Pros

Great, minimalist design. Smaller footprint, but still a full-size keyboard. Win-lock key is useful for games.
Cons
Spacebar key not perfect, but issue was easily solved.
Summary
I wanted a full-size mechanical keyboard with a smaller footprint, so there would be a little more room for the Logitech G13. I chose the Cherry MX blue, as I use it mostly for typing (G13 for gaming).

The issue with the space bar is that there can be a bit of friction on the two support springs due the size of the space bar. On my old, cheap keyboard, there was a metal support bracket that ran the length of the space bar, which would not be possible with the mechanical switches. Gigabyte could have used stronger springs, but that probably would have messed up the weighted resistance.

Solution: I added a dab of oil to each of two springs using a cotton swab. I used coconut oil, but any kind of oil or lube should suffice. Now, the space bar works perfectly (and will probably last longer than the other keys... LOL). Note: I did not pop-off/remove the space bar; I applied it from the front, where the springs are visible.

Pros

-Compact layout for a full keyboard
-Solid build quality
-n-key rollover
-Good value for an MX blue mechanical keyboard
Cons
-Spacebar feels a little sloppy
-No scroll lock light (replaced with win lock light)
Summary
Excellent value, you'll be hard-pressed to find another full-size mechanical keyboard with MX Blues for much less than this one.

Thanks to the bezel-less floating key design, it doesn't take up a whole ton of desk room yet still gives you a full set of navigation keys and a numpad. It may not be clear from the picture, but the function keys double as media keys with the addition of a function key modifier, which is nice (I like being able to switch tracks if I'm playing a fullscreen game without Alt+Tabbing out).

To accommodate the win lock key and function key, they've removed the menu key, a decision which I think is fine for most people as it's one of the most rarely used keys on the keyboard. As this keyboard has a Windows Lock key, they've replaced the scroll lock indicator light with a win lock indicator light. I would have preferred that they squeezed both indicator lights in - there would have been enough room to fit them in the bezel. This basically only matters in one specific circumstance - when you're running Microsoft Excel, which uses scroll lock to disable cell-to-cell arrow key navigation - but I would've liked it. Not a big deal.

Build quality feels good. The keyboard is nice and heavy with good rubber feet to prevent it from sliding around on the desk. My only complaint is the spacebar feels a little bit on the sloppy side - I popped off the spacebar cap and it looks like they used a Blue switch on the spacebar as well, I would have preferred they use a switch with a little more force on this key like an MX Green. Again, this is just me being nitpicky, this is probably fine for most people.

The keyboard doesn't have any backlighting or fancy styling. The only branding is a sensibly-sized "Gigabyte" logo between the navigation keys and the arrow keys. I really like this, as it gives the keyboard a much more professional look (I personally dislike peripherals that try to look flashy). It's minimalist and professional, exactly as it should be. I would be perfectly happy to keep this keyboard on my desk at work, which I can't say about many "gaming keyboards."

All in all, it's a great value for a nice mechanical keyboard that doesn't look like it belongs at a rave. Feels really nice to type on, has n-key rollover, and is well built. If you're looking for a mechanical keyboard, I would recommend this one.

Pros

Amazing key switches Cherry MX Blue, Minimalist space saving design. simple straightforward key caps.
Cons
The keys are not programmable so... some Function keys don't exactly work as intended...
Summary
This keyboard is great if what you care about mostly is typing and not so much "how flashy" your keyboard will spin a million colours.

If you want a good time go to a club.. LOL If you want to get your work done buy this keyboard you cannot beat the value!! It has a nice long USB cord too which is really helpful and the ENTER Key is full sized.. some manufacturers create  a reduced enter key which is really crummy... not gigabyte!

Very happy with the purchase.
