    I just bought it, I love the keyboard, but I hate Synapse 3.0. It's frustrating to use, now it feels bloated because of Synapse 3.0. I'll probably end up returning it tomorrow and picking up a Corsair instead. :slightly_sad:

    Most of the Razer's keyboard have a TE, i think it's just a matter of time before they release one.

    I am most definitely not going back to a BW, this thing is just too awesome. After a few days of getting used to, I find myself being faster at typing, and the over FEEL of the keyboard is more premium

    For those who dont mind the price .... RECOMMENDED!

    Few things in this keybord can be improve :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: media keycaps are not transparent so light dont shine like other keys simple fix but yeah huge miss. Next thing is front connector to this keybord in relase someone sad thet we see devices that can be connected to this keybbord and nothing so far this second miss. On othear aspect i cant say anything becose it's great.

    How is everyone finding the kb's feet? They don't prop up high enough to create the usual incline I'm used to. The feet tend to drop with any slight movement, too, requiring them to be re-opened and re-adjusted. Tempted to attach my own keyboard feet.

    I think releasing this keyboard with opto-mechanical switches is a step in right direction.
    Due to contactless optical actuation, finally these switches are immune to chatter and can be considered 100% reliable. This keyboard will increase the overall quality and prestige of Razer products. Because let's face it: in metal contact switches, you can never know when a switch will develop chattering. I believe at least no Huntsman keyboard will be RMA'd because of key chatter.

    If I might be so bold, I suggest Razer to completely abandon using traditional metal contact type switches and adopt opto-mechanical switches from now on.
    You get best of both worlds by using opto-mechanical switches: The chatter-free nature, thus reliability of optical sensors combined with traditional mechanical keyboard switch feel. Win-Win.

    The new purple clicky switches used in Huntsman are just great. I think Razer developers are already aware that now all we need is 2 more types of opto-mechanical switches:

    1) Tactile (but Non-Clicky) Opto-Mechanical Switch.
    2) Linear Opto-Mechanical Switch.

    I have the Huntsman keyboard for 1 week now and enjoying it so far. Minimalist, clean design... I like it.

    @Tysean everything take time :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: for now i think more devices with this type of switch will be great like new keypad people wait for long time and later we see how market will behave.

    Has anyone found a fix for the synapse software????
    The synapse software works only after the first reboot after the installation of the software , on next reboot it stop working.
    i have to unistall and then install to make it work again.
    I cant believe that a keyboard I bought for more than 200 euros has no software update to fix this problem.
    none of the effects work this is very dissapointing.

    I have the same issue but you dont do anything it's synapse itself issue ;/ We must wait for update with fix.
