I don't think I can go to another keyboard after this...

Summary: All in all this is an amazing keyboard, I DEFINITELY recommend you buy it if you're looking for a good, quality Mechanical Keyboard. Worth every penny.
Pros: - Mechanical Keys - Nice bright green backlight - Beautiful font design - Durable construction (basically no flex whatsoever) - Braided cable and gold plated connectors
Cons: Problem ONLY with the PC version, The FXX keys all have the hideous white ink on them. Mac keyboard fixes this, which is the one I accidently bought. Whoops. - Somewhat difficult to clean, dust and dirt gets under the keys and isn't easy to remove.
Summary: Razer Synapse Driver still needs a lot of work to be coded properly and device and software needs to communicate each other in order to avoid technical issues. -Orange Switches doesn't sound and feel comfortable and I still prefer German-Engineered Cherry MX Brown Switches. -Razer synapse should not require account to login since there's no point to sync up with cloud to store settings.
Pros: -LED Backlight to see a lot easier when typing in dark room -5 Macro Keys to add keyboard functions, shortcuts, hotkeys, etc. -Fiber Braided Cable to enhance cable protection -Orange Switches are soft-tactile switch, but not clicky -45grams actuation force -10 Key Roll Over
Cons: -Keys feel mushy and hard when typing -Springs inside the make some weird high-pitch grinding clamp noises even when pressing the keys with less force -Razer Synapse 2.0 Driver is a joke. It takes too long to download and install the drivers. Sometimes, drivers won't recognize my input device, even though it is already connected properly. -It doesn't give stupendous tactile feedback and almost sounds like linear switches. -Razer Synapse Driver requires account to logi...
Summary: this was a 'could have been great" keyboard. i bought two of them and the second one has not been used yet. my logitech keyboards i owned for years never had these problems. i guess i will rma this bad keyboard and see how their technical support is. i will report back soonn.
Pros: looks great. i can see my keys in the dark.
Cons: first problem i noticed was that after a few hours of the keyboard being powered on that the 'escape' key stops working. second problem just developed which has caused me to write this bad review: about 90% of the time i hit the 'n' key it puts two 'nn' instead of just one.
Great performance, comfortable, custom gaming options

Summary: Always been a fan of Razer products and replaced my older Blackwidow with this one. Fantastic upgrade in lighted keys, quieter key clicks with better response than previous Blackwidow. Smooth transition since I had a profile in Synapse previously...just had to re-bind the macros to the keys I wanted.
Pros: Quiter keys than most mechanical keyboards Great key response and comfortable even without a keyboard wrist pad. Outstanding options with razer Synapse (especially with paired Razer mouse) for customizing any key, plus the 5 additional macro keys Even lighting across all keys - easy to see in dark, not blinding
Cons: If they changed the audio jacks into a USB plug in sound card, you wouldn't need to have the cords run to the front audio jacks on the pc case. So I don't use them.
Summary: If you're looking for the best, you found it. Would suggest any Razer product to anyone, even non-gamers. I've owned several Razer products in the passed, and still own them, they still work.. just wanted to update to the newer versions.
Pros: Everything about this key board is pro. The keys have just the right resistance, the clicking sound is louder then most keyboards, but quitier then every mechanical keyboard i've tried. The usb and audio jacks on the right side, are perfect for anyone who has a closed desk. The weight of the keyboard, keeps it in place, not moving around on your as you type. For gaming, this keyboard feels right, the 5 programmable buttons are perfect place to put any number of functi...
Cons: If they changed the audio jacks into a USB plug in sound card, you wouldn't need to have the cords run to the front audio jacks on the pc case.
Summary: If I had my money back from this keyboard, I would not buy this keyboard again. I would buy something cheaper and not as loud as this. Don't get me wrong, it's not THAT loud, but compared to all the keyboards I have used in the past, it is so much more louder. I did not have a mechanical keyboard. So... yeah Another thing I do not like about this keyboard is the left side macro keys. I'm very used to pressing CTRL at the edge there, but it's M5..
Pros: The build quality is wonderful. It's pretty heavy and it doesn't feel nor look cheap.. at all. The green light is very strong... It's not a bad keyboard....
Cons: The price... I think it is pretty costly for what it is. I'm used to my older Saitek keyboard that lasted 8+ years. I had buttons at the top right where I can change the volume up and down, mute, change backlit settings. With this keyboard, I have to press the FN key and then press another key. If I want to mute or change volume quickly. Like, if somehow I have my sound blasted full and open my browser and I had some... adult content videos or whatever on it. If I can...
Summary: looking for a mech. keybaord this one would be on my top 5 list. That should explain. Also clarifying i am NOT a fan boy, i didnt like the other keybaords razor made and there stuff tends to be look nice but lack performance. I wold honestly say this has reached a peak for razor keyboards, and i hope they continue to impress, cause who doesnt love good products?
Pros: I honestly cant even explain how much i really liked this keyboard. near perfect for me!
