Overall, this keyboard is one of the most solid solutions I have ever seen on the market for gaming. It maintains all the great functionality of the gamer style keyboard by giving the user assignable hot keys and at the same time, the solid cherry key switches will mean less "uh-oh" and "whoops!" when you accidentally toss that grenade at your team mates.
There is some room for improvement, though; it would have been really nice to see some lighting on this keyboard, even with the bright orange WASD keys it's still hard to make out any of them in near darkness of your monitors glow. It's a feature that every manufacturer and their dog are pumping out and it wouldn't take anything from the board if it was added, so fingers crossed for revision 2.0!
Never before have I encountered such a solid and weighty keyboard; I think in the event of the zombie apocalypse, my weapon of choice would be the GK-K8000 gaming keyboard. At the very least I could listen to my music on it while I fight off the zombie hoards!
