    Awesome Keyboard

    Bought this keyboard about 6 months ago and it's probably the coolest part of my gaming setup! The colors are crisp and the interchangeable tactile buttons feel great. The lighting with iCue makes for some great customisable color schemes that can get quite complicated!

    Quiet, very colorful but a little too mushy for me

    Quiet, very colorful but a little too mushy for me - this is probably a personal preference as I am coming from Razer greens (very clickly, VERY LOUD). I was looking for something that had the click factor of the razor without the loudness. Unfortunately, this really delivered on the quiet part but I just didn't feel good clacking away on it.

    A quiet keyboard for being mechanical. The color led lighting options are great.

    The colors look great and the keyboard feel nice and smooth. the program to change colors is not very user friendly. It took awhile to figure out how to get the colors to just stay one color.

    Quiet, fast, and colorful. I was impressed by the speed of typing on it, as I have the strafe red, with cherry mx red keys, but the layout on this board is so much better. Whether it's the spacing or what, ity works.

    Great Keyboard for Aesthetics and Usability

    This computer is very heavy duty. I love pretty much everything about this keyboard. It still has that professional feel, yet is fun and colorful. It has many color settings on the keyboard as well as brightness levels. There are skip, pause/play, and forward buttons as well as a scroll bar for volume control. The keyboard is a bit large so I would recommend a large desk space and mouse pad when using. The only negative thing OI can come up with is that the silent keyboard aspect give it this faint hum whenever you smash a key while typing or gaming. If you are using headphones, I have no doubt that you would be bothered. Overall, I love this keyboard and I will be buying this in the future.

    When I bought my new desktop it came with this tiny lil keyboard....needed an upgrade...im not a gamer but often prefer lower light. The lighting us wonderful I only twice have played with the color setup. Love it so much. Nice feel to upgrade back to full size and mechanical keyboard without all the extras needed for a gamer

    I debated on this keyboard for a solid four of five months before going into a best buy, asking an associate if I could open the box to test the keys, and then immediately buying it on the spot. Keys/switches The keys are springy, much like MX Brown keys are, but are about the volume of a large membrane board, something like the old lenovo wireless keyboards if anyone remembers those. If you have any experience with the free keyboard from iBuypower it's about the same volume, maybe a little bit quieter. The keys are also very well spaced which is good if you are someone who has larger fingers, or tends to type on the edges of the keys. RGB The RGB lighting has a fully adjustable brightness setting in the iCue software, and of course full customization of colors and themes. Though personally I find anything other than a static color to be distracting the option is definitely there. Fit/finish The rubber wrist guard is comfortable, and almost necessary as the edge without it's quite sharp. The metal finish panel at the top of the keyboard is a very smooth brushed aluminium that feels very high quality. The rubber feet, and the wight of the board keeps everything well in place, even on a smooth desk. Volume rocker is responsive and has a good amount of resistance to it. All in all if you like the feeling of a mechanical keyboard, but MX Blue/Brown/Red switches drive you insane I HIGHLY recommend this board, you will not be disappointed.

    Beautiful keyboard. I got this keyboard with a Razer Mamba Elite mouse and the two look like they were made to go together. Especially at night, the glowing colors are so lovely to watch. The keys are a bit higher than the standard keyboard I was using before, which has taken some getting used to. Also, this keyboard comes with an extra set of WASD and QWER keys that are slightly slightly textured and slanted. I guess they're to help gamers get a better grip. I did try replacing the QWER keys as I am a League player, but couldn't get used to the weirdness of the keys being at odd angles and ended up putting the standard keys back. Luckily the keyboard comes with a little device for popping keys out of place. Overall a great keyboard but I would recommend testing the responsiveness of the keys before purchasing if possible. The keys do have a bit of resistance and height that some people may find hard to adjust to. It is definitely not a "soft" keyboard.
