Make sure mini-USB is plugged in all the way!
Pros: Cherry MX Red switch is really nice, linear style key presses with no tactile bump or clacks, but requires less force to type than Cherry MX Black.
Cons: Setting up requires some effort - literally - make sure you plug the USB cable right. See below.
Overall Review: Responding specifically to multiple people who said it was DOA -- I think everyone might have had the same problem as me! When I first plugged it in, my Win7 (64bit) reported problems with the USB device and it was classified as an Unknown USB device and won't work. I panicked and scrambled online for drivers and stuff but found nothing. Then I read a couple of reviews here that were helpful, and here is the important part: The micro-USB port on the back of the keyboard -- it needs to be plugged in ALL THE WAY! The most important clue to look for is that there should be NO metal part showing. When I plugged it in the first time, I thought it was all the way in, but there is still some metal part showing. That's why it had a problem. I unplugged it and plugged it again with more force, and it's all the way in with no metal showing. Bam, it works!
Wireless extremely slow in default settings, need fixing!
Pros: Easy to do the basic setup, works well when set up correctly (only!).
Cons: When used in conjunction with certain ISPs, the router has a bug and you need to troubleshoot!
Overall Review: Like many others, I have the combo of a popular ISP in California + this router. Like everyone else found, when connected to ethernet the speed is awesome (download 15-25mbps) but usng wireless, the speed is snail (download 0.2mbps). After searching online, the solution is to go to the QoS page (under Apps & Gaming tab) on the router admin page, and DISABLE this "WMM Support" functionality. This is a bugged functionality that will cap your wireless speed when using this ISP's modem. (WMM is some optimization feature if you look it up) I'm writing this review to make sure everyone knows about this! If it wasn't for this bug, I would give this a router a 5-star, so far in my 3 day experience with it.
