Pros...

This is a beast. Such a pleasure to game with, keys feel amazing to type with and are extremely responsive. Although limited, the backlit LEDs work well (love the breathing effect). Build quality is solid and overall very highly recommended.

Cons...

Lack of software interface and macro keys and high price.
