Haven't had a mechanical keyboard prior to this one, so I am a little biased. I went with this particular model due to its utilitarian looks and features. My build is green and black, so aesthetically it matches it perfectly. It's very solid, all keys respond very well and feel fantastic. I play with the keyboard on my lap and it's not too heavy, kind of perfect, really, enough to feel it but not enough to constrict blood vessels.

I am taking 1 star off for the following reasons:

Razer Synapse is supposed to track all sorts of stats but for some reason it doesn't provide any for my (Razer) keyboard and mouse. It could very well be something I haven't set-up or done. I don't really need these features.

The plastic back while feels super solid up front around the space bar key, in the back at the very edges it makes some plastic-y sound if you apply pressure onto it. It's not weak or poorly installed by any means but I would prefer the same feel along the entire surface. Since it's made for a desk and not a human lap--I am just nitpicking. My house will probably loose its roof before that back falls off, just sayin'.

Lastly, the second row of character on keys is not illuminated (such as on F keys). I know them all by heart by now, so it's not a game-changer.. But since it's a 100 dollar keyboard--I gotta mention this.
