It seems to exceed the durability of other mech keyboards as well as performing better. Not sure about long term durability but people on geekhack thinks it'd be good for 100M actuations. The layout is standard too so I should be able to use my Vortex PBTs on it. The high actuation point and MX profile will let me have the low travel, fast rebound I want and 90A o-rings should be able to provide enough tactile feedback. The keyboard apparently is also on sale atm. So its really 140$ price increased again.. looks like I'll just have to wait O_o

Please do yourself a favor and don't waste your money on that crap.

Keep in mind that the newer models, unlike the older ones, have a plastic top-layer to give additional water protection to the switches. I'm not sure how this will interact with O-rings, and the feel (if you bottom out) will be affected; on the other hand, the additional height may help in your project of reducing travel. Not to mention the benefit of having more protection-- I, for one, would gladly sacrifice a little bit of "feel" for the luxury of not having to worry too much about where my coffee/soda/ramen is relative to my keyboard.

P.S. Numbers of activations for switches are bull****. It doesn't reflect the differences that switches have in their resistance to dirt, debris, excessive force, force in unexpected directions, etc. Also, many companies will make the number up, or copy it from another company. Cherry themselves have been known to change the number (at least for switches other than MX Black) with no change in the actual switch.
It is an optical switch so it shouldn't have any change in feels besides from the spring which I could replace to tune to my liking. These should be smoother than Gateron Clears.
Also how trust worthy is jd?

Hm the site doesn't allow me to check out my cart for some reason.

You might have better luck convincing him not to buy a product if you cited some actual arguments against it as opposed to just saying "no don't do it because I don't want you to do it".

Just saying, right now your reasoning is about as solid as me telling Jixr that he is wasting money on Cherry MX switches because they are bad and he shouldn't do it any more.
