Summary: I bought this as my first mechanical keyboard 3 years ago, and haven't looked back. It's the little things. You really don't notice the problems with rubber dome keyboards until they're gone. It's a bit expensive, but you get what you pay for.
Pros: -Very comfortable and natural feel. -Doesn't wear unevenly, unlike cheaper keyboards. Every key needs the exact same force to register. This means you can type faster without accidentally transposing letters because one clicked a little faster than the other. -The extra weight makes it more stabl...
Cons: -"Silent" is a bit of a misnomer. It's definitely louder than non-mechanical keyboards, but it isn't too bad either. -Can be difficult for non touch typists (friends and family).
Summary: This keyboard is heavy. It's almost like it's built out of actual stuff. My old keyboard was wireless and had more keys and a larger footprint, but weights substantially less. Makes me think that my old keyboard was made of styrofoam.
Pros: - Awesome Feel - Awesome Sound - Awesome Aesthetics - Saves desk space - Keeps siblings and friends off of my computer
Cons: - Shows dust easily (minor) - Thick cord comes a bit kinked up (minor) - Makes it impossible for siblings and friends to borrow my computer
Summary: I bought this keyboard for the experience of typing. I definitely got my money's worth the second I started using it. When I had a normal labeled-keyboard I found myself cheating very often by looking down to see the first letter I am typing.
Pros: 1. Mechanical keys are pleasant to type. Going from a non-mechanical keyboard to a mechanical keyboard was a big upgrade for me so I really appreciate the tactical feedback from typing. 2. The typing noise is pleasing and give me reassurance when I hit a key. 3. Very quick registration from the k...
Summary: Soooo addicting. The sound, the smell, the feel, and all the things. It is overall great. Many people complain about the glossy finish, but I don't really see that as a downside because I don't rest my hands on that part of the keyboard and it really doesn't collect that much dust.
Pros: This keyboard is great! This is my first mechanical keyboard and I was kind of skeptical that the price was worth it. After only typing on it for part of a day I'm hooked. The response from the keyboard is fantastic and it very addicting to type on. I have tried both speed typing, programming and...
Cons: It isn't really "silent." With the o-ring mod it muffles the sound and makes it feel a bit more like the standard run of the mill keyboard. I personally didn't appreciate the difference the orings made and decided not to install them. I would say if you are looking for true silence you look at so...
Summary: I bought this keyboard to use at work and to help to correct the bad typing habits I've picked up over the years. It's definitely helped me and now I am getting much better and more accurate at laying down text, which is terrific!
Pros: This is the first mechanical keyboard I've bought and I am quite happy with it. The unit has good weight and looks great to boot. The buttons feel very crisp and it isn't uncomfortable to use. The USB ports are a nice touch and I love the overall sleek-but-subtle design.
Cons: This keyboard isn't exactly "silent" and doesn't have any special features. It also picks up fingerprints and debris easily but obviously that is going to hold true for almost any keyboard that is used on a daily basis.
Summary: Super high quality. It's not the best for new typists or those who still get caught up on trickier letters/words but great for anyone looking for a well-built piece of hardware that looks and performs at the top of its class.
Pros: It's blank. If you can touch-type this won't make a difference at all to you and will significantly increase the intimidation factor when non-touch-typists see your keyboard. This will force you to stop looking at the keyboard while you type. You can still glance at the keyboard if you wish but y...
Cons: It's blank. If you haven't memorized what symbols are where in the number row you're in for a fun game of guess-and-check. If you don't know how to touch-type this is likely the worst keyboard you could possibly purchase until you are able to learn.
Summary: Aside from only having 6-key RO now, and polling on my USB bus (which is what I wanted to avoid, hence buying the mechanical keyboard) I love it.
Pros: Great mechanical keyboard. Solidly built, feels good under the fingers. N-key rollover* if that's what you're looking for.
Cons: On my original system, I had separate mouse/keyboard PS2 ports. The keyboard worked great, and had true N-key rollover. That system then crapped out, so I built a new one. I sought a motherboard exclusively with PS2 ports so I could retain the NKRO functionality. The board I bought came with a co...
Summary: -i've found that this keyboard intimidates my friends or loved ones who are not touch-typists... for example, my boyfriend doesn't like to use my computer when i'm not the one typing. then again, some might view this as a plus. -the keyboard arrived with a squeaky key, which seems to be normal.
Pros: -cherry mx brown keys means the "middle ground between gaming and typist keyboards." i agree with this. -sleek design with no labels -clickyclickyclicky -durable and easy to clean
Cons: -does not reciprocate when i try to cuddle with it at night
Summary: I liked it so much that I bought two so that I could swap out the raised keys F, J, and 5. Yeah, that much.
Pros: Best keyboard I've ever used. I type faster, repeated keystrokes are no longer a problem, and even my typing error rate has dropped. If typing with this keyboard is wrong, then I don't want to be right.
