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.
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.
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.

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.
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
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.
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.
Summary: I have QuickFire Rapid-I for a few months. It is very solid keyboard, but I have few issues. F5 key back light does not comes on, and while playing game, D key stuck and unable to control the game, until reset (get killed), and when computer comes back from sleep mode, computer does not recognize...
