Just What I was Looking for!
25 February 2014
Summary: I'm a long time user of the MS Natural 4000 keyboard and thought that was a very good keyboard. I've also use the IBM Model M and enjoyed the click sound it made when typing. I have tried a few others (Freestyle2, Rosewill), but this is by for the best keyboard I've typed on.
Summary: I recently purchased this product as I had heard great things about mechanical keyboards. This keyboard has been really great to use. Tactile feel and excellent response. Overall a fantastic purchase.
Summary: I've bought 2 of these keyboards and recommended friends and co-workers to buy a half dozen more. The quality is good, the size is fantastic, the typing experience is great. I use the brown in the office because it's not as loud and still has a great feel. However, for home where I do a lot of gaming and working, the blues I believe have an overall superior experience. That said, blues are pretty loud/clicky so your mileage may vary.
Summary: Update: Got a replacement and it seems to work much better. The cable is more snug in both the connection in the back and in the cable management grooves. For extra security i used some black duct tape to secure the wire in the grooves so that it cannot move. So far so good for this keyboard. Can't give it 5 stars because of the connection but Amazon did make it very easy to get a replacement. Now that it's working properly it's a great keyboard.
Summary: After about 14-15 months of owning the keyboard the mini usb in the keyboard seems to have come loose. When plugging in or bumping the cable the keyboard will output a large string of characters and turn on the scroll lock key until it gets fiddled with. Got an rma from cooler master and im having it sent in.
Pros: Love how it sounds and feels to type on it. Also really like how it has a removable cord because I tend to use it in my schools computer labs so the detachable cable lets me transport it to school and back easily without having to wrap the cable around the keyboard or rubberband it to the keyboard while transporting it.
Cons: When I first got it I noticed the caps lock key was a little too thick and would rub against the led and stop short of hitting the metal plate in the keyboard and would instead stop on the led. However that was a easy fix I just pulled off they capslock key and dremeled down the little plastic window on the key a little and it was just fine.
Summary: So I like this keyboard. I only have one complaint, and it's that they capslock key feels "sticky". It's not that it sticks, it's that it doesn't go nicely up or down when you hit it from the side; it drags. It drags enough for me to come write this review. This is one of my most used keys because I use vim and have it remapped. After about 8 months with this keyboard it's still just as obnoxious to press as day 1.
Summary: Once you use a mechanical keyboard it's hard to go back to rubber dome keyboards. I am using this tenkeyless keyboard right now and I can tell you that it's a delight. A quick review: PROS: 1. It feels a whole lot better than a standard rubber dome keyboard 2. Looks clean and modern with the numblock keys removed 3. Great finish and quality 4. Decent price for a mechanical keyboard 5.
Summary: Can't complain. What you see is what you get. Be aware that the font on the keys is a little "space agey" and not so traditional. Any keycaps you buy are likely to be different fonts than what comes with this board. USB cord is great quality. It's not as fancy as a Ducky or Filco, but it's nice and clicky. That's all I was really looking for so I'm satisfied.
Cheap connector construction ruins an otherwise good keyboard

Summary: I bought this item on June 27th 2013. Around September/October, it started malfunctioning frequently. While typing, random series of letters/numbers would appear, and the keys on the number row would stop working. I realized that this stopped when I fiddled with the cable. It only happened once every few weeks, so I didn't pay much attention to it (and at first thought it may have been a driver issue). But it happened more and more frequently.
