Pros: I've really liked this keyboard a lot so far. The black keys are quite stiff compared to my old Blackwidows Cherry Blues but I'm sure I'll get used to it sooner than later. I love the compact feel of the keyboard overall and the build quality, for the money, is outstanding. I'd highly recommend it if you're using a Blackwidow and wanting something with a bit more resistance to the touch. I also appreciated the key remover that came with it for free and the ps/2 connector which I will likely never use, but again it's a nice bonus.
Cons: I miss the clicking sound the blue switches gave me, but the dull sound that this keyboards key makes is quite charming in its own way. It's a lot quieter then other switches. My other complaint would be that the red LED lights are a smidge on the bright side.
Other Thoughts: I found this to be a very solid keyboard. I got it on sale for 54 dollars shipped and so far I can't say I regret it. It has VERY nice build quality. If you're looking at a cheap entry level mechanical keyboard you really can't be disappointed with this. My one suggestion is that you should start off with some blue switches because these black ones are quite difficult for someone new to these to get used to initially.. nothing that a bit of time can't fix though.READ FULL REVIEW
