It looks fine (I was expecting the shell to be black, but its actually a kind of silver). The backlighting looks quite good.
Unfortunately, I hate the feel. It seems to require so much effort to press a key down, especially with my pinkies/ring fingers. I was planning on going for the a keyboard with browns, but I thought a 10g different in actuation force wouldn't make much of a difference. It also feels kind of mushy and imprecise. And for some reason the spacebar is about 2-3mm lower down than the rest of the keys on the row.
I don't know if this feel gets better over time, but at the moment I feel I just wasted $200 on a keyboard that feels worse than my cheapo rubber dome keyboard.
If you give that keyboard 1 or 2 weeks you'll change your tune after you go back to the rubber dome.
And it's impossible to waste
$200 on a Deck. As long as you purchased it directly from Deck you can return it within 30 days for a refund because they are awesome like that (After 30 days they may require a 20% restocking fee).
