    Mechanical-like keys??

    I like the idea, but either go all the way or go home.

    As long as the feedback is good, I don't care what kind of switches it has. Model M has one kind of switches, Cherry MX other, Topre use weird capacitive mechanism, and this - I don't know, but I wouldn't call non-Cherry-MX bad just because it's not Cherry MX. I hope it's not as bad as most of regular rubber dome keyboards.

    Its the same style of switch was using Roccat... its a strange mix between mechanical switch + dome ( or similar (could not have the dome but instead contact) .. ( basically you have a little switch like on the mechanical cherry mx, but instead it press directly a dome on the motherboard of the keyboard )..

    It should be better of dome, and scissor keyboard, but its not so much of a difference.

    Pricing is a bit off. Should be cheaper.

    Well i've being using my ms sidewinder x6 since i bought it back in 2008 and it still works like it was new, but for a genius product that keyboard looks ok, priced similar to my x6 but i like my detachable num pad.

    most gaming keyboards can disable windows buttons. and tbh, I really can't remember the last time I've pressed the windows button while gaming. Maybe once since they starting putting them on keyboards. If that. Really can't remember.

    Anyway, Phaze wasn't being rude.
