This wonderful keyboard is built right. Quality parts, heavy, compact, with real Cherry MX switches.
Why I haven't bought it yet/might get a different kb:
Red switch version should be more readily available by now.
Keyboard case should have channels to feed the USB cable like other CM kb's. I fear the connector will wear out since the cable pulls directly on the connector.
Mechanical Gaming Keyboards should have the following:
Black/Red/etc Cherry MX Switch options. (Blues and browns are great for typing, but are slow compared to properly used linear switches)
My ideal gaming compact kb would be the existing rapid-i with Black switches and hardware based programmable keys. Throw in RGB if you want to make that segment happy. Oh and please address that connector slot.
