2 out of 5 eggsGood keyboard, garbage keycaps

Pros: In terms of comfort and the response to key presses, this IS one of the more comfortable keyboards I've used in the many years I've been using computer keyboards. The adjustable lighting is nice, and game mode that disables the Windows key is a nice, useful feature as well.

Cons: As comfortable as it is, these keyboards are absolute garbage when it comes to quality. I have purchased THREE of these, and all three have had problems within a few months. I initially ordered two, one for myself and one for the female spousal unit. Out of the box, her keyboard's F through apostrophe row of keys would not light up (she didn't want the lit keys anyway, so we didn't bother returning it). Reading the other reviews, I see that this is not a unique occurrence. Mine worked fine.

About three months after purchase, my first key broke off. The plastic connector on the bottom of the key splintered and part of it snapped off, making the key wobbly, and unable to stay connected to the keyboard. A couple months later, another key did the same thing (right CTRL first, then 'J' - former was heavily used, the latter was not). I ignored the CTRL key and let it sit there wobbly, and just stopped using it regularly. When J broke, I demoted it to the spare keyboard for the closet and household servers.

Since the female unit's keyboard was fine with regard to keys, I figured maybe I had an old/bad one. Because I really DO like typing with it, and find it comfortable, I decided to give it another chance, and ordered the third. Some months later, I have now come back to write this review because keyboard #3 because just got its first broken key.

Other Thoughts: I'm not really hard on keyboards, and have actually become less hard on keyboards over the years (less 'enthusiastic' gaming). No dropping, shaking, hitting, nor anything that I would expect to damage a non-gaming keyboard, let alone one meant for gaming. I have NEVER had a keyboard (expensive gaming or a cheap OEM) break keys like this (nor have a backlit keyboard come broken out of the box).

If you want to buy replacement keycaps, or have Cherry MX keycaps just laying around, you'll probably enjoy using this keyboard. If you want a keyboard with keys that aren't cheap pieces of garbage, look somewhere else. Logitech QA and quality when it comes to this keyboard is seriously lacking.

3 out of 5 eggsOK but cheaply made

Pros: Lighted keys
Variable lighting
Decent ergonomics
Cherry MX brown switches

Cons: Keys are cheap and break easily (see other thoughts)
Flimsy wrist support
Volume control wheel sometimes doesn't work

Other Thoughts: I really wanted to love this board, but the overall cheap quality of it kept me from doing so. The keys are such poor quality they keep breaking and coming off while I'm trying to type or play games. I already lost the ESC key after it broke a couple months after I got it. Since then, some of the other keys come off at random. I've owned many mice and keyboards from Logitech and they were all bulletproof. Then I bought this one and it's the first time I've been disappointed by a product from them. Just be aware of this should you choose this board.

4 out of 5 eggsThis Keyboard is awesome!!!!

Pros: 1. Typing feels really good on this keyboard.

2. The on the fly macro actually records delays unlike most other on the fly recording macro devices.

3. The customization of this keyboard is better than anything I've ever seen.

Cons: The only major con I have against this keyboard is the software. As of now, it seems kind of buggy. First, the software for the keyboard is installed when you get the updated drivers. You won't even realize you have the basic customization software unless you actually check your program files and look for ROCCAT. The basic software gets installed with the driver. Additionally, it seems buggy right now. Once you close the software, you can no longer open it unless you reboot. Also, I'm having issues trying to get some of the macro stuff to work properly. The macro will run a full loop, but that seems to be all that the software can handle right now. I ask it to run multiple loops, but it always only runs 1.

Other Thoughts: I got this keyboard due to a few reasons. First, I have been wanting a mechanical keyboard for a while now. My previous two keyboards where a Logitech G-19 and Razor DeathStalker Ultimate. This keyboard is waaaaay better than both of them. Its better in terms of customization and feel. To me, both the Razor DeathStalker and Logitech G19 are more about gimmicks than actually a keyboard. Their LCD's are nice, but the companies aren't really coming out with any software to support those products. Roccat on the other hand is allowing their software to be developed via open source, which means anyone can try to develop anything they want.

Anyways, google Roccat Power Grid if you're wondering more about some of the customization.

2 out of 5 eggsNice Feel, Unforgivably Cheap Keycaps

Pros: MX Cherry brown switches provide good feedback and responsiveness.
Decent customization options for lighting and macro keys.

Cons: Multiple keycaps started breaking after about 6 months of use. I don't type with an abnormal amount of force, and this is the first keyboard I've owned in 25+ years of PC use where the keys have actually broke from normal use. This seems to be a somewhat common problem with this keyboard, and Logitech wanted me to send the whole thing in for warranty support instead of just sending two replacement key caps, so I didn't bother.

Other Thoughts: Absolutely not worth the money for a keyboard failing in it's most basic function. Unless Logitech has expressly stated that the build quality of the keycaps has been revised, DO NOT BUY.

1 out of 5 eggsKeycaps break

Pros: It lights up for the kids

Cons: The keycaps broke within a year. My CTRL, ESC, and S keys broke. WASD keyboards does not sell compatible keys for the bottom row. The bottom row are proprietary sizes. Never buy a piece of hardware that uses proprietary... anything really.

Other Thoughts: I think Logitech needs to send me some free keys and stop having me contact their customer service people who don't know how to address the issue. They told me that I have to send the ENTIRE keyboard in and pay for shipping. This thing is heavy and would probably cost $20 to ship via UPS. They will not send replacement keys. Logitech is turning into a company that I will not do business with in the future. Everything is B grade plastic junk. I guarantee if this happened with Ducky or Das Keyboard, they would have a better solution than the send the entire keyboard in. And the most frustrating thing is that they won't even work with me on it. I told them that I would be willing to pay them to give me replacement keys.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty great.

