Nice keyboard but with weird ten-key-ishness


I did like the feel of the CM Storm but I never could get my long-ingrained muscle-memory to understand how to not hit the wrong keys when I went to navigate. The TKL footprint was nice (I can stand having my mouse pushed out by a ten-key that I don't...

- TKL footprint - good switches (blue) - quality - backlit

- weird ten-key configuation

Excellent for the money


I bought this keyboard to replace my Logitech G710+ because i needed a smaller keyboard for more mouse room (small desk). This keyboard does not disappoint in the slightest. I love that its a tenkeyless form factor but with the number pad so I get the...

-Genuine Cherry switches -Full function keyboard in a compact form factor -Function lock -Very solid build quality -Gorgeous lighting -Detachable USB cord -Windows key lock

-Wished the breathing mode had more variance between dim and bright backlighting

Great Keyboard


Overall, this is a great keyboard. If you don't want to give up the number pad but still want a compact layout, this keyboard is for you. However, if you bounce between the numpad and arrow keys a lot (E.G. speadsheets), then you should definitely...

Cherry Brown keys feel great. Not too noisy, but still has a nice, light tactile click. However, I may be a bit biased since this is my first mechanical keyboard. The size of the keyboard is really nice. Especially since it still has the number pad!...

I only have two complaints 1: You can never completely turn off the lights on this keyboard. When you have numlock off, the arrow keys light up to show you that you can use the arrow keys. When numlock is on, the numlock light is on. It's not a dim...

great keyboard, nonstandard bottom row


this is a great keyboard, mine came with reds but i have two cm boards with blues and they are all top notch quality. the board is pretty heavy, which you should expect, and the numpad is pretty cool. very nice board if you don't plan on switching out...

there are two issues with this board. one is that the cable routing channels are pretty small, they fit a braided cable very snuggly, which is good, but it is too small for double braided cables. the biggest problem is that the bottom row has non...

Mine came with one LED burned out which I was not happy with. Newegg did offer to replace it but I'm afraid another will come back in worse shape based on the reviews I've read about CM keyboards. I liek how it feels and looks so 1 LED is not a huge...

Feels great! Looks great!

One LED does not work. =(

Great Keyboard So Far


I really like this keyboard so far, and if no more LEDS go out , and the keys work, ill be happy. Really great keyboard so far. Highly recommend. Mine probablly was the odd one where something didnt work. Im ok the the current leds not working as i...

This keyboard is the perfect size to fit my computer desk keyboard pull out with my mouse. Keys work great, i really like the BLUE CHERRY MX switches. Great loud click. Good tactile feed back when pressing keys. the blue brightness is perfect, bright...

4 LEDS were burnt out the first 2 seconds i had it on. the 2, 0, 00 and . from the numpad. Also the scroll lock LED doesnt come on ever. Not sure it works but i dont use SL anyways. So i do wonder how long the rest will last.

Overall good keyboard


Overall, I'd give it a 4/5 rating because of the weird layout configuration. I regret getting this over just a normal tenkeyless design. I also thought that it would have came with white backlighting, but it turns out that the switch type determines...

Cherry MX Blues Backlighting is VERY BRIGHT Compact Windows Key Lock DETACHABLE (BRAIDED) CABLE Solid build quality, doesn't flex much at all.

The numpad/arrow key layout is very hard to get used to. I've owned this for a month now and with daily use am still getting confused on how to use it sometimes due to the fact that it can be tough to distinguish when backlighting is on. The NUMLOCK,...

Had To RMA


If did not have to RMA the product due to the 2 errors then it would be a five star product. I normally do not review a product after only 3 hours of use. But from what i have experienced. It is a vary nice, Small, Clicky and sexy product. It is worth...

-Well made construction -Well lite back light with option to change brightness -Nice small gives space on desk -Sexy sounding clicky cherry mx blues

-Had to RMA due to the "A" key not clicking or having a tactical feel -On the num pad the 2 key's LED was placed upside down witch made it so you cant see the led light illuminate it

High Quality Product


I love this keyboard and its my first Cherry MX Blue keyboard.

Very Responsive key switches Has media keys Small Cool lighting modes Different brightness levels Very sturdy build LED's are super bright Thick, braided and detachable micro USB cable

when numlock is enabled the keys 2, 0, 00 , . are not lit up. This throws me off a little . But this isn't an issue if the keyboard isn't illuminated
