Summary: This is my fourth cherry MX keyboard (all but one are blue). The first three were Filco - this one costs less and is their equal in every way. I'm racking my brain for something negative to say here. There is not much. The font on the keycaps is garish - I prefer the unmarked keycaps Filco offered - and the right-hand keys are ever-so-slightly harder to actuate, which is probably a matter of manufacturing variance in three or four of the home keys.
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.
Refund my keyboard for a perfect working one and CMS quickfire has my trust

Summary: I am an avid gamer and computer programmer. When I bought this keyboard I was initially pleased but I learned there are some difficulties with it. My bottom left alt key does not work at ALL. As you can imagine this makes this keyboard almost useless to me when I want to play certain games that frequently use this key. I looked up this problem and it seems a there was stock of them with this problem and that is when I bought it on sale.
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.
