    "This keyboard is great if you're just needing it to type, but if you are needing it to perform anything else, keep looking. It will not be beneficial with coding, which is what I was needing."

    "While the suggestion is great for gaming it doesn't have any features specific for coding. That being said, the description highlights how easy this is to use and comfortable it is to type on and how durable the keyboard is. I think this would therefore be a great keyboard to be used for coding as well as gaming and I am super happy with this suggestion."

    "Okay so honeslty I have not had this for very long and I am already in love with it. This is my first experience with a mechanical keyboard other than messing ones on display in stores and after messing with the keys on a display model I decided to buy this and I am very happy with my decision. First off I am used to the plain old $25 membrane keyboard that you can go pick up at Walmart and use with ease but after using this, it will be hard to go back. Yes it is that good."

    "I used one of these for a few months, back when the only keyswitch options were green and clear. I got the clears, but was unhappy with the strong actuation force. They were useable, but not comfortable for me. The other major issue I had was that the DIP switches can't be used to turn the Capslock key into an extra Esc key. I've got no use for an extra Ctrl key in Vim. I ended up re-selling it to replace it with a Filco Majestouch-2 with cherry mx browns that I'm much happier with. Now that the CODE is offered with brown keyswitches, I'd buy one in a heartbeat if only I could get one that could replace capslock with escape."
