I think it's a great keyboard. Feels sturdy and really smooth to type on. The customer service was great, had a question and had it answered within an hour. Also quick shipping, ordered Sunday got it Wednesday...and I live on Oahu.
It's my first mechanical keyboard so I kinda had to make a educated guess on which switch to go with (Black, Brown or red). Computer stores on Oahu don't that sell these type of keyboards. When I had to decide on which one to get I had to hope after reading a info online that it would be the one I liked. I ended up going with the brown keys and they feel great but I can't really compare to the others because they are the only type I've felt.
It's a big step up from my old Saitek keyboard that I've had for 7 years. They are expensive though, $140 for the custom one and $120 for a semi-custom. I hate to think I spent that much on a keyboard but if I keep it for as long as my old one I think it was money well spent.
Yeah that's always been one of my issues going to mechanical, despite the fact my KB (G510) costs 120$. Lol. Only thing is mine was a gift, wouldn't have bought it otherwise, and I do LOVE the KB. I use almost all my macro keys, and the lcd is very useful in regards to monitoring temps, as well as in teamspeak. Some people love it, some hate it. Frankly I dont care, I like it.
If I ever do go mechaincal I'm going to go deck for sure though. Amazing lights, amazing quality. Solid, SOLID keyboards.
