Compared to most of its rivals, Roccat has been relatively slow to take advantage of the rising interest in mechanical keyboards, but that's about to change this quarter when the company ships its first Cherry MX-based offering. Roccat is preparing...

Okay, that preview/reveal/commercial video is pretty hype. It only hurts me to thing there are keyboards with RGB LED lighting, USB3, etc. But then again none of them (or almost none of them to my recollection) have individually lit (and controllable) keys, preferring to use zone lighting instead, nor do they have an awesome video like that.

And "a powerful 2 megabytes of flash memory." XD

That's the best keyboard promo video I've seen in a while, let's hope the product lives up to expectations.

And just like with all the gaming mice, useful for righties only. Funny how its never occurred to these companies that right-brained males are far more likely to be PC gamers and usually have better-than-average incomes (in fact, nearly all of the serious game addicts I know are lefties). Sure, its only 10% of the population their ignoring but that 10% spends a lot of money on gaming and has addictive tendencies. At least Razor put it to a vote, proving that there was indeed a market for left-handed gaming peripherals.

Why do keyboard makers always choose to forgo the media buttons on these gaming keyboards?? I can honestly not find a mechanical keyboard with backlighting with a decent array of media buttons. I cannot stand it when the media buttons aren't seperate and large enough to jab in a hurry with one finger

I know what you mean, the reason I have a Razer Deathadder Left Handed Edition is because its one of the rarer products out there, If only a Keyboard maker would make a Keyboard where they concentrate on the arrow Keys...

Which is why I have a Cyborg V7, they actually gave the arrow keys some attention.
But It would be nice to find a mechanical Keyboard like this that concentrated on lefties for once :)

All of my media buttons are global hotkeys (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Space, or similar)...
