Compact keyboard of my choice

 

Well designed, compact qwerty form Satisfying cherry switches Bright key backlighting

Holding down the FN key turns on the FN lock, even when you're holding down the FN key while pressing F keys. This gets annoying when the FN key locks while you're trying to change the volume a couple of notches.

Almost Perfect! One annoyance

 

I've had this keyboard for nearly two years, and it's by far my favorite keyboard. I got the version with Cherry MX Brown switches and white LED and it's a nice balance of tactile response and quietness (if you don't bottom out the keys). There are...

- Satisfying click - integration of arrow keys and keypad is seamless delivering the best of both worlds without the added bulk of having them seperate - media key - build quality is top notch

- no option/menu key - placement of Fn key - no way to completely disable LEDs - arrow LEDs wear out much faster and noticeably dimmer

Excellent Keyboard

 

No problems 1 week in.

Good switches, feels great. Keys laid out well and function keys work perfectly. Strong but flexible USB cable

Bad solder joints

 

Would be fine if all the keys worked. Mine already has two dead. Time for a different brand. All these "CM Storms" are just Costar boards in a different box. CM is just one company that does this; there are many others, hopefully with better quality...

Cherry brown switches

Bad solder joints Dirty circuit boards that can possibly short out

Decent keyboard

 

Nice look and feel to the keyboard, bright backlight, switches are great, comes with a sturdy cord

I miss the "full keyboard" layout more than I thought I would. It's very awkward to try and use page up, page down, etc. when you're used to a standard keyboard

Perfect LAN Party Size!

 

If you look at a keyboard with numpad harrow with a short size this keyboard was the deal very more quality much more quality than if I had anticipated. All work weel, all key was easy acces. Great light well

Best deal Short keyboard vs fonctionality ; Numpad with harrow ; alloy back plate make the keybord stiff and feel really solide ; Awsome quality and low price ; Light really well at the low light it shine 2x better than a microsoft side winder x4 ;...

Its not really a cons but I would have liked more light effect ; its all i dont have any cons because itst all i whan in this key board

Great Keyboard Great Price

 

Exactly what I was looking for. If you're looking for a cheap mechanical keyboard that does everything a mechanical keyboard should do then this is exactly what you're looking for too. For the Cherry MX Brown, the backlit keyboard looks beautiful. Love...

Only one. One of the lights burnt out a couple months after using. But from what I've read, it's really only happened to me. Honestly not too noticable, just wish I could have gotten it replaced.
