4 out of 5 eggsGood so far

Pros: Nice mechanical feel, no feet to break off, nice wrist rest., and it's wireless! And if you don't like the caps, visit wasd's site (or the dozens of other cherry cap mod sites) and change the look and feel of your caps. If you have small to average hands, this won't be the keyboard for you. No software to install either. Just plug in the receiver and go.

Cons: Wireless range could be better. No indicator for caps lock (on keyboard or on screen).

Other Thoughts: Newegg should really stock this keyboard again. Had to visit a website that borrows it's name from a well-known river to get it. You left me with no choice Newegg!

3 out of 5 eggsNot worth the savings.

Pros: Packs a whole lot of good features into one package, for less. RF wireless, Cherry MX switches, etc. The switches are the same as any you'd get so the performance is great, and for less than you'd spend on other companies' keyboards.

Cons: Keycaps are extremely cheap. Managed to have two break within the first month, as well as one key switch. I think the key switches are supposed to be removable but I have had no luck. Company could not be contacted for RMA - fortunately Newegg was very generous and provided excellent support!

3 out of 5 eggsNice Keyboard, horrible range

Pros: nice keys, nice feel, somewhat heavy. Wonderful to type on, and not too loud.

Cons: No range! The keyboard literally needs to be within 8 inches of and with direct line of sight to the receiver. If you have something on your desktop you can plug the receiver into (monitor, hub), it will be Ok. You're not plugging the receiver into the back of the PC, that's for sure.

Other Thoughts: Don't recommend. there's other keyboard just as good without the range problem.

4 out of 5 eggsNot a bad keyboard overall.

Pros: After much searching for a wireless mechanical keyboard, it appeared the X-Armor U9W was about the only real choice.

Overall, it's a decent keyboard. I yanked off the keycaps and put the blank ones from my Das Keyboard onto it (keeps people I don't want on my computer off of it.)

The fit and finish are fine. I really appreciate that the keyboard isn't all glossy like the Das which is prone to slimy fingerprints. It's nice and heavy, the way a keyboard should be. Battery life seems to be rather decent (I type /a lot/), and batteries hold out for weeks at a time for me.

The mechanical keyswitches are why I bought this keyboard though; they're overall the best thing about it. It feels like a keyboard should. (Well, without buckling springs, which would get me divorced I'm pretty sure.)

I'm quite fond of the little LED light that blinks every time it transmits. Too many times I've been left wondering if my wireless keyboard is working at all because it gives no indicatio

Cons: My only real complaints about this keyboard are the fact that the battery door seems rather flimsy, and I worry about breaking it one of these days changing the batteries, or dealing with issue #2.

And that is its penchant for just stopping. It seems if it gets knocked or tapped too hard, it just turns itself off. The batteries are still in there nice and strong (and I'm not talking about dropping it on the floor, just nudging it aside when you place it beside you on the couch or something.)

When this happens, the only way to get it back is to open the battery door, remove a battery, and put it back again. And then it's as good as new.

Other Thoughts: Overall, given the chance to do it again, I would purchase this keyboard. It's a good device, and so far it hasn't really let me down.

1 out of 5 eggspass on this keyboard

Pros: nice mechanical feel

Cons: Don't bother with this keyboard. Mine died after a few hours. Keystrokes were not sent to the computer, blue light stuck on... you get what I'm saying. After a call with tech support which involved plugging keyboard in with usb cable, still no life. Plastic of battery cover and wrist rest also very cheaply made and brittle - pieces/tabs fall off after almost no use. This company/keyboard has a ways to go.

Other Thoughts: nice looking keyboard but it doesn't work unfortunately.

3 out of 5 eggsGood keyboard, horrible signal

Pros: -Good mechanical keyboard
-Responsive switches, good build quality
-Nice rubber coating

Cons: -Horrible wireless signal.
-Keyboard sits in a tray under my desk, keyboard has to be completely out in the open to work and even then signal isn't very solid
-Keys don't register at all if the signal is obstructed by the smallest thing.
-2-3 ft range defeats the purpose of having a wireless keyboard.

