Carl, Leeds

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This is the best looking keyboard on the market IMO.
The back lit keys are the brightest I've seen.
The noise of the mechanical keys is very satisfying and the response is perfect for gaming.
Build quality is excellent.
Bad points:
The non-mechanical keys don't light up as bright as the mechanical ones, I was surprised by this as all the pictures I've seen show all the keys lit the same. I'm not just talking about the G keys I mean all the F keys and the DEL,HOME,END etc... Disappointing, but still a great looking keyboard.

Shaun, Yorkshire Nothing

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
This is almost a 10 out of 10 keyboard. I love the design, I have no problem with it not all being cherry switches. See below.
Bad points:
But I do have a major problem with the fact that I have had to return the keyboard twice due to faulty back lighting. For a premium price I do not expect such basic faults as dodgy lights. There is much to love about this keyboard, when it works. But I have found that it doesn't work.

Confirmed purchaser

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Well built. Good solid cable. High quality finish on wrist rest. Backlighting is clear and looks good. Macro keys can record any combination of key presses creating useful shortcuts, not just in games too.
Bad points:
Expensive for a keyboard but does feel like it will last forever. Not all keys are mechanical.

engelbert, free as the breeze

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
bought this when it was on offer and its an excellent keyboard, not a brand i would have associated with gaming keyboards my previous was a logitech g19 but its every bit as good to use. macro keys work perfectly, keyboard drivers need downloaded directly from there site. A+
Bad points:
mine was missing a thumb screw to hold the palm rest in place, as yet my requests to corsair to supply one have gone unanswered, at some point i will probably source one some where
