Even if it's a lot, you get nice keys where it matters, the ones you'll be using to type with.
Silliest thing I've heard today.
I use the F keys somewhat. I use the insert row a lot, especially delete, home and end. The worst part is the esc key and the macro keys. You're marketing your keyboard as an MMO/RTS keyboard where people will be using the macro keys quite heavily, yet don't have uniformity across those keys. Ridiculous.

It's like most any other product ever sold on advertising rather than merit, which is most products today..
No it doesn't.
It's already been discussed that having two different types of circuitry actually would remove any cost savings from not having 40 MX switches.
Also Corsair has been quoted saying that the reason they chose to use rubber domes was NOT to save money, instead to offer more resistance for those keys to prevent "accidental actuation."
