    Looks nice, if I got it I would probably toss out the arm rest part, they always look so uncomfortable to me.

    Got mine in the mail today. The keyboard feels a bit smaller than the black widow, in fact it is smaller. The keys are a bit more "compact" so this will take some getting used too. I am also used to wresting my thumbs below the spacebar & with the new design, there is no "keyboard" their. These are just little things I have noticed after using the black widow for so darn long. The colors are gorgeous, the leather wrist guard is much softer than I expected BUT it does get warm pretty fast. Looks great but I have a feeling I could have done without it.

    I got the Huntsman Elite on Saturday at the St. Louis MicroCenter. Went there with my friend just to browse, wasn't expecting to buy anything, but I decided to see if they had one of the new Huntsman keyboards on display. Wanted to see how it felt. Asked the Micro Center employee and he said he didn't think they had any yet. They didn't have a display so I was walking out of the aisle when some boxes on the top shelf caught my eye. They had four of each (Huntsman Elite and regular). The employee was surprised and asked if I wanted to try it out, so he opened the box at the service counter and we all took turns typing on it. I loved the click and the feel, even though we didn't have it hooked up to anything to see the lights. Decided I wanted to replace my aging BlackWidow V1 Chroma and bought it after having a great chat with the employees about it. I don't really feel any speed improvements over my other mechs (mainly BlackWidow Chroma V1 and V1 TE) but I like the look and feel and the keys click a bit more solidly and loudly than the old Green switches which I like as well. The Chroma underglow and key backlighting is even better than before, and it simply just worked out of the box with my newest Keyboard Visualizer 3.06 which was even better. Travelling right now so I'm using it with my Blade Pro, but I can't wait to get home and hook it up with my desktop.

    looks nice but you guys should really concentrate on fixing your various softwares first. both synapse and cortex are resource heavy, buggy, and have compatibility issues. cortex in particular is almost malware-like in its behaviors, spawning multiple processes that re-open when you try to close them

    1. He never said "everybody", he just said "people", meaning that there are SOME people that use macro keys, which is correct.
    2. Not people who are picky, only people that want the product to justify the hefty price of $200. For that price, it should be P-E-R-F-E-C-T.
    3. "maybe in the next batch it will be better"? Damn man, you have to be a fanboy in order to try and use that as an actual excuse for (again) $200 keyboard... *shakes head in disbelief*
     
  17. So, i bought the huntsmann, and it looks quite nice right now, but is there a way to get the some rings or something, so that the noise isn't that loud?....

    Calling me fanboy to make a point in a razer forum o_O

    The way the keys are designed I don't think regular O rings will work. The Cherry stem is surrounded by a plastic square.

    There is a huuuge difference between being a brand loyal and being a fanboy. If you think that company you are supporting cannot do wrong, no matter how much they mess up, you are a fanboy - blind follower without critical thinking, unable to have your own opinion.

    When you are loyal to the brand you will praise the company when it does good things and you will criticize it when it screws up. Thanks to fans like that companies that listen their community are generally doing great, as they tend to improve their products based on the feedback they get from their customers.

    Apple is an exception to the rule, and they are doing great only because huge percentage of their customers are fanboys, so no matter how many times Apple screws them over, claiming that they are "holding the phone wrong" for example, they are coming back for more :)
