I like that you can see the metal construction of the keyboard. The lighting is a bit lack luster though. Maybe they could of included a white back plate that you could lay under the keys as a option to make the chroma lighting look brighter. Sure some one modding will provide a tutorial on how to make you own soon. Also I use the usb on the keyboard frequently for thumb drives, and a lot of review videos praise razer for having this feature, so it will be a missed since its not included on the "X". I think i prefer the original black widow chroma over the "X" since it has all the bell and whistles minus the metal surface.
