With my nostromo, unless i'm trying an email or a google search, I never have to touch the keyboard ( hands are always on the nostromo and my naga )
Price - Insane. For that amount, I would much rather buy another monitor, an SSD, a new GPU ( office computers are pretty old ), pay my taxes, a very nice high end mechanical board, two cheaper mech keyboards, two nostromos, etc. The most I would pay for this item is $100, and that's only if my nostromo broke, Maybe if I can find it on a store shelf i'll try it for a few days, and return it. ( which i often do with items like this ) the way i see it, if I miss it, i'll go back and buy it, if not, i don't really need it.
Design - I like the additional keys, mechanical is nice ( not sure how annoying it may be in an office setting ) its weight is just under a half a pound, I feel like the original nostromo was way too light, and before I added weight to it, it slid around my desk quite often. I still think that will be a problem with this model. For the price, I would fully expect an option to change the led color, like the naga epic
Worries - Synapse, enough said. No thumb spacebar button, no scroll wheel, the adjustment locks looked weak in the animation video. Extra row of keys may be hard to reach for smaller hands.
Other thoughts - you need a wide desk to fit this, a razer keyboard, and their mouse and mouse pads all in one set up.
