    "This is a great mechanical keybard for gamers. Though perhaps considered entry level, this would be good for most people. This uses the Cherry MX switches which provide that low resistance that gamers love."

    "Wow, apparently I haven't been spending nearly enough money on my keyboards! Maybe I just don't know what I've been missing. Such is the modern age of buying almost anything these days ... so many choices to wade through and try to decide what really matters."

    "As a programmer, my keyboard is very important for what I do. I looked around at many different keyboards before deciding on this one, and I am glad I did. The quality is great. The only problem is that my letter seem to be fading pretty quickly, as I do use the keyboard very often."
