Once users begin typing, the tactile sound click creates a positive response, making typing accurate and efficient. The tiny snap users feel through their fingertips and the click sound heard confirms each keystroke.

After 2+ years:
-The switches have a VERY minor "sticky" problem if they get dirt in them. That is what was causing my issues below with my spacebar and "t" key getting stuck. I have since removed all my keys and done a THOROUGH cleaning of the keyboard and all my keys are functioning A+ once again.

----------------------------------------
After 1.5 years:

PROBLEM #1 (MAJOR): My "t" key has started typing tt. I took it apart, cleaned, it and tthe problem has improved but it isn't perfect. (I'm purposely not erasing any double t's should they happen in tthis part of the review). ***A DEEP cleaning resolved this issue!***

PROBLEM #2 (Minor, kinda fixed): My spacebar key gottt stuck shortly after I purchased it, butt tthat was mostly the result of dirt getting underneatth. A quick cleaning every now and then fixes tthe the problem and it hasn't happened in a long time now (9+ months prob).

BOTTOM LINE:
-Hardcore NON-MMO gamers: GET IT.
-PC POWER USERS, WRITERS: GET IT.
-Everyone else (casual users, etc): Wait for it to drop to about $40. At $80 its just too expensive; but the cost is the ONLY reason I say hold off...if you can afford it GET IT.
The BEST keyboard I have used in my entire life; I spend 8-12 hours in front of the PC for the past 15 years (writing, gaming, pc power user).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BACKGROUND: I spend over 8 hours a day in front of my computer. Often times in the 10-12 hour range.

I just got this thing this morning, so here are my initial reactions:

First of all, the outer casing of the keyboard bulges up in the middle, which makes some of the keys feel as if they are set lower in the keyboard than they are. This is most noticeable to me above the arrow keys. It feels strange right now, but I'll probably get used to it.

The keyboard casing is really glossy on top, which I'm not a big fan of, but that's minor.

To get the multimedia functions pictured on the F1-F6 keys to work, you need to hold left shift, apparently (I figured this out through trial and error). I assume this means you can't register a real shift-F1 key press without using the right shift key. If that's true, that's really annoying.

This is the first time I've used mx-blue key switches, and so if you know you prefer blues, then that's great, you'll love it. I'd only used browns before, and I'm still getting used to the different feel/sound. Unlike the browns, the blues have a click at the moment of actuation that feels and sounds like the microswitches used in mouse buttons and modern arcade buttons. Of course, both travel past the point of actuation and eventually bottom out in a plastic-on-plastic click that varies with the amount of force you put on the keys.

The built-in USB hub works great with my mouse, although I don't plan on plugging anything else into it.

So overall, a pretty good keyboard, but not perfect.

I absolutely love these MX BLUE switches, they are a dream to type on and sound very loud and clicky which was exactly what I was looking for. I also love the glossy body because it matches my desk. The only turn off for me are the crooked keys. Mine might be a defect, but every key is at a slanted at a different angle and it affects my typing. There aren't any rubber feet so this keyboard slips around alot. And one curious thing is that the keyboard isn't very heavy. I think it's only 1.5 pounds on my scale.

Edit: I found out that the OEM that manufactures this keyboard is the same one that makes the extremely shoddy iOne Scorpious M1 and the infamously unreliable Razer products. Doh... I wish they got rid of the useless USB hub and mic/headphone jacks and put the money they saved from that into a better quality control section.

Edit:
After receiving my replacement for the one with the crooked keys, this one also has crooked keys!!!!! WHAT?!! After spending $12 for shipping to RMA the defective keyboard which was entirely the manufacturer's fault, I get another keyboard exactly like it with the same defects.

Here are the defects on my board: the ENTIRE board has crooked keys!! When you place a ruler against the bottom of the keys, the are not parallel to the ruler. Why can my $5 cheapo keyboard do something better than my mechanical keyboard over 14 times the cost? I also have a huge problem with the 0 key on the numpad. It sticks like crazy and is impossible to press. The left shift key is also very stiff and causes strain when you hold it down when gaming. This is going straight back to J&R soon.

This was my first mechanical keyboard, unfortunately it won't be my last. I love the feel and response of the keys, so much nicer than the "gaming" keyboards i have used in the past. Unfortunately the keys have started sticking. I'm not sure what the deal is, but the "shift", and num pad "enter" keys stick every time I press them. This is not a good feature. As others have pointed out, they seem to have a quality control issue. I'll probably just spend the money for a Das next time around.
