Summary: I had three of these (one regular, two ultimate) and I binned all three after roughly a month of use. (I live in south america, shipping cost for warranty exceeds the unit price, they were not bought from Ebay.) All three keyboards exhibited the common "double tapping" problem on two completely different PCs, making them unusable.
Summary: I can not remember ever getting ripped off so bad. The "g" key alternates between not registering at all and registering 2 to 4 times. Hitting the spacebar can get you anywhere from 1 to 3 spaces. There are at least 2 other keys that do not always work right as well. This is the worst keyboard ever built and it is expensive. Despite the fact that the mouse I bought from the same company seems to be working great, I will never buy from this company again.
Summary: I highly recommend against purchasing this keyboard. I purchased it and used it for a week or so before returning it. First of all, the driver software *requires* you to sign up for an account with Razer's cloud service just to use the features of the keyboard. There is no other driver that does not require constant Internet access. Incredibly lame. I e-mailed them about my disappointment and they responded that their cloud requirement is an "amazing feat".
Summary: Sadly I've joined the ranks of people to have a defective keyboard... Straight out of box and the 'L' key does not work. All of the other keys work fine. Pros: The keyboard feels pretty good to type on The idea of the macros is cool (although I have not used them yet) Cons: the 'L' key does not work properly Guess I'll move on to the das...
Summary: At first I loved this keyboard, the mechanical switches felt amazing, and overall it was a solid board. One reason I chose to purchase this keyboard was due to how much longer mechanical switches last compared to regular keyboard buttons. Unfortunately Razer does not build keyboards well. Five days after the year warranty expired the keyboard suddenly just stopped working. It would not turn on (I tested multiple computers), no response at all.
Summary: Warning! There seems to be a real problem with Razer's Quality Control and Razer does not care. We ordered 2, within a week the "S" key stopped responding on one keyboard, Amazon replaced it in their usual excellent way. Then almost immediately the replacement started experiencing the exact same problem. At the same time the second keyboard in the original order developed a problem; the "S" key started sticking in the depressed position.
Summary: Had it since 4 weeks, i've unplugged it couple of times to to make the wire is out of my way(wire width is huge) and had no problems, and decided had i've unplugged it a mistake, then all sudden it stopped working.. had a nose on internet installed drivers, installed old drivers even holded the FN light up button still no Luck! Don't get why theres drivers when it dose not help!

Excerpt: Solid develop quality & worth. Price is inexpensive for a strong entry level mechanical keyboard. Wonderful if you're not a hardcore gamer. Not full N-Important rollover!!!

It will ignore the command mainly because these key combinations do not perform.Fron Jinro the GSL SC2 professional player, one particular of posted on teamliquid forums: Is it just me or does any person else...
