Quite frankly, it makes even my MacBook Pro's keyboard feel cheap
on 9 March 2011
There's not too much you can say about a keyboard... the resistance on these keys are non-existant. It feels like my reaction times on online FPS games have improved. Between this and a configured Logitech G9X, my online performance has gone from average, to great. Was bad equipment a limiting factor?
I also have slightly bent baby fingers, which is a bit of a weird condition. The actualtion force on the keys is dramatically less, meaning I can crouch (ctrl) using my baby fingers far more easily, Before, it was uncomfortable to do so.
The keyboard itself looks far more classy in real life. The macros are a good feature but I never use them. But yes, a mechanical keyboard is a bit like a SSD - once you use one, you'll not want to go back!
However, as these keyboards use "blue" Cherry MX switches, the keyboard is quite loud. Bit like typing on a typewriter. It'll be no concern to the user, but may be annoying to others, especially if you're typing in close proximity.
You'll see other gaming keyboards, cheaper and more expensive, but if they're not mechanical, don't bother! Would recommend this to anyone, gamer or not.
