      Got this on a whim when i was browsing the store. I didn't own a mechanical keyboard before, using an older Razer keyboard that wasn't so great after years of use. This keyboard took/ is taking a bit of getting used to, mainly because i got the red version that is very smooth. The keys don't 'click' because of how the 'red' keys are set up. Instead they smoothly press down, which took some getting used to as i like to rest my thumb on my space-bar when gaming, and would occasionally jump accidentally due to me pressing my thumb down on it too much. I really like this new keyboard though, because it's a lot more comfortable than my older keyboard, and being able to change the keycaps and take them off for cleaning is a huge bonus.

      The Cherry MX Red switches are one of the quietest of the mechanical keyboard switches. This keyboard is compact and has a clean design. The build and feel is quality and it does what it does wonderfully. No drivers are needed and unlike with Logitech, this keyboard remembers your light settings without needing extra software running in the background. My favorite gaming mechanical keyboard of the ones I've tried.

      This is in my opinion the best gaming keyboard you can buy. The quality and craftsmanship are second to none. I absolutely love the metal frame of the keyboard. The keys are also great to type with. Not to loud but definitely have great feedback.

      This is a very reliable and dependable keyboard. I've had 0 issues with it so far. Compact but keeps the same key layout. My son spilled soup all over (and in it). Pulled the thing apart and used an air compressor to blow off the soup. Good as new. Definitely recommend.

      Excellent mechanical keyboard. Love the MX Cherry switches. Keyboard build quality is top notch. Metal base feels fantastic. I have noticed 0 pinging noise when typing. Feels amazing to type on. N-key rollover works great. Note that N-key rollover is not enabled by default.

      Letting you know the keys are very sensitive. I'm used to the really simple keyboards, and this is my first gaming one. The keys are incredibly responsive, and requires a lighter touch or else you might be typing double letters by mistake.

      The keyboard is very precise and the lighting is cool and great for many activities besides gaming. My only concern would probably be that it doesn't have a rest for your wrist like other keyboards do. Other than that its great!
