Pros
+Mechanical Keys
+Cherry Reds
+Blue LEDs
+5 Macro keys with Aivia button
+Replaceable iconic macro keys
+Comes with Key reomover
Cons
-Flip up stands, can flip down easy
-Didn't come with O-Rings
-Macro is placed in a bad place, sometimes pushing the F-keys instead
-Rubber feets can be better, still moves
Summary
One of the best full Mechanical keyboard with macro keys, cherry reds and LEDs, the LEDs can be controlled with the mouse wheel on the keyboard, turn off/brightness.

I didn't give it a 5 star cause of the O-rings, it was good without, but with the O-rings this keyboard became the best thing I have had, the feeling of Cherry keys without the "tacking" noise.

Pros
Nice mechanical keys, good backlighting, seems to be built solidly and sturdily.
Cons
I have had issues with it not working several times, which has required unplugging and replugging it in. Keys seem to be slightly smaller than the standard size keys.
Summary
I've enjoyed using the keyboard and I like the type of mechanical keys it uses. I would have liked to know before hand that the actual size of the keys seems to be a bit smaller than the standard keys from any other keyboard I have. This shrinks the length of the keyboard down, which may be good for some with limited space, but I have fairly big hands and I would have rather just had full sized keys. The smaller keys take a bit of getting used to, to not fumble words and make typos. I would recommend it still, despite the smaller keys if I hadn't had issues with the keyboard locking up / shutting off, forcing a physical unplug / replug before getting it to work, several times.

Pros
- Solid build qualty
- Excellent package
- Adjustable Back-lit/volume scroll wheel
- Convenient USB3 extension port
Cons
- No dedicated media keys
- USB/audio connectors are all tied together
Summary
Overall I'm very happy with this keyboard. It's very pleasant to type and game with and would recommend this to anyone who needs a keyboard for work and play. One potential issue that others may run into though is that the audio connectors are attached together with the USB connectors so you can't reach any of the expansion slots where your sound card is located.

Pros
Very fast MX Red switch keyboard
Heavy sturdy construction
Good wrist rest
Good macro system
Cons
Blue Backlight
Some key shake
Cannot dim very bright Aivia logo
No PS/2 connector
Summary
I've been using this keyboard off and on for playing CS:Source for the past couple of months and for the most part I have enjoyed it.

With a good red switch keyboard like this you can use the light touch to almost float your hand on the keys and the results can be pretty good.

Some users will really like the look of the blue backlight but it doesn't work well for me as I find that colour to produce eyestrain and be difficult to see so for the most part I have it switched off. There is no dimming the Aivia logo however and I had to deal with it by putting insulation tape over it.

These comments may be nit picking but if they were addressed this would possibly be the best gaming board out there, especially as it is usually quite a bit cheaper than competing boards.

Pros
Beautiful construction, great key feedback, bright LED keys.
Cons
Honestly, none.
Summary
This is my first gaming mechanical keyboard, and I gotta say next to a SSD upgrade, this is simply the best upgrade to my computer use I've experienced.

Coming from the similarly priced Roccat Valo (non-mechanical true) gaming board, there's no other comparison. They LEDs are 5x as bright, the construction more durable, and the software more intuitive and less prone to glitches. The tactile feedback of the keys is exactly what you expect from a mechanical keyboard without being overly intrusive. To top it off, it came packaged near-bulletproofed.

Not only worth the money, I'd pay it again and recommend it to friends.

Pros
-Has built-in USB 3.0 (but requires connection to port on M/B), only keyboard (at time of writing) with this feature
-Fully mechanical Cherry MX Red switches, unlike Corsair with partial dome switch nonsense
-Blue backlighting, which matches very well with my Corsair M60 mouse. I liked this feature.
-Cool looking and comfortable wrist rest (with no ugly logos), reminds me of the Logitech Wave keyboard that I owned years ago
-Includes a key cap puller (about $5 value), and has a unique "win lock" key for disabling the Windows key for gaming.
-Analog wheels for backlighting and volume look retro, but looks cool. Effective for fine tuning the brightness and volume, respectively.
-Feels very easy and comfortable to type on, I had a mech keyboard with Cherry MX Black switches and that keyboard was not good for long typing sessions. However, I did like the non-tactile feel of the Black switches, so I went with the Red switches of this one.
-Keyboard has a USB 2.0 passthrough, works like the Logitech G110 passthrough, it is powered by the keyboard itself, so it's less complicated than a USB HUB.
-64 key rollover, this feature really sold on me. Perfect for virtual piano and multiplayer gaming on the same keyboard.
Cons
-Price, but this keyboard feels much better to type on than my previous mechanical keyboard, so this con is negated out. Well worth the price. Otherwise, there are no real cons.
-As stated in a YouTube unboxing review of this keyboard, the box is HUGE (cue in the "that's what she said" joke). But the keyboard itself is actually smaller than my previous mechanical keyboard, so I'm assuming that it was packaged big to protect the keyboard from damage.
Summary
This is my second mechanical keyboard, and the first keyboard that I truly admire the most. Unlike Corsair's offerings (K60 and K90), this keyboard features the same Cherry MX Red switches, however this keyboard does not cheap out with partial dome switch nonsense, it's all 100% mechanical here. I also liked that the software GIGABYTE has provided does not boot from startup, so it's not intrusive at all.

Very well worth the price if you have not got a mechanical keyboard yet, it is a dream to type on. Highly recommended, 5/5.

Pros
- Feels very well made and durable
- Well priced compared to other mechanical keyboards
- Very pleasant to type on
- Back-lighting can go from very dim to very bright
Cons
- Only blue back-lighting
- The macro keys' software is kinda slow to respond
Summary
This is my first mechanical keyboard and boy does it make a big difference! For anyone hesitating to go mechanical, don't! Just do yourself a favor and buy one!

Pros
Very well built,
leds can be adjusted to whatever brightnness you want.
heavy which i like for keyboard.
Cons
none
Summary
i was looking for a long time on what keyboard to buy,

i went to the store and felt almost every keyboard.

Stay away from those corsiark60 and k90 compaired to this those things are CHEEEEAAAP.

the leds are amazing and the addition of a usb 3.0 on the keybnoard is nice because i only have 3.0 on the back of my computer so that will be handy.

Pros
- Excellent tactile feel for both gaming and every day use
- Nicely illuminated keys
- Ghost macro features are good
- Very solid, weighs a ton
Cons
- No dedicated media keys
Summary
I have had this keyboard for about 3 days and I must say what a difference it makes in every day use. The keys feel so nice to type on. Some prefer blues/browns for typing but for me I think this is the best of both worlds if you game and type on your keyboard. I find the Black switches to be very noisy compared to the reds, thats why I chose this one instead. I have switched from my logitech g15 v2 and what a difference. BUY THIS! You will not regret it.Best purchase I have made so far as for a good gaming keyboard.
