5 out of 5 eggsUpdate of my previous review

Pros: Same as before. A great keyboard.

Cons: One thing I've noticed upon using this keyboard for the six weeks I've been using it is there's something odd going on with the backlighting when I put my computer into sleep mode. I have the backlight set to the medium, and when I put the computer to sleep, sometimes the backlight goes to the highest brightness and stays on. In normal circumstances this wouldn't bother me, but my computer is in my bedroom, and the LEDs on brightest setting practically light up the whole room when my lights are off. I don't know if there's some issue in the drivers that causes this, but it doesn't do it all the time.

Other Thoughts: I've had no other issues with this keyboard. If you're in the market for a Cherry MX Blue board, I'd still recommend this one.

5 out of 5 eggsHelp for Matthew

Pros: This is just to help Matthew D.'s comment about turning off the keyboard lights.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Matthew D...... Holding down the Fn key and hitting 2 lowers the lights in steps and will turn them off. Hitting 8 brightens them in steps.
You may have to load the keyboard software for this to take affect but that's no problem.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Solid, responsive and so far, worth the price. Wrist pad is very comfortable. My gaming still sucks, but now I can't blame it on the keyboard.

Cons: Took 29hrs from when I placed the order to my front door. Terrible service!!! (unless you're Sheldon Cooper, I think you'll understand this is sarcasm).
I went from a Microsoft Ergo keyboard so getting used to the closer keys took a few days.

Other Thoughts: My wife has the Das Keyboard and except for the backlighting on this I can't tell the difference. And the lights are great in a dark room. I haven't used the macros yet but not sure I need them. The feel of these Blue Cherry keys spoil you. Would make it hard to go back to a non mechanical keyboard.

5 out of 5 eggsNostalgia

Pros: It has a nice feel to the entire board. The execution to your finger strokes, feel and sound final. The back lighting is a godsend for us night owls. I did swap the keys for gaming, even though I don't game that much, it does make it slightly easier to feel the keys. The USB and headphone ports were handier than I thought they would be.

Cons: The price was steep, I knew this going in, but it's still kind of high. While I love the sound, if you do a lot of typing this might not be for you. I do wish there was a button to turn of the back light. None of these were deal breakers to me.

Other Thoughts: I am old enough to remember when all keyboards were mechanical. So the weight, the feel, and the sound, take me back a little. You just got to realize nostalgia comes at a premium price.

5 out of 5 eggsApollo RK-9100xB

Pros: -Rubberized/texturized surfaces
-Cherry MX-Blue switches + mechanical keys
-heavy duty feeling plastics and superb build quality
-Slim profile + detachable wrist rest
-Headphone/Mic Pass-through + 2 port USB 2.0 hub
-Macroable keys
-N-Key Rollover (anti-ghosting)
-Heavy braided cable + gold plated connectors
-Bright LED's with 4 settings: Breathe, normal, bright, and "OW MY EYES!"

Cons: The software could use a little polishing. While it does work, it could use a little more user friendly interface. As I say the software does work so I will not remove an egg, but I just hope it gets a graphical overhaul and streamlining update in the future.

I really wish that the Num-Lock, Caps-Lock, and Game mode indicator LEDs (located above the num pad to the right of the F-keys) were buttons of some kind. maybe profile mode keys for fast macro setup switching? I think that would have topped this keyboard off nicely.

One possible "Con" would be the Braided cable. It is very thick and stiff because it also has the headphone/mic cables there as well. While is not a problem for me (in fact, its more of a benefit) this may not be a good keyboard if you plan to use it with a laptop, or similar mobile device.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this keyboard over its competition because of the overall similar feature set while maintaining a slim profile that would fit in my limited desk space. I also use a G-13 gamepad so I really only use the keyboard for typing.

In closing I would like to add that this keyboard is HEAVY and well built with thick plastics. I was immediately impressed with the overall attention to detail and hardy feeling. Also, This keyboard is a pleasure to type on, the MX-Blue switches feel awesome, and the individually lit keys look great.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: Beautiful fit and finish, very responsive Cherry MX Blue switches, shiny blue LEDs.

Cons: None yet, though this seems like a very sturdy keyboard, so I'm not expecting any problems.

Other Thoughts: This is my first mechanical keyboard, so I'm still getting used to how the switches feel, but it is a pleasure to type on. Shipping was fast as always. Overall a fantastic purchase.
