  • BLUE CHERRY SWITCHES

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget mechanical keyboard

Pros: Good quality. Nice click! I'm very happy so far.

Cons: Same as some others. Wrist rest secured loosely. I don't bother with it. I just left it off.

Other Thoughts: If you get it on sale it is a solid mechanical keyboard that is well lit.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat deal on a great keyboard

Pros: Solid heavy feel to keyboard, thick ridged rubberized plastic coating, passive USB hub with single connection, perfectly sized wrist wrest, two position legs, amazing deal at $70, crisp responsive keys (but aren't all cherry blues that way), clean look without silly logos or edgy marketing nonsense.

Cons: Not much bad to say especially at the price of $70. The led lights only have three levels and a breathing mode witch is not bad but a key press mode would have been nice. Also a few more macro slots would have been good

Other Thoughts: Keyboards and mice are extremely subjective based on the user but this is by far the best one, mechanical or not, that I have ever used.

5 out of 5 eggsBest option for the money spent!

Pros: REAL Cherry Blue switches, Great quality, Nice loud clicks for us touch typists, Nice even red backlighting with fade option, Great company backing it up, Easy to use macro software, Same size as a standard keyboard for tighter spaces.

Cons: NONE.

Other Thoughts: This was an impulse buy I made when scouting a gaming keyboard while bored one night. I already had a great mouse from this company and thought, for a great sale price on the Egg, I'd try this one out. Glad I did! It's got a great tactile feedback only available from real Cherry Blue switches, and the keyboard layout is normal, with no silly switches that only seem to make the keyboard too large for normal pull out drawers. It manages to do macros just fine with it's included software and a simple Fn switch, no muss, no fuss.

The backlighting is great, with several brightness levels and even a fade function, nice. The whole keyboard is covered in a rubbery coating(detachable palm rest included), that makes the whole experience feel premium. I challenge anyone to find another mechanical keyboard, with REAL Cherry switches, great easy to use software and of course SIZE, for the price you pay here. Good luck, I've been looking for over a year now and was ecstatic to find this one....Just buy it, you'll thank yourself in the morning!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: Solid construction. Heavy enough to not move around on you.
Standard 104-key size. Media controls and macro buttons are Function+F1-12 keys, so no extra space used by dedicated macro / media controls.
Dual USB pass through ports at the back right.
Red back panel under the keys reflects the key LED's enough to nicely outline the key caps.
Detachable wrist rest.
No software required to use media keys
Macro setup software is very simply and straight forward.
Nice sleeved USB cable.
Standard Cherry MX switches mean you can use any aftermarket o-rings or keycaps you want.

Cons: Does not come with o-rings on the key caps, so out of the box it can be a little loud.

Function key takes the place of the right Windows key (between Alt and menu key).

"Func Mode" disables the windows key, meaning you can't use a macro template to remap the menu key as a windows key (see point above).

Other Thoughts: After installing a set of o-rings, it is significantly quieter (no loud "clack" from bottoming out the keys). I would not consider owning a mechanical keyboard without o-rings or some sort of damper.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Mechanical Keyboard So Far

Pros: Solid, heavy feel to it - love that it doesn't slide around my desk in use like my previous Microsoft Ergo keyboard.

Cherry Blue switches all function as you would expect!

Plug-and-play worked fine.

Good price when on sale for a solid basic full mechanical keyboard (got it for $85, but it has apparently been even cheaper).

Cons: FUNC software has a terrible UI for keybinding and macros.

As others have mentioned, the user manual states that a keypuller comes with this keyboard, but it doesn't.

F keys and any other multi-function keys with stacked glyphs are not lit very well, the first glyph is fine, but the secondary ones are significantly dimmer.

Braided cord is more orange, while the keyboard backlight is very red.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Thrills. Just a very solid keyboard.

Pros: I've been a huge fan of Func for their business model.
I own their MS-3 r2 mouse for a while and loved how their products do what they are supposed to do.

This keyboard is no different. It's driverless and functions perfectly. Cherry blues feel beautiful to type on. My previous keyboard was a Corsair K70 with reds, so the shift was night to day.

Cons: I was a bit disappointed that Func didn't go with an orange backlight. I suppose they wanted to cater to the black/red crowd as the market is flooded with that color combo

Other Thoughts: I would love a tenkeyless option.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Keybord

Pros: Heavy
durable
Comfortable
Braided cord
smooth
fun to type with

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: User error, I spilled some sweet tea on the keyboard. For now, I am using my backup keyboard while it is drying. Be careful, with drinks. It would of been a lot easier cleaning it up if it had been just water. Great keyboard none the less, I like the clicking sound and I have heavy hands so this is perfect for me, since you have to use a little more force to engage each key.

4 out of 5 eggsFor Better or Worse

Pros: You got the Func. Literally plug and play (your experience may vary). Mechanical Cherry Blue. Programmable. Great packaging. Has not failed on me yet. 2 usb on board and in the right place (not 3.0 though). Simple and to the point actually.

Cons: MSRP is VERY high when you consider it doesn't have a lot going for it. Doesn't come with a key puller like it says in the manual. If you get past the solid construction it does look pretty normal, like there's nothing really special about it (sigh). The finish looks quite good though, but it's also the finger print magnet, and you can easily see dust and small particles that make you want to clean it every now and then (some spots feel like they don't go away...). The red backlight is good, it works really well when I need it to, but now everyone thinks you got cherry reds

Other Thoughts: Essentially a no-nonsense cherry blue keyboard that does everything a regular non-mechanical keyboard does. Compared to other keyboards in its class however, it doesn't have the in your face color options. The MSRP is also quite ridiculous there are cheaper options if you're looking for something similar, but I got this when it was a $79.99 (SOLID deal if you ask me). With GREAT build quality and presentation I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a quality board. But truth be told I'd be hard pressed to even consider getting a mechanical keyboard if don't see any real world difference, and it really all comes down to what you want. Choose the color before the board, then try it out before actually buying. I got this baby because I liked to type and getting that sound feedback was godly thanks to my preference of cherry blues.

4 eggs for excellent build and presentation
-1 for fact that it doesn't feel very special

4 out of 5 eggsA steal for the price I paid

Pros: Price, purchased from newegg for 69.99. Glad I jumped on it

Rubberized coating is a pleasure to feel

Cherry mx blue keys are great!

Cons: Although the rubberized coating is nice, its very easy to get dirty

thats it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat keyboard, Double Check your Model

Pros: Great keyboard overall. Very sturdy and responsive, the two USB ports are great, and the finish is very nice. I prefer matte over overtly shiny peripherals. It does everything I need and none of the things I don't.

Cons: None so far. It is a board of keys, as advertised.

Other Thoughts: Only issue I had is not with the keyboard itself. I ordered the Cherry MX Blues and instead received the Browns. I prefer Blues but didn't want to return it after finally receiving it. If you are particular about your switches, definitely check on the box which switches you got before opening it.
