Fantastic board!

This is a fantastic keyboard! I recently bought this as I had never owned a mechanical keyboard before and decided to go for a change. I'm very happy to say that I'm getting on great with it. The Cherry MX blue switches can be quite loud but, personally, I enjoy the sound they make so it's all good. This keyboard is great for gaming and typing so it's an all round winner in my opinion.


Excellent mechanical keyboard

This is an excellent mechanical keyboard and as previous reviewers have noted once you go mechanical you never go back.

The only thing i find that could be an issue for some is that this is indeed quite a noisy keyboard if you're sharing a room with someone and enjoy late nigh gaming.

As for Adam's review have you considered soldering in replacement LED's? Now i know this is not something an average person would do but i find needing to replace LED's a pretty minor defect as long as the everything else works perfectly.


Nice keyboard with some bling

Firstly the good bits. This keyboard is well built. The Cherry keys are a joy to type on and give a nice click on each stroke. The LED backlights look very nice in the day and at night add an eerie glow to gaming.

Now the bad.

After two years of constant use the LEDs are now beginning to fail. The Ctrl key, number 7 key on the keypad and the Fn keys (the key used to dim the leds) are now all dark. Not good really considering the only reason to spend

This is my first mechanical keyboard, and I can truly say that I will never go back to a membrane keyboard again.

I absolutely love the cherry MX blue switches. At first I was worried they would be too loud, yes they are loud but not excessively. Also the tactical feedback is like no other. The blue LED backlight goes up to a very bright setting which is nice.

If you like responsive clicky keys with lots of feedback at your fingertips, there is only one thing to say...

Get this keyboard now! You will love it.

Best keyboard I've ever used. Looks great, feels great, sounds great.

As the other chap says, its pretty loud so dont get it if you share a room and want to play late at night :)

Clicky Business

+great tactility from the Cherry MX Blue keyswitches

+Usefull backlight ajustment features (just hope you like blue)

+Fully spaced numpad makes keybinding and data entry easy

+Very comfortable wrist rest

- keystrokes are loud, care should be taken if you plan on using this keyboard late at night.

-Cherry blues are great for fps but can be fatiguing if you plan on typing for long periods of time or playing mmos

-Rubbery coating on palm rest will need wiping regularly as it is a dust magnet and can make your wrist quite sweaty

This product is priced appropriately for the quality, the build is solid with no creaking or flex.

Once you go mechanical you will never go back.

Type or Bust

If your going to build the best gaming rig out there then the last thing you want to do is to save your pennies on the keyboard considering thats how you use the machine that you just saved for 3 years to build! However does it really have to cost around 100 quid....

Good feel to it
Nice back lights
Ps2 connector
looks good if your in a tron frame of mind

Bad volume controls (compared to say G19)


Worth it if you can spare the money and it is a quality build but does it make me a better gamer than the guy with a 20 pound keyboard.... i wish!