Pros: This keyboard is great, no doubt. Many cool features. It's pretty durable and (in my opinion) has an overall build quality of 8 out of 10.

Cons: Easy to get fingerprints on (that's just pickiness). Sometimes the volume wheel gets stuck, but then moves without a problem. I've had this keyboard for about 10 months, nothing wrong, but recently I've noticed that the LED's on my SHIFT, CTRL, WINDOWS KEY, ALT, and SPACEBAR would flicker. I would simply press one of the keys and they would light back up, but now they are completely dead. I believe it's not the LED's but the circuitry to those specific keys that caused them to black out.

Other Thoughts: Overall this keyboard is on the money. The software designed for it is alright. Kind of buggy, could be better. Maybe I just lucked out on this keyboard, but it won't stop me from buying Logitech's products. I recommend this keyboard.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

Pros: - Mechanical
- Backlit
- Customizeable keys
- Not as clicky/loud as the Razr mechanicals (could be a con if you like the clicky sound)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't know what people are talking about when they say the keys are "fragile". I've had mine for almost 2 years now and no keys have been destroyed, and I play a lot of games like CS:GO and LoL where frustration sometimes gets the better of me.

I've even taken all the keys off to clean out the underside. Keys came out nice and easy without a special tool (just used my fingernail).

If you are wondering about this product, and the reviews talking about "fragile key caps" are getting you worried, don't be. The keycaps are just fine and will not break. You've got to be really careless with your keys to have them break.

I would imagine spending $150 on a keyboard, you would take much better care of it, baby it almost. But I've never had a problem with it and I love it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Keyboard

Pros: Great Mechanical feel and still pretty quite compared to other keyboards ive used. This is due to the rubber o rings under the keys. Quick macro creation is easy and the software works great. I have found no compatibility issues so far. I use a Roccat Kova+ mouse and there are no issues with compatibility. The back light is very good and bright. The media keys are an amazing feature.

Cons: I think the orange strip around the G keys would have been batter in another color. It looks good but maybe color choice there would have been awesome.

Other Thoughts: Very good keyboard i would recommend to anybody. Great product at a pretty decent price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mechanical Keyboard!

Pros: Mechanical! The keys feel great and I'm now on the hype train for owning mechanical keyboards. The feedback from the keys outstanding. I've researched the difference between all the different Cherry MX switches and the browns seemed like the best trade off for what I was looking for. I feel right at home. Took maybe a day of getting used to the feel after being on a Logitech G11 keyboard for the past 6-7 years.

The LEDs look great and have adjustable brightness. The brightest setting is REALLY bright. Too bright, haha. I dialed them down a couple notches and they are not a distraction at all. I don't notice any "yellow" color to them as mentioned in other reviews. They are white all the way across. Perhaps this issue is hit and miss or has been fixed?

Dual USB hookup is not an issue. Just plug your mouse into the back of the keyboard as intended. You won't be taking up any more USB slots than you were before.

Cons: Nothing yet!

Other Thoughts: Definitely has a slightly smaller scale from my previous keyboard. This works well for me because I do not have big hands. I can see where this may be an issue for those with larger than average hands/fingers.

2 out of 5 eggsKeys have SERIOUS durability issues. Look at other brands instead.

Pros: This keyboard looks good on paper; it has MX brown keys all throughout the board, 6 macro keys, a variable level whtie backlight, media keys, volume wheel, etc. It also has a wrist wrest (not the most solid, but it works and is somewhat short), a usb passthrough port, and the software works pretty well with the keyboard (doesn't work as well with some of their mouses though).

Cons: There is a serious issue with the durability of the keycaps on this keyboard. After 6 months, I have had at least 5 keycaps break, all in the same area. The "sockets" on the bottoms of the keys seem to either crack or split, which makes the keys very loose; so loose that they often fly right off when typing. This seems to happen to keys that are often not pressed directly normal to their surface, like the F5 key, left control key, and other keys around the edges of the keyboard.

So far, I have had the following keys break in this fashion: numpad minus, F5, 2 (non numpad), left control, left arrow key, and possibly more that I haven't noticed yet. When the keys break they often get noticeably looser, sometimes coming off in the middle of use (which is annoying when you are doing something like gaming, which is what this keyboard was allegedly designed for).

Furthermore, Logitech DOES NOT SELL REPLACEMENT KEYS. You can try and find compatible Cherry keys, but I have been unable to find the kind of etched backlit compatible keys that this keyboard uses anywhere (and most keycap sets cost over $40). The other option is to ship your entire keyboard back to Logitech and get a new board sent out. Since the whole point of a mechanical keyboard is durability, this is beyond ridiculous. Replacing the entire keyboard every 6 months because keycaps break is absurd and shouldn't be something you have to do on a $130-$150 keyboard. And once the warranty is up, you are completely out of luck and have to source the keys on your own.

This is not an isolated issue. An internet search of this issue will yield dozens of threads on the Logitech (and other) forums, with zero response by Logitech themselves admitting the issue or claiming to fix it in any fashion.

Other Thoughts: If you are considering buying a mechanical keyboard for their increased durability, look elsewhere. It seems Logitech wanted bigger profit margins and cut costs with materials on this product, resulting in keycap socket walls that are too thin for any serious keyboard use. I would strongly advise you look at other brands, none of which seem to have these issues. From looking around on the internet, Logitech seems to be the only brand that has these issues with their Cherry keycaps.

My previous keyboard was a first generation G15, and I only had a single key break in 7 YEARS of use. This was a membrane keyboard. Now with my first mechanical keyboard I have had 5 keys break in the span of months, despite this keyboard costing significantly more...

Buy at your own risk.
