Pros: Great tactile feedback (Cherry MX Reds) with light actuation; fast repsonse times, 20-key rollover

Cons: Included textured WASD keys not super useful, keyboard rest only for left hand

I went into Central Computers in search of a nice mechanical keyboard; my primary uses are typing (programming) and light gaming. I tried out a few other keyboards, but I found that this had a nice combination of key height, a certain clackiness, and touch sensitivity. Other keyboards had a larger hight difference between rows, which tripped me up when coming from a flat laptop keyboard, and I found this easier to navigate. The keys are a little touchy, due to light actuation weight and distance, but I like that.

They include textured keys for WASD and 1-6, but I don't use them, because my primary use is typing, not gaming, and I find them distracting. Also, the F-row of keys are not mechanical, but that doesn't seem like a dealbreaker for my use.

In all, I think I got a great keyboard for a solid price.

Note: this is my first intentional experience with Cherry switches. I am by no means a mechanical keyboard expert, but spending 10-12 hours a day on keyboards, I feel like I can give this a reasonably accurate review.
