This is like their fancy Logitech G910 Keyboard, without the gaudy look.

Feature highlight:

  1. Romer-G Mechanical Key Switches. (it's quiet. I like it better than Cherry MX)
  2. Mulimedia key buttons.
  3. Wheel for sound level control. (very nice!)
  4. Customizable RGB Lighting, one LED per key.
  5. Plug-and-Play. No need โ€œdriverโ€ software.

Lots of detailed reviews on amazon. Most are very positive.

No On-Board Memory

The customization of colors requires the logitech software to run. Otherwise, it's default rainbow-wash.

This is a major flaw. For keyboard of this price, it should have on-board memory.

Conclusion

No on-board memory is a major problem.

And no extra function keys.

Together, it means, this keyboard is just a normal keyboard, plus a good key switch and color show. This keyboard does not provide any real functionality. Functionality is what gaming keyboard should be about.

The price difference of this and the gaudy Logitech G910 Keyboard is only about $10.

I'd rather go with the G910, even though it's ugly.
