I got this keyboard for Christmas and it is great. It is my first mechanical keyboard so I cannot compare it to anything besides a laptop and cheap desktop keyboards. It is very responsive, yet firm enough that I know I'm typing what I need to. As an accounting/finance student the number pad is great. Feels very natural. While it may be more expensive than some CM boards it is definitely worth the price (especially on sale). The full keyboard glow is nice and is a big draw for me as I hate the types that only backlight the wasd keys. The varying levels are useful too, but I usually stick with the lowest setting. Overall, if you're on the fence, go for it.

So i've been using this keyboard for a few months now, and i love it. At first, i wasn't sure if i should go with the cherry or brown keys. I am super glad i went with brown. This keyboard has the feel and size of an old school keyboard. Very pleased all around.

This is my first mechanical keyboard since using the IBM M Model keyboard way back when.
Build quality, functionality, feel and customization, this is hand down one of the best keyboards I have ever owned coming from Logitech, Razer and Steelseries.

Love this keyboard. It is my first mechanical keyboard and I find myself enjoying the typing experience so much that I will go out of my way to use my home machine where it resides. The MX Browns give you the response of the MX Blues without the clicking which is nice in close quarters with my permanent roommate. The LEDs look great and are nice at night to help find keys you won't normally use, for the most part I am a touch typist. Having the USB ports has helped a lot already with charging my wireless mouse and the audio port is very clutch if you don't have a long cable or wireless headphones. All in all, great keyboard.

I just received this keyboard in the mail today and I've been using is nonstop for the past several hours and I cannot believe how much of an improvement it is over all the rubber dome keyboards I've had in the past. The feel is absolutely amazing and I've already confirmed via a typing test that my typing speed has gone up since using this keyboard. This is my first mechanical keyboard but I could not be more impressed with the build quality and attention to detail that has gone into this by Max Keyboard. I will most likely be buying a Blackbird shortly to use for work as I'm not sure I'll be able to use a rubber dome keyboard ever again!

Great Keyboard with just enough pressure feedback to allow one to type with confidence and speed. Great overall. Love the blue led back-lighting. Highly recommended for speed typing and gaming, if that's your gig.

I can not begin to express to anyone how happy i am with this purchase.I have used a variety of other mech keyboards from ducky to razor,to CM, to corsair and i have to say that is one is by far and away one a different level of quality, comfort, and overall "it" factor. I love this keyboard and can not see myself ever using any other. Super fast with the shipping and packaging was well protected.

One of the best mecha-keyboards I've used. I have been through Leopolds, Ducky, two horribly loud Razer BlackWidows, a Steelseries MX Black, and a MX Red by Rosewill. I always keep my favorite/most comfortable to use keyboard at work, with my second favorite at home for gaming. This keyboard has recently taken the crown and appreciates many humbled expressions from my co-workers when they examine or use it.

Just audible enough to offer evidence that I'm actually working, the MX Brown switches are a pleasure to type on. The wrist pad fits almost perfectly with how my desk is set up and yes, it has a pungent synthetic scent that goes away after a week of exposure to our equally chemically-saturated atmosphere.

I will venture to say that the white backlit LED is not only elegant but sleek. The pulse setting is silly but I use it from time to time when I'm not in the office to make people think it's possessed or whatnot. My only regret is not ordering a second one because I don't plan on changing to another keyboard model/make until this one is on the fritz. Hopefully more arrive in stock.

Best keyboard I've ever used. Like other reviewers found, I needed some time to get accustomed to the firmer touch of the keyboard. After that, it was pure typing pleasure. I have since bought a second keyboard for my computer at work. The wrist pad that comes with the keyboard works well -- I highly recommend using it -- and the USB cord didn't bother me as much as I thought it would after using cordless keyboards for so many years. What impressed me most was the solid feel and construction. This thing is heavy! It doesn't slide around on the desk, the contour of the keys feel great on the fingertips, and the lighted keys allow quick access in the middle of the night without having to turn on a task light. If I could figure out how to disable the Caps Lock button, the keyboard would be perfect.

Absolutely brilliant! I ordered it about 2 days before my parents arranged a camping trip for 4 days, so I was gone when it got to my house. The UPS man even had the courtesy to hide it in my dog house so it wouldn't get wet from the rain. The keyboard itself is awesome, unlike every other keyboard I've owned. 10/10 if you have the money buy this keyboard. Even for you casuals out there.
