It is HEAVY HEAVY HEAVY. At least, compared to the other gel keyboards you'll get. There's quite a bit of heft to it, which is nice- it makes the not slip grip pads under it more effective. Did I mention the non-slip? It's awesome, now my keyboard doesn't move around when I vigorously type hateful messages to n00b teammates (I don't actually do that) or excitedly write Amazon reviews (I do that).
Reds are supposed to be quieter and smoother, and smooth it is, but quiet it is not. Such is the way of things when it comes to mechanical. That's okay though, if you live alone or have an office where people are okay with CLICK CLACK CLICK CLACK then get this attractive lady, she'll announce herself to the world, that's for sure.
The keys are somewhat sensitive, so a half click counts! The number of rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I have typed is pretty high up there, but I'm getting better. Definitely something you need to get used to!
Also, the action on the keyboard is smooth, so you can actually click it down halfway. I noticed with my old poop-dell one, that it will give a tiny resistance and just go down all the way. This one will go half way, so application of pressure at all generally here will = a click whereas before an application of ENOUGH pressure would be a click.
That's okay once you get used to it, and personally I love it. My WPM has increased. Or not. I don't know, I haven't tested it. But I'm guessing.
-Sturdy Heavy Keyboard
-Extremely comfortable and simple design
-Love the clicky noise of bottoming out every press
-No key removal tool?
Take for example for people debating on switching over to mechanical, i am a starcraft 2, wow and league of legends player. My SC2 i went from 80 APM to 140 APM, without changing anything, also at 80 APM i was trying my heart out to get that. (Yes i have a winning record =P) Much less effort to get that 140 APM w/ the new keyboard. All gamers i recommend you switch... NOW.
