Summary: I was relatively happy with my Zibal until it started to randomly cut out in use. It frequently stops working and takes a few seconds to get back up, I may have to unplug and plug it back in, I may have to reboot, and I may even have to plug in a replacement until it decides to start working again. I've had it die out on me a few times now where I'm forced to just switch to another keyboard in the meantime until it decides to fix itself.
Summary: While moving to mechanical keyboards is definitely worth it, I recommend staying away from this one. The LED system randomly died on me today and that is not an excusable thing for a keyboard that exceeds the $100 mark. This is not the first I've heard of the problems for the Zibal.
Pros: Superior feel to membrane keyboard, Black switches feel nice, Solid construction
Summary: Combined with the naos 5000 mouse for excellent results. These things are the toughest components I have ever used, extremely tough, thick but sexy(lol?_) cables, sleeved and tough! All in all, the best keyboard I have ever used.
Pros: This keyboard is fantastic, simply awesome, not as loud as youd think!
Summary: So far I haven't had any major issue with this keyboard. It's a little pricey, even on sale, but it sounds and feels a lot better than most of the other mech keyboards. The wrist rest was the deal breaker as most of the other keybaords didn't have one.
Pros: -Solid build, -Awesome cherry black switches that takes some time to get use to, -Very comfortable
Cons: -The cable is too big and short, -LED lights are uneven, -Expensive for the amount of features it has, -USB hub doesn't seem to work for some of my external drives but that could be because my mobo
Summary: I've had this bad boy for about 2 months now its an excellent addition to my setup, it looks clean and shiny, ive seen people complaining about the keys wearing off but that didnt happen to me after 2 months, would buy again!
Pros: Very heavy duty keyboard ,nice looking mat finish.
Cons: The keys are loud, do not use if your girlfriend sleeps in your room!
Summary: I have never owned a mechanical keyboard before this one. I figured I would give the black cherry switch a try and choose this model for it's plain layout and sturdy construction. Overall I am liking it and find it works well in games. The keys are all where I'd expect them to be and the dual purpose function keys that allow for media related shortcuts are handy and welcome options to have.
Pros: - sturdy construction, - 3 brightness levels for back lighting, - Option to turn off back light, turn on for just WSAD keys, or illuminate all keys, - easy to spam keys
Cons: - lighting is only in green (kinda greenish yellowish to me), - requires a fair amount of force to press keys, do not recommend for lots of typing but works well for gaming
Summary: First off, this thing is built like a tank. The comments about it being "rage proof" are completely true. I'm pretty sure if I smashed this thing over my oak desk 500 times, the desk would beg for mercy, not the keyboard. Not to mention the cord is as thick as my middle finger. The cherry blacks are amazing, I have tried the cherry blues and they are WAY to sensitive the blacks are. The layout of the keys is perfect for me.
Pros: Built like tank, cherry blacks amazing, wrist rest perfect, thick cord, usb ports, layout perfect, Lights up WASD or entire keyboard or nothing, media keys with FN, and finally green looks awesome.
