It all looked very promising... until I saw that the QWERTZ layout had a shortened left Shift key with a Larger than/Smaller than key next to it.
I hope the QWERTY version does not have this...

That's a standard European layout...
I'm sure the US one will be just as you're used to it...

This looks pretty good, all until I saw "4 cherry MX colors available".

Is the marketing team confused? It isn't the colors that are important, it is what the color represents.

The marketing team needs to do a bit more research on what cherry MX switches are.

Thanks, but I remember one of the Corsair keyboards came with a short Shift key on the QWERTY (International) version in Europe. That was what got me worried ;)

Looks promising although wish it was not so big. Although tempted to pick one up later this year.

I believe it's saying the type \ color of switch and not the same switch and different colors lol..

Not from what they insinuate in the video. The marketing team obviously think the switch colors are cosmetic. The video should have said 4 cherry MX switches available.

Try listening to the switches in the video which pretty much says every thing.

Hahahahahaha man that was a good laugh, that whole video had me laughing. The whole story was so cheesy, but I must say this keybaord does look nice I really like that you can have what ever keys light up. I would say this will be $150+

Also they know what they're talking about for the keys.

Oh ok, so now they just release their mechanical keyboards after several years of using crappy rubber domes. Way to go for their r&d team

Looks promising.
Not a fan of the extra plastic though but with the reputation Roccat have so far I am sure it will be a decent product at a reasonable price....REASONABLE price huh Razer?
