Summary: It was either this or a Steelseries, I chose this because it has a completely standard ASCII layout; no giant enter key, and the shift keys are normal. The headphone pass through introduces no noise whatsoever, even with my very low impedance headphones, so if you hear noise it's coming from the computer. It's Mac compatible with no driver. On a Mac, the Windows key becomes Cmd. Scroll Lock and Pause Break become the brightness control.
Pros: -Looks like sex., -Very solid., -All matte, nothing glossy so fingerprints don't show., -Good for typing and awesome for gaming., -Quiet enough that I can't hear the clicking with headphones on., -Keycap lettering is durable., -No left windows key, better for gaming that way., -Pass throughs work just fine., -Doesn't look like a banana
Cons: -No backlit keys. I prefer it this way but it's a con for some., -No gaming keycaps and no keycap remover. Seems lazy but whatever.
Summary: So, after having a standard cheap keyboard for the last 10 years I decided to treat myself after having a major computer upgrade. I’ve always thought a gaming mouse was a MUST if you played games but I never realised the advantages to a mechanical keyboard. Firstly I spent a good amount of time researching into MX Switches.
Summary: As a touch-typist I find this to be an excellent keyboard. It has a lovely feel and a perfect balance between resistance and response to touch. I know it's designed for games also but I don't need that functionality. This keyboard oozes quality - the build is solid and the main cable is one of the best I've seen on a keyboard.
Summary: Just arrived today and I've been typing away on it for an hour or so and I can report this is incredibly comfortable to type on, the keys can be described as nothing other than brilliant, every press is spongy and bouncy. The body of the keyboard is built like a tank and is mega heavy for a keyboard, however this is a good thing as the last thing you want is the keyboard moving around.
Summary: I purchased this keyboard not that long ago, I was reading up on mechanical keyboards and decided on this one. This keyboard uses cherry black switches, if you aren;t sure on what that means, then I suggest you read up on that and the other switch types. as there are a few. But anyway, this keyboard uses the cherry black type, this is the first mechanical keyboard I bought, so I don't know what the other switch types feel or sound like, yes there are some google vids...
Summary: It's the keyboard Whitera uses, that was pretty much enough for me to buy it I'm glad that I did, it's so nice to type on and has the great mechanical keyboard sound to each keystroke too. It can also take a bit of a beating, I must admit that I have had some gamer rage while using it and its taken a coup[le of punches with no damage whatsoever.
Summary: I had a few concerns going from the more typical rubber dome keyboards to a mechanical one. However, it's turned out to be one of the best decisions I've ever made. I'll start by saying that the Cherry MX black switches feel amazing. Already I've learned not to bottom out the keys and really feel the difference in speed when typing and gaming. The amount of force required is just perfect for somebody like me with clumsy, stubby little fingers. I rarely make mistakes now.
Summary: Amazing keyboard A pleasure to type and play on it. It's pretty much silent, thanks to the cherry black switches. The feedback on the keys makes hitting the right ones easier and alleviates mistakes or leaving you wondering if you actually pressed the key or not. Very Solid Build. Pros: Cherry black mechanical switches 1000MHz polling rate Onboard USB hub and audio jacks Powered hub with separate connection for flash drives Gold plated connectors Detachable palm rest...
