Great keyboard, love the switches and how it doesn't look uber gamer-y.

Feels great, looks classy, great media controls, especially the volume roller. Wish it had a USB 3.0 hub on it lisk Das Keyboard. Isn't' too loud even without o-rings.

Wow. I want a mechanical keyboard now. I got the Cherry Mx one. The feedback is so nice. The backlit keyboard is cool and should help with editing since it is typically done in dim setting.

Just okay so far. Feels like a mechanical keyboard, but I haven't quite gotten fully comfortable on it yet. That may come in time, but right now it's middle of the pack - but at a value price.

I have not ever used a mechanical keyboard until I bought this and I have to say that it is a welcomed change. The cherry MX Red's are awesome to type on! My favorite feature is the ability to control my music via the panel on the top right no matter what program I have on-screen.

Really great keyboard overall. Some of the keys click a little making them sound more like a cherry mx clear or green... but I think some key dampeners might clear that up. All of the keys are pretty loud when they hit the base of the keyboard, but that probably depends on how hard you hit the keys when you type. Once again, key dampeners will probably clear that up. It also doesn't come with a wrist rest. For some, this might not be a problem, but I have kind of messed up wrists to begin with so I will need to buy a wrist rest.

I was very happy to find a Cherry MX red switch mechanical keyboard that was less than $100. Although lacks the bells and whistles of RGB, and extra gaming keys, this keyboard has the most desired features without breaking the bank. Only has white led backlights, can be controlled with software (however software has had stability issues on my machine) to have different patterns. Simple volume wheel, gaming button disables Windows key from being mispressed. And the cherry red switch has a wonderful resistance and press feel, with audiblly pressed keys.
