This is a fantastic keyboard -- the build quality is exceptional and unparalleled, and the ergonomics are perfect. I've never owned or used a keyboard this nice -- it was worth every penny.
UPDATE: Unfortunately, I experienced a problem and had to return the keyboard for a replacement. Specifically, the Cherry MX switch beneath the plus sign on the number pad crumbled and died. That's a bummer -- a defective switch. Hopefully, my replacement will be better. As a result of this problem, I'm docking the keyboard by one star.
SECOND UPDATE -- I'm now docking my rating again, from four stars to two, and I can no longer recommend this product. After less than 5 months of use of the replacement keyboard I received, I am experiencing extreme "keyboard chatter," in which, if you press a key once, the character repeats several times, including with the D, F, K, and up and down arrow keys. After doing a search on Google, I learned that this is a common problem with Corsair's mechanical keyboards. I have reached out to Corsair's technical support, and hopefully, will be able to obtain a warranty replacement, but this keyboard, overall, has been a real drag, and not at all worth what it cost. Before this, I'd used a Microsoft multimedia keyboard that I liked so much, I kept it and continued using it for more than 15 years, and never had a single problem with it -- and it was cheap. This keyboard cost me over 180 dollars, and while I was excited about using a mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX switches, my experience has not been good, and if I had to do it all over again, I never would've purchased this product. Since 2 of the keyboards have failed for me, I'm not at all confident that whatever warranty replacement I get will last very long either. My advice -- avoid this keyboard at all cost.
