    "Nice cherry MX switches. I love the feel of the browns. Very solid at the price point and great for a first mechanical keyboard. RGB would be nice but red LED is better than no LED. Unfortunately the pass through isn't a true pass through and using it requires a second USB cable going from the keyboard to the PC. Overall a nice starter or budget friendly mechanical keyboard. "

    "Not a true mechanical keyboard but a mech-membrane hybrid though that isn't necessarily a bad thing. It does dampen some of that trademark mechanical keyboard "click." Very good mechanical keyboard for beginners at a very reasonable price point especially for being as feature rich as this keyboard is. Its hard to find a quality mechanical keyboard with RGB lighting under $100. The keycaps are nice though they are domed which I know some touch typists don't like but I prefer. Standard format instead of the typical 10-keyless format many are used to so size could be an issue. Overall very nice for the price and great to start out with. "

    "Logitech has been in the keyboard game for a while and is well know in the non-mechanical keyboard industry. Unfortunately their legendary quality and craftsmanship doesn't carry over with this keyboard. It really wants to be a top of the line mechanical keyboard and it looks great from the outside but it kind of falls flat. The switches don't feel as good as name brand switches and it doesn't have the same quality of material as other top mechanical keyboard manufacturers. You can do a lot better for the price. "

    "Nothing fancy here but it gets the job done. Standard 110 key keyboard and no RGB lighting but what it lacks in features it makes up for it in quality and performance. It performs much better than other more feature rich keyboards at the same price point. Quality MX Cherry Reds which are a joy to use for both gaming and general purpose use. It uses standard keycaps as well which means you can easily swap it out for custom keycaps and its very easy to take down and clean. Overall very pleased with this keyboard and I see it lasting a long time. Its my go to keyboard to carry with me when I don't want to bring a more expensive keyboard out of the house. "

    "One of the best mechanical keyboards I have used. Coming from MX Cherry browns I was a bit reticent to try the razor switches but I was very pleased with the results and was easy to get used to. It could use a few more hot keys for MMO gaming but overall I really enjoy it. Going tenkey less was a bit hard to get the hang of. Its not necessary for gaming but if you are used to using one keyboard for both gaming and general use it might pose a challenge. The color options are very nice and the quality and craftsmanship are top notch especially for the price. "

    "Finally a niche market for typists who are left handed! This great keyboard offers a one of a kind left hand 10key which is yet to be found on any other manufacturer. You do end up paying more for this feature as it is less common, however you get that fullsize number pad on the left side which can be a game changer for left handed typists. Combine that with RGB and cherry-style blue keys, and you have a winning combination!"

    "I think the pros of using this keyboard is that it is easy to carry around, battery last long based on daily use. However, I don't really think this keyboard will be good for mechanical gaming. It is a little bit too small and the keys are too tight together for gaming purpose. It doesn't have lights under the keys either. It is more for tablets rather than for mechanical gaming!"
