I think this is quite similar to the Steelseries 7G which is a great keyboard if you like MX Black switches. TBH, it looks like it's a well built keyboard.

If your concern is the build quality, I think you'll be OK...these mechanical boards are typically well built. If you're worried about using MX Black switches, unfortunately you'll just have to try one to find out. Memory Express is quite good to deal with...if you can't get your mojo with it, they'll exchange it for you.

So after alot of reviews and some decision time I bought the meka g1
Initially the stiffer keys were harder to get used to in battelfield my pinky got tired holding shift
After a couple of weeks I must say I am very satisfied!

I like the minimalistc design
The keys give great response to the fingers after you get used to the stiffer keys
the palmrest is a great addition
the mediakeys are good for music
not too much annoying noise from clicking like cherry blues (unless thats your thing)
For Starcraft needed some time to get adjusted but I feel I am almost getting it perfect now.

Somewhat pricey... but i found it on bestdirect at 104.50$ So cheaper then elsewhere.. also canadacomputers has it for 105$ i think

If you have any specific questions

I just picked this up from Canada Computers (it is on sale for $105) and I'm about to plug it in. I'll let you guys know how it is.
