typing documents, as I love the old style clickety clack type keyboards, and for FPS...

No PS/2 connection, but I've had no Nth key rollover problems
