Vlad, Glasgow Programmer, Geek, Gamer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
- The keys feel really nice and if you don't like mechanical keyboards this is probably the best you're going to get.
- There are some shades (such as cyan or green) that make it look stunning.
- The layout allows you to clean the keyboard by simply blowing into it.
- The G keys are extremely helpful.
- You can switch between 3 profiles using the M keys. This allows you to have 3 modes, including 3 color settings (e.g. M1 - normal use, M2 - programming, M3 - Photoshop).
Bad points:
- Software is quite bad. You can get everything working as you want eventually but you'll have to fiddle with it much longer than you'd expect.
- The F keys are closer to the digits row than you'd expect and you'll sometimes press F11 / F12 instead of backspace.
- The multimedia keys are annoyingly sinked in comparison to the rest.
- The lights for the locks (e.g. num lock) are annoyingly brighter than the rest of the keyboard, especially at night.
