      The premier keyboard for Minecraft

      Having tried out a ton of different gaming keyboards, my son did a lot of online research and narrowed down his choices to this keyboard and one other. This does not disappoint for a myriad of reasons. First, being picky about aesthetics, I love this because the brushed dark grey metal doesn’t look cheap at all. The ambient lighting is very cool (and the lights synch with the Razer cobra mouse which we purchased too) and your fingers just fly off the keys! Who knew that an 11 year old could type 105WPM with two fingers? My kid can with this keyboard! Recommended for the gamer in your life.

      Absolutely flawless feel. The military grade Metal finish and feel of the Razer green switches that last up to 80 million keystrokes make this keyboard a must have for me. I don't use anything else. A 10/10 experience for gaming. Absolute perfection for typing. The individually lit RGB keys allow you full customization for any lighting configuration you could dream of with 16.8 million color options. The durability is outstanding and is unmatched by anything else out there in my opinion.

      Other than one key (lower right enter) that keeps hopping off, I've just one complaint: the alternate characters for keys don't light up ... only the main characters. That can make it difficult to locate the special symbol you need in a hurry. Oh, yeah ... another problem: under Windows 10, this keyboard wants to go totally unlit and unresponsive now and then. A reboot fixes it. Love the feel of the keys.

      In this product your paying for the build quality over everything else. This is one SOLID keyboard. I don't think I could bend or break it unless I really put some effort into it. You can probably find another mechanical keyboard with RGB lighting for less but not one that's as meaty as this one.

      This keyboard is really awesome! Great quality! At first I thought it wouldn't be click enough but it is. Solid construction. And you can control the lighting through the computer instead of typing in weird keyword combos. I suspect that it will last a long time too!
