A, London Scientist, Chemist.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Comfortable premium quality keyboard with all the expected features and a good ergonomic design one would take as granted for the cost. It is also aesthetically pleasing. The build quality is really quite good good, but not the best. It brings all the advantages of a mechanical keyboard. The physical customization (i.e. position of the board) is nothing special. The cables are great and look like they can take some punishment.

I would buy it again.
Bad points:
Still very expensive, but not outrageously so - However it is definitely worth looking into what you want and need out of this board before you buy it. While everything is very solid, weighted; well and soundly assembled, the matte finish on the keys has a minor tendency towards scratching ever so slightly however. The user software is actually not as good as would be expected from the price. Finally, the rubber feet on the board are OK, but if you have a tendency to lean then expect to slip every now and then.

David, Mansfield

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This being my first mechanical keyboard i was worried whether the MX Red switches would be to my liking - They are. They may be too sensitive for some people but I have found them to be a pleasure to use (if a little unforgiving.) My typing has greatly improved even in the couple of weeks i've had it.
The backlight on the keyboard is good. The dimmer and volume wheels work perfectly and theres a really nice look to the layout of the board.
The USB 3.0 passthrough works well. Testing it with my USB 3.0 pendrive gave the correct speed so there's no slow down.
Bad points:
Some keys (such as Caps Lock) have dim edges where the backlight is positioned.
Sometimes when hitting a key there's an audible 'spring' sound. Maybe it's just me hitting the keys too hard. But just something to be aware of in case this may irritate.
The USB 3 and audio jack plugs may be in an annoying position for some (for right handed mouse users).
Spacebar feels a little tacky compared to the rest of the keys.

Oliver,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Build quality, solidity, functionality, a good balance between features, price and usability. Simple functional aesthetics.
Bad points:
Personally, Cherry MX Red is very sensitive and needed to adjust typing style. Maybe would have preferred MX Balck but risk sore fingers. Wish the elevation legs can be locked in place to allow for sliding forward and backward on table. As it is now every time I slide the keyboard forward, the keyboard legs annoyingly collapses. Every. Single. Time. Maybe I'll jury rig something....
