To me, a keyboard is a personal thing. I tried a lot before deciding on this one. This one was the most comfortable and felt the best. I went from an older keyboard, that was starting to fail, to this one. It was a huge leap forward and it works great for what I do, FPS gaming, email, Facebook and other basic typing stuff. If I had a functional newer keyboard, with mechanical switches and it was working, I'm not sure it would be worth it. Again, it's a personal decision, but if you are in the market for a new keyboard, this one is great.
