Pros:

Compact design
Cherry MX Brown keys
Solid construction
Great design
Good materials

Cons:

None, really - I suppose I can say the tenkey is radically different (to save space), so it might not be ideal for all users.

Other Thoughts:

I've been looking to cut my teeth on my first mechanical keyboard since an old IBM I owned some 20 years ago. Cherry Brown is a great start. Volume of the key presses is identical to a "standard keyboard", but the tactile response is much better. These keyboards are far more sensitive than a standard keyboard, so if you are a "sloppy" typist, you will register key strokes by brushing up against another key.

Other than that, the USB detachable cord is well-secured, and does not feel flimsy. It's braided cable, so aside from a rabbit wandering into your room for an electronics snack, you're not going to snap it or kink it.

The keyboard is pretty heavy, easily 2x the weight of a standard "dell" or other $10 board. The feet easily support the weight though, so no worries there.

I love the alternative tenkey design. It takes some getting used to, but the LED (white) backlight is strong and easily configured (manual sucks, though - use the FN function key). If you don't use the tenkey that often (like myself), then this board is really a blessing. Smaller form factor really makes it easy to use in smaller areas, it's not tiny (like a PokerKBC), but it is shorter.

Honestly, aside from 10-key entry, this should be pretty standard format for keyboards, not the exception to the norm.
