Completing the key features (geddit?) are the two buttons labelled L1 and L2

I stopped reading at this line. It's acceptable for my six year old to grin and say 'geddit?' when he makes a funny but come on... how old are you guys?

Good job for taking it apart, always good to see in hardware reviews.

Same price I paid for my G80 with reds. Definitely know which I'd recommend.

Do we really need these types of keyboards now that mechanical are showing themselves to be fancy and superior now.

Cheers, fixed.

I'd largely agree - the market for premium membrane keyboards has been annihilated by affordable mechanical. That said, as mentioned in the review, just one or two more features and the Raw could've justified itself as a gaming device.

At least your joke was slightly amusing. Not as good as the crackers my 6yo comes up with, but you'll catch up one day.

Buy the cheapest Microsoft wired keyboard you can find (hint - under £7.00 on Amazon) or buy a mechanical keyboard.

Who would pay 50 notes for some rubber keyed monstrosity like this?

Getting a keyboard that simply works is quite a hassle these days. Bloated and completely insane software (Razer), problems with keys not working after using standby mode (Razer again), certain key combination that have been artificially blocked to sell more expensive "gaming" keyboards (Logitech).

I would go for mechanical if they weren't so expensive and noisy.
