Summary: Very disappointment, it has not even been a day, let alone have a day and a LED already died!
Pros: Firm build
Cons: I have only used it for a couple hours and one led already died. Its the "L" key that died, and during the couple of hours that used it this keyboard i was mainly gaming. So, I barely or didnt use the "L" at all.
Summary: Sadly, CM has QC issues. I have another Cooler Master mechanical keyboard I use at work, it's great. Guess I don't trust this brand anymore.
Pros: The keyboard is nice, I like it. Seems sturdy.
Cons: My left alt key was dead on arrival. Is there no quality control? Now they want me to pay to ship this broken junk back. Adding insult to injury, try doing a google search for "rapid left alt key", it's apparently a common problem.
Pros: size and key noise n feel are great other features all as advertised
Cons: 1/3 of keys don't lite anymore that's a real bummer because the only other con was the 90 degree plug going to left out the back of keyboard which was a small inconvience but the keys starting to burn out in such a short period is a real let down
Summary: Love my cherry browns, but after six months, I have 3 LED's burnt out. I can't wait to hear how much it'll cost me in shipping to fix CM's horrible LED selection. The micro usb connector is starting to wobble too, but that's just because I have to disconnect and reconnect the keyboard after every...
Summary: After six months, I have 3 LED's burnt out. I can't wait to hear how much it'll cost me in shipping to fix CM's miserable LED selection. The micro usb connector is starting to wobble too, but that's just because I have to disconnect and reconnect the keyboard after every fourth reboot.
Pros: Cherry red switches Heavy Construction
Cons: Horrible LED lifespan Cheap micro USB connector
Summary: Many other options out there that have better lighting, better compatibility, better customer service, the same Cherry switches, and in the same price range.
Pros: Cherry switches are consistently what they are.
Cons: Why Mac users should not buy this keyboard: -The software to fix bugs (like the keyboard not being recognized at start up) only works from a Windows machine. The keyboard will work on a mac until it doesn't and then you need Windows to fix it. Why no one should buy this keyboard: -LEDs going out....
Cons: This Keyboard has been giving me considerable issues in regards to keeping it connected to my PC, in the interest of trying to fix it I purchased a new mini USB cable, and while that seemingly helped for a while the issue has been coming back. I have to re-plug it each time this happens, and the ...
Cons: This keyboard died one day after the replacement RMA expired. The board suddenly stopped working one day and no matter what I did it, my computer would not recognize the device. I tried reinstalling USB drivers, using the board on a different machine, nothing. I just find it interesting that the ...
Summary: The light behind the 5 stopped working after using it for 2 months. The lights would be a cool thing if they worked but if they fail so quickly then they are a poor gimmick. I would have saved 60 bucks and gotten the cheaper RapidFire.
Pros: Cherry MX Brown switches are great. This is pretty standard though so not something to distinguish from other keyboards with the browns. The keyboard feels solid without much flex.
Cons: The light behind the 5 stopped working after using it for 2 months. The lights would be a cool thing if they worked but if they fail so quickly then they are a poor gimmick. I would have saved 60 bucks and gotten the cheaper RapidFire. The RapidFire is a 4 star keyboard, not the best but a value ...
Cons: As a long-time mechanical keyboard user, it didn't take long to notice a fatal flaw - the keys actually activate before the tactile point. What is the point of a mechanical switch with a tactile point if the keyboard registers without giving feedback? So disappointed by this product.
