Pros
-All keys are mechanical Cherry MX Black, which is very nice, unlike Corsair's offerings with mixed dome and mechanical switches.
-Other than the big red Tt (Thermaltake) logo, looks very classy, it looks like an ideal office keyboard.
-Comes with a USB hub for two USB ports, microphone/headphone jacks. I especially like this feature.
-Left "Windows" key is replaced by Fn, a smart idea by Thermaltake to prevent gamers from accidentally exiting out of a game.
-Keys are fairly silent when pressed half way
-Seems to be very durable, it exudes of quality throughout. There are even videos of it being run over by a car without getting damaged. Impressive.
-Keyboard is quite compact
-Plug and play, no need to download bloatware drivers
-Has multimedia controls, not bad for a mechanical keyboard.
-Matte finish, very nice on Thermaltake's part.
Cons
-Cable is very thick and short, but since this is connected to a USB extension cable, this is negligible in my case, but could be a problem
-"Key" lock indicator LEDs are too bright and red for my liking. Would prefer much smaller green or blue LEDs.
-List price, but hey, you are getting much better quality than an el-cheapo dome switch keyboard
-Palm rest is fairly cheap looking compared to the keyboard itself
-This keyboard does not have a sound card onboard and has separate microphone and headphone jacks to be connected to the PC. Problem is, again, the cables are short, requiring the use of an extension cable.
-No macros/shortcuts keys. I kind of missed them, as they are a staple of Logitech. However, this is a side effect of not needing special drivers for plug and play.
-The USB port hub function should have been merged with the keyboard USB/PS2 connection. Having two USB connections for a keyboard seems awkward.
-No backlight for the keys, but I can live with that.
-Keys are stiff and heavy compared to Cherry MX Red, which essentially is a lighter version of Cherry MX Black. However, I decided that the heavy stiff feeling is good for me.
Summary
I got this keyboard as an exchange for a defective Logitech G110 at a competitor. I'm glad that I made the "investment" for a mechanical keyboard, it feels very different and much more durable than a dome switch keyboard. If you are like me and hate the click sound of the Cherry Blues, the Blacks of this keyboard is perfect. Highly recommended as a first mechanical keyboard.

Pros
- Build quality is outstanding.
- Mechanical switches (Cherry MX Black).
- Standard layout.
Cons
- Cord is thick and short as other have stated.
Summary
For the price, this keyboard is a great buy. The build quality is outstanding, and the keys are great. It's a no frills mechanical keyboard, and if you want to try Cherry MX Black keys, it's a better purchase than the Steelseries.

Pros
- Build quality is top notch.
- USB 2.0 Hub and Headphone/Mic jacks located at the top of keyboard
- Media keys
- ANSI layout (compared to Steelseries 7G and 6GV2)
Cons
- Cord is too thick and short. They went a bit too far with the braiding.
- Stabilizers for bigger keys not that great so some keys like Spacebar and backspace will squeak
- Wrist rest is pretty flimsy
Summary
I compare this mainly with the Steelseries 6GV2/7G because they share the common Cherry MX Black Switches. I feel it's superior to the 6GV2/7G because of the ANSI layout.

Build quality is excellent, it's one crazy heavy keyboard. If a nuclear apocalypse happened tomorrow I'm sure that cockroaches and the Mekas would be the only things remaining.

I prefer Cherry MX Brown switches over MX Blacks, but this is still way better than a regular membrane. The blacks are great for gaming, but not so much the typing.

Comment: Strong Points: Robust keys Two audio connections and two USB ports Thick cable gathers the four wires from the keyboard Weak Points: Doesn't feature programmable keys No backlighting Thick cable could be difficult to route USB/audio hub too close to the mouse Expensive

Comment: "outstanding performance in both gaming and typing. While Cherry MX Black Switches do not provide an additional tactile response, the sensitivity of the keys and super fast actuation rate make this keyboard a top choice for any gamer.[...]Cons: No backlighting, Lack of macro capabilities"

Comment: "Even with the slight pitfalls this is an amazing keyboard. It has permanently taken the place of my previous one - the Logitech G15. The price is a bit high but if you are wanting a solid keyboard that will work how you want it and last years doing so, I recommend taking a look at the Meka G1"
