Personally I love this keyboard, but I've owned a ton of Apple laptops and am very comfortable with chiclet style keys. I have a few friends who game on these and really like them, and have even watched them rage on them without bending or anything, but it depends on how serious of a gamer/typist you are. I was going to grab one to blend-in with my aluminum FT02 hackintosh setup, because it's a darn fine looking keyboard in my eyes, and because I'm very comfortable on typing it. However, at $70 I decided a CM Quickfire MX brown was a better option at $84.
The only real disadvantages are as follows:
- No 6KRO/NKRO - I haven't owned this keyboard but I've owned others without this feature (and used to play a lot of Marvel vs Capcom on my macbooks). If you're gaming frequently I would avoid any keyboard without this feature, but I should say I didn't have any trouble pulling off 12-key combos and the like on my macbooks, but it did take some getting used to the latency/precise timing. I've been playing MvC for like 12 years and am very comfortable pulling off long combos so that might say something about the learning curve for gamers.
- Chiclet keys - some people don't like the feel.
Otherwise it's awesome IMO
