Summary: I was looking for a very unique design that I thought would be comfortable for me to use. I am a gamer and I type a lot. Most of my time is spent on the computer. I don't like very loud keyboards. This design has worked out well for me. It is bulky on the desk and has features I don't use, but I bought it for its customizable layout. I would be sad if I had to go back to a standard keyboard now. lol This is a very cool keyboard to own, especially if you are a gamer.
