It's pretty good. Had mine for a couple months now and I like it quite a bit. The aluminium chassis is very solid, the wrist rest is very comfy, the backlighting goes from dim to moderate to burn your eyes out of the back of your skull, the media keys are nice, the macros are recessed (which I like), and there's a nice USB port with fullspeed passthrough. The only thing not to like is that the macro keys, function keys and insert through page down are all rubber dome.

Whoa, looks awesome, but then I saw the enter key.

What's wrong with the Enter key?

Enter key seems fine to me. Software is decent, seems functionally identical to my old G15 software.

Now I'm curious, what's wrong with the enter key? Don't really see anything amiss with mine

Looking at the photos on Corsair's site, there seems to be two different enter keys?

Software is ok, it works well for me now , but it is not the most user friendly or bug free. Not all keys are mechanical. If you routinely use the F-keys for example I would not consider a purchase. Cherry MX red keys are an acquired taste. I love them for both gaming and typing, but would not recommend without trying it first.

Other than those things, if you like the red switches, I love the overall keyboard. I like the keycaps and the way they feel. It is good for me, but I cant say it is a keyboard anyone would like.

I would look into the Ducky Shine as well, and think about what kind of switches you want.
