Very poor durability.

Christopher L., Newegg
4 November 2015
  • Summary: This is a great keyboard at first. I gave it a 5-star rating a year ago. But with multiple keys now not responding to fast input, I have never had a keyboard begin to malfunction so quickly. One year is completely unacceptable at this price. I have never traveled with this keyboard.
  • Pros: Very nice when new. Win-key disable is a nice function.
  • Cons: Certain keys have stopped responding to fast input, such as the 4 key, 9 key, and ' key.

Great...when it's actually working

Jeffrey Touze, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought the MX Cherry Reds for gaming, at first I didn't like them, but I adjusted quite nicely to the quickness and effortless actuation pressure of the reds. Such a nifty keyboard: sleek, responsive, transportable it's a great board really.

Nice feel, but horrible LEDs

Brian Y., Newegg
23 July 2015
  • Pros: Cherry mechanical switches are always nice, and Browns are my favorite. They keyboard also seems to be durable (except for the LEDs) and hefty.
  • Cons: After a couple months of use, 8 LEDs have gone out. While LED outages do not affect the usability of the keyboard, it sure is annoying to have a spotty keyboard after 10 months of use.

Short LED Lifespan

Chas E., Newegg
20 July 2015
  • Summary: Noticed two LED's died within a couple months, did some research and found out this is a common thing for a few of their keyboards. About a year later I now have 12 dead and probably more to come. Research before you buy.
  • Pros: Sturdy build quality
  • Cons: Shoddy LED's

Keycaps come off and break very, very easily

Andrew Kantor "Writer, Reader, Photographer, Geek", Amazon
6 July 2015
  • Summary: This could have been a great keyboard, but the low quality of the construction ruined it. Most notably, keycaps came off and the plastic underneath that holds them to the switches broke -- not one or two keys, but half a dozen. If you buy this, be prepared to replace the keycaps.

Good keyboard/bad cable design

David B., Newegg
10 June 2015
  • Summary: I have had this keyboard for 2 years now and while I loved it I don't think i would buy it again. The keyboard itself is absolutely wonderful in the fact that the keys feel great, it is nice and compact for gaming on the go, and it feels solid like I would never have to worry about it breaking.
  • Pros: -Great keyboard design -compact and easy to transport for those on the go gamers -keys feel amazing
  • Cons: -USB cable is prone to loose connection -left windows key and alt key are prone to bad connection and quit working

User Review

Gabriel B., Newegg
26 March 2015
  • Summary: I should have heeded all the other reviews but I took it with a grain of salt. Overall, this is exactly the keyboard I'm looking for and my only reason to give this review was to add to the chorus of voices with dead LEDs within a short span of time.
  • Pros: Love the feel and heft of the keyboard and, providing the LEDs don't die, I love the backlit display. Nice, compact design. Standardized keycaps so it's easily customized.
  • Cons: 2 weeks in and already there's LEDs going out.

Could have been great.

Autumn L., Newegg
18 March 2015
  • Summary: I should have known from other reviews that this would be a problem, but thought I'd give it a try. RMA'd.
  • Pros: Nice, professional, compact design. Fn key and media keys and well-layed-out. I love Cherry MX Browns. Individual LEDs for each key.
  • Cons: Backspace key rattles as if the guides are misaligned. In less than a day, one of the LED back lights went out. I may be picky, but I'm unwilling to deal with these since this is in less than a day and more issues are sure to come up; at this price, even these are unacceptable.
