    It's a great rgb mechanical keyboard for the price. Sure there are MUCH cheaper mechical keyboards out there, but if you really really really want customizable RGB lighting, this keyboard is the most affordable (at least of those I've seen).

    I was worried the switches would be really noisy but was really surprised and delighted they were not!

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

    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

    Smooth super nice key stroke feel for mechanical without the noise. Lights are vibrant and the software is easy to use. Gameplay is very responsive and have had no issues with FPS games. Combat games such as WOT are awesome. All around superb keyboard for the price.

    Picked this keyboard up on Black Friday and so far I've been extremely satisfied. Coming from an older K40, as the summary says, it has been a great upgrade. The keys have a nice mechanical feel and the switches have the audible click but it isn't overly noisy compared to other cherry switches. The keyboard is constructed very well and feels very sturdy, if you prefer a heavier keyboard this one will not disappoint. So far this keyboard has been well worth the money, I would feel the same even if I had purchased at full price.

    LEDs are great when gaming in a dark room. I wish you can change the LED color of individual keys such as W, A, S, D.. . However it does come with different colored key caps for WASD and a few others. Excellent response of a mechanical keyboard without the loud "clacking" sound. I know some people like that, personally I don't.

    I'd heard a lot about the benefits of mechanical keyboards for gaming, so I did some research and decided to take the plunge. I dislike "clicky" keyboards, so I made sure to look for quiet or silent key switches. This keyboard uses Cherry MX Red switches, and they're generally very quiet, though I do hear some noise when keys lift back into position (not enough to bother me, though). The lighting effects are a secondary concern for me, but I had no trouble with the iCUE software, unlike other users. My lone "issue" is that this keyboard is a bit smaller than my previous one--a Logitech G510--so I'm still getting used to the positioning. The included textured WASD keys are a nice touch, however. Overall, I like this keyboard a lot and can see it getting a lot of use in the coming years.

    The strafe mk. 2 was a great keyboard for me and was my first mechanical keyboard. I used to have the razor ornata which was a membrane keyboard. I thought the ornata was good but was nothing compared to the feeling of pushing down a key on my strafe mk. 2. The silent switches are quiet and have a great and satisfying feel to them. Overall this keyboard is a great keyboard to have if you want a good mechanical keyboard at an affordable price

    Great Keyboard / Bad Wrist Rest

    Pros: The keyboard itself is amazing. It works well and was by far the most silent mech keyboard on the market. Its even quieter than some membrane keyboards I have used. Very reliable and the lighting was perfect. Cons: The only bad thing about this board, which actually lead me to return it was the wrist rest. This keyboard, along with most mechanical keyboards, is pretty thick. While this may not bother some people, for me I need a wrist rest to help compensate for the added height. I own a K95 that I use for work and thought the wrist rest would be close to that. However, it was a good inch shorter. This lead to my palms resting on the desk pretty much making the wrist rest a moot point. It's sad because it's an amazing board and if they just used the same rest as they do on the K95 it would be prefect. I even tried 3rd party rests but couldn't find one that felt right so I returned it for another K95 with MX browns.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
