    Nice feeling keyboard with pretty lights

    This keyboard has been pretty nice to type on and that's really all that's important. But since almost all keyboards have fancy lights now a days, it's probably a good idea to compare those. As far as lighting goes, this one is the nicest I've seen. The keys have a small gap under them that the light shines through. Other keyboards kind of have their lighting segregated under each key where you can only see the lights on the tops of the keys. This makes the motion when animating the lights look a little choppier. Motion on this keyboard looks nice and smooth because it can be seen under the keys as well. I like it, but I can see other people might not. Software-wise, it was pretty easy to set up with only a couple of weird issues. The first one was that, although I'm sure the same software is used for all of their keyboards, going to the support section of their site would list individual keyboards and a download for each one. Not a big deal, just seemed strange. When installing the software, it needed to close my Razer Synapse software. It's the older version of Razer Synapse so maybe the newer versions don't have this issue, but I just found that to be strange as well. After that, it was all good. Software feels light weight and easy to use. There are a lot of lighting options and there was even an advanced mode where you could download and add more (I didn't try to download any but the option was there) All in all, I like the way the keyboard feels, which is the most important part. All the extra lights and frills are just an added bonus. There are no bindable function keys or other extra things like that so pay attention to that if you are looking for extra macro keys.

    This keyboard is so cool with all the different lighting settings available. Not sure why it's called a gaming keyboard though. It's setup just as any other keyboard. I'm coming from a Merc Stealth and that was a gaming keyboard - separate keys off to the side. Anyway, this really is a nice keyboard. It's mechanical, very heavy and just feels great while typing. I've never been a fan of wrist rests but this one really benefits from the included one. Although mine is a little warped but will hopefully flatten out after time. All in all, this is a very nice keyboard and looks great with the lights.

    This is my first time purchasing a mechanical keyboard and I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a mechanical keyboard. The lights and the additional wrist rest are super convenient.
