Meh. Not that good. Most of the viewers probably already know that it's really just personal preference.

I was waiting for someone to catch this.

"However, since these models are not currently popular or commercially available in many developed countries"

many flaws in that article.

Not popular? Then why do new SSK go for $400+ on ebay then? Even hashed up ones are worth more then HHKBs and Realforce

edit: No mention to the rip-o-meter at all in a mechanical review?!?

Not too impressed with the review but hey, it is from Tom's...

Read the SS 6Gv2 review first (I own one) and it seems the primary importance is placed on gaming. They even go so far as to list 'Very limited office capability' as a con of the keyboard.

Isn't office use basically limited to typing and well... typing? So if someone loves the feel of and enjoys typing on MX Black switches, wouldn't this be a perfect office keyboard?

All in all, the review stinks of the entire 'gaming' mentality... Why does every single piece of hardware have to be shoved down our throats as a 'gaming' product all of a sudden?
At long last...

Money. The gaming crowd things anything that has the word "gaming" in front means it is somehow better, and they will pay more for "gaming".

Offices really suffer with some of the cheapest kraapp imaginable. They may only be "typing", but they have to do forty-sixty words per minute, without errors, for hours on end - and bad keyboards lead to sloppy, error ridden work and workers that end up injured with carpal tunnel or something. I wish they did a little marketing to that segment - nothing is worse than the garbage keyboard I have at work, like really, $3 keyboard in which I spend half my time making corrections because half the keys don't work properly.

Mechanical switches are hard core. I had an old IBM keyboard that clunked on for at least fifteen years, and was only tossed because it was god-awful ugly, had turned yellow, and no motherboards come with a DIN-5 keyboard connection anymore.
