Pros: Key Switches: As far as I can tell the switches seem to combine the speed of Cherry Reds with tactile feel and sound of the Cherry Blues. This keyboard will not give you a noticeable edge over other mechanical switches, but they are among the fastest on the market as of Q3 2018. The tactile feel and sound of the keyboard is fantastic; I am loving the subtle ting I get from the space bar it seems a calculated and much appreciated addition.
Keyboard: Feels sturdy and high grade. The key font is beautifully simplistic and easy to read like a thin Arial.
Wrist rest: The wrist rest is not overly firm and very comfortable. It easily attaches with a magnetic connector and has subtle yet beautiful edge lighting.
Lighting: The RGB lighting vibrant, but not overpowering. Easy to use for customizing your work/gaming environment. Synapse 3 makes it easy for you to decide just how much distraction you can deal with, although I would have liked a few more reactive options in the settings.
Cons: Aesthetics: The multimedia keys and the function lights (capslock, numlock, etc.) are difficult to distinguish with the combination of a low contrast black on black key mixed with the high contrast of the lighting around the base of the key, and the lack of backlighting on the secondary line of the number and punctuation keys (by this I'm referring to the '!','@', '#', etc. line of characters) means you'll need to memorize them to know what you're hitting when the keyboard is lit. Now to get a little knit picky on the key formatting. I would personally prefer a more uniform alignment on the command keys (ie Left justified on the left tab, caps, shift, and ctrl. Right justified on the right backspace, \, enter, shift and ctrl.) and on the Numpad; where the numbers/functions are again center aligned which nudges the function-less '5' key slightly more right of it's vertical neighbors '8' and '2'. That being said I do wish they would have center aligned the multi-line keys like 'page up' and 'page down' these are left aligned although it's not really noticeable on any key other than 'page up'.
Media Keys: I might be in the minority here, but were I designing this keyboard I may have given some thought to changing the layout to of the keyboard to align the top of the numpad with the function keys ('F1', 'F2', etc.) and moving the multimedia keys down below the numpad for ease of access. All this because the multimedia keys are tighter to the keyboard base which makes it feel awkward to reach over the numpad to use them. The volume control knob is the only one of these keys that sees regular use from me.
Key Switches: I love the key switches but they are loud enough to be picked up on a mic if you haven't properly configured the location and sensitivity of the mic. Also the multimedia keys are definitely not the same switches as the rest of the keyboard and I'll just leave it at that.
Cabling: The keyboard and wrist rest are going to take up 2 USB slots if you want to see the backlighting around the wrist rest. Not an issue if you have ample USB ports but it should be mentioned especially considering there are no cable pass throughs either.
Overall Review: All in all I find the minor aesthetic issues easy to over look, making this keyboard easy to recommend to anyone who wants a versatile keyboard for both gaming and work. However if you're here for the multimedia keys; the volume control knob maybe the only redeeming feature in that aspect of this keyboard.
What more can you say about this wonderful keyboard. Time will tell just how wonderful it is as the only thing left to find out is how well it holds up to rigorous use.
Overall Review: If I didn't have to use the razor software this would be the bees knees.
If quite is what you want, this is not the keyboard you want.
Pros: RGB is better than any photo or video I have seen.
Nice tactile click to the keys. Not to loud just right.
Lives up to all my expectations.
Cons: If you use multiple Razer peripherals you may want to check the compatibility lists for Synapse 2 and Synapse 3. My Naga mouse and My Orbweaver need Synapse 2 and This keyboard needs Synapse 3. Not a major problem unless you want to sync them.
Overall Review: I would purchase again. I don't think I will need to though. My last keyboard was 20 years old.
Pros: Had it for a about a week now and love the very stable keys
Beautiful rgb configuration in synapse
instant lazer senser with virtually no delay
great for gamers
Feels similar to a cherry mx blue
cutting edge switch design
Cons: Very loud but not noticable during gameplay.
Overall Review: this is could be pro or con. but the switches are very easy to press. leading to some mistypes. but easy to get used to.
Pros: not sure didn't even get to use it
Overall Review: so this is more of a review from the shipper not the product its self I paid for a new keyboard and was sent an unpackaged used broke keyboard that was power surging it wasn't even shipped in its box i got it in bubble wrap and no instruction very professional...i think not! now i have been a customer of newegg for years now and spent lots of money Newegg its self has been good to me but beware from where your item is being shipped in this case it came from china i have uploaded photos detailing the clear evidence of wear and tear on what was suppose to be brand new item!
Rgb options are great.
Cons: Really loud.
Wakes up my neighbors.
Overall Review: Best board I've ever used. Just too loud.
Overall Review: Great KB, fast tactile response. Every gamer should have a KB like this
Pros: Media buttons and dial are very pleasant to map and feel.
Cons: Personal preference con - I like a more tactile switch, these feel more linear but have a very nice feel to them. Not really a con knowing its a linear switch board but Im still missing those clacky greens
Overall Review: Very solid beautiful keyboard love razers more minimal, not in your face approach.
