1 star off because one of my keys isn't backlit =/
and there's no way for me to replace it because CM doesn't have the part in their store. So 4/5

Nice heavy weight keyboard for those that like to have somewhere to put their hands while typing or gaming for a long duration.
The usb 3.0 ports is a nice touch for quick access for a flash drive or game controller in my case for the few games I prefer a controller over a keyboard. Kind of wish the back-lighting was selectable since white seems to be a little dull.
There is one thing that I don't like, the arm rest needs an aluminum skin. At the least an aftermarket add-on to protect the surface from heavy wear. I've already managed to put a small nick in it with only a week or two of use.
My thoughts on an aluminum skin is fairly cost effective and involves a light weight material used for laptop skins that is actually a synthetic adhesive backed material that has a smooth surface and resists wear and tear of the surface and allows it to last longer.
The average selling point is around $10.00 for something of the size needed and the material used.
