    I really like the innovation with the new key switch, a very interesting idea to say the least.

    ps. I just looked up the price here in Canada $269.99

    I don't particularly like mechanical keyboards but this one is pretty cool!

    Anyone tried the huntsman elite yet? wondering how the actuation response is like compared to the conventional razer keys. What kind of resistance are those keys most closely comparable to? Thnx! =D

    What the hell is wrong with these guys! They perform incredible periphericals for us. I fell so great about being into this community. Just got my lancehead and my ornata but god. Ill have to get this keyboard too -.-

    I just watched Hardware Canucks review and I am really loving the design, as they made a step in right direction, making the footprint smaller and making the keyboard look less flashy and "gamery", which should appeal to wider customer range apart from gaming community...

    They are clickier than Razer Greens (even the new version of Greens, tried against a BlackWidow Chroma V1 and V2). They feel somewhere between MX Blues and what I remember of the old IBM Model M type keyboards (though I haven't used one of those in 20 some years, was in elementary school last time I used one). They're very loud which I like. They have a bit more resistance than MX Blues as well in my opinion (haven't done any scientific tests so maybe I'm wrong). I really like typing on this thing.

    As for the opto-mechanical switches providing some sort of gaming advantage, I'm going to call BS on that. Maybe they do actuate a millimeter higher than conventional mechanical keys but do I feel this impacts my gaming? Absolutely not. I haven't noticed a difference in response switching from a BlackWidow Chroma to the Huntsman Elite.

    Does touching your PC case give you the same shock? I would guess the metal of the keyboard is somehow connected to USB ground. Your case should also be connected to ground. If touching the grounded metal of your PC shocks you, you probably should investigate your home wiring or replace your power supply. You are using a proper 3 prong grounded plug into the outlet to power your PC right? Any device that defeats the third prong (such as those 2 to 3 adapters or a power strip with the third prong pulled out) defeats the protection from shocks that the ground provides.

    Good news is the huntsman keyboard just arrived at my doorstep.. bad news is that the keyboard is defective or I am defective because it just keeps repeating keys ( at least 10x) for each key stroke... and its all the keys.

    Looks great, if there's ever a silent switch version I might pop on this.

    I'm with you on this one, I just love the TKL Tournament X I have, a great board and don't miss the num pad one bit as I never use the damn thing anyhow, I'm not an accountant or banker lol. Just love the extra space that the shorter KB offers in this setup, TKL for me from now on for sure.
