Looks good but comparing to my old g80-3000, it is just so so on usage

  • Summary: I am not used to black switch, I prefer to my old g80-3000, whose switch is blue. Black switches have no feeling like a mechanical keyboard. And the keys are a little smaller than I supposed to, so sometimes I hit wrong key during my gamming.

Good and bad.

  • Summary: Kind of weird how the keyboard breaks after only a small fall when I had a older keyboard that fell around 20-30 times before this and still works perfectly fine as 6 years old and only was $90.
  • Pros: - Durable - Easy to clean - Multiple key processing - Audio ports help along with USB ports - Would recommend to a friend perhaps...
  • Cons: - After nearly a year of us, three days before the warranty I finally made the slip up like everyone does and dropped the keyboard, it fell about 2 feet and now the Numpad 4 key makes a rather loud noise and Numpad 3 key just stopped working. - Sending in for a RMA

  • Pros: Hand rest is perfect
  • Cons: LED's on keyboard are blindingly bright Switches starting dying a YEAR on the dot. Oh well so much for a replacement. Paint rubs off keys very easily. If i wanted unmarked keys I would have just bought a DAS

There are better options for less money

  • Summary: I compared this one with Logitech g710+ and found it less exciting in comparison. Firstly, the keys are louder and less springy (more old-school) because it lacks silencers that Logitech has out of the box.

Feels good, doesn't work though.

  • Summary: 3 stars because the one I received is broken. I've contacted SS support so hopefully the issue will be resolved. I'm irritated but really like the feel of the keyboard, so hopefully I'll get a working one sooner than later.
  • Pros: Feels great, solid heavy-weight construction, windows key is replaced by another modifier key, usb audio and mic ports
  • Cons: Keyboard arrived with almost all keys not functioning properly or at all. Funny enough, WASD worked though. Wrist support is flimsy hollow plastic - I was expecting something as solid as the keyboard itself.. Caps lock, scroll lock and num lock LEDs are bright as hell No backlit keys (if you care...

The palm rest moves; annoying

Anonymous, Newegg
13 July 2012
  • Summary: I don't know. I kinda dissapointed. The palm rest kinda moves when you lift your left hand up and its not actually all that bad but I wanted something 100% that did not move. I was thinking about the Corsair K90 because that one has thumbscrews to keep it from moving so now I'm dissapointed I didn't...
  • Pros: I bought this only for ergonomic + gaming because my meka G1 thermaltake was not comfortable. and my bigges pet peeve was the flimsy palm rest so I bought this. somewhat dissapointed
  • Cons: It's really made high quality, though plain. However, my biggest selling point was the big palm rest it comes with that looked sturdy and comfortable but it kind moves around and actually doesn't feel all that sturdy. if you put your hand on one corner of the keyboard with the palm rest, it kinda...

  • Summary: I'm not impressed with this keyboard even considering the sale price. The thing that's taken the most adjusting are the slight differences in keyboard layout. I've found that I used the left windows key almost constantly, and after two months I still haven't adjusted to not having one.
  • Pros: Springy keys,, Sounds great when typing,, Long cable,, Solid keyboard construction,, Great wristrest,, Two USB ports on the keyboard
  • Cons: Single space backspace key, no left hand Windows key, White letters discolour quickly, and are almost impossible to clean., USB ports are v1.1, LEDs are white and too bright.

  • Summary: I have been debating about getting a mechanical keyboard for three years or so, and this is the one I decided to start with. Overall, it has some nice features, but it's not as functional as I expected, for gaming or for typing in general.
  • Pros: -onboard USB/mic/phone sockets, -connects with a single long, braided cable, -solid
  • Cons: -USB hub is v1.1 only, -difficult to see at night

Quality unit, but it's not for me

  • Summary: This keyboard comes equipped with linear (black) cherry mechanical switches; these type of switches are neither springy nor spongy, and provide no tactile feedback. I highly recommend that you demo this keyboard to see if the key feel and travel is right for you.
  • Pros: Anti-ghosting keys, extremely solid construction. Nice, clean look.
  • Cons: Will slide around on surfaces unless you use the included wrist guard, which isn't nearly as solid as the keyboard itself. The LEDs are annoyingly bright.
