Summary: I love this keyboard. Purchased for a Linux system and have zero complaints. Works perfectly, wonderful feel on the keys and everything where you'd expect it to be. Don't care much for the extra column of function keys on left side of the board but other than that its awesome.
Summary: I love this keyboard. Someone asked me why would I spend so much on just a keyboard. Well, if you type a lot you'll appreciate the tactile feedback and audible click of every key depression. And it does not take a weightlifters finger to actuate a key. If you work in dim or dark environs you'll appreciate the easy glow of the keyboard. The level of lighting can be adjusted. When I write in the dark I want to control my media player.
Summary: I am typing with this keyboard right now, it is wonderful. Having the back light at night is great for games where you leave the home row. It has a great tactile feel. If you are on the fence about mechanical keyboards, get one. I cannot imagine typing on anything else. The only downside of this keyboard is that it will not be active by the time your PC goes through POST, so you will need to attach a different keyboard if you wish to make modifications before boot.
Summary: I purchased this keyboard for my gaming rig and it did not disappoint. The keyboard is very well built with a very sturdy design. The back light is bright enough to where i can game with only the light of my screen. I waited to post a review as I wanted it thoroughly tested. I have had keyboard fall apart on me before. This has passed all the test. I would recommend this keyboard to anyone looking to have a good sturdy keyboard for everyday use.
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.
