Summary: Perhaps it was my mistake for not researching a bit more, but had I known ahead of time, my nagging ego would have probably shelled out more for the RGB model. It's a good keyboard for those who want a good mechanical keyboard that is pretty straight-forward, but maybe its not for people who want to...
Cons: I was happy with the overall quality of the device, definitely. It's a very nice product, but I was slightly disappointed that it is not supported by Corsair Utility Engine (CUE). Most of my equipment is Corsair brand, so I was a little eager to complete it with a keyboard, but it turns out only ...
Summary: Maybe it's because I've heard so much praise about this keyboard that I had too high of expectation. It is very good keyboard but does have a few flaws for me to give it perfect score. First, the clicky feeling of the CherryMX Brown is less that what I expected.
Summary: It would have been perfect if my escape key didn't need so much force to work. Sometimes the lighting is a bit of an eyesore when looking from the keyboard and back to the monitor. Even though I don't use macros I would have appreciated some if the time came.
Pros: • Cherry MX red switches feel nice whether gaming or typing • Lighting is good for any time of day • Easy to clean with raised key level • Contoured/Textured gaming keycaps • Solid Build and included wrist rest • Media keys and extra USB port
Cons: • No textured keycaps for arrow keys • Mine had a malfunctioning escape key • No macros at a high price
First mechanical keyboard = Looks great. Feels great.

Summary: This isn't your typical review, where you rate it when you get it. I've had this keyboard under heavy daily use for the past 22 months, since June 2013. Prior to this keyboard, I was using your run of the mill $8-10 keyboard for gaming, replacing when the keys worn down.
Summary: Awesome keyboard. Love the silver with red led. Though i wish you could get in a brown switch in the silver, not gun metal. So I just took the keyboard apart and put in my cherry switches. My keyboard now has a mixture of cherry reds, Browns, blues, a black and a clear.
