Summary: This is a wonderful product. Keys 'feel' just right, sturdy construction, adjustable lighting is excellent, I'm not usually a wrist guard user but I really like it with this setup. I have a custom gaming chair I constructed from a Chrysler 300M driver seat and this was the finishing touch to bring it all together. A+ When this dies I will likely buy another.
Excerpt: I love this keyboard. I have never tried Cherry MX red switches yet and I'm glad I have it now. It feels amazing. The keyboard has been great. The features are basic and I use them all. I have no cons for the keyboard. If you're looking for a nice Red switch keyboard, go with this one!
Excellent gaming and typing keyboard. Beautifully built.

Summary: This keyboard has great built quality. I love the brushed aluminium base. The key does make a clacklety-clack noise, but that's to be expected from Cherry MX Red Switches. I'm not a huge fan of the red LED lighting. Thankfully it can be turned off.
Summary: I could just blab on about this keyboard blah blah blah, but I'm not gonna do that. - Requires 2 USB drives - Quiet but not silent - Easily clicks keys even with low pressure (can be annoying and frustrating) - Includes WASD 12345 Special Keys that are red and textured (barely help but why not?
Summary: I am a peripheral connoisseur of sorts. It takes me FOREVER to find peripherals I enjoy. I was INCREDIBLY excited for this keyboard. I have used many Cherry MX keyboards before, but was enticed by fully custom LEDs (as I have RGB LEDs in my computer case). So, here we go... DIM! -If you aren't using Green or Blue, the lighting is VERY dim. And YES I do have the "brightness turned all the way up.
Summary: UPDATE: Added video of the setting I have been using. I normally don't review the products I buy but I feel this actually deserves one. First impressions: Straight out of the box the keyboard LOOKS professional. It is a clean, minimalist design. There is material where there needs to be and really not much else. The switches are much more exposed than other keyboards I have seen with Cherry MX switches and it gives off the impression that the keys sit very high.
Summary: This keyboard is absolutely fantastic. The faceplate is all brushed aluminum. The red backlight is beautiful, not only are the keynames lit, but there is a gorgeous red glow behind all the keys reflecting off the aluminum faceplate. The volume roller knob is even metal! The wiring is ultra tough and sheathed. There is a USB pass-through for plugging in your mouse or other desktop items. If you have never experienced a mechanical keyboard, it's about time.
