Okay, it's official... Keyboards are officially now overkill... this keyboard has better hardware specs than my LG 800c tracfone...

It looks awesome, but do they provide more than just an SDK? I'd want documentation on the communication protocols, programming info for the on-board CPU and how to write to the flash.

Not everyone uses Windows you know.

Just bought the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2013 a couple months back to replace an aging (but awesome), Logitech G15, and except for the Razer Synapse drivers, I've been very happy with it.

But NOW Roccat comes along and introduces the perfect keyboard I've been looking for...DAMN YOU ROCCAT!!!! Take my money...but don't look at me. ^_^

LoL, why would you buy a Razer product in the first place? Their mech keys are garbage. If you wanted a real gaming mech keyboard CM Storm Trigger should have been your choice.

Now that Roccat has come out with programmable back-lit keys I'm looking forward to this, not everyone games on WASD.

I could go into a great detail, what led me to my purchase decision, or I could easily answer with, to each his own.

I'm very happy with my keyboard & was moreless just attempting humour.

If you think Irene`s story is surprising..., a month back my brother in-law basically easily made $7194 just sitting there sixteen hours a week from there apartment and the're neighbor's mom`s neighbour has done this for 5 months and got a cheque for over $7194 part-time from a mac. use the advice on this site...

Keyboard looks nice but those keys just below the spacebar look to be a horrible placement. A lot of people rest their thumb there between typing spurts. Even worse is the lack of a standard backslash key but hopefully that changes as the keyboard comes to the US.

Also strange is the USB and headset ports but no direct multimedia keys for volume control and switching off the windows key. Hopefully that is controllable with the extra keys on the left. Having to use an extra function key for those features is not gamer friendly.

The individually lighted keys would make it easier to find keys needed for playing games. I think that's a brilliant idea.

Totally agree, especially playing in low-light environments sometimes the lighted keys are hard to tell apart or find the ones you need QUICKLY before you get your head blown off.

Now that logitech is finnally starting to lag a little compared to Roccat and maybe 2 razer products now They will come out with their next G19 G15 G13 and a whole new mouse line.

What kind of switch is needed for silent (or virtually silent) typing? My gaming computer is in the bedroom; needless to say, I'm not allowed to CLICK-CLICK-CLICKETY after bed time.

I've used the Logitech Illuminated Keyboards for a few years, and have been happy enough with their performance, but for the lack of N-key rollover (did I word that correctly?). They actually had it in the original version of the plank, but removed it so it wasn't competing with their more expensive gaming boards.

You should look into Cherry MX Brown or Red switches, and then add o-ring dampeners:

Well, have you considered a scissor-switch keyboard? Apparently they are very quiet and still tactile. Here's a link to one:
