This keyboard has a bit of weight to it and feels GOOD in your hands. The back-lit keys make typing in the dark easy and comfortable when you need to look down to get a reference. Overall I LIKE the keyboard. It is comfortable and works flawlessly. The weight keeps it in my lap where I put it so I can lean back a bit, put my feet up and type.
What I don't like about it is the noise. It is clicky, and anyone else nearby will hear you typing away. The keys seem to take a bit of pushing. They are not hard to push, they are smooth, it is the distance. Perhaps it is because I am used to cheap keyboards where a very slight tap on a key is all that is required.
I have an old Dell keyboard, the flat style that I have been using forever because it is so easy to type fast and accurately with no pressure and no noise... however, it is too light, and wants to slide about as I type, and it is not back-lit requiring a strategically placed lamp so I can get a reference to where my fingers are once in a while, when typing in the dark. While the old keyboard may be slightly easier and faster to type on, its drawbacks more or less match those from The Thermaltake Tenkey-less keyboard. The Thermaltake is handier, heavier, and backlit.
Understand that my four star rating was judged solely on the ability to use this keyboard to WRITE with. I am not gaming or anything else with it. I am also missing part of a little finger, so usually pop out a couple keys to avoid hitting multiple keys when I use it. Now, having said all of that. I admit I like it. If I could get this exact keyboard with a lighter and shorter keystroke, I would be completely in heaven. I do recommend this keyboard. It's advantages match or outweigh the disadvantages of the old cheap keyboard I was using, and I DO expect this keyboard to last much longer than the old cheap one did. The more I type with it, the more I get used to it, and the more I like it.
The software has been updated at least twice (we're up to 2.0 now!) since I bought it and each update makes the lighting controls better. Don't let dated complaints about the drivers hold you back.
The blue switches are pretty good, imo; nice and clicky, pretty much what I wanted from blue switches. They're not a great gaming switch, which I hear applies to all blue switches due to their design. Once depressed, the key needs to come all the way back up for it to register the next press. I can type at over 130 words per minute and I have yet to notice a lost letter then; blues are great for typing but I do notice occasionally losing key presses while playing games, which require multiple quick key taps. It doesn't happen all the time but it does happen.
Good lighting, great for typing, OK for games. Website states "100% ANTI-GHOSTING WITH 104 KEY ROLLOVER ON USB," which is essential for lefties. Pressing a button to disable the Windows key is fantastic. I do miss dedicated media buttons and volume control, though the FN keys handle that responsibility adequately.
I've stuck with it longer than I expected to - recommended!
If you're new to mechanical keyboards, the information and descriptions can be confusing. Especially for switches. You'll see brown switches listed as "non-clicky," but they DO MAKE SOME NOISE. Brown switches have a nice medium-tension feel and make a very satisfying "thck-thck-thck" when you type, which can turn into a full-grown "clack" when you bottom out (press the key all the way down). If you're looking for a silent keyboard that others won't hear, this is not it, even in the brown switch. I love the sound of the browns, and they do not make an obnoxious racket, but just understand that "non-clicky" does not equal "no sound." The sound from "non-clicky" keys mostly comes from rebound (when the key is released and comes back up) and from bottoming out. Damper rings can eliminate bottom-out noise, and are worth a few bucks if you plan to type a lot.
The clicky blues: Blue switches are listed as "clicky." These make the same rebound and bottom-out sound you get from all mechanical boards, that basically comes from the metal plate inside; but the switch itself makes a sweet little higher-pitched click along with it. The blue switches also have a lighter feel, easier to press than browns. For me these actually felt a little looser than I expected, but it's still a very nice feel and I happen to like that fun clicky sound. Damper rings on blues will eliminate the bottom-out noise, and dampen some of the rebound noise--but you'll still get that satisfying little click with every keystroke. This board has the same nice backlight, same bum deal on being able to see the secondary characters. But again, if you're enough of a typist that you're investing in even a lower-priced mechanical keyboard, you probably know from muscle memory where your characters live.
All in all these are very nice keyboards at this price point. I switch back and forth between the blues and browns, depending on my mood. Sometimes I really love that clicky sound of the blues, and other days I like the quieter, firmer feel of the browns. If you type hard, you might want the browns since they require a little more force to bottom out. If you have a super-light touch, either will be fine, but only the blues will give you that sweet little tick-tick-tick with each key press. Adding damper rings makes these close to perfect, as it cuts down in the rebound and bottom-out noise, and give you just the pure sound and feel of the switch itself. They're cheap here on Amazon and easy to install for the average user. I will say that I'm not a gamer; I don't program any special keys or do any kind of acrobatics with my keyboard. For me these are workhorse typing keyboards, and so far I have been very pleased with both the brown and blue switch versions in this brand. This is a good place to start if you want to try your hand at mechanical boards without investing $150-200+ on a board with Cherry MX switches.
