Amazingly clicky key action makes typing a joy!
I can't believe i waited so long to get a real mechanical keyboard. This thing is a blast to type on! I do like the blue backlighting on the keys, but even at the lowest setting it is extremely bright! Like, bother your eyes in a dark room bright. I guess that might appeal to a definite "gamer" demographic, but i find it a bit off-putting. I'm not deducting a star for that though, as rosewill offer easy on/off/mode switching of the backlight with keyboard split. Chose this over the das keyboard professional 4 on the recommendation of a co-worker. Although the media controls and usb hub functionality of the das keyboard were appealing, after using this keyboard for a week i have no regrets. I popped off a cap to make sure there were real cherry mx blues underneath, and there are! I work from home, so noise is not an issue, but i would definitely be self-conscious about using this in an office environment. My co-worker got the mx brown variant, which is supposed to be "quiet", and even that is pretty loud if you're sitting next to them.The only gaming i do on this is kerbal space program, so i can't comment on n-key rollover or nanosecond input lag response. But for general office work, if you do a lot of typing, do your hands a favor and go mechanical!
