    I find it weird that the secondary function for keys is below the primary function, doesn't look right and when you press shift it indicates that it moves things up rather than down so is counter intuitive when you look at the keyboard. If it wasn't for the odd key design and lack of dedicated media controls I would consider the board because the 5 programmable keys on the side are all I need.

    Currently the Logitech G710+ is ticking the most boxes for me. I prefer it over this because the keys don't seem backwards.

    Non-standard layout on my Thermaltake Meka G1 is very annoying, more than I thought it would be.

    Wouldn't pay over 100 squid for a keyboard anyway, seems excessive.

    Cherry MX switches have an LED which is off-centre. If the keys were etched in the "normal" fashion, the symbols would be lit up and the numbers would not.

    edit: The Corsair K70 demonstrates this well, as it has normal key etching on most keys and some swappable keys. Compare the brightness of the 6 and 7 here:

    it just looks like a modernized version of the ISKU to be honest, but nice and mechanical

    Perhaps I'm weird but spending over £100 I would expect a better solution than etch the keys differently. Although now that I've noticed the Logitech is the same

    Every single Cherry MX keyboard will be the same - either the etching is off centre, or the key is dark such that only the stuff at the top is lit up properly. Same on every brand of keyboard.

    They have released mechanical keyboard too late already and it looks ordinary. If they want to release a mechanical keyboard later than other brands, they have to step it up and make it look really good than the other competition. The macro keys are like the Razer BlackWidow mechanical keyboard.
