I picked this up here with a great discount and opted for MX Brown. I'm a programmer and researcher, so I do a lot of typing. Not a gamer at all, so didn't use for that at all.
Key shape, feel, and response is excellent.
I see a lot of complaints about the key font. While it's not the best, it doesn't bother me -- kind of reminds me of an old keyboard from the early 80's. This is actually my first mechanical KB since the mid-80's and I'm pretty happy that I bought it.
Only real complaints are:
--Key back lighting isn't even, but it's usable and I doubt it could be any better given PTB keys. Front-printed media legends are not lit at all. It would be nice. Minimal bottom bleed, which I like
--FN is not optimal as it makes accessing macro keys inconvenient, though I seldom use these
Definitely the best keyboard I've ever owned. I've had mine for almost 2 years with no sign of wear on any of the switches. All LEDs are still bright and react brilliantly. The stock keycaps do dim the lights a bit, so I am now using aftermarket caps from my Ducky Shine 3 which really show off the LED brightness.
Getting new lighting profiles isn't as friendly as most popular keyboards which have proprietary software, so you'll have to do the footwork on your own.
It's fairly heavy so not ideal for tournament play or traveling, but perfect for your battlestation.
Best keyboard I have owned. PBT keycaps are great, illumination is great with great modes. Build is quality.
