Summary: It's a great keyboard and feels good. It also has a USB 3.0 output on it. On the negative side, if too many keys are pressed in quick succession, a character will be entered indefinitely until another key is pressed. That is not to say that the key is actually physically stuck. It simply sends the character to the computer indefinitely. This problem does not occur in Windows 7.
Sticking shift key; not all keys are Cherry mechanical

Summary: I didn't realize it until I'd been using the keyboard for a couple of days, and had discarded the box, but the right shift key sticks down if pressed over near it's right end. The first time it happened I couldn't figure out why I was getting strange selection behavior. It was making me crazy. Also, the inconsistent feel caused by using the Cherry mechanical switches for the letters and numbers, but something very different for the function keys, arrow keys, etc.
Summary: I have absolutely fallen in love with this keyboard. I've had it for less than 24 hours, but I can hardly put into words what an absolute joy it is to type on this. I've been an avid gamer for years, since the days of Quake III Arena and Counterstrike LAN parties, and even well before that. I'm also a college student majoring in computer programming. Needless to say, I spend a great deal of time on my computer, and always have.
Summary: As mentioned in the cons section. The domed keys in this keyboard are very bad... worse than the 30 dollars microsoft keyboard's keys. The mechanical keys are fantastic, but since I rely on the non-mechanical keys often, this is an annoyance. Will probably upgrade very soon.
Pros: -Price when on sale, -Media keys are convenient
Cons: -Not all keys are mechanical, as one who often use the delete/pg up/pg down and the function keys. This is very annoying
Summary: The extended wide keys on this keyboard uses "CHERRY TYPE" stabilizers. For whatever reason, on this build, the stabilizers tend to stick. Since the mx-red springs are so light, the stabilizers can actually HOLD the key in the activated position, preventing it from resetting. There has been numerous reports of "sticky-key" on the backspace key, space-bar key, etc. This is likely the reason.
Summary: The board is quite well made, on first inspection. It takes some time to get used to the cherry mx reds, but the "wrist pad" is an absolute joke. I literally broke it in about 4 minutes. No directions to attach or take off, and two of the joints have already broke from normal use. This is a useless piece anyways, but that is very annoying to have a $100 keyboard have faulty parts. I payed for it, it shouldn't break that easy...questionable quality.
Summary: Well to sum it up I'm a little dissapointed. I want to start by saying the keypboard is very well built, but there are a couple of issues I'm having. The F1-F12 keys at the top are way to close compared to the other keyboards I have used. (I play WOW and I'm always hitting the F1 key when I mean to hit the number 1 key.) The other issue is the keyboard typing area size. The keyboard typing key area seems really small compared to other keyboards I've used.
Great design, but has a dealbreaking problem(for me)

Summary: (I'm typing this review with the K60 right now and I love using it. I look forward to typing things or playing games because it feels that good.) -Looks great. Feels great. Not your typical looking "ricer"/"gamer" keyboard. Stays classy like San Diego. -Easy to clean because of its "open" design. No more getting pieces of chips or something stuck under the keys. -Comes with grippy red keycaps for the commonly used FPS game buttons. -Sturdy build quality.
Summary: UPDATE: After a month of owning the keyboard I can throw in a few more comments. * Key letters are already fading off. I do not have sweaty hands at all and I use the keyboard fairly often. For this price there is no excuse for the lettering rubbing off... I can barely see 3-4 of the letters right now. * Love the media keys, just wish they were the same height as the other keys Pros: * Media keys - one of my main requirements for a keyboard * Cherry MX Red switches.
3.5 Stars: Cost cutting trade-offs killed this perfect keyboard.
