    Good lord, those images look dull..... Not just Noir or anything but, a seriously depressing version of a Dashiel Hammet style novel.

    Suddenly RGB doesn't seem so bad, no?

    They look "artsy". ;-)

    And yes, RGB overload still seems (and looks) bad.

    Yes, and that's what's so sickening about it... It's only missing a few fag ends and one still-lit cigarette, softly trailing smoke from one of those ashtray-looking pots by the scissors.

    So use it as it's intended and tone it down to something more tasteful...

    Thought it was silver at first. Then I realised it was black, not interested anymore. I wish companies would offer more white or silver keyboards.

    Eh, looks nice, slightly too expensive, would probably only buy for one specific friend if it had cherry greens.

    Why do people hate RGB so much. By its very nature you can stick it on one color.

    1/. Because there are comparatively few components that implement lighting with decent designs.
    2/. Because most such components are shown in builds with little regard to finished aesthetics.
    3/. Because most such components are shown with the 'demo mode' rainbow pattern, to prove it can do all colours, which just looks awful.
    4/. Because many companies charge too much for RGB implementation.

    There's some very interesting silent switches out there (Cherry Silent Red, Aliaz, Zeal Zilents) that I want to see hit the big markets. They have little rubber pads on the keys to really tone down the sound and I'm surprised Razer hasn't jumped on this boat for this "professional" model.

    Reds are linear, so catering to a different audience.
    As for quiet tactile, there is an alternative to padding with the Hako switches,
    The Hako Clear, True and Violet switches are stiffer on the last portion of the travel beyond the actuation.
    Therefore rather than minimising the result of a bottom out, they instead try to prevent it without affecting the force required to actuate.
