Well here it is.
It looks good, but damn, that price.

Why would you choose this over the competition?
Sure it has back-lighting, but is that really worth an extra 50 above the well established Steelseries 7G?

Looks nice, now all i have to do is see pictures from anyone else but the manufacturer. Then I will know it looks like it does in the picture with the lights on and the lights on. Just concerned about usual false "really dim outside of pitch darkness when you get it" back lit advertizement. Can check multilevel light off my list thats good to hear. Only 6 keys and USB 2.0 points to a good just what u need price..... you would think it would But with Sidewinder X4 at the price it is and reviews its gotten, and a good second choice in Logitech's offering all signs point to monix being a no for me.

"The Swedish manufacturer" doesn't work anymore decent price does lol

Wanted to buy it, saw that 1$ = 1 euro..... no thanks.
I'll stick with someone who doesn't shaft their potential customers.

Hmm, the keyboard is nice (even though I prefer Blue over Green) but the price is just too much. BlackWidow Ultimate and 7G cost an arm and a leg but this is just too much.

Try HHP2 or Realforce over 200 bucks! but well worth it, this I'm not so sure as gamers don't need a full size keyboard and if you're budget conscious gamer and looking for good quality space saving try a Tenkeyless, but once you go mechanical other keyboards just feel like shit.

It is a little pricey. I paid less for my Deck Legend. Not much less. Looks good though and since it is a mech board it'll be around for many years. Think of it as an investment. Although with that high price and many other mech boards going for less, this will be a hard sell.

[quote="..'Ant'.., post: 2257947"]Its very pricey similar to the Razer Black Widow Ultimate.[/quote]Very similar. yet the Widow does alot more. Dont use macros so I didnt get that one. I think it is really cool that more of these boards are now backlit. But unless this board has keys that dont rub off that price is way to high.
