Well built. Love the flat black stealthy finish. Have had Cherry browns in a previous keyboard. Love them too.

Very satisfied.

I've owned this (Max Keyboard Nighthawk X8 with Cherry MX Brown switches) for 5 months and it's always been rock solid.

The blue LEDs have not gone out. They're beautiful.

The switches are still as responsive now as they were 5 months ago, despite very heavy daily use. Due to having ordered O-ring installation with the keyboard, they make next to no noise, while giving me excellent tactile feedback and registering every single keystroke. I can't say that about many other keyboards I've used.

I tied up a large portion of the cable for my mouse to shorten it, and have it on one of the 2 USB ports; I am also using the headphone passthrough on it. I love how useful those ports are.

Using the plastic keycap puller I got with the Christmas 2014 promotion, cleaning under the keys is very easy.

There are four minor issues, however:

1. The \| key (row 2, last key) ghosts with every other key, so, for example, typing 'w' while \ is still pressed (but \'s auto-repeat delay has not yet passed) will yield \w\; typing W (with Shift) yields \|W or \|W||.

2. The Space and Backspace keys sometimes miss me releasing them, so they'll keep on being repeated indefinitely until I press and release the same key again. For spaces, backspacing the extra spaces is enough, but for backspaces, an entire line, paragraph or document may end up being erased.

3. Sometimes, the BIOS will not recognise me pressing the Del key. A paper insert in the box will tell you about this.

4. Under Linux, you may find that the Lock indicators (Num, Caps, Scroll) fail to activate.

Best there is. Have owned over a year, NOT ONE LED OUT, other companies get constant complaints on reviews about LEDs going out after just months. They use premium LEDs. I changed a lot of them to my custom needs, they didn't offer custom then, but not one of them went out either. Says a lot about the durability of the build. I took it apart about twenty times to change the leds colors to meet my needs with different games. I use the heck out of this prob as much or more than a coder. My seven year old grandson also uses the keyboard to game and he really uses it robustly, heh.

Don't hesitate, just figure out which one you want, you have found the best place to buy, the guys here are terrific to support your choosing options. Plus they have accessories to match the boards.

Fits like a glove. I will never own other, and I'm very picky.

I've had this keyboard for over two years now. I left a review when I first bought it, stressing the beauty of the keyboard, the incredibly pleasing sensation of typing on it, and it's overall awesomeness. All of this is still the case, but I wanted to leave an updated review stressing one thing I've discovered about this keyboard:

THIS THING IS BUILT LIKE A FREAKING TANK. It's borderline indestructible.

Stuffing it into an already stuffed backpack? No problem.

Having it accidentally placed at the bottom of a crowded car truck? Bring it on.

Spilling an entire glass of soda or even milk directly onto/into it on multiple occasions? Not even an issue. (and cleaning it up was as easy as popping the keys off and wiping it down while watching Hulu).

Honestly, it's like a freaking honeybadger. It doesn't even care. This thing will take whatever you throw at it (probably literally) and it will emerge unscratched. Quite frankly, it's remarkable.

So if you're a slob who ends up ruining most things on your desk, I guess this is for you. DO IT.

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!
