Pros: -The per-key lighting is amazing
-Being able to reassign every key or give them macros is amazing
-Easy-Shift is amazing
-The thumb macro keys... well, they'll probably be amazing once I find a use for them. Right now I'm using them as previous, play/pause, next in windows and I haven't decided what they'll be on game profiles... probably some hard to reach keys or macros or something...
-It really has NKRO... I pressed like all the keys at the same time and they all registered lol.
-All the keys are mechanical - there aren't any metal springs/supports to mess with when taking off the keys and putting on o-rings.
Cons: -The wrist rest doesn't lay flush against the desk, it's about 1/2 inch off it, so it kinda hurts my right wrist when typing. I had to roll up a paper towel and put it under it to give the final support between the rest and my desk. Not ideal.
-The num lock & scroll lock lights are blindingly bright and aren't affected by lighting settings. I REALLY hope they release a firmware update or something that fixes this.
-Needs 2 USB plugs, but I knew that.
-The bottom row of keys all have an upward angle rather than downward slope so your thumb is constantly hitting a sharp edge and it kinda hurts your thumb. You can take the space bar off and put it on upside down; it'll make the lightning not work and look a little funny but the slope will be good and it's a decent workaround.
-The super glossy finish across the entire face of the keyboard is a bit distracting.
Other Thoughts: Overall the keyboard has a ton of amazing features but there are a few design flaws that shows that Roccat still has a bit to learn about keyboard design. The wrist rest and space bar slope should have been common sense but somehow it was missed.READ FULL REVIEW
