Your description of Cherry MX switches is incorrect.

Red switches have no click and are easily pressed.

Black switches are like reds but harder to press. THERE IS NO CLICK. They make the exact same noise as Reds.

Brown switches have no click but do have tactile feedback, unlike red and black. They are slightly louder.

Blue switches are the only ones that genuinely have a click. They are much louder than all the alternatives.

I should have said blue and brown not blue and black. Thanks for the feedback.

Awesome keyboard except the placement of the macro keys is horrible.

I can't agree enough...

I've kept a hold of my rapidly aging Logitech G15 keyboard (the blue original, and typing with it right now) precisely because of it's macro key quantity of 18 and three "macro profiles" per key, and most especially because of their placement...

My mouse hand has little use for macros, it's for pointing... So my "commands" are all done with the left hand, and as such things need to be near by for a quick hit, and putting the macro keys even further out of reach than the Function Keys row, is an exceedingly questionable design choice...

For those that like it, good gaming and God bless, but I'm going to be going the opposite direction and get a K90 in the not too distant future, it's like the G15 with mechanical keys, although the macro keys aren't mechanical, which means nothing to me since it's not a primary key I'm continually typing on...

Really, it's placement I find more important than whether or not the macro keys are mechanical or dome.

Exactly. Having the macro keys above the already distant function keys makes them useless.

Once you get rid of the numpad you'll never go back.

That's why I put it as the negative header's tagline.

I could've sworn there was another movie title in the positives section.

I never saw Django and I don't really trust "professional" movie critics. Is it any good?

There was a different title for the postive header, but it was to long for the website and cut off some of postive columns description, so we changed it. 

The original title to the positive header was The Good the Bad and the Ugly.

Django is pretty good if you like Tarantino films; I enjoyed it, but it somewhat long as its a 3 hour movie.

Wow, looks like a pretty awesome keyboard. I love how USB 3.0 pass-throughs are included on it. Too bad my Corsair K60 doesn't. :(
