Ah. Good that they have chosen another colour than blue for backlighting.

I like blue backlighting

Typical. I finally buy a non-backlit mechanical keyboard and it looks like someone actually brings one out that doesn't have a stupid font printed on the keys.

Still, if it uses blues or blacks it's not suited for me anyway.
EDIT: Just seen that hotlinked image now. I wonder if it's just blacks, or if they'll offer a choice. (doubt red is an option though)

With a hype like that.. I expected a bit more. Smells like datacomp. I kinda like the wrist-rest though. Now it will depend a lot on the price how well this keyboard will do.

Yes, it will depend on the price.

BTW it comes with a Scratch Keypuller.


Sixty is too difficult to find MX Switches with leds?

You can order them. But you can also just order leds and change them. The LEDs in the MX switches are standard.

At least the keys don't look rubberized.

Actually I'm pleasantly surprises the ZOMG MAH KEYS posts haven't been piling in by now for the Xarmors. Give it another 6 months.

Looking forward to the reviews on this keyboard. I don't know if I could live without the left Windows key though as I've been using awesome lately and it heavily uses the super key.

What is it with the braided cables anyway? How much of an elite gamer do you have to be to need one?

Why throw in a keycap puller if they don't throw in a few alternative keycaps?

At least there are no fake reviews.

I find that key-puller scratches quite a bit less than most of the scratch pullers.
