I initially bought the Karura Red dragon keyboard. After a week I opted to upgrade to a proper mechanical keyboard. Im running the cherry MX red switches with the red 2mm O-rings on the small keys and the blue 4mm o-rings on the larger keys, such as the enter key. With this setup the keys are super responsive and moderately quiet. The brushed metal back plate and the USB pass thru for the 2016 model is great. No complaints here, this is a quality product. Im not a fan of RGB, so the basic red led back-lit is perfect for me.

This is the best darn keyboard I've ever used. Period. My xbox friends sometimes complain about my clacking on the keyboard, but you know how whiney these dirty console peasants can be sometimes.

Best Keyboard I ever owned. This keyboard is gorgeous, is fun to type on and has great lighting features. You can enable reactive typing, have 4 lighting settings to choose from (off, low, medium, high), have one profile for keys you want to light up, media keys (Play, pause, stop, next, previous, mute, volume) and a windows key lock. The Cherry MX red switches are awesome for gaming and are way better for typing than most people let on.
Extra bonus, the red lighting totally matches with my build.

Nothing wrong with this keyboard at all, if you really want a real review, go watch a video about it, its hard to explain the amazingness of this keyboard without pictures.

This is a great responsive keyboard for gaming.
It is incredibly responsive so much that a feather-light touch will trigger a key. This is a good thing when you're playing FPS games. This is not as good when your trying to type and the slightest touch will trigger a key. When you type on this thing, you really have to hit the keys vertically.
That said, I've gotten used to it and love using it.
The reason I removed a star is because the cord on this thing is so thick and heavy it challenges the integrity of any USB port. I appreciate the sturdiness of any hardware, but there is absolutely no reason for a thick and heavy keyboard cable. It actually puts stress on the USB connection; absolutely unnecessary.
