First Impressions:
1: Love it.
2: The braided casing around the cord is spectacular.
3: It has a wonderful feel. Both typing and with build construction. It feels solid, and looks great.

Suggestions (By no means criticisms!):
1: Allow external power (Maybe a second USB connector, or 5v wall wart) to be applied to the USB hub on the board. I program Arduinos that can be powered off USB, but require more power than the hub can supply.
2: Have a version of the board without, or a switch, for N-key Rollover. Now before the flame war begins, let me explain. I am not a gamer, so i do not benefit from this, but I do have a 4 port KVM switch so I can control multiple systems,(Desktop, Home Server, and two machines in various states of disarray) with one monitor, keyboard and mouse. Unfortunately, with the N-key rollover, my KVM does not recognize and interpret the keyboard correctly. This forces me to keep my old board tucked in the back, so I have it when I need to switch.
Agree with the other 5 star reviews, so will not repeat. Strongly suggest reading them. This is a comfortable, easy to use board that feels great.

I would add that I purchased first the 8-key Pro kit to sample the differing Cherry MX keys. Highly recommend this before a first mechanical keyboard purchase. (Be sure to try the weak pinky of your lesser used hand, you'll be amazed what this tells you.)

Before both Sampler and Keyboard purchases, I was impressed with Customer Service for the same day (or early next day) response to several emailed pre-purchase questions. After the purchase, MAX contacted me to be sure all okay! Both the two questions I had then were also quickly addressed.
Bought this keyboard two days ago and have been very impressed, this is my first mechanical keyboard coming over from a membrane keyboard and I can definitely understand why people prefer this design. The keys are clicky and very responsive with a nice fast debounce. As someone who is both a typist and gamer this keyboard suits my needs very well. The wrist rest is an awesome added bonus as well.
The best mechanical keyboard!! Im an happy Italian now!
Thx Max
Fine product, died within a year.
Bought roughly 10 months ago, this product worked as expected and indeed seemed built like a tank (except for the suspicious audio in/out jacks next to the USB cable) but unfortunately my unit suffered a heart attack last month and refused to power up through USB power. Although it came back within an hour, I believe it has died for good today. I've contacted tech support and am looking into what they can do about this. I've looked up some reviews and it seems to be a rare, but reoccuring phenomenon where the keyboard's power dies well within the lifetime assigned to the actual keys.
Very happy about this keyboard! It is not loud for me. I used it at home and I wasn't bothered by the noise at all. But it definitely can be annoying if you are very sensitive to keyboard clicking. The quality of the keyboard is very good. You can feel it as soon as you put your fingers on it. Highly recommended if you don't mind about the noise and like to type on "real" keyboard!
One of the Best keyboards you can buy. Very well made keyboard. I've owned several mechanical keyboards and this one is the best. The keys do not wear the letters off like my other boards. Nice tactical feel and precise keystrokes. The cherry keys are a little loud but I wear headphones :-)
Great feel once updated with o-rings

I really like this keyboard. I used Northgate Omnikey 102 keyboards a long time ago, but got stuck using bare-bones membrane models for years. The Cherry MX Blues aren't quite the same, but with a .4mm o-ring under each key to reduce travel and eliminate the plastic on plastic sound of each key from bottoming out, it feels nice and solid.

I wished they made a model with the Cherry MX Greens that offer slightly more resistance to each key press. The blue LEDs under each key are a nice touch and I really like the audio pass-through on the back of the keyboard.
This is one nice keyboard. The quality is outstanding. This will be a keyboard that will last me many years to come. Its the best keyboard I have ever bought. Braided cables, adjustable LED brightness. The keys remind me of a original IBM Model M which I still have. I also like that the wrist pad is not connected to the board so I can slide it away from the board to hit my palms perfectly.

It is worth every penny, believe me. Individual lit LED on every key also. Whats also nice is the overall size of the board. The outside frame overhangs the keys just a little bit, just enough which makes the keyboard smaller than alot of them out there.
Buy it you will be glad you did. Just remember that "you get what you pay for".
This keyboard is amazing. High quality materials, smooth typing, lights up perfect. If you want a mechanical keyboard look into this brand. This one lights up blue, 3 levels with another one that pulses. I keep it on level 2, perfect to see the keys, if needed. It has Blue Cherry switches, which click nicely, if you like that, but the smoothness of the keys I think has increased my typing speed 80 to 100 percent. There was 2 problems I had that aren't major, one is it took 10 days to receive the unit, which I am using it in a business environment, and that's just to long. But, it was worth the wait.. The second problem is the keyboard lights never shut off, even if the unit goes into sleep mode. I've tried every trick they had on their site, even thinks I know about, I'm an IT person that has a considerable amount of computer knowledge. I guess what will happen is the lights might fail prematurely, not sure... But either way, the keyboard is worth it. I would buy this again in a second..