Other Thoughts: Not recommended. You're better off getting a wired keyboard.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive

Pros: Let me start by saying this is my first Mechanical Keyboard. I've used MX blue's before for brief periods but never owned.

This by far is the best keyboard I've owned. The constuction is solid. MX browns are exactly my come of tea. Keyboard is solidly built, don't know why the negative reviews. The wireless feature is very useful for me, considering I run a KVM setup with around 30 wires, even with wire management, is a complete mess. I wanted an easier solution. Also, no worries of accidental cable yanks, or purchasing another protector. For the price, people expect more, but this is a mechanical keyboard. Solidly built, wireless and mechanical all under $100 is perfect.

Cons: DO NOT USE THE WRIST PAD. It oozes cheap awful afterthought. Nice textured surface, but you'll regret it the minute you install it, and it is next to impossible to uninstall it without doing some damange.

Other Thoughts: I didn't really expect much else from this keyboard. What I really wanted is an Otaku tenkeyless with PBT keys possible laser etched or double shot key caps, but those can be bought after market for $35. I don't need a ton of keys, I have a logitech gameboard for gaming, I use this for typing. I didn't want the acutation force to be that of a red and be fully linear, but wanted a linear experince. Red's seemed too light for me, I might have made mistakes. Browns are sensational for typing, and don't make a racket like Blues. I thougth about picking up a Model M style buckling spring, but went for the less force browns.

I'm a student, who must type quite a few reports. I didn't have the money for a Torpe keyboard which costs upwards of 200, so this was the next best thing. I don't mean to degrade the keyboard at all.


For all the negative reviews: Stop rating how you WANTED the keyboard, rate it for what it is. It is a fantastic keyboard. Does its job well.

4 out of 5 eggsHits all my keyboard requirements

Pros: After deciding to make the plunge on a mechanical keyboard, I came up with several requirements:

1) Cherry Brown Switches: they seemed like the sweet spot for typing comfort vs noise.
2) Wireless with nano-receiver: I've used wireless keyboards for years and didn't want to give up the convenience. I like to leave the nano-receiver plugged into my laptop, so I can "dock" at my desk without plugging in yet another cable.
3) "Small" enter key: I hate when keyboards have Enter keys that take up two rows and move the backslash key somewhere inconvenient.
4) Number pad: I use number pads often enough that I need one, so the compact layout keyboards were not an option.

The U9W met my requirements and was one of the cheapest mechanical keyboards I could find. I was a little worried that it was a deal too good to be true, but that was not the case. I've had it for nearly a year now and it's been great.

Cons: I would have liked to have a couple media keys (Play/Pause, vol up/down), but that's a minor thing.

The wireless range isn't terrific. I'd say anything more than 8 feet from the receiver can cause intermittent loss of keystrokes. Fortunately, I'm using it with a laptop that's never more than 3-4 feet from the keyboard.

Other Thoughts: The reviewer who claimed that the USB cable fixed his stuttering needs to replace his batteries. The manual states that the USB cable carries no data, and that it's only used for powering the keyboard.

2 out of 5 eggsNo Free Mouse

Pros: Mechanical keystrokes are precise and accurate. Tremendous accuracy and tactile response makes the keyboard some what worth it's hefty price tag, but read below...

Cons: Did not get my free mouse that was promise in the advert.

Secondly, and perhaps most importantly is that this keyboard is fundamentally flawed in the response and reception. It suffers from a serious stutters, which means you cannot play any games with it. I've owned the keyboard for 3 weeks now and I'm forced to play with the USB cable connected, which defeats the whole purpose of the wireless function.

Other Thoughts: Apart from the stuttering and bad reception, the keyboard is pretty awesome, but thats due to the MX cherry brown mechanical parts, not so much the keyboard design.
