Premium Mechanical Keyboard, for a premium price

  • Summary: Excellent cherry red mechanical keyboard with excellent features. It has USB3.0 extension port, microphone & headphone sockets, on a quality 18K Gold-plated connector braided cable. Rock solid construction, with adjustable blue back lighting & volume controls. Five profiles and five G keys for up to 70 macros Full anti ghosting across the whole keyboard, you don't normally see this on USB keyboards. Been using mine for a few months now, excellent for typing on & gaming.

  • Summary: This is my first gaming mechanical keyboard, and I gotta say next to a SSD upgrade, this is simply the best upgrade to my computer use I've experienced. Coming from the similarly priced Roccat Valo (non-mechanical true) gaming board, there's no other comparison. They LEDs are 5x as bright, the construction more durable, and the software more intuitive and less prone to glitches.
  • Pros: Beautiful construction, great key feedback, bright LED keys.
  • Cons: Honestly, none.

  • Summary: This is my second mechanical keyboard, and the first keyboard that I truly admire the most. Unlike Corsair's offerings (K60 and K90), this keyboard features the same Cherry MX Red switches, however this keyboard does not cheap out with partial dome switch nonsense, it's all 100% mechanical here. I also liked that the software GIGABYTE has provided does not boot from startup, so it's not intrusive at all.
  • Pros: -Has built-in USB 3.0 (but requires connection to port on M/B), only keyboard (at time of writing) with this feature, -Fully mechanical Cherry MX Red switches, unlike Corsair with partial dome switch nonsense, -Blue backlighting, which matches very well with my Corsair M60 mouse. I liked this feature., -Cool looking and comfortable wrist rest (with no ugly logos), reminds me of the Logitech Wave keyboard that I owned years ago, -Includes a key cap puller (about $5 val...
  • Cons: -Price, but this keyboard feels much better to type on than my previous mechanical keyboard, so this con is negated out. Well worth the price. Otherwise, there are no real cons., -As stated in a YouTube unboxing review of this keyboard, the box is HUGE (cue in the "that's what she said" joke). But the keyboard itself is actually smaller than my previous mechanical keyboard, so I'm assuming that it was packaged big to protect the keyboard from damage.

  • Pros: - Feels very well made and durable, - Well priced compared to other mechanical keyboards, - Very pleasant to type on, - Back-lighting can go from very dim to very bright
  • Cons: - Only blue back-lighting, - The macro keys' software is kinda slow to respond

  • Summary: i was looking for a long time on what keyboard to buy, i went to the store and felt almost every keyboard. Stay away from those corsiark60 and k90 compaired to this those things are CHEEEEAAAP. the leds are amazing and the addition of a usb 3.0 on the keybnoard is nice because i only have 3.0 on the back of my computer so that will be handy.
  • Pros: Very well built,, leds can be adjusted to whatever brightnness you want., heavy which i like for keyboard.
  • Cons: none

  • Summary: I have had this keyboard for about 3 days and I must say what a difference it makes in every day use. The keys feel so nice to type on. Some prefer blues/browns for typing but for me I think this is the best of both worlds if you game and type on your keyboard. I find the Black switches to be very noisy compared to the reds, thats why I chose this one instead. I have switched from my logitech g15 v2 and what a difference. BUY THIS!
  • Pros: - Excellent tactile feel for both gaming and every day use, - Nicely illuminated keys, - Ghost macro features are good, - Very solid, weighs a ton
  • Cons: - No dedicated media keys

Fantastic Keyboard

Colin S., Newegg

  • Summary: They keyboard is perfect for me. It's my first mechanical keyboard, I upgraded from a razer lycosa(worst keyboard driver I've ever seen). Love the cherry mx red switches. Great looking keyboard, reminds me of something they would have pulled out of a futuristic tank. Like I said in my cons section there are a few convenience things that could be added but nothing that really takes away from it.
  • Pros: Tons of features
  • Cons: They're aren't many and frankly this is going to be me being really picky trying to find stuff wrong.

Awesome

  • Summary: Well, with the actuation being so small on a mechanical keyboard I was typing some words like I was dyslexic. I've since corrected that and now type with confidence and precision. It was interesting to know that a dome keyboard almost trains you to type differently. Now when I go to work, I wish I had a mechanical keyboard. They'll never get one though, I work for the state of Texas and they won’t spend tax dollars on forward tech.
  • Pros: First off, I love this keyboard. It has a nice build quality (Solid, heavy, sturdy, and just overall feels comfortable)
  • Cons: None yet
