I just bough this keyboard this exact model with the brown switches and I would recommend it for any gamer who also types a lot! Currently this is a very fair price for this exact model too. There are other models with the cherry mx silver switches which are the speed switch but aren't recommended if you do a lot of typing but not to say you can't type on them. The RGB lighting is top notch, usb pass thru great, profile memory a plus, and great build quality. I read someone complaining about it not having a removable cord. It's a heavy duty braided cable with a USB 3.0 upstream cable built in that's why it's not removable and so heavy duty. This wasn't designed to be extremely portable but for performance and durability. Not everyone will like corsair just like some don't care for razer or cool master. I'm just saying you aren't getting a POS when purchasing this keyboard. Would recommend that you and purchase again. Thank you Massdrop!!!
