2 out of 5 eggs2 failed keyboards in 4 yrs

Pros: Looks great, love the "mechanical sound"

Cons: Have had 2 fail. Razer customer support is slow and not helpful

Other Thoughts: One the backlit key went out, still functional, but looked terrible. The other, I had one particular key, that when you pressed it, it would add 2-3 extra of that letter. I pressed the "o" key 10 times and got 16 of them on the screen. These aren't huge deals, but for the money it should last more than a year.

2 out of 5 eggsQuestionable Build Quality and QA

Pros: Feels Sturdy
Looks good
Braided Cables Are Nice
Love the Noise/Feel of Keys

Cons: Holds fingerprints/grease easily
Attracts/Holds Dust on Side of keys Easily
Left SHIFT key Non-Responsive on Day 32
Right Leg Snapped While Using Number Pad
Green a Bit Too Bright (Should have Gotten Blue)

Other Thoughts: Overall, I like the keyboard, however I am extremely disappointed that the Shift key stopped working after barely 30 days. I'm going to try support, but from feedback here and other places, I'm better off holding my breath. It's a joke when my $10 keyboard from 12yrs ago works great, but I can't get decent support for the 45 day old $100 keyboard!

2 out of 5 eggsHorrible Customer Service, okay quality

Pros: Mechanical
When it works, it works well
New switches are alright, although i'd prefer something that is proprietary.

Cons: After 2 months, my D key stared becoming un-responsive or double tapping
When i received the keyboard, the / ? key didn't work until i slammed on it really hard.
The keyboard material holds onto grease really well (even if your hands are clean)
Customer support is garbage

Other Thoughts: I can't believe i spent any amount of money on this trash. As stated in the cons above, my D key became unresponsive, or when it did respond, it would press 2 or 3 times. It was seriously irritating especially when playing CS:GO. It took me nearly 2 weeks (11 days to be exact) to finally get through their bullcrap customer service. It was always at least 2 days between replies from them. Then the guy i was talking to from customer service didn't give me the shipping label he was supposed to, so it was another 2 days for that. I finally got my keyboard after 1 month and 1 week (that's counting the 11 days of "customer service"), and it cost me $31.12. Seriously.... Now, when i open it, it didn't even come in the retail box (which i sent mine back to them in). All that it was packed in was packing paper and bubble wrap. But they keyboard was there, so yay. I get really excited and get ready to plug it in, when i notice hair under one of the keys. I popped the key off carefully, and noticed there was all sorts of dirt and hair under there. Then i looked up towards the Esc key, and there was a mark from something spilled on it... I tested it out writing up this review, and i've noticed that my E, R, and T keys are all sticking sometimes as i type (they don't repeatedly press, they just take an extra half a second to come back up) which now has really ticked me off.

TL;DR, customer support sucks, they new switches suck (random keys will stop working or barely work) and if you go through the pain of doing an "exchange", you'll get a refurb. Don't get this keyboard, the new 2014 series sucks, and so does everything else about them. Go with a Logitech. When this one fails me, that's what i'm headed for. Their customer support is phenomenal.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat Murder Weapon

Pros: Sturdy and heavy! Rugged combat construction would not make it out of place in a miltiary field environment (with the backlighting made red or turned off).

Cons: Keys are actually very small and close together. Having big hands, I was constantly correcting my typing - fat-fingering the caps lock every time I tried to turn left. Keys are very heavy to click making you extremely slow when gaming. This heavy clicking also makes it loud enough your TS friends know exactly how you're doing, as well as you real life neighbors.

Other Thoughts: The Deathstalker, at half the price, is a superior piece of machinery for gaming - especially for us big and tall folk that have families that like to sleep at night.

5 out of 5 eggsMany fancy, such computer

Pros: Sturdy design
Good weight
Great Software Support
Nice FN features

SUPER RESILIENT - I sometimes like to program with a big cup of coffee at my side, and I spilled about 250mL of coffee on the keyboard, unplugged it turned it upside down let it dry and back to work...

Cons: Very loud (not really a flaw, what do you expect from a mechanical keyboard?)

Other Thoughts: I would prefer if it was a little bit less noisy, but the key strokes are very smooth and comfortable compared to other keyboards I have. This one is definitely easier to type on for long hours. Buy it now! What are you waiting for?

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very good keyboard, although the switch is made to OEM kailh, but using them feel good.

Cons: Switch quality control is not very good, I bought the first keyboard had to suffer double-click on the V key. Although I have to replace a new keyboard, but I'm afraid the same thing happened again.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective x2

Pros: -Good looking keyboard
-Nice sound when typing

Cons: -Keys constantly double typing even after replacement

Other Thoughts: Newegg did a good job for RMA, the process was fast and easy. But both the keyboard i received were double tapping, which gets really frustrating while both gaming and typing. I STRONGLY not recommend this keyboard. Razer is supposed to be a RELIABLE gaming company and they cannot sell defective keyboards like that, it's really unacceptable. I'm going to buy Corsair.

1 out of 5 eggsDuplicate Keystrokes/Chattering

Pros: -Keys are tactile and feel good to type on.
-Backlight adjustable from "Off" to "Several Large Suns" in brightness

Cons: - about 50% of the letter keys were chattering (double typing characters) out of the box.

Other Thoughts: For a keyboard that ran me $130, you would expect that it would work correctly out of the box. I noticed as soon as I plugged it in that I was getting duplicate keypresses or "Chattering" on more than half of the keys. All of the fixes I found online indicated that this problem is normal for dirty or poorly maintained mechanical keyboards, and that I should replace the switches or attempt to pull them apart and clean them, or that I should simply mash the keys for a few hundred keypresses to sort it out. However, a brand new in box keyboard shouldn't be coming in so dirty that half of the keys don't function properly, or that hours of maintenance are required out of the box. Simple QC would have caught this problem. Many others seem to be experiencing the same problem, so I am simply returning mine for a different keyboard, rather than go through the hassle of receiving a replacement that may or may not work. As a long time fan of Razer mice, I am disappointed that their keyboards don't provide the same quality.
