It's a very durable keyboard, but the keys gradually become greasy (even though I never use my PC while eating).

My opinion is to spend the extra $20 and get a Razer Blackwidow. Much better for typing.
That is kind of the point of the mechanical key switch keyboard. The switches are designed to activate before the key bottoms out. Unlike in a membrane keyboard were more often then not it won't activate until the key is pushed all the way down. as the arm rests that is an issue but can easily be solved by either picking up a rest or getting the 7g on which has a wrist rest.
