G'day all,

Saw this keyboard today and it looks fairly awesome IMO.

Just wondering if anybody has seen one in action?

Strike 7

Expensive though.

Too "gimmicky" in my opinion. And personally, I could never use one of these. Not only because they're just too much for me (not talking about the price here), but also because these type of toys never come with more than two languages on them. And I need three languages on my keyboard.

Looks - Awful
Build Quality - Awful
Price - Extortionate

Think I'll give this a miss.

Old Cyborg 7 looks way better. Gimmicky - yes, quite, either. Fun looking. Better than Razer by far. Don't know about build quality, though.

Anything that expensive needs to be 100% mechanical.

^ Hate that clack-clack noise. I wish someone would invent totally silent keyboard, leaving only tactile feedback.

that keyboard looks a bit too much, I kind of dig the design but such keyboard it's extremely expensive and it doesn't even have mechanical keys...

Too "gimmicky" in my opinion. And personally, I could never use one of these. Not only because they're just too much for me (not talking about the price here), but also because these type of toys never come with more than two languages on them. And I need three languages on my keyboard.


I have a German Keyboard (K90) and I use it to type in Spanish, German and English.... what exactly are you referring to when you say that they don't come with more languages?

I'm referring to that the keys are only available with English alphabet letters on them, while I need Russian and Ukrainian extra to that.

You really need to do some more research into the types of mechanical keyboards. There have been silent ones available for a few years now. Das make the most recognisable one.

Yes, I'll admit I do. I can't afford them anyway, so I don't bother.

May I ask how you know this?
I did check a couple of reviews which stated that build quality was good.

shh he's trying to justify why he doesn't like it, not that he has anything to back up his oppinions
