I have a razer blackwidow, not the ultimate model. It's pretty sweet, so far I have no complaints. Been using it for couple months now. Its buttons are just a fraction farther away from each other which took a bit of getting used to from me, since I've used low profile buttoned keyboards mostly.
Cool. Thinking about picking it up for gaming. I hear the mechanical key's are supposed to make you a better typist and all that jazz so supposedly it's THE keyboard to have. Little nervous about some reviews I've been reading about keys being too close together so that everytime you press the space bar (for example) the alt key comes down with it. Also not a big fan of the lack of indent on the caps lock key, that'll take some getting used to. You do any gaming with it? Curious about ghosting issues, I've heard the WSAD keys can have issues registering when shift+alt are pressed as well.
Also got my eyes on DASKeyboard...
I've had some weird ghosting problems with WASD and shift+alt, but just couple of times on the whole frame of time I've owned the thing, and yes, I do quite bit of gaming with it. The WASD problems went away pretty early after they updated the firmware. I just tried a whole bunch of combinations with ctrl, alt and shift pressed down. They all worked including all kinds of WASD movements plus R and spacebar as well. So no issues for me. I've had no sticking together-problem with alt and spacebar either. I do have the scandinavian layout version of the board though, I have no idea if the ghosting issues are just a USA layout problem.
