I was very sceptical about this keyboard mainly because of the price. There are a lot of keyboards with lower latency for cheaper, but the hot swappable nature of this keyboard is what drew me in. My older gaming mechanical keyboard started to have failing switches which I could not easily replace. Sure I could break out the soldering iron and hope to fix it, but the peace of mind of being able to just plug and play a dead switch is great. I got banana switches and they are great. You get physical feedback and typing is quick and feels really good. I use this keyboard wired for school and gaming and so far had no issues with latency. While I probably won't, I like that I have the ability that I can use it wirelessly with a few other devices.
