I love this little keyboard! It's my first mechanical, and now I definitely want another one for at work.
Programmable, so all my required functions are close at hand.
Easy to transport.
Very sturdy build quality (heavy!).
Cherry MX clears feel great to type on.
Mine was missing the 'Fn' keycap (has an extra 'Ctrl' keycap there instead).
The legends are wearing off of the PBT keycaps after only two weeks of use.
Backspace feels loose and makes a metallic clacking/pinging sound.
Sometimes it doesn't work when my PC wakes from sleep, so I have to unplug it and plug it back in.
The reason I rate it a 4 is because of my experience with Vortex' customer service in trying to get an 'Fn' keycap. In short, they did not offer to send a replacement, and were inconsistent in responding to my support inquiry.
Just got my board in the mail! It arrived quickly and well packaged in perfect condition. This keyboard is incredible. If you haven't ever typed on clears then you're in for a real treat, if you have then you know what to look forward to. This keyboard is very high quality, great looking, and easy to use. The aluminum case has a very nice weight to it and keeps to board firmly planted to the desk surface. Can't recommend this board enough. Get one!

Price is amazing for Aluminum case with PBT caps
Only real cons that exist are
Does not include PS/2 Adapter
Lettering is not doubleshot so will eventually fade on Keycaps
