The best thing about this keyboard is the switch. It's a hall-effect switch and well done. Hall-Effect is a electronics theory. Hall-Effect electronics switch needs no conductor contact. So, key switches using it has no metal rubbing, making it super smooth.

Hall-Effect switch is supposedly the best linear switch, better than Cherry MX Red and others.

Only the alphanumeric area keys are hall-switch. The function keys, arrows, home/end/page cluster, number pad, are using gateron red switches.

Each hall-switch's actuation distance can be customized.

Here's key switch expert Chyrosran22's review.
