Summary: Bought this for my friend's brother's birthday. My friend says his brother enjoyed it right outside the box and already started utilizing the macro keys easily. Back-lit, full size, with macro keys and from a reputable brand? I don't see how it wasn't a good deal. CM Storm might have released the Ultimate recently, which may be a newer, better(?) version, but if you're willing to shave a few bucks, this version works just fine.
There are tons of options, so save time and buy this one—you won't regret it.

Summary: I ordered the excellent Cherry Blue version, as I type a lot. Some users have complained of the lack of lighting levels, but mine has four lighting variations at three lighting levels, which is plenty for me. Pros: -amazing for typing; increased my WPM by about 8%. -Crisp performance with very tactile feedback. -Light touch works—no need to hammer the keys. -Full size, so if you're like me, you'll be in heaven. I rarely strike the wrong key, and my hands don't cramp.
Summary: It's an awesome keyboard. With absolutely no problems. Also I run windows 8.1 with An SSD and I can boot to the bios with this keyboard no problem after installing the drivers. I wish the macro keys on the left were detachable because sometimes I think it's the edge of the keyboard like I'm used to and I press them and get lost but it's really more I just need to get used to it more. Also the Wrist rest is nice. I like it.
Summary: Great keyboard. VERY responsive. Takes some getting used to a new keyboard but this is absolutely a delicious product! The keys are kinda loud but thats par for the course with mechanical keys. I may just do a washer mod to make it quieter. Also the removable keys make it possible for me to make this a DVORAK keyboard.
