The keys are kind of scrunched together so it feels weird coming from keyboard that had wider keys. Pretty sure it's going to make my carpal tunnel way worse than it already is should I ever have to write up a paper or something. The key feel is definitely different because there's tactile feedback when the key is actually pressed down. That's definitely something that the rubber dome and even my Thinkpad keyboards didn't do. I've been used to rubber domes that I've had to bash to get it to register a key so this is certainly a change.

Razer also implemented the one feature that I like that was the deal breaker for every single one of their keyboards prior: the ability to turn off that stupid blue logo. Oh man, I was so pissed when I updated the firmware to 1.05 and it turned on the logo. Felt like it was burning a hole in my eyes until I spotted a brightness button. "Wait a minute, did that just get darker? Let's hit it again! Gasp! One more! Oh em gee, it's actually turned off. YESSSS!"

This keyboard is really loud and I'm not sure I like it for typing. If I didn't have closed headphones, I'd definitely go insane.

Hmm. Definitely prefer the quietness of my scissor-switch Logitech Illuminated. Key feel is alright but this keyboard makes me want to hurt someone whenever I type something. I certainly see that it is a high quality keyboard but for what it's worth, it's still a keyboard. In games, I'm very distracted by the noise of the keys themselves that I'm afraid it'll wake people up in the house or something. Definitely not keeping this thing. Maybe one day, I'll try a Cherry MX Brown board but I don't think they'll ever come close to the low-profile of scissor-switch keys.

These aren't really meant to be low-profile, if you mean the travel distance. However, they definitely don't require that much force to actuate, so it really shouldn't be an issue. You may just be bottoming out, as you haven't adjusted to it. If sound is really a problem, then you may well want to look into a board with brown switches. Although, I bet that if you were in a setting where noise was not an issue, you would enjoy the click of the blues a bit more. It is rather satisfying.

The deal is back and I ended up convincing one of my co-workers to buy one because I actually ended up buying another one after I returned the first one. I'm using it in my office for programming and writing reports/designs. So far so good.

I have one, my first mech keyboard (excluding the really old one's from the 90's), it's been working great for over a month now. Definitely grab this for $60 if you're looking for a budget mechanical keyboard.
