Thanks in advance.
You mean wait until Coolermaster comes out with its Ione made MX red board. I think there will be more than just the Coolermaster ones. Ione seem to be desperate to jump in with anyone who can help out their rep. I have pictures of there unbranded board up in my report as a "teaser" and lots of pictures of the CM branded one.
HOWEVER: Coolermaster could not tell me when the reds will ship and there was some thought that they would not ship in North America. USA will get blacks first and Europe get blue, is what I gathered from their cryptic remarks to my digging.

The blue and yellow, quite gross - even though them people in gh love them yellow.
I am hoping they offer some of the blue'n yellow keys as replacements, black with some yellow asdw and Esc would look nicer I think. The small Dpad needs to be on the track to be stable, so it can hang off a bit, but not too much. If you watch you can hear where it starts to click, that's about how much it can hang off. Also it wont go too far to the right. It does have a very thin usb cable that gets caught when you flip it up then back. They are going to work on that after I pointed it out to him. The longer USB cables are nice and thick. I forgot to mention that there is some back lighting on the a/b keys and the volume knob. They are looking at a price point of near the $140US mark. I think they will have to come down just a big if they want to sell but if the extra features appeal to you its another option.
