This keyboard is good. Build quality is good. Lightning is good. Feels good. Sounds good.
However, it will annoy your girlfriend so much when you are playing your game and your girlfriend is trying to watch TV.
My girlfriend freaks out and yells at me my keyboard is making way too much noise and she can not watch her TV.
Well, this only applies to you if your PC and TV is in the same room.
I should just move out or something.
Other than that, very good keyboard.

Had this keyboard for a couple of months. Never wrote a review because who cares what someone on the internet says?

I have never had a problem with this keyboard. Driver install was simple, and I didn't even install it on the computer the keyboard is currently used with.
This keyboard comes with blue switches, meaning it gives a tactile feedback (you can feel when the keys are pressed) and audio feedback (the keys click like a typewriter). I would recommend doing some research into the type of switches you want. There are many types including my preferences; brown, blue, and red. Brown gives a tactile feedback without the audio. Blue I have already described, Red gives neither, which is nice if you only want the speed boost and reliability of a mechanical keyboard. The most common switch out there is blue, because it is the classic switch, the one that most people s think is the only option.
Razer is a great brand for gaming. Getting their ergonomic mouse for Christmas, the one that matches this keyboard. Both of them have the green backlight which really makes people notice your awesome 'board.
This keyboard would be great for people who wish they could connect a typewriter to their computer. It comes in a nice, professional box. Would look great for Christmas. I only recommend that you look into the switch types. I believe that this keyboard only comes with blue.

Enough with the mickey mouse keyboards that have been the norm with computers over the last ten plus years....I am so sick of having them fail within months and be completely unmaintainable. No such problem with this keyboard. I am typing on it now and it reminds me so much of the early IBM System 370 keyboards, ie robust, designed to last and can be maintained, cleaned and to a certain degree, disassembled. I will never go back to the glorified chiclet designs of the modern computers. With the mechanical keyboard, you know immediately when you have made a successful keystroke...the feeling has to be experienced to fully understand. If you aren't an old timer computer-wise like myself, it might take a little while to get used to the feel of the keystrokes...but you will never go back :) !

Really good keyboard. It doesn't use the plunger key system that a lot of keyboards use these days, but rather little plastic bits that physically click down, activating a switch. This keyboard is CLICKY. Loud clicky. Tick off your wife clicky. But it is responsive, and that's what I want in a keyboard so good show! It has a bunch of macro buttons you can program, which I'm told makes you better at video games, but I haven't used them. The keys are backlit green which is pretty neat. It's pretty heavy too, so you can beat down a home invader with it if that happens to you. I don't think that function is in the manual though.

I've been searching for a real backlit gaming keyboard for a while. I've been reading about the best mechanical ones, and I knew about the blackwidow Ultimate for a long time too. So, after some more research, I decided to go pick it up at my local hardware store. At first, I was blown away by how solid it felt. The keys were great, backlighting was fantastic, macros were cool...

But, right out of the box, some keys (mainly the spacebar) got stuck. Now, I've read a lot about this happening and about some cases where the spacebar would actually press the ALT keys aswell. So, I took a file and took care of it. Nope. It wasn't hitting any other keys, just getting stuck down. For a 150$ keyboard, that's unacceptable. I returned it but I was sure that I'd simply be lucky of getting one actually '' perfectly '' working. So,I got a G19. It's awesome, but I miss the mechanical keys...

Bottom line: Be sure of what you are buying and be sure to have the possibility to return it if anything isn't working properly.

Owner for almost 5 months.

Great quality. I do not feel a performance upgrade from my old Razer Lycosa playing competive games (CS:GO, SC2, DOTA2). If anything double tapping a key is a bit harder than with a dome keyboard.

Keys are very responsive, and you can clearly hear/feel when you activate one.

Overall, I am satisfied. Not sure yet if I will buy another Mechanical Keyboard after this one dies out. (If it ever dies out..)

This keyboard has the thickest cord on it I've ever seen, and that is a major plus to me. My previous keyboard was a Microsoft Sidewinder, and it only failed because of the cord, much like every pair of earbuds you have ever used.

The only negative for me is that it is a very very loud keyboard, but that is off-set by a much nicer feel to the keys.
