Pros: Very good keyboard, although the switch is made to OEM kailh, but using them feel good.
Cons: Switch quality control is not very good, I bought the first keyboard had to suffer double-click on the V key. Although I have to replace a new keyboard, but I'm afraid the same thing happened again.
Summary: Got my keyboard for Christmas, played a few games with it and it was amazing. That is, until I played Arma. I usually use Alt to look around freely, but my left alt key hardly works. I also use my Alt key to tab out and into things for most of the time. So, this is kind of an annoyance.
Pros: +Backlight +Key Clicks +All around great keyboard
Cons: -Only con is that my Left Alt is somewhat broken.
Summary: After a year of use, the only problem I have had with this keyboard is that my mic picks up each key stroke. I'm not sure if there is one but I would love it if there was a board like this but with some audio insulation. Other that that it is a great buy. The back-lighting is adjustable and the keys feet good. The only thing that I had to get used to was the shift functions are printed below the primary function instead of above like on most boards. So the '!
1 for 3 on Razer products, but when it works it's great.

Summary: I have bought two of these... both as gifts. The first one was great and I had no problems, the second keyboard had a switch issue where the "T" key would double-register sometimes. Dealing with Razer to get the issue fixed was a headache and I won't be repurchasing from them because of this keyboard flaw as well as a mouse issue from them at the same time.
Summary: I have had this keyboard for about a month now and I really like the feel of the keyboard and I like the quality of the keyboard. I have used many different keyboards such as, Built-In Laptop Keyboards, and Logitech wireless keyboards. Pros: -This keyboard does not attract fingerprints because of the clean Matte build. -This keyboard has very good response on key press. -The back-lit keys look very nice, especially when you are gaming in the dark.
- The keyboard overall is pretty solid, tough and heavy

Summary: This is my first gaming keyboard, so I don't have a lot of benchmark. The Pros: - The keyboard overall is pretty solid, tough and heavy, so it doesn't move around your desk - The macro function is awesome, you can literally macro anything to ANY key! - Gaming mode is great - Keys a solid and they feel like they can last forever - Macro buttons can be very helpful, and goes well with my Razer Naga Epic The Cons: - Keys are somewhat smaller than other keyboards, so I find...

Summary: Purchased for my son, this keyboard is living up to its claims. The color (green) keys, the clarity and consistency of the keyboard lighting, and its functionality have made him quite happy. The keystroking sound is at precisely the level my son desires for gaming purposes, and allows him to keep track of his keystrokes. This is a new purchase for us, and as long as the product proves to be durable over time, we shall be quite satisfied.
Summary: I'd have given it five stars, but some of the arrow keys did not work. The mechanical switches for the keys are superb. They require just the right amount of pressure to make contact. The keyboard makes little noise while typing, just enough with the tactile feel of the keys to allow to let you know the key has been pressed. If you're a touch typist, the keyboard is just great.
Summary: I feel the cord is a bit long. I do have occasional lag with synapse, but that seems to be a software problem, as if affects both my Nagas as well.
Pros: I enjoy the row of 5 macro keys, as I find it strikes a good balance between having so many macros that they are not usable (Corsair K95) and having none at all. The clicks switches have a very satisfying sound to them, althougb I wish they were still MX blues. The keyboard is very sturdy and Razer's claims of faster double-taps and more accurate tactile bumps actually do make a difference in the games I play. The keyboard is comfortable to type on, and the clicking d...
Cons: I wish it came with a wrist rest at this kind of a price, as most contemporary keyboards do. The rubberized finish smudges very easily, and must be cleaned frequently.
