I do not think the lack of a braided cable is a con. Perhaps for a mouse, yes, but not for a keyboard.

Just what i was thinking, like if you used the under part y=to tuch the cable in it would stay their much better than if it was braided all so braided might end as one big mess and it would no longer fit in the groove.

90% Really ?, you had 6 plus things to say about it and 3 negative things which to me makes it more like a 60%, although still going disagree about the cable so 70%.


Are all the key fully programmable ?.

Con-The software was flagged as a virus when I tried to install it in Windows 10

That's more of a con against the reviewer's AV software ( ie a false positive). Unless other AV software flags it as a virus I don't see that as a con.

I've had this keyboard for several months now. Installed it on a Win7 machine and had no issues with any AV flagging it so i have to agree with morphy, it's a con against the reviewer's AV software, not the keyboard, which is great.

I dont like braided cables anywhere: dirtier and faster old than plain plastic cables. it is just placebo for "esports" (whatever that is)

A bit more info about the false virus file name etc would be kinky :)

It's an interesting keyboard, but I don't like the Kahil switches. It's clicky type, so not many people will like it, it is a little too noisy.

braided cables looks pretty good but yes if its dirty its kinda harder to clean it up
but in the name of looks many brands use that

I agree with the reviewer. The keyboard is cheaper than its cherry MX-using counterparts, so the cost savings are passed to the customer.

The biggest con is the uneven lighting. The top of the key getting more light than the bottom drives me crazy and I'd never own one of these (again).

Sorry folks, only just got around to replying to some of the Q's

The "virus" was detected on a brand new copy of windows 10 that I used on my test bench, no third party AV was used. There wasn't really much information on it but Thermaltake have mentioned to me that they are going to be following it up.

All keys, Bar windows and FN keys, can be programmed via the software when the keyboard is in game mode, but the changes do not affect normal mode (to change to game mode you just press the windows lock key). I shall add this to the review as I do seem to have missed it out - Thanks!

The switch is not "Kalih", but "Kailh"
Of course, you are correct. Thanks for spotting the mistake! I thought it was going to be hard to find which time I made the typo.... but I did it every time!! ooops!
