Lots of features in a compact form factor
Really love this keyboard, have been meaning to get one for a while now just haven't had the money. cherry mx blue switches are super nice, very audible (some people don't like how loud they are) and tactile response exactly what i was looking for. i believe you can also get this keyboard in brown and red switches. i like to have both my mouse and keyboard fit on my slide-out keyboard try on my desk and it was a pain with my old keyboard (since it was full size). didn't really have much room to maneuver the mouse. this keyboard takes all the features of a full size board w/ 10 key num pad and all and combines them into a smaller form factor that gives me that extra room i need. blue backlight is also really nice looking. windows key disable feature is also really nice when in game. function lock is useful for multimedia. only complaint i have so far is that when the num lock is off the enter key on the keypad is disabled (only the arrow keys are enabled when num lock is off). i wish this enter key was enabled along with the arrow keys when num pad was off. this would make scrolling through drop down menus, for example, a lot easier. other than that, this keyboard is great. it is just taking me a bit of time to get used to the higher-raised keys of a mechanical keyboard since i'm switching from a very low-profile keyboard to this one.
