I love this keyboard. I bought it with blue switches. The footprint is minimal, perfect! I've been a Razer snob for years and have been really loyal to my Blackwidow but this keyboard just dethroned it. I also tried a Corsair K70 with blue switches. I didn't like it as much and the software was really clunky. The switches are better, the construction is better and the FEEL is better. It's a joy to type on. I use it for work and for gaming. I couldn't be happier.
