Well after some hours of typing around and playing some SC2 I can honestly say I am in love It is my first keyboard so I can't give a solid comparison versus other switches but these do it for me, that is until I get another mech board lol. The switches are a little stiffer but I guess I will get used to that. I did notice that I don't have to press the buttons all the way through. I guess they activate halfway through. When my brother heard me typing, he thought I was on blue switches. It took me taking out another key to prove to him they were clear. They almost sound like blues except not as loud.

Lol, you do realize that you can unscrew the screws on the back and the faceplate just pops off, right?

Everything else stays attached safe and secure... Once there simply pull the keys off (they come off with little effort compared to with it on, which is near impossible)

I had to disassemble to change from PS/2 to USB when I got my laptop.

It also makes cleaning under the keys stupidly easy.. The front is literally just a plastic frame that comes off very easily and gives you full access to around / under the keys.

I think I might take some pics and make a post or something tomorrow. Was tempted to when I originally took it apart but I didn't because I wanted to see if my ps/2 -> usb worked (it did! <3)

Also its probably worth noting that I've been stuffing this keyboard in a backpack with my laptop for the past 2-3 months multiple times a week (3-4) and it still looks like the day I got it. All in all I *THINK* its around 6-8 months old. VERY Durable keyboard. The last you'll ever need

Ah screw it I found a pair of little tweezers around my house that are pretty small, yet perfect size to fit in and remove the keys no problem.
It is a pretty heavy board no doubt and the construction of it is pretty solid.

Oh and yes X3NIA post some pics. Let me see how your board looks.

Alright another thread has brought up the point that the ICE is supposed to be the blue version that you have, and the FROST is supposed to be white.

Did you order the frost and get blue? Where did you order from?

I ordered from Deck's website. Actually I did go for the ICE edition not FROST. I will correct my initial paragraph. Its so confusing lol, if anything frost should be the one I have and ICE should be the one they have with the more white lighting. Thanks for catching that though.

Well, if you think about it, frost is always white. Ice can look blue though

Thanks to this forum and the geekhack forum I narrowed by choice. Today I received my Legend 105 with the Cherry Clears from the brown santa about 30 minutes ago! I love this keyboard best I ever had and quite a jump from the Microsoft Razer Reclusa I was using. Glad I picked to get this keyboard. It is definitely not passed off well in pictures on the web, it looks so much better in person.

Very heavy, sits well on a desk, and the keys feel just right. Haven't gamed with it yet but I imagine it will perform very well. Still getting used to the keys as it's a big departure from membrane boards, and I know the switches will start to loosen up just a bit in a few days of typing but so far extremely pleased.
