Received the keyboard very quickly after I ordered it. Well packaged.
This is my first Cherry MX Red switch keyboard. I own keyboards with the brown and black switches.
First of all, I really enjoy the red switches with the low actuation pressure. Secondly, the LED lights are very pretty. Green is cool, but kind of bright at most of the brightness settings. Lowest brightness is the most agreeable in low-light conditions. The 'gaming mode' with ESC, WASD cluster, and direction arrows lit up is ok, but I don't use it. The 'breathing' mode spends most of the time in the bright part. Having messed with this effect myself using microcontrollers, I suspect they didn't optimize the algorithm to get a nicer breathing effect - however, I suspect they'd have to change the settings for each LED color.
Overall, I am pleased with my purchase - the Race 75% is a very nice compact layout keyboard with backlighting. The price on this website is very fair, and they actually shipped what they are selling on their website, which isn't true of some other online keyboard vendors.
