Pros: This keyboard is very responsive and you can hit a key very fast repeatedly. It looks great especially with my case which has blue fan lights that match the back-lit keys
Cons: The M1-5 buttons on the left are annoying because you'll find yourself accidentally hitting them when you blindly reach for ctrl or shift. You probably get used to this over time and it's not a deal breaker for me but it's something to keep in mind. Would have been a 5 otherwise.
Summary: Learning the program for programming specific keys takes a while but once you figure it out its easy.
Pros: Programmable keys are great, especially being able to set specific ms times between key press/releases. Also being able to program a key to repeat the same function over and over again really helps. Playing online games with this is much better than basic keyboard.
Cons: Key size/spacing. If you are going from a basic keyboard to this the spacing is smaller, if you have big hands you might want to think about a full sized keyboard. I had to tape a couple pennies to my CTRL key just so I would know where it was with my hand while gaming (works great like that now).
Pros: Cool Design and sturdy build and keys that dont pop out or break.
Cons: Extra keys on left that make you lose place on keyboard and uncomfortable.Might be something you can get used too though. Also bigger than i expected. I thought i was buying the smaller roccat gaming keyboard without the numberpad.
Summary: ROCCAT has surprised me with their products so far. Between the mouse and keyboard I have purchased from them they seem to have an eye for what their customers want. Now only time will tell if these products have the durability to hold out for a while.
Pros: -Tons of macro keys. -Firm key press. -Thumb quick keys are a nice touch. -Multimedia keys work.
Cons: -Back-lit keys are at an odd angle. Its difficult to see them if your not right over top of them. -The wrist rest is not removable but I actually like it.
