Ultra low latency USB connectors and an integrated two port USB 3.0 hub ensure that the MECH and connected peripherals all operate at their full potential. A high-grade braided cable ensures that the keyboard and connected peripherals maintain a stable link to your PC. Utilizing its ultra fast processor and Super Speed USB 3.0 ports, MECH is capable of 64 KRO or activating and registering the actions of up to 64 keys simultaneously.

Full LED backlighting awaits you on the MECH with three modes of operation and five brightness levels. With this, MECH keys will be visible while gaming in nearly any lighting level.

Built with a unique removable and customizable aluminum plate, MECH is the ultimate gamer's mechanical keyboard. Whether it is providing that extra look of professionalism to your eSports team or matching your keyboard to your own style, MECH makes it simple to do. The included premium aluminum plate can be removed and replaced via a few screws.

Looks like something out of a Futuristic 80's Movie.

Gimmick.

This helps the MECH take full advantage of its ability respond at high speeds to in game actions and record and edit not only macro keys, but profiles as well.
Nothing revolutionary.

MECH is equipped with the ability to store 5 easily accessible profiles while making up to 75 total macros available for multiple gaming needs.
75? 75? Who the hell needs that many. Is this a technology demonstrator or a product?

Further customize your MECH by selecting from amongst the highest grade Cherry MX Mechanical switches. MECH integrates the most popular Blue, Red, or Brown switches into its different models and each switch is extremely durable and rated for a minimum of 50 million presses.
Choosing your switch is customization? Lol.

You can get a mechanical keyboard for ~60-80$ excluding tax and shipping. It's worth it.

They should have made it a bit bigger. People only use their desk for gaming nowadays anyway.

No media keys. The shape also seems to be needlessly large with huge empty areas purely for the sake of having that crazy shape, the and that wrist-west makes absolutely no sense. The aluminum plate looks solid but doesn't really make up for it's overall tacky look.

Sorry if I seem to be hating on Logitech here, they still make the best mice as far as I'm concerned and their Logitech G110/G510 keyboards were extremely popular. But in the realm of mechanical gaming keyboards they were completely beaten to the punch by Corsair!
Corsair K70 offers a sexy aluminum body (black or silver), contoured & textured WASD/1-5 keys, media buttons + volume wheel, great wrist-rest, no whacky shapes, superb build quality, etc and for $130 that's hard to beat.

I don't believe anyone here will accuse you of hating on Logitech for bashing this CM Storm board.

You hold the "Fn" key and the media keys are the Function keys.
