I actually bought this keyboard about two months ago. I've used a range of mechanical keyboards from Logitech and Razer and a couple of other manufacturers but this is the only one I've really, really been happy with so far.

The last keyboard I had was one of the Razer something something. I accidentally didn't look properly on its key caps and their font, because that's one of the biggest gripes I had with it (might seem like a minor complaint but it looks freaking stupid). That, and that it felt extremely plastic (probably because it was all made out of plastic).

That, and all its extra macro keys I never use.

I personally like the G413 because it looks clean, it doesn't have any extra buttons I don't use and has a small frame. It also feels heavy which adds to the quality feeling factor.

I also prefer the switches over my other cherry switches that I've used. But that's just me and a very subjective opinion.

The only gripe I have with the G413 is that I'm limited to red backlighting on the black keyboard. I'd preferred white, but I could only get that with the silver keyboard.

Note: The G413 Carbon doesn't have RGB lighting and is not customizable at all (except for some macros with the software suite). So the author of the article should probably look up the product they're promoting - especially since it's a sponsored article.

for me it has always been blue on black for keyboards. but I would agree that red is a bad choice.

having had any number of gaming boards with varying success (Steelseries are the worst and Logitech is the best) I went to mechanical bordes over gaming boards and I'll never look back, honestly with gaming boards I was getting on average 12-18 months out of a board. I've had my Ducky board now over 2 years (can't remember when I bought it exactly but definitely over 2 years) and it's still as responsive and good as it was the day I bought it. so I can't help but feel this "aircraft grade" is the new way to try to sell a device again in a market that has hamstrung itself by returning to hard wearing mechanical boards. as to be honest a firm has lost at least 1 sale from me since I got my ducky, so I can see firms coming out with new metrics and buzzwords to try to sell something that people no longer need.

The "aircraft grade" is talking about the frame, and it's rare that the frame breaks before your keys. Unless, of course, you throw your keyboard around, in which case the Logitech G413 would probably be perfect for you, since its top frame (not the bottom of the keyboard) is made out of "aircraft grade aluminum" instead of the regular plastic most keyboards use. :P

only once it would have helped, my G15 had to be held together with tape and blue tack for a while after I dropped the PC on it. but really unless you are an angry gamer how likely are you going to actually need something more than a bit plastic.

So this keyboard is durable enough after having a few raging moments of gaming that made my hamfist my keyboard, everything should still function normally? This Razer Deathstalker keyboard is very durable but it won't last for long...
